Watch the video above and talk about it with a friend or mentor.

Prayer doesn’t have to be formal or a ritual, as in common in Mormonism. Prayer is a spontaneous, intimate conversation with the God who loves you.

Key Points:

  • Prayer for Latter-day Saints is Often Very Formal
  • God Invites Prayer to Be an Intimate Conversation with Him
  • It Can Be Hard to Learn to Pray in a New Way
