In a talk by Elder Bednar, he talks of an experience where Sister Bednar was asked to say a prayer of only gratitude. Despite the fact that they had just learned of a tragic event if the life of a friend, she did so. The result was a deeper sense of love and joy than could have been obtained by praying for comfort, though doing so is right and good. It helped them to see plainly the joy and comfort that had been and always was being given to them. I would challenge everyone to give a prayer of only gratitude each day. I know that doing so will grant greater strength, joy, and love each day.
Thanks for your messages everyone! I hope you get better soon Bishop Christensen! You are in my prayers too.
