Questions to Ponder

  • How are you actively seeking to recognize Heavenly Father's influence in your daily life?

  • What would a "constant stream of divine guidance" help you to do in your life and family? What would that feel/look/sound like?

  • Along with prayer and keeping the covenants you have made; how can you draw more divine guidance into your life?

  • How do you recognize the influence of Heavenly Father in your life each day?

  • How do we pray more like our Savior? How does this change the way we receive answers to our prayers?

  • How have you been an answer to someone's prayer this week or how has someone been an answer to yours?

  • What have you been prompted to do this week that you acted on, and how did that affect your day/week?

  • How do you recognize answers to your prayers?

  • When have you had a prayer immediately answered and how did that feel?

  • What are some blessings you have received when a prayer was answered differently than you had hoped?

  • How do you stay faithful and hopeful while waiting for answers when they don't come right away or as you had hoped?

  • How has "waiting on the Lord" changed your life for good?
