There is no medication or operation that can fix the many spiritual woes and maladies that we face.
There is, however, a remedy — one that may seem surprising — because it flies in the face of our natural intuitions. Nevertheless, its effects have been validated by scientists as well as men and women of faith.
I am referring to the healing power of gratitude.
No matter our situation, showing gratitude for our privileges is a fast-acting and long-lasting spiritual prescription.
So, dear friends, may I prescribe two activities to help us experience the healing power of gratitude.
1. Use social media as a gratitude journal for the next seven days.
2. Unite in thanking God through prayer.
PRAYER BRINGS FORTH MIRACLES!
President Russell M. Nelson," The healing power of gratitude" worldwide message of hope, November 20, 2020
We all need help, strength, and peace. Whether that be in the world as a human race or whether that be in our lives personally. For nearly all of us, we need it in both.
We have a remedy for these ill effects. A prescription from a prophet of God... so this prescription comes directly from the Lord Himself.
So let's be grateful. Let's show that gratitude. Let's express thanks through prayer and thought. Let's count blessings, not problems.
That is how we are healed. It will heal our society, it will heal our family, it will heal our hearts.
