The Savior was prayerful by nature. Before His earthly ministry began, the Savior spent forty days in the wilderness engaged in fervent fasting and prayer. And on the Mount of Transfiguration, in Gethsemane, on the cross, and on other occasions, He engaged in fervent prayers to His Heavenly Father, expressing gratitude and pleading for guidance and assistance. You will take heed unto yourself as you, too, become prayerful by nature.
W. Mark Bassett, "Take Heed and Go Forth", BYU Speeches, November 16, 2021
How many times are our prayers just words? How many times are they repetitious to fulfill some goal?
When Kyle came home the first time, he mentioned that sometimes his prayers lasted 30 minutes. He even said they would be longer if he didn't need to be in bed by 10:30.
I know I don't pray with this much sincerity very often. I will try.
