“They Were Filled with Desire”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet
Faith and spiritual desire leads one to yearn to commune with God. Sincere prayer yields further desire to know God and to live a life that is pleasing to him. Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ gives life and power to personal desire and moves one to action. Prayer is vocalized faith, and when accompanied by the Spirit it fills the soul with increased love for God and desire to serve him and keep his commandments.
