-After President Kimball became President of the
church he said “I thought I knew how to pray
before, but now I am really learning how to pray.” (“Spencer W. Kimball: A True Disciple of Jesus
Christ” by Elder Marvin J Ashton, Gen. Conf. April
1985)

-“Bless our enemies. Help us to understand them, and
them to understand us.” This was an oft repeated
phrase in President Kimball’s prayers. (“Spencer W. Kimball: A True Disciple of Jesus
Christ” by Elder Marvin J Ashton, Gen. Conf. April
1985)

-When I was at the Missionary Training Center (MTC) in Provo Utah, Elder Jeffrey R Holland of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles came to speak to us. He was asked how we get the spirit. He gave 3 councils: 1. Search the scriptures. Search them long and deep. 2. Pray. Pray like you’re banging down the doors to heaven, begging, pleading to be heard, desperately. 3. Once you have the spirit, try to not loose the spirit by offending Him with bad choices.
