---and especially when He is about healing. Do you suppose it is because people like their illness and really don't want to believe in themself, or in God, and therefore don't want to have hope or faith, so choose not to pray?

If you took a paper and made 2 columns, and titled one "Satan" and the other "God", then wrote the messages both would want you to believe about yourself, about prayer, about God and salvation, you would begin to understand where these false messages about ourselves orriginate.

There are no two people exactly the same, so how could one be created right and another wrong? It just isn't possible.

God wanted you to be born
God loves you
God wants you to love the scriptures
God wants you to pray to him

Anything kind or good comes from God, but it is hard to believe good things about ourself.


Satan cheats, lies, bears false witness, and makes it easy to believe false messages about ourselves, because once we get on the spiral going down we tend to make ourselves keep going down, down, down.

Satan says you don't need to pray
Satan says you're not worth anything
Satan tries to hide the scriptures from us
Satan wants to destroy our family

But if we can make ourself do 2 things, it'll make all the difference in the world, because it will lead us toward the light.
1. Pray and
2. prayerfully read scripture.
Call on the Lord when you need help with something. Pray and open your scriptures. Try opening them randomly with a need and I'll bet you'll find His words give you answer.

The thing about scripture is you can read the same chapter over and over and each time you will read something new, because it keeps teaching.

Right now I've been reading (listening to) 3 Nephi, http://www.lds.org/mp3/newarchive/0,18615,5249-1,00.html when the Savior visits the Americas right after His crucifixion. I listen to it on my iPod every night when I go to bed, and I hear something new every single night. It's the most amazing thing. I love the scriptures. In them ye find eternal life. http://scriptures.lds.org/john/5/39#39
