I remember coming home one night desperately wanting to talk to someone. I was 17 or 18 and I was really confused about the current relationship I was in. My parents were excellent listeners so I went straight to their room to tell them about my concerns. In the middle of my dramatic story, I looked up and my parents were sound asleep. I burst into tears and went to my room to call a friend. But my phone had no signal! Just as I was beginning to think the whole world was conspiring against me, I thought, “I guess I could pray…maybe He’ll listen to me.” I spoke to Heavenly Father for a long time, and cried a little more. I will never forget how loved I felt that night. When I felt I had no one one else to turn to Heavenly Father was patiently waiting for me to turn to Him. It’s been about 10 years since that night and I’ve had countless moments since then where I’ve literally felt his arms around me and been filled with peace and love. It is strength that can only come from God. If you wonder why or how Our Father in Heaven listens to YOU here is a recent quote I heard from President Henry B. Eyring said, “Heavenly Father hears your prayers. He loves you. He knows your name. Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and our Redeemer. He loves you beyond your ability to comprehend.”

Read an amazing talk on continuing revelation here.
