I've been focused on humility the last couple of days. Sometimes I get running in all directions and forget that the Lord will bless me if I just take time to ask him. First I have to figure out what my goal is in asking, and then I pray specifically, according to my desires. This helps me focus on what I really want and changes me from an overanxious, whining child to a humble follower of Christ who desires a blessing.
Be thou humble; and the Lord thy God shall lead thee by the hand, and give thee answer to thy prayers. D&C 112:10
