"Prayer is one of the greatest blessings we have while here on earth. Through prayer we can communicate with our Heavenly Father and seek His guidance daily. Jesus taught, 'Ye must always pray unto the Father in my name' (3 Ne. 18:19). We should pray each day that we will have the power to resist temptation. Amulek teaches us that we should pray 'morning, mid-day, and evening' and that our hearts should 'be full, drawn out in prayer unto [God] continually' (Alma 34:21, 27). Our daily prayers influence our thoughts, our words, and our actions. In order to retain a remission of our sins, it is essential that we ask our Heavenly Father each day for strength to stay in the straight and narrow way." - Keith Crockett, "Retaining a Remission of Sin," Ensign (CR), November 2000, p.77

"Elder Bruce R. McConkie taught us that 'all progress in spiritual things is conditioned upon the prior attainment of humility.' (Mormon Doctrine, 2nd ed. (1966), 370.) Humility has been described as having the 'desire to submit to the Lord,' the 'desire to seek the Lord's will and glory,' and the 'desire to remove pride.' (Gospel Principles (1997), 4.) King Benjamin told his people that they should 'always retain in remembrance, the greatness of God, and your own nothingness, and his goodness and long-suffering towards you, unworthy creatures, and humble yourselves even in the depths of humility' (Mosiah 4:11). The Lord counseled in the Doctrine and Covenants that 'inasmuch as they were humble they might be made strong, and blessed from on high, and receive knowledge from time to time' (D&C 1:28)." - Keith Crockett, "Retaining a Remission of Sin," Ensign (CR), November 2000, p.77
