"When we are desperate to be guided by heaven we work harder than ever to tune into heaven." Wendy Watson Nelson

We have always loved the description that explains prayer as a form of work. Like all good things, connecting with God takes time, patience, effort and WORK. But you know what, we know that it pays off! Which is exactly why we are all ready to get to work on this week's study guide challenge with you. Get out your pens (or your fingers 😉) with us this week as we make a prayer list throughout each day. Let us know how this added effort benefits you and your prayers throughout the week! And if you haven't already downloaded this month's study guide, click on the link in our profile to find it.

“Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?” Corrie Ten Boom
👆🏼One of our favorite quotes on prayer! Another favorite thing of ours, announcing the two complimentary tickets to @saltldsretreat this fall-- @emilylauren00 @amyjojojojojo you've won! Shoot us an email at hello@thesmallseed.com to connect!

"Prayer should never be a matter of trying to change God’s mind, to persuade Him of the rightness of our request, or to counsel Him as to what is best. God’s will is perfect. He knows all things and sees the end from the beginning. He knows better than we do what is best for us. Sometimes we fervently plead for the Lord to give us certain things that He knows are not ultimately in our best interest or in that of a loved one: for example, to receive a certain job offer in a specific city or to prolong the life of a terminally ill or aged family member. The first order of prayer should be to learn the will of God and be given the strength to accept it. 'Thy will be done' ought to grace all prayers, as it does the Lord’s Prayer." -Bruce C. Porter
We loved this quote from this month's study guide up on the blog. Have you been digging in? How is it impacting you?

“God’s acquaintance is not made hurriedly.” E.M. Bounds
This month our theme is prayer, and in our study guide we've included weekly challenges to help you, and us!, improve our prayers.
This week's challenge is to spend more time pondering--both before and after you pray. Listen for what God would have you pray about. Listen for His response. Recognize the thoughts that enter your mind after you pray and commit to act on them.
We're excited to take this challenge with you! 🙏🏼 We know this small act will better our relationship with God and our ability to receive His guidance this week. 👊🏼
Tag a friend to invite them to take the challenge with you!

GIVEAWAY CLOSED ---------------------We are excited to host a giveaway with @saltldsretreat for their upcoming retreat on October 14, 2017.

SALT is a community of LDS women who lift each other up and help turn each other’s hearts towards God. While The Small Seed is intentionally a non-denominational website (because we believe there is power when we unite as Christians of ALL faiths), for those in our community who are LDS, this is something dear to our hearts, and an event we know SO many women need!
We are giving away two tickets, one for you and one for your friend! To enter make sure you are following @saltldsretreat and @thesmallseed, and then tag a friend who would love to attend with you! Giveaway is for two tickets to the retreat and doesn't include travel or accommodations. Giveaway will close Wednesday at midnight and we will announce the lucky winners on Thursday. Good luck!

“When a Christian shuns fellowship with other Christians, the devil smiles. When he stops studying the Bible, the devil laughs. When he stops praying, the devil shouts for joy.” - Corrie Ten Boom

"The Savior’s mortal ministry was indeed characterized by love, compassion, and empathy. He did not disdainfully walk the dusty roads of Galilee and Judea, flinching at the sight of sinners. He did not dodge them in abject horror. No, He ate with them. He helped and blessed, lifted and edified, and replaced fear and despair with hope and joy. Like the true shepherd He is, He seeks us and finds us to offer relief and hope. Understanding His compassion and love helps us exercise faith in Him—to repent and be healed." Dale G. Renlund

"True disciples of Jesus Christ are willing to stand out, speak up, and be different from the people of the world. They are undaunted, devoted, and courageous." Russell M. Nelson

"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before. Everyone can create. You don’t need money, position, or influence in order to create something of substance or beauty. Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. Remember that you are spirit daughters of the most creative Being in the universe." Dieter F. Uchtdorf

"The Lord works from the inside out. The world works from the outside in. The world would take the people out of the slums. Christ takes the slums out of people, and then they take themselves out of the slums. The world would mold men by changing their environment. Christ changes men, who then change their environment. The world would shape human behavior, but Christ can change human nature." -Ezra Taft Benson
The power of change is real! Through Christ, change is not only possible, it is essential. Take hope friends! There is joy in change. 💛 Kim

“Hope is putting faith to work when doubting would be easier.” -Thomas S. Monson

Can't you feel this quote cheering us on, encouraging us to have the energy and courage to do what matters most? As we start a new week let's hate Monday's less 😉 and embrace with faith the opportunities that every new day brings. xo, Lizzy
