About the author:

David A. Christensen’s love and enthusiasm for being a missionary was sparked in a missionary preparation class at Ricks College in the late 60s. His love and testimony for the Book of Mormon was ignited in a religion class the following semester. These two classes combined as a new beginning for what would one day become not only a passion but also the centerpiece of his professional contribution in the Church Education System and at Brigham Young University-Idaho. David has taught Missionary Preparation and Book of Mormon classes for over 30 years. His testimony was shared and transferred to missionaries and members in the Chile Santiago North Mission when he served as president and again in Central America when he served as President of the Guatemala MTC. He counts his eight children as his most important converts and his favorite companion—his best friend and wife Deena Bond Christensen.

My Review:Power in Prayer: 31 Teachings to Strengthen Our Connection with Heaven by David Christensen


I needed this reminder about Prayer. It is full of scriptures, quotes and examples in answer to Prayer. I know that while I was reading this book I stopped to pray. I also wrote it in my calendar to remind me.

It reminds you what to pray for. Pray always, pray for others, pray for all your blessings, not to pray by rote but each prayer to be more meaningful. Too remember to listen for answers.

I have had many prayers answered. Some even before I was finished with the prayer. I have also said prayers in weird places, I have also fallen asleep while praying. Forgotten to say prayers.

I have tried to say a prayer just for all the things I am grateful for without asking for help of any kind. So far I need to work on that more.

I don't know of any principle that he has said is new, but it sure reminded me of things I can do to improve my communication with Heavenly Father.

I also want to go buy some length of chains for my key rings.
