A Quote by David Oman McKay on blessings, fatherhood, heart, language, prayer, sincerity, soul, spirit, virtue, words, and work

Prayer is the yearning of the spirit. It is the message of the soul sent directly to a loving father. The language is not mere words, but a loving heart in tune with the infinite. Sincere praying implies that when we ask for any blessing or virtue we should work for the blessing and cultivate the virtue.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on birth, blessings, christ, darkness, death, eternity, fear, jesus, life, men, and soul

There is no cause to fear death; it is but an incident in life. It is as natural as birth. Why should we fear it? Some fear it because they think it is the end of life, and life often is the dearest thing we have. Eternal life is man's greatest blessing. If only men would "do his will" instead of looking hopelessly at the dark and gloomy tomb, they would turn their eyes heavenward and know that "Christ is risen!" With all my soul I know that death is conquered by Jesus Christ.
