For school, I had a comprehensive final in Bio-Chemistry. After months of intense studying, the date of the big test was finally here. Throughout the semester, my wife and I had been praying that I’d have a clear mind on the day of the test and that I’d remember the things that I had studied.
My test strategy is to go through the whole test and answer all the questions, and then go through again and double check them as I transfer my answers to the scan-tron. I came to a particular question where I was able to narrow it down to two answers. Initially I had marked “e” being pretty confident with my choice. But when I came upon it for the second time, I had a distinct thought, “No, that’s not correct”. Then I suddenly remember the things I learned when I studied the topic earlier. I changed my answer to “d” and I got the question right.
I thought about my experience throughout the day. I know that God does answer our prayers. We believe to receive answers for our questions, we must do our part. We must study it in our minds and then ask God if it’s right. If it is, we will feel that in our hearts and in our minds that it is right. (see D&C 9:8 & Moroni 10:3-5)
