Prayer does work, but it is always on God's terms.. My mother has been
doing genealogy for nearly 40 years and could never find her great grandmothers
family, she searched for nearly 40 years, prayed oft and just last week she
finally found what she was looking for. Prayer does work.. sometimes it takes
nearly 40 years before you get an answer though.. its the one thing she wanted
before she died and she got her wish.
I agree with Gracie and Mona. Prayer has brought many new names to light in my
family lines recently - sometimes when I was about ready to give up. I love the
new Family Tree on Family Search. I didn't at first, as it was a tad
confusing, but the staff are wonderful to work with and so happy to help that I
persevered and now think it is amazing. The program is in its early stages and
still improving, but wonderful nonetheless.
When I hear others remark that they don't have regular spiritual
experiences, I recommend they work on their family history!Town
Crier, the new Family Tree is 50 times better than the old Ancestral File &
New Family Search. When you say it's awful I haven't the faintest
idea of what you are referring to. I love it! The ability to post sources is
priceless, and photos and stories are a bonus. It's so simple to navigate.
And if there's information that needs to be fixed, then get in and fix it.
It's easy as pie.
A very powerful testimony! These miracles certainly do turn our research efforts
around, don't they? We truly should expect miracles to occur considering
the deeply spiritual nature of the work. They not only bless the lives of our
progenitors but they increase our willingness to keep at it. In the process, our
faith is increased as well.
