Ellen G. White
If you believe indeed in the Lord Jesus for the salvation of your soul, if you walk uprightly and do not regard iniquity in your heart, if you continue to wait patiently, and believingly upon God; then answers will surely be given to your prayers.
Prayer is a privilege and the soul's sincere desire.

David A. Bednar
