I love prayer. I love it because it instantly puts me in touch with Heavenly Father. I can ask or say whatever I like or need to in my prayers and I can say them whenever, as well.
Yesterday, my day at work was "forecast" for a bad day. I was assigned to be a cashier for the seven hours of my shift. This rarely happens and it's always a bad day when it does. As I was walking down the stairs of work to begin my shift, I said a quick prayer. I asked Heavenly Father to help my day go by quickly and if He could help me have a good attitude. I wanted to smile that day. That was it.
When I entered the service desk area, my supervisor said, "Congratulations!" I thought, "What for? Because I'm a cashier today?" She continued, "You're Employee of the Month!" I'm sure my face changed right then. I was beaming! To make it better, almost every employee that day congratulated me when they saw me. Many of them told me why they think I deserve it too.
It made a huge difference! My day went by quickly and I felt appreciated. On my way home, I said another prayer. It was full of thankfuls and my happiness for having a Heavenly Father that answers little prayers and sometimes immediately.
