My daughter had been working on a science project for several weeks, looking through the telescope, making notes, studying the stars. It came time for her to write up her project for the final grade. We went to the Library (where I was director and had a set of keys…) after hours so she could use the computers and resources and I could assist. The more she worked on it, the more confused she became, until finally she turned to me and said, “I can’t even remember what my hypothesis is anymore!!”
I reminded her of our seminary lesson from that morning. She had a right to blessings through her obedience. She had the Gift of the Holy Ghost to bring all things to her remembrance.
I suggested that she pray about it, so she went off into the stacks and knelt down, while at the same time, I sent up a fervent prayer that she would get an answer–enlightenment and understanding to be able to proceed.
She came back a few minutes later and we sat and looked at each other.
“Now what?” she asked.
“Now we wait,” I said.
A moment later her eyes got wide and she said, “I get it!” and she proceeded in a few minutes to write up her report.
Two prayers answered.
