19 Listen to this story about John A. Widtsoe, who grew up to become a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.
20 John s father died when he was young, and John s mother worked hard to support her children. John wanted to get a job to help her. It was not easy to find a job he could do after school, but he finally found one. One day the man he worked for told him he had done a good job for several weeks and paid him with a five-dollar gold piece.
21 John said: Five dollars! That was money! I was jubilant! I would give half of it to my mother; I would buy a new book, and save the remainder. Into the pocket of my trousers went the bright new gold piece, and off I ran to tell my mother of my good luck.
22 On the way home, I put my hand in the pocket to feel... the money. It was not there! I felt all through the pocket again. The gold piece was not there! Instead, I found a hole in the pocket through which the coin had slipped. It was terrible! I was so sorry that I sat down by the ditch bank and cried.
23 John walked back along his path, looking for the gold piece. The sidewalk he had been walking on was made of planks (boards), and he searched the cracks between every plank. But he could not find the money. He finally decided the money was lost for good.
24 Everybody stand up!!!
25 Pretend you are John and look around this room for the lost coin. See if you can be the first to find it.
26 If you were John, what would you do next?
27 John said: Then I remembered that the Lord knew where that gold piece was, and that if he would help me, and wanted me to find it, it could not be lost for long. So I got down on my knees [in] back of a big tree, and told the Lord all about my trouble, and asked him, if he thought it was the best thing for me, to help me find [the gold piece]. When I got up I felt so much better. I felt sure the Lord had heard my prayer.
28 [It was getting dark]. One could not see anything on the ground very clearly, especially a small piece of gold. But I walked right on, not so slowly this time, for I knew the Lord was helping. About half way up the second block, there in the grass lay my lost five dollar gold piece.... I almost shouted with joy. How glad my mother would be, and how I would enjoy that book I had planned to buy. I leaned up against the fence and said, Thank you, O Lord, for finding my money for me.
29 Since that time I have known that the Lord hears prayers. And, since that day, I have been careful to have no holes in my pockets (from John A. Widtsoe, The Lost Gold Piece, Children s Friend, Sept. 1947, p. 369).
30 How many times did John pray about his coin?
31 What did John pray for the first time?
32 What did John pray for the first time? To ask Heavenly Father to help him find his money.
33 What was the answer to John s prayer?
34 Why did John pray the second time?
35 Why did John pray the second time? To thank Heavenly Father for helping him.
36 How has Heavenly Father helped you when you have prayed?
37 Just like our earthly parents, Heavenly Father loves us and wants to help us.
38 Just like our earthly parents, Heavenly Father loves us and wants to help us. When we ask for help, Heavenly Father will hear us.
39 Just like our earthly parents, Heavenly Father loves us and wants to help us. When we ask for help, Heavenly Father will hear us. Let me tell you about a time when Heavenly Father helped my by answering my prayer...
40 This next story is from the bible. It is from Luke 1: 5-17 It s about the Naming of John the Baptist

42 Heavenly Father had heard all of Zacharias and Elisabeth s prayers. Until now, though, it was not time for their child to be born. The angel told Zacharias that the baby, John, would grow up to be a great prophet, John the Baptist. John was born at this time so that he could prepare many people to believe in Jesus Christ and follow him.
43 Sometimes, like Elisabeth and Zacharias, we pray for something that will be good for us later but not yet. Heavenly Father hears all our prayers and answers them in the ways and times that are best for us.
44 When John Widtsoe prayed about his lost gold coin, he remembered that Heavenly Father knew where the coin was and would help him find it if he thought it was the best thing for me. John found the coin right away because it was best for him to find it.
45 Sometimes we might ask our parents for something they know is not good for us, and they have to say no. Similarly, we might pray for something that Heavenly Father knows would not be right for us, and he has to say no.
46 Let s listen to the following story about Michael.
47 While Michael was indoors with a bad cough, it snowed the first big snowfall of the winter. Michael begged his mother to let him play outside in the snow, but she said no. She was afraid his cough would get worse.
48 Michael really wanted to play in the snow, so he prayed that Heavenly Father would make his mother change her mind. When his friend Alex came and asked if he could play in the snow, Michael said that he had to eat lunch, but that he would be able to play after lunch because he had prayed that his mother would let him play in the snow.
49 After lunch Michael again asked his mother if he could play outside. He told her he had prayed that she would let him go outside. Michael s mother looked unhappy. She asked Michael if he thought Heavenly Father would want him to go out and play in the snow today when it might make him more sick.
50 Do you think Heavenly Father heard Michael s prayer?
51 How did Heavenly Father answer the prayer?
52 When Alex came back, Michael said he couldn t go outside. Alex said that Heavenly Father didn t answer Michael s prayer. Michael explained that Heavenly Father did answer his prayer, but the answer was no.
53 Let s review How did Heavenly Father answer John Widtsoe s prayer?
54 Let s review How did Heavenly Father answer Elisabeth and Zacharias s prayers?
55 Let s review How did Heavenly Father answer Michael s prayer?
56 TESTIMONY I want to bear my testimony to you that Heavenly Father knows what is best for each of us, and he always answers our prayers in the best way. Sometimes he says yes, sometimes no, and sometimes he asks us to wait awhile before we receive what we prayed for. I want to encourage you to pray daily and often for it is thru your conversation in prayer with Heavenly Father that you will become a better person.
