“Special Witness,” Friend, Mar. 2007, 21
President Boyd K. Packer, Acting President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, shares some of his thoughts on this subject.
The voice of the Spirit is a still, small voice—a voice that is felt rather than heard. It is a spiritual voice that comes into the mind as a thought put into your heart.
Prayer is so essential a part of revelation that without it the veil may remain closed to you. Learn to pray. Pray often. Pray in your mind, in your heart.
This voice of the Spirit speaks gently, prompting you what to do or what to say, or it may caution or warn you.
Inspiration comes more easily in peaceful settings.
This guidance comes as thoughts, as feelings, through impressions and promptings.
If we follow the promptings of the Spirit, we will be safe, whatever the future holds. We will be shown what to do.
