Russell M. Nelson was called as the new president of the Quorum of the twelve apostles today. This came following the passing of President Boyd. K. Packer. I really love Elder Nelson and had the opportunity to speak with him at a Stake Conference one time. I felt of his goodness when I shook his hand and recognized the authority with which he spoke when he shared his thoughts. I remember being impressed that he spoke for the better part of an hour without any notes. From the vantage point I had sitting behind him on the stand, I could see that he was orating straight from his heart and by inspiration. Today in BOM365, a talk of his called, "Sweet Power of Prayer" was referenced and I really loved one of the stories he shared in that talk about an experience he had with prayer once.
Elder Nelson is also Dr. Nelson.
(He was a well respected heart surgeon before he gave up his career to be an apostle.)
Many of us have had experiences with the sweet power of prayer. One of mine was shared with a stake patriarch from southern Utah. I first met him in my medical office more than 40 years ago, during the early pioneering days of surgery of the heart. This saintly soul suffered much because of a failing heart. He pleaded for help, thinking that his condition resulted from a damaged but repairable valve in his heart.
