While recently studying the teachings of President Ezra Taft Benson, the 13th President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I came across this statement from one of his associates:
“I have knelt with him and heard him pray. His prayers were always interesting. Almost without exception, they consisted, for the most part, of expressions of thanks. He asked for very little. He expressed gratitude for very much” (Gordon B. Hinckley, “Farewell to a Prophet,” Ensign, July 1994, 40).
