The Bible Dictionary

The Bible dictionary (in the LDS King James version of the Bible) is full of truth for your study. Turn to the subject heading, “Prayer.” Skim down to the bottom paragraph on page 752 that begins, “As soon as we learn the true relationship…” end your reading at “the highest of blessings.”

Reflect on what you’ve just read about prayer. What are your thoughts? What have you learned? What do you think about prayer being “a form of work?” What do you think the “highest of blessings” means? Review the scriptures located in this section on prayer.

Some other ideas:

Anoint/Anointed one
Ark of the Covenant

There are many wonderful words to study in the Bible dictionary. Look up the word, Communion if you haven’t done so already in your previous studies. When I studied this word I learned that communion in my life “is a two-way conversation with God. To commune, means to talk with someone else.”

"And there I will meet thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat…” (Exodus 25:22) “Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still” (Psalms 4:4). “And it came to pass that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them” (Luke 24:15).
