CPR More than just your normal life saving.

As we all know CPR is a way to help save some ones physical life.
 Those who receive are grateful for that kind soul to help them to live. Many people have been saved and are still living today, because of it. Likewise we can use CPR to save our lives spiritually. now its not going to be by pressing on someones chest to get air to return and the blood to start pumping. However as we apply Three simple steps into our lives we can turn our dying spiritual bodies into a healthy active one.
As we go to church we are able to have the opportunity to revitalize ourselves. It recharges our spiritual batteries. so that we might be able to go on with the rest of the week. Not only does it help us in our lives, it is a commandment from god.
 "Nevertheless the children of God were commanded that they should gather themselves together oft, and join in fasting and mighty prayer in behalf of the welfare of the souls of those who knew not God." (Alma 6:6)
God wants us to be able to partake of the sacraments that we might renue our covenants that we have made with him. As we do so, god is able to uphold is promise, "that they may always have his spirit to be with them..." ( Moroni 4:3)
Another one of Gods commandment that he gives us it to pray unto him unceasingly.
"And Jesus said unto them: Pray on; nevertheless they did not cease to pray." (3 Nephi 19:26)
As we pray I know that God hears and answers our prayers. Even the answer of, NO is an answer. He want to hear from us and to know that we are doing. He knows our thoughts and desires we just have to communicate them with him.
Read your scriptures. As we read our scriptures we are able to find the answers to our prayers. God speaks to us through those that he has already sent. As we read we come closer to our Savior. We truly find just how loving and patient Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ really are. We grow to serve our Savior more. We find out just how.

I know that as I have been doing these things in my life, I have grown closer to my Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. I know that christ lives today. I know that the scriptures are true. As we abide by the teachings therein we can become closer to God than by any other means. I know that my savior loves me and is always watching over me.
