Teach How To Pray
Be courageous and ask people directly, “How are you praying, and what are you saying in your prayers?”
Cheerfully walk them through a prayer. Invite them to pray out loud, to express gratitude to God and to discuss with Him decisions they are considering. Encourage them to follow Amulek’s counsel and pray about everything that is important to them (see Alma 34:17-27).
Consider praying out loud yourself to demonstrate, and ask others who are comfortable praying to follow your demonstration with their own.
Explain that God answers through the Holy Ghost, who communicates not through sound waves directed into our ears, but with our spirits through our thoughts and feelings. To hear, we listen inside ourselves.
