Power verse

While I was on my mission, I had a very powerful spiritual experience that started with a prayer. It’s not really the right place for me to go into detail here, but suffice to say that this experience really helped me to see the power of the priesthood and the gospel in a much purer light. It was such a profound experience for me that I even wondered for a time if it was from God.

Then, I found this verse. I realized that this experience had encouraged me to pray more and more, and the prepare myself more deeply when I prayed. Clearly, it had to have come from God. There was no other source. It was a great feeling to have it resolved.

When this verse came up in the Scripture Mastery list, it made me smile to remember that experience. I thought that it was all about trials and about overcoming them. It’s all about praying through your adversity.

The verse rule makes some players overcome the verse and work to eliminate the block so as to be able to benefit from the prayer effect again. This verse would be really effective against a deck that relies on the prayer mechanic to gather the right cards for a winning combo.
