Russell M. Nelson on communication with heaven

President Russell M. Nelson (1924- ) was an internationally-renowned heart surgeon when he was called to serve as a member of the Quorum of Twelve Apostles in 1984. He was set apart as president of the Quorum of Twelve on July 15, 2015.
"Today's technology also allows us to use wireless telephones to exchange information rapidly.... Even more amazing than modern technology is our opportunity to access information directly from heaven, without hardware, software, or monthly service fees. It is one of the most marvelous gifts the Lord has offered to mortals. It is His generous invitation to 'ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you' (Matthew 7:7; Luke 11:9; emphasis added).
"This timeless offer to provide personal revelation is extended to all of His children. It almost sounds too good to be true. But it is true!"
- Russell M. Nelson, "Ask, Seek, Knock," Ensign, Nov. 2009, pp. 81-84

Our modern world has amazing enhanced technology to facilitate communication and information retrieval. But President Nelson points out that processes have always existed that are far superior, to communicate and exchange information "direction from heaven." But it requires that we initiate the contact by asking, seeking, knocking.
