I love this example of how to seek answers from the Lord for the questions we may have. Desire (Ask). Believe. Ponder. The answers may come to us in different ways, but the process for seeking stays pretty close to this pattern.
1 Nephi 11
“1 For it came to pass after I had desired to know the things that my father had seen, and believing that the Lord was able to make them known unto me, as I sat pondering in mine heart I was caught away in the Spirit of the Lord, yea, into an exceedingly high mountain, which I never had before seen, and upon which I never had before set my foot.”
