Pray to fellowship with Jesus

The original title and words to this hymn were written by Joseph M. Scriven (1819-1886) in 1855. Scriven wrote this hymn to comfort his mother, who was across the sea from him in Ireland. It was originally published anonymously, and he did not receive full credit for almost 30 years. The title is commonly known as “What a Friend We Have in Jesus. ”

The music “Erie”, was composed by Charles C. Converse (1834-1919) in 1868. In WWI, the words were paired up with the tune to “ When This Bloody War is Over. ”

Wherever we go, whatever we do, we need to constantly abide in Him, not seeking a good life nor prosperity nor an outward guidance, but only Him alone. "Lord, I just want nothing else but to see Your beauty. I love You."

"I want nothing for myself, I want everything for the Lord!"

- Watchman Nee/M. E. Barber

A person who seeks nothing for himself but everything for the Lord is one who remained in His presence wholeheartedly, unreservedly. This will radiate His excellence.

Pray to fellowship with Jesus,

Bathing in His countenance;

Saturated with His beauty,

Radiate His excellence.

Waiting in the secret place

Pray to fellowship with Jesus bathing in His countenance. Thank You Lord for being the real and living Spirit in our spirit. Hebrew 9:4, we can prayer ourselves into the Holy of Holies.
