What a Friend we have in Jesus

What a Friend we have in Jesus,
  All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
  Everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
  O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
  Everything to God in prayer!
Have we trials and temptations?
  Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged,
  Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful
  Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness,
  Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Are we weak and heavy-laden,
  Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge—
  Take it to the Lord in prayer;
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
  Take it to the Lord in prayer;
In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
  Thou wilt find a solace there.

Sometimes these hymns from childhood come to mind at the right time. What a blessing! I need to remember who Jesus is and He is the answer, not the government, politicians, flawed humans. Especially during this fractured time in our beautiful (yet flawed country). We ALL need The Savior!!! He’s our hope ✝️

Period and Amen🙏

Try personalizing this great prayer and see what an amazing reassurance you will experience.

When all fails, there is always a safe ground in Jesus. He is YET to fail, if he ever will.

Praise God

These lyrics are biblical and has so much truth to it.

Nowadays the modern songs and lyrics go out of bible context and some overly repeat one word. Be careful of the songs you listen to, make sure they are not all about self, what they should be is all about our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. 🙏🙏🙏
