"In Everything...

Present your requests to God." Philippians 4:6

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 becasue 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?
We should never be discouraged;
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.

Text: Joseph M. Scriven
Music: Charles C. Converse


Prayers go up, Blessings come down.


Have a wonderful Sunday!
