- What a friend we have in Jesus,All our sins and griefs to bear!What a privilege to carryEverything to God in prayer!Oh, what peace we often forfeit,Oh, what needless pain we bear,All because we do not carryEverything 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.
- Blessed Savior, Thou hast promisedThou wilt all our burdens bear;May we ever, Lord, be bringingAll to Thee in earnest prayer.Soon in glory bright, unclouded,There will be no need for prayer—Rapture, praise, and endless worshipWill be our sweet portion there.
--Joseph M. Scriven
Indeed, it is a wonderful privilege to be able to take everything; big or little; important or simple; to the Lord... knowing that He welcomes us with open arms, and never scorns our smallest petitions.
Praise His holy name; He is the ever loving Father; never weary; never impatient. Ah, how grateful we should be. He is so wonderful; my mind cannot comprehend such love. Thank you, Lord.
May He bless your Sunday, my dear friends!
