Greetings! “Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 4:6-7 God invites us to pray about everything and promises us peace in our hearts through Christ Jesus. The hymn by, Joseph Scriven, What a friend we have in Jesus (#746), remind us to pray to Jesus about everything. You can read the words below or listen to them here: https://youtu.be/LarFhGeE-ac
What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear; What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer. Oh what peace we often forfeit, oh 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.
Grace and peace, Rev. Sarina
