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.
Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a Lord of care, precious Saviour still our refuge, take it to the Lord in prayer. Do they friends despise forsake thee, take it to the Lord in prayer, in His arms He will take and shield thee, thou wilt find a solace there!
May you desire to have Jesus as your best friend, may you trust in Him, may you obey Him in this brand new year, 2017 and you will be amazed at how peaceful and content your life will be. May He enable you in the name of Jesus Christ!
