How Sweet the Sound: What a Friend We Have in Jesus
We are continuing our series, “How Sweet the Sound” by focusing on the famous hymn, “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.”
The very first verse of this song says, “What a friend we have in Jesus all our sins and grieves to bear. What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!”
- How do you feel about prayer?
- Do you find it to be difficult?
- Do you sometimes find it a chore?
- Perhaps you feel inadequate or ineffective when you pray.
Many people have very real misconceptions about what prayer is and what prayer accomplishes. But, prayer is an important topic. Consider this, the Bible says we can experience God’s peace, a peace that exceeds anything that we can understand, as a result of prayer.
So, join us as we look at the backstory behind the hymn, “What a Friend We Have in Jesus” and together, dig into the topic of prayer.
