A Friend so Faithful

 

Isaiah 59 vs 1

“Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear.”

Our friendship with God is unlike any other. God is capable of answering our every prayer and longs to hear our every heart’s desire.

I have the old Hymn in my head this morning, reminding me that the friendship I have with God is such a remarkable gift and reminding me of the importance of prayer.

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 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 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.
