On Grace, Worship And Love

I was blessed to remember this hymn.
What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and grief to bear!
What a privilege to carry, everything to God in prayer.
O what a peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry, everything to God in prayer!
- Joseph Scriven, "What A Friend We Have in Jesus," 1855.

C.f. Jesus' words to his disciples:
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another.
- John 15:16f
