By Request, ‘Down to the River to Pray’

Requested by our friend SlimJim, a good old-fashioned hymn–Down to the River to Pray, sung by Alison Krauss.

It makes me wonder if my church was missing something, not doing full-immersion baptisms.

  1. I think this was the reason John was called John the Immerser. In all the examples we read of in Scripture, this was the way it was done.

  2. I’ve never been at a river baptismal service. Sure would have liked to have been at John the Baptist’s services, especially when Jesus came to fulfill all righteousness.
