(I’ve posted another hymn because I think we need it–I Love to Tell the Story, sung by Alan Jackson.)
As we try to get Peep to eat, to build her strength, we are praying hard and I know that some of you are praying for us, too. Heal our little girls, Lord, and it’ll heal our spirits. (Meanwhile, Robbie is doing very well: answered prayers. Thank you, Lord. And we thank our friends and fellow servants with you.)
St. James wrote, “The effectual prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16). I don’t know if I make the grade for righteous: that judgment is God’s. But I have to pray as if I were righteous. If we have faith in Jesus Christ, His righteousness is imputed to us.
But look at our country, lately. Look at this world. Do you like what you see? War, corruption, selling out to China, violent crime boiling over in our cities, “education” devoted to fomenting racial hatred and pushing “transgender” on our children–but who has space to list it all?
We need to be praying, we need to be repenting, we need to be pleading for God’s mercy, as Daniel prayed. Our nation’s sins, our whole world’s sins, have found us out, big-time. We cannot survive without God’s grace.
There’s such an awful lot to pray for! And to pray against.
Turn to God, and He will turn to us. Amen.
Where is everybody this morning? No hymn requests–I’m on my own, I guess.
Here’s a Sunday school favorite, sung by Alan Jackson–I Love to Tell the Story. I used to play it on my harmonica.
I’d love to get a hymn request from whoever it is who’s viewing from Mauritius.
No hymn requests have come in this morning, so I’ll go with an old Sunday school favorite–I Love to Tell the Story, sung by Alan Jackson. Is that a tear in his eye… or is it in mine?
We had this hymn from Alan Jackson a few days ago; let’s hear it now from Tennessee Ernie Ford. An old Sunday school favorite–I Love to Tell the Story.
If you’re new here, let me tell you: we love to post hymns requested by readers. Any and all readers! It’s one of the reasons why we come together here.
An old Sunday school favorite, I Love to Tell the Story, sung by Alan Jackson–and is that a tear in his eye? I think it is.
This was a Sunday school favorite–I Love to Tell the Story. And watch Alan Jackson closely. Are those tears on his cheeks? I think they are.
I was so impressed by the way they sang Blessed Assurance, I looked for more hymns by the Harpeth Gospel Quartet and found this–I Love to Tell the Story, an old Sunday school favorite. Kate Hankey wrote it in 1866. Background sets by the hand of God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.
Well, I managed to fail in my first attempt to provide a hymn for Tuesday morning–which, if I don’t fail again, will be this morning, while you’re reading this… Oh, bother.
Here’s Alan Jackson with I Love to Tell the Story.
This is another of my favorite hymns from way back, in Sunday school: I Love to Tell the Story. Alan Jackson has a nice, mellow way of singing it.
Another Sunday school favorite, I Love to Tell the Story. I can still see Mrs. Raleigh seated at the piano (she was also the superintendent), still hear her playing this, and us kids singing it, soon to go on to the secondary Sunday school department (no more sandbox!)…
I like the way Alan Jackson sings it, rich and mellow, making it ring true.
