    Thank you Roy for the beautiful rendition of the much loved hymn ‘What a Friend We Have in Jesus’, and for your inspirational post.

    It is a fact that often it is thought that a problem to too great to take to Jesus. But, that is not so. A few years ago when I had a serious undiagnosed illness, I was visited on several occasions by a Pastor from our Church. It was then that he taught me to pray and ask Jesus to take my problem in His Hands and solve it for me. My greatest problem at that time was getting discharged from the hospital. And, it was a problem. The doctor put in front of me all the reasons she couldn’t discharge me. None of them made sense. I persevered with prayer and the doctor could no longer justify her reasoning. I was, and still am, so grateful to know Jesus.

      Hello Valerie,

      Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my blog Valerie, I really do appreciate it. It is great to hear that you are a Christian Valerie, this is such a wonderful thing to hear. I really like the words of this hymn, such simple words and yet so true and powerful.

      I have been privileged to have seen God do great things and I have seen many miracles and healings, I believe that having a simple and genuine faith in God, changes everything!

      It’s great to hear how you were healed, there is so much power in prayer and faith in God, we praise God for your healing and your testimony of his goodness.

      I was in Bible school a few years ago and a fellow student had cancer, he knew that God was going to heal him and he told the surgeons that they would find no cancer in his body, even though the scans very clearly showed cancer! The surgeons did not believe him, so they operated, they opened him up and guess what? No cancer, so they sewed him back up again! This man had genuinely heard from God and believed in this miracle!

      I love your last paragraph, Valerie.

      Have a great day.
