Friends - Lesson 2

Opening Prayer: Join together in prayer lifting up your needs
 and the needs of those suffering in different parts
of the world. May the Lord do a mighty work in His
 people moving them to action to bring aid, comfort
and peace to those suffering right now in
desperate need.  May our Heavenly Father speak
to our hearts about Jesus - being our very Best
Friend of all.

THE BEST FRIEND TO HAVE IS JESUS
http://www.hymntime.com/tch/htm/b/e/f/befriend.htm
Oh, the best friend to have is Jesus,
When the cares of life upon you roll;
He will heal the wounded heart,
He will strength and grace impart;
Oh, the best friend to have is Jesus.

Refrain
The best friend to have is Jesus,
The best friend to have is Jesus,
He will help you when you fall,
He will hear you when you call;
Oh, the best friend to have is Jesus.

What a friend I have found in Jesus!

Peace and comfort to my soul He brings;
Leaning on His mighty arm,
I will fear no ill nor harm;
Oh, the best friend to have is Jesus.

Refrain

He Didn't Say Good-Bye



Christ didn't say good-bye

But that He would return

Until that time we occupy

Ourselves with truth

We need to learn.


Right now we watch and pray

And in His Word delight

Christ shall return to us one day

In full glory ...

Power and might.



 And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come again, and receive you unto myself;
 that where I am, there ye may be also.
John 14:3
