On this date, December 18, 1707, Charles Wesley was born. He was the author of around 9,000 hymns. One of my new favorites that he wrote is titled “A Prayer for Persons Joined in Fellowship.”
Help us to help each other, Lord,
Each other’s cross to bear;
Let each his friendly aid afford,
And feel his brother’s care.
Help us to build each other up,
Our little stock improve;
Increase our faith, confirm our hope,
And perfect us in love.
