Lyrics:
Grandma used to pray out loud
By her bed every night
To me it sounded like mumbling
Like she was out of her mind
She said boy this kind of praying is what saved my life
You oughta try it some time
Now I know she was right

She was talking to Jesus
She was talking to Jesus
She’d been talking to Jesus for all of her life

Mama used to drag me to church
Sunday mornings and Wednesday night
Khaki pants and a polo shirt
Boy I put up a fight
She said, son, one day you’ll thank me for having God in your life
And yeah I know she was right
Yeah my mama was right

Cause now I’m talking to Jesus
She got me talking to Jesus
She got me talking to Jesus
Yeah my mama was right
Cause now I’m talking to Jesus
Yeah I love talking to Jesus
And I’ll be talking to Jesus
For the rest of my life

What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
Oh

I’ve got 3 of my own now
Trying to raise them up right
My oldest is 15 and I remember what that was like
Trying to deal with the drama, trying to figure out the questions in life
I’ve been looking for a way to show him how to make it alright

Then he walked in my room while I was saying my prayers the other night
He said I’ll come back later, I can tell you got a lot on your mind
I said it’s not an interruption, you couldn’t have picked a better time
Cause I was just talking to Jesus, come over and give it a try

We started talking to Jesus
We started talking to Jesus
We started talking to Jesus
Oh
And now he’s talking to Jesus
Thank God he’s talking to Jesus
I hope he’s talking to Jesus
For the rest of his life

There’s no wrong way to do it
There’s no bad time to start
It don’t have to sound pretty
Just tell him what’s on your heart
Cause it’s not a religion
It’s more like a friendship
Just talk to your Father
Like you are his kid

Just start talking to Jesus
Just start talking to Jesus
You can talk to Jesus
Whenever you like

Just start talking to Jesus
Just start talking to Jesus
Just keep talking to Jesus
For the rest of your life

    When I was small I got to sleep with my grandma. I would just be dozing off to sleep and she would start praying. OHHHH LORD JESUS…….I would jerk awake every time. 😂 Then I would drift back off listening to her talk to her savior. I’m very thankful for the life she led. Praise you Lord

    I am not here to propagate. But where are the people who really love Jesus, those who are His witnesses. Depending on the music, feedback or improving the youtuber channel … why do I see this if the center is God, deslike? God doesn't need feedback just that the gospel can reach his children and music is one of them! Make noise, to many people who can be touched by the Holy Spirit through reggae, I was touched myself when looking for the Lion of the tribe of Judah. God bless you
