    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
    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
    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

    2. cri rum

      My mama talked with Jesus and now i'm talking to Jesus. Thank you so much ma

    3. Nyasha Fiona

      Wow,this reminds me of my Mom. She would wake up and pray. She would praise and worship even in the middle of storms. She taught me about Jesus and praying. What a strong woman she was!!! Thank you Jesus.

    4. Prophetic Scripture

      Powerful song !!! Hallelujah ❤️🙏👑

    6. Marcia J Brown

      When I was a child growing up I heard my grandparents talking to Jesus. Now I’m talking to Jesus, what a friend we have in Jesus


      The chorus of this song gets me in a special way.

    8. Grey 0

      Everyone in the audience is wiggling like snakes as if they were in a trance-like state. This music is not of Christ, it is of the devil.

    9. Saron Teferi

      I wondered how it could feel to get down on my knees and start talking to him but Satan makes it hard for me that i am just my my own and dealing my own problems but i now realized that i have got salvation for this reason. Talking to him is like making your burden lighter not only that he is always the answer for the unanswered questions in our life, dealing to the dramas of our life is the hardest thing for teens realizing that i've got a father that makes it lighter and it just makes u smile without exterior need of happiness. what a friend a father a savior and what a life is Jesus

    10. Rachael phiri

      What a friend we have in Jesus♥️

    11. string cheese

      Mum fist started taking me to chur when i was four, gave my life at ten, felt the holy spirit at eleven And started talking to Jesus at about 12-13. He got me through depression self harm sucidal thoughts and attempt and now anxiety. Oh and my GCSE'S. I'm fifteen now and Jesus has become my therapist my best friend my father my protector my teacher and everything in between. His grandma is right this kinda prayer saved my life. All glory to god. He is good all the time.

    25. Andrew Mauoane

      What a song "talking to Jesus" ! Lyrical content is so rich what a glorious way to testify about Jesus and inspire the church to pray! Thank you so much Lord for this song! First time I listened to it I fell in love with it. Thank God for the women and the men of God who taught us how to pray. Jer33:3 says call unto me and I will answer you...

    26. Blender Animation Tutorial

      i think alot, i analyze alot, i would have left Christianity, what does it even mean, the word Trinity, but God has given me prove of is existence enough that, it clear to me he lives, Believe too, and ask for personally encounter.

      I wasn’t raised in a Christian household so never had the experience of watching my parents pray to Jesus.. But I can’t wait till I have my own children so I can show them how their mother talks to Jesus ❤️

    32. George Alexander

      Talking to Jesus sweetest name I know

    33. opeyemi muibi

      Deuteronomy 6:6-9 New International Version 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. Good parenting matters alot..let's save our society..what a friend we have in Jesus..

    34. Gretchen Daubier

      Touched at heart. What a song... I'm a french woman in her thirties and feel completely "freak" in my own country. I could leave France well, why not, but I just needed a home of my own and now I found it.

    35. Gretchen Daubier

      Jesus est la clé de ma vie, l'unique et la seule. Je ne pourrai plus jamais revenir en arrière.

      This is what I was happened to me. I was talking to Jesus about alot of pain and anger I had for a lot of years. While I was praying, talking to Jesus I was filled with the holy spirit and talked, sounds like a foreign Language. I have been given the gift of holy ghost spoke in tongues. I love this song. My favorite Christian song. Thanks for my blessing Jesus.

    73. Shirley Tempel

      just talking is not enough ... what do you think of listening?!

      1. Shirley Tempel

        @God First that is exact what i mean! just talking is nice ... but in a relationship it is not just talking, (almost) more important is listening 😉

      2. God First

        i am not sure what you mean by this but talking and listening are both great things to do to maintain your relationship with god "it's not a religion it's more like a friendship"

    74. Barbara Perez

      Just got this beautiful song from my 40 year old son who is raising teen girls with his wife. They know Jesus and this is a true song. Parents, teach your children about Jesus. It is the best you can give them.

    100. Jenn

      This is absolutely true! While raising my kids, sometimes all I could do was pray. I prayed and prayed and God was my co parent. My adult son just called me and told me to listen to this song and he thanked me. I'm convinced that he's alive today because of prayer. The most important thing we can do for our children is pray for them
