Philip Bliss was a gifted young musician who died tragically in train disaster at the age of thirty five. Philip worked for a publishing company, writing sacred and secular songs. He was a rising star in the American gospel music scene. As time allowed, he also volunteered as soloist and song leader in evangelist meetings. One day he was assisting preacher, Rev. Brunage. During the sermon the evangelist quoted Acts 26:28. Philip was struck by those words and penned the hymn “Almost Persuaded” in 1871, a year before his death. Philip sang the hymn at evangelistic rally in
Waukegan. When he sang hymn an unusual power swept over the crowd.

Dear Jesus, every day is a gift from the Lord. We are blessed with Your Holy words in the Bible that persuade us to serve You. Your teachings are true and good. We desire to join You in Your ministry to others. Amen.
