Haldor Lillenus was born in Norway and as a child he immigrated to the United States. He had a musical bent and he took musical studies by correspondence. He entered the ministry of the Church of the Nazarene. He preached, wrote hymns and published songbooks. The hymn, “Wonderful Grace of Jesus” is the best known of his 4,000 hymns. He had sold this hymn for $5.00 which was the cost of the little wheezy organ on which he composed the hymn in 1918. Later, he organized his own publishing house, Littenus Publishing Company. The publishing house was very successful.

Prayer for this week: Dear Lord, when we walk down the path of misfortune, we know that our faith will bring us the Your grace. Your grace brings sunlight to our mind and soul. Thank you Lord for letting each of us become cheerful in Your love. Praise the Lord. Amen
