Just a Little Talk With Jesus

My husband was researching various renditions of this famous gospel song today, because our organist played it (on the piano) recently.  It was written in 1937 by Cleavant Derricks, who pastored a number of black, Baptist churches.  Reverand Derricks composed over 300 hymns and was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 1984.  This one is probably his most well known and has been performed by numerous artists over the years, including Elvis Presley.


By the way, what is a prayer wheel?  Does anyone out there know?
