Composer's Foreword

God through the fathers of faith makes us know the importance of prayers and praying to him.

At this new dispensation, Jesus emphasizes th issue of prayers by sharing different stories with the disciples to let them know that prayer is important.

Apostles equally emphasizes the need for believers to always pray approaching the throne of grace in the name of Jesus.

I have composed this song of prayer trusting that believers hearts will be gingered to prayers.

The link of the tune used for composing the song has been shared here.

Thank you.

Composed Song


Oh blessed Jesus my Savior

You 've given believers special key

With which to unlock room of prayer

Yea that key is name of Jesus



Whatsoever things we asked for in your name

Those your Father will surely do

So that the Son 'll be glorified

Even in Yahweh his heav'nly Father



Whatsoever things we asked for in your name

You 've given us your word to do them all

'Cause you are a compassionate Father

Who is ready to meet need of his children



The name of Jesus is higher than all names

In heaven, on earth and beneath the earth

Devil, demons and the principalities

They all tremble when they hear Jesus name



Whatsoever we desire while praying

You said we should believe they 'll be done

Oh dear heavenly Savior

Help thou my unbelief my Lord



All of my trust is reposed in you

You are my everything in the world

Hearken speedily to my prayers

Put me not to shame that I trust on thee

Thanks Pamela. People in my land are shying away from prayer therefore I have composed this trusting that brethren who are getting wearied praying will be motivated to resume prayers again...

The power of prayer is so important, and I like this hymn, Olusegun. This hymn tells us exactly what the Bible says about prayer.
