A Song - Prayer for the Saints

Author:

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

a-song-prayer-for-the-saints

Composer's Foreword

All apostles when on earth do pray for the churches, especially those ones they have established.

Some have their works well documented while some's works weren't well documented.

Out of those whose works were well documented was Apostle Paul.

We could read from almost all his letters to the saints in the cities where his letters were addressed to that he was praying for them. Most of his prayers essentially was related to spiritual growth of the believers.

It is from one of those utmost desire for the believers that I have coined out these words of songs, to tell all that as he was praying with the brethren then, leaderships of Christian faith are equally praying for the churches they are overseeing today.

Peradventure if any of them isn't praying this again is to ginger them to buckle up and pray for the saints as the sage of old did.

Thank you.

This is another very good praise song, Olusegun. I also like your shirt and red bowtie.
