Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days
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.
You 'll continue to grow in Him
When you distance yourself
From all appearance of evil
To grow in knowledge of Christ Jesus
Work out your salvation
With fear and trembling
From the dogs and workers of evil
You need to take heed
That you 'll grow in the Lord
Be imitators of Christ Jesus
In everything you do
If you want to grow in the Lord
Know that we can't pray for more grace
If we continue to dwell
In 'niquities and sins
Draw nigh to the Lord in His words
And you 'll continue
To grow in His knowledge
It's the desire of our heav'nly Father
That we grow to be
Like Him on this earth

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