ASK AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN TO YOU
Refrain: Ask, and it shall be given to you.
Knock, and doors shall open unto you
Seek, and you will surely find goodness
Thus says the Lord.
- Don’t be afraid to pray to God
God is a very good Father
He’s willing to answer Your pray’r
Only if you pray according to His will.
Those who prayed to God in the past
Received their requested blessings
God is still able to answer
Everyone who prays according to His will.
Nevertheless, God has warned us
That He will not answer some pray’rs
To pray and be answered therefore
We must always pray according to His will.
We must request in Jesus’ name
Only what the Lord has promised
We must also have good motive
As we pray to God according to His will.
God has not licensed anyone
To help fellow men get from Him
What He is not willing to give
Each of us can ask according to His will.
As a good Father that God is
He will not give us stone for bread
He will not take curses for pray’rs
No evil can be according to His will.
God don’t treat all men the same way
Though He can give sinners pardon
Only His children He will give
Whatever they ask according to His will.
Z. A. Ogunsanya, 30/3/2018. The chorus came while I was leading prayer in the church. I later wrote the body between 3:50 am. and 4:50 am., on 12/4/2018, while preparing a sermon on How to make your prayer answerable.
