HYMN – ASK AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN TO YOU

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
