Picture of Jesus standing, with open arms.

The Shortest Prayer

Jesus, I whispered
as I knelt down to pray.
I called out the name of Jesus
and nothing else did I need to say.

As I called the sweet name of Jesus
it drew Him very near.
Cause there's power in His name
that will cast out all fear.

Jesus, I whispered
during the darkness of the night
A ray of hope stirred within
as I hung on with all my might.

When I called the name of Jesus
my prayer ascended to the throne.
Cause the precious name of Jesus
can calm any storm.

Jesus I whispered
when I couldn't see my way.
Calling His name became a prayer
and He lifted me that day.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
It is the name above all names.
It's the shortest prayer one can pray
but He will answer just the same.
