"Universal Prayer" was a song recorded by Italian singer Tiziano Ferro and British R&B singer Jamelia for the soundtrack to the 2004 Summer Olympic games. The song was then added to the re-issue of Jamelia's Thank You in Europe.

The single was not released in Jamelia's home country, however, the video was shown on UK music television channels around the time of her "See It in a Boy's Eyes" single release.

The song became Jamelia's first number one hit in both Spain and Italy.
