Hola William
Ojalá is an invariable word that comes from the Arabic and is usually translated into "I wish..." or as "God willing", as it expresses hope and wish. It is not a verb so it doesn't conjugate. Ojalá is always followed by the subjunctive.
I hope it clarified your doubt.

Here is a specific lesson on Ojalá so you can see more examples (bear in mind this lesson is only dealing with the present subjunctive not the imperfect subjunctive though)
