More Than We Can Ask

Based on Ephesians 3:20, this tender prayer song by Richard Bruxvoort Colligan invites space for prayer requests to be spoken aloud or sung by the community.

After the refrain is taught and begins to deepen, you can transition to an instrumental vamp (or drone, if sung unaccompanied) during which a leader can invite petitions. When the group is ready to move on, the leader sing the phrase, 'Hear, oh, hear our prayer' to signal a return to the refrain, or 'Amen' to conclude.  

"More than we can ask,
More than we can ask,
More than we can ask or imagine.

Hear, oh, hear our prayer. Amen."

Sheet music is available for purchase on Richard's website. The song is also published in the songbook Sing Prayer and Praise
