about

This Spring 2016 we’ve been exploring prayer at the Gathering. Preaching, praying, and singing our way through the Lord’s Prayer and the classic acronym A.C.T.S. This collection of songs is our attempt to pray twice as Brian Wren describes it - a reminder that song is as much prayer as we typically think of spoken prayer. This EP is our second attempt to bring original materials to the support of our preaching series.

Track Name: Lauren Sweers - You Hear Me
All of my being longs for you
Longs to know You, longs to hear You
My soul pants of thirst for You
All I need Lord, you're all I need

PRECHORUS
I will wait for an olive leaf
A lonely bird looking for a place to land
I will seek because You told me I'd find You

CHORUS
So I'll wait on You
To answer my call
I'll cry to You
You will hear me
Lord, You hear me

VERSE 2
All of Your goodness draws me near
Wanting words, I'm in awe of You
All of my being longs for You
To be with You, to be Yours

BRIDGE
Ohoh I adore You
All You are and all You do
Track Name: Maddie Scott - Call to You
Oh in the morning, when I wake,
Lord my soul and mind is fogged
The earth all around me, closing in,
The harshness and hurt it cuts deep like a knife and I feel the sin.

Pre Chorus
And my mind it wanders far,
And my heart it turns so hard.
And my mind it doesn’t know,
That my heart it needs You so.

Chorus
I will pray and I won’t give up,
Lord you bring me to my knees and fill my heart,
You hear my prayer when the world is loud,
You renew me, and You call me to call to You.

Instrumental

Verse 2
Oh in the daylight, life is bright,
And the twists and turns move fast,
I get distracted and confused,
And it’s hard to remain in You.

Pre Chorus
And my mind it wanders far,
And my heart it turns so hard.
And my mind it doesn’t know,
That my heart it needs You so.

Chorus

I will pray and I won’t give up,
Lord you bring me to my knees and fill my heart,
You hear my prayer when the world is loud,
You renew me, and You call me to call to You.

Bridge
You hear my prayer,
No matter where,
I know You’re there,
You hear me, You know me, You call me your own.

Chorus
I will pray and I won’t give up,
Lord you bring me to my knees and fill my heart,
You hear my prayer when the world is loud,
You renew me, and You call me to call to You.

Verse 3
Oh in the evening, life is calm,
And You bring me to my knees.
Lord you listen to my prayer,
You are good and you are fair.
And my mind it draws to You,
And my heart it rests in you.
And my mind it will adore,
And my heart it says “I’m Yours”.
Track Name: Lane Ellens - Sweet Hour of Prayer
Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
That calls me from a world of care,
And bids me to my Father’s throne
Make all my wants and wishes known.

Pc:
In seasons of distress and grief,
My soul has often found relief,
And oft escaped the tempter’s snare,
By thy return, sweet hour of prayer!

Chorus:
Lord be near me
Lord you hear me
I will approach your throne
Ever faithful
You are able
You and you alone

Vs2:
Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
The joys I feel, the bliss I share,
Of those whose anxious spirits burn
With strong desires for thy return!

Pc2:
With such I hasten to the place
Where God my Savior shows His face,
And gladly take my station there,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

Chorus

Bridge 1
My hope is sure as
I lay my burdens bare
My hope endures
as He’s ever present there

Bridge 2
My hope is sure as
I lay my burdens bare
My hope endures
as He’s ever present there

Chorus x2
Track Name: Christian Roberts - Hear Our Prayer
V1:
Spirit divine, hear our prayer,
make this house Thy home;
come with all Thy gracious power,
come, great Spirit, come!

V2:
Come as light; to us reveal
our emptiness and woe:
lead us in the path of life
Where all the righteous go.

Chorus:
Spirit come, Spirit burn ablaze inside us
set eternal fire upon our hearts
Spirit speak, spirit for us intercede
This our humble prayer in Jesus' name
Spirit come x2

V3:
Come as fire, and purge our hearts
with sacrificial flame;
Let our souls an offering be
To our Redeemer's Name.

CHORUS

Bridge:
We pray Spirit come
fill and deliver us
hear our prayer, hear our prayer
We pray kingdom come
We pray God’s will be done
hear our prayer, hear our prayer
Track Name: Bruce Benedict - Our Heavenly Father
Our heavenly Father! hear our prayer;
Thy name be hallowed every where;
Thy Kingdom come; Thy perfect will,
In earth as heaven, may all fulfill

Give this day's bread, that we may live;
Forgive our sins as we forgive;
Lead us temptation's snares to shun,
And save us from the Evil One:

Chorus 1
Let us pray…thy kingdom come
Let us pray - thy will be done

Now, and for ever, unto Thee,
The kingdom, power, and glory be!
Thus, as our Saviour taught to say,
In truth and spirit, let us pray.

OUTRO
In earth as heaven, may all fulfill…..

..Our Father in Heaven….
your will be done, your kingdom come

O Son our Savior
forgive our sins as we forgive

O Holy Spirit
free us from every temptation
