The Power of Prayer Words: Brenton Prigge © 2002 New Hymn CCLI # 4315865
© 2005 Brenton Prigge
O teach us again the power of prayer
How soon we forget, how sad our despair
While God our Creator who made us from dust
Is whisp'ring: "My children,
Oh, why won't you trust!"
Again and again, our God in His pow'r
Has heard all our prayers, supplied all our needs.
He hears us cry out in our times of distress
And in times of plenty
He listens, no less!
He's listening now, come bring Him your prayer
Just like a small child who's longing to share
With her precious Father the news of the day
Bring your hopes, fears, joy, tears:
Oh, come let us pray!
"Lord, teach us to pray..." (Luke 11:1)
This New Hymn is based on Luke 11:1-13. The main theme is clearly defined in the title: The Power of Prayer.
