Prayer Song: Sanctus Real


Sanctus Real

Sanctus Real is an American Christian rock band formed in Toledo, Ohio, in 1996. The band is best known for their number one singles "Beautiful Day" (a U2 cover), "Everything About You", "The Fight Song", "I'm Not Alright", "Don't Give Up", "We Need Each Other", "Forgiven" and "Lead Me". For more information on the band, see http://en.wikipedia.org

 I just love the opening line to Prayer Song by Sanctus Real: "I bow my head to pray, I don't know what to say."

Chords to Prayer Song


INTRO - D  A  E  F# (2ce the speed of the verse)

               D                                A
I bow my head to pray, I don't know what to say
       E                                F#
I'm not sure how to fix the things I'm dealing with
                D                               A
I'm in a desperate place, I need to share the weight
     E                  F#
But I just don't know how, to let it all pour out
                  D                     A
Though I'm silent, my heart is crying
                E                       F#
Cause I was made to come to You
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/s/sanctus-real/359627.html ]
           D
So I pray
 E                      F#               D
God I need You more than words can say
E                       F#
Right here in this moment
D                          E
You know my heart, You know my need
F#
You know every part of me
Bm                      D
So even if it's just to speak Your name
                D  A  E  F#
I'm gonna pray

                D                               A
I failed to find the time, but You've been calling out
       E                                F#
I let the days go by as if I could live without

        D                               A
But it's gotta be here now, I won't be pulled away

     E                                                  F#
Cause it's just You and I, so let the world around us fade


           D
So I pray
 E                      F#               D
God I need You more than words can say
E                       F#
Right here in this moment
D                          E
You know my heart, You know my need
F#
You know every part of me
Bm                      D
So even if it's just to speak Your name
                D  A  E  F#
I'm gonna pray


D
(Father)
E               F
I’m in a desperate place
D
(Father)
E               F
I know you can bear the weight
D
(Father)
E                       F
Take me in your arms
As I Speak your name
(Chorus to fade out)

Clip from Bio

Staying close to God is also a theme that runs through “Pray,” a relevant reminder to make time for prayer because it’s the heartbeat of our faith. “I think everyone struggles with how to pray, even when Jesus taught us how to pray—and it’s really simple,” Matt says. “The song talks about how we struggle to make the time and how important it is to pray in general. Our hope is that it really encourages people to stop and cry out to the Lord with what’s going on in our lives.”
