Limits to the human imagination

In the Canadian Anglican Eucharist, the following doxology is said in a prayer after communion (apge 214 of the BAS):

Celebrant: Glory to God,
All: whose power, working in us,
can do infinitely more
than we can ask or imagine.
Glory to God from generation to generation,
in the Church and in Christ Jesus,
for ever and ever. Amen.

The description of God as being capable of doing infinitely more than I could imagine has always stayed with me.  Because I can imagine a whole lot.  And then we throw in ‘infinitely’ more… and this seems like a “divide by 0” calculator problem.

Do you imagine there are identifiable limits to the human imagination? If we are creatures limited by biology in this, and could there be a nature to the universe that exists without those limits, that could be aware of us, without us being able to properly conceive of it?
