The Hebrew word ‘mashal’ means ‘to speak’, as in a prophetic utterance.
It is also used of short articles that impart specific truths.
In our blog we combine devotional meditations, teaching articles
and intercessory prayer pointers often with anointed music.
We hope these will inspire you as you read, worship and pray.
Halfway between Pooh’s house and Piglet’s house was a Thoughtful Spot
where they met sometimes when they had decided to go and see each other . . .

May these short reflections be a blessing
as you too spend time in a Thoughtful Place with the Lord.

Putin has launched more than just an invasion of its neighbour: it amounts to nothing less than a hybrid world war
It really seems as though there are no limits to which Vladimir Putin is not prepared to go in seeking to establish the supremacy of Russia over the West. Major efforts are being spent seeking to expand the war beyond Ukraine by making weapons of both food and energy...
Welcome to this new mini series, which you will hopefully find both comforting and challenging. The whole series is set to some really lovely music. The first piece features an improvised version of the well-known hymn Immortal, Invisible, God only wise, and the...
I’m having a go at writing ‘prayer-poem-psalms’ – why don’t you have a go at writing one too?’ After all, as you will have realised, many of the psalms begin with a lament, look back with longing and nostalgia and then turn on a pivot as they catch their breath, so to...
As we gradually add more material onto this already extensive website, we would love to encourage you to make good use of the SEARCH button, and try looking for any theme, topic or nation you may be interested in to see if we have already featured it. Do explore the longer items and lovely musical prayer poems we have posted under the READ, LISTEN and WATCH buttons at the very top.
There are plenty of much shorter items and articles too to ponder. May these short reflections for example bless you as you spend time in ‘Thoughtful’ Places with the Lord!
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”
For thousands of years, God’s people have been weaving music, meditation and prayer together in a fragrant offering to Him. We have had the privilege of working with some remarkable song writers, composers and minstrels who have played beautifully rich music and anointed worship, that inspires faith, aids the release of healing and powerfully undergirds intercession. May you receive a deep touch from the Lord as you enter in to these extensive libraries and collections.
On the right you will find links to Sound Cloud tracks, and below a number of Playlists that feature themes, songs and items by individual composers.
Jesus, let Your presence draw near as we listen!
We will be adding many things to this website as it develops and these drop-down boxes will provide easy navigation to access them. We are at the very beginning of this process but are excited as to what we will be going to share with you.
ARTICLES TO READ
The Hebrew word ‘mashal’ means ‘to speak’, as in a short prophetic utterance. It is used of parables and teachings that focus on particular issues and that impart specific truths. It seemed a good word to run with – especially because I was looking for something beginning with M to go with the town we live in: Malvern!
We send out regular ezines that combine devotional meditations, teaching articles and intercessory prayer themes and insights with powerful music that we have recorded with outstanding musician friends.
We will soon be adding many more articles and links to the website – watch this space!
Listen to beautiful music – sometimes set to thoughtful prayers and meditations – that will inspire prayer and draw you into the presence of God.
Open our eyes, Lord, we want to see
I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my understanding; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my understanding. (1 Cor. 14:15)
