Ruach Breath of Life Ministries

Blow, ruach breath of God, on, in and through us




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.

Short Thoughts

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 . . .
(AA Milne, The House at Pooh Corner)

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

God’s armour for His people

God’s armour for His people

In a very familiar passage, Paul concludes his magnificent epistle to the Ephesians with a briefing on spiritual warfare: he does not want any believer to fall prey to the powerful spiritual beings who oppose the work of the Kingdom of God. To that end, he calls us to...

I will seek Your face, O Lord (Repose for the soul)

I will seek Your face, O Lord (Repose for the soul)

With all the needs and situations pressing in on us from all around the world, quite apart from those bulging out from within our own circles, it is good to take time off from the spiritual fray so that we might refresh our souls. Jesus reminds us that ‘the Kingdom of...

The Power of Collective Apologies and Continual Repentance

"Never apologize, Mister, it’s a sign of weakness!” declared John Wayne, whilst playing the role of Captain Nathan Brittles in the western ‘She wore a Yellow Ribbon.’ Given that this is a post extolling the virtue of constant inner repentance, and the value of...

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!


short thoughts

“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.”

Colossians 3:16

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.


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)
