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 . . .

We will gradually be adding many longer books and articles onto this website, as we transfer them from our existing site. We would love to encourage you to try searching for any theme, topic or nation you are interested in and see what you can find.

“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!
