Bathe The World In Prayer

red moon rising

(extract)


I watched once more those thousands crossing the lake by boat, their songs drifting up through the pure mountain air while others filtered down throught the forest on foot to converge in an Alpine meadow in a hazy day in March to pray and pledge themselves to the King of Kings.

Watching these Swiss warriors rising up, I found myself replaying in my mind the vision granted to a long haired, carefree student on the cliffs of Cape St Vincent.

“Thank you”, I whispered to the one who hears my every prayer. Something is stirring from nation to nation, but the crowds in Guildford, Valladolid, Dresden and at the Reutli express a greater meeting still. It's the meeting of solitary figures, kneeling in prayer in the middle of the night, from Tulsa to Tumbi Umbi, conspiring alone with their Commander-in-Chief, their Father in heaven, their Friend.

lyrics


Bathe The World In Prayer

Bathe the world in prayer
(repeated)
Bathe the world
Amen

“Thank you” I whispered…conspiring alone with their commander in chief, their Father in heaven, their friend.

Bathe the world in prayer

Torrents of rivers and valleys and mountains
Wade through the cities, and streets and deserts
Let your current flow, Lord let your current flow

Fountains of grace come to the cities
Waves of your spirit flow through the deserts
Torrents of Your love come over the mountains
Waves of love shattering cities

Torrents of the rivers of life through the valleys
Waves of Your river and hope through the deserts
Fountains of the river of life in the places
Desolate places returned to You, Lord.

We love you Jesus

Dwell at Christmas

Dwell album cover from Prayerscapes

In this season of giving, it is hard sometimes to cut through the commercial trappings, rise above the “perfect Christmas” expectations and truly connect with loved ones to give a gift that is really yearned for. We (like most creatives) sometimes find it hard to “push” our own work, to believe that our music can Read More


A Beautiful Prayer

Beautiful Tree Branches hanging low down

I think one of our deepest longings as humans is to know that there is a purpose for our lives, that we have a role to play in this world. Thankfully as Christians we can be certain that life isn’t just a random series of events. God the creator of the earth and the heavens Read More


An Ancient Celtic Blessing

“May the Road Rise Up To Meet You” is a beautiful old Celtic blessing. Blessings are a gift and ancient ones like these help us to become open channels for the fragrance of Christ to surround those we give out to. I love the references to creation – the sun, the wind, the rain – Read More
