Prayer Connects

Prayer connects, invisible yet tangible, human to holy, earth to heaven, child to father. Prayer changes, creating new pathways and spaces. Prayer. Prayer covers, keeps and holds, prayer brings safety and sanctuary. Prayer persists, anew, fresh to each moment, entwining daily life with the mercy of heaven.

Prayer stretches higher, standing on tiptoe, off-balance, daring and bold. Prayer illuminates, throwing light into dark places, reviving hearts with warmth. Prayer journeys, faithfully through the unknown to settle upon truth and declare hope. Prayer, sees, beyond the physical constraints of time and space, pulling the inheritance of the past together with the hope of the future. Prayer joins, redeems and unites, our whole being, emotional, spiritual and physical. Serenity is found here.

Prayer transforms, pushing out the crushing insecurities, the fallen fears and the bitter cries. Prayer throws lifelines of forgiveness and grace far and wide, prayer unlocks doors, pushes down walls and opens eyes. Prayer places it's feet firmly upon resurrection hope, walks in peace, runs with conviction and takes flight. Prayer like a heartbeat, alive, forming a rhythm in our lives, changing the way we move, the decisions we make and the impact of our faith.

Prayer is a home, a safe place to relax and rest, a place of provision and a place of submission. Prayer lays a blanket of grace, soft and new each day, fresh beneath our feet and without condition.

Prayer is a gift, guided by love, carried by hope and expectant with faith.

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
