This is more than just a collection of worship songs: it is a journey towards the heart of God. Rarely will you hear such intimate and passionate songs sung with such feeling and reverence. It really is a moving experience and the listener is made to feel like a welcome visitor to a private worship session, where they can join the improvisations and share the moments of intimacy with our Heavenly Father. Ray's voice is reminiscent of the great Keith Green and conveys his passion and adoration incredibly well. And he's not afraid to be recorded singing in tongues and improvising. The musical arrangements are simple and effective, with acoustic piano and guitar, with some added synth pads and the occasional flute solo and female backing vocals. Every note that is played, every word that is sung seems to carry the presence of God, drawing the listener deeper, closer. Ray provides a refreshing example of how wonderfully pure and simple worship can be.

You have such a soft voice it is soothing to my soul. I feel the passion especially when you praise God in between the song.

we came across this web only by the Holy Spirit. (new at the computer) We have been so blessed with this music. its been on our hearts now for the past 2 years that our Father wants so much for us to spend the time with Him as sons and daughters. When God creatated Adam He knew he needed a bride for that was Gods desire for Him self. Thankyou so much for your obedience in pursuing your calling. May our Heavenly Father continue to bless you & yours and this ministry.
