Blessings

BLESSINGS: To This You Were Called. Sometimes we wonder what to pray for someone we feel compassion for, or with whom we struggle to get along. The apostle Peter said, “Repay evil with a blessing, because to this you were called, so that you might inherit a blessing.” 1 Peter 3:9. Blessings …To This You Were Called, will start you on a journey of rediscovering the simplicity and joy of blessing others with your words and uplifting your own spirit. What is a blessing? A blessing is speaking out God’s heart for another person or yourself. It is a statement of good intention that moves someone towards the destiny God has for them. A blessing always agrees with the Word of God and provides hope for the hearer. This book contains 40 blessings on a variety of topics, which can be used as prayers to bless others and prayed over ourselves. Each blessing is based on scripture and will help you use ‘the Sword of the Spirit’ as a positive weapon to bless others and bring blessing upon yourself. Blessings are a key to the Kingdom of Heaven.
