the blessing & prayer nook  

Welcome friends to the Blessing and Prayer Nook.

Many years ago now I stumbled upon the world of blessing your spirit. I learned there was a BIG difference between talking ABOUT our spirit and talking TO our human spirit. Life-changing and transformational are two words that come to mind. I have been a spirit-filled Christian for decades and yet I had missed this key piece. Baffling, really.

I started out reading and devouring all I could get my hands on and soaked in the excitement as my spirit was awakening as if from a deep sleep. There was a shift that took place as my spirit was coming to the front and starting to make itself known to me in a way I hadn’t experienced before.

Like. kinda. actually. dialoguing. 

This went on for some time and I sat in the power of it. Soon enough it dawned on me that this was about to revolutionise my prayer life as I was going to extend this paradigm to the lives of others. Starting with loved ones, I began to soak their spirit in blessings.

The spirit has the potential to heal our souls and I found that this kind of ministry fast-tracked much of my healing and growth.

Names of God referring to the human spirit

the God of the spirits of all flesh (Numbers 16:22)

the Father of our spirits (Hebrews 12:9)

God wants us to invest in the nurture of our spirit.

May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Thessalonians 5:23, 24

We are made to distinguish what is spirit and what is soul.

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

Saints refreshing the spirit of others

In addition to our own encouragement, we were especially delighted to see how happy Titus was, because his spirit has been refreshed by all of you. 2 Corinthians 7:13

I rejoice over the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, because they have refreshed my spirit and yours. 1 Corinthians 16:17-18

As you scroll down, have a read of what other’s have shared. There are blessings scattered amongst the pages below and there are prayers.

By all means, just start and believe that what you post will be just what another sojourner needs to hear. Perhaps a safety net or cushion to catch someone’s fall. 

God has not left us powerless. Encourage yourself and others in the Lord, knowing that our labor is not in vain.

If you are new to the concept of blessing your spirit I invite you to read about that here. Much of the pioneering work on this subject was introduced by Arthur Burk.

4DBlessing Model is a short course showing you an easy-to-remember model to pray a blessing over others. Using this teaching will bring healing to both yourself and those you pray over. I can attest to this from my years of teaching this to thousands. David Tensen. (i have done this course and loved it!)

"O afflicted one, storm-tossed, and not comforted, Behold, I will set your stones in antimony, And your foundations I will lay in sapphires. Isaiah 54:11

the sapphire stone was the second stone of the high priest's breastplate and had engraved upon it the name Simeon- 'he who hears'. 

thus the sapphire connection
