More details


More info

Our human spirit is responsive. When it is ignored, it will atrophy. When it is nurtured it will grow.

Truth is the nutrient that most powerfully transforms your spirit. Your spirit needs to know the truth about you and your God. Some of that truth is spoken by the Spirit of God to your spirit and some is input that you deliberately seek.

This book is a series of blessings designed to leverage the growth of your spirit. It begins with a fathering theme. For 40 days, legitimacy and identity are explored from the Father's perspective. Then after we have seen ourselves from God's perspective, He invites us to see Him. There are 21 more days of blessings flowing from the names of God.

Finally at the end of the book there is a list of verses that describe the range of activities and emotions of the human spirit. We have such an emphasis on the work of the Holy Spirit that most people do not have a working theology of their own spirit.

We must focus on speaking to our spirits and the spirits of others, asking God to bring into our lives a massive amount of challenge, nurture, stimulation and direction for the spirit. A person's spirit should rule the soul, but it doesn't get there automatically or accidentally.

Being filled with the Spirit means that God's Spirit in you infuses and controls your spirit, soul, and body. When your spirit is controlled by His Spirit and is dominant over your soul, your whole person is conformed to God's truth and His intention for you.

This is a trailblazing new resource. We would welcome reports on how you have been transformed by using these prayers.

This book is written by Arthur Burk and Sylvia Gunter.

This book was released in 2005.


Fresh water

This book is like fresh water for your spirit. I had the opportunity to read one of the blessings over a group of [mostly] men and women at a Celebrate Recovery meeting. The truth penetrated so quickly and so deeply. There was hardly a dry eye left in the room when I had finished. Several men came rushing up to me, asking to take a photo of the book in order to find and purchase it later. There is no end to the possible ways this book can change ourselves and those around us. I read different blessings over my niece and nephew (teenagers) individually as they fell asleep over the course of a week. They both fell asleep almost immediately each time. They do not encounter positive truth in this way in their own home. The peace was so overwhelming, they couldn't take it- they fell into a deep sleep each time! You don't have to prep someone on the theology behind this book. Give them the book, tell them what to do with it, and let God's truth do the rest. This is my favorite book to give people. After one blessing, they're convinced of its value. So thankful for this!

Deep Awareness

This book brings a deep awareness of ones Spirit. The first time I read it I could feel my spirit coming forward and moving to attention. It was a new and delightful experience. I was very excited about it, and began to share the readings with my children, husband, and then my friends. It has been a pleasure to buy more books as gifts, and to continue to read blessings over my own life and others.
This book was one of my first introductions to nurturing and blessing my Spirit. It is beautiful and rich.
Reading this book will change you!

Thanks bunches

Much needed book!!!

I received this book as a gift from Arthur Honestly, I need to buy two cases because I am always loaning it out. I think I have bought several individual copies and cannot keep them on my own personal shelves. This is an EXCEPTIONAL book for nurturing our inner man. Everyone who reads it says it completely waters very dry places. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it for yourself and family & friends!!!

Unbelievably Amazing

This book truly changed my life. My Mom gave me a copy of it about 10 years ago, and then our church pastors bought copies for the whole church and we read it together as a church. It is one of the most incredible tools I’ve had in my spiritual walk. When I first read it, I actually read it over myself out loud, speaking to my own spirit (changing the verbiage a bit). I saw an immediate shift in my life, and it was profound. I had never heard anything about the topic before I read it, even though I grew up in the church. It was revolutionary for me. The thing that struck me the most was the remarkable feeling I had the first time I could recognize how my spirit operated, versus the way I was used to my soul operating. I felt this wild rush of excitement when I could feel my spirit coming to the front and starting to make itself known to me. It was immensely powerful. As I read the book out loud over myself for the whole duration of the book, I could actually feel my spirit getting stronger and stronger every day. So many things changed inside of me. Insecurities fell away. My true identity came forward. I understood where my legitimacy lay. I felt so built up and edified. I became much closer to the Lord in the process. I have recommended this book to many people over the years, have purchased copies for others, have read it over other people, both in-person and remotely. I have also read this book over people as a form of spiritual warfare in prayer and healing sessions, and it’s been highly successful. Everyone should have a copy of this book!

Blessing your Spirit Book

This book makes you aware of your spirit, as never before. You can feel it sit up and take notice, if it has never heard such positive, life-giving words before. It speaks into most every situation you will encounter. There is something here for everyone, near or far, because there is no dimension in the spirit realm. Read it to someone far away, and you will soon sense they are listening eagerly for their word. These words change lives as they bring you into a deeper relationship with Father God.
