Rediscovering the Ministry of Blessing
by Russ Parker
"Bless you", "Blessings", "God bless"—we use these phrases in all sorts of situations, perhaps rather unthinkingly. Nonetheless, there is within us a desire for the good of others, and this riveting book is an encouragement to believe that our longing to bless is to be nurtured and celebrated. "The Bible teaches us," Russ Parker writes, "that blessing is a unique ministry resource gifted to believers to effect the purposes of God in people's lives."
The author tells of situations of family estrangement, depression and chronic illness; of times of hopelessness and helplessness where miraculous transformation has been wrought through calling on God to bless someone with the richest blessing they are able to receive.
As he has traveled the country teaching the ministry of blessing, Russ has seen an enthusiastic response and uptake, especially among those involved in prayer ministry. He believes it is time for all who want to be part of God's renewal—both in church and through reaching out to the wider community—to consider how we might help others to flourish as the people God has called them to be.
Rediscovering the Ministry of Blessing includes a wealth of practical suggestions and a collection of blessing prayers for various occasions.
