Publishers Description This book explores how verbal blessings can change and restore difficult relationships, highlighting the great power of the living God to work in our daily lives. The spoken blessing is a powerful spiritual weapon with enduring impact. By giving spoken blessings, we can see healing brought to aching souls and restoration brought to bruised relationships. Such wonders are accomplished by the power of God's Spirit through the agency of spoken blessings, just as Scripture affirms: "Death and life are in the power of the tongue." Our words have the power to crush or to heal, to break bones or to plant a tree of life where none has grown before. And these dynamics of the spoken blessing may be truer today than ever. Mr. Gothard's timely message brings this awareness to us in a helpful and encouraging way. "Death and life are in the power of the tongue." Proverbs 18:21 What if spoken blessings could grant freedom from years of bitter hurts? What if they could break down the walls that divide husband from wife, parent from child, and friend from friend? Our words have lasting impact not only for harm, but also for great good. By speaking blessings, we can help bring healing to aching souls and restoration to bruised relationships. Let Bill Gothard share with you the secret of spoken blessings, and embark on a rich family tradition that brings harmony and closeness beyond anything you've previously experienced. Story Behind the Book While dealing with layer after layer of hurts, fears, and barriers that teenagers experience with their parents and God, I often heard cruel statements by a parent during a time of anger. Statements like "I wish you were never born" or "You'll never amount to anything" were like deadly poison affecting everything in that teenager's life. Such is the power of a verbal curse. However, more powerful have been the verbal blessings of a parent to a son or daughter. They have been like sources of refreshment and energy that have guided the goals and decisions of those who received them. With such lasting results from the life-and-death power of the tongue, it was essential to me that this book be written.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Power of Spoken Blessings (LifeChange Books)?
the power of spoken blessings Aug 17, 2005
I'm totally blessed by reading this book. It emphasises the authority and the power of my spoken blessings. But one thing is lacking is that it doesn't guide me of the "how to"... And I found a book that is helpful. "365 Prophetic Promises & Blessings for Your Children" by Sebastian S. - helping a busy mom like me who sometimes just don't know how to express my spoken blessing to bless the children.
Great teaching Apr 22, 2005
The teaching in this book have been a great help to my family! Most every night for the past 3 years we have spoken verbal blessings over our children at bedtime. Our children have even occasionally asked to be able to bless us. I have even seen the blessings I have prayed over my wife come true. This has become a wonderful new part of our family's life.
