Blessing Prayer Collection
The blessing prayers that follow are used as part of Journey Toward Wholeness,
a healing retreat for women. These blessing were taken from Blessing Your Spirit
by Arthur Burk and Sylvia Gunter. I adapted the prayers slightly to fit our situation.
Blessing Your Spirit is available on this website. Read more about this fine resource.
