PRAYER OF BLESSING
In the Old Testament the Lord taught Moses how to pray a blessing.
Here is that blessing:
“The Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you;
The Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.”
Pray this simple prayer for your loved ones, friends, children and family by name with all of your heart.
NUMBERS 6:22-26, NIV
22 “The LORD said to Moses,
23 “Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them:
24 ” ‘ “The LORD bless you and keep you;
25 the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you;
26 the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.”
