My Prayer of Blessing For You:
“The LORD bless thee –
Father, grant your highest good in the lives of each who read. May they receive it at your hand knowing –
“all things work together for good
to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
and keep thee –
Father, sanctify completely your people. May each be found blameless when Jesus returns. Thank you, for your faithfulness to those you have called.
“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly:
and I pray God
your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless
unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Faithful is he that calleth you,
who also will do it.”
1 Thessalonians 5:23,24
The Lord make his face shine upon thee-
Father it has pleased you to abundantly bless us in Jesus Christ with all good things. May each who read receive your grace and glory and walk daily in your blessings.
“For the LORD God is a sun and shield:
the LORD will give grace and glory;
no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth I thee…
He that spared not his own Son,
but delivered him up for us all,
how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”
Psalm 84:11,12; Romans 8:32
And be gracious unto thee –
Father, may all who read know your mercy and compassion. May you cover them with your lovingkindness and care when trials come. May they remember –
“It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.
The LORD is my portion, saith my soul:
therefore will I hope in him.
The LORD is good unto them that wait for him,
to the soul that seeketh him.
It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait
for the salvation of the LORD…
Casting all your care upon him;
for he careth for you.”
Ecclesiastes 3:22-26; 1 Peter 5:7
The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee,
Father, You have given salvation through Jesus Christ to all who will receive him. May each who read be able to sing the joyful sound – Jesus Saves*. Only here can each know the fullness of the pleasure of your Presence in their lives. May all be found rejoicing in you for you have exalted the believer to be your own. Be their strength, their defense, and their King. May the joy of your Presence fill each life.
“Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound:
they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.
In thy name shall they rejoice all the day:
and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.
For thou art the glory of their strength:
and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.
For the LORD is our defence;
and the Holy One of Israel is our king…
I am with you always,
even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Psalm 89:15-18;Matthew 28:20b
And give thee peace.” Numbers 6:24-26
Father, thank you for the peace we have with you through Jesus Christ. May your peace cover each one and fill each heart. If any lack peace may they look to you for your word declares –
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid…
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing
by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
John 14:27; Philippians 4:6,7
Father, it is in Jesus’s name I ask you to extend these blessings of yours to all who will receive them. Thank you, for bringing them to encourage me. Amen.
