A Blessing

With our lives we bless or curse others. We leave those around us and those who come after us – our children – with a curse or blessing on their lives.

The pastor and elders laid hands on our little Emily this past summer and prayed a Seven-Fold Blessing on her.

A friend posted this Scriptural blessing on Facebook today. I wanted to share it with all of you who read the Hope Blog.

“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”’

Numbers 6: 24-26

Here is a blessing from the New Testament.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.  ~ Romans 15:13

May all of you have a blessed week!

Here is the blessing from Numbers put to music by John Rutter.

    My wife and I have prayed this prayer over our children and grandchildren everyday for many, many years. It is known as the “Aaronic” or priestly blessing. We want to encourage everyone who reads this blog to do the same for their families! Shalom!
