The Lord bless you, and keep you;
The Lord cause His face to shine on you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His face to you,
And give you peace.

Numbers 6:24-26

Blessings are as important as any other kind of prayer. We may say prayers of thanksgiving and of praise when good things happen. We may pray for guidance or intercession when we need God’s help. We may even cry out for comfort when we feel lost or disheartened. But do we bless one another enough? I am saying this prayer of blessing for you all today, I hope you can share it with someone else.
