A PRAYER OF BLESSING FOR YOU!

PSALM 115:14-15:
14 May the LORD give you increase more and more,
You and your children.
15 May you be blessed by the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.”

OBSERVATION: This morning as I open God’s Word, as I meditate and pray, I am drawn to these words. It is a prayer for blessing and provision for those who place their trust in the Lord. In contrast to those who trust in idols made of gold and silver the Psalmist proclaims:

9 “O Israel, trust in the LORD;
He is their help and their shield.
10 O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD;
He is their help and their shield.
11 You who fear the LORD, trust in the LORD;
He is their help and their shield.”

So it is appropriate and good to pray for blessing and provision for those who place their trust in the Lord. This morning I direct my heart in prayer for you –

“May the Lord give you increase more and more.” May He bless the work of your hands, your resources, and your generosity and care for others. May He grant you favor in the workplace and in your home. May you be the godly husband, wife, father, mother, sister, brother – that the Lord is calling you to be.

“You and your children.” May your children, and your children’s children be blessed to grow up in a godly home and choose to serve the Lord at a young age. May they see the example of godly parents and grandparents and choose to walk in the paths of righteousness and fruitfulness as they place their faith in Jesus Christ and walk according to His way. May their lives be protected from harm and blessed with health as their soul prospers in the Lord.

“May you be blessed by the Lord Who made heaven and earth.” May you most of all grow in His character and His love. May you be transformed in you inner man to become more and more like Jesus Christ. May the Fruit of the Spirit abound in you and overflow. May the blessing of the Creator reside in your spirit and continually lead you in the paths of righteousness, blessing, and life.

On this Thanksgiving week – I pray that you may be greatly blessed. May He continue to watch over all the concerns of your heart and fulfill His perfect will in your life. May you know the blessings of thanksgiving and praise as you look unto Him. In Jesus Name!
