A Simple Blessing

Published by Community Chaplain on

Over the next 6 weeks we will be embarking on a Sermon Series based on the book  ” A Simple Blessing” by Michael W. Smith. As Michael W. Smith points out, there is extra-ordinary power in an ordinary prayer prayed by ordinary people. Here is the Prayer of Blessing he prays over people, which we will be looking at on this blog over the next 6 weeks.

The Prayer of Blessing

In the name of Jesus Christ,

I bless you with the promises of God,

which are “yes” and “amen.”

May the Holy Spirit make you healthy

and strong in body, mind, and spirit

to move in faith and expectancy.

May God’s angels be with you to

protect and keep you.

Be blessed with supernatural strength

to turn your eyes from

foolish, worthless, and evil things, and to shut out

the demeaning and the negative.

Instead may you behold the beauty of things

that God has planned for you

as you obey his Word.

May God bless your ears to hear the lovely,

the uplifting, and the encouraging.

May your mind be strong, disciplined,

balanced, and faith-filled.

May your feet walk in holiness and

your steps be ordered by the Lord.

May your hands be tender and helping,

blessing those in need.

May your heart be humble and

receptive to one another

and to the things of God, not to the world.

God’s grace be upon your home,

that it may be a sanctuary of rest and renewal,

a haven of peace where sounds of joy

and laughter grace its walls

where love and unconditional acceptance

of one another is the constant rule.

May God give you the spiritual strength to

overcome the evil one

and avoid temptation.

May God’s grace be upon you to

fulfill your dreams and visions

May goodness and mercy follow you

all the days of your long life.

AMEN
