A Simple Blessing

The extraordinary power of an ordinary prayer – Michael. W Smith

What a deep blessing it is to pray a prayer of blessing over someone.

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

fulfil your dreams and visions

May goodness and mercy follow you

all the days of your long life.
