The Priestly Blessing

January 13th, 2017

I love the blessings from Numbers 6:24-26. It is the one God told Moses to tell Aaron to speak over the people. It says…

22 Then the Lord said to Moses, 23 “Tell Aaron and his sons to bless the people of Israel with this special blessing: 

 24 ‘May the Lord bless you
and protect you. 25 May the Lord smile on you
and be gracious to you. 26 May the Lord show you his favor
and give you his peace.’ 

 27 Whenever Aaron and his sons bless the people of Israel in my name, I myself will bless them.” 

This is my prayer for the people of our church. I want God to bless and protect them. I want God to smile upon them and be gracious to them. I want God to show them favour and give them peace.

I like the fact that God says that if we bless people in His name, He Himself will bless them. As a Pastor I pray this every day for our church members.

God Bless,

Dave
