A blessing to pray over others

a blessing

22 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 23 “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, Thus you shall bless the people of Israel: you shall say to them, 24 The Lord bless you and keep you; 25 the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; 26 the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.27 “So shall they put my name upon the people of Israel, and I will bless them.” (Numbers 6:22-27)

It was a holy thing in the Old Testament times for a priest of the Lord to pronouce a blessing over the people of Israel. No mere wishing but a blessing in the name of the Lord who is the creator of heaven and earth. With the arrival of the Gospel in your life you too are a priest and Bible confirms this. The priesthood here is not a ritualistic type of priesthood but a spiritual one.

John to the seven churches that are in Asia:Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. (Revelation 1:4-6)

Your priesthood is from God and is meant to glorify the Lord. So bless the children you have in the name of Jesus. Pray the Numbers 6:24-26 prayer over them. It might sound old fashioned but its worth every bit to pray over children and along with them for their success in life. A preacher too must pray the blessing of God over his congregation so that as they walk out after the worship service they continue to revel in the presence of the Lord God and remember that true and everlasting sucess comes from God alone.

The Lord God is unlimited in his power and mercy. Holy is his name. He can do all things abundantly out of his love for those who believe in him and work for his glory. So don’t ever limit the Numbers 6:24-26 prayer just only for children or your local church. Pray for anyone and everyone whom the Holy Spirit leads you to bless them in the name of Jesus so that the Lord God is exalted through them in their prosperity.

  1. Praise The Most High, brothers and sisters prepare to leave the kingdom of Satan completely, we will meet in the wild if the Lord is willing, do not fear, be strong in The Truth, the Lord is gathering His church in the wilderness, and is gathering the children of disobedience in the main lands were many go seeking pleasure and comfort in the finer things, which is the kingdom of Satan. Do not fear to leave this wicked land, just flee when the time comes.
