DAY 28 - BENEDICTION & BLESSING
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.
This priestly prayer was given to Aaron (and his sons) by God for the people of Israel. It was to serve as a benediction, or a closing blessing. In it we are reminded that we can be…
…recipients of divine blessing.
… protected by the Almighty God.
… exposed to His radiant presence.
… encounter His amazing grace.
… capture His attention.
… walk in His full peace.
As you finish up this devotional, this does not need to be the end of praying scripture over your teen. In fact, in the pages to follow there are references to an additional 32 verses or passages of scripture to pray… allowing 60 days of praying scripture.
For today, allow this priestly benediction to serve as a prayer for your child. Pray his/her name specifically in place of every time the word “you” appears.
Bless you and keep ________. Lord, make your face shine on _______ and be gracious to ___________. Lord, turn your face toward ________ and give _______ peace.
