The Lord Bless You and Keep You
The purposes of this prayer are: Lovingkindness and Friendship/Fellowship.
Compassionate Lord, after you gave Moses instructions for the Levite clans, you instructed him regarding the blessing that Aaron should give to the Israelites: “The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, ‘Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, thus you shall bless the Israelites: You shall say to them, the Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace. So they shall put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.’” Numbers 6:22–27 (NRSV). Lord, we pray that you similarly bless believers in Jesus. Please make you face shine upon us, Father, and give us peace. Amen.
