"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." ESV
It is a sacrificial gesture of love to ask for God to bless others. When we do this, it shows our own right relationship with the Lord and our desire to see Him bless and protect others. Ask the Lord to keep His face toward others, smiling on them in His never ending grace and mercy. Pray for the blessing of peace on them that is so rare in our times. What a beautiful way to bless and pray for each other.
Heavenly Father, please forgive us for always seeking Your blessings for ourselves. We confess that we are more self-centered that we want to admit. Give us Your Spirit of loving others so that we will pray Your blessings on them continually, knowing that You are already pouring out Your blessings on us. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
