A Prayer of Blessing for Your Children

Whatever age your children may be, whether they are living at home or have moved away, here is a prayer of blessing to pray over them today. It is based upon Numbers 6:22-27.

Father, my heart is full of praise and gratitude to You for blessing me with the gift of my beautiful children. I want to say, over and over again, “Thank You so much!” Your blessings leave me in awe. You have enriched my life in more ways than I could ever imagine.

Your blessing, Father, means everything. My prayer and deep desire is that my children will be blessed of the Lord. May Your blessing be upon them. As Aaron spoke Your blessing over the people of Israel, so I speak Your blessing over my children today.

Father, bless them with Your favor and kindness; keep them by Your power and strength, and deliver them from all evil; may Your face shine upon them with the light of Your radiant love; may they know the abundant riches of Your amazing grace; lift up upon them the smile of Your countenance; shield their hearts and minds with Your abiding peace, the perfect peace that passes all understanding.

And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: "Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, 'This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them: "The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face 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 children of Israel, and I will bless them." Numbers 6:22-27 NKJV

    Hi, thank you very much for this message. I was feeling some heaviness to think of my daughter who is away in Indonesia on official assignment. The prayer you gave is just appropriate and comfortable for me to pray for her.
    Well, the blessing of Joshua has been made into a dismissal song of our Saviour Church (Anglican) in Singapore. Come and visit us to hear this blessing at the end of each service.

    thanks you so much for the wonderful prayer. we all love our children know matter how old they get or we get. matter of fact the older they get the more we ant to pray for them. I am from the southern part of the united states and I have three adult children and we all are living in different states and I ask for your blessing that god will bless me to move back south and that would allow me to be closer to my familys. I do believe that is one of the greatest things one can ask for is to be with family. it is a unity that bind one together. thank you so much for such lovely prayers and god bless you and your family.
