In the latter years of me pastoring I would always end each service speaking this over the congregation. We speak life or death with the tongue, blessings or cursing.
The Pastor’s Blessing:
In the name of Jesus Christ, I’m blessed with the promises of God, which are “yea and amen”. The Holy Spirit makes me healthy and strong in body, mind, and spirit to move in faith and expectancy. God’s angels are with me to protect me.
I am blessed with supernatural strength to turn my eyes from foolish, worthless, and evil things. Instead, may I behold the beauty of things that God has planned for me as I obey His Word.
I bless my ears to hear the lovely, the uplifting, and the encouraging, and to shut out the demeaning and the negative. My feet walk in holiness. My steps are ordered by the Lord. My hands are tender-helping hands to those in need, hands that bless. My heart is humble and receptive to one another, and to the things of God, and not to the world. My mind is strong, disciplined, balanced and faith filled.
God’s grace is upon my home, that it may be a sanctuary or rest and renewal, a haven of peace where sounds of joy and laughter grace its walls, where love and unconditional acceptance of one another is consistent.
God gives me success and prosperity in my business and places of labor as I acknowledge and obey the imperative of Scripture concerning the tithe and The Feast First Fruits Offerings according to Malachi 3.
God gives me spiritual strength to overcome the evil one and avoid temptation. God’s grace is upon me to fulfill my dreams and visions. May goodness and mercy follow me all the days of my long life.
The Lord blesses me and keeps me. The Lord makes His face to shine upon me and is gracious unto me. The Lord lifts His countenance upon me and gives me peace.
I am blessed in the Name of Yeshua, Jesus Christ.
Genesis 49: 28b- And he blessed them; he blessed each one according to his own blessing.
