New Year’s Blessings from the Word of God

As we begin a new year together, may I pray these blessings from the Word of God over you? I so appreciate each of you and want the very best for you this year. So from me to you —

“‘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.'” Numbers 6:24-26

“May the LORD answer you when you are in distress…May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.” Psalm 20:1a, 4

“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” 2 Corinthians 13:14

“May the God of peace…equip you with everything good for doing his will…” Hebrews 13:20a, 21a

“Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way…” 2 Thessalonians 3:16a

Amen and amen. Have a blessed 2015!

  2. Hi Cheryl,

    I was especially struck just now by the names “the God of peace” and the “Lord of peace.” Hmmm. :)

    Happy New year!
