This Day in History: 0000-10-30

October 30 – Numbers 6:24-26 

The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make His face shine upon you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn His face toward you
and give you peace. 

This beautiful prayer was given by God to Aaron and his family as a priestly blessing. They were to speak it over the Israelites in order to put God’s name on them and invite His blessing. I think it would be great to use it today to guide each of us in prayer for one another. Let’s pray for each other! I’ll pray for each of you reading this, and you can pray for me, and for all the others reading this too! May it serve to put His name on each of us and invite His blessing upon each of His dearly loved daughters! 

Dear Heavenly Father,
I come before You today on behalf of Your daughters, all over the world. Lord, You know each one. I ask that You would bless them. Every single one. And keep them safely in You. Lord, I ask that you would make Your presence known in their lives in such a way that it would brighten the dark corners of their world. Be gracious to them. Be on their side. Be attentive to their needs, and near to their hearts. Lord, give each one Your peace. The peace that passes all understanding which only comes from You! Thank you for each one, Lord. Bless them today. In Jesus’s Name, amen.
