Christian Blessing

Before you begin, take a deep breathe and find the center of your being.

Take your time here, read slowly, and then again with a deeper sacred awareness. 

The Lord bless you and keep you,
Make His face shine upon you
And be gracious to you.
The Lord turn His face toward you
And give you peace.


May His favor be upon you,
And a thousand generations,
And your family,

And your children
And their children

And their children.


May His presence go before you,
And behind you,
And beside you,
All around you,
And within you,
He is with you. 
In the morning
And in the evening,
In your coming
And your going,
In your weeping
And rejoicing,
He is for you.
