BLESSING
Blessings are often used in the Bible. A blessing can be a prayer of commission,
a portion of Scripture, or words to encourage and guide.

A blessing to pray over your child:


(Child’s name), “the LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who
saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke
you, but will rejoice over you with singing” (Zephaniah 3:17).
