A Fall Prayer of Petition and Blessing adapted from Psalm 116, 127 & 128

Jehovah-Shalom –Prince of Peace – Isaiah 9:6

I love the Lord, because He has heard my voice and my supplications.  He has inclined His ear to me, therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.

Unless the Lord builds the house, your work is for nothing.

Unless the Lord watches over the city, those who watch over it stay awake for nothing.

You rise up early, go to bed late and work hard for your food, all for nothing.                                                                         For the Lord gives to His loved ones even while they sleep.

May you have His peace!

Prosperity and joy are given to those who fear the Lord—all who follow His ways!

You will enjoy the fruit of your labor. How joyful and prosperous you will be!

You will be like a fruitful grapevine, flourishing within your home.

Your children will be like vigorous young olive trees as they sit around your table.

That is the Lord’s blessing for those who fear Him.                            

 May you have His peace!

Our children are a gift from the Lord. They are truly a special reward. The happiness they bring to our homes is one of many blessings.

May the Lord continually bless you. May you prosper as long as you live. May you live to enjoy your grandchildren.  May you have His peace!
