Prayer for God’s Blessing: Drawing from the Wellsprings of Divine Favor

Listen to this article

Bible Verse: Numbers 6:24-26 (NIV)

“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.”

Heavenly Father, in the majesty of Your name, we humbly approach Your throne of grace, recognizing Your endless love and kindness toward us. As Moses pronounced a blessing upon Aaron and his sons, may Your blessings pour upon us in abundance. We desire that Your face would shine upon us, illuminating our paths and granting us the grace to navigate through the complexities of life. Lord Jesus, just as you multiplied the loaves and fishes, may our limited resources, talents, and time be multiplied under Your touch. Let our lives be a testament to Your favor, and may Your peace, which surpasses all understanding, envelop our hearts and minds. Strengthen our faith, instill in us hope, and let Your blessings overflow in our lives, not for our sakes alone but that we may be a blessing to others. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

The Bible verses from Numbers 6:24-26, commonly known as the Aaronic Blessing, are part of a priestly benediction where God instructs Moses on how the priests should bless the Israelites. The blessing seeks three primary gifts: protection, favor, and peace. When God promises to “bless and keep you,” He speaks of His enduring protection. The phrase “make His face shine upon you” is indicative of God’s gracious favor. It paints a picture of a loving parent looking fondly at their child, offering them undivided attention, grace, and favor. Lastly, when God promises to “turn His face toward you and give you peace”, it emphasizes the divine peace that comes from being in God’s presence—a peace that transcends all human comprehension.

By invoking this blessing in our prayer, we are acknowledging the same desires that the Israelites had: the desire for God’s protection, His favor, and His peace. Furthermore, through the teachings and miracles of Jesus, we understand that God’s blessings are not only for our benefit but are meant to flow through us to bless others. Just as Jesus fed thousands with limited resources, God can multiply what we have when surrendered to Him. This prayer reminds us that seeking God’s blessings is not a mere request for personal gain, but an invitation for His divine favor to permeate every area of our lives, so we can become conduits of His blessings to the world around us.
