The Lord Bless You . . .

I have the following verses posted on my desk because I need to be reminded each day of the Lord’s greatness in my weakness. I need reassurance of all He can do in my life.

“The Lord bless you, and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine on you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance on you,
And give you peace.”
(Numbers 6:24–26)

Can you relate? If so, today you may want to personalize those verses in a prayer similar to this:

Lord, will you bless the hurting,
Will you keep near the anxious,
Will you shine strength over the weak,
Will you display grace to the lost,
Will you abide with those in anguish,
Will you provide your peace and rest today?
