O Lord, I desire to be blessed by You. I fear You with respect to the acknowledgement of who You are: Creator, Savior, Deliverer, the One True God.
My attitude towards You is one of reverence and honor. You are so high above me, yet You invite me to come to You, to approach You, and to be in Your presence.
That in itself is a blessing. Your thoughts and Your ways are far beyond what I can think or even imagine.
Father, help me know Your ways and walk in them as I live day to day. Show me how to honor You by living according to Your commands. Give me the wisdom and discernment to know what is right and honoring to You.
And give me the strength of character to choose the right and turn away from the wrong. Being obedient to Your ways keeps me under the umbrella of Your protection and blessing.
I ask for Your blessing all the days of my life. May I see my children honor and serve You. May I live to see my children’s children. You teach me “peace” means protection, prosperity, purposeful living in joy, health, wholeness, security – summed up in the word “shalom.”
Thank You for Your shalom, for Your “peace.” May I see it in my family. And in my country. And in Jerusalem. Amen
