New Year begins with God’s Blessing

The Daily Bible Reading starts the New Year with the prayer the Lord gave (and still gives!) leaders to pray over the people of God, blessing them and us with God’s shine. The LORD spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to the leaders and say, Let this be the way you bless My people, saying: May the LORD bless you and keep you. May the LORD cause His face on you to shine. May the LORD be gracious to you, and lift you into the image of God and give you peace. Shalom. In this way, the leaders may bless the people of God with the Name of God, and on each of them the LORD’s own “God bless” will rest. Shalom. © 2013, Mary Harwell Sayler , prayer-a-phrased poem from Numbers 6:22-27 ~~
