Priestly Prayer for God’s People

At the moment, the world seems to be in a panic over a virus, causing man-made systems, businesses, and services to shut down. As health officials tell us, we need to wash hands with soap every time we’re out and keep ourselves – and the air in our homes – hydrated. Most important, however, we need to decide if we truly do trust God, Who made us, cares for us, and gives us this prayer: Numbers 6:24-26 – the priestly prayer-blessing of Aaron over God’s people (KJV) The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. From  the Book of KJV Prayers  -  actual prayers from the  King James Version  of the Bible (KJV) collected by  Mary Harwell Sayler , ©2019  Numbers 6:24-26 – the prayer of Aaron (paraphrased) Lord, we pray You bless and keep us. We pray Your face shines graciously upon us. We pray You look kindly toward us and
