Numbers 6:24-26 (NLT) – May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you His favour and give you His peace.

This passage is precious to me since I was introduced to the blessing at a Westheights Take-It-Home event. What an amazing set of verses! To have Gods face shine upon you and His peace is a concept that I very much desire. The true peace only from God.  I pray these verses for my boys each night as I tuck them in. They now expect it and won’t settle down until we “pray the blessing”.

The same passage in THE MESSAGE Paraphrase: God bless you and keep you, God smile on you and gift you, God look you full in the face and make you prosper.
