Prayer Journey Day 3- Spoken Prayer – Blessing
Numbers 6:24-26 says: “The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.”
Hebrews 4:12, NIV: “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” … It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
Words hold the power of life and death (Proverbs 18:21). We see evidence of this time and time again throughout God’s Word. For example, think of the power of the words spoken over Jacob and Esau (Genesis 27). Or take Jacob’s blessings spoken over his 12 sons who, according to the blessing given, became the 12 tribes of Israel (Genesis 49). A blessing can be a prayer of commission, a Bible passage, or words of encouragement. Blessings can be spoken for the purpose of declaring God’s protection, joy, wisdom, and peace. Allow the power of God’s spoken Word to be a blessing to you and to those in your circle of influence in these uncertain days.

- Take time to pray a blessing over your home. Pray room by room throughout your house. Pray for God’s hedge of protection over and around your house from the foundation up to the rooftop. Pray that God will help you to build a sure foundation on Jesus.
- Pray for God’s blessings to be upon all those who enter your home.
- Go for a prayer walk or drive through your neighborhood. Pray blessings for those who are depressed, alone, in quarantine, sick, with young children, with aged parents, out on the frontlines. The list is endless.
