Sabbath Keeping

"May the Lord bless thee and keep thee. The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee. The Lord life up His countenance upon thee, and give thee peace."
"May God, the Lord, bless us with all heavenly benediction, and make us pure and holy in his sight. May the riches of his glory abound in us. May He instruct us with the word of truth, inform us with the Gospel of salvation, and enrich us with his love, Through Jesus Christ, our Lord." ~ Gelasian Sacramentary
"A sense of blessedness comes from a change of heart, 
not from more blessings."
"The blessing of the Lord rest and remain upon all his people, in every land, of every tongue; the Lord meet in mercy all that seek him; the Lord hasten his coming , and give us, his people, the blessing of peace." ~ Bishop Handley Moule
"Not in rewards, 
but in the strength to strive, 
the blessing lies."
~ J. W. Towbridge ~
"Change, like sunshine, can be a friend or a foe, a blessing or a curse, a dawn or a dusk." 
~ William A. Ward ~
"May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
May God be with you and bless you; 
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortune, 
Rich in blessings,
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.
May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you.
May true be the hearts that love you."
~ Traditional Irish Blessing ~

"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst
for righteous,
For they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
For they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart
For they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers
For they will be called children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted
because of righteous
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people insult you,
persecute you and falsely say all kinds of
evil against you because of me."
If you'd like your name added to the prayer list, please let me know. Unless requested, names will remain for one month; around the world, people are praying.
