blessing

One of my new favorite authors Kathryn Springer, wrote a beautiful blessing prayer in her book The Prince Charming List. I read the book a couple of weeks ago but keep thinking about the prayer over and over. The context was a sleepover of a bunch of youth group girls before one girl went off to college. The youth leader prayed the following prayer of this particular young woman. I thought it was so touching and wonderful and encouraged me so much I thought I would share it with you.

“Friend, you are so loved. A light in the world. Chosen. Gifted. The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace. The Lord gift you and make you prosper.”
