Since this morning's message, I have been asked for a copy of the blessing I read for those who lacked the blessing from their own parents. I've put it here for your reference. I can't say it's unique to me, but is a composite from various things I came across.
Here it is:
TODAY, You are loved with everlasting love from God. You are well equipped with everything you
need to fulfill your destiny as a child
of God. Before the foundation of the earth, God Almighty planned
for your life and planned for you to be who you are. Psalm 139 says that He
created your inmost being. He knit you together in your mother's womb. You are
fearfully and wonderfully made. All the days ordained for you were written by
God even before you were born.
I am beyond joyful that God has given you as a gift to the world and to
his church. You are wonderful. I
love you and bless you with the promises of God. You are His and have been set
apart from the world for his holy purposes. I bless you with God's everlasting
love, wisdom, peace, and joy. I bless you with freedom from sin and power over
temptation. I bless you with physical
health and with the strength to work and prosper. I bless you with success in study. I bless you with an abundance of
relationships. I bless you with
reconciled relationships that have been broken.
I bless you with a strong relationship with God. May you be strong in
prayer. May you be powerful in worship. May you find yourself satisfied in the Word
of God. May God continue to keep His
hand of favor and prosper you in all that you do, and may you serve our Lord
Jesus Christ all the days of your life. I bless you in Jesus’ Name.
