Blessing: Speak Good Words to Influence Others

Advertisements

As many around you celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day with green beer, I will celebrate it with another special blessing for you Lindsey. Where ever you go, be the mouth of the Lord, even when you are not speaking since your music goes with you and you influence others. May the Lord make you as a fortified wall, may he make you utterly secure so that you can influence those around you rather then let them influence you or make you afraid to tell the world about your beliefs, about your God who is there to save you, rescue you and keep you safe.

Heavenly Father, good morning. I welcome the day celebrating a godly man who the world refers to as Saint Patrick. Thank you for providing a day named with holy reference and may it provide an excuse for some people to find you. Thank you for drawing them to you this day. And thank you for the special blessing in scriptures that I can pray over your beloved daughter Lindsey today:

Therefore thus saith the Lord, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: let them return unto thee; but return not thou unto them. And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee: for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the Lord. And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible. (Jeremiah 15:19-21)

Lord, I am here again, ready to bless your daughter who loves you. Yes, today I pray this special blessing over you Lindsey, the blessing that I prayed at the very start of today’s prayer! While the world celebrates a godly man with drinking, may you celebrate this day acknowledging and praising our God Almighty. And we both can give all the glory to the Lord. The glory is all his. I pray this blessing over you in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

NLT:
This is how the Lord responds:

“If you return to me, I will restore you
    so you can continue to serve me.
If you speak good words rather than worthless ones,
    you will be my spokesman.
You must influence them;
    do not let them influence you!
They will fight against you like an attacking army,
    but I will make you as secure as a fortified wall of bronze.
They will not conquer you,
    for I am with you to protect and rescue you.
    I, the Lord, have spoken!
Yes, I will certainly keep you safe from these wicked men.
    I will rescue you from their cruel hands.”

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
