Today is the third blessing from the Sermon on the Mount. Lindsey, I bless you as you strive to remain meek for then you will inherit the earth.
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for language. Thank you for our minds to use language to communicate. Thank you for those who understand more than one language and are able to translate from one to another for us. And thank you for the basis of today’s blessing for your daughter based on the scripture where Jesus said:
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. (Matthew 5:5)
Also … we remember that Jesus himself was meek (also see the definition below):
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. (Matthew 11:29)
Lord, it’s me again. I am here before you again. As usual, every day, I come before you on behalf of your daughter Lindsey who loves you. And today I am here to bless her. Lindsey, I bless you as you strive to remain meek, just as Jesus was, for then you will inherit the earth! I pray that you will have all the qualities of meekness. I pray that you will remain mild of temper, soft, gentle and not easily provoked. I pray that you will remain humble and not proud. I pray all this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings who we give all the glory! Amen
