Blessing: Live Long and Prosper (including Spock YouTube clips)

Advertisements

 

Lindsey, the 40 consecutive days of blessings ends with one you should enjoy since it was made popular by the Spock greeting on Star Trek saying “Live long and prosper!” (see YouTube clips after the prayer). And so I bless you once more Lindsey. May you live long and prosper!

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for another day, another new day, another new day with you! Thank you for my breath and for my life. Thank you for being with me always. And thank you for these blessings from scripture that relate directly to today’s blessing for your daughter – from Ephesians, 3 John and Deuteronomy:

  • Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the Lord thy God giveth thee, for ever. (Deuteronomy 4:40)
  • Honour thy father and thy mother, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. (Deuteronomy 5:16)
  • Ye shall walk in all the ways which the Lord your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess. (Deuteronomy 5:33)
  • Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. (3 John 1:2)
  • Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. (Ephesians 6:2-3)

Lord, it’s me. I am here again to conclude 40 days of blessings prayed daily over your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray that you would live long and prosper. I pray that it may go well with you and that you would have good health. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

And background to the hand gesture (today’s blessing already covered the background to Star Trek’s Spock saying “live long and prosper”):

All five scriptures from the HCSB translation (which strives to be very accurate):

  • Keep His statutes and commands, which I am giving you today, so that you and your children after you may prosper and so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you for all time. (Deuteronomy 4:40)
  • Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and so that you may prosper in the land the Lord your God is giving you. (Deuteronomy 5:16)
  • Follow the whole instruction the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live, prosper, and have a long life in the land you will possess. (Deuteronomy 5:33)
  • Dear friend, I pray that you may prosper in every way and be in good health physically just as you are spiritually. (3 John 1:2)
  • Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with a promise, so that it may go well with you and that you may have a long life in the land. (Ephesians 6:2-3)

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
