Blessing Others in Prayer

"I am about to go the way of all the earth," he said. "So be strong, show yourself a man, and observe what the LORD your God requires: Walk in his ways, and keep his decrees and commands, his laws and requirements, as written in the Law of Moses, so that you may prosper in all you do and wherever you go, and that the LORD may keep his promise to me: 'If your descendants watch how they live, and if they walk faithfully before me with all their heart and soul, you will never fail to have a man on the throne of Israel.' 1 Kings 2:2-4

The entire first chapter of First Kings is how Adonijah wanted to be King but those advising King David insisted that Solomon take the throne. Then, as David is on his death bed, he blesses Solomon, who is considered the wisest man who ever lived.

David blessed Solomon thusly, "So be strong, show yourself a man, and observe what the LORD your God requires: Walk in his ways, and keep his decrees and commands, his laws and requirements, as written in the Law of Moses, so that you may prosper in all you do and wherever you go." This is a prayer that most Believers would love to have prayed over them. So, why don't we?

Read the prayer over and over again until you commit it to memory, then put it in the form of a prayer: "I pray that this person will be strong and show himself strong, and that he will observe what the Lord requires of him. I pray that he will walk in His ways, and keep his decrees and commands, as written in the Law of Moses, so that he may prosper in all he does and wherever he goes."

Memorize this blessing, then pray it over a different person every day. Then, watch that person grow in the Lord!
