A FATHER'S AND MOTHER'S BLESSING
I love you my child. Let that soak in for a minute!
You are special. You are a gift from God to me. I thank God for allowing me to be a father / mother to you. I love you and I’m proud of you.
I ask you to forgive me for the things I’ve said and done that have hurt you. And for the things I didn’t do, and for the words I never said that you wanted to hear. I break and cut off every curse that has followed you as a result of my sins, your mother’s sins and the sins of your ancestors.
I praise God that Jesus became a curse on the cross that we could come out from under every curse and enter into the blessing.
So I take this opportunity and this privilege to speak blessing over you today!
I bless you with the healing of all wounds of the heart – wounds of rejection, neglect and abuse that you have suffered. In Jesus’ name, I break the power of all cruel and unjust words spoken over you.
I bless you with overflowing and abundant peace, the peace that only the Prince of Peace can give.
I bless your life with fruitfulness: good fruit, abundant fruit and fruit that remains; that whatever you ask the Father in Jesus’ name He may give you.
I bless you with the fruit of the Spirit. All His love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth.
I bless you with success. You are the head and not the tail; you are above and not beneath.
I bless you with a strong body and divine health all the days of your life.
I bless the gifts that God has given you.
I bless you with wisdom to make good decisions and to develop your full potential in Christ.
I bless you with overflowing prosperity, enabling you to be a blessing to others.
I bless you with spiritual influence, for you are the light of the world and the salt of the earth.
I bless you with depth of spiritual understanding and a close walk with your Lord. You will not stumble or falter, for the Word of God will be a lamp to your feet and a light to your path.
I bless you to see women & men as Jesus did and does.
I bless you to see, draw out and celebrate the gold in people, not the dirt.
I bless you to release God in the workplace – not just to testify, or model good character, but also to glorify God with the excellence and creativity of your work.
I bless you with good friends. You have favor with God and man.
I bless you with abounding and overflowing love, from which you will minister God’s grace to others. You will minister God’s comforting grace to others.
You are blessed, my child!
You are blessed with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus. Amen!
