Lately I’ve been taking very seriously my identity as part of a royal priesthood from 1 Peter 2:9.
Among so many other wonderful duties, priests pronounce blessings. I want to make it part of my daily practice to speak blessings over my children, my husband, my neighbors, and anyone the Lord brings to mind. I can pray that God prospers them, brings them peace, helps them find favor, strengthens them.
I love thinking of myself as someone walking around, pronouncing blessing.
