Throughout our time exploring the Lord’s Prayer this past season, Kellye Fabian has been capturing our journey with beauty and eloquence in the words of her benediction blessing that she reads to us in closing each week.
Many of you have been asking for her to share the words and we are pleased today to share her beautiful phrasing below. I don’t know about you, but this blessing is so wonderful – I want to put it up all over my home! So in the next week or so we have a team working on creating an artistic lettering of this blessing for you to download and print at home for use where ever you could use a beautiful reminder of where we’ve been this past season.
Until then, here is Kellye’s blessing, we hope that you can receive these words and be blessed where ever you are this day.
The Lord’s Prayer Blessing
by Kellye Fabian
May you join with our Lord Jesus in calling on our Father.
May you feel our Father’s presence in your lungs – in your inhale and in your exhale.
May you have eyes that see the presence of the kingdom now and celebrate; may you have eyes that notice the kingdom’s absence and then bring God’s light.
May you have the courage to be small in God’s presence and dependent on his grace.
May you have the humility to be attentive to the bread God provides to you this day.
May you, at the slightest turn and with the smallest step toward him, have eyes to see the Father who runs to you, throws his arms around you, and calls you his beloved daughter…his beloved son.
May you open your heart and receive God’s gentle grace as he makes and remakes you into a forgiver.
May you, in the midst of the darkest valley, surrender to the leadership of the Good Shepherd, who leads you through every trial and every temptation and delivers you from all evil.
Our Father, your kingdom reigns forever and ever.
Our Father, yours is the power forever and ever.
Our Father, all the glory be to you alone forever and ever.
