Numbers 6:25 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: 26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
God told His men to pray over the people of Israel using the words above. What a beautiful prayer they were to pray. They were to ask God to bless His people. They were to ask God to be full of grace and kindness towards them. They were to ask God to give His people peace.
I want this heart and attitude towards all the people that God has placed in the ministry where I serve. I want to be asking God to bless. I want to be believing that God will bless. I want to have the right heart towards the people of God.
God wanted this prayed over His people. It wasn’t the people asking that this be prayed, it was God. Can you imagine how much God loves us! God wants His servants even to pray for His people!
