A Blessing

“The Lord our God be with you, as he was with our fathers. May he not leave you or forsake you, that he may incline your hearts to him, to walk in all his ways and to keep his commandments, his statutes, and his rules, which he commanded our fathers. Let these words of mine, with which I have pleaded before the Lord, be near to the Lord our God Day and night, and may he maintain me and my family as each day requires, that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God; there is no other. Let your heart therefore be wholly true to the Lord our God, walking in his statutes and keeping his commandments…”   1 Kings 8:58ff (edited)
