BLESSINGS OVER THE FAMILY

Blessing Over The Wife

The Husband traditionally reads Proverbs 31:10-31 or a shortened paraphrased version of it over his wife. He may also read a different Scripture and apply it to her; or he can pray a Holy Spirit led blessing over her. Single Dads can skip the blessing over the wife and go directly to the blessing over the children, followed by the Aaronic blessing over the whole family.

Version Adapted from Proverbs 31:10-31 That Ascension Ministries Uses

May Yahweh bless you for being an excellent wife and for taking care of our household.
You are precious and valuable to me, and my heart trusts you.
I will have no lack of gain, because you do me good and not evil all the days of your life.
You work with your hands in delight.
You extend your hand to the poor, and you stretch out your hands to the needy.
Strength and dignity are your clothing, and you smile at the future.
Your mouth is filled with wisdom and kindness and your children rise up and bless you.
You fear the Lord and delight in His ways and for that you will be praised.

Blessing Over The Husband

The wife traditionally reads Psalms 1:1-3 or a shortened paraphrased version of it over her husband. She may also read a different Scripture and apply it to him; or she can pray a Holy Spirit led blessing over him. Single Moms can skip the blessing over the husband and go directly to the blessing over the children, followed by the Aaronic blessing over the whole family.

Version Adapted from Psalms 1:1-3 That Ascension Ministries Uses

How blessed are you, my husband.
For you do not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor do you stand in the path of sinners,
Nor do you sit in the seat of scoffers!
But your delight is in the Torah of Yahweh,
And in His Law you meditate day and night.
You are like a tree firmly planted by streams of water.
You yield fruit in its season and your leaf does not wither.
And in whatever you do, you prosper.

Blessing Over Daughters

May Yahweh bless you like Sarah and Rebecca;
Like Rachel and Leah, and Miriam the mother of Yeshua.
And may you find favor in the eyes of Yahweh all the days of your life.

Blessing Over Sons

May Yahweh bless you like Ephraim and Manasseh.
And may you find favor in the eyes of Yahweh all the days of your life.

Aaronic Blessing Over The Whole Family/Congregation

May Yahweh bless you and keep you;
May Yahweh make His face to shine upon you
and be gracious to you;
May Yahweh lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace;
In the name of Yeshua the Messiah, the Prince of peace – Amen.
