last night was my wonderful husband's birthday and we celebrated with cramming 50 friends and family (includes the children) into our little 1100 square foot house for dessert and fellowship. we took a time to pray over my husband and bless his upcoming year. this morning, while i was reading the bible, i found what would have been the perfect blessing to pray over him for this year in psalm 20. it is a psalm of david, but it reminded me so much of the irish blessings that are on greeting cards. it is perfect to pray over a friend who is celebrating a birthday and entering a new year or season, and completely a scriptural way to prophesy over his/her life.
so take the as a blessing for you day. be blessed!

for joyname of our God we will set up our banners. may the LORD fulfill all your petitions. over your victory, and in the
now i know that the LORD saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand.
some boast in chariots and some in horses, but we will boast in the name of the LORD, our God.
they have bowed down and fallen, but we have risen and stood upright.
save, O LORD; may the King answer us in the day we call.
