A Blessing by
The Rev. Peter Ingeman
In the name of the Father, and of the
Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
All that God has created and sustains,
all the events He guides, and all human works that are good and have
good purpose, prompt those who believe to praise and bless the Lord with
hearts, hands, and voices.
He is the origin of every blessing. We
proclaim our belief that all things work together for the good of those
who fear and love God. We are sure that in all things we must seek the
help of God, so that in complete reliance on His will we may in Christ
do everything to His glory.
Lord, let your blessing be upon this
[stole] and upon the one who will wear it. Give [her] new life and
strength and spirit so that the power of your love will enable [her] to
accomplish what is right and good.
May God, who is blessed above all,
bless you in all things through Christ so that all things will work
together for good.
And may almighty God bless you, Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit.
