The LORD said to Moses,”Say to Aaron and his sons, Thus you shall bless the people of Israel: you shall say to them,

The LORD bless you and keep you:
The LORD make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you:
The LORD lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.

“So shall they put my name upon the people of Israel, and I will bless them.”  (Numbers 6:22-27)

The Book of Numbers is filled with the laws of the Lord, and stories of the Jewish people as they wander in the desert for 40 years.  Hidden away in this book of the Torah is a beautiful prayer.  Think about this for a moment, this prayer is one that God himself wants his Priests to bless the people with. It is a holy prayer that we can bless each other with.
