Blessing by Rev. Saunders for ULC

By W. Steven Saunders
My mom uses an innovative blessing that I've adopted to my ministry. It comes from the Book of Matthew Chapter 18 verse 18, "What so ever we bind on earth is bound in heaven, and what so ever we loose on earth is loosed in heaven." I often pray that God will "bind" sickness, affliction, disaster, etc. and loose his angels, love, and mercy for protection, healing, etc. A blessing using this scripture would be something like:

Something like that. I've always gotten good results when using scripture in prayer, and have found this prayer to be particularly powerful. I believe God pays special attention to his own word and is moved to act when we show him our obedience by observing and acting in congruence with his word.
