1 Thessalonians :23-24   May God Himself, the God Who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body—and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ.  The One Who called you is completely dependable.  If He said it, He’ll do it! (The Message)

I like to pray scripture.  Praying the verses in the scripture is a very sure way of saying to God what He wants to hear.  This is a beautiful prayer of blessing.  When I pray it, in pace of the word “you” I insert the name of someone.  There are many scripture verses of blessing we can use to pray over others.  We can also pray them over ourselves.  Remember, when we pray them, to change the words to directly talk to God rather than about Him.  With each passing day we are getting closer to the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ.  We want to be found holy and whole in spirit, soul and body.  He may come before this is posted or He may not come for another thousand years or so.  No one knows.  Our job is to be ready at any time.  We also want others to be ready so let’s pray prayers like this every day.
