Today is our son's birthday. In honor of his special day, here are the verses that have been prayed over him his whole life:  

May the Lord bless his land

    with the precious dew from heaven above

    and with the deep waters that lie below;

with the best the sun brings forth

    and the finest the moon can yield; 

with the choicest gifts of the ancient mountains

    and the fruitfulness of the everlasting hills;

with the best gifts of the earth and its fullness

    and the favor of him who dwelt in the burning bush.

Let all these rest on the head of Joseph,

    on the brow of the prince among his brothers.


There is no one like the God of Jeshurun,

    who rides across the heavens to help you

    and on the clouds in his majesty.

The eternal God is your refuge,

    and underneath are the everlasting arms.

He will drive out your enemies before you,

    saying, ‘Destroy them!’

So Israel will live in safety;

    Jacob will dwell secure

in a land of grain and new wine,

    where the heavens drop dew.

Blessed are you, Israel!

    Who is like you,

    a people saved by the Lord?

He is your shield and helper

    and your glorious sword.

Deuteronomy 33:13-16, 26-28
