Here’s a prayer of blessing inspired by the tree imagery in Psalm 1.  It was written by Bruce Prewer.

Blessings of the Blessed
(inspired by Psalm 1)

That in the seasons of drought you will consolidate your strength.
I bless you!
   Amen!

That you will delight in the warm sun of God shining upon you.
That you will delight in the cold rain of God falling on you.
I bless you!
   Amen!

That you will blossom to the glory of God
and make the world a more fragrant place.
I bless you!
   Amen!

I bless you!
   Amen!

The grace of.......
