Blessing: Isaiah 43: 1-5


Here’s a blessing or benediction from Isaiah 43.

Benediction
(based on Isaiah 43: 1-3, 5)

Do not be afraid, for I have redeemed you.
I have called you by name—you are mine!

When you go through deep waters and great trouble,
I will be with you.

When you go through rivers of difficulty,
you will not drown!

When you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned up;
the flames will not consume you.

For I am the Lord, your God,
the Holy One of Israel.
Do not be afraid, for I am with you.
