A father’s blessing:
Lord, I come before You today to call down a blessing on my son and my daughter.
I thank You for blessing me with this son and daughter. I know that they are a gift from You to me and their mother — but that ultimately they belong to You and You love them far more than I ever could. But today I come before You in my position as the spiritual head of this home, to seek Your blessing on them and to impart my blessing upon them.
My son, my precious son, I am so proud of the person you are becoming. You are so special to me, and I know God has a marvelous plan for your life.
So as your earthly father, I speak a blessing over you. By faith, I call into being those things which are not yet seen. By faith, I call forth all that God has gifted you with and called you to be and to do.
By faith, I speak peace and prosperity into your life. By faith, I claim divine protection over you and divine provision for you all the days of your life.
My daughter, my beautiful, lovely daughter. You are precious in God’s eyes and precious to me. You are such a delight and joy to me. I am so grateful that God brought you into my life, but I know He has an even greater purpose for your life.
So as your earthly father, I speak a special blessing over you tonight. By faith, I call forth all the potential that God has placed in you and all the promises and plans He had for you from the time you were in your mother’s womb.
By faith, I claim – and proclaim – the peace of God in your life, the love of God to you and through you, and the protection of Almighty God upon you all the days of your life.
Though you will always be my precious little girl, I release you into the care of Your heavenly father and into His plans and purposes for your life.
Father God, take my dear son and my precious daughter and lead them on the unique paths You have laid out for them. Bless them and protect them until they see you face to face. In Jesus’ name, amen.
A mother’s blessing
Father God, I come before You tonight to call down a blessing on my son and my daughter.
I thank You for entrusting these precious treasures to me and for giving me the opportunity to provide them with nurture, comfort and teaching in their formative years.
Though they will always have a special place in my heart, I know they belong to You and that You have plans for them that are so much greater than what I could ever imagine.
And so, I come before You tonday in my God-given position as their mother to seek Your blessing on them and to impart my blessing upon them as well. Father God, from my mother’s heart I cry out to You on behalf of my son and daughter.
My son, my precious son. I am so proud of the man you are becoming, and I can’t wait to see all that God is going to accomplish, in you and through you. You are a special person, a one-of-a-kind, and I know you’re going to change the world.
And so, as your earthly mother, I speak a special blessing over you tonight. By faith, I call forth a mighty enabling and a mighty anointing in your life.
By faith, I call forth physical strength, strength of character, Godly wisdom and Godly direction in all your pursuits. By faith, I speak success and prosperity into your life. May all that your hand touches be blessed of the Lord.
Though a part of me will always see you as my little boy, I want more than anything to see you as a mighty man of God. And so I release you into the will of God, and the hands of God. Go forth and do great exploits for the Lord.
My daughter, my darling daughter. You have been my joy and my delight. I have loved being your mother, and now I hope that I can be your friend for the rest of your life. Though I love you with all my heart, I can never be a friend to you like Jesus. I know He has a marvelous plan for your life.
But as your earthly mother, I will never stop praying for you and praying blessings over you. And so as your mother, I speak a special blessing over you tonight.
By faith, I call forth all the plans and promises of God for your life. May you become the mighty woman of God that He has called you and gifted you to be. May you delight His heart as you have brought delight to me.
May you continually know the peace of God in your heart and the power of God in your life. May you sow peace in the lives of others. May you always know the prosperity and provision of Jehovah Jireh, the Lord our provider. Go forth, my daughter, and make a difference in this world.
Father God, I release my precious son and my darling daughter into Your loving hands. Post Your mighty guardian angels around them. Keep them safe from physical harm and safe from the evil one.
Oh God, bless my son and daughter. In Jesus’ name, amen.
