I Bless You

22 Jul

I bless you with joy and laughter!

“.. not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.” (1 Peter 3:9)

In October 2004, I visited the Focus on the Family headquarters in Colorado Springs for the annual National Day of Prayer (NDP) Task Force meeting. Before I left to come home, Nancy Sharman, the State Coordinator for Virginia Chapter of the NDP, gave me a CD as a gift.

About 1-2 months later, I found the CD in my leather bag, not knowing whether it was a CD or DVD, what it had on it, or who gave it to me. The CD simply stated “I Bless You – Randy.” I put the disk in my computer and discovered it was a CD with a single song called “I Bless You.” Because my computer CD player happened to be set to repeat mode, I ended up listening to this song many times and wrote down the lyrics.

It took me several weeks to find out who gave me the CD. I then learned that Dennis Jernigan wrote the song “I Bless You” and sang it with a lady. A google search led me to www.dennisjernigan.com. There I read Dennis Jernigan’s amazing personal testimony of how he was delivered from a homosexual lifestyle through the power of Jesus Christ. He now has 9 children and has written the theme songs for the National Day of Prayer for 2-3 years in a row.

The song “I Bless You” has become a favorite of mine and our Pray Culpeper team. It is now the theme song for my “A Life of Blessing” ministry.

Would you like to be blessed?
Then read and receive the blessing below under Prayer Power!

I BLESS YOU! (Lyrics from Dennis Jernigan’s song)

I bless you with joy and peace and love that won’t let go.
I bless you with grace and faith and fire in your soul.
I bless you with dreams and visions most men don’t know.
I bless you with deeper knowledge of the Father’s love.

I bless you with joy and laughter.
I bless you with a steadfast faith.
I bless you with the hopes and the dreams that your heart goes after.
I bless you with amazing grace.

I bless you with the heart of a warrior, grace to stand and fight.
I bless you with brothers who will stand right by your side.
And I bless you with courage till the battles have been won.
I bless you with the faith to hear your Father say “Well done! Well done!”

There is tremendous power in a testimony. “And they overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” – Revelations 12:11
