The Blessing: Australia

71

More than 100 virtual choirs from nations and cities around the world have produced a phenomenon known as “The Blessing.”

The Citizen will post these multi-national and multi-lingual versions on a regular basis, most based on Numbers 6:24–26:

THE LORD BLESS YOU
AND KEEP YOU;
THE LORD MAKE HIS FACE SHINE ON YOU
AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU;
THE LORD TURN HIS FACE TOWARD YOU
AND GIVE YOU PEACE.

For the story behind “The Blessing,” read the article in Christianity Today.

From the YouTube description:

During this time of uncertainty and physical isolation, over 300 local churches united together in Australia to sing a blessing over our nation. This is the first time this has happened. You can find a full list of all churches across who sent in a submission here, we honour every one. https://theblessingaustralia.com/chur… Our desire is to shine the light of Jesus in a time of darkness. We hope that this song will fill you with peace and encouragement. We pray it blesses you, your children and your children’s children. If you’ve got questions about life or faith, why not attend or get in contact with a local church near you. Our buildings may have been closed but the church is still very much alive! https://australianchurches.net Otherwise try an online Alpha Course. ‘Ask anything. Seriously.
