Sometimes we need a blessing prayer. It may be for ourself or for others who are close to us. It can even be for our community.
A blessing prayer allows us to talk to God about our lives and about our hopes and dreams. After all, we all want to be blessed and God wants to bless us as well.
It’s important to know that God’s blessings surround us every day, and often times we don’t realize it. He gives us each day to enjoy. He allows the sun to rise each day, and He gives us fresh air to breathe. Those simple things are big blessings! (learn the PRAYER acronym for the best prayers).
If you’d like to pray for specific blessing prayers, I’ve provided 10 examples to use. I’ll first share a few tips about how to pray effectively, but remember, you can speak to God any way you’d like and any time of day.
Tips For a Good Blessing Prayer
As I’ve already mentioned, you can speak with God in a variety of ways and it can be through conversation, worship, praise, and singing. In the Bible there are helpful tips on how to pray.
My go-to prayer method is the ACTS prayer (ready my article). It is an acronym for:
If you use this method, it will help organize your thoughts and present your conversation to God in a respectful way. Many people do this prayer automatically because it was taught to us as children, however, if you’re new to praying feel free to use this method to improve your prayers (here’s my long list of things to pray for).
God hears all prayers but in a prayer for blessings, we should also praise and exalt Him.

A blessing prayer is a wonderful reason to come before God. We all want blessings in our life and sometimes it’s just a matter of recognizing all the amazing things God has done.
Our prayers are important to God and there is not one correct way to speak to him. You can talk to him in conversation and song, while you are home or while you are driving.
Always remember that we should approach God with reverence. Appreciate him and acknowledge his wonder.
Thank him before we ask for things, just as you would talk to a friend before you begin asking for things.
God blesses us each day, even when we don’t ask for it. But it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t ask for his blessings. Good communication with God brings us closer to him. Pray a prayer of blessing and thank him!
