The word "bless" is used quite a bit. From a closing salutation or valediction at the end of a letter to a response to a sneeze. What are we really saying when we say "God Bless You"? Blessing refers to "To Make Holy". "To Invoke Define Favor". "To Ask God For Care". I think we would all rather be blessed than cursed. We would much rather have "favor" with God then receive His wrath.
Lord, thank you for caring for me and showing favor for me.
