The following mantra has proved especially useful in soul care or pastoral ministry in addition to its value in corporate worship. The content of the mantra is taken from Galatians 5:22-23 and constitutes a prayer of God’s blessing of another person. I have used this mantra in various situations such as in prayer for healing, birthday blessings, blessings for travel, and especially during festivals.
