A Blessing for Baby from Cynthia Webb Designs

One of the more unique gift ideas that has emerged over the past year for babies is the Blessing Wall Plaque.  This handsome pewter plaque has been cast in the form of a mezuzah and is intented to be attached to the door post of a child’s bedroom or simply on the wall beside the door.

This Blessing Wall Plaque is not an actual mezuzah, as it does not fulfill the ‘intent’ of a mezuzah.  But it has been crafted in the image of one and does loosely fulfill the proclamation in Deuteronomy 11:18-21…

Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.  Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.  Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land that the LORD swore to give your forefathers, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.

This pewter wall plaque is a very special gift for a family and a child in that it provides a blessing for the child’s room.  It is a lovely way to remind all those who dwell in the home of their responsibility to lift the child up in prayer. 

This plaque has been cast in lead-free pewter from a wax original hand-carved by artist Cynthia Webb, it arrives with a ribbon for hanging from a wall, doorknob, or bedpost.  Better yet, mount it to the wall; screws are included. There’s space at the back to tuck your own special note or prayer.  Choose one from below.  Approx 5″ long.  Pewter Wall Plaques that are available include: Child’s Room Blessing, House Blessing, Unseen Guest, Sleep in Peace.

Scriptures to write on a small piece of paper and tuck under the plaque.  Also perfect for praying over a child!   Taken from the J12 Website http://www.j12.com/parents/   

I highly recommend this website for those who see parenting as a divinely inspired profession and believe that the words that we speak over our children will have a direct influence on their future!

  • Ephesians 1:17-19 Lord, give our children the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, and the knowledge of You. That the eyes of their hearts be enlightened that they will know the hope to which you have called them, the riches of Your glorious inheritance in the saints and His Incomparably great power for us who believe.
  • Ephesians 3: 17-19 These children are rooted and established in love; we pray that they may have power with all the saints to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ towards them, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge, that they may be filled to the measure of the fullness of God.
  • Ephesians 5:1 and 21 Our children will be imitators of God and live a life of love. They will submit to others out of reverence to Christ.
  • Ephesians 6:1,2 Our children will obey their parents in the Lord. They will honor their father and mother so that it may go well with them and that they may enjoy long life on earth.
  • 1 Timothy 4:12 No one will look down on our children because they are young, but they set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in faith and in purity.
  • Psalm 103:2-5 Thank you Lord that our children won’t forget His benefits. You forgive all their sins and heal all their diseases. You redeem their lives form the pit, and crown them with love and compassion. You satisfy their souls with good things so that their youth is renewed like the eagles.
  • Psalm 1:1-3 Our children do not walk in the counsel of the ungodly or stand in the path of sinners or sit in the seat of scoffers. But their delight is in the law of the Lord and on His law they meditate day and night. They are like the trees planted by the rivers of water, which yield their fruit in season and whose leaf will not whither, and whatever they do prospers.
  • Psalm 119:18 Our children seek You with all their hearts; they will not stray from Your commands; they have hidden Your word in their hearts that they may not sin against you.
  • Psalm 91:9-16 Our children have made the Most High their dwelling place. No harm will befall them; no disaster will come near their tents. For He will give His angles charge over them to guard them in all their ways. They will carry them so that our children do not dash their foot against a stone. They will tread upon the lion and the cobra; they will trample them underfoot. Because our children love You, You will deliver them, You will set them on high. They will call upon You and You will answer them, You will be with them in trouble, You will deliver them and honor them and with long life You will satisfy them and show them Your salvation.
  • Acts 1:8, 2:38 Our children will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. They will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon them.
  • Joel 2:28 Thank you Lord that it will come to pass that You will pour out Your Spirit on our children; our sons and daughters shall prophesy, dream dreams, and see visions.
  • 1 John 4:4 Greater is He that is in our children the he that is in the world.
  • Isaiah 24:13.14 and 17 All our children shall be taught by the Lord and great will be their peace, their health, safety, protection and prosperity. In righteousness they will be established. Tyranny will be far from them; they will have nothing to fear. Terror will be far removed; it will not come near them. No weapon formed against them will prosper.
  • Mark 4:20 The hearts of our children are like good soil, they hear the word, accept it and produce a crop….100 times that which was sown.
  • 2 Timothy 2:22 Our children flee the evil desires of their youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

  1. […]  The Room Blessings Plaques continue to be a VERY popular item in our store.  To hang on a wall, doorpost, above a bed, by a light switch… anywhere a special reminder or blessing is appropriate.   This has been adapted from the wonderful tradition of Mezuzahs, in which a blessing (the Mesusah) is placed on each doorpost and gate in a home. The traditional Jewish Mezuzah cover requires a small parchment inscribed with specific prayers.  This design can be used as a Mezuzah cover, or to simply serve as a reminder of our many blessings.  See our most recent discussion of the Room Blessings Plaques… A Blessing for Baby.
