Bless, Blessed, Blessing 

To confer divine favor upon someone. Anything contributing to true happiness, well-being, or prosperity is a blessing.

All blessings are based on eternal laws (D&C 130:20–21). Because God wants His children to find joy in life (2 Ne. 2:25), He grants blessings to them as a result of their obedience to His commandments (D&C 82:10), in answer to a prayer or priesthood ordinance (D&C 19:38; 107:65–67), or through His grace (2 Ne. 25:23).

A well-known list of statements about blessedness is the Beatitudes (Matt. 5:1–12; 3 Ne. 12:1–12).
