Concrete Wall Bricks and Sprinklers

I have a small garden wall I made with concrete wall blocks. Will it harm them if the sprinklers hit the blocks directly?

I'm not talking about drainage problems, just the blocks themselves.

No, water will not really harm the cement blocks. Some mortars will degrade over time if exposed to a lot of water but that will take a really long time. The big thing you'll probably notice is staining. You might get mineral deposits on the wall or algae growth from it staying wet.

Awesome, thank you. I will strive to keep the water off, but I won't lose any sleep over it.
