A Birthday Prayer for someone in your life:
Dear Lord, on this day that we celebrate “insert name”’s birth, I pray for blessings and joy over “insert name”. You knew everything about “insert name” before her birth and You have a plan of prosperity and hope for her life! Let her feel confident and ready for the year ahead knowing that You have an order to her steps and a purpose for her life. Help her to find joy in every circumstance in life, knowing that You work all things out for good. I thank You for “insert name”, for loving her with unconditional love, and for the promises You have spoken over her life. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Irish Blessing (great for encouraging friends and family on their birthday!)
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm on your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
May God be with you and bless you,
May you see your children’s children.
May you be poor misfortune,
Rich in blessings,
May you know nothing but happiness From this day forward.
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind always be at your back,
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home,
And may the hand of a friend always be near.
May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the sky above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hears that love you.
Psalm 139 Birthday Prayer (The Message Bible)
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, the days of my life all prepared before I’ve even lived one day. Your Thoughts – how rare, how beautiful! God, I’ll never comprehend them! I couldn’t even begin to count them – any more than I could count the sand of the sea. Oh, let me rise in the morning and live always with you!

I said a prayer for you today
And know God must have heard.
I felt the answer in my heart
Although he spoke no word!
I didn’t ask for wealth or fame
(I knew you wouldn’t mind).
I asked him to send treasures
Of a far more lasting kind!
I asked that he be near you
At the start of each new day;
To grant you health and blessings

In all things great and small.

I prayed the most of all!

Brighten up his spiritual eyes,

Bless his cute little mouth,
So your name he can shout.
But most of all bless his little mind,

Oh! And don’t forget to bless his parents too
For the big job they got to do.
