And His guardian angels shall never depart from me.

And temptation will never take me unawares,
I will not be given more than I can bear,
And when I call on God, steadily he will be there!

I shall go forth in God’s name,
As my daily labour, I pursue.
I shall be hidden by God’s loving frame,
And His blessings shall He send on me like the morning dew.

God shall crown all my efforts with Success,
And all my daily struggles with testimonies.
I shall find favour where others lobby,
And His grace will be sure for me
Where ever I have no connection.

Shall begin to look up unto me.
And all that I have lost,
I shall regain them back.

So shall it be on the occasion of my birthday and forever.

When I lift up my head, even unto the hills,
When I look down, through the valleys low…
When helpless, in search for someone to help
Let my help come from You, my Lord and maker,
The creator of heaven and earth.
Happy birthday to me.

In You, I want to live, move and forever have my being.
In You, I want to rest and find help in times of need.

And by you, I want to walk through all life’s challenges.
Help me, dear Lord, to become all you have made me to.
Help me to celebrate every birthday in your love. Amen.

100. To a Faithful God

All of my life, I’ve never known you to fail because You are the same wonderful God I’ve known from my mother’s womb.
In all the years I’ve been to and fro this planet earth, you have not stopped being a dear Father and friend to me.
So I have come with a heart of gratitude, saying I will be yours as long as I live. Thank you, Lord, for another year.

101. Thank You for Everything

My dear father and friend, I have come to say thank you for the gift of life and for adding another wonderful year to my age. And according to your word, Lord I have come to ask that you continue to be my guide, protector, defence, confidant, provider, saviour, redeemer and my all.
Thank you for the answered prayers. Happy birthday from you to me.

102. Forever, I Will Wait on You

From now on, I will wait on you. In times of need, I will seek your face, your face alone.
When darkness would come, I’ll run to your light, and when perplexed, I’ll run to you for refuge.
In my weary moments, Lord let me find you near; and when all help seems gone, let me see you as my reward.
Lord, help me to solely look unto you for help and no matter what comes my way, help me to praise your name.
This and much more I ask, dear Lord, even as I celebrate another birthday in your grace and loving-kindness.

103. I Ask for Blessings

Lord, I have come again to ask for your blessings, wisdom and all that your love can do. Help me to continue to live the life that pleases you and be the person you have created me to be.
To all my family, friends and loved ones, help me be a sure source of joy, merriment and help in times of need.
Help me to follow you daily, doing all things as you would always want me to. In Jesus name, Amen.
Once again, thank you for sparing my life to see another birthday in sound health. I love you, Lord.

104. Never Let Me Go, Lord

As you’ve done from ages past, Lord, continue to draw me closer to you and never let me go.
Since it’s another year that you have made, I lay my life down again, as an expression of gratitude.
I have come to seek refuge and solace in you, my strength, song and friend, for no one’s help would ever do.
Yes, here I have asking you to take your place inside of me, filling me with all of you.
And when the trials and temptations of the world would come at me, help me to stay tuned to you.
Yes, you are all I ever wanted and needed and that you will continue to be.
Happy birthday to me from you, Lord.

105. I Will Bless You, Lord

To the Lord who is rich in love
And to Him that’s slow to anger
The one whose name is ever great
And who has got a kind heart
For all Your goodness, Lord
For another year of your kindness toward me
For thousands of ways to prove your love for me…
My soul will continually bless you, Lord
My Spirit will worship your Holy Name, forever
My mouth will sing of your love like never before
And I will tell of your endless love for me.

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

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
And friends to share your way!
I asked for happiness for you
In all things great and small.
But it was for his loving care
I prayed the most of all!

Prayer for a Newborn Baby’s Birthday

Lets not forget the most important birthday of all. A baby’s first!

God bless this perfect little one,
Keep him safe and sound.
Bless his tiny hands and feet,
so he may conquer and defeat.
Brighten up his spiritual eyes,
so that he may undoubtedly become wise.
Bless his cute little mouth,
So your name he can shout.
But most of all bless his little mind,
to stay heavenly divine.
Oh! And don’t forget to bless his parents too
For the big job they got to do.
