“Happy Birthday to You” Prayer
Another year of life upon this earth:

I hope that you have used it full and well.
And yet another starting now, today:
Perhaps you should rededicate your life,
And give it to the Lord, who gave you yours.
For all that went before has passed behind;
Your future lies before you like a road.
And so I pray the Lord will be with you,
And dwell with you, and keep you as His own,
And walk with you, beside you, down the road.
And now I pray that He will make today
The finest birthday that you ever had.

Traditional Irish Birthday 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.

Prophetic Birthday Prayers

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!

Birthday Prayers for My Wife
Thank you, Father, for the gift of my wife. You are the giver of all good and perfect blessings, and I’m amazed how You show Your love through her. Please help me to cherish such an amazing gift. Each day, circumstances and frustrations can easily steal the joy from __. Please keep her from letting these challenges turn her focus from You, the author of her faith.

Give my wife the joy that Jesus had as He accomplished the Father’s will on earth. May she consider each struggle as a reason to find hope in You. When she feels tired, Lord, renew her strength. Surround her with friends who love You and will bear her burdens. Give her reason to feel refreshed by their encouragement. May she know that the joy of the Lord is the source of her strength. Protect her from growing tired of doing what You’ve called her to do each day.

God, help __ to grow first in her love for You. May she be increasingly in awe of Your power, beauty, and grace. May my wife know more each day about the depth and width of Your love and respond with increasing love of her own. Help her to love me through all my failures while I learn to love her as Christ loves the church. May we see each other as You see us, and may we enjoy fulfilling each other’s desires in our marriage. (excerpts from Prayers for Your Wife, John Upchurch)

Birthday Prayers for My Husband
Lord, with Your Word as my husband’s source of wisdom, I will rest secure in his leadership of our home. I trust Your Word to fill __ with the insight he will need for our relationship, his work, and so much more. Your Word will unite his heart to Yours. His oneness with You will lead his pursuit of oneness with me. Your ways will become His ways.

God, Send my husband an abundance of confidants whose faith in You is bold and courageous. Let them be men who do not lean on their own understanding, but always acknowledge You and Your Word.

This birthday prayer is a beautiful poem that you could share with a dear friend or family member on their birthday.

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 for most of all.
