Birthday prayers....

Prayer for my own Birthday

Lord, let this feast of my birth be a reminder to me of all the gifts and blessings I have received from You this day and all the days of my life. On my day of celebration, I thank you for my life and all of my blessings and ask for another year filled with Your presence in my life that I may continue to grow in your love.

Gracious God, I thank You for enabling me to celebrate my birthday. Lord You have been good to me all these years and I thank You for all the blessings I have recieved but especially for life itself.

Creator God, I do not know what lies ahead for me this year. Yet I know that You are holding my future in Your hand. Let my ways be pleasing to you. As You have promised, be with me, Lord. Grid me with Your strength and grace so that I can live for Your light. Enable me to draw closer to You that I may walk in your peace and be the creative and loving person that you intend for me to be. I ask this and all things in the sure and certain knowledge of your love for me and for all your people. Amen.

A Birthday Prayer

If I were to offer a prayer today,
And I knew that the powers that be
Would grant all the blessings for which I should pray
Most freely unto me,

I would pray that I might in true wisdom and power
Increase as the days go past,
And be able to do some good deed every hour
That I could not have done in the last.

If the fibre still holds in my life's slender cord
Thru another short year, may I say
I have cherished the good and all evil abhorred,
When I read this a year from today.
