Heavenly Father,

I want to say “Happy Birthday” to everyone who is celebrating their birthday today. Thank you for creating them, and for calling them by name. I give you praise for the day of their birth, for bringing them into this world, and for expressing your great love to them.

On this special day, may you bless them with your favor. You know the plans you have for them, plans to prosper them, and not to hurt them, plans to give them a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11). Give them your wisdom to guide their days, and add years to their life (Proverbs 9:11). Make known to them Your path of life, fill them with the joy of Your presence, and the eternal pleasures at Your right hand (Psalm 16:11).

May they take delight in the LORD, so that you can give them the desires of their heart (Psalm 37:4).  May they recognize that the LORD their God is with them, the mighty Warrior who saves. You will take great delight in them, in your love you will no longer rebuke them, but you will rejoice over them with singing (Zephaniah 3:17).

May the LORD bless them and keep them; the LORD make His face shine upon them, and be gracious to them; the LORD turn His face toward them and give them His peace (Number 6:24-26).

Amen.

(Have a wonderful birthday, and enjoy your special day with the LORD’S blessings!)
