“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.

Psalm 139 Birthday Prayer (The Message Bible)

You watched me develop from the moment of conception until birth; you saw me go through all of my life’s stages in front of you, days of my life planned ahead of time.

Let me live with you every morning and be reborn for eternity!

God, help my wife to grow in her love for You first. May she be continually astonished by Your power, beauty, and grace.
