Prayer for Birthday

Dear Heavenly Father,

I come to You today with a grateful and humble heart, giving You thanks for the gift of life and for bringing me to see another year. I am amazed by Your love and grace, and I am so blessed to have You as my Savior and Lord.

As I celebrate my birthday, I ask for Your continued guidance and direction in my life. Help me to seek Your will and to trust in Your plan for my future. May Your word be a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path, and may I always strive to honor You in all that I do.

I pray that You would bless me with Your peace and joy, and that I may use my talents and abilities to serve others and bring glory to Your name. May I always remember that every day is a gift from You, and may I use each day to the fullest, loving and serving those around me.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
