Prayers for your birthday

Prayer of gratitude

Father God, may we always begin in gratitude. I Thank you that I am another year older. Thank you for the gift that each new day is. Thank you for all the blessings that I have received, and for all the ways that I have seen you at work in my life. I know that you have walked alongside me. You have been there through every celebration, every success. And you have been there through every failure and every sadness. You do not promise an easy life, but you have provided your comfort, strength and love to see me through every obstacle that this world brings. Amen.

Prayer for wisdom

Generous God, as we grow older may we also grow in wisdom. I pray that as I go through life, I will learn from my experiences, and always seek to become wiser, more knowledgeable and more informed. Help me to see the truth in the midst of confusion and to discern right from wrong. Over this coming year, I pray that I will learn new things, meet new people, hear new perspectives, and experience new adventures. May they help me to grow in knowledge, but also in compassion, humility and grace. Amen.

Prayer for health and protection

Creator God, you knit me together in my mothers womb. You know every part of me, and the changes that this new year will bring. I pray for my health this year, that you will protect me from illness and injury. Bring healing where there is sickness, and comfort through any challenges I need to face. Help me to look after my mind and body this year, in the ways that are healthy for me and as a good steward of the body you created for me. Amen.

Prayer for purpose

Good, good God, you created me with a purpose, and I pray that you will use me this year to bring you glory, to bless other people, and to do your will hear on earth. Direct me, guide me, help me. Give me the strength to go where you lead me and the boldness to share your love with those around me. May I draw closer to you this year, through prayer, through reading your word, through worship and service. Set me on fire with love for you, and a joy that shines into the world. Amen.
