Wow ! Birthdays have never really been all that special to me ... it's like okay, why are we celebrating me and another year of life. Everytime I think about my birthday I think about my Mom, the one who carried me in her womb for 9+ months and who has raised me to be the Godly woman I am today (or trying to be). And thank you to the Lord for this birth and his death that has given me eternal life through his sacrifice. For that I celebrate and I am truly grateful :)
Here's a fun little birthday prayer I found :
"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."
