A collection of religious birthday blessings to encourage, uplift, and speak God’s blessing on a loved one’s birthday. Great for anyone in the family or a friend.
Why send a birthday wish when you can send a birthday blessing! A little while ago a made a post of some of my favorite Bible Verses to use for Birthdays and Birthday prayers. You can check those out as well!
I am a big fan of birthdays. I think it’s a great way to celebrate someone you love and make lasting memories. One of the ways we can do that is by sending a card, letter, gift with a message that will bless them.
As a Christian, I love it when people speak a blessing or send me a blessing on my birthday. It really encourages and makes me want to draw closer to God. Plus, if you have study the word of God you know that blessing someone is a very powerful spiritual act!
So, my hope is that this little collection of blessings will hit the mark for your loved ones’ birthday.
Just like I have done in my other posts here is a table of content to help you navigate through the blessings. But I encourage you to just scroll through as a lot of these can be changed up to fit for your mom, dad wife, husband, son, daughter, or friend.
I do want to encourage you to let the Holy Spirit guide you as you look through these blessing and also be open to Him redirecting you writing or speaking your own blessing over the birthday person!
