Birthdays are a special time to celebrate life and give thanks to God for His blessings. Whether you’re celebrating your own birthday or the birthday of a loved one, these short prayers can be a great way to reflect on God’s goodness and ask for His continued blessings.

How To Use These Short Birthday Prayers
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. – Jeremiah 29:11-12 NIV
These short prayers can be useful in many ways during birthday festivities. Here are some good ways to use these prayers:
- Write them out in a birthday card or gift
- Open a birthday party in prayer
- Say a prayer before dinner or a meal
- Have a time where people pray over the birthday boy/girl.
- Share the prayer with them in text message or email
- Write out the prayer on a post it note and leave it somewhere where they will find it
I do want to encourage you as you you go through these prayers. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit as you pick one out and try to make the prayer personal. Add certain things you know about the birthday girl or boy. It’s important that when we pray that it comes from our heart and adding some personal things to a pre-written prayer helps that.
