This Christian birthday prayer is a beautiful poem that you could share with family or a close friend on their birthday.
I said a prayer for you today
And know God must have heard.
I felt the answer in my heart,
Although He spoke no word.
I didn’t ask for wealth or fame,
I knew you wouldn’t mind.
I asked Him to send treasures
Of a far more lasting kind.
I asked that He be near you
At the start of each new day
To grant you health and blessings
And friends to share your way.
I asked for happiness for you
In all things, great and small,
But it was for His loving care
I prayed for most of all.
