Last updated: January 12, 2023
When it comes to celebrating birthdays, heartfelt birthday wishes are just the beginning. Birthday celebrations bring our friends and loved ones together. We can enjoy birthday picnics and cookouts, various adventures, dancing, singing, and toasting, not to mention delicious slices of cake and twinkling candles. Each year that we grow older (and hopefully wiser), these special days remind us of how far we've come.

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.
