Happy Birthday Prayers
A birthday prayer can be sent in a variety of ways. You could leave the prayer on their social media page, send it through text, write a card or even call and pray over them directly.
However, you choose to deliver this birthday blessing to your loved ones, be sure you have a verse handy. Here is an example of a happy birthday blessing with a prayer that could be sent to anyone.
Dear friend, happy birthday! I pray the Lord will bless you and keep you. I ask the Lord to make his face shine on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Birthday Prayers for Son
When you love a young man and long to see him grow in integrity and godly character, you pray. Birthday prayers for your son can be a beautiful blessing. They give you space to speak into the man you long for him to become.
Precious son, I pray you will be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or tremble at your enemies. The Lord your God is the one who always goes with you. He will not fail you or leave you. I pray you continually look to Him for your strength.
Use this example of a birthday prayer for your son.
Dear God, Thank you for giving me such an amazing son. I pray my son will walk before You in the integrity of his heart and uprightness, doing according to all that You have commanded him. Help him keep Your statutes and ordinances. Your word promises that if he does you will establish him and he will lack nothing good. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Birthday Prayers for Daughter
Just as we long to see our sons grow in godly character, we long to see our daughters mature in wisdom and grace as they walk more closely to the Lord. While boys wrestle with fear and courage, girls often wrestle with identity and self-worth.
That is why I love to pray Psalm 37 and Jeremiah 1:5 over my daughters. These are the birthday prayers for my daughters.
Sweet girl, I pray you will learn to find your delight in the Lord because He promises to give you the desires of your heart. Father, help her trust in You and do good. Grow in her Your goodness so that she can commit her way to You, trust in You and see You do big things.
Dear Father, Thank you for blessing me with such an amazing and loving daughter. Watch over her and bless her on this special day. Reveal to her the calling You placed on her life and give her the boldness to pursue it. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Birthday Prayers for Mom
Our mother is the one God chose to carry us and keep us safe in the womb and guide and mold us once we were delivered into this world. The best way we can bless her on this special day is with a prayer!
Dear Lord, thank You for my mom. I pray that she always knows how cherished and blessed she truly is. As trials come, let her be able to laugh at the days to come. Thank you that she opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. I ask you to shower her with many blessings on her birthday! In Jesus Name, Amen!
Birthday Prayers for Dad
Dad's carry the weight of the world as they go through each day. They work hard to provide for and protect their families. As life comes at them with trials and hardships, it can be a challenge to remember the blessings and successes along the way. Birthday prayers for dad can help remind them of the good things!
Heavenly Father, thank you for giving me such a wonderful earthly dad. Thank you for his leadership and love. I ask you to watch over him and guide him to always lead our family in a Godly way. Fill him with your Holy Spirit and shower him with an abundance of blessings on this special day and beyond. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Birthday Prayers for Wife
A husband should always love and cherish his wife and show her how much he loves her. The best way to show that love and affection is by praying for her! Showering her with God's blessings in the way of a birthday prayer is the best gift she could ever receive!
Here is a great example of a birthday prayer for your wife to speak over her today.

Birthday Prayers for Husband
Husbands, much like fathers, tend to carry much pressure, expectation, and burden on their shoulders. The perfect way to shower them with blessings on this special day is with a Happy Birthday prayer.
It can also be a great time to speak into the man you see God developing in your husband. The enemy would love for him to focus on his failures, but your birthday prayers can show him there is victory.
Father God, thank You for the man you gave me as a husband. Thank you for making his such a loving and caring man. Thank for giving him the ability and talents to always provide for our family. I pray your continued blessings over him today and for all the days after today. In Jesus Name, Amen.
