How Do I Pray for Someone on Their Birthday?

First of all, while there are many ways to pray for a significant someone, let’s consider how to pray based on the Bible.

Birthday prayers are like birthday blessings. You are not only thanking God for the individual, but you are also asking God to continue to bless them and their lives for years to come.

What an amazing and awesome birthday present!

Birthday Prayer Points

If you start with Birthday prayer points, it will keep you focused on the subject at hand — your Birthday guest!

Prayer Points are like prayer guidelines that direct us on what to include in our prayers. Having direction on what to include helps eliminate the possibility of keeping something important out in our public prayer.

It also helps avoid nervousness so we don’t draw a blank in front of others. The rest of your prayer can come directly from the Spirit as He guides you.

In addition, when we have something written down, we can remember our prayer points easier and use them when needed.

Find some birthday prayer points listed below that you can use for your opening prayer, whether it’s at a Birthday Party or a special gathering with family. 

  • Open the prayer by acknowledging the Lord with one of His special names
  • Thank the Lord for allowing the assembly of loved ones
  • Thank Him for the special Birthday person as you celebrate the gift of life
  • Ask Heavenly Father to oversee his/her protection in the years to come
  • Acknowledge to Him how this person has blessed you in a special way
  • Close the Birthday Prayer in the name of Jesus.

Dear Lord, we are so grateful for our mother, all of the sacrifice, time, and service she has provided for me and our family. We can always count on Mom to be there for a shoulder to cry on, or when we need a hot meal or advice on the countless problems we’ve faced.

Without the Lord providing us with the perfect Mother, we wouldn’t be the person we are today. Amen.

Without Moms, we wouldn’t be the person we are today so we should pray for our mothers every day, including her birthday.
