“Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you so much for blessing us with life here on earth. We come to you in celebration of another year for_________. As she is getting older, she is getting wiser and more beautiful in your eyes, Lord. Show her the beauty within that the world cannot see.
Lord, light my sister with the beauty of your presence this year. Give her an unshakable faith that will not waver no matter what obstacle is set before her. Give her feet the strength to step over the stumbling blocks, and give her hands the wisdom to reach out and help others in the same situations.
Lord, please bless my sister with a strong sense of hope.
Lord, cover my sister______________ with a double-layer protection of your blood. As she gets older, and wiser in you, she is becoming a true target of the enemy. Give her eyes to see and defend herself in the most Christ-like way possible. This year is the year of STRENGTH for my sister, and she will not let that strength stay with her. She will share the joy of you to others and that will be a gift that will keep giving back to her in return.
Thank you for my sister, Lord. I ask that you bless her and me with many more. Help both of us to touch many lives and bring MILLIONS into your kingdom. We look forward to meeting those on the other side. In the meantime, give us that mantle of humility and fasten it down with the power of your grace so that we will not stumble in pride and self-righteousness.
Thank you so much for your love. We love you, and pray to love you more each day! In Jesus’ precious name, for __________’s birthday, Amen.”
