Birthday Prayer For My Son

It feels so great to have your son celebrate his birthday. It’s such a great feeling that a son is growing. He is gradually becoming a man. Remember when he just came out that he couldn’t do anything for himself. Now he is becoming a voice. Even if he is just a boy, seeing your boy grow comes with so much joy and enthusiasm that a copy of you is finding expression and is growing in the land of the living.

As he crosses into another year, it is a good thing to celebrate with him with some prayers. And as the spiritual oversight over your son, you have the power to dictate what happens in your son’s life. Apart from morning blessings for your son, a special day like his birthday should be an opportunity to bless him from the depth of your heart. This prayer will mean a lot to your son too. At least that you care about his well-being and future.


Before you begin to bless your son with prayers, it is important to thank God for the journey so far because it can only be God. Lamentations 3:22-23 explains that it is the Lord’s mercy that has been helping us so far. We need to appreciate God for that. The verse added that it is new every month. That can only be God. From birth to whatever age he is celebrating is not something that happens just like that. God made it happen. That is where the prayers ought to start!

Prayer must be made to secure his salvation even as you preach to him.
