I said a Prayer for You Today
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!
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
In all things great and small.
But it was for his loving care
I prayed the most of all!
A Birthday Prayer
These are the things I pray for you for the coming year.
I pray you'll know more joy than sorrow.
I pray your laughter will ring through
the heavens and draw others to you.
I pray you'll seek after God with your whole heart
and let Him guide your choices.
I pray you'll find joy even on the days when there
seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel.
I pray you'll be healthy, and
your body will continue to grow strong.
I pray nothing will ever crush your feisty spirit.
I pray you'll use your talents to lead others well.
I pray that when obstacles appear in your path,
you'll have enough determination
to not let them stop you.
I pray that the year will hold plenty of surprises that
will both bring you joy and teach you new things.
I pray that you never stop learning.
I pray that you never stop smiling.
I pray that your friendships will grow deeper and
that you'll find those friends who
will stick by your side no matter what.
I pray that you'll be open to
accepting direction and wisdom
from those who have walked the road before you.
I pray that when you have tough days,
you'll always know that God loves you and so do we.
