Best Birthday Prayers and Blessings For A One-Year-Old

Dear little one, may God provide as many blessings for the rest of your life as he did in this miraculous first year of your life. I am honored that He chose me to be your parent. 

Since you’re too young to understand, instead of just wishing you a happy birthday, I pray a happy birthday prayer over you. That you continue to grow strong. That you learn how much Jesus loves you al the days of your life and beyond. That the joy of the Lord continues to radiate through you. That God’s blessings overwhelm you, and you use them to share the light with the rest of the world. Amen.

Oh baby girl, as you stare at the world with wonder, you have no idea just how loved you are. May each wonderful birthday you have remind you of how much we all love you.

I know we serve an almighty God because we made it to this day. So thankful for everything you and everything God has given us! 

Lord, thank you for these 365 days. May I cherish the next 365 days being her mom, and each and every day after that, Amen. 

Dear God, I don’t know what I ever did to deserve my sweet little birthday girl, but I’ll thank you every day for her. Amen. 


Birthday Prayers for a NICU Graduate

I always want to include amazing NICU grads! My youngest was born 11 weeks early at 3 lbs 3 oz. and spent 92 days in the NICU. First birthdays bring all sorts of emotions that are hard to sort with. If you need support, please reach out to Praying Through the NICU.

Dear daughter of mine, I’m trying to be brave and pray for more blessings beyond “good health.” I’m just so thankful for a new year with you that I’m still learning how to ask for more beyond you being okay. As we learn to navigate life outside the NICU, I thank Him for the best gift ever- getting us all through that time. May He grant you the desires of your heart, and may all of the NICU life become a faint memory.

As we shower you with birthday wishes today, may we notice the good things more than the bad, and celebrate how far we have come in one short year. We have so much love for you, baby girl!

This day is filled with so many emotions that the rest of the world will never understand, wonderful daughter. This birthday more than anything reminds me just how thankful we are that you are alive today. Have a blessed birthday, today, and with each birthday we get to celebrate the rest of your life.

Heavenly Father, thank you for getting us to this day. We didn’t know if we would make it to this day, and we are so thankful. 

Birthday Prayers and Blessings For a Toddler

Dear sweet daughter, may we appreciate the best things in life- our time together. May we never take a moment together for granted. Keep shining bright, dearest daughter!

Every day’s an adventure with you. May you lead the world someday with the spunkiness that you have now!

Lord, help me embrace today. Help me hold onto each moment, and not take a single moment for granted. Let me never take her for granted. Amen. 

Birthday Prayers & Blessings For a Daughter with special needs

Dear little angel, I hope you have a beautiful birthday! You have no idea how amazing you are and how much you’ve changed my life for the better. Lots of love, beautiful girl! 

Dear God, I never knew how amazing this girl could be. Thank you for showing me more of the world through her eyes. Help me cherish life and enjoy every moment with her.

Lord, on her birthday, help us reflect on how far she has come. Help us count our blessings and appreciate each moment. Amen. 

Birthday Prayers & Blessings For a Little Girl

Dear daughter, it is amazing to see you start to get excited about your special day. I don’t know who is more excited, you or me! It now gets to be your special day, as I watch in the background. But just know, little one, that each year we celebrate I will be praising God for everything that he has blessed us with. Happy Birthday, not-so-little one!

Lord Jesus, Thank you for my lovely daughter. Help me not to take a day for granted with her. Please continue to give her sound health, a wonderful mind, and a great year! 

Birthday Prayers for a Pre-Teen

Hey sweet girl- it’s a new age with new adventures. I hope you have a fantastic birthday celebration, both with your friends and with us. I hope you realize the special gifts you are bringing to the world just by being yourself. Best wishes, beautiful daughter!

Dear Lord, thank you for giving me my almost teenager. Please shower her with birthday blessings each birthday for the long life ahead of her. Amen. 

Birthday Prayers for a Teenager

Dear Lord, thank you for my beautiful daughter. It seems like just yesterday she was my little princess and now she is so grown. Please show her the unconditional love you have shown me in life, and let her know how loved she is. 

To my teenager- keep shining bright. Your light comes from our God who makes no mistakes. He made you the exact way He wanted you to be. When the world is dark, remember to be God’s light. Have a beautiful and wonderful birthday!

Birthday Prayers for a daughter in their  20’s

Dear Daughter, this is a stage of your life that is exciting! I pray that you can live in every moment of it. You only get to be in your 20s once. This is the time to be brave, be bold, and make mistakes- it’s the one decade that it’s the easiest to correct your mistakes and learn and grow the most. May you have nothing but open doors. It is a great joy to watch you learn and grow. 

Dear Lord, the 20s can be hard. Thank you for giving my daughter another wonderful birthday. Help her to find her place in the world, and let it be grounded in you. Amen.

Dear Lord, sometimes I go to talk to a dear friend and realize she’s my daughter. It’s amazing the person she became. Give her a lovely day filled with the Holy Spirit and wonderful days ahead. 

Birthday Prayers for a close friend that is like a daughter to you

Dear Lord, you have shown me everlasting love through friendship that is too strong to just be called “close friends.” Thank you for the precious gift of a bonus daughter. This coming year, I ask that you give her another year of a happy life, with her joy coming from you. Bring her so much joy, as much as she brings me. Amen. 

Dear love, you know you are a daughter to me. I woke up this morning celebrating a brand new year for you. May God shine his light on you and your life, Amen!

Birthday Prayers and Blessings for a daughter that is also a mother

The happiest birthday to the best mother out there! It is amazing to watch you grow as a mom, knowing that you are doing an amazing job. God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). It is amazing to see you live up to all of those things. Keep shining!

Dear Lord, thank you for getting me to the point in life where I get to see my daughter be a mother. Allow me to pour love into her, and provide her a safe place to vent and seek guidance when needed. Allow me to be a listening ear and a support system to her, Amen.

Dear Lord, I am so thankful that you made all the right things happen at the right time for my son to be with her. Thank you for the blessing she was to join our family and the blessing that she IS family now. Amen!

Birthday Prayers for a new step-daughter

Happy Birthday! May God bless this day, along with all the other days that this new year brings. Thank you for blessing my life for the better! 

Dear God, please provide my new stepdaughter with a very happy birthday. Lord, shower her with your goodness. Help our relationship grow ever strong this year.  In Jesus’ name, Amen!
