How can I pray for my sister on her birthday?

The best way to pray for your sister is to pray for God’s will to overwhelmingly change her life. 

Dear Lord, no matter what happens in her life this year, may she give thanks in all circumstances, for this is Your will. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

If our prayers align with God’s Word, we cannot go wrong!

Another great way is by asking her! There is nothing sweeter than messaging her and saying, “Hey, I know your birthday is coming up, how can I specifically be praying?”

What is the best message for my sister on her birthday?

We have a whole list of birthday prayers, but we have found that the best ones are the ones from the heart. These prayers are simply guides to help you find the best birthday message for her. 

For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. (Romans 5:5)

I know that can sound cliche though, “praying from the heart.” In reality, this is only good advice if you are on a good path with God. If you are turning your heart to God daily, then praying from the heart simply means praying according to God’s truth He has laid in you.

We want to make sure we pray in agreement with God, especially if we don’t have the best relationship with our sister. We don’t want our hearts to ever trump how God wants us to pray to Him.

How do you write a birthday prayer message?

As we talked about above, if your heart is in a good place, by all means, write from the heart! But I know some people want a simple cut-and-dry method.

So if you are looking at how to write a birthday prayer message, try this method:

  1. Write a one-sentence greeting to her!
  2. Write a one-sentence prayer.
  3. If you cannot come up with a one-sentence prayer, try finding a Bible verse and changing it into a Bible verse. You can’t go wrong using God’s word.
