Dear Father, thank You for this special day that You chose to be the birthday of this dear child. Lord, You scheduled every day of his life from before he was born and have watched over him. Oh Lord, how we rejoice to see him growing up day by day and reaching another milestone in his young life.
Watch over him I pray, and look down on him with Your love and favour. And Lord, I ask that as he faces a new year with new opportunities and challenges, that You would enable him to grow in wisdom and favour with God and men, as he learns to trust in You with each passing day.
Bless him Lord, and guide him. Draw him into true saving faith in Christ Jesus. Protect him from all harm and danger, watch over him each day of his life, both at home and at school, and lead him into all truth. In Jesus' name I pray,
