Blessings help us include our faith in events in our lives. Parents are especially encouraged to bless their children. Birthday blessings are one example of this.
This birthday blessing would be appropriate for a parent or godparent to offer to a child on their special day. Give your child more than a cake and presents. Give them this special blessing.
The prayer below is with male pronouns, so substitute female pronouns for a girl. Insert the child’s name in the blank space.
Birthday Blessing for a Child
Lord Jesus, we know you love children.
You said “Let the children come to me”.
Bless ______ on his birthday,
and help him to be to grow
in you as he grows in size.
And we ask that you bless us all, Lord Jesus,
as we celebrate on this special day together.
