Prayer on One’s Birthday
Almighty God, today is the anniversary of my birth, the day you allowed me to enter this magnificent world you created. Help me to know that my birth meant something, despite the very ordinariness of my life. Make me realize that you set me on this earth for a reason, and that I must continue to work to carry out your plan. Thank you for creating me and for redeeming me. Teach me the fleetingness of time, and the enduring length of eternity. Help me to remain close to you until my death. Amen.
Given to Sasha on his Birthday in August…found again while cleaning the house, just in time for Sarah’s Birthday this past week. We think it’s a nice prayer and thought we would share!
