Prayers are the best gifts for a friend having a birthday; friends who bring you closer to the LORD are the best kinds of friends. You are here because you want to offer a prayer to a dear friend of yours who is celebrating a birthday, and you want God involved in it. Praise be to God for a friend like you!
There are many ways to say a birthday prayer for a dear friend, but the best kind of prayer you can offer is praying the Scriptures. Here is an example:
Heavenly Father, I thank You for the life of my dear friend, who is celebrating another year of his life. May You continue to bless the works of his hands and may Your countenance be upon him in all things that he does. May his light shine bright so that the people around him may know You in Christ Jesus’ name. Amen.
The above is a prayer based on Psalm 90:17, “And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it” and Matthew 5:16, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
We know how God’s Word is more powerful than our own words. And sometimes, we want to pray for our loved ones with all kinds of wishes that may not be the will of God for that person. If you want your prayer to be powerful and effective for your beloved friend’s birthday, you may pray the Scriptures and declare the will of God. There are many promises in the Bible, but you only need to allow the Holy Spirit to lead you to be timely for your friend.

How do you wish your best friend a happy birthday long distance?
