The Birthday Prayer of Strength

by Mike (Niagara Falls, NY)

I pray Lord for you to give me strength on my birthday, to show me the way you wanted for me. I pray Lord that I will live my life according to you. Let me love instead of hate and let me grow into the man I want to become and not become the man I thought I once wanted to be.

I pray for myself on this day of my birth 23 years ago, I pray for the guidance I know I can see, but sometimes can’t obtain. I pray for my soul to be lifted of all evils and live in peace forever. I am another year older, so show me the way this year and every year from now until my last birthday celebrated.
