10 Catholic Birthday Prayers for You and Your Loved Ones

There’s a general saying which often goes like “Prayer is the key, prayer is the master, Jesus started with prayers and ended with prayer, prayer is a master key”, and we couldn’t agree more. Because as a true Christian, prayer should never seize from your side, and one of best moment to even seek the face of God more is on your birthday. This is why we are compiling some Catholic birthday prayers for you and your loved ones.

Birthdays are often the best moment in everyone’s life. We tend to party, merry, cakes, and presents, and often times looses our guard in the process.

Catholic Birthday Prayer for Yourself

Thank you, God, for giving me another year of life.
Thank you for all the people who remembered me today
by sending cards, letters, gifts, and good wishes.

Thank you for all the experience of this past year;
for times of success which will always be happy memories,
for times of failure, which reminded me
of my own weakness and of my need for you,
for times of joy when the sun was shining,
for times of sadness that drove me to you.

Forgive me for the hours I wasted,
for the chances I failed to take,
for the opportunities I missed this past year.

Help me in the days ahead to make this the best year yet,
and through it, to bring good credit to myself,
happiness and pride to my loved ones, and joy to you. Amen.
