Celebrating another year on this earth: Numbers 6.
Numbers 6:24-26: ‘The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.’
February is the month of my birth, and since I am turning another year older, I have many reasons to be celebrating. I also have many reasons to be grateful to God.
This is my prayer to God for all my blessings:
Thank you God, for sparing me for yet another year. You brought me into this world, and I was presented to the most wonderful family. I know for a fact that I did not have the easiest birth, and from the moment I was born I had to face some obstacles. All these obstacles have made me a much stronger person and I wouldn’t change them for the world.
In my life God I am so grateful for all the love you have given me. When I was down you lifted me up, your unending love has pulled me through all my dark days. There have been times when I was weak and you gave me the strength to carry on. From the time I was able to say, “Play with me?” You have given me the most amazing friends that I could ever have wished to have. God You have always made sure that I had water or something to drink and food to eat, you provided a roof over my head and a bed to sleep in. God you have been a true friend and confidante through thick and thin.
For all of your blessings I would just like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. A million words could never be enough to thank you for what you have done for me. God you have done for me what no one else could ever do. I want to say thank you for sparing me, and may you continue to make your face to shine upon me, and be gracious to me, and give me peace. I love you so much, thank you for allowing me to celebrate my birthday again. Amen.
When your birthday comes around remember the scripture piece from Numbers.6. You, just like me have also been abundantly blessed. So remember to say your own prayer of gratitude, to thank God for all your blessings as well.
