Prayer for My Daughter on Her Birthday

To borrow a phrase from Yeats, Lord,
you have made her a flourishing hidden tree
and granted her beauty and courtesy,
and kindness and charm and wisdom.

I give you praise and thanks for my only daughter,
my firstborn, my Blossom;
for the child you gave me,
for the woman she grew into,
for the love we share,
for the pride and joy I feel in her,
for the blessings you've given her,
and the blessings you've given me through her.

Please bless her today and in the days to come, Lord.
Keep her safe and well.
Keep the baby in her womb safe and well.
Keep her marriage strong and beautiful.
Prosper her and her husband,
answer their prayers,
supply their needs.

Show her every kindness,
grant her your favor,
in Jesus' name, amen.
