Happy Birthday Prayer for my Dad

 I was looking for a good Bible verse for today, and have you ever searched "Birthday" in the Bible?  Not very many happy verses!  Nothing I found I wanted to repeat here, today is a day of celebration, not warning.  So I decided on this pre-birthday Bible verse. 

Psalms 139:13-18
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,t God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I want to take a few moments to thank you for my Dad, and lift him up to you on his birthday.  I know he loves me.  He has shown me the importance of having a generous heart.  Thank you that he is a follower of Christ and is living for you.  He is a living example of your Grace and Love.  I'm am blessed to call him my dad.  It is wonderful to have him be so involved in my kid's lives and mine.  He is a blessing to my family and I couldn't have asked for a better dad.  He has always brought fun, excitement and laughter to our home.  I pray that you continue to bless him and draw him ever closer to you.  Thank you for my Dad.
