How to Personalize Your Prayer
Personalizing a prayer adds a heartfelt and meaningful touch, making it more relevant to you and your friend. It also gives you the opportunity to reflect on your friendship and what it is you want to convey.
Try these tips for personalizing your prayer on your friend’s special day:
- Add details about your friend’s needs. This could include birthday wishes she’s expressed to you, troubles she’s currently facing, or personal goals she’s set for herself. Ask God to bless her in the coming year and watch over her throughout her unique struggles and journey.
- Consider your friend’s major life experiences. You may want to mention the milestones she’s reached, the challenges she’s overcome, and the growth she’s made at the end of each experience. Thank God for the guidance and grace he’s provided her thus far.
- Share your own wishes for your friend. Personalize your prayer by expressing the wishes and blessings you desire for your friend. This could relate to continuing good health (or improved health), spiritual strength, growth in her career, finding a partner, or any other significant part of their life.
- Pray from your heart. The most important part of personalizing your prayer is to connect with God and those for whom you pray. You love your friend and know her well. Be genuine and sincere, praying for the things that are in your heart to create a prayer that’s truly your own.
