“Today is My Birthday”

Dear Lord, almighty God, Thank you, for giving me another year of life.
Thank you for all the blessing.

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 which 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 all the people around me.

Show me the right path, help me to become a better version of my self, Amiin.
