A Birthday Prayer for my Wife, Maggie – 2/25/2011

Posted: February 25, 2011 in Michael K Sanders

Maggie, today on your birthday and always when I think of you, I pray with thanks to God for having you in my life. My prayers for you are of joy as it is clear that God has began a good work in you and will complete that work as our years together continue.

As from the day you were born, as when we met, even now, God’s blessings are poured out on you and I am blessed with your love which everyday grows richer in knowledge and insight of things that really matter in our lives.

Today, God sees you the same as He did when he created you, a beautiful and flawless gift. As do I and I am thankful and trust in His word:

Philippians 3 “I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

….It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart…

…And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.


This is my prayer for you today, Happy Birthday, in Jesus’ Name, Amen
