Prayers to My Son on His 16th Birthday
It is a day of joy, seeing your son celebrate his 16th birthday. Not so long ago, he was a baby depending on you for almost everything. Now, he is all grown. Today certainly calls for celebration, and words of prayers.
1. Even when you came out, face squeezed and not smiling, I still thought you the most handsome son ever. Its been 16 years since then and my feelings haven’t changed. I still think that you’re the most handsome boy ever. May this year bring you rich and beautiful blessings, my son. Happy birthday.
2. There’s nothing that gives me more joy than being your mother. Even with a career that keeps getting better and better, with friends and family people would give a lot to have. Nothing trumps being your mother. As you’ve filled my life with so much joy and happiness, may your years be filled with so much joy and happiness. Happy 16th birthday, my son.
3. See how you’re entering 16 in grand style! I’m still wondering when you stopped being my small boy, waiting for me to give you baths, to carry you around, and to feed you. It’s been years of growth and learning. And I pray that as you celebrate 16 years, growth, blessings and favour will never depart from your life.
4. If I had my way, I’d guard you every minute of the day. Because, even though you’ve turned 16 today, you’ll always remain my little boy, my sweet child. But I know how impossible this is, so I’m entrusting you into the hands of God. May He protect, guide and bless you for the rest of your days. Amen. Happy birthday, dear.
5. Where did the years go?! Because I didn’t ever think we would get to this point so fast. As a single mother, all I just kept thinking about was how to make it through, one day at a time. And now, you’re 16! With all my heart, I pray that only good surprises will follow you for the rest of your days. May favour from heaven and men locate you always. May you never beg before you eat. Happy birthday, baby.
6. See the fine man you’re turning out to be. Oh, my heart is full of so much joy! I doubt other mothers are as happy as I am today. Happy 16th birthday, my son. May life’s situations always favour you. And where it seems as though you’re lacking, may God’s coverage speak for you. I love you so much.
7. I made a promise to always look out for you, to always provide for you, and to ensure you get to whatever point you want to go. It’s been 16 years, and all I do is still geared towards this dream. You’re a good son through and through, and I pray that grace and perfection will continue to be yours all the days of your life.
8. I never thought we’d reach this point. I honestly didn’t. Not when I was only concentrating on taking things one step at a time. You’ve made being a mother so easy, so fulfilling. I pray that the years from now will be kind and rich. Happy birthday, baby.
9. There’s no father that is as proud as I am right now. With all the hurdles we had to face and cross, I get to witness you turn 16. I pray that the Lord will keep you for many more decades to come, that His light will always be on your path, guiding and showing you the perfect path to take. Happy 16th birthday, son.
10. If I was asked to change anything about you, flaws and all, I wouldn’t. You’re unique, you’re from my loins, and I love you with all my heart. And I pray that as you turn 16, the Almighty will continue to shower you with His blessings and favour; amen. Happy birthday, baby.
