A lot of people, if not everyone, look forward to birthday celebrations. For different reasons. Some for the cake, some for the fun, some for the drinks and some for other reasons. And the best way to start a birthday party is by praying.
Why should we pray to start a birthday party? Because there are many beautiful things about prayers. One is that they assure people that you have their interest at heart and perhaps the most beautiful reason is that there is a God to answer.
Two beautiful ways to bless a birthday celebrant are opening and closing prayers. Never forget that.
While some opening prayers are unique to certain kinds of events, some are general and can be used anywhere. In this article, I wrote long and short prayers and I made them for a 50th birthday celebration. However, you can edit them for any age being celebrated this year 2020.
Some of the cutest opening prayers for a 50th birthday party celebration in 2020 are found right here. Jump in and explore the beautiful prayers here, and use them.
