100 Birthday Wishes for a Friend or Loved One
Written by Robin Okwanma

Marking a friend’s birthday or that of a loved one by sending him or her a gift, a greeting card, a wish or prayer is a clear show of affection that goes a long way to strengthen your relationship with such person, and should not be taken for granted. Whether is going to be a loud party, a small celebration or just thanking God for the gift of life; that ultimate gift of a birthday wish or prayer can lighten up a dull day even in the absence of gifts.

That heaven sent prayer or wish can heal hearts, can give hope of better tomorrow, bring out a smile from nowhere, even keep you in blessed remembrance in that friend or loved one’s heart that will be reciprocated possibly in a bigger way later. Yes, it can go that far. Here we have a compilation of 100 nice birthday wishes and prayers you can edit and use to bless that loved one or friend by text message, or in a greeting card, social media post, a call and the like, that would make him or her feel great. You might even put the message in a fancy small letter under the pillow or on the dining table – in a book, even on an artwork! So let’s go.
