In this month, we need to remember to pray for our own hearts to go through spiritual renewal and restoration.

We may not always agree but we can be united as a family.  One of the ways to stay united is by praying for one another.

The enemy attacks families and seeks to destroy the joy, love, and peace in our homes so that he can strengthen his rule.

“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brothers to dwell together in unity!” Psalm 133:1 AMP

Holy God, thank you for my wonderful family who are a blessing to me.

The previous months may have been exhausting and overwhelming. But as we enter the month of May and the month of June marking the halfway mark of the year, we need renewal in our hope, strength, and faith.

“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” Isaiah 40:29 NIV

May Prayer for Prosperity

We need the guidance of the Lord to achieve success and prosperity in our lives. Through prayer, we can ask for his divine intervention and favor on the journey to prosperity.

The Lord wants his children to succeed. Just consider Abraham Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph in the Bible. They were rich! But what God doesn’t want is for us to worship our resources and prioritize them over him. We need to seek the Giver of the resources (God), above the gifts.

“Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.” 2 Corinthians 9:10-11 NIV

Everlasting God, thank you that you are our provider and you don’t withhold any good thing from your children. May your divine blessings be upon us in the coming month and enable us to prosper. Enlarge our harvest, make us fruitful, and enrich us in every way. Holy Spirit, help us not to put our hope in our riches but in the Lord alone. May we have a heart of generosity and gratitude for all the resources God bestows upon us. In Jesus’ name l pray. Amen.

Financial Blessings Prayer for May

Financial difficulties can cause us to become stressed and anxious about the present and what the future holds for us.

But even in those times, the Bible encourages us to trust God’s plan and believe that he is for us and will provide for all our needs.

In our prayer life, we need to believe that the Lord will grant us financial blessings, miracles, abundance, and peace when it comes to his provision.

“Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:31-33 ESV

Heavenly Father, your word encourages me not to be anxious about my needs because you provide for the birds of the air and know exactly what l need. As a child of God, I have faith that as l seek you first you will provide for all my needs. I’m trusting you for abundance, a financial miracle, blessings and increase in my wealth, and a healthy bank balance. You are all-powerful and l trust you will make a way Lord. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.

May Prayer for Health

Our bodies house our soul and spirit and we only have one body to take care of. As we start the month of May we need to pray for increased health and protection from sicknesses and diseases.

When we are strong and healthy, we can perform good works and fulfill God’s purpose for our lives.

“Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security.” Jeremiah 33:6 ESV

Gracious God, thank you for your steadfast love, presence, and grace in our lives. Grant us good health so we may prosper and excel in all we do. Fill us with energy, strengthen our immune systems, and protect us from germs that cause illness. Because our bodies are the temples of the Holy Ghost, may we be good stewards of our bodies by making wise choices in nutrition and exercise. In the name of Jesus Christ l pray. Amen.

May Prayer

May Prayer for Joy and Peace

Joy comes from the Lord and doesn’t depend on our external circumstances but comes from our relationship with Christ. When we have joy we live a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

We enjoy peace not because we don’t have problems but because we trust God to help us in our trials. Peace comforts us and relieves our stress and anxiety. As we enter a new month, new problems arise but when we have the peace and joy of the Lord, we will surely be content and calm.

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 ESV

O God, l come boldly to the throne of grace because I’m entering a new month with burdens and challenges that make me restless and overwhelmed. Today I choose to trade all this stress and worry for the endless joy and perfect peace of the Lord. Quiet my anxious thoughts as l put my hope, trust, and faith in your promises and power. In Jesus’ name l pray. Amen. 

May Prayer

May Prayer for God’s Presence

In our Christian faith, it’s important to seek and be in God’s presence. There is joy, mercy, abundance, strength, peace, protection, fruitfulness, rest, and love in his presence. We are transformed in our thoughts and actions when we enter His presence.

When we intentionally and earnestly seek the Lord despite our busy schedules, we will experience miracles, hope, and healing in our lives and those around us.

‘Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’ Isaiah 41:10 AMP

Almighty God, as I approach the coming month, l seek your presence so l may never walk alone. Hold me with your righteous right hand so l may have the strength, courage, and victory to face any battle that comes my way. O’ Lord, transform me from the inside out so l would bear fruit in your presence. Thank you for your help and protection which surrounds my family and l. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

May Prayer

Prayer to Experience God’s love

One of the most important things we can ask the Lord for in our daily prayers is to experience his amazing love. There is nothing quite like it. This kind of love is pure, unconditional, and unending and will completely transform you.

God’s love is not dependent on what we do but on who he is. In fact, he loved us so much, that he sent Christ Jesus to die for us while we were sinners (Romans 5:8). As you move into May, ask God to help you experience his faithful love and share that love with others as well.

“For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,  nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39 ESV

Abba Father, thank you that I’m alive today because of your wonderful, steadfast, and unfailing love towards me. Like Apostle Paul, l am convinced that nothing can ever separate me from your love. In the new month, may l experience the depth of your love for me and allow it to heal, comfort, strengthen me, and give me confidence. As l receive your tender and perfect love, help me to share it with others around me. In the name of Jesus Christ l pray. Amen.

May Prayer

Prayer for Wisdom in May

Wisdom is the ability to apply good judgment when making decisions and applying the knowledge we have. In the Christian faith, we receive wisdom as a gift from the Holy Spirit. The good news you can ask God for wisdom and he will grant it to you as he did to King Solomon.

Wisdom brings honor, riches, abundance, and obedience to God, helps you work smarter, and equips you to handle difficult situations. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 1:7).

“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.” James 3:17 NIV

Dear God, grant me divine wisdom, understanding, and knowledge so l can honor you and bring glory to your name. In this coming month, help me to fear the Lord and gain wisdom and discernment to make good decisions and achieve success. Teach me to apply your word and principles every single day this month so l can live in peace, and be fruitful and submissive to your will. Help me to be able to accept wise and godly counsel from those around me as well. In Jesus’ name l pray. Amen.

May Prayer

Prayer for Spiritual Growth

Regular Bible reading, studying God’s word, fellowship with others, and having an active prayer life are some of the key ways to grow spiritually in our daily lives. Our Heavenly Father expects us to grow in the same way as parents we expect our kids to grow physically and mentally.

In the new month of May, it’s important to ask the Lord to help us be intentional about our relationship with him and commit to

“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him,  rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” Colossians 2: 6-7 NIV

Gracious God, I humbly come to your throne to honor you for you are powerful, mighty, and the source of life. Show me how to intentionally prioritize my spiritual growth. O’ Lord, in May, l ask that you teach me to hunger and thirst for more of you so that l may be rooted and built up in my faith. May the Holy Ghost that lives inside me cause me to grow and become more like Jesus Christ. Amen.

Prayer for Guidance in May

As we start the coming month of May, we need God’s guidance to help us along the journey. When we are uncertain and need to make decisions, the all-knowing Lord guides us along the way.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV

O God, you are holy, powerful, and glorious. I pray for your guidance in this new month because it gives me strength and courage and leads me on the path of peace. Help me not to lean on my own understanding but to trust you to show me the right direction to take. I surrender my plans and will and commit to doing what honors you only. In the name of Jesus Christ l pray. Amen.
