What should we pray for in March?
In many areas of the world, March is a season of new awakenings. The earth begins to thaw after dark months buried beneath autumn’s fallen canopy. The long, cold months have mostly passed, and the season ahead is full of hope and potential.
March is a season of restoration for God’s created world. The trees begin to sprout tiny bulbs, and the skunk cabbage emerges through the soil.
Families emerge from their homes to plant bulbs and prepare backyard gardens. Children strip off winter coats and run through the afternoon sunshine. Neighbors return to the evening routines of dog walks and porch sitting.
Let’s look at ten powerful prayers for March as we prepare our hearts for this hopeful shift in seasons.

March prayers often include topics of renewal and new life.
Springtime is a reminder that God will one day make all things new. He will restore our fallen world and redeem his children and his creation.
