15+ Prayers for the Month of May + Scriptures

Please share with others!

This month, I feel God wants the body to truly let go and trust Him as the focus in the prayers for the month of May. When you’re truly trusting God, you feel peace, less worry, your thoughts aren’t overwhelming, and you’re able to be grateful and remember the things He’s done. In contrast, when we rely solely on our own understanding and efforts, we often find ourselves overwhelmed by anxiety, burdened by doubt, and unable to fully appreciate the blessings around us.

Letting go and surrendering to God’s will allows us to experience His peace that surpasses all understanding, freeing us from the weight of worry and doubt. It is in this surrender that we find true rest for our souls and discover the abundant life that God desires for each of us.

May Scripture Reading: Sarah Didn’t Trust God

In the story of Abraham and Sarah, we’re familiar with the promise of a child, yet Sarah’s prolonged wait led to doubt, given her advanced age (Genesis 18:11-12). This doubt drove her to take matters into her own hands, leading to her husband having a child with Hagar (Genesis 16:1-4). Despite Sarah’s actions, God remained faithful to His promise, assuring her she’d have a child (Genesis 18:14). However, when the angel of God conveyed this news, Sarah laughed (Genesis 18:12). Upon being questioned about her laughter, Sarah denied it out of fear (Genesis 18:15).

Amazingly, God still kept His promise to Sarah even though she didn’t believe and made her own plans to produce a son by having Abraham sleep with Hagar. This story highlights God’s consistent love and desire to answer prayers, despite human disbelief, long-suffering, fear, and loss of hope, which may lead us to take matters into our own hands.

3 Prayers to Trust God and Have Hope

  1. Dear God, I acknowledge my reliance on my own strength and confess my tendency to forget that yours surpasses mine in every aspect. Grant me the grace to release control and have faith in your wisdom, for “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5). Help me trust in your perfect plans, knowing that you are always with me and guiding me, as you promised, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10).
  2. Heavenly Father, in moments of doubt, I thank you for your patience and understanding. Your word reminds me, “But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind” (James 1:6). Instead of condemning my unbelief, you offer reassurance and strength to keep believing.  Help me anchor my trust firmly in you, even amidst uncertainty, for “I believe; help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24). May your unwavering love be my constant source of hope and confidence, as your word declares, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope” (Romans 15:13).
  3. Papa God, I come to you with a burdened heart, seeking your healing touch to cleanse and renew me from within. Your word assures me, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds” (Psalm 147:3). Open my eyes to recognize your goodness, even in the midst of challenges and trials, for “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28). Guide me to perceive your presence in every aspect of my life, offering hope and comfort, as you promised, “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me” (Psalm 23:4). Amen.
