Prayer to end the Month of June: Gracious and loving God,As we gather before Your divine presence at the end of this month of June, we come with hearts full of gratitude for the blessings You have bestowed upon us. We acknowledge Your faithfulness throughout this month, for You have guided and protected us in all our endeavors. We approach You now, seeking Your grace and wisdom as we enter a new month.
Lord, we thank You for the precious gift of life and the opportunities You have given us to grow spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. Thank You for the moments of joy and laughter, the times of healing and restoration, and for the strength and courage You have granted us in the face of challenges. We praise You, for Your mercies are new every morning.
As we reflect on the past month, we confess any shortcomings, mistakes, and sins before You. We ask for Your forgiveness and cleansing, knowing that You are a God who forgives and redeems. May Your unfailing love wash over us and purify our hearts, so that we may walk in righteousness and obedience in the days ahead.
In Your word, You have promised us that “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23). We cling to this promise as we enter into the next month, knowing that Your love and faithfulness will accompany us every step of the way.
Lord, we surrender our plans, desires, and aspirations for the coming month into Your hands. We acknowledge that You are the author and perfecter of our lives, and we trust in Your divine guidance. Grant us the wisdom to discern Your will and the strength to follow it faithfully. May we seek first Your kingdom and righteousness, knowing that You will provide for all our needs (Matthew 6:33).
We pray for Your grace to abound in our relationships. Help us to love one another as You have loved us. Grant us patience, kindness, and forgiveness toward those who have wronged us. May we be peacemakers and agents of reconciliation in a world that desperately needs Your healing touch.
Lord, we lift up our prayers for those who are suffering and in need. May Your compassion flow through us as we extend a helping hand to the hungry, the homeless, the sick, and the marginalized. Use us as vessels of Your love and instruments of Your grace, that we may make a positive impact in the lives of others.
Finally, Lord, we pray for an outpouring of Your Holy Spirit upon us in the coming month. Fill us afresh with Your presence, empowering us to live out our calling as followers of Christ. Grant us the courage to be bold witnesses of Your gospel, sharing the hope and salvation found in Jesus with those around us.
We offer this prayer in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior, who taught us to pray:
“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil” (Matthew 6:9-13).
