PRAYER JOURNAL PROMPTS FOR MAY

For a public school teacher (me), May brings the promise of flowers, sunshine, and…summer on its way! Throughout a school year, my schedule stays full. I very intentionally plan out my days so that I can complete everything I want and need.

Organization doesn’t come easily for me, but I know how important it is for me to make that effort each day.

As the school year winds down and my excitement for summer grows, remembering to write in my planner and to stay organized falls by the wayside. I’ve learned from the past that my prayer life can do the same when I’m not intentional in other areas.

That’s why I’m excited to use the May prayer prompts to stay on track. I really think you’ll love them as much as I do. Be sure to let me know what you think!

  2. I as trying to download the Printable May Prayer journal, but, the link takes me to the purchase of a book. I am sure the book is awesome, I just don’t want to buy it and I don’t see an option not to purchase it. Is the Journal Free or is it Free if I buy the book?

    1. Hi Audrey! Once you fill out the form and submit it, a free copy of the May prompts will be emailed to you. If you aren’t interested in the book of prompts, you can simply close that window. You will still get your free prompts via email. Let me know if you have further questions either by replying here or emailing me at julie(at)lovingchristministries.com. Thank you!

  3. These are so thoughtful, Julie! I’ve been trying to journal a bit more in the mornings, but I sometimes feel stuck! What a wonderful resource!
