May 2022 Prayer

Photo taken by Mandy Sweigart-Quinn.

Lord God, prepare us for this new month. Lord, whether we live in a place where it’s spring, fall, rainy season or dry, help us to love and serve You right where we are.

Lord God, when we aren’t surrounded by Big “I” we are inundated with digital “i” (and android). Help us Lord to not live for Big “I.” Lord God, convict us if we have made ourselves slaves to our digital devices. Lord God, help us to unplug more this month. Help us to take inventory of how we are using the web and social media this month.

Lord God, there is so much restlessness, anxiety and agitation in our world today. Help Your people Lord to trust and depend on You. Lord God, help us to be more concerned about sharing Your Word and defending Your Truth. There is so much negativity and falsity Lord. Help Your people to be discerning!

Lord God, thank You that nothing in this world surprises You. Lord God, I pray for my brothers and sisters who are being persecuted for their faith. Strengthen them, encourage them, fill them with the peace of Your Presence.

Lord God, help us to prepare now for living in even more difficult times. I don’t know what it will be like in the last days, but I do know that evil and wickedness are increasing. How us to be a light in this dark world as we separate ourselves from this dying world system.

Thank You Lord for this reader. Lord, may this reader find comfort and strength in You this month. Guide this reader Lord on the path they should go. In Jesus’s Name I pray. Amen.

My name is Mandy Sweigart-Quinn, I live in Lancaster, PA and I am a “Blue Collar Theologian.” I love Jesus! I am passionate about His Word (The Holy Bible)! I come alive when I can encourage others in their walk with Jesus (whether by writing or speaking). As a “Blue Collar Theologian” it is my aim to live/practice/work out my Christian hope with sincerity, authenticity and genuineness. As a “Blue Collar Theologian,” I strive to meet people right where they are (“Incarnational Theology”). I graduated in May 2019 from Capital Seminary and Graduate School with a Master's in Biblical Studies. I am a passionate, excited and enthusiastic person! I love flowers, sports and sunsets. Since January 2, 2018 I have had the privilege of being married to Nathan.

    1. In the States we refer to Big “I” as a way to denote selfishness. Big “I” is the most important or above everyone else and their needs etc. So many people today are serving Big “I” meaning they are serving themselves. Big “I” is god and king, the center of the universe. I hope this makes sense! Thank you for the question!!!!

  1. “Big I,” “little i.” I never noticed that before, but you make a good point, Mandy. It seems that pertaining to our attention these days, the “I’s have it.” ( – sorry!) Thanks for always saying a prayer for your readers. We all need it! Have a blessed May.

      1. Singing on the porch with my daughter, probably the first time we really did that since she got married 4 years ago. It was wonderful having her harmonies again.
        I’m heading for my high school reunion Wednesday (our 50th!) and have been asked to play my Celtic harp and lead singing for a brief gathering outside. There’s a pillar there by our bench (Our class gift to the school) that has the names of our classmates who have passed on. I guess all of our names will be there eventually – if Jesus tarries. 😉 Thanks for asking. Have a great week, Mandy. 🙂

    1. So true, Lisa! It’s hard to believe we are 5 months into 2022 and all the changes we have seen. Praise God He knows. We need not be afraid. I am SO thankful to be on this Jesus journey with you!!! Lots of love, hugs and blessings to you, Bob and Starry Night!!!


  2. Howdy friend. Thanks for the May prayer. We really need to abandon the “Big I” and understand our salvation has nothing to do with what we have done but everything about Jesus.

    Blessings for a wonderful month to you and Nathan.

      1. Thanking GOD Mandy that He answered our prayers. There is more that can be said from me on that treacherous thyroid especially May 1, perhaps someday. Monitor it until it us cleared because that one is like a time bomb, it explodes/metastasized decades later when one least expects it. So FAMILYiar just like diabetes.

  3. A beautiful and powerful
    Prayer Mandy. Unplugging a bit more from our devices, I think we all need that. It takes so much intentionality every day for me to not reach for my phone as often as I tend to.
    Have a blessed day my friend 💙😊

  4. Amen Mandy, Such a beautiful prayer and a much needed way to start a new month! Hope you, Nathan and PQ are well. I have not been blogging much as I’m aiming to finish my book about the end times, it’s nearly done, prayers appreciated! Sending much love to you and family 😊

  5. Always grateful for your prayers for discernment in a world of lies. I think its great you prayed about how we use the internet and social media. And your reminder to pray for persecuted believers is important.

  6. Amen!! Love the way you lift up the concerns of this world…the fact that we notice the messiness reminds us we’re not of this world…if we didn’t notice it’d be a sure indicator we were headed in the wrong direction.
