'May' in the Bible

May grace and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus, the Messiah, be yours!

This is so that God's multi-faceted wisdom may now be made known through the church to the rulers and authorities in the heavens.

Wherefore I ask that ye may not faint at my tribulations for you, which are your glory.

he who went down is the same also who went up far above all the heavens, that He may fill all things --

In their spiritual apathy they have become callous and past feeling and reckless and have abandoned themselves [a prey] to unbridled sensuality, eager and greedy to indulge in every form of impurity [that their depraved desires may suggest and demand].

having known that whatever good thing each one may do, this he shall receive from the Lord, whether servant or freeman.

And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:

I am sending him to you for this very reason, so that you may know how we are doing and that he may encourage your hearts.
