Day 7

A PRAYER FOR JOY

Dear Father, keep me abiding in you so that your joy may be in me and that my joy may be full. Cause my heart to rejoice, and let no one take my joy from me.

I thank you that despite what I am going through, I have full access to your joy. Help me to count it all joy when I fall into various trials.  You are the God of hope and you have the final word.

Sometimes it feels that hope and joy are distant from me. When I feel this way, it’s often because I have put my trust in man or other things. Forgive me for not trusting you, Lord.  Help me to draw nearer to you.  I am weak without you.  Turn my sorrow into joy!

Father, you give me oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness! This is your gift and your will!

When my gaze is on you Jesus, everything else fades.  Let me experience everything in your presence because that is where there is fullness of joy.  You are my strength and my song. I sing for joy!

Lord, I ask you to fill me with all joy and peace in believing, that I may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Make me love righteousness and hate wickedness; and anoint me with the oil of gladness more than my companions.

In Jesus’ name

Amen
