A Prayer for the Joy of the Lord:
At the start of each day, help us to recognize you above all else.
Enlighten the eyes of our heart that we might see you and notice how you’re at work through our lives.
Give us wisdom to make the best choices, fill us with a desire to seek after you more than anything else.
Please allow your Spirit and power to work mightily within us, through us, again, fresh and new.
Thank you that you are greater than anything we may face in our day, or in these difficult seasons.
Thank you that your presence goes with us, and that your joy is never dependent on our circumstances; but it is our true and lasting strength, no matter what we might be up against in this world.
We ask that your Spirit lead us, that your peace would guard our hearts and minds in you.
We ask for your grace to cover our lives, and that you would bring us through every dark season with your joy and favor.
We love you Lord. We need you today, and always.
In Jesus’ Name,
