The Joy

Lord, let me rejoice in Jesus Christ.

This world is corrupt. It is full of uncertainty, disease, war, famine, and hatred. Let me not partake in it.

May I turn to you for happiness. May I look to your promises for peace. When I encounter trials, may I find joy in those as well. Praise for perseverance gained!

Let me rejoice in the earthly blessings you have bestowed upon me: a beautiful family, fellowship with other believers, and the majesty of nature.

Help me to refrain from acting out in frustration or anger. Let me find rest instead in your perfect plan. Guide me in obedience, so I may find you on this straight and narrow path.

God, thank you for your Son. Thank you for your grace. Thank you for joy in the Holy Spirit.

Amen
