Prayer to Keep the Enemy from Stealing Your Joy




Prayer for Protection Against Joy Stealers

Heavenly Father, my source of unending joy, I come to You today aware of the enemy’s schemes to steal the joy You have placed in my heart. I recognize that my happiness is a strength derived from You, a gift that the enemy seeks to snatch away through worry, fear, and doubt.

Lord, I ask for Your divine protection over my heart and mind. Shield me from the attacks that aim to drain my peace and cloud my happiness.

Help me to be vigilant, recognizing the subtle ways in which negativity tries to seep into my life. Strengthen me to stand firm in faith, holding onto the joy of the Lord as my fortress. May I find my happiness not in the transient things of this world but in the eternal hope found in You.

Nehemiah 8:10 …Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Prayer to Overcome Discouragement and Despair

Almighty God, in times when discouragement and despair threaten to overwhelm me, I turn to You as the wellspring of all comfort and hope. I reject the lies of the enemy that seek to diminish my spirit and choose instead to embrace the truth of Your Word, which promises joy and peace in abundance.

Help me to focus on the blessings You have bestowed upon me, to count each one and to find peace and happiness in Your constant presence in my life.

May Your Holy Spirit uplift me, breathing new life into my weary heart. Replace every negative thought with affirmations of faith, hope, and love. Let me be an example of unshakeable joy, a beacon of light in a world often shrouded in darkness.

Psalm 42:11 Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.

2 Corinthians 4:8-9 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.

Prayer for Renewed Joy in Trials

Lord Jesus, in the midst of life’s trials and tribulations, I sometimes find my peace waning under the pressure of circumstances. In these moments, I call out to You for a renewal of joy, a fresh outpouring of Your Holy Spirit to revive my weary soul.

Remind me that trials are opportunities to experience Your faithfulness and that in every challenge, You are working for my good.

Teach me to find peace and happiness in Your presence, to cultivate a heart of gratitude, and to see each day as a gift to be cherished.

Even when I walk through valleys of shadow, let the joy of Your salvation be my guiding light, turning every tear into a testament of Your love and every hardship into a story of Your grace.

James 1:2-3 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.

Psalm 30:5 Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.

Allowing Others to Steal Your Joy

Lately, I have allowed others to steal my joy over and over again, and it is so difficult to claim it. Every time I try, it seems to get more and more difficult.

I have become demotivated and despondent, dejected, lacking confidence, my spirit has dropped to an all-time low.

Abba Father, I know that I am responsible for my happiness so help me to free myself from the negative energy I feel.

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 – Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.

2 Thessalonians 1:11-12 – Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power, that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Declaration of Freedom

Grant me new insight, Lord and take me to a higher level in understanding what I am dealing with. I declare right now that I am a child of the Most High and Loving God and I will live a life free from resentment and full of contentment.

I have total control over my mind and I will be peaceful, regardless of what happens around me. At this very moment, I claim my joy, in the matchless name of Jesus Christ! SO BE IT…AMEN!

Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

James 1:2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.

  19. I often wonder why you pray to God when the Bible says that the only way to God is thru His Son, Jesus. Pray to Jesus, the Son of God. (John 14: 6)

    • Hi Christy, I saw your question when scrolling down to look to see if they had a song posted at the end and hope you don’t mind me answering. When you are reading John 14:6 it is talking about our relationship and salvation with God is through his Son, Jesus. If you read The Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13, Jesus himself started it with, “This, then, is how you should pray: β€œβ€˜Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name…” I hope you have a wonderful blessed day.
