Prayer to Keep the Enemy from Stealing Your Joy

Oh Father, I come to You today as I am so fed up being tormented by the enemy. I want to claim the joy that I know You have already provided. Yet, I am so miserable and depressed because I can no longer get a grasp on it.

I keep reading too much into simple situations and, in the process, stressing those I love. Help me Lord to believe in myself again and to know who I am in Christ.

You, Jehovah are my refuge and my fortress. In You, I know I must place my trust!

2 Corinthians 1:24 – Not that we have dominion over your faith, but are fellow workers for your joy; for by faith you stand.

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

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!

James 1:2-6 – My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting. For he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.

  12. 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)
    Curious in So. Cali..

    • 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: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name…” I hope you have a wonderful blessed day. 🙂 your friend in the Lord, Denise from B.C., Canada

  13. Father God, by your sacrificial love towards us u have given us peace, the peace that surpasses all understanding. I will not allow the devil or anyone to steal my joy and my happiness. Because I know who i am in u oh Lord. For u choose me and set me apart, and I know with confidence the I am your child, and riches are stored up for me in your glory, I claim it and receive it every day that u have blessed me to live in your mighty name Amen.

  14. Dear Holy King, you are all mighty and powerful. You have created the heaven and the earth. You have brought back the dead to life with a single command. You have save Daniel from the lions. You have separated the sea and walk on water. You died on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven.
    But all have sinned and continue to fall short of your glory. We know that it’s in human nature to sin but please, we pray today that you will keep us from sin and forgive us of all the sins we have already committed.
    I pray that you keep me safe from the things of the world and bring me closer to you. Cover me under your blood, Lord. Keep me safe from diseases, illness and other natural disasters. For you God said: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8).
    I pray that you will continue to give me your faith and continue to shower me with your mercy. All the praise, glory and honor belongs to you, almighty father In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
    Lets remember to pray today.

  15. Father God, I claim my peace through the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ. No weapons formed or fashioned against me shall prosper. Jesus be a fence all around me. Protect me from all evil, protect me from all harm. I Claim my joy through you Lord. Hallelujah, Amen and Amen

    • Yes, Lisa, we have to be careful we don’t allow others to steal our joy, for they will try! Instead: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

  16. Amen! Thank you BJ for this wonderful prayer that today I rejoice and claim my joy in Him. God bless you and family abundantly.

    Almighty Father,
    I will glorify You all my life
    In Your strength I will overcome all dejection in life
    I will strive to make You proud
    And claim my joy in You my Lord and God.
