Prayer For Joy – the Joy of the Lord

Prayer For Joy

My Father, You created me out of joy. When You made me, You said that I am perfect. You made me to live a prosperous life, full of happiness and peace.

Heavenly Father, you are my strength and my redeemer. You are my healer and my provider. Lord, I give all my worries and cares to you. I lay it all at your feet. Fill me with your joy and take away this sadness.

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

Overcoming Adversity

Abba Father, as long as I am on this earth, I know adversities will come my way. But I ask that You help me to rest in You. I know that You are in control.


Help me to have that joy and peace in my life so I will be able to smile through any storm confident that I will come out stronger for it. Help me not to look at my adversities but to look directly at You.

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

Psalm 30:5  For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime. Weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.

The Joy of the Lord

Father, I pray that You fill me with the joy of the Lord, that overwhelming joy. Your joy is unlike anything this world has to offer. It brings peace, trust and hope and with that a rest because I know You are in control.


Your Word says in Nehemiah 8:10, Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the Lord is your strength! I will lift my eyes to the hills, Lord, because I know from You comes my joy and peace. Thank You, Father, and I love You. Amen!

Psalm 27:6 Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me. At his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy. I will sing and make music to the LORD.

Prayer seeking the joy of the Lord when depressed

Heavenly Father, recent decisions and directions in my life have left me very depressed and low. I feel that I have no direction or calling in my life.

I’ve been seeking you, oh Lord. But I cannot feel your presence, nor your leading in what to do next for my career and life. I want to grow stronger in You, Lord and use my life to fulfill Your purpose for me. I want to experience your joy.


Lord, give me that breakthrough I need and desire to gain Your wisdom for my next steps! Please Give me insights into how to gain intimacy with You Lord. I want to experience your peace and joy. Thank you so much!

Thank you Father, for answered prayers. Take me in your arms and comfort me. In Jesus mighty name I pray, Amen!

  9. Thank you. I really needed this today. I’ve been so heavy inside. This weekend I lost my phone that had everything in it my credit cards and license. I retraced my steps and couldn’t find it. I was so mad. I even said how can I lose this phone when I was doing a good deed when it happened. I immediately asked for forgiveness but it still didn’t make me feel better. I’m thankful for this prayer.

    1. Tonya, this is Sandra, When I loose things I always say, Lord reveal the things that are hidden and sometime I asked God to help me with Divine mind fine and sometime I say be still and know and I find it just like that then I give God praise and glory!!! sometimes I think God is playing games with me or having fun but we have lots of fun when I lose things I just have an opportunity to PRAISE the Lord!!! when I find it. BE still and know, then wait on God to direct your steps, try it! B-day June 22nd????ya, I would like to have you as my Sister in Christ, JESUS LOVES YOU much. STAY COOL????????????
