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.

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.

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!

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!
