Advent Week 2 - A Prayer of Joy

Read:  Isaiah 35:10, Luke 2:7-15, Nehemiah 8:10, 1 Peter 1:7-9

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we enter this second week of advent we consider joy in You. 

I thank You and praise you for the great and true joy that comes from knowing You!

As we sing songs of this wonderful season just as "Joy to The World", we remember that Jesus is our true source of joy. 

I praise You that You remind us in Your Word that joy in You is our strength and that true joy entered into this world from You!

Help us to experience this great joy and strength Father!

Joy in the midst of the mundane.

Joy in the high times.

Joy in the low times.

Help us to consider it all joy no matter what we face in life!

To experience joy in You all of the time is our hearts desire!

I praise You that joy from and in You isn't some shifting or temporal things and that even in the midst of hard times, joy can be experienced.  

I praise You that joy in You is true and that Your joy is everlasting!

I praise you that joy is a gift from You!

I praise you that joy is built on Your firm foundation unlike happiness that is based on temporal or momentary things.

I ask for Your help through Your Holy Spirit to help us experience this joy daily.

Just as the angels proclaimed the birth of Jesus to the shepherds, I ask for your help through Your Holy Spirit so that through this season and beyond that we would be messengers of the "good news of great joy that will be for all the people"...that you've brought to us through the gift and birth of Jesus! 

May Your true joy be seen and experienced by many this season and beyond and may the light of Christ burn brightly in and through us. 

I thank You and Praise You again for Your Joy! 

In Jesus name I praise You and Thank You, Amen.

Because He is THE Reason for the season,

Your Brother and Servant,
