Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you Lord Jesus for the joy that wells up within me. Thank you for the overflowing fountain of your living water that flows into my soul. In spite of many trials and tribulations, your spirit of love and your Holy Touch are alive in my heart. In spite of moments when loneliness might consume me, your Holy Spirit brings joy in the middle of the gloom. In spite of sadness that assails my heart, your Holy Spirit turns the sadness into a joy that brings tears to my eyes. In moments of pain and suffering, your touch upon my heart pushes away the pain because of the joy of your being. When I am troubled, your Holy Spirit brings joy that erases my troubles. When I am distraught, your Holy Spirit brings a peace because of the joy that pushes aside all distress. When I am fearful, your Holy Spirit fills my heart with joy…a joy that brings encouragement and power over every obstacle. When I am low in spirit, your words and messages fill my starving heart with the joy of your manna from heaven. All these things I pray in the name of our precious savior Jesus Christ. Amen and Amen.
