Joy Through Prayer

Pleasures are short term things, Joy not only endures, it can grow.

Your relationship with God through Jesus Christ is meant to be a source of joy.

Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our LORD: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10

But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. Psalm 5:11

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:11

And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation. Psalm 35:9

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. Romans 5:8-11

For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. Romans 14:17

I can put a message above the prayer, but it would be an error to try to put a message in the prayer. - Prayer is conversation with God.

To preach at you when I am claiming to talk to God would diminish the reality of that conversation. I will type the start of my prayer time; please join me.

Then continue to talk, listen, & hear as
you converse with the Lord of life.

Father God,

We thank you for all you have done in our lives. We seek to see you as you are, not as we would make you out to be. In the name of Jesus Christ our savior;
we enter in to your presence, fellowship with us, draw us to you.
