Being joyful is one of the best emotions to feel. When you feel joyful, you often want to send prayer requests with prayers for joy and gratitude to God so that he knows that you’re grateful that through his grace you are experiencing these wonderful emotions. There are several ways that you can show your joy and appreciation for God and all of his wonderful deeds. One of the best ways to do it is through putting together prayers for joy which can help you to see the good in every situation.
We will print and place your prayer request on the Stone of Anointing; the place where Christ’ body was laid down after being removed from the crucifix and prepared for burial.
Prayers for Joy and Peace
Feeling peace is something that is precious for many people. It is something that they pray earnestly for and something that they incorporate into their prayer intentions. Here is an example of a prayer which expresses joy and as well as a prayer for peace:
Heavenly Father, I long for joy in my heart and peace in my soul. Bless me with contentment, so I may know what it feels like to love this life entirely. I desire to be near You every moment, and I know if I am, I will be able to receive the joy that is waiting for me. Hold my hand, guide me, and let me live in Your perfect will. Wrap Your Spirit around me, so my every breath is in sequence with Yours. Let peace take over my thoughts and encompass my body. May I never, ever pull away. In Jesus’ awesome name, I pray. Amen.
Prayers for Joy and Happiness
In many ways, joy and happiness are two emotions that often go hand in hand which is why it’s not uncommon for a person to pray for joy and happiness. There are several examples of prayers for joy and happiness that you can incorporate into your special prayers such as:
Compassionate and Gracious God, I yearn for happiness to take over my emotions and joy to lead my path. Please allow me to leave behind these feelings of sorrow and depression and erase my overlying, constant feeling of gloom. Fill my thoughts with delightful images and words, so happiness can arise and pull me out of despair. I pray that You capture my spirit and weave in joy, so it is bound by grace and can never escape. I ask these things about Jesus’ name. Amen.
