5 Prayers For Joy To Help You Live A Happy Life

James 1:2, 3 tells us to be joyous even in difficult times because when our faith is tested, we learn how to be strong and persevere. Even Jesus Christ was tested in the wilderness by the devil. As children of God, we should know that our journey in this life will not be smooth however we should be joyous knowing that we will overcome in the end because God is on our side.

Proverbs 10:28 says that the prospect of the righteous is a joy but the hope of the wicked comes to nothing. This tells us that our final destination will always be joy. In our journey with the Lord, there will be times where we feel dejected, rejected, sad, unhappy, and abandoned. These are just ways the devil tries to cloud our judgment and deceive us to follow him.

Sometimes we are deceived into thinking that worldly possessions are equivalent to joy and happiness. We spend our lives and energy searching for material things that we think will solve all our problems and give us eternal happiness. Prayers for joy are meant to ask God for joy in our hearts.

Joy has nothing to do with the worldly materials you possess. This is why you can see a very rich person who is very unhappy and see a poor person who is so joyous and content with themselves. Pure joy comes from within.

Christians are full of joy because in their hearts they know that they have a father in heaven who loves them so much and will protect and keep them for as long as they live on earth and even beyond death.

True joy does not care about what is going on around you. You still feel self-assured that everything will be fine. When you have joy in your heart you are not afraid of the perils of this earth. You are sure within you that all is well.

Be joyous always. Feel the spirit of joy in your heart. Look for things that will give you joy. The kingdom of heaven gives me joy because I know that all other worldly possessions will perish but Christ in my heart means that I have eternal life.
