A Prayer for Joy

Lord, restore the Joy of my salvation

Revive the pure Joy in my soul again.

Forgive; usher me into Your presence

Where fullness of Joy is in abundance.

Where else can be Joy inexpressible?

Where else can it be found accessible?

I’ve found it in reading Your precious Word

And in the Spirit’s whisperings I’ve heard.

But perhaps I have found it best in Love,

In the selfless Love that comes from above.

So give me this love, O God, that I may

Gain strength from Your Joy throughout the day.

~ Written 1/22/12, based off of Neh. 8:10b, Psa. 16:16, Jer. 15:16, and 1 Peter 1:8
