Father, in a world where there are so many difficult situations, troubled times and hurting hearts, we lift up those that are going through grievous times and entrust them into Your care. We pray that You would sustain them with Your sufficient strength and pour into their hearts the joy that only comes from You.
Thank You, that the joy of the Lord is our strength and that You have promised that Your grace is sufficient for all eventualities. Keep us all with our hearts fixed on You and instil in our hearts a joyful disposition so that we may bring comfort and cheer to those around us, and be salt and light to those that are facing troubles or difficulties. In Jesus' name,
