Prayer For Joyfulness

In a world that has so many difficulties and dangers Lord, it is so easy to allow our hearts to become weighed down with pressures and overwhelmed with problems and yet You have promised that the joy of the Lord is our strength and we thank You that Your strength is made perfect in our weakness.
I pray that I may keep my eyes fixed firmly on the Lord Jesus and live in total dependence on You in the knowledge that You have overcome the world and that You have promised to give us Your joy and peace in our hearts.
Thank You for Your abiding love. I pray that I may learn to fully abide in You and You in me so that Your joy may be in me and may be complete in Christ, in whose name I pray,
