Prayer for Joy

Father, take these weary, tired, bones and infuse strength into them. Please remind us when we are feeling tired and weak to find a way to squeeze out a smile. For Your word says,

"Do not grieve, for the JOY of the Lord is your STRENGTH.” -Nehemiah 8:10

Oh Lord, whether it's a rudolph nose on a car, a child's wonder at an over-the-top Christmas display, or just simply the fact that it's FRIDAY, show us joy, so we can find strength!  -In Jesus name, Amen.

Prayer for Favor

Father, thank you for Your promise of FAVOR on our lives. Lord, help us to take steps forward in our lives expecting Your blessings instead of waiting for calamity. For when Your son was born, a "great company of heavenly hosts" sang:

“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his FAVOR rests" -Luke 2:14

Oh Lord, today I pray that You will pour out Your FAVOR on everything we touch. Our jobs, finances, relationships, and even our dreams. If Your favor rests upon us Lord, what more can we do? Show us... -In Jesus' name, Amen.
