Prayer to be Happy!

Father, show us how to be happy. Not the kind of happy because everything is going right in our lives, but the kind of happy despite what is going on in our lives. 

Show us how to live the way You want us to. Giving You all of our troubles and worries so we can enjoy the joy, peace, and love that You promise. 

For Your word says, "Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." —Philippians 4:6

Breathing out the anxiety, breathing in the happy! -In Jesus' name, Amen

Prayer to Get Through

Father, help us see the beautiful that you have waiting for us on the other side of the brutal.  

For your word says, "Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me." -Psalm 23:4

Or Lord, remind us today that You don't put us in the dark valley and you don't leave us there either!  You get us THROUGH it while comforting us in the process.  We imagine you taking us by the hand and saying, "come on my child, let's get You out of this, I've got something great on the other side that will reward You for obeying me."  

-In Jesus' name, Amen.
