Each week, Interceding For Our Children posts a new prayer and I feel it is so important that we pray for our children that I want to list the prayers here as well. Take a moment to say this prayer over any children in your life, and then visit IFOC to see prior prayers she has posted.
Take care and God bless you.
I pray that ______________ be given the gift of joy. Let the spirit of joy rise up in their heart this week and may they know the fullness of joy that is found only in Your presence. Help them to understand that true happiness and joy are found only in You. Whenever they are overtaken by negative emotions, surround them with Your love. Teach them to say, “This is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 18:24).
“You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11
“His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” Psalm 30:5
