Prayer For Inner Peace And Joy

Dear Lord, thank You for my job and workmates, and thank You that I am able to provide for all my needs and nescessities and those of my family.

Lord, I want to carry out my work each day to honour You and so I not only ask that You would continue to provide me with the strength, wisdom and grace I need to fulfil the many tasks and duties I am required to do each day, but that I may carry out my responsibilities with an inner peace and a joyful disposition, to Your praise and glory.

Thank You that the joy of the Lord is my strength, and I pray that my work colleagues and all with whom I come in contact may see the love of Jesus flowing through me and desire to have the joy that of knowing Him as Saviour brings, so that they too may be drawn into saving faith in Him. This I ask in Jesus' name,


Loving Lord and Heavenly Father, thank You for the joy and peace that I have in trusting You. Right now, I lift up my brothers and sisters in Christ who are going through difficult times or feeling alone or discouraged.

Father, I pray that Your love would fill their hearts, that Your peace would flood their inner being, and that they may overflow with Your joy and hope in believing, by the power of the Spirit, and to Your praise and glory.

Help each one to enter into a deeper dependence upon You and come to a closer communion with the Father. I pray that Your peace which passes all understanding, would guard their hearts and that they would find their joy in You, knowing that the joy of the Lord is our strength. I ask this in Jesus' name,


Heavenly Father, I desire joy in the inner man, and Your Word warns us to be on our guard against all kinds of greed and covertness, knowing that life does not consist in the abundance of our possessions, but on our deepening relationship with You. And so I pray that I will be kept free from this toxic attitude of heart, which can too often steal our joy in the Lord and break our close communion with You.

Thank You that in Your presence is the fullness of joy, for You alone are my abiding hope and in Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Keep me looking to Jesus and away from the enticements of this world, and may Your joy and peace flood my inner being, knowing that the joy of the Lord is my health and strength. In Jesus' name,


Loving Lord, I know that in Your presence is the fullness of joy and at Your right hand are joys for ever more. Thank You for the joy I have in You, through the blood of Jesus Christ my Saviour, and thank You Father, for the peace and love and hope that I receive from You so freely as Your eternal gift of grace to all Who trust Jesus as Saviour. How it rejoices my heart and guards my mind, with each passing day.

Lord, I pray that I may draw from Your living wells of salvation day by day, and that my joy may be full to overflowing in Jesus, just as You have promised to all that Your children.

Thank You for the joy of the Lord, which is my strength and stay. Help me always to rejoice in Your joy and to remain in Your love, so that my joy might be full and so that Your joy may well up in my heart and overspill to others, to the glory of Your name.


Lord, as we enter the Christmas season, we want to take time to thank You for sending Your Son to be born as a baby and to become our Saviour, so that He can bring peace into the hearts of those that believe, and joy to those that find their hope in Him.

Lord, we know that only in Him is true peace and lasting joy to be found, and as we sing the Christmas carols and choruses this Christmas season, we pray that true joy would come into the world, and that many would find their peace. In Jesus' name,


Heavenly Father, what a comfort to read of the prophets of old who despite the difficulties and dangers that they were called upon to face, were able to rejoice in the Lord and trust in Your never-failing faithfulness.

I pray that like them, I too may receive Your abiding joy and discover like them, that the joy of the Lord is my strength and that the peace that comes from You is an abiding peace that enables me to overcome all difficulties of life, in the power of Your Holy Spirit.

So fill my heart with Your abiding joy so that I may rejoice in life's circumstances, in periods of plenty and during those seasons when I have very little, in times of hardship as well as those times of great sufficiency.

Thank You, that I am Your child and You are my Father and sovereign Lord. May my heart rejoice in good times and in bad, and may Your abiding joy and perfect peace find residence in my heart, as I rest in Your love and trust in Your unfailing goodness. In Jesus' name,


Heavenly Father, how I bless and thank You for the glad tidings of great joy that were given to all people, through that angelic host so many years ago. Thank You for Jesus, and the joy and peace that floods the hearts of all who have believed in Him, the rock of their Salvation.

Eternity is too short to praise and magnify Your glorious name for all Your goodness and love towards me, and to all who are called by Your name, for in You is the fullness of joy.

Help me to share this joy of knowing Jesus with all those who You place in my path, and I pray that throughout the world there may be many sinners today who are saved by grace through faith in the shed blood of Christ Jesus, so that they too may experience the joy which is freely available to all who believe in the gospel of grace. In Jesus' name,


Dear Lord,

Your love in me is like a flame that burns within my heart,
Giving light to all I do and everything that I am.
Sometimes it dances in my soul as I praise your name.
At times it dims or flickers low when hard times come my way.
Even in the darkest hours I sense your light afresh,
Reminding me to trust in you.

Be still and wait and rest my soul!
For every flame needs gentle fuel.
Your love is the key,
For keeping this little candle burning alight in me.
It guides my life, my thoughts, my dreams,
And shines for all to see.
Thank you for the happiness and peace you give to me.
