{Romans 14:17; ESV}

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Father in Heaven, teach me to worship You in such a way that it will draw people to You. Lord, I want to see people from every nation praising Your name. Give me a place in Your a Kingdom to help make that happen.

Father, You know there are many avenues that promise me joy. Yet, I know most of them are false and will not bring joy to my heart. Even so these things tug at my heart and are enticing to me. I ask for wisdom and discernment so I can understand the true nature of the things that call to my heart.

I want a joy that lasts, a joy that cuts through the things of this world, and a joy that survives death. May joy be one of the characteristics of my life as the Holy Spirit continues to bring healing and life to my heart. Bring me joy, Lord God, the joy that my heart truly desires.

I pray this in the name of Jesus, my Lord and Savior. Amen.
