Asking For God's Joy

#22--Steps to Peace

Read this Psalm that I want to pray for you and fill your name wherever you see (NAME).

Heavenly Father make Psalm 84, verses 1-12 come to life in our lives.
 

Let us know that it is lovely in Your dwelling place, O Lord of Heaven's Armies. 
Lord, put a longing in our hearts to enter into Your courts.
Fill us Lord with You that we might shout joyfully to You with our whole being; our body and soul. 
Even the sparrow builds her nest and raises her young at a place near Your altar, Lord,

as the birds want to be close to You, so may we always desire to be close to you.
O Lord of Heaven's Armies, my King and my God, we claim these promises that are in Psalm 84: 
The first says that we can have joy when we live in Your house, always singing Your praises. 

Help us Lord to live moment by moment in Your presence not just visiting You for brief periods.
 

We want the joy that comes when we find our strength in You.  Help us to set our minds on You. 
 

Many of us have always been very strong willed;

now Lord turn that strong willed nature into being stubborn for You and

hard headed for You and relentless in our pursuit of You. 
 

And for [NAME] Lord I pray these verses: 
[NAME] has walked through the “valley of weeping”, now, let it become a place of refreshing springs. 

Let the autumn rains clothe her with blessings. 
Let [NAME] continue to grow stronger and stronger until she appears before you in heaven to receive your acceptance into heaven. 

O Lord hear our prayer, Listen O God of Jacob.
O God, look with favor upon [NAME]. Show favor to her, anoint her with Your Spirit.

O Lord let us always know that a single day with You is better than a thousand anywhere else. 

For You are our light and our shield. 

You give us grace and glory and You will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. 

Help us, Lord, to always do what is right in Your eyes.

O Lord, You promise joy for those who trust in you.  O Lord, we beg You to fulfill these things in our lives.

In Your mighty Name we pray, amen

With God's love,  Judy
