Prayer to Encourage Others
Heavenly Lord, the more I ponder it, the more amazed I am how much I can immediately increase or decrease my joy and the joy of others by simply choosing to say things that are good, and true. You have told us that joy is vital, joy is our strength. Satan works overtime trying to do anything he can to diminish our joy. Holy God, do not let me sit by and let this happen by inattention. Steer me to fight the good fight with faith-filled words, releasing joy into the very atmosphere.
Lord Christ, you came to bring good news and glad tidings of great joy, to overcome evil with good. I know you want me to be as committed as you were to finding and magnifying the good in every part of life. Help me to say something good, to express my salvation and to encourage others!
