Verse: 1 Thessalonians 1:6
6 You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit.
Dear Lord, I pray that our family would be filled with the JOY of the LORD. I pray we would remember that joy is not the same as happiness but a deeper feeling. I pray our joy would spill over and be a blessing to others. I pray that with the joy given by the Holy Spirit that we may face the challenges and trials of the world with hope.
