O Lord, who will not rejoice at your presence? For if you had not come to save the world, what would have become of us? To the joys that await us in heaven, the sorrows of this world are little more than a distant memory, and seem to weigh little against the never ending joy of heaven. We rejoice because our place is with you and your saints in heaven. Rejoice, rejoice to the Lord, all you lands! Sing aloud, O Heavens and earth, burst into song, O mountains! For the Lord has comforted His people and will have mercy on His afflicted. Lord, I want to rejoice in your presence.Please help me to focus on the many blessings that you bestow upon me.I look forward to the day when you and I can meet in heaven. And until then, help me expect good things as I praise you and spread your gospel. May the Father of Jesus Christ bless you and keep you. May He make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. May He bless you with abundant life, love, joy peace and happiness. And forgive your every single sin.
Praise the Lord. It is good to praise the Lord! We are remarkably created because we are made in the image of God. He made us in His own likeness and likeness of his perfect will. The Lord crowned each one of us with crowns that cannot be seized; once given, it will not be snatched away. For those who seek the lord, the lord promises a reward that cannot be snatched away. Those who greatly hope for the lord’s salvation and love will never be disappointed! Rejoice with rejoicing ones, for great is your prize in heaven! Let’s do a little word association. When I say “rejoice”, what comes to mind? Just about everyone says happiness and joy. That’s because the Word of God says that we are to “rejoice in the Lord always!” (Philippians 4:4) Lord God, you know that I am a sinner. Help me to rejoice in your grace as my Savior. As I bless your name and praise you now, wash away my guilt, cleanse me of my sin, and fill me with the holy Spirit. Bestow on me your divine favor; strengthen me with your almighty power; and keep me safe in the shelter of your love.
It is a delight to praise you my Savior. Your Word says that when I pray, your ear is open to my prayers and you will hear them. You have promised to answer me. In fact, God, your whole purpose for sending your Son Jesus was so that I would have an eternal relationship with you. O Lord Almighty, Creator of the universe, we come before You in faith and thankfulness for Your many blessings. We praise You for who You are and for what You have done. We thank You for hearing our prayers and for answering them throughout the day as we have come to You with gratitude, love and joy. We praise Your wonderful and holy name! Dear Lord, I come before you today feeling nothing but pure joy. In this moment I am deeply content and at ease. My heart is filled with peace and my mind is at rest knowing you are here with me. Thank you for being there for me every day through all of my triumphs and struggles. Father, we thank you for blessing us with this day. We bless you for giving us the opportunity to grow closer to you. Father, we thank you for the opportunities that have been presented to us today. We ask that you guide our steps as we make decisions on how to act upon these opportunities. In your name, Amen! a
Prayer To Rejoice In The Lord
Scripture Reading: Exodus 15:1-18, Philippians 4:4-9
Holy Father, we give thanks to You and proclaim Your greatness. We will let the whole world know what You have done for us. We thank You for entering into a relationship with us. Thank You for a time of intimate praise and worship with You. Thank You for meeting our physical and spiritual needs. Thank You for a time of Christian fellowship and unity. With our whole hearts and with all that is within us, we bless Your Holy Name. It is You, Father, who crowns us with love and tender mercies. You fill our lives with good things; our youth is renewed like the eagle’s. We will sing to You the praises due Your Name and tell everyone about Your miracles.
Triumphant Father, we decree that as we rejoice and praise Your Name, our souls will be anchored in You. Your Word says, “if we come close to You, You will come close to us.” Therefore, we confess that we will meet You daily in intimate prayer, praise and worship. We will come before You with broken spirits and repentant hearts as we meet You in Your sanctuary. We know that as we worship You in spirit and truth, there will be a spiritual exchange and we will shed more of our carnal nature and allow the Holy Spirit to take His proper position in our lives. Lord, we expect Your Kingdom to advance in our lives with miracles, signs and wonders and we will rejoice always.
Holy Spirit, I will rejoice in You each day by (list things that you will do to honor God): ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Teach us to be timely with our praise with humility. Lord, hear our voices as we sing praises to You in perfect unity. Clothe us with compassion, kindness, gentleness, and patience. Holy Spirit, give us the power to serve with joy, gratitude, love and enthusiasm. We will spread our happiness, joy and worship all over the world so that all can see how wonderful and fulfilling it can be to rejoice in You.
Merciful Father, please forgive us for all acts of sinfulness, including jealousy, contempt, pride, criticism, lying,gossiping, hatred and malice. Forgive us for not remembering to give You honor and glory. Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).Holy Spirit, remind us of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).”Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one.
Glorious King, all praise belongs to Your Name forever and ever. You have all wisdom and power. You control the course of world events; You remove kings and set up other kings. You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to scholars. All honor belongs to You alone. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
