Daily Prayer for August 27th, 2020    

Good morning, God—thank you! 🙂

Your word says to eat, drink, and be merry—be joyful, and do good. Give thanks. Everything I do, I desire to do for you. I might have sorrow now, but I will still rejoice—not worry but be happy! Holy Spirit, never let anyone or anything steal my joy. I trust in your promises. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13 ESV

12 I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live; 13 also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God’s gift to man.

John 16:33 ESV

33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 ESV

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Matthew 10:28 ESV

28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

John 16:22 ESV

22 So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.
