45 Prayers For Having Joy And Happiness
John 16:24 “Until now have all of you asked nothing in my name: ask and all of you shall receive, that your joy may be full.”
Psalms 16:11 “You will show the path of life: in your presence is fullness of joy; at your right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”

Everyone wants to live a happy and peaceful existence. Sometimes, life seems to get in the way of this goal. While you work towards fulfilling your responsibilities and living out your dreams, it seems like obstacles are constantly tossed in your way. At a point, you realize that happiness is a perspective and not a situation. You can choose to be happy in any situation and look towards the problems. Joy is a choice which is far more than something we can jump up on our own or try to put on a fake, happy face pretending everything is ok when we struggle to just get through. It comes from within, bursting from the inside of us. Joy and happiness are not the same. Joy isn’t like happiness which is based upon the happenings or whether things are going well or not. Joy is an emotion that is acquired by the anticipation, acquisition or even the expectation of something great or wonderful. In having joy and happiness, you have to remember there are different kinds of joy but yours should be the joy from God because only the joy of God can bring abundant harvests of grain and new wine which is freshness in Christ.
In this article, we will look at 45 prayers for having joy and happiness. These prayers can serve as a reminder for everything that you have to be thankful for. Through these prayers, you can ask God to inspire you and to uplift your spirits when you are down. They make you remember his love, promise of everlasting life and even the most difficult challenges suddenly seem much easier to bear.
