Jesus the Source of Joy!

Lord Jesus, You fulfilled the psalmist prayer request! "Send out Your light and Your truth" for You at the light and You are the truth! "Let them guide me and lead me to Your holy mountain, to the place You live." You are the Way to the Father!

Why do I become so discouraged? Why do I allow my heart to be so sad? Forgive me for giving up hope the moment disaster comes my way! I desire to trust You completely!

Thank You, Jesus, for being my guiding light to God! Thank You for being the Way to God! Without You I would not have access to God! You are the Source of ALL my Joy! I will praise You and thank You with all I have!

Jesus, we pray Your Holy Spirit will reveal to ____ You are the way, the truth, and the life. May _____ know in his/her heart You are the only he/she can come to the Father. We pray _____ will understand in his/her heart that You are the only Source of Joy! Lord Jesus, may we be living examples of what Your joy can do! Your joy is peace of mind and heart. When troubles assail us, may we show we trust You and our hope is placed in You. In Your name, Jesus, we pray the Father's will be done through us. Amen

Scripture Reference: Psalm 43:3-5; John 8:12; 14:6

Send out your light and your truth; let them guide me. Let them lead me to your holy mountain, to the place where you live. There I will go to the altar of God,  to God—the source of all my joy. I will praise you with my harp,  O God, my God! Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again—   my Savior and my God!
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.
