Lord Jesus, you are King of kings and Lord of Lords, Prince of Peace and judge over all. You are the Holy One who deserves my reverence. You are the One who calls me friend. The One who captivated my heart and soul. Thank you for these words that show your intent toward me, that your joy may be fulfilled in me. Let your joy flood every part of me and shine out no matter what circumstance roils around me. I ask in your name above all names, and according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“But now I am coming to you, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves.” (John 17:13 ESV)
