God of the Universe, your word says that the joy of the Lord is my strength. Let me be filled with your joy and find the strength I need to overcome any problem I face. As I start each day, may I feel your powerful presence at work within me. As I end each day, please renew my strength. Your power has been victorious over sin, shame and death. Let me live in the light of your victory. To you be honor and glory, forever and ever. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
