Praying from a Place of Rejoicing

When we pray, we should be praying from a place of rejoicing because we need to know that in every situation we have peace and we have God. And He takes care of all of our needs.

Philippians 4:4-7

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.


In Acts 20:31, 36-38, Paul’s relationship with the Ephesian elders is a beautiful example of Christian fellowship. They cared for and loved one another. He cried over their needs. They expressed sorrow over his leaving. They prayed together and comforted each other. Like Paul, you can build strong relationships with others by sharing, caring, sorrowing, rejoicing, and praying with them.
