College Prayer Guide 5: {Joy}

“The Lord has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.” (Psalm 126:3 NIV)

Joy. This is another gift from God that I personally find myself taking for granted a lot.  When we (especially most college students) think of our lives as Christians, “joyful” or “exciting” probably aren’t words many of us think of first.  But that doesn’t have to be the case!  Pray that they, and all Christians, would be overflowing with joy about their relationship with Christ.  Pray that the college students you know would find joy in the work God calls them to do each day, in college and in their future.  Pray that the joy of Christ would overflow from them and impact the lives of people around them.  Perhaps use the quote below to help shape your prayer of joy for college students.

“What I am anxious to see in Christian believers is a beautiful paradox. I want to see in them the joy of finding God while at the same time they are blessedly pursuing Him.  I want to see in them the great joy of having God yet always wanting Him.” ~ A.W. Tozer
