Prayer for the Week: Is there joy to be found in this moment? Our faith tells us there is. Provide us, O God, the capacity to know the joy that has its origin within you. Provide us the capacity to receive your gift of joy that is never to be confused with happiness or exuberance. Let us recognize its ability to speak the truth of your love into every imaginable situation. Joy does not erase our pain or sadness or heartache, yet it supplies the conviction that we are never alone. It confers upon us the Good News that nothing can ever separate us from your love. Those simple convictions of the heart bring joy. Amen.
