Dear Friends,

We see so much in this world nowadays! What we do not see too often is real peace and joy. Hence, I think it quite relevant to briefly write to you about it. 

What I want to tell you is simply this: Jesus wants to take away your sorrows from you and give you real peace and joy. All you need to do is to come to Jesus with your grievance. If you are ready to give your burden to Jesus, He is ready to make your burden light by taking it off from your back.

The reason for your sorrows could be anything; what’s important is that Jesus offers you the assurance that He can remove all the causes responsible for your sorrow. Trust Him and learn it through your own experience that Jesus is true to all who trust Him. the time came for Jesus to leave this world, He said this to His disciples: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

He also said: “Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. In that day you will no longer ask Me anything. Very truly I tell you, My Father will give you whatever you ask in My name. Until now you have not asked for anything in My name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.”

Our joy comes from getting what we want. What Jesus tells us here is to ask God anything that we want in the name of Jesus. Jesus is the Son of God; God loves His Son. Therefore, if we ask anything from God in Jesus’ name, He will surely give us whatever it is that we want. For instance, if you want a job, ask God for it in Jesus’ name and He will give it to you. If you are suffering from some illness, ask God for healing in Jesus’ name and He will heal you. That’s the promise that Jesus has given us.

And if you have everything you need and yet do not have peace and joy, then here is a prayer you can do for it:

O heavenly Father, the Lord of my life, I am coming to you now to seek forgiveness for all the sins that I have committed up till now. Please forgive me and bless me with Your peace and joy. I cannot find them in things; I cannot find them anywhere in the world; and I cannot have them from man. You have them, Lord. You are the source of all that is good. True peace and joy You have, and only You can give them to me. Therefore, I pray to you, God, please fill my life with abundant peace and joy that are in You and comfort me. In Jesus' name I pray, please grant my request, God. Amen.
