Lord, please help us to have a good, positive, hopeful, joyous and bright attitude today. Uplift our spirits and fill us afresh with your joy. May your joy rise up in our hearts in such abundance that it overflows for others to see. And when we speak, may your spirit be contagious. We praise your name and glorify you as the lifter of our heads when we are down. You are our everlasting father, who has given us a wonderful life for all eternity. Father, we love you.
