Praying from Matthew 2:10 relating to Joy, Faith, Guidance

Dear Lord, just as the wise men rejoiced with exceedingly great joy when they saw the star, I claim the promise of joy in my life. May I always be filled with joy and happiness, even in the midst of trials and challenges. Help me to keep my eyes fixed on you, just as the wise men followed the star to find you. Thank you for the promise of joy that comes from knowing you. Amen.

Verse: When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.
Matthew 2:10

This is a Promise. The verse describes the reaction of the wise men upon seeing the star, which brought them great joy. There is no command given to the reader.
