Dear God, I pray that in every request I make on behalf of others, I do so with joy in my heart. May my prayers be filled with love and compassion for those I am praying for. Help me to always remember to lift up others in prayer and to do so with a joyful spirit. Thank you for the privilege of being able to come to you in prayer and for the opportunity to intercede on behalf of others. Amen.
