Praying from Philippians 2:18 relating to Joy, Rejoicing, Unity

Dear God, please help me to find joy and gladness in all circumstances, just as the apostle Paul did. May I rejoice in your goodness and faithfulness, even in the midst of trials and difficulties. Help me to have a heart of gratitude and thanksgiving, and to share that joy with others. Thank you for the example of Paul and for the reminder to always choose joy. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Verse: In the same way, you also should be glad and rejoice with me.
Philippians 2:18
