Joy to the World! Ding Dong Merrily on High! Hark, the Herald Angels Sing! At this time of year, we sing about joy a lot, but how often do you stop to notice and value the joy in your life? God wants us to bring our care and concerns to him so that we can receive his peace, and thereby be freed to rejoice. 

Dear Lord, joyous God,
As we bring our concerns and requests to you, help us shed our worries so that we can better know your peace. Give us glad hearts and joyful minds, to radiate your love and good news to all we meet.

Matthew 3: 1-3, 11

22 All this took place to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet:

23 “Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel,”

which means, “God is with us.”
