Then they said to one another, “We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news; if we are silent and wait until the morning light, punishment will overtake us; now therefore come, let us go and tell the king’s household.”
--2 Kings 7:9 Revised Standard
Loving Father, I pray that you will help me to overcome unhappiness. May I not let depression overpower me, but claim the promises of joy that are open to every life. May I be blessed by my own cheerfulness and encourage others to possess it. Amen.
