Jesus prayed this prayer for his disciples because these were the important issues on his heart. We, too should pray for these issues, to align with his heart.
Jesus followers are to seek, cultivate and then share the ‘Joy of the Lord”, personally and corporately.
To have the same faith and confidence David displayed in this Psalm 27 after learning to wait upon the Lord, knowing that God had his best interest at heart. Not necessarily in our timing, but in His.
You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy
