Product Description
Jesus promises us that the world will give us trials and tribulations, but our hearts should not be troubled. James urges us to "count it all joy...when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness."

In Everyday Prayers for Joy, author Gina L. Smith shares the life-changing lesson she learned to lament in prayer in order to find joy during hard times and changing circumstances.

When she found herself in a difficult season and cried out to God, "He opened my eyes to the fact that often I find joy in the blessings He has provided for me more than I find joy in Him, the provider of the blessings. I needed to begin the process of learning what it meant to find joy in Christ alone."

Biblical joy, Gina explains, "is something that exists even when we are suffering or going through a heavy trial because it's based on the knowledge that God is present, walking with us in our trials, and is producing good fruit in us as we go through them."

In this thirty-day devotional, Gina offers powerful prayers of lament to move past our problems and focus on the source of all love and goodness.

"The prayer of lament is the prayer for a suffering soul," she says. "It is our fight with our soul to remember there is a future....God gave us the prayers of lament to help us process the suffering we face in this life. When we don't use or understand them, we're actually missing out on the experience of going to the One who loves us most and can actually heal our hearts and help us to get to the point where our gaze breaks through to eternity. Lamenting is the way we come to God when life is overwhelming."

Each daily entry includes something to think about, space for journaling thoughts, prayer, and praise, and questions for deeper reflection.
