Prayer should be joyful

"Ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands" (Isa. 55:12). I often think of this verse while I'm enjoying the view of the trees outside my house and watching them swaying in the breeze. Sometimes it's as if they truly are clapping their hands to praise God.

Several months ago, I had an opportunity to prove that I could confidently and joyously applaud and honor God, in spite of the appearance of my body.
