"I do myself a favor, and share joy with my neighbor."
We can't all move to Cyprus, but the idea is that our happiness is independent of our circumstances. It is self-contained, meaning that regardless of what is happening to us externally, we can be truly happy internally. We can be genuinely blessed as followers of Jesus Christ. –BibleHub.com
God answers prayer in the most unexpected way; and that is half the fun. When we pray it usually seems that there is some obvious way in which the demonstration will come–and then, lo and behold, it comes in and surprising and delightful way. Sometimes it seems that there is no way, humanly speaking, in which the problem can be solved, and yet solved it is, and in some glorious and thrilling manner.
God acts out of the blue, so to speak. If we would only have a quiet faith in our prayer, without being tense or fussing, leaving the ways and means to Him, but being confident that the demonstration will come, come it will, and the result will always be even better than we hoped.
"Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee thine desires of thine heart." Psalm 37:4
–Make Your Life Worthwhile, Emmet Fox.
The more you give to yourself, the more you feel great love - and that emotion is the key to happiness and peace. Your self-care extends the joyful spark of creation for the benefit of all. -–Doreen Virtue, Daily Guidance from Your Angels

Pray for Others
When I pray for others, I experience our Oneness.
If someone seeks guidance, I see them walking confidently in the direction of their good. For healing, I imagine them whole, well, energized, and free. When I hear of someone’s heartache, I envision them wrapped in the peace of Spirit.
When I pray for others, I pray for myself. I empathize, knowing our human experience has similar challenges. We are one in Spirit—strong, wise, and whole.
Therefore … pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.–James 5:16
