Seriously. Why wouldn't your relationship with God be delightful? If you can delight in any loving relationship, then certainly, you may delight in God. You should.
Read Psalm 37:4
God wants our happiness. That precludes that what makes us happy are things that are good for us. IOW, we must delight in what God delights in. Sometimes we pray for things that are just selfish. God is omnipotent so He sees the overall picture--the future, affects, effects, etc.. So we should always be sure to pray according to the will of God. There is nothing wrong in telling God what we desire, but we should ask in the context of His will. Remember Jesus, at a moment where His wits were rampant, still prayed," yet not My will, but Thine be done."
Focus on what pleases God, not what pleases you. Pray to have no delight except what delights Our Lord.
You can't go wrong, there.
