I praise you for raising me up from the deeps that I had fallen
and have not let my detractors have their day.
You remembered me in my hour of affliction and healed my soul and body and mind.
I need not fear the grave or the hell that others have fallen into.
Praise the Lord, Christians, give thanks and bless his name.
His wrath passes quickly, but his love is forever; our weeping is a night’s misery, but
our weeping is a night’s misery, but our joy comes with the new day.
As for me, because of my many blessings, I will remain strong in the Lord.
You have strengthened my footsteps, but when clouds cover your face, I am distressed.
To you alone do I cry for mercy; if I die, will my bones praise you and tell of your faithfulness?
Hear my prayer; come to me quickly!
For in you mourning becomes dancing; black funeral suits are quickly removed and your joy clothes me daily.
I will sing to you and not stay silent; I will rejoice in your name forever! (Psalm 30)
In the power of your Holy Spirit cover me in my weakness.
Shelter me in Jesus’ name, Amen.
