O Lord, you brought me up from the pit of rancor, conflict, the abuse of my body and spirit. You restored my life to sing praises in your courts. Your favor is for a lifetime. My weeping comes for a night; but by your favor, your joy comes every morning. You turned my mourning into dancing, my lament into rejoicing. You loosed my oppressed spirit and clothed me with gladness. I will thank you all my days in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever!” (Psalm 30:11-12 ESV)
