Lord, you redeemed my life and made beauty from ashes. I am forever humbly grateful. I lift my thanksgiving in your name above all names, in your authority greater than any other, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken. Affliction will slay the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be condemned. The Lord redeems the life of his servants; none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.” (Psalm 34: 19-22 ESV)
