I waited patiently for God to help me; then he listened and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out from the bog and the mire, and set my feet on a hard, firm path, and steadied me as I walked along.
He has given me a new song to sing, of praises to our God. Now many will hear of the glorious things he did for me, and stand in awe before the Lord, and put their trust in him.
Many blessings are given to those who trust the Lord and have no confidence in those who are proud or who trust in idols.
O Lord my God, many and many a time you have done great miracles for us, and we are ever in your thoughts. Who else can do such glorious things? No one else can be compared with you. There isn’t time to tell of all your wonderful deeds.
Lord God, many are the cries for help that are rising to you this day. Cries from Italy. Cries from Louisiana. Cries from hospitals. Cries from the lonely in their homes. Lord, have mercy. Hear our prayers for Jesus’ sake and come to our aid that we might in turn tell of the wondrous ways that you have delivered us. We give you praise for saving us from the deep pit of sin through your Son Jesus Christ who gave His life for us. You have set our feet firm on the Rock of our salvation through faith. Steady us as we go through this day. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
