READ… the text with an open mind.
As for me, I said in my prosperity, “I shall never be moved.” By your favour, O Lord, you had established me as a strong mountain; you hid your face; I was dismayed. To you, O Lord, I cried, and to the Lord I made supplication: “What profit is there in my death, if I go down to the Pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it tell of your faithfulness? Hear, O Lord, and be gracious to me! O Lord, be my helper!” You have turned my mourning into dancing; you have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, so that my soul may praise you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever. (Psalm 30:6-12)

Oh God, maker of mountains present in our highest heights and lowest depths, as we recognize all that you have saved us from, help us also to see the life you lead us to. Drawn from the pit of despair may we stir up dust to sing and make it our delight to dance in praise of you.
