When my burdens are heavy and my struggles are before me, when my heart is lost amidst anguish and my spirit is weighed down with hurt and pain, You do not let despair or hardship define my soul, O Lord. You hear my voice when I cry out in my distress, You see the gloom of those dark clouds that cast their shadow over me, and You shine Your light upon the hidden places to find me.
Truly Your goodness and Your mercy follow me O Lord, for though I may feel weak and though there are moments when it all seems hopeless around me, You give me the strength to carry on and prepare for me a resting place for my spirit to find peace amidst the challenges of this life. Unchanging Your righteousness is unshakable, even as Your love for me is steadfast and constant. To the solid rock of Your truth do I cling, entrenched in Your grace, firm in Your hope, trusting that You will guide me and protect me all the days of my life unto the blessed salvation of Your Son.
In the name of Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You in the Kingdom, one God, world without end, Amen.
