Oh send out thy light and thy truth; let them lead me, let them bring me to thy holy hill and to thy dwelling!
Then I will go to the altar of God, to God my exceeding joy; and I will praise thee with the lyre, O God, my God.
Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my help and my God.
Father, teach us to praise you in all circumstances. Help us to learn to enter your gates with thanksgiving so that we may come to your altar with praise on our lips. Your are our help and an ever present help when we are in trouble. We thank you and praise your holy name. Amen.
