L-rd, you safeguarded my soul,
even in the midst of the darkness
that seemed to consume my life,
at the time when all was lost.
Draw your servant out of the darkness,
and into the light of your sacred intentions,
that I may know what Your design is
for my soul to flourish in this world,
and the World-to-Come.
Rescue me from the fire and ice,
so that I may be free to breathe fresh air,
unhindered by the mire,
where I had previously sunk.
That every day may be
an opportunity for renewal,
as I climb higher on the divine ladder,
between Earth and Heaven.
