Ok, the error mesage gives you the issue.  You need to recover your database.

From the sql prompt:
Recover database;

As mentioned in the message, you might need to restore before recover.

The backup and recovery online doc has the steps.  If this is a production database, I suggest you contact Support to assist you if you are unfamiliar with the recovery process.
