Psalm 20

Prayer for Victory

To the leader. A Psalm of David.

1

The Lord answer you in the day of trouble!

The name of the God of Jacob protect you!

2

May he send you help from the sanctuary,

and give you support from Zion.

3

May he remember all your offerings,

and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices.Selah

 

4

May he grant you your heart’s desire,

and fulfill all your plans.

5

May we shout for joy over your victory,

and in the name of our God set up our banners.

May the Lord fulfill all your petitions.

 

6

Now I know that the Lord will help his anointed;

he will answer him from his holy heaven

with mighty victories by his right hand.

7

Some take pride in chariots, and some in horses,

but our pride is in the name of the Lord our God.

8

They will collapse and fall,

but we shall rise and stand upright.

 

9

Give victory to the king, O Lord;

answer us when we call.
