I’m still going in order with the Psalms, and the next one that I’ve not posted before is Psalm 20. It is a wonderful prayer that I lift up today for all my family and friends, including all you of my friends who read this today. The Lord will be faithful to answer this prayer in the way that is best for you all, and when He does we “will life up our banners in the name of our God” and give Him all glory and praise.
For the director of music. A psalm of David.
1 May the LORD answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
2 May he send you help from the sanctuary
and grant you support from Zion.
3 May he remember all your sacrifices
and accept your burnt offerings.
4 May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.
5 We will shout for joy when you are victorious
and will lift up our banners in the name of our God.
May the LORD grant all your requests.
6 Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed;
he answers him from his holy heaven
with the saving power of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
8 They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.
9 O LORD, save the king!
Answer us when we call!
