Psalm 20 – A Prayer for You

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.

Psalm 20

    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!

  1. I haven’t been reading in the Psalms, so I really appreciate your Psalm Sundays! This made me think about the desire of my heart. Today it is to stay close to Him and know of His desires!
    Thank you for this beautiful prayer and I join Ann and Linda in praying it back to you!
    God bless you and yours today, and your week ahead.

    • Deb, One of the best things about having started Psalm Sunday is that I read at least one Psalm every week just to decide what to post. I am so blessed to have you all praying this prayer for me also. I so appreciate it, knowing that God is faithful to answer our prayers. 🙂 Peace, Linda

  2. And I pray this prayer for you as well.

    “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.” Faith becomes real when we forgo the reinforcements of the world and lean only on Him.

    I love the times He showed me that. God is good! : )

    • Linda, I appreciate the prayer in return! Imagine what life would be like if we all prayed this prayer for each other every day. Since we know He answers prayers, I believe it would make a big difference. 🙂 Peace, Linda
