Psalm 20 New Living Translation

A Prayer for Victory

20 1  In times of trouble, may the Lord answer your cry. May the name of the God of Jacob keep you safe from all harm. 2  May he send you help from his sanctuary and strengthen you from Jerusalem. 3  May he remember all your gifts and look favorably on your burnt offerings. Interlude 4  May he grant your heart's desires and make all your plans succeed. 5  May we shout for joy when we hear of your victory and raise a victory banner in the name of our God. May the Lord answer all your prayers.

6  Now I know that the Lord rescues his anointed king. He will answer him from his holy heaven and rescue him by his great power. 7  Some nations boast of their chariots and horses, but we boast in the name of the Lord our God. 8  Those nations will fall down and collapse, but we will rise up and stand firm. 9  Give victory to our king, O Lord ! Answer our cry for help.
