Prayer for Victory over Enemies.
For the music director. A Psalm of David.
20 May the Lord answer you on a day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob [a]protect you!
2 May He send you help from the sanctuary,
And support you from Zion!
3 May He remember all your meal offerings
And [b]accept your burnt offering! Selah
4 May He grant you your heart’s desire
And fulfill your whole plan!
5 [c]We will sing for joy over your [d]victory,
And in the name of our God we will set up our banners.
May the Lord fulfill all your desires.
6 Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed;
He will answer him from His holy heaven
With the [e]saving strength of His right hand.
7 Some praise their chariots and some their horses,
But we will praise the name of the Lord, our God.
8 They have bowed down and fallen,
But we have risen and stood upright.
9 [f]Save, Lord;
May the King answer us on the day we call.
