Psalm for Prayer

Psalm 20

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

 [1] May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble!
  May 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 salvation,
  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 saves his anointed;
  he will answer him from his holy heaven
  with the saving might 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 collapse and fall,
  but we rise and stand upright.

 [9] O LORD, save the king!
  May he answer us when we call.
