A Prayer for You (Psalm 20)

When I read today's Psalm, I got excited and I want to pray it back for you, dear reader! (Sorry I'm posting this so late in the day, this is the first chance I've had to get online!)

May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble;
    May the name of the God of Jacob, a God who identifies Himself by those who He's in covenant with, defend you;
 May He send you help from the sanctuary,
    And strengthen you out of Zion, out of heaven;
May He remember all your offerings, offerings of praise,
    And accept your sacrifice, the living sacrifice of your life,
May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, transforming you to His likeness,
    And fulfill all your purpose, for which He created you.

We will rejoice in your salvation,
    And in the name of our God we will set up
our banners of His army, an army victorious!
    May the LORD fulfill all your petitions.

Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed;
    He will answer us from His holy heaven
    With the saving strength of His right hand.

Some trust in weaponry, and some in wealth;
    But let us remember the name of the LORD our God, the only thing to surely save us!
Others bowed down to worldly things and fallen;
    But we have risen and stand upright.

Save, Our Mighty, Unmatchable God!
     May the King answer us when we call.


See you later when I do Psalm 21 and the weekly Friday link-up! Join us with your reflection on any Psalm, 1-21.
