PSALM 20[Q] Prayer for the King in Time of War 20 1For the leader. A psalm of David. I 2The LORD answer you in time of distress; the name of the God of Jacob defend you! 3May he send you help from the sanctuary, from Zion be your support. 4May he remember[R] your every offering, graciously accept your burnt offering,Selah 5Grant what is in your heart, fulfill your every plan. 6May we shout for joy at your victory,[S] raise the banners in the name of our God. The LORD grant your every petition! II 7Now I know the LORD gives victory to his anointed. He will answer him from the holy heavens with a strong arm that brings victory. 8Some rely on chariots, others on horses, but we on the name of the LORD our God. 9They collapse and fall, but we stand strong and firm. 10LORD, grant victory to the king; answer when we call upon you.
