A Prayer for Victory

1May the LORD answer you in the day of distress;

may the name of the God of Jacoba protect you.

2May he send you help from the sanctuary,

and may he sustain you from Zion.

3May he remember all your gifts,

and may he accept your burnt offerings.


4May he give you what your heart desires,

and may he fulfill all your plans.

5May we shout for joy at your deliverance

and unfurl our banners in the name of our God.

May the LORD fulfill all your petitions.

6Now I know that the LORD has delivered his anointed;

he has answered him from his sanctuary

with the strength of his right hand of deliverance.

7Some boastb in chariots,

others in horses;

but we will boast inc the name of the LORD our God.

8While they bowed down and fell,

we arose and stood upright.

9Deliver us, LORD!

Answer us, our King,d on the day we cry out!

a 20:1 i.e. Israel
b 20:7 The Heb. lacks Some boast
c 20:7 Or remember
d 20:9 i.e. God
