The Lord answer you in the day of trouble! The name of the God of Jacob protect you!
May he send you help from the sanctuary, and give you support from Zion.
May he remember all your offerings, and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices.
May he grant you your heart’s desire, and fulfill all your plans.
May we shout for joy over your victory, and in the name of our God set up our banners. May the Lord fulfill all your petitions.
Now I know that the Lord will help his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with mighty victories by his right hand.
Some take pride in chariots, and some in horses, but our pride is in the name of the Lord our God.
They will collapse and fall, but we shall rise and stand upright.
Give victory to the king, O Lord; answer us when we call.
Food For Thought:
The line that stands out to me in this passage of Scripture is that the Lord will answer us when we call. When have you felt that you had been calling out to God? Did God answer you? Did you ever feel that you had an unanswered prayer? How did that feel?
O God our ruler and shepherd, you anointed Jesus as the king and servant of your people. Make us attentive to your word, that we may accept your reign over us and serve you alone. In your holy and precious name we pray, Amen.
