Prayer for Victory over Enemies.
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1 May the Lord answer you (David) in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob set you securely on high [and defend you in battle]!
2 May He send you help from the sanctuary (His dwelling place) and support and strengthen you from Zion!
3 May He remember all your meal offerings and accept your burnt offering. Selah.
4 May He grant you your heart’s desire and fulfill all your plans.
5 We will sing joyously over your victory, and in the name of our God we will 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 strength of His right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we will remember and trust in the name of the Lord our God.
8 They have bowed down and fallen, but we have risen and stood upright.
9 O Lord, save [the king]; may the King answer us in the day we call.Psalm 20:1-9 (AMP)
