Prayer for the King in Time of War

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 God send you help from the temple, from Zion be your support. a Pss 128, 5; 134, 3 . 4May God remember* your every offering, graciously accept your holocaust,   Selah 5Grant what is in your heart, fulfill your every plan. 6May we shout for joy at your victory,* raise the banners in the name of our God. The LORD grant your every prayer!

7Now I know victory is given to the anointed of the LORD. b Pss 18, 51; 144, 10; 1 Sm 2, 10 . God 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. c Ps 147, 10–11; 2 Chr 14, 10; Prv 21, 31; 1 Sm 17, 45; Is 31, 1; 36, 9 . 9They collapse and fall, but we stand strong and firm. d Is 40, 30 . 10 LORD, grant victory to the king; answer when we call upon you.
