psalm 20

1 In times of trouble, may the LORD answer your cry. 
      May the name of the God of Jacob keep you safe from all harm. 
 2 May he send you help from his sanctuary 
      and strengthen you from Jerusalem.[a] 
 3 May he remember all your gifts 
      and look favorably on your burnt offerings. 
                         Interlude

 4 May he grant your heart’s desires 
      and make all your plans succeed. 
 5 May we shout for joy when we hear of your victory 
      and raise a victory banner in the name of our God. 
   May the LORD answer all your prayers.

 6 Now I know that the LORD rescues his anointed king. 
      He will answer him from his holy heaven 
      and rescue him by his great power. 
 7 Some nations boast of their chariots and horses, 
      but we boast in the name of the LORD our God. 
 8 Those nations will fall down and collapse, 
      but we will rise up and stand firm.

 9 Give victory to our king, O LORD! 
      Answer our cry for help.

am reading through the bible this year, the bible program i am following has a couple of verses from the book of psalms for each day of the year. this one has been so comforting to me of late.
