Psalm 20

A Prayer for Victory for the King

For the choir director. A psalm by David.

The People’s Prayer

May the Lord answer you in the day of distress.
May the name of the God of Jacob lift you up.
May he send you help from the holy place.
May he support you from Zion.
May he remember all your sacrificial gifts.
May he accept your burnt offerings. Interlude
May he give you whatever your heart desires.
May he fulfill all your plans.
We will shout joyfully when God saves you.
In the name of our God we will lift up our banners.
May the Lord fulfill all your prayers.

The King’s Response

Now I know that the Lord saves his Anointed.[a]
He answers him from his holy heavens
    with powerful acts of salvation from his right hand.

The People’s Prayer

Some rely on chariots, and some on horses,
but we rely on the name of the Lord our God.
They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.
Lord, save the king! Answer us in the day we call!


  1. Psalm 20:6 That is, the king of Israel, who as a type of Christ was called by the title the Anointed
