Hearer. Defender.

The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble;
the name of the God of Jacob defend thee.

Psalm 20:1

Reading:

Psalm 20

Just what I needed to read this morning!

“The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble;
the name of the God of Jacob defend thee”
(Psalm 20:1).

“Send thee help from the sanctuary,
and strengthen thee out of Zion”
(Psalm 20:2).

“Remember all thy offerings,
and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah”
(Psalm 20:3).

“Grant thee according to thine own heart,
and fulfil all thy counsel”
(Psalm 20:4).

I wonder how many people will pray that for me. (No, you don’t need to feel obligated to comment below that you will.)

I want to remember these verses and the hope I derive from them — I claim them as strengthening reassurance in the darkness that surrounds me.

[The Scriptures say in Psalm 20:5 -- In the name of our God we will set up our banners]
from Psalm 20:5
[The Scriptures say in Psalm 20:1-4 -- In the day of trouble]
Psalm 20:1-4

Surely you could add something...
