Thanks be to God who ALWAYS causes us to triumph in HIS NAME!

Today I was up at 3am and worked at a local Board of Elections, until now, while it would have been great for any conceding to occur in another day or so, I have peace that passes all understanding, and pray this Psalm for all readers. God BLESS America (this song takes on a whole new meaning for me after today!)

Psalm 20

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 May the LORD answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
2 May he send you help from the sanctuary
and grant you support from Zion.

3 May he remember all your sacrifices
and accept your burnt offerings.

4 May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.

5 We will shout for joy when you are victorious
and will lift up our banners in the name of our God.
May the LORD grant all your requests.

6 Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed;
he answers him from his holy heaven
with the saving power of his right hand.

7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.

8 They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.

9 O LORD, save the king!
Answer [a] us when we call!


Psalm 20:9 Or save / O King, answer
