May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble;
May the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
May He send you help from the sanctuary,
And strengthen you out of Zion;
May He remember all your offerings,
And accept your burnt sacrifice.
May He grant you according to your heart’s desire,
And fulfill all your purpose.
Scholars suggest this was a prayer offered by the people for their king on the eve of battle.
Who might be headed out to battle today that could use this blessing?
