Psalm 20

 I pray that the LORD
   will listen when you
   are in trouble,
   and that the God of Jacob
   will keep you safe.
    May the LORD send help
   from his temple
   and come to your rescue
   from Mount Zion.
    May he remember your gifts
   and be pleased
   with what you bring.
    May God do what you want most
   and let all go well for you.
    Then you will win victories,
   and we will celebrate,
   while raising our banners
   in the name of our God.
   May the LORD answer
   all of your prayers!
    I am certain, LORD,
   that you will help your chosen king.
  You will answer my prayers
   from your holy place in heaven,
   and you will save me
   with your mighty arm.
    Some people trust the power
   of chariots or horses,
   but we trust you, LORD God.
    Others will stumble and fall,
   but we will be strong and stand firm.
    Give the king victory, LORD,
   and answer our prayers.

You have put the meaning of this psalm in another light, but just as powerful.
