A Victory Decree

May God Hear You
1In your day of danger may Yahweh answer and deliver you.
May the name of the God of Jacob # 20:1 Jacob was one transformed by God’s grace, changed from a schemer who took from others into Israel, God’s prince. set you safely on high!
2May supernatural help be sent from his sanctuary.
May he support you from Zion’s fortress!
3May he remember every gift you have given him
and celebrate every sacrifice of love you have shown him. # 20:3 Or “May he consider your burnt offerings generous.”
Pause in his presence
4May Yahweh give you every desire of your heart
and carry out your every plan as you go to battle.
5When you succeed, we will celebrate and shout for joy.
Flags will fly when victory is yours!
Yes, God will answer your prayers, and we will praise him!
6I know Yahweh gives me all that I ask for
and brings victory to his anointed king.
My deliverance cry will be heard in his holy heaven.
By his mighty hand miracles will manifest
through his saving strength.
7Some find their strength in their weapons and wisdom,
but my miracle-deliverance can never be won by men.
Our boast is in Yahweh our God,
who makes us strong and gives us victory!
8Our enemies will not prevail; they will only collapse and
perish in defeat while we will rise up, full of courage.
9Give victory to our king, O Yahweh!
The day we call on you, give us your answer!
