I mentioned to someone in a post early last week about how it seems the devil attacks us even harder on Sundays - trying to steal our joy and desire to worship the Lord. Suffice it to say, that is the case here this morning. Just wanted to post this psalm to remind me (and anyone else having "one of those days") to rise up and praise Him despite whatever challenges stand in our way!
1 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble; May the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
2 May He send you help from the sanctuary, And strengthen you out of Zion;
3 May He remember all your offerings, And accept your burnt sacrifice. Selah
4 May He grant you according to your heart's [desire,] And fulfill all your purpose.
5 We will rejoice in your salvation, And in the name of our God we will set up [our] banners! May the LORD fulfill all your petitions.
6 Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven With the saving strength of His right hand.
7 Some [trust] in chariots, and some in horses; But we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
8 They have bowed down and fallen; But we have risen and stand upright.
9 Save, LORD! May the King answer us when we call.
