May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
May he send you help from the sanctuary
and give you support from Zion!
May he remember all your offerings
and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah
May he grant you your heart's desire
and fulfill all your plans!
May we shout for joy over your salvation,
and in the name of our God set up our banners!
May the LORD fulfill all your petitions!
Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed;
he will answer him from his holy heaven
with the saving might of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
They collapse and fall,
but we rise and stand upright.
O LORD, save the king!
May he answer us when we call.

Jacob’s God kept him safe, as promised. Jacob’s God provided a large family. Jacob’s God blessed him with wealth in livestock. Now, as Jacob headed home, God would give him peace with his brother and victory over his enemies, who were encroaching on the land God had given him. Psalm 20, tells us to praise and thank the God of Jacob. We are to pray asking God for guidance, safety, and blessings on our leader. The bottom line for us today is: Do you believe that the God of Jacob will provide for you?
