150 Days of Psalms: Psalm 20


You can read Psalm 20 here.

This Psalm is a prayer for a friend.  Davis is asking for favor on behalf of someone else's battle instead of his own.

I think this is something important and something we should do regularly... Pray for others.  When we do this we are sharing in another persons life.  We are asking God for help or blessing or thanks for them.  We also do this with them.  We stand together in prayer.

I also think that verse 7 is particularly amazing.  It shows so much of the attitude of the world.  They fight a physical battle.  They fight with weapons and cause trouble.  But we have God.  We trust in him and we know that he has our backs.
