Prayer for Rescue and Prosperity.

1 A Psalm of David.
Blessed be the Lord, (A)my rock,
Who (B)trains my hands for war,
And my fingers for battle;
My lovingkindness and (C)my fortress,
My (D)stronghold and my deliverer,
My (E)shield and He in whom I take refuge,
Who (F)subdues (a)my people under me.
O Lord, (G)what is man, that You take knowledge of him?
Or the son of man, that You think of him?
(H)Man is like a mere breath;
His (I)days are like a passing shadow.
(J)Bow Your heavens, O Lord, and (K)come down;
(L)Touch the mountains, that they may smoke.
Flash forth (M)lightning and scatter them;
Send out Your (N)arrows and confuse them.
Stretch forth Your hand (O)from on high;
Rescue me and (P)deliver me out of great waters,
Out of the hand of (Q)aliens
Whose mouths (R)speak deceit,
And whose (S)right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
I will sing a (T)new song to You, O God;
Upon a (U)harp of ten strings I will sing praises to You,
Who (V)gives salvation to kings,
Who (W)rescues David His servant from the evil sword.
Rescue me and deliver me out of the hand of (X)aliens,
Whose mouth (Y)speaks deceit
And whose (Z)right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
Let our sons in their youth be as (AA)grown-up plants,
And our daughters as (AB)corner pillars (b)fashioned as for a palace;
Let our (AC)garners be full, furnishing every kind of produce,
And our flocks bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our (c)fields;
Let our (AD)cattle (d)bear
Without (e)(AE)mishap and without (f)(AF)loss,
Let there be no (AG)outcry in our streets!
How blessed are the people who are so situated;
How (AH)blessed are the people whose God is the Lord!
