Psalm 20
1May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble, *
the Name of the God of Jacob defend you;

2Send you help from his holy place *
and strengthen you out of Zion;

3Remember all your offerings *
and accept your burnt sacrifice;

4Grant you your heart’s desire *
and prosper all your plans.

5We will shout for joy at your victory
and triumph in the Name of our God; *
may the Lord grant all your requests.

6Now I know that the Lord gives victory to his anointed; *
he will answer him out of his holy heaven,
with the victorious strength of his right hand.

7Some put their trust in chariots and some in horses, *
but we will call upon the Name of the Lord our God.

8They collapse and fall down, *
but we will arise and stand upright.

9O Lord, give victory to the king *
and answer us when we call.

A Collect for Saturdays
Almighty God, who after the creation of the world rested from all your works and sanctified a day of rest for all your creatures: Grant that we, putting away all earthly anxieties, may be duly prepared for the service of your sanctuary, and that our rest here upon earth may be a preparation for the eternal rest promised to your people in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
