Psalm 20 is a royal psalm (or psalm of prayer) which was addressed to the king. The psalm may have been publicly recited as the king prepared to lead an army to battle. The psalmist hopes for God’s protection and blessing on the king. It’s important to pray for our leaders and people in authority. How often do you take time to pray for those that “have rule over you?”
