Psalm 20, retold

The Beloved speak peace to you in the day of trouble! The Eternal, the blessed, protect you!

May help come from above, and give you support from the people. May all your kindnesses return to you, tenfold.

So be it! Amen!

May your heart be comforted, your spirit uplifted, your every plan succeed. May the Divine voice reach your ears every day, and the holy angels serenade you to sleep each night.

I know that Beloved will help God’s people; responding with tender love and powerful encouragement: all will be well.

All is well! Amen!

Some delight in conflict, some are thrilled by violence, but our pride and joy is the Source of All Love, the One, the Eternal.

They will collapse and fall, but we shall rise and be strong.

Give swift victory to your servant, O Beloved, O Bright, surrounding Joy.

It is so! Amen!
