The Lord does answer us in our times of trouble. There are so many testimonies of the love and care we experience from our Lord. The following Psalm is a powerful support for us as well as a wonderful prayer for those we know who are doing life tough.

“May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
May he send you help from the sanctuary and give you support from Zion!
May he remember all your offerings and regard with favour your burnt sacrifices!
May he grant you your heart’s desire and fulfil all your plans!

May we shout for joy over your salvation, and in the name of our God set up our banners!
May the Lord fulfil all your petitions!
Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with the saving might of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand upright. O Lord, save the king!
May he answer us when we call.”                   Psalm 20:1-9, ESV.
