Prayer for National Victory after Defeat
1 To him that excelleth upon Shushan Eduth, or Michtam. A Psalm of David to teach. When he fought against Aram Naharaim, and against Aram Zobah, when Joab returned and slew twelve thousand Edomites in the salt valley. O God, thou hast cast us out, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been angry, turn again unto us.2 Thou hast made the land to tremble, and hast made it to gape; heal the breaches thereof, for it is shaken. 3 Thou hast shewed thy people heavy things; thou hast made us to drink the wine of giddiness. 4 But now thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of thy truth. Selah. 5 That thy beloved may be delivered, help with thy right hand and hear me. 6 God hath spoken in his holiness: therefore I will rejoice, I shall divide Shechem, and measure the valley of Succoth. 7 Gilead shall be mine; and Manasseh shall be mine; Ephraim also shall be the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver. 8 Moab shall be my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; Palestina shew thyself joyful for me. 9 Who will lead me into the strong city? Who will bring me unto Edom? 10 Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off, and didst not go forth, O God, with our armies? 11 Give us help against trouble, for vain is the help of man.
12 Through God we shall do valiantly, for he shall tread down our enemies.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
