    My daily prayer for you Chess Queen.

    For You Chess Queen I will post this comment every day so please don't delete it.

    Prayer for Victory
    A Psalm of David.

    JEHOVAH answer thee in the day of trouble;
    The name of the God of Jacob set thee up on high;
    Send thee help from the sanctuary,
    And strengthen thee out of Zion;
    Remember all thy offerings,
    And accept thy burnt sacrifice; [Selah
    Grant thee thy heart’s desire,
    And fulfil all thy counsel.
    We will triumph in thy salvation,
    And in the name of our God we will set up our banners:
    Jehovah fulfil all thy petitions.
    Now know I that Jehovah saveth his anointed;
    He will answer him from his holy heaven
    With the saving strength of his right hand.
    Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;
    But we will make mention of the name of Jehovah our God.
    They are bowed down and fallen;
    But we are risen, and stand upright.
    Save, Jehovah:
    Let the King answer us when we call.
