Prayer for Guidance and Support for the King
1Give the king your justice, O God,
and your righteousness to a king's son.2May he judge your people with righteousness,
and your poor with justice.3May the mountains yield prosperity for the people,
and the hills, in righteousness.4May he defend the cause of the poor of the people,
give deliverance to the needy,
and crush the oppressor.
5May he live while the sun endures,
and as long as the moon, throughout all generations.6May he be like rain that falls on the mown grass,
like showers that water the earth.7In his days may righteousness flourish
and peace abound, until the moon is no more.
