This verse has been on my heart for some time. So I decided to check it out in different translations.
So wonderful to read different ways of saying the same thing. Many miss out on the fullness of scripture because of the legalistic way they view it. Just read some of these, and allow them to inspire faith in your heart. We serve a faithful God that answers our prayers mightily!!!
The first two are my favorite versions!

You answer us by giving us victory,
and you do wonderful things to save us.
People all over the world
and across the distant seas trust in you.
