because of Psalm 47's use on Ascension Day, that's where my mind was when I first prayed it.  But then "Reading the Psalms with Luther" made the connections for me to the OT (Joshua 6) and NT (Acts 10) readings.  Luther connects Psalm 47's trumpets to Jericho (and Christ's victory over evil) in the intro, and in the prayers asks that salvation be spread to all nations (Hello Cornelius!)
