Psalm 122, Jerusalem, peace, security


Psalm 122:6-8 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within you citadels. For the sake of my family and friends,
    I will say, “Peace be within you.”

Jerusalem is the greatest city in Israel. It’s name means peace but it has been a city, in a country, that has seen much war. Even today, I read an article that Lebanon hurled rockets at Israels border. This psalm expresses that those who love and pray for Jerusalem will be secure or will prosper. Peace that her house is peace and that peace also be in your house.

Father, we pray for Jerusalem today. May peace be in her walls and security as her fortress. You Lord are our strong tower. You remain when the world melts like wax and men war for fun or fortune. We ask Lord for your protection for your people. We pray for your protection to be around those who love you and your people. Jesus would call the hearts of those who live in Israel to come to know you as the Messiah. That the name YESHUA would be on their lips and in their hearts. Deliver them Lord out of the hand of their enemies both within their walls and without. Deliver them Lord out of the grasp of the enemy of their souls. Father, I pray for peace over my heart and life also. I pray that you would lead me with quietness and security. I pray for your gift of blessing to be over my household and my children’s households, and my children’s, children’s household. I pray for all the generations of my family to follow the Lord and bless your people with their lips.

Thank you for praying and listening,
