Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem

2 Comments

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. “ – Psalm 122:6

God requires all Christians from every nation, every background, to be concerned about the pGod of Compassioneace of one particular city. That city is Jerusalem. Those words of exhortation to prayer are addressed to all people of God who believe the Bible and love the Jewish people who God used to give us Jesus the Messiah and the Holy Scriptures. God adds a beautiful promise: that if we love Jerusalem and pray for her peace, we shall prosper. That word translated “prosper” means not only material prosperity, but it also means to be at ease, to be relaxed, to be free of worry and concern and care. And the secret of that is being united in heart with God’s purpose for the Chosen People.

God’s purpose is peace and blessing and restoration for Jerusalem and for the nation of Israel, and when we unite in prayer with God’s purpose then we enter into His plan of prosperity and peace. We are at rest in a world of turmoil. It’s for our own good that we are concerned for the peace of Jerusalem, because when Jerusalem enjoys peace, all nations will enjoy peace. And until that time no nation can enjoy true and lasting peace.

  1. Blessings brother, totally agree with all above, the Lord once said to me ” Steve you be concerned with My business and I will be concerned for yours” Just one little thing that caught my attention was “Jewish people who gave us Jesus the Messiah and the Holy Scriptures.” im sure its just a choice of words brother, “Through the Jewish people” bears witness with my spirit ! Love in the Lord brother, in Jesus Name

  2. Brother Steve…Thank you for pointing out this oversight on my part. It is true that “through the Jewish people” should be the correct wording. The LORD God alone gives us Jesus the Messiah, and the channel of His blessing came through the Jewish people. Blessings, Pastor Luis.
