Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem
Wednesdays here on the blog are our special prayer time for Jerusalem and all of Israel.
We are admonished in scripture to pray in this manner. We want to be faithful to pray for the "apple of God's eye."
We come before You today in obedience to your instructions to us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
We pray for all the people who inhabit the land--for their peace, their provision, their salvation.
We pray that You will be honored in the land--that Your Name will be great.
We pray that preparations are being made at this very moment to anoint Jerusalem to receive and bear witness to all the prophecy that You have made over her.
We pray that she will shine for You and that many will come to know You in this remarkable land on which our Savior walked.
We pray that You will protect her from all who would want to wipe her coordinates off the face of the map.
My heart is especially heavy for the lands of Syria and Iraq today, especially for the Christians there who are being persecuted in horrendous ways, even to death.
Father, come to their rescue. Show us how to pray for them and ways that we can help.
Give us boldness where boldness is needed--
Courage where bravery is scarce--
Humbleness in the face of pride--
Love to love the unloveable--
In the great Name of Jesus we pray,
