Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem

Image
Wednesdays here on the blog are dedicated to prayer for Jerusalem.

 Father, We come before you today to ask your blessings on Jerusalem and all of Israel.

We pray that in the days ahead you will burden our hearts more and more for Israel and teach us how to pray.

In your Word we are told to pray for the peace of Israel and we know that you are peace--the only true peace comes from you-- We pray that you would protect Israel from those who would want to destroy her, who would want this country wiped from the face of the map.

When her enemies stretch forth their bows, may their arrows fall short--

And not only that, Lord, but that her enemies would have miraculous encounters with you--we pray that You would make Yourself real to them in visions and dreams, in encounters that we cannot even imagine.

Let your blessings flow unbounded--may many come to know You, even today.

Thank you so much for the readers of this blog from that part of the world.

Be gracious and compassionate towards th…

Pray for the Generations

It's late but it is still Monday and we don't want to let the day go by without bringing our precious ones before the Lord in prayer.


Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day for darkness is as light to you.
Psalm 139:7-12
Oh God, for the beloveds, the precious ones I pray today--
Lord, I pray that your Spirit will go with everyone of them for every day of their lives.  I pray that Your presence would stay close to them--that they would not want to flee from Your presence but will seek You out with all of their hearts for  every day of their lives.

Peonies are one of my favorite flowers.

I featured one shot of them yesterday but just couldn't get enough of their beauty so thought I would show you the rest of the photos I took.













Hope you enjoy--wishing you a wonderful Tuesday!

Praying for the Generations

On Mondays here on the blog we pray for the generations to come after us.

 But I will call on God, and the Lord will rescue me. Morning, noon, and night I cry out in my distress, and the Lord hears my voice. from Psalm 25

 Heavenly Father,
Here I am again asking, seeking, knocking for my children, my grandchildren, my seed, my descendants, my extended family, the children and grandchildren of my precious friends.

Lord, I pray that each one of them will learn to cry out to you in their good times and bad, in their distress, and as Daniel did--praying to you morning, noon, and night.

Lord, you see the things and people I am burdened for and I pray that You will resolve these situations according to Your perfect will.

You are the only answer, Lord, to our deepest heart's cry--we need You, we cannot survive without You.

 Please send Your Spirit to minister to us, to love, comfort, convince and convict us.

We need You as we have never needed You before. Please make Your presence kno…
