Psalm 122: 6-9 “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love you. Peace be within your walls, and prosperity within your palaces. For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say, Peace be within you. Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek your good,”
Think about what you are praying as you pray for Israel and the Jewish people. God wants them to prosper as they know Him. He tells us to pray for peace in Jerusalem . He says to seek their good. How are you praying for Jerusalem? Ask Him to lead you. Also read Isaiah 62:6,7 “I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Jerusalem, who shall never hold their peace day not night; you that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence and give Him no rest, till He establishes, and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.” Would you like to be a watchman on the walls? Talk to Him about this and pray strength for those who are already watchmen chosen by our Lord.
Isaiah 62: “For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until its righteousness goes forth as brightness, and its salvation as a lamp that burns.
And the Gentiles shall see your righteousness, and all kings your glory: and you shall be called a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.
You shall also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
You shall no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall your land any more be termed Desolate; but you shall be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah: for the LORD delights in you, and your land shall be married.
For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall your sons marry you: and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you.
I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Jerusalem, who shall never hold their peace day nor night: you that make mention of the LORD, keep no silence.
And give Him no rest, till He establishes, and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
The Lord has sworn by His right hand, and by the arm of His strength, Surely I will no more give your grain to be food for your enemies; and the sons of the foreigner shall not drink your wine, for which you have labored:
But they that have gathered it shall eat it and praise the LORD; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of My holiness.
Go through, go through the gates; prepare you the way of the people; build up, build up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a banner for the people.
Behold, the LORD has proclaimed unto the ends of the earth, Say you to the daughter of Zion, Behold, your salvation comes; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and you shall be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.”
