Daily D – Psalm 122:6-7
Pray for the well-being of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be secure; may there be peace within your walls, security within your fortresses.”
PSALM 122:6-7 (CSB)
Politicians are going to politick. Malevolent nations are going to interfere. Entrenched foes are going to destroy and retaliate. Innocent people will suffer and die.
Talking heads on news broadcasts will blame this one and that one. They will note how these problems have continued for thousands of years.
Boys and girls, men and women, are dying. Rockets and rocks and rifles are deployed making bad situations worse.
Only God is wise enough and powerful enough to bring peace and healing to Israelis and Palestinians, to Iranians and Arabs, to Shiites and Sunnis, to Jews and Christians.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
I will pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
Our Father, please bring a halt to the fighting. Please stop the bloodshed. Please provide healing and hope. Please bring peace to Jerusalem. Amen.

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”
Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”
Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
