Praying for Peace

Shalom! May Yeshua bless you and keep you. May you forever be found living in the Truth of His Word. Shabbat Shalom

Sha’alu shalom Yerushalayim (pray for the peace of Jerusalem); they shall prosper that love thee.
Tehillim 122:6 OJB

To not pray for the safety, salvation, well-being, and prosperity of Jerusalem is to pray for your destruction.

A very common thing that is being done now in the face of devastation and sorry is to have ‘a moment of silence’. When faced with the horrific events of our day from man-made or natural events ranging from school shootings to suicide bombings, and hurricanes to fires, political, social and religious leaders are calling for a moment of silence. We will say nothing for 10 seconds or however long.

Haven’t we had a enough silence?

That teaching is to be politically correct, you know, sensitive to the beliefs of all people except those who trust in God.

News flash! The God of Heaven and Earth is not listening for political correctness. He is listening to the people who understand He is God and He is in control.

For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me. I am the Lord , and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord , and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

Isaiah 45:4‭-‬7 KJV

God is in control!

Now is not the time to be silent for Jerusalem. Now is not the time to be silent before the Almighty. Now is the time to cry out to the Great I AM. Now is the time to make your request known.

FYI the seed of Abraham, Issac and Jacob will survive and will prosper. I don’t want you to think that if you don’t pray, we will die and cease to be the people of God. That’s impossible! We will survive and prosper that is our heritage!

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem (the government) is also about you and your survival. As Mordici told Ester

For if you fail to speak up now, relief and deliverance will come to the Jews from a different direction; but you and your father’s family will perish. Who knows whether you didn’t come into your royal position precisely for such a time as this.” Ester (Est) 4:14 CJB

Our silence is our destruction!

Pray for Jerusalem and the Jewish people world wide. To war against Israel is to fight against the Almighty. Those people have already lost! Do not take up arms against God.

For thus saith the Lord of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.

Zechariah 2:8 KJV

Israel is very important to God! How important is Israel to you?

When we pray for the safety, salvation, well-being, and prosperity of Jerusalem we are praying for our relationship with The Most High God to be established. When we pray for the peace of Jerusalem we are praying for God to bless our families. When we pray for the peace of Jerusalem we asking God to cultivate our lives. When we pray for the peace of Jerusalem, we are choosing to live in the joy of God’s presence!

What happens to the people who don’t value what God esteems? Consider Esau and king Saul they didn’t value what God esteems and they were rejected. They didn’t want what was best for the people of God.

Sha’alu shalom Yerushalayim (pray for the peace of Jerusalem); they shall prosper that love thee.
Tehillim 122:6 OJB

El Elyon cover your people with your love and favor. Shield them from all those who hate them. Protect and guild the Children of Jacob. May the God of Heaven and Earth pour out His Salvation on Israel and all those standing with her! May we see your Redemption and Salvation in our lives and in the lives of our children now and forever!
