Peace of Jerusalem
Father, in the name of Jesus and according to your Word, I long and pray for the peace of Jerusalem, that its inhabitants may be born again. I pray that You, Lord, will be a refuge and a stronghold to the children of Israel. Father, Your Word says “multitudes, multitudes are in the valley of decision” and whoever calls upon Your name shall be delivered and saved. Have mercy upon Israel and be gracious to them, O Lord, and consider that they fight for their land to be restored. You, Lord, are their Strength and Stronghold in their day of trouble. We pray that they are righteous before You and that You will make even their enemies to be at peace with them. Your Word says You will deliver those for whom we intercede, who are not innocent, through the cleanness of our hands. May they realize that their defense and shield depend on You.
We thank You for Your Word, Lord, that You have a covenant with Israel and that You will take away their sin. They are Your beloved. Your Word also says that Your gifts are irrevocable, that You never withdraw them once they are given and that You do not change your mind about those to whom You give Your grace or to whom You send Your call. Though they have been disobedient and rebellious toward You, Lord, we pray that now they will repent and obtain Your mercy and forgiveness through Your Son, Jesus. We praise You, Lord, for Your compassion and Your forgiveness to Your people. We praise You that they are under Your protection and divine guidance, that they are Your special possession, Your peculiar treasure, and that You will spare them; for we have read in Your Word that all Israel shall be saved!
Thank You, Father, for delivering us all from every evil work and for the authority You have given us with the name of Jesus. We love You and praise You. Every day, with its new reasons, do we praise You!
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May they prosper that love you, “the Holy City!” Peace be within your walls and prosperity within your palaces! Amen.
