Pray and Prosper

support_israelWith Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu visiting now in the U.S., it is well to remember that Israel’s King David declared: “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. They shall prosper that love thee.”(Psalm 122:6)

Praying for Jerusalem is not praying for a city, with its limestone buildings glistening in the sun. Nor is it to be petition for the citys religious sites, holy to three world religions.

Rather, prayer for the peace of Jerusalem is for Gods protection over the lives of the citizens (Jews and Non-Jews) of this holy city on a hill. It is praying for spiritual revival and renewal of God’s grace on this whole region. It is prayer for the defeat of demonic forces by holy angels, in a battle that can not be seen with natural eyes. (Ephesians 6)

America has been blessed because of its benevolence toward the modern nation of Israel. We can ill afford to turn our backs on Abraham’s chosen descendants. Let us all pray and act for the peace of Jerusalem and then claim righteous prosperity for our nation and people, as promised in God’s word!
