Weekly Watch Focus: Pray for Jerusalem—The City of our God

Friday, OCT 11, 2013 Psalm 48 calls Jerusalem the “city of our God.” Ps. 122:6 tells us to “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: ‘May they prosper who love You.’” Jerusalem has a special place in the heart of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. May we follow His instruction and pray for Jerusalem and the nation of Israel. Let us freshly commit ourselves to daily prayer for the peace of Jerusalem and release angelic protection to watch over Israel and defend her borders. May those who plan terror and destruction against Jews and against Jerusalem be confused and completely defeated.

God has promised to bless those who bless Israel and prosper those who love Jerusalem. We desperately need God’s blessings for our nation and prosperity for our economy. May we as individuals and as a nation faithfully pray for an undivided Jerusalem and stand with Israel in order to appropriate the blessing and favor God promises for those who bless the apple of His eye.

Ps. 122:6-7, Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you. Peace be within your walls, prosperity within your palaces.”

Gen 12:3, I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.

Is 35:10, And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with singing, with everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Ps 137:4-6, How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land? If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill! If I do not remember you, let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth—if I do not exalt Jerusalem above my chief joy.
