Pray for peace

Psalm 122

Chapter Summary

Pray for peace

In Bible times, people thought God lived in the temple. Only sometimes did they grasp the reality that God, as Solomon said, could not dwell in human-made dwellings. Today we know better, but still our church homes are very special to us. Pray for the peace of your church and your town.

Day 248

Dear Lord, please help me to be a peacemaker for my church, my home, and my community.

Psalm 122:11

Psalm 122


122 I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.

Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:

Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the Lord.

For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.

For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.

Because of the house of the Lord our God I will seek thy good.
