Sabbath Sanctuary: Pray For The Peace Of Jerusalem

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you. “May peace be within your walls, And prosperity within your palaces.” For the sake of my brothers and my friends,
I will now say, “May peace be within you.” For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
I will seek your good
{Ps. 122: 6-9 NASB}. 

Today is the The Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem. I encourage everyone on this Sabbath weekend, to take a moment and pray for the peace of Jerusalem. The Land of Israel is so amazing. I was there in 1992 and am growing anxious to return. There is something about being in Jerusalem that is hard to explain. But the experience will forever remain in my heart!

On the first Sunday of every October, hundreds of millions of people around the world join together to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. According to the DPPJ site, this event has quickly become the largest Israel-focused prayer event in history. The  day of prayer started in 2002 to raise global awareness and intercession for God's purposes in Israel. 

God has marvelous plans for the Jews and the land of Israel, written for us to remember and pray in His Word. Please take a moment today and pray that the Messiah be revealed to Israel, and that God’s purposes for His people come to fruition, and that truly, the peace that only the Messiah can give, will rest upon Israel. 

Rest in the presence of God this Sabbath weekend. Saturday at sundown completed the Day of Atonement, and now we look forward to the Feast of Tabernacles, which we will celebrate one day in Jerusalem with the Lord.
