Day 17—The Day of Remembering Israel
“Lord may your peace and blessings be on Jerusalem”
“Jehovah Elohe Yisrael”
(The Lord God of Israel – Psalm 41:13)
“Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen and Amen.” Psalm 41:13
Read: Psalm 41 & Psalm 122
I must not continue this consecration O Lord, without my focus including your original chosen nation.
So on today I lift to you and pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May I always remember to include them in my times of intercession and thanksgiving. I pray that your peace will invade both their natural and spiritual realms. I pray that Jerusalem as a whole will begin to know and love your Son Jesus as their Saviour - thus receiving the true peace that only He can afford them. May they enjoy the benefits which result from a “peaceful mindset”… which has developed a spiritual appetite and acceptance of your Holy Spirit.
Let me always remember that I have at my disposal that most powerful weapon available to assist my brothers and sister in Jerusalem. That weapon being prayer.
So, may we obey your word as recorded: “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you. Peace be within your walls, Prosperity within your palaces.” For the sake of my brethren and companions, I will now say, “Peace be within you” (Psalm 122:6-8).
“May I also come into agreement with these words of Matthew Henry in regards to the peace of Jerusalem:
“Let us consider all who seek the glory of the Redeemer, as our brethren and fellow-travelers, without regarding differences which do not affect our eternal welfare. Blessed Spirit of peace and love, who didst dwell in the soul of the holy Jesus, descend into his church, and fill those who compose it with his heavenly tempers; cause bitter contentions to cease, and make us to be of one mind. Love of the brethren and love to God, ought to stir us up to seek to be like the Lord Jesus in fervent prayer and unwearied labour, for the salvation of men, and the Divine glory.”
I decree and declare that it is so…..In the name of Jesus. Amen
