It is written:
“Pray for shalom in Yerushalayim; may those who love you prosper. May shalom be within your ramparts, prosperity in your palaces.” (Psalm 122:6-7 Complete Jewish Bible)
First and foremost Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) is and ALWAYS will be Israel’s Capital. This is a fact, and fact is the only True Foundation for a just and lasting Peace.
For us Believers in the Messiah Yeshua, who can do nothing else for the Peace of Yerushalayim, we must earnestly Pray for it, for the welfare of it, for all good to it, particularly for the uniting of the inhabitants among themselves and their preservation from the incursions of enemies.
Yes, the Peace and welfare of Yerushalayim and of the Land of Israel, is to be earnestly desired and Prayed for by every one of us.
In seeking the welfare of Yerushalayim, we seek our own, for so well does YAHWEH Love the gates of Tziyon (Psalm 87:2) that He will Love ALL those that do love them, and therefore we cannot but prosper; at least our souls shall prosper by the ordinances we so dearly love.
So let us Pray for Yerushalayim, not out of custom, nor for fashion’s sake, but out of a principle of Love to YAHWEH, the Elohim of Isra’el, the KING of the Universe, our Elohim and AVINU MALKENU (Heb. אָבִינוּ מַלְכֵּנוּ; “Our Father, our King”).
YAHWEH, our AVINU SHE-BA-SHAMAYIM (Heb. אָבִינוּ שָׁבַּשָׁמַיִם; “Our Father in Heaven”), Rock and Redeemer of Israel, Bless Yerushalayim and the State of Israel.
I Pray for ALL the inhabitants in general, all within the walls, from the least to the greatest. Peace be in the walls of Yerushalayim and if they be attacked, let them never be taken, as You are “The Effectual Security” to the City.
Strengthen the hands of those who defend Your holy Land, grant them Deliverance, and adorn them in a mantle of Victory. Ordain Peace in the Land and grant its inhabitants Your Salvation and Eternal happiness.
Manifest Yourself in the splendor of Your Boldness before the eyes of all inhabitants of Your world, and may EVERYONE affirm that You, YAHWEH, Elohim of Isra’el, are KING and Your Dominion is ABSOLUTE.
In the Name of Your Beloved Son, the “Hebrew and Jewish Messiah Yeshua”. Amen.
