Pray For The Peace Of Jerusalem~Origins




I will Bless Those Who Bless Thee.

The Book of Genesis

Chapter 12

1. Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee:

2. And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

3. And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

4. So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.

5. And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

6. And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.

7. And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.

8. And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he builded an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD.

9. And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.

10. And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land.

11. And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon:

12. Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive.

13. Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.

14. And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.

15. The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.

16. And he entreated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she asses, and camels.

17. And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram's wife.

18. And Pharaoh called Abram and said, What is this that thou hast done unto me? why didst thou not tell me that she was thy wife?

19. Why saidst thou, She is my sister? so I might have taken her to me to wife: now therefore behold thy wife, take her, and go thy way.

20. And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him: and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.

Pray For The Peace Of Jerusalem~Origins




The Ziggurat at Ur, Original Home of Abram, near Babylon, Iraq

Oh LORD, Our God, How Wonderful, How Excellent, How Glorious is Your Most Holy Name!
How True is Your Word, and How Mighty!
How Glorious, to Span the Milennia,
To be Unfettered by Time and Space,
To Know The End from the Beginning
and the Beginning from The End!
Because, Indeed, You ARE The Beginning and the End of All Things!
For it is You, Oh LORD,
Who designed the Galaxies with Your Compass,
And Mapped Out the Vast Reaches of Space With Your Word
and Your Omniscient Imagination!
Scientists tell us even the heavens are finite.
But YOU are Infinite!
Fancy Ceremonies and Florid Speeches do not impress You,
For Your Have Told us You desire Obedience, not Sacrifice,
And without Faith, it is Impossible to please You.
LORD, remind us ALWAYS to Worship You,
and not Your Creation.
Although it is a Huge temptation,
As Your Works are so Wonderful!
Let us always remember,
Your creation is there but to proclaim YOUR GLORY.
Hallelujah and Amen.

Father, just as Abram was called out of his comfortable, familiar city,
and told to go to "God Knows Where",
We sometimes are called of You to do things that are not logical at all.

1. Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee:

2. And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

3. And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

4. So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.

LORD, Elsewhere in Your WORD, You tell us that Abram BELIEVED You and that was imputed to him as Righteousness!
We plead with You now, for THAT kind of Faith!

7. And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.

Why, Dear Father, do so many people deny the very ROOTS of Our Civilization,
and the Foundations of Our Faith?

We Thank You, LORD, For Your Holy Word,
Eternal and Unchanged through the Ages.
Giving us the Path of Redemption,
A Heritage and a History,
A Handbook for Living,
Daily Inspiration in Times of Trouble,
And A Glimpse into Future Events!

We Thank You For the Jewish People.
Who in spite of Exile and Dispersions,
Inquisitions and Forced Conversions,
Persecutions and Expulsions,
Pogroms and Holocaust,
Have managed to survive to this day.
We thank you for this Precious Rose, thorns and all.
Thank You for the Many American Jews are waking up to the deceptions and lies of the left.
We Thank You For That Blessing LORD.
We knew it was only a matter of time, and more will come.
We also thank You for the Steadfast Conservatives of the Jewish Faith,
who have stood firm, when all have seemed to stand against THEM

We Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem,
According to your Will and Promise.
We Pray for the Citizens of Israel,
that they can live in their neighborhoods
without having to worry about rockets hitting their children.

Father, We Thank You For The Remnant who Continue to Support Israel,
despite the political Climate.
We ask you to protect and defend them.

Number us NOT with those who whisper lies to Your People.
Those who say "Peace and Safety" out loud,
but who inwardly plot against You and Your Beloved!
We ask You to Intervene in the Affairs of Nations,
And Change the Direction of Our Own.
We Plead With You, That Our Leaders will be Led by Your Spirit
with regards to Our Own Country's Policies Towards Jerusalem,
Or That You Will Remove Them.
We Also Pray that you will remove the spirit of idolatry
That has invaded the politics of our Nation.
We beg For You To Replace The leaders Who Seize Power
Only to feed Their own EGOS, and NOT to Serve the People or the Constitution.

We pray for an END to Lies, Slander, Blood Libel,
Propaganda, and Antisemitism against Your Beloved.
We Pray For An End to Slavery, Hostage-Taking,
and Piracy wherever it is Practiced Around the World.
We Beseech You on Behalf of Our Captive Brethren,
Christians and Jews, In Bondage in Hostile lands,
Especially in Egypt, Somalia, Europe, Pakistan, Iraq and Iran,
and even in Our Own United States, where we see Persecution on the rise.

We pray also for the lost Children of Esau and Ishmael,
That they will throw down their weapons,
And embrace the One True God of Abraham,

For We Know, It is NOT Your Will that ANY Should perish,
As You have said in Your Word.

We Plead For Israeli Control Over All the Holy Sites in Israel,
So that People of All Faiths may visit them.
We Pray For Bibi Netayahu, and the Leaders of Israel
May They Receive Wisdom from You to do the Right Thing.

We Pray For The Swift and Sure Coming of Messiah,
Blessed Be He,
To Establish His Kingdom,
and Make All Things Right.

It is interesting and rather amazing that ... Abram believed God and obeyed Him and God spoke to Abram along the way; yet when he went to Egypt he thought to protect himself by asking Sarai to say she was his sister and not his wife. God was with him ...

This is an on going mistake we make over and over again and again. We have the idea we must control our circumstances and provide protection for our self.

When we walk with God as Abram did and David did, and Moses did, and Joseph did, and Daniel did, etc. We are trusting God to make the way. Keep us safe, and provide our needs.

Thank You, O LORD for the truth of Your Word, for the purity, faithfulness, and absolute sovereign promise of Your Presence and protection as we rest in Your hands. Forgive us our weakness, and our failing to turn our life into Your hands, We love You LORD for Your righteousness, You are all good, almighty, Most high God, of love, mercy, kindness, redemption, salvation, peace, hope, eternal life and for Jesus Christ Your Son and the Holy Spirit. All praise and glory, and honor, and worship are Yours. Keep us on the path, in the light You have for us, and help us be in You will, always. Bless Israel, Jerusalem,the Jewish people, and the scattered that do not know they are Jews, and Your remnant, persecuted believers in the world, the lost, Muslims,the church, America, and all who seek to find You and Know You, in Jesus name I pray. amen.

You certainly have THAT right, Geologist! As we go along in Genesis, we shall se that every time Abraham and Sarah try to "Help God Out" with their own little schemes and plans, it backfires BIG TIME! OUCH!

Thank you for your powerful prayer.
