Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






Jerusalem In The Scriptures

1 Samuel 17

41. Meanwhile, the Philistine, with his shield bearer in front of him, kept coming closer to David. 42. He looked David over and saw that he was little more than a boy, glowing with health and handsome, and he despised him. 43. He said to David, “Am I a dog, that you come at me with sticks?” And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. 44. “Come here,” he said, “and I’ll give your flesh to the birds and the wild animals!”

45. David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. 47. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.”

48. As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. 49. Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground.

50. So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him.

51. David ran and stood over him. He took hold of the Philistine’s sword and drew it from the sheath. After he killed him, he cut off his head with the sword.

When the Philistines saw that their hero was dead, they turned and ran. 52. Then the men of Israel and Judah surged forward with a shout and pursued the Philistines to the entrance of Gath and to the gates of Ekron. Their dead were strewn along the Shaaraim road to Gath and Ekron. 53. When the Israelites returned from chasing the Philistines, they plundered their camp.

54. David took the Philistine’s head and brought it to Jerusalem; he put the Philistine’s weapons in his own tent.

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem








Dear Father In Heaven,
How Hallowed is Your Most Wonderful Name!
We Love You With Our Whole Heart
With Our Whole Soul
With Our Whole Strength
And With Our Whole Being.
You Alone Are Worthy of Worship
You Alone Are The One true Holy and Righteous God.
Rock of All Ages,
Our Creator,
You Have Made Us,
and All That Is.
Teach us day by Day
That it is Not by Might,
Not by Power,
But By Your Spirit That We Shall Overcome.

All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.

We Pray for Our Own Leaders in America,
May They Speak Comfort to Jerusalem.
May We NOT be Numbered Among Israel's Enemies, God Forbid!
We Pray For The American People,
May They NOT be Deceived by the Media.
May Their Eyes be Opened with regard to God's People Israel.

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,

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

HALLELUJAH AND AMEN

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem







In the Familiar Story of David and Goliath, there is a hidden gem of Information...JERUSALEM is Already the most important city (if not the Capital City) of Israel.

It is where the head of Goliath is displayed, and probably the headquarters of King Saul.

All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.

Come and Pray For The Peace of Jerusalem, For Our FRiends in Need, For persecuted Believers, and For Our Beloved Nation.

David was led by The Lord. Don’t try this on your own presumption.

“Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead”

Notice the two distinct things that happened here: 1. David slung the stone and it struck Goliath in the head. 2. The stone then proceeded to sink into Goliath’s forehead.

David did his part and then God did his part y pressing the stone with his thumb. He’s stronger than David.

And, of course, David gave the LORD 100% of the credit, as evidenced in this passage.

O Lord to have the faith of David. Meeting the enemy in assurance the Lord Almighty will deliver Goliath into his hands.
____________________________________________________________
I heard a saying last evening, on ‘God's Learning Channel’ that I like very much,

“L I F E” ... Life ... “Living in Faith Everyday!”
___________________________________________________________

” 45. David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. 47. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.”
____________________________________________________________

Everyday we are to live in faith. We are surrounded by evil, false belief, fear, lies, twisted accusations, many distractions doing everything possible to keep us off balance.
Our Nation is under the power of the enemies of America, and the enemies of God.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:10-18

King James Version (KJV)

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Be strong, walk with God, in Jesus name amen.
