Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem








As "Cupbearer To The King", Nehemiah had a Responsible and Exalted Position Among the Servants of the King of Persia. Not only was he the Head Wine Steward, but it was his job to taste the King's food and determine if it was poisoned!
In this capacity, he developed an extremely trusted and intimate relationship with the King, and further reading will show that the King was very fond of Nehemiah as a Person, not just a Servant.
Nevertheless, upon hearing of the dire straits of those who had survived the destruction of Jerusalem and Solomon's Temple, and who were left behind as "unimportant" when the Jews were carried off to Babylon, Nehemiah is stricken with GRIEF over His People, and Over The Holy City.
His prayer is one of the most sincere and touching in the Scriptures, but is often overlooked in favor of the Towering Magnificence of the Psalms of David.
His prayer could be prayed today, for our own nation, with very few changes in wording.

“They are your servants and your people, whom you redeemed by your great strength and your mighty hand. 11 Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name.

Come and pray For the Peace of Jerusalem, For Our FRiends in Need, For Persecuted Believers, and for Our Beloved Nation.
