Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem








Our Lord and our God
Sometimes, Your Refining Fire is SO Hot!
Sometimes, It Feels as though we will not make it through!
But Your Word promises that we will never be tested beyond our capacity to endure,
And That You purify us through these ordeals,
That we might be powerful witnesses and reflections of your Glory.
Purity us, Oh Lord,
And in doing so,
Make Us More Like You With each passing Day!

We pray for the Repentance, Restoration, and Renewal of Our Beloved Nation.

He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, And purge them as gold and silver, That they may offer to the LORD An offering in righteousness.

We Pray For The Peace of Jerusalem.
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 Plead For Israeli Control Over All the Holy Sites in Israel,
so that All Faiths may visit them.
We Pray For Bibi Netanyahu, 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.

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






As a young Graphic Design Major in College, I would often wander down to the back of the school, where the sculptors, metal-workers, and glass-blowers had their furnaces. Even when the wind-chill factor was below zero, it was always hot around the outdoor kilns. The Silversmiths seemed to have the hardest job. The glowing metal actually SMELLED nasty as the impurities were burned off. Then, the purified liquid was poured into a mold, absolutely obliterating the wax form inside.
When The LORD Purifies our souls, it is a harsh and difficult process. Nasty things are exposed and removed, much like the smelly impurities in the metal. Old wax forms and patterns of behavior must be burned away completely, leaving only the silver. And then the silver must be polished and refined, so that the Lord can see HIS Face reflecting back at Him, like a mirror.


We pray for the Repentance, Restoration, and Renewal of Our Beloved Nation.

He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, And purge them as gold and silver, That they may offer to the LORD An offering in righteousness.

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

Pray for the Peace and Protection
Of Jerusalem and ALL of Israel

~Malachi 3:3~
"He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver."

This verse puzzled some women in a Bible study and they wondered what this verse implied about the character and nature of God.

One of the women offered to find out the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible Study.

That week, the woman called a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn't mention anything about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of refining silver.

As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were the hottest so as to burn away all of the impurities.

The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot; then she thought again about the verse that says:
"He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver."

She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to sit there in front of the fire the whole time the silver was being refined. The man answered that, "Yes, he not only had to sit there holding the silver in the fire, but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the fire. If the silver was left a moment too long in the flames, it would be destroyed.

The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith, "How do you know when the silver is fully refined?"

He smiled at her and answered,
"Oh, that's easy -- when I see my image in the silver."

Nasty things are exposed and removed, much like the smelly impurities in the metal.

That's all those things and times, we thought we were right. And if we knew to do it His Way - we can now see how things would have been different for ourselves and/or for those around us. God is always right and we are not.

I can see how it could be smelly because it certainly leaves one wanting to hide that we don't even want to see that root of rot in ourselves.

While in the garden, praying for others in harm's way, or in need or less fortunate - God blesses us with a message. We can never out give God. As we pour out, HE continues to pour in - even the knowledge of more smelly refinement needed.
