Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






Remember, when, in our Studies of Family in Scripture, we learned about Mephibosheth? He was the son of Jonathan who had been in a childhood accident and was handicapped. King David, in honor of his friendship with Jonathan, had given him a place at the Royal Table.
Now, However, there has been a political coup, and David is on the run. Ziba, a servant of Mephibosheth remembers the kindness of David and brings him provisions, but the other members of the family are not so gracious.

We have seen similar acrimony during transitions of political power in our own time.

The inspiring thing is David's reaction. To the one who helps, he is gracious and thankful. Although Ziba is a mere servant, he is now awarded Mephibosheth's estate.

As for the hateful abusers, David's response is that his own Family Sorrows outweigh anything this Benjaminite can do or say, and he shows mercy by not ordering the miscreant to be executed. Family issues can be overwhelming, but they should not cloud our judgement or make us bitter. We still have to live in the "Real World" no matter what happens.

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

Blessings To All Who Visit This Garden of Prayer.



Hallelujah and Amen

ML/LTOS
