Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






The Prophet Zechariah



Chapter 11



1. Open thy doors, O Lebanon,
that the fire may devour thy cedars.

2. Howl, fir tree; for the cedar is fallen;
because the mighty are spoiled: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan;
for the forest of the vintage is come down.

3. There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds;
for their glory is spoiled:
a voice of the roaring of young lions;
for the pride of Jordan is spoiled.

4. Thus saith the LORD my God;
Feed the flock of the slaughter;

5. Whose possessors slay them,
and hold themselves not guilty:
and they that sell them say,
Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich:
and their own shepherds pity them not.

6. For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land,
saith the LORD:
but, lo, I will deliver the men every one into his neighbor's hand,
and into the hand of his king:
and they shall smite the land,
and out of their hand I will not deliver them.

7. And I will feed the flock of slaughter, even you,
O poor of the flock. And I took unto me two staves;
the one I called Beauty, and the other I called Bands;
and I fed the flock.

8. Three shepherds also I cut off in one month;
and my soul loathed them,
and their soul also abhorred me.

9. Then said I, I will not feed you:
that that dieth, let it die;
and that that is to be cut off, let it be cut off;
and let the rest eat every one the flesh of another.

10. And I took my staff, even Beauty,
and cut it asunder,
that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people.

11. And it was broken in that day:
and so the poor of the flock that waited upon me knew that it was the word of the LORD.

12. And I said unto them,
If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear.
So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.

13. And the LORD said unto me,
Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them.
And I took the thirty pieces of silver,
and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD.

14. Then I cut asunder mine other staff, even Bands,
that I might break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.

15. And the LORD said unto me,
Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd.

16. For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land,
which shall not visit those that be cut off,
neither shall seek the young one,
nor heal that that is broken,
nor feed that that standeth still:
but he shall eat the flesh of the fat,
and tear their claws in pieces.

17. Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock!
the sword shall be upon his arm,
and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up,
and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






Our Father,
Who Art in Heaven,
How Wonderful and Magnificent is Your Most Holy Name!
For You Alone Are Worthy,
you Alone Are Holy,
You Alone Are The Most High!
Omnipotent,
Omniscient,
And Omnipresent,
You Know The End from the Beginning
and the Beginning from the End.
We Bless Your Name and Thank You,
Most Gracious and Hallowed LORD,
For Your Holy Word,
While Sometimes cryptic and disturbing,
Is Always true and Mighty,
and Cuts to the Heart of Things like a Two Edged Sword!

Once again, Father, as we read of the Glory departed from Your Temple,
and the Lovely Cedars and fir timbers burned to the ground,
We mourn with Your People at the huge cost of turning away from You.
The Years of Captivity,
and Separation from You,
and the Desolation of those who do not Remember You,
The mere thought of it is unbearable.

How Long, Oh LORD, will the evil shepherds be allowed to flourish in our own land?
We have seen, throughout history,
that those nations who curse Your People end up crumbling to dust very shortly thereafter.
And thus, Dear Father,
I fear for my OWN Beloved Country,
because of the evil shepherds that have taken over!

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

LORD WE BOW IN REVERANCE BEFORE THEE, OPEN OUR EYES THAT WE MAY SEE THY TRUTH ... Forgive us our sins, we are surrounded by voices telling lies, and misdirecting our understanding.

We praise Thy goodness, righteousness, tender mercies, loving kindness, grace, the blessing showered upon us daily. Give us strength, and energy to be Your disciple to those we meet each day. We ask mercy on America. Increase our faith. we ask protect from evil and the evil one. Show us Thy works everyday. We honor, love, praise and adore Thee for Thy gracious love and protection in this world. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
