Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






Our Father in Heaven, How Hallowed, How Holy,
How Sanctified and Glorious is Your Most Wonderful Name
Your Wisdom and Your Ways Are So Beyond Ours,
Your Justice and Your Righteousness and Your Holiness,
So Infinite and Beyond Our Poor Understanding,
Leaves us breathless!

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


Blessings To All Who Visit This Garden of Prayer.



Hallelujah and Amen

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






Two Trees appear in this pivotal passage in Genesis.

Jacob instructs his People to remove all of their foreign idols (including the symbols on their personal jewelry), and bury them under the Great Oak of Shechem. This is probably the same Oak under which Abraham received his Visitors. He then instructs them all to bathe and purify themselves. This is a remarkable gesture, as Moses and the Law were hundreds of years in the future.

As they go on their journey, Deborah, who was Rebecca's old nurse passes away. She is also buried under an oak, called "Allon Bakuth", or "The Tree of Weeping." The Tree is located at Bethel, where Jacob had his vision of the ladder to Heaven.

It is right after these two events that God changes Jacob's name. The burial of the idols indicated giving up the gods of the nations. The burial of Deborah was the giving up of the nomadic tribal life of a family and becoming a Nation.

"Jacob" means "trickster" or "Usurper".
"Israel" means "The one who wrestles with God".

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