Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






The Shared Meal



(New Testament)

Matthew 14





Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand

13 When Jesus heard what had happened, he withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place. Hearing of this, the crowds followed him on foot from the towns. 14 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.

15 As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.”

16 Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”

17 “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered.

18 “Bring them here to me,” he said. 19 And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. 20 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.

(End of Scripture Passage)



This Miracle is the only one (besides the Resurrection of course!) that appears in all four of the Gospels. Like all eyewitness accounts, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John told the story from their own perspective. For Mark, who seemed to be writing for a news bulletin for the Romans, the account is brief, Cut and dried, and, as Joe Friday used to say, "Just the facts, Ma'am". Matthew, the former tax collector and a Levite, includes a lot of Scripture references, as if to document the story and solidify its legitimacy with his Jewish compatriots. Luke, a Physician with a Greek-sounding name, has tender observations about pregnancy, health, and the humanity of the people in his story. John comes across as a deep Theological thinker, emphasizing the Eternal Deity of Christ. Yet, these four men ALL include the Miracle of the loaves and fishes. There are even indications that Jesus did this particular miracle more than once.

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem





Our Father,
Who Art in Heaven,
How Blessed,
How Glorious,
How Wonderful,
Is Your Most Holy Name!
Your Ways are not our ways,
And yet we hunger and thirst for You,
like a thirsty little deer panting in the forest,
seeking a bubbling spring for a fresh sip of water!

We Pray For The Peace of Jerusalem,
According to Your Will and Promise.
We Pray For the People and Leaders of Israel,
that They Will Look to You for the Protection
and Prosperity of their Nation.
We Also Pray For Revival in our own Beloved USA.



We Pray For The Leaders of Our Nation,
May They Be Inspired and Led By You,
And Please Guide Them in All Things.

Blessings To All Who Visit This Garden of Prayer.



Hallelujah and Amen

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






It was a bright sunny day, and Mom needed to pick up a few things at the store. Dad had taken the car to work, so she put my baby sister in the stroller, had my little brother hold onto it with one hand and hold my hand with the other, and we proceeded to walk to the store at a rather slow pace, as Mom was expecting again. I had figured that out because I saw the "special vitamins" on her bureau, and she was starting to get a big belly. I had it all figured out! So there we were, a little caravan strolling through Ike's Post-War Baby and Building-Boom America, in a little neighborhood that resembled Leavittown, but was right in the City of Boston.

Everything was fine until we passed the house on the corner. It was the one with all the beautiful roses and the NO TRESPASSING signs posted every few feet.

The cranky woman who lived there was out in the yard, and when she saw us coming, she said out loud, "Oh gawd, she's PREGNANT again! Doesn't she know when to stop?"

Mom was devastated. She had never been exposed to such venom in her life and loved all of her children. It had never occurred to her that there was something wrong with having a big beautiful family.

As the years went by, Mom was again the target of malicious barbs , even from relatives, because she didn't have a "career". But, by this time, she had developed a thicker skin and was able to retort that her "career" was raising six wonderful human beings, none of whom were crazy, or criminals, and who all loved each other and their parents too.

Dad worked two jobs to support us, and we never wanted for anything. Sometimes money was "tight" but we always had dinner together around the big kitchen table. Like the Loaves and the Fishes, there was always enough.

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

"The counsel of the LORD stands forever, The plans of His heart from generation to generation. Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance..” Psalm 33 NASB

Numbers 6:23 Say to Aaron and his sons, This is the way you shall bless the Israelites. Say to them, The Lord bless you and watch, guard, and keep you; The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you; The Lord lift up His [approving] countenance upon you and give you peace (tranquility of heart and life continually). And they shall put My name upon the Israelites, and I will bless them.

And this we do, proclaim and agree in Jesus name. Amen.

As someone who has been a career woman (in engineering in a big company in Silicon Valley and elsewhere), now retired, looking back, I firmly believe good homemakers, mothers, wives have the most important job and have most positive impact on society. (And they are the most attacked.) They invest in eternity.

Joining in prayer, left that other site, for the Peace of Jerusalem and for revival in our beloved America.

Lol! Have you ever noticed that those most likely to pontificate are the ones most likely to have screwed up their own lives most royally? Think about all the would-be counsellors you’ve known. Heaven preserve us. :)

PRAYERS ASCENDING ON HIGH FOR
THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM!
And for the Preservation of the Valiant
Israeli Nation!



"The Miracle Of The Loaves And Fishes"
Tintoretto



HEN Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities.

And Jesus went forth, and saw a great mul-
titude, and was moved with compassion
toward them, and he healed their sick.
And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.

But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.

And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.

He said, Bring them hither to me.

And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.

And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children."
