Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






The Acts of the Apostles



(New Testament)

Acts 28





Paul Preaches at Rome Under Guard

17 Three days later he called together the local Jewish leaders. When they had assembled, Paul said to them: “My brothers, although I have done nothing against our people or against the customs of our ancestors, I was arrested in Jerusalem and handed over to the Romans. 18 They examined me and wanted to release me, because I was not guilty of any crime deserving death. 19 The Jews objected, so I was compelled to make an appeal to Caesar. I certainly did not intend to bring any charge against my own people. 20 For this reason I have asked to see you and talk with you. It is because of the hope of Israel that I am bound with this chain.”

21 They replied, “We have not received any letters from Judea concerning you, and none of our people who have come from there has reported or said anything bad about you. 22 But we want to hear what your views are, for we know that people everywhere are talking against this sect.”

23 They arranged to meet Paul on a certain day, and came in even larger numbers to the place where he was staying. He witnessed to them from morning till evening, explaining about the kingdom of God, and from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets he tried to persuade them about Jesus. 24 Some were convinced by what he said, but others would not believe. 25 They disagreed among themselves and began to leave after Paul had made this final statement: “The Holy Spirit spoke the truth to your ancestors when he said through Isaiah the prophet:

26 “‘Go to this people and say,
“You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
    you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.”
27 For this people’s heart has become calloused;
    they hardly hear with their ears,
    and they have closed their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
    hear with their ears,
    understand with their hearts
and turn, and I would heal them.’[a]

28 “Therefore I want you to know that God’s salvation has been sent to the Gentiles, and they will listen!” [29] [b]

30 For two whole years Paul stayed there in his own rented house and welcomed all who came to see him. 31 He proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ—with all boldness and without hindrance!

Footnotes:

1. Acts 28:27 Isaiah 6:9,10 (see Septuagint)
2. Acts 28:29 Some manuscripts include here After he said this, the Jews left, arguing vigorously among themselves.


(End of Scripture Passage)



Thus concludes The Book of Acts. But The Story Continues, both through the subsequent Letters of Paul and other Apostles, and in the hearts of believers up to this very day.

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem





Bless the LORD,
Oh My Soul,
and let All That is Within Me Bless His Most Holy Name!
Abba, Father,
We Praise and Worship You,
You Alone Are Worthy of Worship and Praise,
For You Alone Are The One True God,
As the Nations Rage So Furiously Against You,
And Against Your People,
We Know That You Are Our Shelter,
Our Strength and our Song,
Our Refuge in Times of Trouble,
Our Rock and Our Redeemer!

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

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



"Roman Ruins with Saint Paul Preaching"
Giovanni Paolo Panini




it came to pass, that after three days Paul called the chief of the Jews together: and when they were come together, he said unto them, Men and brethren, though I have committed nothing against the people, or customs of our fathers, yet was I delivered prisoner from Jerusalem into
the hands of the Romans.
Who, when they had examined me, would have let me go, because there was no cause of death in me.

But when the Jews spake against it, I was constrained to appeal unto Caesar; not that I had ought to accuse my nation of.

For this cause therefore have I called for you, to see you, and to speak with you: because that for the hope of Israel I am bound with this chain.

And they said unto him, We neither received letters out of Judaea concerning thee, neither any of the brethren that came shewed or spake any harm of thee.

But we desire to hear of thee what thou thinkest: for as concerning this sect, we know that every where it is spoken against.

And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening.

And some believed the things which were spoken, and some believed not.

And when they agreed not among themselves, they departed, after that Paul had spoken one word, Well spake the Holy Ghost by Esaias the prophet unto our fathers,

Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive:

For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.

And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.

And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him,

Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.

_______________________________________________Acts 28:17-31 (KJV)

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem




Typical Roman Road in Pompeii

Everybody has a dream. My dream, which at this point in my life will probably never happen (oh Well) is to ride across America on my Harley. The most important part of the journey of my dreams is to ride Rt 66, The Famous "Mother Road" of American Legend. Since my bike, Rt 66, and my body are all old and falling apart, I guess I will have to live my dream in a song I wrote several years ago. Here are the Lyrics:

THE MOTHER ROAD
by ML/LTOS c1995

My girlfriend lives in Missouri, on the outskirts of St. Lou.
She fights the River every spring, like all her neighbors do
She's been to Tahiti, and she loves to figure skate.
She says I'll always have a place to sleep if I'm ever in her state.

(CHORUS)
I'll always have a place to stay
When I ride the Mother Road.
At every stop along the way,
I find an open door.
My friends all think that I'm crazy,
But They love me anyway.
And when I ride that Mother Road,
I'll always have a place to stay.

My cousin lives near Tulsa, right off Rt 66,
In the home town of Will Rogers, in the Oklahoma sticks.
There ain't a musical instr'ment that the gal can't play!
She says I'll always have a place to sleep, if I'm ever out that way.

(CHORUS)
I'll always have a place to stay
When I ride the Mother Road.
At every stop along the way,
I find an open door.
My friends all think that I'm crazy,
But They love me anyway.
And when I ride that Mother Road,
I'll always have a place to stay.

(Bridge)
Old Motel on the auction block
Ancient Symbols carved in the rock
Big empty sky, except for a hawk
Looks like someone turned back the clock!
(instrumental solo)

My uncle lives in Texas, and that's music to my ears.
He once traced his ancestry back to the Trail of Tears
he likes to sleep in the desert, and dance out under the stars.
He says I'll always have a place to sleep "IF I EVER GET THAT FAR!"

(CHORUS)
I'll always have a place to stay
When I ride the Mother Road.
At every stop along the way,
I find an open door.
My friends all think that I'm crazy,
But They love me anyway.
And when I ride that Mother Road,
I'll always have a place to stay.


I printed out the words of this song as our "goodbye" to The book of Acts. Paul and the other Apostles traveled on the best roads the Ancient World could offer and always found a place to stay among believers wherever they went. There were those who thought they were a little "crazy" but they were ALWAYS a force to be reckoned with and impossible to ignore. The Book of Acts ends abruptly here, but the Journey continues.

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

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”
Lamentations 3:22-24 (NIV)

God Bless America!

Blessings To All Who Visit This Garden of Prayer.

It was a great journey through the Book of Act! Here’s an idea. . .why don’t you and your bike do a documentary cross country. Maybe a Christian network would be a sponsor.

Go do it ! Maybe take a car (for backup) and your bike and go do your dream of riding Route 66. A nice month to go would be May. You don’t necessarily have to take the interstate, but the lesser roads, and hit some of the sights along the way. Don’t just dream it, go do it !
