(A Psalm of David—A Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem)

(The Third Psalm in A Song of Ascents) (a)

[a] It is possible that the fifteen psalms (120-134) known as the
“Songs of Degrees or Ascents” were sung by the caravans of
pilgrims going up to attend the annual feasts at Jerusalem.
But it is equally possible that the title has reference to
some peculiarity in connection with the music
or the manner of using it.

PSALM 122 (1-9): I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD.” Our feet are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem–Jerusalem, that is built as a city that is firmly joined together, to which the [twelve] tribes go up–even the tribes of the LORD–[as was decreed as] an ordinance for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the LORD.

For there the thrones of judgment were set–the thrones of the house of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you [Holy City]. May peace be within your walls, and prosperity within your palaces.

For the sake of my brothers and my friends, I will now say, May peace be within you.

For the sake of the house of the LORD our God [which is Jerusalem], I will seek your–the Citysgood.

[The Meaning of Jerusalem]

PRAYER: Father God, we’ve now read what David prayed so long ago, about going with your people into the house of the Lord and standing within the gate of Jerusalem (which means seeing your wholeness, feeling the awe of your completeness, and therefore living in your peace), while living under the “old covenant.

Knowing that the “throne of judgment” has been shifted onto the shoulders of Jesus as part of the “new covenant,” we (whether we came into this world through the lineage of the Jews, or straight from the lineage of Adam) now come to you directly–holding to your love, in prayer.

We thank you for the fact that you have blessed us ALL with your faith and your grace, and that you have set us to prosper within that same wholeness, completeness, and peace. We therefore speak to ALL of your children, “Peace be within you.” We also pray that every single one of your children will learn more and more of, and then continue in, your ways–as a wonderful living CITY–your BODY–here on Earth.

Help us all to remember that you have purchased back for us, the authority to rule over the land you have provided for us, so that we may, by your power invested in us, preserve it in your LIGHT, which always chases away the darkness that the devil throws at us in his efforts to steal from us, kill us, and otherwise destroy us.

Thank you again, Father God, for your wonderful GOODNESS. AMEN!
