Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.” For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, “Peace be within you.” For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your prosperity. Psalms 122:6-9
There’s no earthly reason that the national of Israel should be in existence today. An entire religion of one billion people plus half that many leftists hate Jews and Israel. The only logical explanation for Israel’s survival is that God has His hand on that nation, and people are actively praying for it. You can say that it’s the American might and money behind the protection but that would be misleading because Israel itself has had to defend herself against the Arab World in 1967 and 1973. Israel fought the battle; Israel won the battle. God obviously confused the minds of Israel’s enemies then, and He still does today.
I don’t quite understand the logic or theology of it (and I’m sure several readers will enlighten me), but I do sense there has been a supernatural protection over that nation since its existence these last 4000 years (and something we’ve been able to witness for 60 years).
As the maniacal leader in Iran openly threatens to obliterate Israel and its people, we need to pray that Israel will experience peace. The following is the blessing nations get for doing just that:
“May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.”
