Psalms 122:7 


Peace be within thy walls and prosperity within thy palaces.




David called the Israelites to ask God to maintain Jerusalem in peace. They were to pray for God’s prosperity on all who wanted to preserve Jerusalem as the important center it was. They should also pray for the peace and prosperity of all who lived in the city. David himself prayed for the populace. He sought the welfare of Jerusalem chiefly because the house of Yahweh stood within it.


Jerusalem is and will remain the heart of all Israel as surely as Yahweh, who has His house there, is the God of all Israel. The welfare and continuity of places that are centers for the worship and work of God in the world should occupy the prayers of God’s people.


When you consider everything David said about his reasons for being glad to go to the house of the Lord, can you agree with Him? Do you share His reasons? Are you filled with rejoicing when it comes time to go to the Lord’s house? Or do you feel different emotions when you come to church?


Memory Verse: Job 29:18


Nothing can bring a real sense of security into the home except true love
