God has asked us to “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem,” and He meant it. All we have to do is turn on the News, and you will always find Israel right in the middle of everything that is going on. Most of the time, according to the News’ standards, Israel is being portrayed as the “bad guy” while the “Palestinians” are known as “a people without a country.” Because of this disinformation being pronounced almost on a daily basis, people in the world have a dim view about Jerusalem and Israel.
This is not a political article at all. We are talking about an expanse of land Almighty God gave to a specific, hand-picked people: the Jews. He meant it to be theirs forever; it’s as simple as that. The world, however, refuses to accept the fact that Israel was, is, and shall forever be, the apple of God’s eye. This explains throughout history why so many nations have continuously come against them. Let us not be concerned about what they subscribe to; that is not important at this time. What is of great magnitude is how the good Lord obligated His people to obey His commands, and to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
Like any good parent, when a child needs corrections, the Holy One of Israel has always done the right thing with His child, Israel. He did not need any help from the enemies of Israel then, and He certainly does not need their assistance today. Abraham was the first Jew, and because of his obedience, the Lord God Almighty said this to him in Genesis 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you. In you will all of the families of the earth be blessed.”
God chose Jerusalem to be His Holy City before the foundation of the world. He has obviously seen something good and peculiar about the city of Jerusalem. What are those things that are peculiar about that city? I believe that only God is able to answer that question. Since it is the City of God, we should be mindful to pray for the peace of Jerusalem in obedience to His instructions, because it says in Psalm 122:6, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.”
It is believed that peace could be attributed to the name of Jerusalem; lift up your voice and pray that the condition of peace assigned her will validate her suspense and veracity of true peace. God unquestionably would anticipate His children to intercede for the true peace of His beloved city, Jerusalem. This prayer must not be a one-time thing, but an unending flowing of rivers with continuous prayers. In other words, the procession must be encored, so it is desirable of peace; peace of mind, happiness, joy with riches, ought to be projected and anticipated. Almighty God has made His residence in no other place than His house, which is located in Jerusalem.
As a result, God is right there waiting for you to bring your supplication to Him on behalf of the peace of Jerusalem. By obediently praying for Jerusalem you will harvest the peace of God and genuine prosperity will be reaped upon you from the Eternal Rock of Ages; not the false hopes which only a sin sick world can offer.
The peace of Jerusalem must not experience any type of affliction. May your heart, soul and mind be centered on God alone when you enter into His Holy presence. Peace in the house of God ought to be on the apex of your hearts in every aspect of your daily prayers. With fervent prayers God Himself shall rain down the sprinkling of peace upon you. Those who pray in this manner will prosper who love thee and it does not matter whether you regard this as a promise or as a prayer. Furthermore, prayer is the medium of obtaining God’s promises, and promises are the soil and soul of prayers which is like a sweet-smelling aroma in the nostrils of GOD.
Prosperity of soul will be enjoyed by those who pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and those who convey a keen enthusiasm for the nation of Israel. These are men and women of peace who will receive His peace in all of their holy dealings. God’s people pray for them, and God Himself delights in them for doing so.
Prosperity and the blessings of God will come to those who demonstrate a strong affinity towards the city of Jerusalem.
A prime example is the house of Obededom which was tremendously blessed. Why was this man so blessed? He did what other people would not do because they were afraid of sudden death. When King David discovered those tremendous blessings saturating over the house of Obededom, he decided to bring the Ark of the Covenant back to his palace because he wanted all of the blessings for himself! Who could challenge the King of Israel, or who does not want beautiful things for themselves? This is the reason why you need to pray for the peace of Jerusalem! If God was present and gave his abundant blessings to Obededom then, He most certainly is more than able to do the same today because you are reverently praying for the peace of Jerusalem. God is the same yesterday, tomorrow and forever.
If so, then you will need to change your perspective of God’s requirement in praying for the peace of Jerusalem. However, if you fail to pray, I must openly inform you that you will have no share in her prosperity. Moreover, peace of mind which surpasses human comprehension may not be yours after all. If you do not take the time to obey God’s command to pray for the peace of Jerusalem due to your hectic schedule, it could be an indicator to question your genuine veracity of your love for God.
Discipline yourself and ask the Lord to assist you in developing a loving heart for Israel – no other way will do but to love Israel and pray for her. You must do your very best to ignore the cumbersome, unfavorable and hostile news regularly disseminated by the news media worldwide about Israel.

And whosoever remaineth in any place where he sojourneth, let the men of his place help him with silver, and with gold, and with goods, and with beasts, beside the freewill offering for the house of God that is in Jerusalem.

There have been mighty kings also over Jerusalem, which have ruled over all countries beyond the river; and toll, tribute, and custom, was paid unto them.
Now when the copy of king Artaxerxes' letter was read before Rehum, and Shimshai the scribe, and their companions, they went up in haste to Jerusalem unto the Jews, and made them to cease by force and power.

And to carry the silver and gold, which the king and his counsellors have freely offered unto the God of Israel, whose habitation is in Jerusalem,
And all the silver and gold that thou canst find in all the province of Babylon, with the freewill offering of the people, and of the priests, offering willingly for the house of their God which is in Jerusalem:
That thou mayest buy speedily with this money bullocks, rams, lambs, with their meat offerings and their drink offerings, and offer them upon the altar of the house of your God which is in Jerusalem.
The vessels also that are given thee for the service of the house of thy God, those deliver thou before the God of Jerusalem.
Blessed be the LORD God of our fathers, which hath put such a thing as this in the king's heart, to beautify the house of the LORD which is in Jerusalem:
Watch ye, and keep them, until ye weigh them before the chief of the priests and the Levites, and chief of the fathers of Israel, at Jerusalem, in the chambers of the house of the LORD.

The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. 17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. 18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. 19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones.
