Psalm for Prayer - November 23, 2015

Psalm 122 - A Song of Ascents. Of David.

[1] I was glad when they said to me,
  “Let us go to the house of the LORD!”
[2] Our feet have been standing
  within your gates, O Jerusalem!

 [3] Jerusalem—built as a city
  that is bound firmly together,
[4] to which the tribes go up,
  the tribes of the LORD,
as was decreed for Israel,
  to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
[5] There thrones for judgment were set,
  the thrones of the house of David.

 [6] Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
  “May they be secure who love you!
[7] Peace be within your walls
  and security within your towers!”
[8] For my brothers and companions' sake
  I will say, “Peace be within you!”
[9] For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,
  I will seek your good.

(Psalm 122 ESV)
