Psalm 122:1 I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD.”
Jews, Christians, and Muslims each call this place holy, and sometimes share the same locations as holy. It’s inspiring and disheartening all at once to see so many people of faith pray and sometimes battle in one tiny place. This psalm also urges us to “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” Indeed. If people of faith could, by God’s grace, find ways to get along in this holy place, who knows how the world might be transformed...
Pray fervently for the peace of Jerusalem.
