Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 09/18/11

This week’s scriptures are from Psalms and Zephaniah:

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem …”  (Psalm 122:6)

“The LORD your God is with you,
he is mighty to save …”    
(Zephaniah 3:17)

The enemy rises up against us; nations rise against nations, but the God who called Abraham, the God who delivered Israel out of Egypt, the God who sent His son to die for us is not a God who will abandon His people. Though the sabers are rattling and the dogs of war are howling to cut loose, the Lord has already spoken. His people know: This is the time to call out to God, to pray for the peace of Jerusalem; this is the time to pray for His people Israel wherever they may be, for we are His people, we are His handiwork, we belong to Him, and He is mighty to save, mighty to save.

May God bless you as you pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for His people Israel.
