Reason number four to care about Israel: God tells us in Scripture to pray for Jerusalem
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May they prosper who love you. Psalm 122:6
Our God is a very intentional God and He, throughout Scripture, has helped us understand what is important to him. For example, He tells us to pray for our enemies, and to pray for and care about one another. Here in Psalms, He is giving us further direction and specifically telling us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Throughout the Bible God talks to us about Jerusalem more than 800 times. It’s important to Him and thus must be important to us.
