Reading: Psalm 122:6-9
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May those who love you be secure.
7 May there be peace within your walls
and security within your citadels.”
8 For the sake of my family and friends,
I will say, “Peace be within you.”
9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
I will seek your prosperity.
Thought for Reflection:
In a world where there is a lot of conflict and stress, Jesus said he leaves us peace – a peace that the world does not understand or know. Maybe that’s a peace that comes with security – the safety of having God live with you and travelling with you on the journey. Both as individuals and as a church, with God at the centre of our lives, we are safe.
Lord, in all the stress, worry or busyness of today, let me know your peace and security and help me to share that with the people I meet.
