Psalm 122 V.5-6
A song of ascents. Of David
There stand the thrones for judgment,
the thrones of the house of David.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May those who love you be secure.
The Songs of Ascent in Psalms (Psalms 120-134) contain much to encourage those who seek to worship God. Especially now, when so many are bewildered or frightened by the Covid-19 pandemic. How we react personally and as a fellowship of God’s people to the pandemic will define us in all sorts of ways, perhaps in ways we cannot yet see nor understand. So, we stand to be judged at some point. Although we too might be fearful about the pandemic, for loved ones, for ourselves and those we know, we are encouraged to pray for peace – that we might know peace – and that those we love will be secure.
Lord, in praying for peace and for security, help make me an instrument of your peace to others.
