David wrote this Psalm to be sung as the people entered Jerusalem to worship at the Feasts. As we prepare to welcome the New Year and celebrate the Fall Feasts, let us remember – “We are those Worshippers!” We are going up to the House of the Lord and from that place we declare Peace and Prosperity to Jerusalem. May all who live there dwell in His safety and know the awesomeness of His Presence!
Psalm 122, TPT
A song of the stairway, by King David
I was overjoyed when they said,
“Let’s go up to the house of the Lord.”
And now at last we stand here, inside the very gates of Jerusalem!
O Jerusalem, you were built as a city of praise,
where God and man mingle together.
This is where all the tribes of Yahweh are required
to come and worship him.
This is where the thrones of kings have been established
to rule in righteousness;
even King David ruled from here.
Pray and seek for Jerusalem’s peace,
for all who love her will prosper!
O Jerusalem, may there be peace for those
who dwell inside your walls
and prosperity in your every palace.
I intercede for the sake of my family and friends
who dwell there, that they may all live in peace.
For the sake of your house, Yahweh
I will seek the welfare and prosperity of Jerusalem.
