Saturday Psalm #122

Abba, what joy I feel
when it is time to worship in your house,
among your people!

What a blessing it is to stand in your presence,
where you love to bless sincere worshipers.

Build your church like a fortified city,
like Jerusalem:
closely compacted together,
comprised of all tribes and tongues,
always ascending into your presence
to praise your name.

I pray for the peace of your people everywhere:
May those who love them be secure.
May there be peace within their walls
and security within their homes and meeting places.
May peace and prosperity fall upon them and flow from them,
in Jesus' name, amen.
