(Full) Psalm 122 KJV- I was glad when they said unto me

(Full) Psalm 122 KJV- I was glad when they said unto me

Pastor Yemi Adebanjo Pastor Yemi Adebanjo

I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.

Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:

Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the Lord.

More Psl. 122 (Old Testament)

For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.

For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.

Because of the house of the Lord our God I will seek thy good.


Thought for the day: Always pray for where you live



Today, we shall be using Jerusalem as a metaphor for our dwelling place, our community and our home country. Looking through this verse, the motive behind it is for people to pray for where they live. Since the writer and the original receiver lives in Jerusalem, the name Jerusalem was mentioned. This means you can apply this scripture to your house, your community, your city and your home country.

Also, the writer wants us to know that your word has impact.

Truthfully, it is becoming alarming that people see praying for their country as a waste of time. We complain about bad leaders, bad government, bad infrastructure and many others things. In the country where I am, you will see many young and vibrant youth, sitting at the newspaper stand daily to argue, but nothing has changed since they have been complaining.

  • I wish we can change and turn our complaints to prayer.
  • I wish we would call God’s attention to the issues in our home and our country.
  • I also wish that we would report the lawlessness and atrocity going on to God.

Our prayers can do great things. They can make an impact, turn lives around, and give us good leaders.

See the scripture:

For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.

And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name.

Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God. Isaiah 62:1-3

Don’t stop praying until the peace of God shines forth on the land.

My Counsel

Ø  Don’t be comfortable with things that are happening in your country. Please pray.

Ø  Your complaint cannot change anything, it will only cause bitterness of heart. Turn it into prayer.


Father, I pray for the peace of my home, my community and my nation in Jesus' Name.
