Our 15-part pilgrimage through the Psalms of Ascent continues with Psalm 122 which reminds us to ascend the steps to the house of the Lord and to pray for peace and prosperity within its walls. Join Lanie Beth as she leads us through this Psalm of Ascent that serves as a beautiful reminder that the church is to be a shining beacon in the city center — a place of love, hope and security for all who take shelter there.

Psalm 122

I rejoiced with those who said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD." Our feet are standing in your gates, O Jerusalem. Jerusalem is built like a city that is closely compacted together. That is where the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, to praise the name of the LORD according to the statute given to Israel. There the thrones for judgment stand, the thrones of the house of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels." For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, "Peace be within you." For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your prosperity.
