Father, I pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May they prosper that love you. Peace be inside your city walls and prosperity within your palaces.

A word received: I AM calling my people back to me. They have wandered in a desert place. There is no moisture there and they perish for lack of my Holy Spirit. Pray for my people to return to me. I AM calling — listen to me my people. Return to me. I AM he who can nourish you. Return to me.
