Philadelphia, PA–Roads

Lamentations 1:4a (NLT)
The roads to Jerusalem are in mourning,
for crowds no longer come to celebrate the festivals.

Luke 19:37-40 (NLT)
When he reached the place where the road started down the Mount of Olives, all of his followers began to shout and sing as they walked along, praising God for all the wonderful miracles they had seen.

“Blessings on the King who comes in the name of the Lord!
Peace in heaven, and glory in highest heaven!”

But some of the Pharisees among the crowd said, “Teacher, rebuke your followers for saying things like that!”

He replied, “If they kept quiet, the stones along the road would burst into cheers!”

O Father,
What do the roads of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania say? Do they mourn or cheer? On this election day, we pray that the roads will give report of the Christians and Jews doing justice to other people, including future generations; loving mercy; and walking humbly with You.
We proclaim over the roads of Philadelphia,

“Blessings on the King who comes in the name of the Lord!
Peace in heaven, and glory in highest heaven!”

Amen.

Micah 6:8
