Psalm 122:6 commands us, "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May those who love you be secure." But what does it mean to pray for the peace of Jerusalem? What does God intend us to do or say when we pray? This week on The Land and the Book, you’ll enjoy a practical conversation about an ancient command. Plus, Charlie Dyer’s devotional takes us to The Battles at the Pool of Gibeon. Don’t miss The Land and the Book!
