May 28: Restoration of the Land

When speaking of the Land of Israel, one immediately thinks of Jerusalem.  Jerusalem the place where God chose to put His name.  Jerusalem and worship cannot be separated.  Therefore as we pray for the restoration of the Land of Israel we cannot ignore the need for the restoration of the people to the City of the Great King – Jerusalem. (Psalm 122:6)

Deuteronomy 12:10-14: 

But when you cross over the Jordan and dwell in the land which the Lord your God is giving you to inherit, and He gives you rest from all your enemies round about, so that you dwell in safety, then there will be the place where the Lord your God chooses to make His name abide. There you shall bring all that I command you: your burnt offerings, your sacrifices, your tithes, the heave offerings of your hand, and all your choice offerings which you vow to the Lord. And you shall rejoice before the Lord your God, you and your sons and your daughters, your male and female servants, and the Levite who is within your gates, since he has no portion nor inheritance with you. Take heed to yourself that you do not offer your burnt offerings in every place that you see; but in the place which the Lord chooses, in one of your tribes, there you shall offer your burnt offerings, and there you shall do all that I command you.

Psalm 51:18-19:  

Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion;
 build the walls of Jerusalem. Then You shall be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness.
