This morning, our first stop was the walls of Jerusalem. The walls surround the Old City and have a walkway on them so you can literally walk around the walls of Jerusalem and practically invest in the city, nation and people as we prayed for Israel.
Before climbing to the beginning of the walkway, we discussed Jeremiah 31 and the word watchmen as it reads in this verse. Here, it literally means ‘to observe and preserve.’ As watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem we are to observe what the Lord is doing and to pray into it to preserve it….now if someone could just teach me the how to’s on observing!!
