April 6: Morning Prayer and Meditation on Psalm 122

1 I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.
2 Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:
4 Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the
name of the LORD. --Psalm 122.

Precious Father in Heaven, how much richer is our joy in your house than David knew, for his house
was the house of Moses, while ours is the house of the Lord Jesus Christ, the church that He has built
of living stone.

Shortly we will be going to the House of the Lord, which Paul said is the church, the pillar and ground
of the truth, the New Jerusalem which is above, the mother of us all. We joy in your church and will
not forsake her assembly.

We will stand within your government and covenant, the gates of your kingdom. Your covenant is
certain and sure and the church is one, compact together, through the preaching of the gospel and the
ministry that you have ordained from heaven: “From whom the whole body fitly joined together and
compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of
every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.” So wrote the Apostle Paul
of the church.

There in your church is the pillar and ground of the truth, the holy scriptures, the testimony that you
have given to your church, the testimony that can never fail. And we will give thanks unto the name of
the LORD for it is great. Amen and Amen. In Jesus Name.
