Today’s Reading:

Psalm 122, Esther 7:1-10, Rev 1:9-20


Jerusalem signifies the place of our God, the place where we go to meet with our maker, and our church where we gather together to commune with one another and God. We are the church and the people that make up the body of Christ, so it is very important we look out for our gathering. While the people of God were faced with the challenges of facing Haman and his wicked plans to deal with the children of Israel, Esther didn't just sit down and do nothing as the queen.

She did not only pray for victory over Haman, she acted by going before the king even when she isn't certain she will make it alive. More so, she was determined to put an end to the ordeal facing the people in her Jerusalem hence her presence before the king to invite the king for a banquet which led to the victory of the people of God over Haman. David would tell us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for the prosperity of Jerusalem and of course, he was always glad when they said to him. "Let us go to the house of the Lord". The house of God which is our Jerusalem is supposed to be our place of peace and prosperity, the place we do everything according to the will of God to make grow and remain flourishing. Like Esther and David, Let's work together to make the church accomplish the purpose of God towards it. The house of God is not a place we come to gossip or backbite, it's the dwelling of the people of God, it's a place of peace, love, serenity, sincerity etc.

As we come to the house of God, let's put in mind that it's the dwelling of the people of God and we are there to make the glory of God shine brighter in our lives, the lives of the people of God and everyone surrounding the church which is our Jerusalem.

Believers should know that:

  • The church is a sacred place of the Lord and nothing unclean should be found in it.

  • The church of God is meant to be peaceful, filled with prosperity, goodness and positive energy always.

  • The church is a place where we meet with people who we can bless and people that can bless us because of the presence of God in our mist.

  • They have the sole responsibility of praying for the growth, development, peace and expansion of the church as the body of Christ.

  • They have to be actively involved in putting their efforts to make the church of God move forward like Queen Esther and David.

  • The church is a place we come to make peace with ourselves and our inner spirit, doubt, fears and things that weigh us down.

  • There should always be gladness and rejoicing in the heart of believers when they are asked to be in their Jerusalem (church).




  1. Every spirit of lukewarmness that is not making believers to actively work to support the promotion of the Gospel and the growth of the Church, be destroyed, in Jesus’ name.

  2. Believers are conscious about the growth of the Church, and they are giving and working to move the Church forward, in Jesus’ name.

  3. Father raise the kind of queen Esther and King David that would support and rejoice at the growth of the Church, in Jesus’ name.

  4. We speak peace to every church facing crisis today, in Jesus’ name.

  5. I pray for this country, and I speak peace over the atmosphere, government, educational sector, in Jesus’ name.
