A King’s prayer for the coming King.
O God, make the king a godly judge like you
and give the king’s son the gift of justice too.
Help him to give true justice to your people,
honorably and equally to all.
Then the mountains of influence will be fruitful,
and from your righteousness
prosperity and peace will flow to all the people.
(Psalm 71: 1-3 TPT)
I never noticed until this week how often the Bible speaks of righteousness and peace being in relationship with each other. Our landscapes are shaped by both. Righteousness creates space for peace to flourish. Peace creates an environment for righteousness to grow.
