I am glad to go up to the house of the LORD. I come boldly before your throne, O God. I stand within the courts of the Almighty by the blood of Jesus. I give thanks to your name, because from here is where judgment emanates. I pray for peace, Father. May your beloved be secure. Grant peace within our walls and peace within our towers. Peace be within our hearts and among our sisters and brothers to seek good for one another. I long for your presence in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good an perfect will. Amen.

“I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord!’” (Psalm 122:1 ESV)
