Psalm 122

As we head off for worship services this morning, whether to a big cathedral as pictured, to someone's living room, or to some place in between, let us consider Psalm 122.
Psalm 122
Let Us Go to the House of the LORD
A Song of Ascents. Of David.
1I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD!"
2Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!
3Jerusalem— built as a city that is bound firmly together,
4to which the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD,as was decreed for Israel,
to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
5There thrones for judgment were set, the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! "May they be secure who love you!
7Peace be within your walls and security within your towers!"
8For my brothers and companions’ sake
I will say, "Peace be within you!"
9For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your good.
