My humble opinion is that the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem in particular are very dear to the heart of God, scripture proclaims these simple facts. The apple of God's very eye and His prophetic time clock before our own eyes, if we His people choose to see and hear.(Psalms 76:2; Psalms 134:3)

World history of this land through the sands of time from antiquity proclaims that when the Jewish people are in their land it's blessed. (Genesis 12:2)

History also proclaims that the nations and people who came against her were destroyed and or cursed by her keeper who does not slumber. (Ezra 6:12)

Today the nations of the world dictate to little Israel what she must give and do, the very things these nations would not do themselves! (Psalms 87:1)

God does not need us to help protect His precious city, remember He's the creator of all we know, really is there anything too hard for the Lord? 

In the time of king David the temple mount was a thrashing floor, a place of separation, that's still true today as a sifting of the wheat and chaff continues.
(2 Samuel 24:18; 1 Chronicles 21:22; 1 Chronicles 21:24)

I have told you in My Word many times and in many ways, that this people and their land are special to Me.(Psalms 2:6)

Choose who you will serve this day, let us choose wisely that which is pleasing to Him. (Genesis 12:3; Genesis 6:8)

We should pray for the peace of Jerusalem because it is the holy city of God. King David conquered the city from the Jebusites and established it as the United Kingdom of Israel (the Chosen people of God through Abraham). It as in Jerusalem where God dwelled in the Holy of Holies part of the Temple that King Solomon, the son of David built for God.

Jerusalem has been destroyed twice, besieged twice, attacked 52 times. Three major religions have claim to it, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It is divided into 4 quarters, Armenian, Christian, Muslim and Jewish.

Rev 12:1-17. All the nations will gather to destroy Jerusalem/Israel, but they will be destroyed by the Second coming of Jesus Christ at the end of the Tribulation period. 

Rev 21. Jesus will rein in Jerusalem for 1000 years (the Millinium) at his second coming as the Lion of Judah. During that period all people on earth will have to go to the Holy city of Jerusalem to worship Him. 

After the Millinium period, Satan will be let loose one more time, before He is cast into the Lake of Fire with the rebellious angels that followed Him, the Demons, the AntiChrist, the Beast and all who rejected Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Rev 21. Gal 4:26; Heb 11:10; Heb 12:22-24. God will create a new Earth and a New Jerusalem, which will come down from Heaven and all believers in His Son, Jesus Christ will live with Him forever more. Rev 22.

We pray for Jerusalem because it is God's Holy city and it is the name of the city where we will spend eternity with our Holy God.
