So the assignment I had yesterday was to rewrite Psalm 122 making it about my church and my town instead of Jerusalem. It was just that a homework activity to get us to think about something in a different way NOT to take anything away from the beautiful scripture itself which we had spent the last two days studying it of course as it is! With that being said here was my rewriting:
I rejoiced with those who said to me, "Let us go to the Lone Star Cowboy Church." Our feet and hooves are standing in your gates, O Montgomery. Montgomery is a melting pot all its own, knit together as a single unit. This is where the cowboys, the lake-goers, blacks and whites alike go up - all the Lord's people - go up to praise the name of the Lord according to the law of the Word. There the arena stands, the fishing hole if you will, for our community. Pray for the peace and prosperity of Montgomery. May all who love this city (it's people) prosper. O Montgomery may there be peace within your town and prosperity in your government and economy. For the sake of my spiritual family and friends, I will say "peace be with you." For the sake of Lone Star Cowboy Church - the house of the LORD our God, I will seek what is best for you, O Montgomery.
