Dear Brother Cijoy,
You have touched a very interesting and profound subject on the basis
of Psalms 51.
Before going on the subject let me ask you, how is your sister's child, is she/he better? And what about your problems at the office? I am referring to your message# 12696 in this Forum. It is very consoling when we hear that our prayers are heard.
Dear Cijoy, as we all know, Psalms 51 was a prayer of repentance said
by the great King David in his distress. Please read 2 Samuel:12
onwards to see what made King David to submit himself to God in prayer and repentance. King David was praying with an emotionally collapsed heart when Prophet Nathan told him that he was going to be punished for his sin and also after hearing the news of the death of his son who was born to the wife of Uriah. One may think that King David was praying to see the wall built around the City of Jerusalem, but in contrary, the prayer was about the emotionally collapsed walls of his own contrite heart. For us, the people of New Testament, the prayer is about the walls of heavenly kingdom(the celestial Jerusalem of all fortunes) being built where we all are suppose to be the particles as sand, pebbles, stones etc. and the king in that kingdom is Son of God, our Lord Jesus Christ. As the subject is very profound and deep to penetrate I am concluding here in prayers.
With Best Regards,
Babu Jacob Nadayil

building of walls of Jerusalem. Is it the wall of sadness which we can
see in modern day Jerusalem. Lord gave this to me. In the Revealation
21 (18,19 ,20) mentions wall made of jasper which surronds new
Jerusalem. That is the true wall . I hope I & you will be there to see
