And so Lord we pray Maranatha, Come Lord Jesus – come Thou long expected Jesus – come to set Your people free - come and to set up Your promised rule on earth, for Lord we know that without You there can be no peace on earth and only an increase in the ragings of the nations against Your people Israel and Your holy city of Jerusalem.
