And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it. (Luke 19:41)
Jesus was so moved with compassion over a city, that He wept. He wanted Jerusalem to be transformed—to be awakened—so He wept and prayed.
The transformation of a city doesn’t automatically happen. It is prayed into being by people who see their city as God sees it and by people who have truly bought into the land they are living on. Transformation will not happen if we don’t love the land we possess; it will only happen when we lay hold of God’s intended destiny for our city and don’t let go!
