Psalm 122:6
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.Praying for the peace of Jerusalem is praying for the peace (shalom) of the CHURCH. We are NOW the Jerusalem of God, of which the earthly city was only a type.We are the Jerusalem CREATED by God. the NEW CREATION:
saiah 65:18
But be ye glad and rejoice forever in that which I
: for, behold, I
arejoicing, and her people a joy.
Barnes' Notes on the Bible:
 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem - The prosperity, the welfare of Jerusalem - for  peace is everywhere the image of prosperity and happiness. Compare Psalm51:18. This is the language which those who were going up to the city - to thehouse of the Lord - addressed to each other, expressing the joyful feelings of 
their hearts at their own near approach to the city. It breathes the desire that all would pray for the peace and prosperity of a city so dear to their own souls;where the worship of God was celebrated; where God himself dwelt; where justice was administered: a city of so much importance and so much influence inthe land.To us now it inculcates the duty of praying for the CHURCH: its peace; its unity;its prosperity; its increase; its influence on our country and on the world at large. It is a prayer that the church may not be divided by schism or heresy; that its members may cherish for each other right feelings; that there may be no jealousies, no envying, and no jars; that the different branches of the churchmay regard and treat each other with kindness, with respect, and with mutual recognition; that prosperity may attend them all.The shall prosper that love thee - Or rather, They shall have peace that love thee;or, May they have peace that love thee. The word prosper conveys an idea whichis not in the original. The Hebrew word means to be "secure," "tranquil," "at rest," spoken especially of one who enjoys quiet prosperity, Job 3:26; Job 12:6.The essential idea is that of quietness or rest; and the meaning here is, that thosewho love Zion will have peace; or, that the tendency of that love is to produce peace. See Romans 5:1.
