PRAYING THE PSALMS, PART 3B
Psalms are poems that were songs sung to God Almighty. In the five books that comprise the Psalms, we find the emotional spectrum that all humanity encounters at one time or another. The Psalms give us glimpses of ordinary men called to do extraordinary things. God’s grace is also His ability to empower us to do extraordinary things through Him.
In this message, we begin by looking at five situations in David’s life that led to Psalms. Then we look at five Psalms of Peace (numbers 6 – 10 in this list). As we learn to use the images created by these Psalms, we are building ourselves up and creating a hedge of protection around us. By the words that we speak, we can speak words of faith that God can confirm. So let us pray these Psalms in faith.

Philippians 4:6–7 NKJV
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 NKJV
Pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Special Scriptures: The service has been separated into three parts. We encourage you to feast on this three course meal!
Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
