PRAYING THE PSALMS, PART 7
Thy Word Is A Light. When we fill our spirits with the Word of the Living God, when we go through trials and trauma—and it’s been a traumatic year—we surround ourselves with the hedge of His protection. Praying the Psalms is an avenue into increasing our prayer life and giving God’s Word back to Him. There are some key words that we see in Psalms 119 that can give us a clearer understanding of the meaning in other Psalms. The key words that we want to focus on is law, testimonies, precepts, statutes, commandments, and judgments. The precepts of God’s Word are all designed to enable us to grow in wisdom and understanding and to come into a close relationship with the Lord. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on March 21, 2021.
1 Thessalonians 5:16, 17, 18 NKJV
Pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Psalm 119:105 NKJV
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
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.”
