Behold, I stand at the door, and knock if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Jesus Christ. John 1:17
For thy servants take pleasure in her stones,
For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.

For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.

Psalms 102:1 – 102:28

  1 A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before the Lord. Hear my prayer, O Lord, and let my cry come unto thee.
  2 Hide not thy face from me in the day [when] I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day [when] I call answer me speedily.
  3 For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth.
  4 My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread.
  5 By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.
  6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.
  7 I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.
  8 Mine enemies reproach me all the day; [and] they that are mad against me are sworn against me.
  9 For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping,
  10 Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.
  11 My days [are] like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.
  12 But thou, O Lord, shalt endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.
  13 Thou shalt arise, [and] have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.
  14 For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.
  15 So the heathen shall fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
  16 When the Lord shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.
  17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.
  18 This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord.
  19 For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the Lord behold the earth;
  20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death;
  21 To declare the name of the Lord in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;
  22 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the Lord.
  23 He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.
  24 I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years [are] throughout all generations.
  25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens [are] the work of thy hands.
  26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:
  27 But thou [art] the same, and thy years shall have no end.
  28 The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.

STATEMENT OF FAITH
We Believe…

In one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;

In the absolute deity and full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death for all through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory to judge the living and the dead;

In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is empowered to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ;

In the divine inspiration of all 66 books of the Old and New Testaments as originally given, guaranteeing their infallibility, entire trustworthiness, and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;

That all people are sinners and cannot save themselves. Salvation is received as a free gift of God’s grace, apart from works, through repentance and personal faith in the redemptive work of Christ and the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit;

In the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the eternal blessedness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost;

In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ who are thus members of His Body, the Church, whose work is the worship of God, perfecting the saints, and evangelization of the world.
