Say My Name at the Prayer Wall

Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
Joshua fought the battle of Jericho
and the walls came a-tumbling down
Welcome to the House that Dignity Built. I’m Dr. Daintee Glover Jones, and I consider it an honor and a privilege to have a moment to speak with you for our January 8th message of our 2016-17 series called “The Sum of Peace”. For the months of January and February, our speakers will be on one accord by speaking and teaching about the concept of peace and protection. The title of today’s message is called “Say My Name at the Prayer Wall”. May God add a blessing to this word, and may He use me to encourage, empower, and inspire. Also, please God watch over the people who were affected by the tragedy at Fort Lauderdale’s airport. Please bring them peace and protection. Amen.
Walls are built to hold refuse, to control elements and people, to express creativity, and to divide. They are within both residential and community structures. They are resourceful and historical. We know of the Great Wall of China and the Berlin Wall. These walls are fine, but today, I speak of using walls like the Western or Kotel wall which is an ancient limestone wall in the Old City of Jerusalem. This wall has a holy designation because it sits close to a hill called Temple Mount that is located close to an ancient temple that was expanded by Herod the Great. Visitors to the wall pilgrimage to say their prayers at a place that they consider to be a strong site of unity and shared belief.
Do you yet have access to a prayer wall? A prayer wall has multiple purposes. You can find a place within your home that serves as a prayer wall even if you have access to a church. This message is one to prove the power of a prayer wall in one’s life.
Use it to pray just as “Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the LORD” (Isaiah 38:2).
Use it to separate just as Ezekiel built a wall around a temple to “divide between the holy and the profane” (Ezekiel 42:20).
Use your prayer wall to see symbolic signs from God as in Daniel 5:5 where “suddenly the fingers of a man’s hand emerged and began writing opposite the lampstand on the plaster of the wall”.
Use your prayer wall to protect rest and peace surrounding your family and ministries with prayer as King Asa said to the people of Judah, “Let us build cities and surround them with walls and towers, gates and bars. The land is still ours because we have sought the LORD our God; we have sought Him, and He has given us rest on every side.” (2 Chronicles 14:7).
In prayer, speak to the walls of your life that might block your blessings. Use prayer if you feel off the wall or if your back is against the wall like King Saul wanted to do to David. Pray for protection if your house is divided by walls of trouble and disdain as promised in Ephesians 2:14. Just as in Psalm 89:40, pray at your wall against undesirable strongholds. The holy word advises us to face the wall and say the names of God for your particular prayer of protection. In Beyonce’s song called “Say my name; Say my name”, her character asks that her name be uttered so that she might be convinced that her loved one is being faithful; we can call God by His names because we know He is faithful and true as it is written in Numbers 23:19.
So say His name.
Jehovah Jireh,
provide our protection.
Jehovah Raah,
keep your sheep close to you.
El Shaddai,
bring your might with you.
Jehovah Rapha,
heal our land, hearts, and minds.
Shammah,
be there.
Jehovah Mekoddishkem,
sanctify our hearts for kingdom work!
Jehovah Shalom,
bring us peace.
We say your names.
We drink in your designations.
We tout your titles.
We understand the power of your names. “For as his name is, so is he” (1 Sam 25:25).
As we come to the end of this message, stay tuned for lecture notes on this coming Monday, January 9, at our website http://www.dignityshouse.org. I’m Dr. Daintee Glover Jones, and this has been a message from the House that Dignity Built. I bid you peace and protection.
Amen and ashe’.
Dr. Jones sings…
Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
Joshua fought the battle of Jericho
and the walls came a-tumbling down

Love you in Christ!
