Prayers at Dudley CastleAs we walked into Dudley Castle we sang that old song – Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return and come with singing unto Zion. Everlasting joy will be upon their head. They shall obtain gladness and joy and sadness will fall away. We pray that this will be true for the people of Dudley and the Black Country.
The scripture declaration at the old gates of the castle was:
Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will go through them, And I will praise the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord, Through which the righteous shall enter. I will praise You, For You have answered me, And have become my salvation. The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone. This was the Lord’s doing; It is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. Save now, I pray, O Lord; O Lord , I pray, send now prosperity. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! We have blessed you from the house of the Lord . God is the Lord, And He has given us light; Bind the sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar. You are my God, and I will praise You; You are my God, I will exalt You. Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
Psalm 118 NKJV
