There are eight corners in a room, and eight cornerstone scriptures.
Psalm 118:22 (NASB)
The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief corner stone.
Our Father in heaven,
Your Son Jesus is our Saviour, our salvation and our healer. We claim Him as the chief corner stone in Washington, D.C.
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD,
“Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone,
A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed.
He who believes in it will not be disturbed.
Father, we believe that Jesus is the tested, costly, firmly placed foundation stone. Help the Christians who live and work in Washington, D.C. so that they will not be disturbed in the trials of this world.
Jesus said to them, “Did you never read in the Scriptures,
‘THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED,
THIS BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone;
THIS CAME ABOUT FROM THE LORD,
AND IT IS MARVELOUS IN OUR EYES’?
We have rejected You within our nation’s capitol.
Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
Have you not even read this Scripture:
‘THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone; THIS CAME ABOUT FROM THE LORD, AND IT IS MARVELOUS IN OUR EYES’?”
Our eyes are filled with the marvel of Your presence, Lord Jesus, in every dimension.
But Jesus looked at them and said, “What then is this that is written:
‘THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone’?
You are chief in every dimension and every realm, seen and unseen, in Washington, D.C., Lord Jesus. You are the chief boundary marker of the District of Columbia.
He is the STONE WHICH WAS REJECTED by you, THE BUILDERS, but WHICH BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone.
Supplant the false mindsets that obstruct the establishment of Your righteous government, Lord Jesus. You are the way, the truth, and the life. Supplant the false mindsets with godly wisdom and understanding. We yearn for Your rule and Your government in Washington, D.C. as it is in heaven.
So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone,
O Father, would that the household of faith in Washington, D.C. be built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone.
1 Peter 2:6
For this is contained in Scripture:
“BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION A CHOICE STONE, A PRECIOUS CORNER stone,
AND HE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.”
Thank You Father, for Jesus, Your gracious gift. We believe and are not disappointed.
We declare to Washington, D.C., “Believe! Believe in Christ Jesus! Believe in the rock of our salvation! Believe!”
