If this is your first visit, please stop by here and read a little bit about our ministry--how we are joining together to lift others to God in prayer. However, what you read here and in the posts is actually enough.

Maybe you come across someone that needs prayer while visiting blogs, instead of just saying, "Praying for you", do so and bring their prayer need and leave your prayer here and let them know that you left a prayer for them at the Lighthouse of Prayer

This is an interactive blog based on a comment and response system. YOU are a part of our Prayer Team - the minute you add your prayer in the comment area or leave one for someone else in the reply under their prayer.

PLEASE WRITE YOUR PRAYER, PRAYER REQUEST, PRAISE, THANKS - in the place that would normally read COMMENTS after the most recent post, but here it reads "PRAYERS LIFTED TO THE THRONE of GOD"... since a LINKY is no longer available. We begun using a PRAYER REQUEST LINKY, but if it's not there, please leave PRAYER or REQUEST in "PRAYERS LIFTED TO THE THRONE of GOD" (the area for comments but do not write a comment) Thank you so much! Looking at this new template, it's difficult to know how to leave a comment (Prayer) but just click on the part that says __ comments. [it __ shows a number for how many comments/prayers are currently posted]

We'd love to see your prayer requests and praises to God in this area and hopefully others will be supporting you through their prayers written as a response to your prayer there. Be sure to come back and see the prayers lifting you and yours together to the LORD or leave one! You can also remain anonymous, God knows you.

Please remember NO COMMENTS, only PRAYERS! It is important that this be a house of prayer. Any comment, not as a prayer or prayer request will be deleted. Thanks again!

Please read announcement in Oct. 2014 first to understand better the lack of activity here! Thank you.

*1st photo is of Denise and Coco
2nd one's from Marsha

{I tried to leave my comment on Denise's post link of photo, but need blog author's approval-so I hope you approve: "It is my joy, honor and such a privilege to have come to know and love you, my friend and sister in Christ. Words cannot express what a true blessing you are and have been to me. You have been through so much yet I know Jesus is right there with you. 

My dear Denise (a.k.a. Shortybear) I love you and you hold a special place in my heart today and always! {shared your photo with Coco on our Lighthouse of Prayer} You are a true warrior and the sweetest spirit ever ... I treasure you just being you! With a heart full of love ~Peggy

[I wanted to enable replies, like my other blog has and this use to have in the comments, but cannot find where to do that ... it was Oct. 2014 when this prayer team slowed down and I believe that it was because Denise was taken so ill and Alice also, then I looked at November 2014 followed by some posts in  March 2016 where I attempted to try again and there I read Denise ... sharing prayers for others and participating as the best team player I could ever ask for ... indeed Denise will be missed. I have so much I'd love to write about Denise, however if you read her sweet prayers, visit her blog, you will discover how easy it is to love her ... Denise deserves a real tribute, but this and her own words and prayers are the best I have at this time. Thank you all for your prayers!] 

It's Time to Pray


PRAYER for Our Nation

This was shared in an email from the Presidential Prayer Team:

Declaration of Independence Signer

Samuel Chase
George Washington (1732-1799), 1st President of the United States

"Almighty God: We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy Holy protection; and Thou wilt incline the hearts of the Citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to Government; and to entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow Citizens of the United States at large, and particularly for their brethren who have served in the Field. And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that Charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the Characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed Religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen." --

This prayer of George Washington appears in St. Paul's Chapel in New York City.
