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.

The Importance Of Prayer

"The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest" (Matt. 9:37-38).

Prayer is essential in the Christian's life. Without it, your witness will be far less effective, and you will be far more vulnerable to the enemy. When you witness, you need the blessing and support of the Lord. You need to be in fellowship with Him.

Prayer makes this all possible. When you witness you plant the seeds of the Gospel, but it is God who causes the growth.

In prayer you ask God to give that growth. In prayer you ask God to convict the unrepentant of their sin and by that awaken in them the need for salvation.

In prayer you, "...let your requests be made known to God" (Phil. 4:6). Think back to your own conversion. Were there people praying and requesting your salvation?

Jesus prayed frequently (
Matt. 14:23
; 26:36; Mark 6:46; Luke 5:16; John 17).

Paul prayed (Rom. 1:9; Eph. 1:16). Stephen prayed (Acts 7:55-60). You must pray. God wants you to pray to Him and have fellowship with Him (John 1:1-4).

Why? One reason is that our battle is not against flesh and blood but against powers and the spiritual forces of darkness (Eph. 6:12). That is where the real battle is, in the spiritual realm.

You need prayer. Prayer is one of God's ordained means for you to do spiritual warfare and sharing the Gospel is definitely spiritual warfare.

Another reason to pray is that you can actually influence God with your prayers. If you are doubtful, then look at
2 Kings 20:1-7
. King Hezekiah was told by the prophet Amoz that he should set his house in order because he was surely going to die (v. 1). Hezekiah prayed earnestly (v. 2,3). The Lord heard his prayers and said, "I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; behold, I will heal you. On the third day you shall go up to the house of the LORD. And I will add fifteen years to your life" (v. 5). Hezekiah's prayer made a difference.

That is why you, as a Christian, can be an effective witness, because you have influence with God and because you can ask God to save. Prayer is a vital part of witnessing.

What should you pray for?

Pray for more people to witness. Jesus specifically asked you to pray to the Father and ask Him to send workers into the field (
Matt. 9:37-38
). What is the field? It is the world of sinners.

Who are the workers? They are people like you. Jesus wants people to find salvation and enjoy eternal fellowship with Him.

He wants you to preach the Gospel. He has given this command "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations..." (Matt. 28:19). Your witness for God may or may not be verbal. But either way, you need to pray and ask God to give you strength, love, and insight.

Pray for compassion for the lost. Compassion is a necessary element in witnessing. It motivates you to speak, to teach, and to pray for others to come into the kingdom of God. Compassion helps you to cry over the lost and to come to God in humble request for their salvation. Paul said, "Brethren, my heart's desire and by prayer to God for them is for their salvation" (Rom. 10:1).

Pray for the desire to witness. Pray this regularly and watch the Lord change you and give you a desire to reach out and tell people about Jesus. God will grant your prayers and joy will fill your heart as you fulfill the command of God by witnessing.

Pray for boldness. Pray for the courage to step out in faith and speak up when needed. Many Christians are timid because speaking a word for the sake of the Lord can be risky and frightening. Boldness gives you the courage to risk ridicule and to endure the scorn. Ask God for it. "For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline. Therefore, do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord" (2 Tim. 1:7-8).

Pray to the Lord to bind Satan and his angels. There is a hierarchy of demons seeking to hinder your witness and steal the seeds of the Gospel that you plant. You cannot fight spirits with reason or flesh and blood, but you can ask the Lord to fight. With prayer you can assault the camp of the enemy and weaken his false kingdom.

Prayer is a mighty tool, a powerful tool. You need it if you are going to witness.

Pray for your needs. Do you have a close walk with God? Do you need a deeper fellowship with Him? Do you have sins you need to confess and forsake? If so, then pray. Enjoy your privilege of coming to the Creator of the universe who meets your every need. He loves you. He wants to hear from you and He wants you to make your needs known to Him.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God" (Phil. 4:6).

When You Speak, God Hears

Just had to share this from Max Lucado! You can receive these in your email also, just once a week or a daily devotional by going here

When You Speak, God Hears by Max Lucado

Those who pray keep alive the watch fires of faith. For the most part we don’t even know their names. Such is the case of someone who prayed on a day long ago. His name is not important. He is important not because of who he was, but because of what he did.

He went to Jesus on behalf of a friend. His friend was sick, and Jesus could help, and someone needed to go to Jesus, so someone went. Others cared for the sick man in other ways. Some brought food; others provided treatment; still others comforted the family. Each role was crucial. Each person was helpful, but no one was more vital than the one who went to Jesus.

John writes: “So Mary and Martha sent someone to tell Jesus, ‘Lord, the one you love is sick’” (John 11:3, emphasis mine).

Someone carried the request. Someone walked the trail. Someone went to Jesus on behalf of Lazarus. And because someone went, Jesus responded.

In the economy of heaven, the prayers of saints are a valued commodity. John the apostle would agree. He wrote the story of Lazarus and was careful to show the sequence: The healing began when the request was made.

The phrase the friend of Lazarus used is worth noting. When he told Jesus of the illness, he said, “The one you love is sick.” The power of the prayer, in other words, does not depend on the one who makes the prayer but on the one who hears the prayer.

We can and must repeat the phrase in manifold ways. “The one you love is tired, sad, hungry, lonely, fearful, depressed.” The words of the prayer vary, but the response never changes. The Savior hears the prayer. He silences heaven so he won’t miss a word. The Master heard the request. Jesus stopped whatever he was doing and took note of the man’s words. This anonymous courier was heard by God.

John’s message is critical. You can talk to God because God listens. Your voice matters in heaven. He takes you very seriously. When you enter his presence, the attendants turn to you to hear your voice. No need to fear that you will be ignored. Even if you stammer or stumble, even if what you have to say impresses no one, it impresses God—and he listens.

Intently. Carefully. The prayers are honored as precious jewels. Purified and empowered, the words rise in a delightful fragrance to our Lord. “The smoke from the incense went up from the angel’s hand to God” (Rev. 8:4). Incredible. Your words do not stop until they reach the very throne of God.

One call and heaven’s fleet appears. Your prayer on earth activates God’s power in heaven.

You are the someone of God’s kingdom. Your prayers move God to change the world. You may not understand the mystery of prayer. You don’t need to. But this much is clear: Actions in heaven begin when someone prays on earth. What an amazing thought!

When you speak, Jesus hears.

And when Jesus hears, the world is changed. All because someone prayed.

My 2009 Daily Bible Reading Guide from the American Bible Society is "Called to Be Free".

For the month of January, my readings were "Called to Be Free to Follow Jesus", which has me now reading in ACTS. For February it will be "Called to be Free to Share God's Love."

A.C.T.S. is the prayer pattern that guides us in how to pray besides the model of the "Lord's Prayer" - "The Our Father" taken from Jesus Himself. To read about this you can check with Beth's post on The Power of Your Love - A Quiet Time with God. My point here is that from the first churches in Acts until this day, we, the body of Christ, need to ACT together. Jesus Christ came and is waiting still for us to UNITE and pray as ONE - United in one accord!

The week of January 18th to the 25th was "Week of Prayer for Christian Unity"... an ecumenical movement to join churches in the northern hemisphere together to PRAY! The southern hemisphere will do this around the day of Pentecost. So it's flexible, as to when we PRAY.

In the year 2009, Christians around the world will pray for unity: “that they may be one in your hand” (Ezekiel 37: 17).

Ezekiel – the name meaning “God makes him strong” – was
called upon to give his people HOPE in the desperate religious and political situation following the fall and occupation of Israel, and the exile of many of its people. Korea chose the theme based on UNITY because of their own situation within a divided country and the parellels with Ezekiel. It is these biblical themes - unity as God’s intention for God’s people; unity as God’s gift, but requiring conversion and renewal; unity as a new creation; and the hope that God’s people may yet be one - which have inspired the Korean churches for this Week of Prayer.

So it is my desire to CALL US TOGETHER from the various blogs to JOIN TOGETHER from our diverse backgrounds and desires of our hearts to PRAY AS ONE ACCORD!

That is one of the reason that the LIGHTHOUSE of PRAYER was formed. To free us up and share our prayers and prayer needs together in one place interactively. Many of us have PRAYER as a burden or goal for ourselves this year along with scripture memorization and Bible reading!

These are 3 worthwhile and intertwined steps to build our Christian walk. But if each of us do it apart from others and not together, we lose the entire purpose. We intend to pray more for one another, we may even say that we'll pray for someone, but here is the place to bring that person's prayer petition and hold them up together. We do not want to create another list of the many needs, though that is so wonderful, we want you to come here and actually pray for that person as you read of their need.

Tell them that you are bringing it to PRAYER at the LIGHTHOUSE of PRAYER and JUST DO IT! Perhaps you may want to ask them or invite them to share it here. It is up to you how you choose to handle and pray but be assured that others here will lift them with you. We respect each person's privacy and that's why you can pray anonymously. If people are writing their need on their post, that is making it public to be lifted to Our Lord. We must unite because there is power in UNITY!

There is POWER in prayer. There is POWER in the Word of GOD. When we combine these two dynamic sources with the POWER of the Holy Spirit in UNITY, an explosive spiritual energy is unleashed in any believer's life which results in renewed faith, victory and answered prayer.

The Bible assures us in *James 5:16, praying the Word is effectual and it avails much in the believer's life because PRAYING builds faith in each believer's heart. This UNITY & PRAYING scripture activates God's supernatural POWER.

Matthew 18:18-20

"I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. 19"Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.

20For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."

Today, we'd like to try something different: a fill-in style of prayer but you are free to pray as you would like.

Heavenly Father,

Today I come before Your Throne for my friend_______________and
ask that You ___________________________in Jesus' precious Name.
Thank You......(if you are able, choose a verse and PRAY it)

Your loving friend and daughter of the King,

Heavenly Father,

Today I come before Your Throne for my friend BETH and ask that YOU heal her from her illness and give her REST in Jesus' precious Name. Thank You for in Isaiah 53:5 it says:

But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed
so Jesus was wounded for Beth's trangressions & He was bruised for Beth's iniquities, the chastisement for our peace, for Beth's peace was upon Jesus and by His Stripes Beth is healed. Thank You for Your Word! Amen.

Breathing Our Thanks

If you haven't visited "The Lighthouse of Prayer" before, please visit the introduction to this blog so you can learn and understand what we are all about.

I've posted on "The Power of Your Love" this morning about beginning to pray, realizing that some people don't know where to begin. How do I know this? Because I was in that very place at one time. So, you might want to stop by there and learn about beginning a prayer life. This is basically where I started in my prayer life, simply offering my thanks to God for what He has done in my life.

Please feel free to leave a praise, a request, a thank you to God. You can leave this with your name or anonymously. Others will be behind to join you in prayer, so either stop back to view your prayers or make sure that you have follow up comments e-mailed to you so that you can read what others are praying about for you.

I'll open this morning with my own morning prayer:

My Father in Heaven,

You truly are My Father, breathing the very life into me. I thank you for the power of prayer, the ability to communicate with You, the creator of all the universe.

I know that You are there, waiting to hear from Your children, just as I was waiting to hear my own children speak. How thrilled You must be when we speak to you! You are holy and mighty and have the power to do all things--in us, through us, the power to change us.

Change me, Lord, in whatever ways You see necessary so that I may day by day, moment by moment become more Christ-like in my ways, my words, my actions, my showing love to others. Help me especially with those that I consider to be unlovable, to see them as You see them. We are all Your children, and You love each and every one of us. Help me to see others as You see them, not as I perceive them.

I thank you, Lord, for your healing process in me. I was down and out for two day with an infection. Thank you for beginning the healing process in me and for the doctors that treated me with Your wisdom to guide them.

I pray today for Leslie, a young girl with 8 more treatments to treat her cancer. Help her to withstand these treatments easily with minimal side effects. I ask that You heal this young woman, Lord, again guiding her doctors and all that treat her with Your wisdom and guidance.

Thank You, Lord, for the talents You have bestowed upon me--talents that I am able to use to help others. Lead me to where the need is the greatest. Give me the energy, the strength, the time, the resources to follow You on this mission.

I thank You for Denise, Peggy and Kathy--all Your servants, Lord, each of them looking to You for the direction and guidance in their lives--giving You all the glory in even difficult circumstances. Still, even in the difficulties, we praise you, knowing that you will use these difficulties to further our relationship with You and point others towards You.

I ask that You guide me though my day at work today, utilizing me in every way possible to lead others to You. I know that You want all to come to You, Lord. Please help every person today to plant a seed in someone else so that they may come to know and love You, Your joy, Your great mercy and grace towards us, Your peace, and most of all Your great sacrifice of Your son, Jesus Christ, so that we may have forgiveness of our sins and spend an eternity with You.

All of this I pray in Jesus' name,

Welcome to Our New Home!

First, I want to welcome everyone to our new home!! This blog is devoted to prayer and prayer alone. If you're a new visitor, you might want to stop by here and read the introduction so you can learn what is happening here! You'll also see the prayer requests and responses that others have left. You do not need to leave your prayer request in the form of a prayer, but others will respond to whatever you have in your heart or on your mind in prayer to Our Father.

I'm very excited about this new venture that God has set me and the others involved upon--interactively praying for others, interceding with them to God on their behalf.

Also, if you don't feel comfortable leaving a prayer request with your name, this blog has been set up so that you can leave anonymous requests. Feel free to leave your request without your name. Everyone is in the need of prayer--praises to God, requests for themselves and for others. So, please feel free to leave your request in whatever form you feel comfortable, knowing that others will follow you in prayer.

We, here at "The Lighthouse of Prayer" firmly believe that God does hear our prayers and does answer them according to His Will in our lives. His love for us goes beyond any concept we can even begin to grasp.

I will open today with my own morning prayer:

My Father,

You truly are my Father, the one I come to with my joys, my sorrows, how I'm feeling at any particular time. I know that even if I think that something on my mind is small and trivial, that this is still important to You. You care about moment of my life, every thought that I have, every movement I make.

I lift my praises to You for the unconditional love You have shown me. Your love is greater than anything this world has to offer. I can do nothing, be nothing without Your strength, power, might, and love guiding me and directing me.

I ask that you lead me through this day with Your Will for me firmly implanted in my heart and mind. Let me show Your love to others by my actions and my words. Keep the enemy far from me. I have put on Your armor, God, as I do every morning of my life. Protect me from the stinging darts of others with Your armor of protection.

Again, draw me from those who will gossip at my place of work. I know that You do not want me participating in this downgrading of others. Help me to just walk away when I hear this happening and not be involved.

I pray that You will pour out your blessings on this venture that you have set me upon. Bring people who are in need of prayer so that we can continue to be a comfort to them in their times of distress or pain, join them in their praises, in their joyful moments, and most of all, share Your love for each and everyone of us--Your love which is the greatest gift of all--the sacrifice of You own Son so that we may have a closer relationship with You, forgiveness of our sins, salvation and an eternal life spent with You.

I place my children in Your hands this day, God, knowing that You know what is best for them. Lead them and guide them through this day. Today I surrender my control of them for Your control. Let Your Will be done in each of my 3 children.

Thank you, God, for this day--a new day to start afresh in You.

In Jesus' most precious Name I pray,

The Lighthouse of Prayer--Second Posting

This is a second posting of the original introduction to "The Lighthouse of Prayer". Please visit the previous post to view others' prayer requests and prayer responses here.

If you've already visited and read the introduction, the prayer requests, praises and responses. please scroll down to 
January 24, 2009.

First, I want to share with you a little, so bear with me:

When I see a lighthouse, I think of God--standing tall, firm, faithful, always there, never failing in His love for us. He is a never wavering fortress in our lives--the good times when the seas are calm and also when the storms coming beating down upon us.

He is guiding the light for us to follow, even through the fog and mist when we cannot see or hear Him clearly.

How do we communicate with our God? Through prayer.

How many times do we say to others, "I'll keep you in my prayers".

Do you have people in your life who are actively praying for you--for your needs, for your requests to God, rejoicing with you in your praises to God?

Jesus came to this earth not only to show us how to lead and conduct our lives, to sacrifice Himself so that we could have forgiveness of our sins and eternal life with Him, but to bridge the gap between man and God. He intercedes for us with God. His ministry on this earth lasted only 3 short years, but He is still interceding for us some 2000+ years later!!

Praying is our means of talking with God-- just like we talk with our friends--telling them what is going on in our life--what we're joyful about, what we're sorrowful about, what's happening with our friend that we're concerned about.

God is the source of change in our lives--only He has the power, might and strength to change the future. He is the sole history maker. But, we can be an active part of this history change through prayer to God. He hears us. He is just waiting for us to come to Him, to talk to Him.

This is going to be an interactive prayer request-comment conversation with God.

All you need to do is post a comment with a prayer request--something that is pressing in your life, whatever has been imprinted upon your heart that you feel the need or want others to pray along with you, a praise of whatever has made you joyful that you would like to share so that others can rejoice with you, an answer from God for something that you have been praying about.

Now, here's the really important part--those who stop by and read your prayer request will leave a PRAYER for you--not a comment--the specific PRAYER that they have said for you. And you have the opportunity to leave a comment as a PRAYER for others.

Jesus intercedes for us, and we will be interceding for others!!

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty excited about this!!

January 24, 2009

I received a gift yesterday in the mail--one that I didn't see until this morning because I forgot to pick up the mail. This was sitting on my dining room table when I awoke this morning. This is a deck of Scripture playing cards that was gifted to me through a friend by someone I don't even know.

I randomly picked a card this morning, and here is the verse displayed on the jack of diamonds:

And He said to him, "You shall love the Lord Your God with all your heart, all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself."........Matthew 22:37-39

I have to ask myself, what better way is there to show our love for God and for others than through prayer? Please continue to leave your prayer requests, praises and responses in the form of a prayer. Let's lift up our praises to God and intercede for others!


As I begin my day, I lift up my praises to You--You are my King, my all. I worship You for being who You are, the great I AM. I realize that I can do nothing, be nothing in this life on earth without You by my side, guiding and directing me. Help me to always hear Your voice clearly so that I may know and follow Your will and plans for me this day.

I again lift up my children to You asking that You bring them to You so that they may know the full extent of Your love, Your sacrifice for us and accept You as their Savior. I ask this with full confidence that this is Your will for them, trusting and knowing that You will use others in their lives to plant the seeds of life in them. Help me to always be a living example of You to them by my daily words and actions.

I thank you for the opportunity this afternoon to gather with two close friends for conversation, lunch and laughter. How much we need laughter in our lives!! Thank you, God, for laughter and placing this emotion into us during our creation.

Thank you for my tears of joy, tears that I could not cry for so many years. Now they flow freely, not in sadness but in my joy of knowing You, knowing of Your love for me and Your great sacrifice for me. Am I deserving of this sacrifice? Are any of us? We are still sinners, Lord, still in our sinful ways . And yet You still urge us to come to You, to seek forgiveness.

I come to you this morning asking forgiveness of my sins--some that I have committed knowingly and others that I have committed unknowingly. Please forgive me of gossiping. How easy it is to get caught up in the talking about others when we are more than likely doing the same thing. Help me to stand tall and walk away from conversations that are degrading to others, Abba, and instead seek Your attitude in loving them.

Show me how to love the "unlovable".

I thank you, Lord, for all you have provided for me on a daily basis. I have my job while others have none. I have food while others have none. I have a place to live while others are homeless.

You have given me a mission, Abba, a mission to help others who have less than me. Please guide and direct me and the others involved in this mission so that we may bring Your mission to fulfillment to help those in need.

All of this I bring to You in the Name of Your Son, my Savior--Jesus Christ.



Denise said...

Dear heavenly Father, thank You for a brand new day full of promise. I love You so very much, more each day. Please bless my friend Beth today as she spends some time with two friends. I pray that she will be blessed, and be a blessing. Please watch over her children, lead their footsteps. Thank You. Amen

Michele Williams said...

Dear gracious Heavenly Father, I thank you for your grace, mercy and love. I ask heavenly Father that you grant unto my sister, Marsha, strenght, peace, rest, and good health as she ministers to our mom and stepfather during the last days of his life. May she be able to line up all the necessary home health and transportation needs for them at this time. May she be able to meet with our cousin so she can have a few hours of fun, and not think about all the things that still need to be done before leaves to go back to her home and family. I thank you Lord, that she was able to go to their home and help them during their time of need. I give you all the praise and glory... In Jesus Pecious Name, Amen

sailorcross said...

My Father,

I join Michele in her prayers for her sister, Marsha. Please help and guide Marsha with Your strength and love during this time with her mother and stepfather. Allow her the time to rest and enjoy herself with her cousin, a time to relieve her stress and anxieties and to refresh her strength in You.

I ask You, Father, to ease the burden placed upon Marsha by helping to guide all the necessary home health care situations smoothly into place.

I thank you for the safe travel you granted to Marsha from her home to her mother and stepfather's home. Help her to be a source of comfort to both of them, as I know she is. Place peace upon her and her mother's heart during this very difficult time.

I, also pray for Michele, far away and wanting to be with her mother and stepfather, too. Please help Michele to be aware of Your presence, to feel Your arms embracing her, every moment of this day. Bring Michele Your peace as she goes through this day.

In Jesus' precious Name,


sailorcross said...My Father,

I come to You this morning with praise in my heart. I've just listened to "I Know My Redeemer Lives", and I am so grateful that You have led me back to You! I thank You for speaking to me through music. You know that about me--the fact that I love music and You use this to draw me closer and closer to You.

I know that Jesus died and now lives, My Redeemer, My Savior, My Comforter, My Friend. But, there are so many who do not.

The name my mother gave me at my birth--Beth--Hebrew--means promise from God. Help me to fulfill Your promises in me. Give me the vision and the strength to follow You wherever you lead me. My promise to You, God--I will follow and I will go--just lead me, direct me, let me hear Your voice clearly.

I ask that you use me THIS DAY to show just one other person of Your love, Your hope, Your salvation--just one. 

Show me who that person is, Lord, and do not let me hesitate to share Your Good News with them.

I continue to pray for all those who have left prayers here, and I pray for your continued blessings upon this venture that you set me upon. 

Let those who need prayer for whatever reason seek their peace in You.

I love and praise Your Holy name!!

In Jesus' most precious Name,

We're introducing a new segment to "The Power of Your Love" today!!

First, I want to share with you a little, so bear with me;

When I see a lighthouse, I think of God--standing tall, firm, faithful, always there, never failing in His love for us. He is a never wavering fortress in our lifes--the good times and when the storms coming beating down upon us.

He is guiding the light for us to follow, even through the fog and mist when we cannot see or hear Him clearly.

Do you have people in your life who are actively praying for you--for your needs, for your requests to God, rejoicing with you in your praises to God?

Jesus came to this earth not only to show us how to lead and conduct our lives, to sacrifice Himself so that we could have forgiveness of our sins and eternal life with Him, but to bridge the gap between man and God. He intercedes for us with God. His ministry on this earth lasted only 3 short years, but He is still interceding for us some 2000+ years later!!

Praying is our means of talking with God-- just like we talk with our friends--telling them what is going on in our life--what we're joyful about, what we're sorrowful about, what's happening with our friend that we're concerned about.

God is the source of change in our lives--only He has the power, might and strength to change the future. He is the sole history maker. But, we can be an active part of this history change through prayer to God. He hears us. He is just waiting for us to come to Him, to talk to Him.

This is going to be an interactive prayer request-comment conversation with God.

All you need to do is post a comment with a prayer request--something that is pressing in your life, whatever has been imprinted upon your heart that you feel the need or want others to pray along with you, a praise of whatever has made you joyful that you would like to share so that others can rejoice with you, an answer from God for something that you have been praying about.

Now, here's the really important part--those who stop by and read your prayer request will leave a PRAYER for you--not a comment--the specific PRAYER that they have said for you. And you have the opportunity to leave a comment as a PRAYER for others.

Jesus intercedes for us, and we will be interceding for others!!

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty excited about this!!

I can't think of anything that would be more appropriate than to start this with my prayer:


I love you and praise Your Name always. You are the most high, always there for us, never wavering in Your love for us.

There are many issues upon my own heart as well as the hearts of others. Please lead us in prayer to You for You are the sole source of our hope in this life. Let us learn to depend upon You more and more until we are totally dependent and fully surrendered to You.

Today I come to you with my children upon my heart. They know You, Lord, but they have not accepted You as their Savior. I pray that You bring them to You, show them the full extent of our love and be a life-changing force for them.

My work situation is also on my mind. You know how overwhelmed and stressed I feel there. Is this the place You want me to be? Lead me in Your wisdom, guide me through my day no matter what the situation is. Let me lay my stress upon You for Your shoulders are much broader than mine and able to bear the weight of this.

I thank you for always being there for me, always loving me even when I don't feel deserving of this love.

I humbly ask that You bless this day--each and every moment. Let us feel Your presence in our lives and be a shining light to others to guide them to You.

In Jesus' most precious name,



Kay Martin said...

Father God,
I'm awed at You and that You made a way through Jesus Christ for me to be His righteousness so that I may come to YOU today and know Heaven accepts me,loves me, hears me and will answer.

In a few hours I take a examination for a supervisory position I am applying for. The pay for this job will pay off the mortgage on my home and I will be able to work in ministry fulltime after 2 years of this work.

I thank You for all my blessings, the people in my life and the ways you open up ministry in every day of my life.

Lord, I thank You that my children and their spouses are coming into position in Your Kingdom. Pour Your love and mercy on them as they stall in their youth to the call on their lives.

Thank You for my church. As our pastor preached last night may we come in one heart in unity in love of You to be Your body and Your anointing fill us and move us to be about Your Kingdom now here on earth.
In Jesus Name AMEN

sailorcross said...

My God,

I lift Kay up to You today, I join her in her praises to You. You are the most awesome, the most high, the most righteous.

Ease Kay's mind as she takes this exam for a new position in her life that will allow her to concentrate on her ministries for You. Allow her peace of mind in order to do well on this exam, and yes, even supply her with the answers to this test if this is Your will for her.

Continue to allow her ministry opportunities to open doors for her. She is Your hands and feet to this world, and she is willing to go the extra mile--where others choose not to go.

Thank you for the blessings you have bestowed upon her and her children, even through the storms of her life. Lead Kay and her children where YOU want them to be in their lives and bless their ministries for You and in Your name.

I join Kay in her prayer to You, Lord, that we all become one body, united in You, leading others to Your Kingdom.

I pray that you place Your steadying hand upon Kay today and let her be most acutely aware of your presence as she takes this important exam.

In Jesus' precious NAME,


Dorothy Champagne said...

Dear God,
Thank you for giving me another wonderful morning where I can wake up and get on a computer and stay connected with friends all over the world. Thank you for guiding me in my daily quest to become closer to you. Thank you for answering my prayers.

You know of the weight that is on me and we've already discussed it and I want you to know that I will continue with my promise to work on this situation - I ask that You also work on keeping my heart soft about this.

Please be with Beth and her children, let them feel Your love for them. Encourage her even during the times where she feels like she's not making a difference.

Be with Kay during her test. If this is Your will for her, let all the doors just open up and give her the strength to complete all the tasks You need her to do.

Be with my children to continue to want to learn more about you and daily have their quiet time without complaining.

Give me the opportunity to work for You today. Because I know how Great You are and want other people to know it to.
In Jesus Name,

Aunt Kathy said...

Father God, Maker of Heaven and Earth, we come before Your throne, knowing You are there to receive us, and Your ears are listening to our prayers. 

I thank You for Beth and the visions you have given her for reaching out to those suffering and in need. You have given her a true servants heart and I KNOW You will also answer her prayers for her children and her place in this work world. Please bless quickly her mission here, and bring those who need someone to agree in prayer here.

Thank you also for our friends here, who also love You and pray with authority and assurance. We are blessed to have them among us, nad we know that where two or more agree together, there You are in our midst.

We can rejoice in the opening doors in Kay's life and the dedication she has to serve You has not gone unnoticed. Mayu the blessings You have for her overflow in her life and bless all those around her.

Dorothy has brought to You the weights weighing her down and given them to You to carry. May this freedom and peace strengthen her and encourage her, and assure her that You are in control and You have a plan for her, just as we read in Jeremiah.

Lastly Lord, for me I thank You for being the I AM in my life. I lack nothing because of your grace and mercy and faithfulness.

Bless this blog, and all who come here to read, post, comment, pray and search for answers from the all knowing God.


Peggy said...

Oh Heavenly Father, I am overwhelmed by the gracious prayers of my sisters and their hearts for You! Bind us together and anoint these prayers and petitions!

Hear O Lord, the sound of our prayers unto You and bless this 
awesome place where we can unite as one voice to You! I adore You, Lord! I praise You for answering & leading & guiding these women in Your Light! You truly are the Light of the World. You are our Rock! You are our anchor! 

Be exalted this day as we step forth and agree in prayer for needs and our heart cries!

Lord Jesus, I confess that there are ways in me that are not of You!
Wash me and cleanse me! Know my heart and purify my walk to match what I know and Your Way for me.
You are my Refuge and My Rock.

I thank You for many answered prayers! I thank for for my safety
and protection! Your love covers me! I am so unworthy but so in love and grateful for ALL You do for me!
My heart sings with JOY for ALL You are doing on the internet and will do through this PRAYER LINE!

LORD, There are petitions for loved ones that need to coming to a saving grace & knowledge of You! My adopted son & daughter have seeds planted, they knew You, but they need to return & be watered & nourished & start growing in You & Your ways! Their father also needs You, Lord Jesus. His concepts of You God are too wide and He needs to know that there is no way but through Your Son Jesus! Help the scales to fall from his eyes before it is too late. Continue to bring people into his life to show Him where I have failed to light His way with the Truth of Jesus Christ.
I stand with Beth for her 3 also & claim them for You! Thank You Lord for Kay's children & spouses that are coming into their position in Your Kingdom as we HOPE for all our unsaved loved ones. Be with Dorothy's children also. Give them thirst & hunger for more of You!

Praise You Lord for opening this door for Kay! Be with her and give her wisdom & knowledge for this exam that she will complete it in the best standing to receive this supervisory position & take care of all her mortgage. You are the owner
of it all and You can bless her to
pay this all off to be free to full-time ministry according to Your perfect will and purpose for Kay!

Father see Beth, her heart and job situation. You know
how difficult this position is and that she needs so much to earn a good income. Allow her some relief today as she carries the load for more than herself. Open the eyes of her supervisor to see the burdens and the cost this has to the overall effectiveness of caring for the patients that come there! Stress in the business place of Beth be gone in Jesus'Name. Release Your servant Beth from all stress & give her Your blessings & peace in the midst of the turmoil daily. Though she be tossed and turned in the waves of work, You alone know why she is there and the perfect time to move her to another place according to Your will. If it is not Your will, bring a new calm to her workplace and more workers instead of they cut corners, it increases pressures. Give them wisdom in these decisions! Give Beth strength to withstand and allow her light to shine among those who mock her attentiveness to being a Christian and loving to be in church. Bring her own personal family to a place also of knowing You and letting go of their way of persecuting her & her children because she has chosen You! Protect her Lord for all condemnation for Your Name's sake!
Shield her from the darts of the enemy and the words spoken against You. Forgive those who do not yet know You but draw them by Your Light in Beth! Thank You for giving her a raise but make the job worthy of her staying & enduring until You find a better place for her. Thank You for her heart to serve You! Thank You for how she opens doors to PRAYER & PRAISE for YOU!

My dear Lord,thank You for Dorothy's heart and gratefulness before Your Throne this day. You know Lord, the weight that is upon her & You know that she is doing 
all she promised. Keep her heart soft as regards this and bring her the cries of her heart & Your way to be free from this weight! Lift this burden Lord & give Dorothy Your peace & rest over this. Direct her & guide her as Dorothy works on this. Be her wisdom & sound advice
as she seeks to do Your will & follow Your principles & purpose!

Thank You Lord for Kathy's fervent prayer and words! Thank You for her
beautiful prayer & gratitude for YOU being the GREAT I AM to her!
Thank You so much that Kathy proclaims that she lacks nothing
because of Your Grace, Mercy & Faithfulness. This humbles me greatly.

You know me so well, ABBA...and
my prayers are endless & my petitions are many but I praise You for each day & each breath that YOU
sustain me, provide for me, protect me and complete Your Will & purpose for my life here in Mexico! I thank You that You lead my steps! I shout praises & thanks for this 1,500 mile journey that I made with You as my Co-pilot! You never fail me! You make a way always for me! Your rod & Your staff constantly guide me and You keep me from ALL harm.
Though You provided choices for moves for me to other rental places
I am so thankful that You opened my eyes to dangers that may lurk in the uncertainties of the unknown of a new location. Bless You Jehovah Jireh for the exchange rate that allows me to pay the rent increase.
You always provide and give me a surplus! I'm saddened that I could not cross into the USA to purchase
some books & products I miss but I
understand that because of this, You will bless me even more & have!
I am ABUNDANTLY BLESSED by YOU & my friends in the internet world daily! I join with the others in THANKING You for giving us a Christian sisterhood & family here!
I have found so much wisdom & counsel & love shared as we grow together! You know that I needed to be connected to English speaking Christians to continue to keep me
in fellowship & growing in You!

Thank You for the accountability they give and their beautiful new goals of drawing closer to YOU this year through YOUR WORD: reading Your Word & memorizing & now praying! Bless the new visions & thank You for their testimony of Your Infinite LOVE, GRACE & MERCIES that are new every morning! You, Lord are so aMazing!!! May Your Kingdom & will be done here at the LIGHTHOUSE & throughout Your united family. Renew us, restore us, bring us into repentance & recovery. REVIVE us Lord as Your People & keep us humbly before YOU on our knees in PRAYER, listening to Your Voice & standing in the gap. Heal our nation and touch Your world through each of us...reaching one!
May all glory, honor & prayer be YOURS alone! This is just a start
of my constant prayers before You.

Thank You for being the Bread of Life! Thank You for calling me to follow Jesus Christ! Thank You for leading me through the storms & fogs, and holding out Your hand.

Bless each person that comes to You
at this Lighthouse & hear their heart & prayer. We are a needy people Lord and there are so many in need of You & a touch from You this day! I thank YOU in Jesus most holy and precious Name for the privilege to bow before You! Bless AMERICA & change, guide & preserve
Your place as "in GOD we trust" may Your justice prevail & You remain in Your rightful place on High & first place in our lives as King of kings...You are so beautiful & I rejoice in my life with You! Save us & redeem us from falling into
the comfort zones & conforming to the ways of the world. Bless You & REIGN as WE EXALT YOU as Lord & King!

sailorcross said...

My Father,

Bless all that have come today to share their praises and requests of You. We praise You for who You are--holy above all, in control of all things, creator of the universe!

I gratefully come to You--thanking You for providing the ways and the means for others to join in prayer--knowing that You are listening keenly to what we speak and write to You. May our prayers be answered according to Your Will in our lives.

Lord, I thank you for Dorothy and all that she has taught me through Your works in her in sharing her Bible devotions. Thank you for giving her great insight into Your Word.

I come to you this evening to place the issues that Dorothy is facing into Your hands, as she has already done. I join her in asking You to lead and guide her in lifting this weight of burden from her. Please keep her heart soft and open so that she may hear clearly from You.

Lead Dorothy's children closer to You every moment of their lives, and continue to bless Dorothy in her work for You.

I thank you bringing Kathy into my life. No, she isn't really my aunt, but she should and could be. She is a wonderful encourager and loves You dearly. Bless her, Father, in her quest for peacefulness in her life. Help her to continue to live a healthy lifestyle.

You are the source of joy and hope in Kathy's life, and she continues to place all of her trust in You.

Bless her grandson, Adam. Let him learn Your love from Kathy, Lord, and raise him in Your ways so that he may walk the straight and narrow path with You. Continue to use Kathy as Adam's guiding light in his life. He is a happy little boy--grow him into a joyful young man who will praise and love You just as his Nana does.

I thank you for the friendship and love of Peggy. She is a joy in my life as she shares her love for You with me.

You know what is in her heart and mind, Lord, what issues she is facing. I humbly beseech you to lead her to a safe place to live, where she can have peace and Your total joy in her life.

Thank you for protecting her from harm during her recent journey, surrounding her with Your hedge of protection. She made this journey so that she may stay in Mexico to continue in Your work.

I ask that You bless her missions, her ministries and bring to fulfillment all that You have planned for her.

I pray for her children and their father, that they may re-turn to You and experience fully Your love for them. They know you, Lord and they have turned away. Bring them back to You!

I also lift up to You Peggy's financial situation. Please continue to provide for her. She has placed her complete trust in You regarding this Lord, and I know that You will supply her with her daily needs and then some!

I, too, am blessed by the presence of all here today. Bring to full circle the vision that you have placed upon my heart. We come to You in love, Lord, for You are the King and we are Your children. What an awesome Father You are!!

May You reign in all of our lives as King, and help us--show us the way--put the words into our mouths--so that we may bring more and more people into Your Kingdom. 

Thank you, God, for all that You have done for me in my life and the lives of all that have shared here today--shared in their love and trust in You.

In Jesus' name,

All God's people say

sailorcross said...

My Father,

Thank you answering my and Peggy's prayer for a wonderful night's rest!! My mind was calm and quiet and peaceful knowing that You watched over me while I slept.

Help me to start this day with a fresh attitude towards my job situation. Lead me where You will have me go, and USE ME, LORD, USE ME to lead others to YOU.

This morning, LORD, I come to You asking for continuing blessings upon all who shared their hearts here. We have come to You, LORD, our Rock, with full confidence that You hear our prayers and will answer them according to YOUR Will for our lives.

I lift Denise up to You, Abba. You know her story, You know her health problems and her financial situation. In spite of all of this, she continues to see Your goodness and blessings in every aspect of her life.

She is always an encourager to others, a blessing to everyone she meets--on the internet or in person.

You have provided for her financially in the most unexpected ways!! Please keep Denise and Eddie save in Your arms while Eddie's job situation is so fragile.

Abba, I humbly ask that You heal Denise. You are the Great Physician, the Great Healer! You have the power, the might, the strength to heal Denise of her health problems. 

Keep her well so that she may continue to spread Your love to others to every one whose lives she has and will touch.

Guide her doctors and all those who treat her with Your wisdom so that they will do Your very best in her health care. Even in her times of illness, allow her to encourage others to keep leaning on You as she does. Let others see her and know that Your love is shining through her so that they, too, will come to You.

I ask that Your pour Your blessings upon Denise and Eddie in every way possible, Father. Keep them in Your tender loving care.

Thank You, Lord, thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to us so that we may have a closer relationship with You. Our debts have been stamped "PAID IN FULL" due to Your sacrifice of Your Son for us. How can I ever begin to thank you enough?

In Jesus' most precious name,


sailorcross said...


I have just read of a tragic accident that Kathy's son Jim witnessed yesterday.

Please wrap Jim in Your loving embrace. Let Him be aware of Your presence and peace in his heart as he goes through the process of untangling this in his mind.

I pray for Your comfort and strength for the family of the young man who lost his life in this accident. Grant them Your peace as they grieve and mourn their son.

I also pray for the driver of the car involved in this tragedy, as well as his family. Let him come to You, Lord, let him come and seek Your forgiveness. I'm sure he is feeling terrible over this senseless accident. Help this young man and his family to seek Your grace and mercy, knowing that Your forgiveness is there.

I pray for Kathy in her supporting and guiding Jim through his own grieving in witnessing this accident. Give her strength and Your love to see him through.

And thank you, God, for granting Jim patience--a very difficult fruit of the spirit for some of us to attain. 

I give all of this to you today, my Father.

In Jesus' name.


Denise said...

Dear heavenly Father, thank You for blessing me with a new day in which I can praise You.

I love and appreciate her friendship, please bless Beth all the days of her life. I pray for Jim, ease his mind from what he witnessed. I pray for everyone involved in this terrible wreck. Please give them all comfort and peace. Amen

Peggy said...

My rent is paid and it looks like once more You have provided for my lack in Your Mighty way & I will make it to the end of the month even with having paid the rent increase. That's a great surplus!
Praise You, LORD! With the exchange rate as have taken my limited monthly amount and increased it by $200 which takes care of more than the rent increase. Keep the peso/dollar exchange high for a while and I will be able to do more in Your Kingdom here plus have enough to make my trip home this spring or summer. Thank You for covering my trip to the border with prayers for safety that were truly answered, provision which I PRAISE YOU for, bless Your Awesome Name...Thank You for the strength to drive that distance and not be wiped out.

enough! Please continue to provide Beth with good rest & a way of escape from her "world" at work.
Thank You for my sweet sister Denise's prayer. Lord, You know Denise's health & financial situation! We praise You for the unexpectant blessing but we humbly ask for more to be done for Denise & Eddie. Grant Denise a complete overhaul recovery of her health.
I stand with Beth's prayer & Denise's, and I know it is NOT Your will for Your children to suffer.
Give Denise the medical wisdom & strength to pursue healing! Keep her well & her levels under control
by You! We are not in control, You are and we surrender to You & Your will but yet You require us to do our part! We ask this in Jesus' Name! Thank You Lord for this upcoming Sunday that Denise will enjoy church with her dad & Lovebug! This is awesome! And it is because of Your Divine Providence!

I am nothing without You, Lord Jesus. Keep me pursuing You & Your Kingdom & help me to be a better

Judith said...

A prayer that I use from the Northumbria Community.

Christ, as a light illumine and guide me.
Christ, as a shield overshadow me.
Christ under me;
Christ over me;
Christ beside me on my left and my right.
This day be within and without me,
lowly and meek, yet all-powerful.
Be in the heart of each to whom I speak;
in the mouth of each who speakes unto me.
This day be within and without me,
lowly and meek, yet all powerful.
Christ as a light;
Christ as a shield;
Christ beside me on my left and my right. Amen

Dear Lord God,
We praise you that you are the great I Am, our Hope and all that we need. 

Thank you that your ears are always open to our prayers. Thank you for your sweet child, Peggy, who loves you so. Draw her children and mine to you, so they will know and love you as Lord of their lives. Give her your peace, and show her your will for her life. 

Meet all the needs our friends have requested here, and even those unrequested, for you know them all. Bless each and every one and their families. In Jesus name, Amen

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.
