PERSONAL PRAYER REQUESTS and HOW THE LIGHTHOUSE WORKS

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.

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,

Amen

Peggy said...

Heavenly Father...

I humbly come before You this morning and thank You for this place to lift Your Name & the hearts of many that need prayer. Open the doors of heaven, Lord
and let Your Love, Grace, Mercies and healing flow.

I praise You today! I give You all Glory, Honor & Praise! I lift my arms in sweet surrender. Take away anything in me that is not of You!

LORD, I stand together with my sisters Beth & Denise! I hold Beth's job situation before You.
Keep her from the remarks and hold her back from responding. Help her walk away as she says. Thank You, for my sweet sister Denise that she comes daily and lifts up a prayer here. Bless her Lord. You know her needs. She rarely asks for herself though her heart and life are full of many requests. Give her the desires of her heart. Refresh her
this day and allow Your Holy Spirit to touch her with strength & more healing. You are Lord in our lives!

Again LORD, we lift Beth's children to You and I add my two also that are not walking with You as well as my husband. Bring them each to a saving knowledge of You, a need for You above all else, an acceptance of seeds that are sown. We stand together for those who do not yet know You that You will draw them unto You! We thank You for this and all that You are doing in their lives. Protect them & keep them from all harm. Lead them & guide them daily. Place someone in their lives that can show them Jesus in a way that they can not resist but must submit! Salvation belongs to the Lord. And these we place before You.

Protect Beth in her goings & comings with the weather. Bless her Bible study small group this evening. Do not let anything
cause confusion, division or
distraction from ALL You desire
for each one to take away from there. I ask for Your Holy Spirit to come and direct the leadership.
Bless Beth for her constant giving
and desiring to be closer to You!

A NEW DAY...a fresh way...to ask You into our thoughts, actions &
ministry to others. Heal us & help us move forward in You & Your plan
for us. I commit this LIGHTHOUSE OF PRAYER to You & Thank You in Jesus'
Name!

Denise said...

Abba,

I am here today. You see me, You know I am ill. Please allow me to rest and heal from this illness.

I pray for continued healing for Denise of her medical problems and Your wisdom and guidance for all who are treating her. Please continue to provide for Denise and Eddie in their daily provisions in the form of blessings from You.

I thank you for Denise. She is a light unto us, Lord. Even in the midst of her trials and illness, she still continues to see and praise You in every circumstance.

I ask that You continue to bless Peggy in her work in Mexico. Lead her where You want her to be in this mission. Please provide for her financially in her missions work as well as her personal life.

I lift up her two children and her husband to You, Lord, that they may come to know and love You as she does.
Let her rest in the assurance that You are in control of this situation and help her to surrender her children and husband to You, knowing that You will bring them to You in Your perfect timing.

I love you, Jesus. Thank you for sacrificing Your life for me.

In Your Name--Highest above all else,

Amen

Denise said...

Travel mercies for all the people in this winter storm Lord...grant
protection & safety from the heavy snow & ice conditions. Keep the people off the roads.

Grant healing, strength and energy
to Beth but still allow her to remain at home safely & rest. Help her supervisor to realize how difficult this is for her. Bring kindness & understanding!

Thank You Lord for Denise's faithfulness & prayers.

Praise You Lord for keeping me & providing more than enough once more for this month until the 3rd of next month, I am blessed even after paying my rent increase.
My electricity bill was greatly decreased from the surprise high
one of last month. Only YOU!
Thank You for all the prayer support from Beth & Denise!

You are my sufficiency! You are more than enough! You provide for the sparrows & You have shown me Your Divine extension of my monthly amount to cover everything! You are amazing Jehovah Jireh! I praise You!

You are the Great Physician for Beth & Denise! Thank You as You bring Your healing hands to anoint them both with renewed strength in
You. Your Grace is sufficient! You supply all our needs! You heal with the balm of Gilead! Miracles are in Your hands. Bless Your Holy Name!

This is an update prayer request from Caring Bridge for Leslie, daughter of Dineen Miller from Spiritually Unequal Marriage and Kittens Come From Eggs.

"...please join me in praying Leslie though these last eight treatments so she can be done by the end of next week. We are so close! Soon all this will be a memory and she can focus on healing and growing her hair back! Sadly, the radiation had taken some of that away too, but we can pray for God to restore her beautiful hair as well!"

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.
