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.

My Father,

I was just sitting outside having my morning coffee. I looked up at the sky and marveled at the stars--the stars You set in the sky, and I thanked You for their creation. How beautiful and wondrous are Your many creations!!

I come to You this morning with praise in my heart, praise only for You. You are the one who lifts me up, who carries me. Why do I turn elsewhere? Why do I not immediately turn to You, Lord?

You know me inside and out, know me and created me--a unique creation made by You. I thank You this morning for all the blessings You have bestowed upon me--my children, my home, always providing for me, always being there for me. I know You see me, I know You hear me. My faith and hope for this life lie in You.

Help me, Lord, to keep my path straight and narrow--the path You will lead me on. Keep me from turning to the left or the right, and help me to hear Your voice with me saying, "This is the way, child, this is the way."

Your works are many! I marvel at each bird with its individual song--amazing to me!

And now, the seasons changing once again--buds appearing on trees, flowers pushing their way to life through the earth after remaining dormant through the winter--all done by You, God!! Spring--new life, new hope--all by and for You!

Help me through this day, especially when I am pushed to my limits--give me strength, patience and the words to say. Let my words be few and Your words be many.

I love you, Lord, with all my heart, my soul, my strength. I know that I have been distant lately, and I ask that You forgive me for this. But, even in my distance, You have been there waiting for me, watching over me--and I thank You for always being present in my life.

Thank You for creating me uniquely, and lead me, Lord. Lead me to where the abilities You have given me will best serve You. Give me the strength and stamina to carry out Your will for me in this life.

In Jesus' Name I pray,

Amen

Colossians 1:16
"For by Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him."

Heavenly Creator of all things,

Thank You for all things in Heaven and on earth created by You alone.
Praise You for the visible & invisible that You create!
I adore You, as the Almighty Creator of all!

I bow to Your Holy Authority over all thrones, powers, rulers and authorities! But as I surrender to You, I ask for Your Mighty hand and wisdom be on all earthly authorities, that You have placed or allowed to rule so that Your purposes will be accomplished!
Since they were created by You & for You, may they hear from You & seek Your direction as they lead, decide and govern our nations. Protect Christians that are being persecuted by many in authority!
May You keep them safe under Your Wing and Your Divine Protection!
Place a hedge of protection around
them and our governing leaders & families in Jesus Name, I pray!

Praise You Lord of lords, King of kings! Be exalted above all!

Dear heavenly Father, I praise You for Your goodness to me everyday of my life. You are pouring blessings all over my life, and I praise Your holy name. You meet my every need, and so much more. I love You more than mere words could ever express. Here I am, I am Yours. Amen

Denise said...

Lord, thank You for blessing me with a brand new day. I love being a part of this beautiful world that was created by Your precious hands. Help me to shine for You dear Lord. I love You beyond measure. Amem

Denise said...

To God be all honor and praise. You reign supreme forever and ever.My heart overflows with love for You Father, there is none more deserving of my love and worship, only You. Amen

Peggy said...

Father in heaven, thank You for helping me and holding me in Your victorious right hand.

I choose to trust You even when things don’t make sense, even when things seem beyond my control. I release my cares to You knowing that You work all things together for my good.

Your Grace is enough!

I rejoice with my sisters Denise & Beth & all others that pass through
here! I praise You that each morning I can come here and exalt You, when I have needs or requests,
You already know & wait for me to come to You! Thank You, Papa! You, who created all things, care for me
and show Your love daily.

I share more prayer concerns below.
Please hold on to Jennifer & Stellan & the whole family! You knit Stellan in His mother's womb
and created a miracle. You are God
and there is no one else with the Divine Providence, Power & protection for breathing miracles!

My Father,

I come to You today with a humble heart. I waited and waited until I came to You with all that was burdening me--knowing that You already knew--and still I waited to talk with You.

And when I finally did--Ah, the peace that surrounded me--the wisdom You gave me, the words You filled my heart and voice with!! How can I ever thank You enough!!

I come to You this morning with many concerns around me--You know my heart and mind. You have quieted my soul and allowed me to speak to both of my daughters and my son--allowed me to settle issues in a sensible manner rather than arguments that could have ensued--issues dealt with in love, Your love, even allowing me to share Your love and how this has changed me and can change them.

Thank You, my Father!! Thank You for all that You have done for me and will continue to do.

In Jesus' Name I pray,

Amen

Denise said...

Father, I just want to praise You. You bring so much happiness into my life, You keep me safe, and well. I love You so very , very much, and always will. Amen

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.
