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.

Heavenly Father...I bring this precious child Abby to You & I ask You to do more than what the Riggs ask that Abby be comfortable, I ask that You do a supernatural miracle in Abby...cause this infection to stop, cause this cancer cells to decease, cause her white blood cells to be increased quicker than normal and bring as much HEALING as Abby needs to no longer battle with all her strength. But give her Your strength, Your victory, Your healing from the top of her little head right down to her toes in Jesus' Name.

I join the Riggs often in their prayers but today I decided to ask more people to arm together around this child & family as we take the authority of Christ over this cancer & the chemo treatments & all medical procedures. You are more powerful than any of this! I believe that You can speak healing into Abby. She has gone through so much! Please touch her precious life with Your great LOVE & HEALING!

You are the Great Physician for Abby! You are the One that can make the impossibles possible. Lord, we place every aspect of Abby's beautiful little life in Your Hands to bring Glory to Your Name. Give her comfort & strength! Sustain her
in all ways. We cast all the Rigg's cares on You! Carry them.

Take the family into better health and fight off this stomach problem in each one by the power of Jesus.
Give them the strength they need to be there with Abby! Supply their needs...especially with healthy food! Restore their health also!

We ask that You heal Brent with this spot forming and please help him respond to the antibiotics.

We thank You for loving the Riggs and being there with them in their Hi & Lo moments. We thank You for surrounding them with people to uphold Abby & them in prayer. Bless them Lord daily with a little smile or sunshine sent their way.

Encourage them frequently so they will be able to draw close to You! Thank You for the Light they are to others in the hospital! Give them wisdom in every decision from medical ones to parenting ones!

I give You the list of 70 people that have left prayer requests for themselves and others on their blog. Most of them seem to be for healing & health concerns, some are for recent losses of loved ones.

Send Your Holy Spirit to fill them with Comfort & wise Counsel & be the Healer to restore many to good health through Your power & strength. We thank You for all healing that You do & give You the glory! We claim Isaiah 53:5 & proclaim that by His stripes Abby, the Rigg's & each person on this list are healed.

Thank You Jesus for being wounded for our transgressions & bruised for our iniquities. Thank You for the chastisement for our peace that You took upon You! Praise You for Your Love & such a great sacrifice You gave so we may be restored to You!

Denise said...

Lord, please lay Your healing hands upon this precious child. Give much love, and comfort to her family. I love You Lord, and I believe in Your healing powers. Amen

Peggy said...

Father, Thank You for blessing us so graciously. As we seek to live according to Your Will as we say "Your Will be done", may we experience the blessings of miracles of healing, the beautiful blessings of Your Presence, being in Your Presence, surrounded by Your Presence in all Your Glory
as You touch lives with Your Power and grace. I thank You for this!

Please bless me with wisdom to better know Your will and the courage to live it & follow it,
give me more discernment. Bring that same wisdom to all the medical people involved with those we lift before You for healing and good reports for Denise, Abby, the Rigg's family, Denise's dad & father-in-law and even her brother-in-law. In Jesus' name. Thank You!
Nothing is impossible with You!

Praise be to the Lord Almighty!
There is none like You! Hear us, O Lord & grant us Your Mercies & Grace this day!

Precious Cody woke up in the arms of his Savior at 8:00am this morning from his battle with cancer. Pray for his family.

[You can view their site here:]

Heavenly Father, Welcome Cody into Your loving arms where there is no more suffering or pain, no more tears! Please send Your Holy Comforter to his precious family!
Surround the children & parents with many to help them grieve & also rejoice! Walk with them through the days ahead. Be with them when their hearts can't understand! Surround them with Your Love & PEACE with good memories of their precious son Cody! Hold them together & knit their hearts as one, blessing them with loving friends & all the help they need to face this & move forward to bring You Glory. Sweetly & tenderly Jesus they need You, touch their lives this day in Jesus' precious Name.

Peggy said...

Lord, I'm still holding Abby before you in prayer & also Cody's family for comfort and peace! A peace that passes all understanding flood their hearts & home.

Here are the prayer requests from the Riggs update on Abby:
Please pray for:

- infection healed
- pain relief
- liver to be healed
- strength and wisdom for Brent and I (that's Michelle-Abby's mom & dad)

Father God, We place this precious child into Your Healing hands and again I stand on Your Word & promise, that whatever we ask in Your Name: I seek miracles for
Abby...ease her pain, increase her white blood cells...heal this infection in Jesus Name, bring healing to the bleeding ulcer & her liver, lower these enzymes that are so high...continue to reveal solutions for Abby's port and may this new one work with no side effects or irritations! May all the drugs her poor little body is taking bring about good results!

Continue to give Brent & Michelle Your wisdom as they seek the best Counsel from the Great Physician, You...who in turn will speak to all the medical personnel involved with Abby! Give Brent & Michelle Your strength to keep up with this battle and stay ahead of the game.

Be with their friends and each one that is facing this battle with cancer especially with kids. We know that You are more powerful than cancer. So in the authority of Christ, release all Your healing into Abby & give her body the strength to fight in Jesus' Name.
Greater is He that is in Abby than he that is of this world. May the joy of the Lord be the Rigg Family's strength today & each day
fill them with this & Your infinite mercies & grace!

IRENE said...

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Dear God, please show Your tender look to Abby. Comfort her physical pain and strengthen her body. Soften her soul to know You and feel Your presence embrace her and lift her from illness.
Please God, shed Your light to her doctors so that they know Your will and how to perform it for Abby's best interests.
Please God bring strength and courage to her family.
Because You are the Healer of our souls and our bodies and to You is the glory, now and always. Amen.

Peggy said...

Heavenly Father,

Thank You for bringing Irene here to join us in lifting poor little Abby and her current needs before You! Continue to shed wisdom on the medical staff and the Rigg's family, especially Brent & Michelle
in every aspect. Continue to find ways to break the fever & the infection in Jesus power & authority for healing and All glory to the Father, Son & Holy Spirit now & forever. Thank You for more joining in prayer!

Lord, I bring Beth before you for healing. Thank You that she has now gone to the doctor and found out what is wiping her out. But You knew. So we place Beth and all these health concerns in your hands: right ear infection, a right sinus infection, strep throat and possibly the flu!!!

You are the Great Physician so we trust You in helping Beth break her 102 fever, take away her chills,
heal the infections & keep her under Your wings of healing! Give her work sufficient help and her enough time at home to heal with their understanding! We praise You, Father, Son & Holy Spirit for You are alone are worthy of our continual thanks & praise!

Almighty Father, Since I am praying for healing, I also bring Leslie that I & others have been lifting to the throne. You have been doing great and marvelous things for her & her family. Give her strength now as she has finished her chemo. Continue to surround Dineen & Mike and their daughters with signs and wonders that draw them closer together and into Your Divine Presence, thanking You & coming to know You closely that You are Leslie's Healer! We thank You & praise You for what You are doing!
Thank You for the great testimony this is to Your faithfulness & love!

We exalt You! We praise You! We thank You in all things!

Peggy said...

Lord, It breaks my heart the number of children that are malnourished and 300 million children are going to bed hungry tonight & each night. Pour out Your Manna to them & stir up people's hearts to do whatever they can. If we are struggling, I can't even imagine the immense impact this has on these little ones. The devastation of our moral
outrage! I'm sure You shake Your head when You look at us.

Today is Global Day of Food Crisis & Compassion International needs many to join them in this fight, and I ask You Lord to send & move hearts to contribute. Forgive me Lord for not doing as much as I can. I pray that You bring a spiritual blessing on those who give & move mightily through Compassion to decrease these numbers.

Heavenly Father, I do not know where are all the people that should be sharing in prayer but I ask You once more to draw people here to lift others in prayer in Jesus Name! One moment each day to offer a prayer here for one other person or even for themselves.
Thank You for those that You do lead here and the faithful that daily pray!

Thank You for the privilege to pray for others!

Peggy said...

Lord Jesus, You are Beth's, Beth's daughter and son's Great Physician.
We have an urgent prayer for her daughter and we know all healing comes from You! You are her healer!
There is nothing too difficult for You! Thank You for Your healing power!

Your Word says that healing is Your children's bread! It reminds us that You are the LORD that heals!
We call on You Jehovah Rapha. And by Your stripes may they each be healed & give Beth resistance to continue fighting off this viral.

Her daughter needs Your special healing balm LORD, You know her well and her medical situation & weakness because of her asthma, she is so vulnerable & weak! I believe that as I claim Your Word, it will not return void...and I speak forth healing and health to this family.

Wisdom for the medical personnel in ER or even the hospital so that her daughter is carefully monitered in Jesus Name that they would act on the side of caution rather than take any chances.

Your Word says that You took these infirmities and carried their sickness. So miraculously take this now in Jesus Name & we believe that she will receive healing now & vitality, strength to defend her
from fever, infection and this viral affecting her respiratory. Breathe a fresh breath of Your Spirit into her lungs, strength her, build up their resistances to fight and be victorious over this now in Jesus Name. You are Mighty and All Powerful! Jesus You healed everyone who came to You in faith so in faith I come to You on her behalf. May healing pour forth all over Beth, her daughter, and her son. You are more powerful than any illness & their is strength under Your wings. Cover this family with Your Wings of Love & healing...with health being restored. You are the balm of Gilead. I believe that You can cause all this to bring Glory to You.

I claim this scripture and Ps.91 and the many confessions of healing scriptures in Your Word:
Isaiah 53:4-5
Surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered Him stricken by God, smitten by Him, and afflicted. But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we(they) (she) (he) are/is healed.

Thank You Lord for hearing our prayers!!! Thank You for Your answers! We love You LORD, trusting You to fulfill Your promises.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, I needed to come here today to pour out my heart to You. I needed to come and sit at Your throne, to rest in You and wait patiently for You.

Father, my family and I need Your will to be done in our lives. We need Your leading, Your direction, Your EVERYTHING.

Jesus, the storms are so great, but with You we are able to sleep in the boat while the storms are all around us.

You have a purpose for each and everyone of us. Heal them so that they may carry out your designs for them. We ask this in Jesus Name. Thank you Father for your merciful loving, healing hands. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

Peggy said...

Almighty & Most Holy & Magnificent Father, You hold the keys to life & death! You hold the power of miracles! You are the Great Physician! You hold Stellan & his precious life in Your hands! We come to You & cry out to You that You would once more breathe Your precious life and healing into Stellan. Continue to touch His mom & family with a peace that passes all understanding, give her comfort
and help her cold to heal also. You sent Your Son Jesus, to the cross that by His stripes, Stellan is healed! We praise You & thank You for each and every beat of his fragile heart! Hold him & his family in Your Loving arms meeting them in each moment with Hope, Peace and aMazing strength. Send Your wisdom & compassion to the medical personnel involved! Keep
reaching down & restoring Stellan
to how You created and formed him in his mother's womb. You know him from the beginning & know every detail! Thank You for each moment

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.
