A Blessed & Happy New Year



... let's start the year right in prayer for one another ...

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.

WORSHIP JESUS through REVELATION


Oh HOW I LOVE TO WORSHIP JESUS!!!

For years now, the Names of God have drawn me closer to knowing Our LORD and I've searched many times for books and information on the Names of Jesus. I receive daily a wonderful devotional on "Praying the Names of God" by Ann Spangler. Each week, we focus on one of those Names. Then just this week, I came across a beautiful series from John Barnett, "Living Hope for the End of Days" on Revelation and the very first one was "Worship the Christ of Revelation"!

What is WORSHIP?

John Barnett defines WORSHIP in this way..."Worship is the submission of all our nature to God." Then Chapter by Chapter he shows us how Jesus reveals Himself to us in Revelation
through His Divine names. It is such a treasure to find Our Lord unveiling His Deity through the 22 chapters of Revelation. Then he challenges us to search:

"For a wonderful worship experience in Revelation, search for all the names and titles of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Over the next few weeks, begin your search by looking, chapter by chapter, for the names and titles of Christ in Revelation.(more than 67 times). As you mark each one, ask yourself the “So what?” question:
So what does Jesus as the ____ ______ (fill in a name or title) mean in my life for today?"

WORSHIP CHRIST IN ALL HIS MAJESTY! WORSHIP HIM IN ALL HIS GLORIOUS NAMES!

IN REVELATION
HE IS...

Chapter 1...faithful witness, Alpha & Omega, Beginning & the End, Ruler over the kings of the earth, the Almighty, the First & the Last, the firstborn from the dead, the Son of Man, the Living One
Chapter 2...Administrator of the church
Chapter 3...the Faithful and True witness
Chapter 4...the One who sits on the Throne
Chapter 5...Lion of the tribe of Judah
Chapter 6...Wrathful Lamb
Chapter 7...Redeeming Lamb and Providing Lamb
Chapter 8...patient collector of our prayers
Chapter 9...holds back the monsters from the abyss
Chapter 10...Creator of heaven and earth and sea
Chapter 11...Christ, the Lord God Almighty
Chapter 12...the Christ, the Lamb, Jesus
Chapter 13...the Lamb, whose is the Book of Life
Chapter 14...the Son of Man, the Lamb on Mount Zion
Chapter 15...the King of Saints
Chapter 16...the One who was and is and is to be
Chapter 17...Lord of lords, and King of kings
Chapter 18...Lord God
Chapter 19...Word of God
Chapter 20...Jesus, the Christ
Chapter 21...Alpha & Omega, the Lord God Almighty
Chapter 22...the Lamb, the Lord God, the Bright and Morning Star...

...these are just some of the wonderful Names & Attributes of God to get us started...

Come Let us Worship Him, Adore Him and Praise His Name Forever & Ever!!!



Learn to practice noticing God's Presence during each day, making worship a daily habit. As you cultivate a life of worship, you become an instrument of worship more & more and you will reap the fruits of worship. Then you will serve Christ & worship Christ through your service. We can serve Christ in any place, at any time, in any way, and make a choice to live in HOPE, no matter how we are...serve Christ.

My Father,

I come today to worship You. You are my God and my King. I am amazed by Your love for me, the wonders I see around me daily.

I come today with questions upon my heart, Lord. You have saved my life--saved me for a purpose. Please make clear to me what that purpose is, Your plans for me. I want to serve, I want to serve effectively, give You my best. Show me where, show me how.

Show me what You want me to do, Lord. I have said that if You lead me, I will follow and run hard after You. So, lead me on, Lord.

You have given me talents, my spiritual gifts. Lord, I ask You to show me how best to use these gifts to serve others. In serving others, I am serving You and worshiping You.

Lead me to a life of worship.

In Jesus' Name,

Amen

Omah's Helping Hands said...

Heavenly Father, most gracious and merciful. You have blessed us in so many ways and I thank you. You are an all loving Father. I worship you and give myself to you.
I lift your name on High and live to serve you. Thank you sweet Jesus for your blood shed for our sins. We are not deserving of your Love. I lay my life down for you.

Oh most merciful Lord, please reach out to Sarah Cordero, her husband and her child to be. Help them to find work again, and a home for your precious child to be born in a few more months. Lift them up to you and let them feel you love. She is a good daughter walking in faith of you daddy. Help them to see the direction you wish them to walk. Let them hear of any sins that need to be repented, help them to shake the enemy that continues to nip at their heels.
For you are the God of all. You are stronger than any enemy that throws the fiery darts. With the armor of God you protect us. Annoint them with the Blood of Jesus and seal it in Jesus name.
We lift Sarah and her family up to you now Father knowing you are the healer of healers, you will repair the brokeness in their lives and touch them with renewed strength.
Thank you Father God. Thank you. You are the Almighty Alpha and Omega. In Jesus Sweet and Holy Name we pray, Amen.
Just a note, the young woman is 23 married one year ago, they both were laid off of work, unemployment is about to run out, she is 5 1/2 mos. pregnant, so please be praying for them.

Peggy said...

Heavenly Father, I stand beside and join together with these prayers for Sarah, her husband & child to be. Her life is facing so many difficulties but we place Sarah &
all her problems in Your Holy hands. Surround Sarah with prayer warriors and encouragement! Give her Your strength and provision!
Father, may You make a way for them. Open doors in employment and financial avenues to them. Restore Hope in You as the world seems to being collapsing unjustly around this newly married mom with a sweet blessing from You! Protect her & her child. Keep them all under Your mighty wings of healing.

We thank You for who You are, the One who was and is and is to be! Be all this & more to Sarah. May she feel the prayers being lifted to the Throne and sense Your Almighty Presence. May the Word of God be a lamp unto her feet. May others or family find a heart to help Sarah
through this heavy time. Pour Your love on Sarah and draw her close to
You, Papa. She is yours and You are hers. Reach her & touch her in Jesus Name. May Sarah hear Your Voice & You whisper ever so clearly Your plan for her & this new life within her! Pour out Your blessings O LORD! and renew a right spirit!

Denise said...

Dear heavenly Father, please pour out sweet blessings all over Sarah and her husband. Please meet their every need, love on them Lord. Amen

My sweet friend Michelle received this prayer request, and asked if I would share it.: I just received an email from a woman in Canada who is in dire need of prayer right now. She is in a great amount of physical and emotion pain. Her husband is unable to cope with her health issues and wants to separate. They are in financial distress too due to her health issues. She is so desperate that she said she sometimes thinks about taking her own life! Please lift this dear Christian woman in your prayers. She says she is a believer. Prayer: Dear heavenly Father, please watch over this dear one. She is feeling so down, physically, and emotionally. I pray that she will be lifted high up to the lofty resting place of Your love and peace. Please open her husbands eyes to the needs of his wife, may he see her through eyes of love. I love You Father. Amen

sailorcross said...

My Father,

I come to You today to bring the cares and concerns of Michelle regarding Your child. You know, Lord, her physical and emotional pain. I pray that You lift this from her so that she may feel comfort and rest, both in her body and mind.

Quiet her mind, Lord. Help her to focus on You and Your love for her. Draw her close and let her feel Your love pouring through into her.

I also pray for her husband, that he see her need and be by her side, being her helpmate, as You created him to be. He also needs Your love and support in His life during this difficult time with his wife.

Help both of these people to turn to You for comfort rather than to outside sources. Their needs will be met by You and You alone, Lord. Keep them in Your peace.

In Jesus' Name I pray,

Amen

Special PRAYER Request shared by Peggy from Project Rescue:

Dear Friends,

We returned last week from an incredible month in India where we met together with Project Rescue leadership from around the country. It was a powerful time of prayer as we sought God's direction and planned strategically for the upcoming months.
During these meetings, several decisions were discussed that require immediate prayer. Would you consider partnering with us in prayer this month for the following needs:

1. Nagpur, India: The Project Rescue home in Nagpur is located right on the edge of the red light district, posing safety issues for our older girls. Getting them out of this area is an urgent priority and PR leadership has made plans to do so within the next month. Please pray that we are able to find and secure a suitable location quickly!

2. Pune, India: The lease on the Home of Hope is ended in two months and the landlord is not willing to extend the lease. Site leadership are actively looking for a potential home to purchase. Present estimates are $250,000 - $300,000. Please pray with us for God's timing and provision in this regard.
3. Kolkata, India: The vocational center has become critical for income for women regularly coming from the district and for the ministry there. The present lease is up in August and cannot be renewed. Our site leader is actively looking for a building near the red light district where the woman's vocational training center can be relocated. Please pray with us!
4. PRAISE REPORT! An official PR ministry in Bangladesh will begin next year at the request of the General Superintendent of Bangladesh.

5. PRAISE REPORT! AGWM Personnel in Delhi have been meeting together with local leaders, now focusing on united prayer and prayer walks into one of the the five red light districts there. God is doing a new thing in Delhi!

Thank you so much for joining us in prayer and thanksgiving. We believe that God is going to do the miraculous in order to make his name known in India!

With sincere gratitude,

David and Beth Grant

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.
