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.

Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus & blessed Holy Spirit, I lift all the prayers from the above post to Your Holy Throne & claim the Name of Jesus & the power of His blood over each petition of Bernice. Thank You Lord that she came here & lifted these precious ones before You.

Thank You for Angela & Fearless Friday! Bless this great ministry & opportunity for others to join in prayer. Thank You LORD that Angela continues to pray. We will not be discouraged, we will never stop praying, the enemy will not win here in this.

Thank You for Denise that comes faithfully to pray.

Thank You for Beth's prayer. We place Cara under Your constant wings of healing & that You would be with her throughout her pregnancy & draw her to You! We
ask You to calm her anxieties & fears. Keep both her & her baby
healthy & well. Give her strength
throughout this high risk. Continue
to guide all the medical personnel.
Bring peace to her & Beth as You watch & care for them. You are Great God & we thank You for all You are doing to make Yourself known in Your Greatness to Cara &
strengthen Ryan to come to You on behalf of them. Bless him & prosper him so that he can take care. Touch
Rod & Jim and see them through their health situations with peace & assurance as they trust in You.

I stand in one accord with the petitions of Bernice. She has done just what this place is for and we ask You to bless her & hear her. Grant her many blessings Lord. Restore her energy & health in Jesus Name. Help her medical professionals to determine whatever she may need. Put her hormones in balance & bring her a clear, sound mind. Take away all fear as You establish more patience, peace & confidence in You. May she trust in You!

Thank You Lord for her heart for the children & the babies that need Your touch. Ohhh Lord, there are so many needs and so few standing in prayer her but I thank You for each one that lifts these families constantly and that You are healing
Skylar, April Rose, Kay Leigh & Stellan to glorify You in their lives.

We lift up Bernice's great aunt nene Dina for healing of her heart. You are great & mighty oh Lord. Heal her sweet heart & care for her. Bring the forgiveness of those who have not properly cared for her nor treated her well. Though she is not where she'd like to be, give her grace & good care from loving hands that she deserves.

Thank You for the prayer for Lisa. Strength her also LORD. Remove any fear in her and bring her Your peace. May she be surrounded by many to lift her to You as she waits. Bring wisdom in her & those diagnosing her situation. LORD, I do not know it but You do & You are there attending to every detail.

LORD, I lift the urgent prayer requests of Denise, on behalf of this boy and his cruel, mistreatment that the school officials will be more understanding, compassionate & explain & treat this much better.


We place Michele & her daughter in Your Healing hands Jehovah Rapha. During this time of healing & surgery LORD, we beg that You stop all pain for Heather since she cannot take pain meds...it has to come from Your Mighty All powerful caring & love for Heather & Michele. Continue to be with them & protect them with Your infinite peace. May all healing come as You bore infirmities & sickness on the cross for Heather. Touch her Lord!
Be with her through this. In Jesus Name we pray.

We glorify You Great & All Powerful LORD of the healing & All power, honor & glory be Yours now & forevermore. Thank You for hearing our needs & our prayers. We love You & are eternally grateful to You!

Hello Marsha's Musings followers.

This is Missy, Marsha's daughter.
I wanted to let you all know that Mom is on her way now, (Sunday night) to PA.

She is driving by herself at this late hour, so please pray for her, for her safety, coherence, and peace of mind.

My Grandpa, her step-father, Chris, is fast approaching the end of his stay on this earth. It seems that the Lord has chosen these next hours to finally bring Him home.
Please pray for him, that his passing will be smooth, and that he will rest comfortably knowing that he will soon be with His Savior.
Pray for Nana, Mom's mom, Eleanor, as she says goodbye to her husband of 31 years.

I pray that Mom is able to get there in time to be with her at his passing.

Mom asked me to let you all know of this because she knows you will pray.

I will update you tomorrow or sooner if necessary.

I know she covets your prayers.

God Bless,
Missy

Heavenly Father,

We ask for travel safety for Marsha! Be her guard on all sides!
Protect her, comfort her, bring her
Your everlasting peace & wisdom!

Wrap your loving arms around their mom & stepdad! Hold them closely & preserve strength until Marsha can be there. Thank You that they know You & put their trust in You! Fill them with steadfast grace & love.
Sustain each one in the family. Keep them united in prayers as they grieve. May You be their strength & their shield. An Ever present help
in this time of need. Holy Spirit be their comfort. Give them wisdom & direct their path in decisions. Be with Michele & Marsha as they lean on You for their strength, comfort and guidance. Surround them in Your unfailing love in Jesus Name! Thank You for Missy & hold each one in the family close to You!

Denise said...

Dear heavenly Father, I lift my sweet friend Angela up to You today. She is dealing with so many different types of problems, and they are really beginning to weigh her down. She is feeling very overwhelmed,please come and sit with her awhile. Love on her Father, comfort her hurting heart. I love You Father. Amen

Denise said...

Prayer Update: My sister, Marsha, arrived safe and sound to be with our mother and step father in PA. Thank you so much for your continued prayers. She travelled most of the night only getting 2 1/2 hours of sleep. His eyes are glassy, very disoriented, shallow breathing, speaking incoherently in English and Swedish, retaining fluid, and when he saw that Marsha was there he asked her if it was alright now if he could go now. She told him, "yes." He is ready to go "home". We just don't know when. Pray for mom, this is very difficult on anyone, let alone someone who is 86 years old and loosing her husband of 31 years.

My heart and mind is with them as well. It is so hard for me to be across country during this time when I want to be there and hold them all, but we will be back there this Summer.

Thank you again for your continued prayers. God bless you all.

Denise said...

Hi dear blog friends for your prayers. I did attempt to drive straight through the 12-13 hours to PA, but ended up stopping at 3:00 a.m. for 3 hours at a rest stop and sleeping in the car.

My stepdad is a shell of the man I saw in January. He's skin and bones, very disoriented and his speech is slurred and contains disjointed thoughts. His body and organs are shutting down.

He was relieved when he saw I had arrived. He was able to give me a big smile. :)

Please pray he will be spared further pain and the Lord would call his name soon. I sensed to presence of His angels in the room today preparing to take him. I think my stepdad saw them because he kept pointing to this one area of the room and looking at us to see if we saw what he was seeing.

Pray for my Mom to come to reality about her husband’s eminent departure. She’s still holding on the hope that she can bring him home.

Pray we all have a good night’s sleep. We’re all exhausted.

Thank you for your continued prayer for me and my family.

Denise said...

Dear heavenly Father, I lift Marsha and Michele, and the rest of their family up to You. Please help their mom to accept that it is time for her precious husband to go home with You. Give her peace, and comfort her hurting heart. I love You Father. Amen

SILVER said...

It's so wonderful dropping by here today-

I love this song too. i enjoy worshipping with my church and we have this song often in our Sunday morning services.

Denise said...

Update on Marsha and Michelles stepfather: Oh my, what a roller coaster today has been!
His mind is overtaken with talk about things that have never happened. He's got a bed sore that is causing pain.

The pulmonary physician assistant came in and told us that he is in congestive heart failure and that's probably what will take him here at the end.

By the time we left this evening, his face (and body for that matter) is all sunken in. It's a very difficult sight for my mother to see. Please pray for her. Lord knows what tomorrow will bring.

I'll be talking with the doctor Wednesday morning around 7:00. Please pray we will be truthful and upfront with us about what we need to do next - his prognosis. I feel he needs hospice care now, but the decision is made through the doctor who is saying lets just go day to day.

Well, I'm sitting here nodding off as I type this. I must get to bed.

Thank you! Thank you for your prayers! They are definitely felt.

Denise said...

Prayer requests from Marsha: Thank you to all of you for being understanding of why I am unable to visit right now. My only computer time is a late at night right now. Please know that I cherish each comment and prayer and will come by sometime in the weeks to come and thank each of you.

There is so much going on with our family right now, I’m thankful for God’s grace to see us through it.

My hubby’s health has still not cleared up. He’s having an endoscopy done on Friday.

My daughter Laura is still stunned over the theft at their home last week. We’re praising the Lord that they are all alright.

My son-in-love, Stacy was told today their car dealership is closing on Wednesday.

My daughter, Missy needs a hysterectomy and it is being moved to this Monday while they still have insurance. I feel terrible I can’t be there to help her. But, I know I am where I am supposed to be.

Please pray with me concerning the health and job needs of my family and for the continued safety of Laura and her family in Kenya and wisdom in how to replace the stolen items. (No insurance.)

Denise said...

Dear heavenly Father, I come to You on behalf of a woman by the name of April. She goes to church with me Father. She recently had a baby, and she is now suffering from postpartem depression. She has been having sucidal thoughts, and is really hurting Father. Please wrap Your loving, caring arms around her. Pour Your love, and peace all over her life. Please protect her from satan, and his wicked, evil thoughts. I love You Father. Amen

Peggy said...

Oh Father God, So many prayer needs, and so few prayer warriors!
Thank You for the ones who come & share their heart with You! The pressing concerns of so many are overwhelming!

Thank You Lord for Denise's faithfulness to praying here & sharing the many prayer concerns that she notices in the blog world & those that are in her REAL world.

I stand with Denise, LORD for Vicki & her husband! You are greater than cancer! You are His comfort, His healing, their peace & strength in their present time of need, their constant help! Please be with them as You see them through each part of this crisis. You are his Healer!
Also for April, as she deals with this pit. Rescue her from this hormonal depression & surround her with Your love. These thoughts of the enemy, the liar, the thief of her joy of her new baby, must leave her now in Jesus Name. Protect her Lord & keep her from all harm & this evil one. These thoughts are not from You. You are her Father. You love her! Breathe life & good thoughts over her. Take away her pain & suffering! Set her on solid ground! Take her out of this pit!
Give her a sound mind! For You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power & love & a sound mind.

LORD, I unite in prayer with Bernice & for Marsha & Michele's prayer needs. Be with them. Lighten their pain & their many loads. Continue to bring safety to Laura & wisdom for them. Be with Missy!
Cover & saturate them with Your love, healing, strength, comfort, peace, wisdom, direction, job security, protection, healing! So many health concerns. We lift up
them all to You. Be with Marsha's
husband, daughters, son in love, stepdad, and Marsha & Michele
...fill them both with Your love & comfort. May Your grace cover all their needs. You are more than sufficient.

LORD, I know that You are totally aware of all of these needs & You are in control. As we lift them united to You, You promise that You will hear & attend to them. Bring more of You into these circumstances so that they will know Your strength, mercy & grace!

Thank You LORD for listening to our spoken needs & any unspoken. You are more than enough! Thank You for the victory You won for us! Thank You for walking us through this journey, holding on to us as You pour Your love on each of these sweet people that need a tangible sign from You! Bless each one!
In Jesus Name, I 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.
