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.

IMPORTANT TO PRAY TODAY FOR OUR NATION

Today, thousands of Muslims are gathering in our nation's capital to lift up the name of their god. As a believer in Christ, I would like to invite you to pray this prayer with me today, to lift up our God over our nation. God Bless America!



A Friday Prayer for our Nation

Lord, on a day when others gather to lift up their god before our nation, we lift You up as the one true God, creator of all things, who reigns and rules forever and ever and there is no end to Your kingdom. We exalt You today Lord as the author of life, and redeemer of our souls. You are holy and just, and there is no one else like You. Your name is worthy to be praised forever and ever, and at the sound of Your name all heaven bows down to worship.

On a day when others call on their god, we call on You Lord, the One God who hears and answers, the One who judges all nations, and extends mercy to all who call upon Him. The One who stands unchallenged in the heavens, who knows all the secrets of the universe, and the smallest thought in our heart. To the One who is high and lifted up above every other name that can ever be named, we call on You Lord today.

And As those who have been redeemed by the death and resurrection of Jesus, we ask that You would forgive us for not holding You in the place of honor that You deserve in our lives, our families, and our nation. Forgive us Lord for every time we have stepped back from standing up for You, every time we have yielded to popular opinion and denied that still small voice through which You guide us. Forgive us Lord for not being the moral compass that those around us so desperately need. Forgive us Lord for not keeping this nation, that You have so richly blessed, as One Nation Under You. We are deeply sorry.

Lord, You have promised that You would give grace to the humble. As I humble myself before You now I ask for the grace I need to be different. To step out of the crowd and stand unafraid for Your name's sake. To reject the empty values pushed upon me by the media, and live out the divine destiny You have for me. Lord help me to be the One Person Under God that You have called me to be.

I also ask Lord that You would extend Your septer of mercy over our nation, forgive us Lord for the many wrongs we have done, for corruption and greed, immorality and squandering Your blesses. We need a transformation Lord, and I'm asking that You would pour down upon our nation mercy and forgiveness. Break down the principalities and powers that stand against Your desires for our nation. We need Your help Lord, and there is no other God like You who rides across the heavens to come to our aid. Ride Lord, Ride, for we need You like never before. We need You in our families, our businesses, our churches, our government. We need You Lord, and nothing else will do.

Let the sound of Your redeeming love and power blow across our land. Call back to life, those things we have let die, and restore to us Lord that which we have lost. Bless our nation once again Lord that we might be a place where Your name is lifted up higher than any other name. Where Your blessings flow to us, and through us, and Your Good News goes forth to all people. In Jesus name, Amen.

"Salvation is found in no-one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved." -Acts 4:12 (His name is Jesus)

Pray for Andrew

Please see updates in Prayer Comments here by DENISE and
with BELLA ~ MELLA from their own faith filled blog:
...We have received a very bad report. But God.
HE is the I AM.
He is able, mighty, awesome, amazing, wonderful, beautiful, holy, creator, sustainer, redeemer, healer, Father and
Designer of Brains.

PLEASE continue to intercede in faith filled prayer for a miracle for
Andrew. ~ Aug. 31, 2009
...The report is he has an inoperable stage 4 brain tumor. It is in the white matter of his brain which is why it is inoperable. The oncologist does not offer much hope. (I detest even writing that but want you to know what we are dealing with.)... Sept. 4, 2009
BUT WE ARE GOING WITH GOD ON THIS. WE BELIEVE HIS REPORT.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR ANDREW and his family. To have your faith increased just visit BELLA MELLA and allow Melanie to speak faith and encouragement in the midst of this heavy battle, the LORD speaks blessings to her and she rejoices in her spirit. She will bless you when you go there to pray about Andrew as she offers an update, you will leave more blessed. Make a stop there regularly. As the prayers go up, the blessings come down, and we are standing with her in FAITH!
**************
Update from 9-24-09 "Seeking the Kingdom First"
"Specific prayer: Pray that test results are good ones. Pray that when Andrew is moved, the roommate situation will not be a source of stress. He is being moved today. We have no control over that. Picu is quiet and the nurses are great here. But we will not be allowed to stay here.
Andrew has had a headache today. He had Tylenol, then Percoset and finally morphine. Pray that the headache is gone when he wakes and does not return.We were told this morning to expect to spend about 2 weeks in the hospital.

Finally, pray for my husband, myself, our other children and my parents. This, obviously, affects the entire family.
We need your prayers to strengthen us in this battle for our son's life and health.
I need YOU, YOUR prayer, YOUR faith." ~ Melanie & family

Andrew went home to be with the lORD on December 15th, 2009. Keep his family in prayer.

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.
