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.

UPCOMING NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER

JUST WANTING TO SHARE an URGENT EMAIL I RECEIVED

Presidential Prayer Team - Prayer Alert


A federal judge in Wisconsin yesterday found the National Day of Prayer to be unconstitutional, saying it violates the First Amendment prohibition laws respecting an establishment of religion.

The decision was rendered in a case brought some years ago against the Bush (and subsequently Obama) administration by the 15,000-member Freedom From Religion Foundation.

The court's action will not impact the activities planned around this year's May 6th National Day of Prayer activities in Washington, D.C. on the steps of the Capitol, on the Mall by the Washington Monument, at the ellipse near the Jefferson Memorial, and in many cities around the country.

The Presidential Prayer Team will also be sending information regarding the rumors that President Obama has cancelled the National Day of Prayer. The fact is - last year President Obama cancelled only the White House's involvement in the National Day of Prayer. Be watching for that email shortly.

WHAT CAN YOU DO NOW?

  • Share this information by forwarding this email to your friends who will pray.

  • Sign up for and share the "Vantage Point" devotionals with your friends who pray ... they are targeting the readiness for the National Day of Prayer, and include names of specific individuals on the Task Force to hold before the Lord during this time. Sign up here - its free!

  • Prepare your own heart in readiness for what will come next.

  • Pray for The Presidential Prayer Team. As the largest intercessory prayer group in the United States, we must address our eroding rights to openly pray in America. Pray specifically for wisdom and our understanding of God's timing as we formalize a plan to involve our entire membership.

Now is not the time to sit back and watch. Now is the time to pray.

Now is the time to gather others to pray with you.

STOP THE RUMORS - SHARE THE FACTS - BE IN PRAYER

********************************************************************

GOD HELP OUR COUNTRY; IT IS TIME FOR EACH OF US TO JOIN AND PRAY IN ONE ACCORD!!!

REMEMBER MAY 6th NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER!

May we humble ourselves as a nation and pray no matter what the courts say.

May we all fall upon our faces, and cry out to our Father to save us, and our families and friends from those who try to take our rights away. Never cease to pray, He hears, and will answer.,

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.
