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.

POWER IN PRAYER

The Power of a Praying® Woman Prayer and Study Guide (Power of Praying)

"The Power of A Praying Woman"


I ordered and received this, in a flash, through Kindle for PC, for a great reduced price, including the study guide. Sure, there are many others, I probably need like "The Power of the Praying Wife" but I decided, as a woman, this was too good of an offer to pass up, even though she has some more recent books that are just as great ... like

by Stormie Omartian(Paperback - July 1, 2009)

(Paperback - Jan. 1, 2009)

(Paperback - Aug. 1, 2008)
Beth has this one (maybe we can get her to share some more, too over HERE)

Stormie's list is endless and never a disappointment!

I even have this one in SPANISH because I couldn't wait to get home to buy it in English. This is an unpaid, no profit to anyone, personal recommendation (not even the new deal that Amazon has for linking up books via Blogger)

Since a STUDY GUIDE is included, don't be surprised to find me sharing MORE either here or on my regular blog or another team blog in the near future... as God leads and permits.


DO YOU NEED MORE POWER in YOUR PRAYER LIFE?

PRAYER FOR OUR NATION – 2009

by

Stormie Omartian

Lord, we ask that you would pour out your Spirit upon our nation. Shine your light into the dark places of our land and expose the works of evil. We, Your people, have heavy hearts over what we see happening in our country and so we unite in prayer to confess the sins of our nation and to seek Your forgiveness. We specifically ask Your forgiveness for the violence, murder, deception, robbery, corruption, idol worship, and all other forms of godless behavior that have been allowed to flourish here. Forgive us and lead us in Your way. Teach us to follow You without compromise. Help us to pray more than criticize. Soften the hearts of people who have set themselves against You. Open their eyes to see Your truth. Open their ears to hear Your voice. How grateful we are that You are a God of mercy and You hear our prayers when we call to You. We ask for Your mercy upon us now.


Where greed and ignorance have been our downfall, bring us as a nation back into alignment with your righteous principles. We pray especially that You will protect our children – both living and unborn – so that they will be preserved physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually for your purpose and glory. Put a stop to all violence against children in any form. Expose anyone who would do evil against a child before it happens. Bring the children of our land who have strayed from your ways back to You.


We ask that You would raise up Holy Spirit-led leaders in our state and national governments. Remove those who are corrupt or do not follow Your ways. Guide our President and his advisors and all of our Congressmen and Senators to always do the right thing. Give them godly wisdom to make correct decisions. Replace the ungodly with those who serve You. Raise up righteous judges who will be chosen to uphold the law according to Your Word. Protect us from our enemies, keep our economy from failing, and bring us back to be the nation we were meant to be.


We lift up praise to You and thank You that because You are our Lord, we are never without hope. Thank you that because You work powerfully through our prayers, we can see things turn around. Help us to pray as often and as fervently as we should. Enable us to pray according to Your will so that we can continue to enjoy Your hand of blessing upon our land.


In Jesus’ name we pray.

When I first started as an intercessor and than prayer warrior, Kay Arthur's book on PRAYER was one of my first... "Lord, Teach Me to Pray" and since then she has expanded and updated and this link is to her most current ...in 28 days (4 wk. study) and then her other book, "Lord, Is it Warfare?" Whatever Kay teaches, she does with depth as well as clarity and simplicity from God's Word and her own personal experiences. I was blessed greatly by reading her books and now by watching/listening to her teach.

Have you been in a desert? or
is your prayer life and Bible reading getting dry? or
are you weary?

You need a filling of His Holy Spirit

PSALM 63

1 O God, You are my God,

earnestly I seek you;

my soul thirsts for you,

my body longs for you,

in a dry and weary land

where there is no water.

Psalm 63:1 (21 kb)

2 I have seen You in the sanctuary

and beheld Your power and Your glory.

3 Because your love is better than life,

my lips will glorify you.

4 I will praise You as long as I live,

and in Your name I will lift up my hands.

5 My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods;

with singing lips my mouth will praise You.

6 On my bed I remember You;

I think of You through the watches of the night.

7 Because You are my help,

I sing in the shadow of Your wings.

8 My soul clings to You;

Your right hand upholds me.

9 They who seek my life will be destroyed;

they will go down to the depths of the earth.

10 They will be given over to the sword

and become food for jackals.

11 But the king will rejoice in God;

all who swear by God's name will praise Him,

while the mouths of liars will be silenced.

(NIV)

Hungering and Thirsting for God: Longing for God
by Mike Cope

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, the Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still.
— A. W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God (Camp Hill, PA: Christian Publications, Inc., 1982).

(Part of a series from Heartlight.org)

"I believe that we will thirst and long — because in longing we love — in love we live — and in living we celebrate our Creator."

Hungering & Thirsting
for MORE


This song and this hungering comes out of my time of prayer with GDOP & the Holy Spirit this past weekend & readings in my time away, but the article by David Wilkerson shared HERE (ANSWERS & MY PRAYERS...) inspired me to share this today along with the above... my heart hungers and thirst and longs for God, the filling of His Holy Spirit and the power of the Spirit flowing in me and through me to others. May HE meet You and flow through you today and fill you up overflowingly!!!



ANSWERS & MY PRAYERS...

JUST HAD TO SHARE THIS:

WILL MY PRAYERS EVER BE ANSWERED?

I believe in Holy Ghost timing. In God’s own time, all our prayers will be answered—one way or another—but the trouble is, we are afraid to submit our prayers to Holy Ghost scrutiny. Some of our prayers need to be purged because often our faith is misspent on requests that are not mature. We do not know how to pray, “Thy will be done.” We don’t want his will as much as those things permitted by his will.

Abraham exercised his faith to keep reminding himself he was a stranger on this earth. His blessing pact produced only a tent to dwell in, because he put all his faith in that city whose builder and maker is God.

Were some of these faith warriors not living in faith? Did God refuse to answer some of their prayers? After all, not all of them were delivered and not all lived to see answers to their payers. Not all were spared pain, suffering and even death. Some were tortured; others were torn asunder, wandering about destitute, afflicted, and tormented (Hebrews 11:36-38).

Some who had a reputation for having great faith “received not the promise” (Hebrews 11:39). Those who did “obtain promises” used their faith to work righteousness, to gain strength in times of weakness, and to put the enemy to flight.

Don’t worry about whether God is saying “Yes” or “No” to your request. Don’t be downcast when the answer is not in sight and, please, quit concentrating on faith formulas and methods. Just commit every prayer to Jesus and go about your business with confidence. He will not be one moment early or late in answering, and if the answer you seek is not forthcoming, say to your heart, “He is all I need. If I need more, he will not withhold it. He will answer in his time and in his way. And if he does not fulfill my request, he must have a perfect reason for not doing so. No matter what happens, I will always have faith in his faithfulness.”

God forgive us if we are more concerned about getting prayers answered than in learning total submission to Christ himself. We do not learn obedience by the things we obtain but by the things we suffer. Are you willing to learn by suffering a little longer with what appears to be an unanswered prayer? Will you rest in his love while patiently waiting for the promise?

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.
