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.

Genesis 1:26-2:7

How grateful I am to be closely connected to You in every way."

PSALM 36
5 Your unfailing love to me , O Lord, is as vast as the heavens;
your faithfulness to me reaches beyond the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
your justice like the ocean depths.
You care for me,my family, people and animals alike, O Lord.
How precious is your unfailing love, O God!
All humanity finds shelter
in the shadow of your wings.
You feed us from the abundance of your own house,
letting us drink from your river of delights.
For you are the fountain of life,
the light by which we see. Pour out your unfailing love on us we love you;
give justice to all of us with honest hearts.

Yes Lord i am in awe of your unfailing love
Your righteousness and Your justice.
You keep always the promises you give to us as your children.
You give me the word not to worry that you will take care of us and provide
each and everyday all our needs and more than we ask......
Thank You Lord for doing that each and everyday on our stay with my in-laws in Nigeria and that You will keep on doing it each and every day.
I praise You Lord Jesus for your Power Sthrengt and Protection and Guidance and all You want to be for me and to all who worship you in spirit and in truth.

You are who You are The beginning and the end " Alpha and Omega'
Amen

Psalm 41:3

Dear heavenly Father, thank You for being there to always strengthen me when I am ill.You sustain me on my sickbed. You restore my health back to me, and refresh my weary soul. I will forever praise Your holy name. I love You Father. Amen

Dear heavenly Father, be with my precious sister Peggy. Give her much strength to continue her journey through this world. Calm the storms that are raging in her life at this moment, give her sweet refuge from the storms. Let her rise on eagles wings, and fly freely from the storms, back into the Sonshine. I love You Father. Amen

Today's Prayer from Ephesians Four Ministry TGIF (just had to share for all of you this is my prayer)

For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. ~ Psalm 91:11-12.

God, this is one of my favorite comforts from Your Word. I pray and trust that You will command Your angels concerning me, my family, my friends, my pastors and their families, that through Your power and Your command guardian angels will be round about to protect us and lift us up so that we will not strike our feet against stones. Please protect us from all harm and evil. Help us remain pure and devoted to You. And for those I know and love who are fighting addictions of various types, I pray that You would give them strength and power to overcome and that guardian angels will protect them and keep them from stumbling. In the name of Jesus I pray and give You thanks, amen.

Judges 10:15-16

Dear God,

I don't want anything to separate me from You. Nothing is worth that.

I want to confess to You anything I have done wrong, and anything not pleasing in Your eyes.

Wherever I have worshiped "other gods" or harbored what You would consider an idol in my life, reveal it to me and I will confess it, repent of it, and get rid of it.

I want to serve only You.

Denise said...

Dear heavenly Father, let all of Your creation daily give You the praise that You deserve. I love You, and my heart sings praise to You. Please hear my song. Amen

Isaiah 30:21--Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it."

My Father,

I come to You this morning with praise and worship!! My heart is gladdened that You know me, see me, have searched my heart and mind.

I confess to you the times when I have not listened for Your voice and have turned to ways that have not pleased You. Sometimes this is a result of a choice of my own--made without consulting You. Somtimes this is because of poor choices of others that effect me and I react poorly.

Help me to always listen for Your voice saying to me, "This is the way; walk in it." You know me so well--better than anyone here on earth. You know my struggles and my downfalls.

Hedge me in, Lord!! Protect me from the evil one and all his wily plans for me. Help me to be strong in You and not listen to his voice, but to Your's alone.

I ask this in Your Son's Name, Jesus Christ, my Savior....

Amen

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.(Philippians 4:6-7)(NLT)*.

Dear God,

You have instructed me to not be anxious, worrisome, overly concerned for any thing...but instead to bring everything to you in prayer and thanksgiving. If I do this, you have promised me that your peace, which passes all understanding, shall keep my heart and mind through Christ Jesus.*

I come to you now for myself and on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ, and for those who suffer so much due to anxiety and depression.

I pray that you will fill us with your peace; that you will touch our minds and remind us that we do not need to worry. You are our God and maker. You will handle it for us. Worrying does no good. May we lean into you, talk with you, spend time in your Word and before the throne of grace. May we fellowship with other Christians, those who will encourage us, even more so as the day approaches. Right now, this day, we give you our concerns and ask that you will work out all to our good and your glory.

Thank you, Father, for loving us and carrying our burdens.

Thank you, Father, for providing our needs. Thank you, Father, for Jesus Christ our Savior and the hope He has given. For it is in His name I pray, amen.

Ephesians Four Ministry, TGIF for today

Isaiah 55:10-12

As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Isaiah 55:10-12 NIV

DAILY MANNA for today...anyone want to turn this one into a prayer for me and my S.U.M.?

Lord, Today I will go out in JOY and be led forth in peace! I will burst into song before You with PRAISE along with Denise and all of Your Creation!

It is the first part of this word from Isaiah that I need Your help. Guard my mouth. Guard my words! Guard my heart! Guard my mind!
Plant good seed around me, Beth, Denise and others who come here, as You keep us watered in Your Living Word and weed out the evil and harmful things that want to choke Your life out of us. May we flourish! May Your Word be our words because those words do not return empty. That is why we come to You praying back the Word we read in Your Bible. Your Word is good and truth! Your Word gives life! You gave us Your life and we are eternally grateful!!!

May the words proceed out of my mouth accomplish what You desire
and achieve the purpose for which
You destined...in Jesus

Denise said...

Dear heavenly Father, thank You for another day in which I can love You and praise You. You are my heart's true desire, all I will ever need. I love You Father. Amen

Ephesians 1:4
According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy
and without blame before him in love. - Ephesians 1:4

Lord, I am so glad that You knew me and called me even before I was conceived in my mother's womb. According to Your Word, I am no mistake; therefore, I ask You to help me start looking at my life with respect, esteem, and honor. You called me, and You have an awesome plan for my life. I ask You to help me uncover that plan so I can get started on the road of
obedience toward the fulfillment of what You brought me into this world to do!

I pray this in Jesus' name!

Thank You Father for bringing me here today so I can just sit and pour out my heart to You. You know I need to do this right now.

Oh Lord, how my adversaries have increased. Many are rising up against me, many are saying of my soul there is no deliverance in You. But You are a shield around me Oh Lord, my glory and the One that lifts my head. To You oh Lord I cry and You answer me from Your Holy mountain.I lie down and sleep, I awake for the Lord sustains me. I will not be fearful of ten thousands of people that set themselves against me around about. Arise oh Lord, save me oh my God .For Thou has smitten all my enemies on the cheek, Thou has smashed the teeth of the wicked. Salvation comes from the Lord. Thy blessings be upon Thy people. Psalm 3.

Father God, You have called my family the head and not the tail. A crown of splendor in Your right hand and the apple of Your eye. You have said that we are more than conqueror's in Christ. No matter if a thousand are at are side, ten thousand at our right hand, they will not come near us for we have made the Most High our God. Only with our eyes will we see the destruction of the wicked. I claim this Father for it is truth. Your truth has set us free. Even though at this very moment my family faces so many foes that have come against us, particularly over Asher, Father God I praise You for what was intended to harm him and our family You have intended for good, for the saving of many lives. Father, come,,,show forth Your power and glory. Defend my son, protect Randy and I from the onslaught that has come against us. I plead the blood of Jesus Christ upon my family and against all the powers of the enemy. I draw the blood line. In the Name of Jesus Christ I apply the keeping power of the blood of Jesus upon our family and our surroundings. amen amen amen

A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. Psalm 91:7 (NIV)

Thank You Heavenly Father for Angela being able to come here and pour out her heart and make a stand. Amen, amen, amen!!! to her prayer.

We declare along with her the truths of Psalm 91. Angela dwells in the shelter of the Most High and Angela and her household will rest in the shadow of the Almighty! You are her refuge & her fortress! Angela trusts in You!

Save her from the fowler's snare and the deadly pestilence. Cover Angela with Your wings and under Your wings, she will find refuge.

Your faithfulness is her shield and rampart.Angela will not fear the terror of the night nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.

A thousand may fall at her side, ten thousand at Angela's right hand, but it WILL NOT come near Angela or her family.

We command Your angels to guard Angela & Randy and her son, & their whole family in all their ways. Lift them up. Trample the enemy.
Rescue them. Protect them...and we will give You all the glory, honor, praise & thanks, acknowledging the Name of Jesus and taking His authority over all of this family.
We call upon You, You answer us in our time of need, in trouble... deliver us as we honor You. And with long life satisfy us and show us our salvation!

You are the King of kings and we bow to You as You surround them & lift them up! Praise the Name of Jesus!!! Thank You most Holy LORD!

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.
