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.

"Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken"
(Ecclesiastes 4:12)

(Matt 18:20).

This is an interactive blog based on a comment and response system. PLEASE WRITE YOUR PRAYER, PRAYER REQUEST, PRAISE, THANKS in the place that would normally read comments after the most recent post, but here it will read "PRAYERS LIFTED TO THE THRONE of GOD."

Yours or For Others
in the regular comment section that we call
"Prayers lifted to the Throne of God"






[ Let's be a cord of three or more strands for each other and the many in need of prayer...]
I don't know how anyone can visit other's blogs without noticing so many needs and bringing them here to PRAY over them. I ask bloggers to please open your eyes and bring those prayers HERE or at least take a moment when at their blog to pray for them or direct them here in your comment to them. That's what community is about and our blogger community needs to PRAY more one for another... so

Peggy said...

left this prayer at Shortybear's place (no one has seen or heard from her since last Weds. that I know)If you know anything, let us know!

Father God, You know our sweet sister and her Lovebug completely. You know their going out and their coming in, their rising and their needs! We lay these before Your Throne trusting You to care for her and him! We know that You love Denise as we all do. We miss her!
Whatever the situation or circumstance, You are in control. We ask for favor, love, provision,
grace, healing, protection and complete care over them both.
Wrap Your loving arms around Denise! Be with her! Flow by Your Spirit from the top of her head to the bottom of her feet. Send in angels guard them then someone angelic to let us know through a messenger what is happening so we may pray better. In Jesus name we ask this and seek Your will.

Denise said...

Thank you for your faithful prayers sister Peggy, God was faithful to answer them. I love you.

One Heart said...

Hi Peggy,

I posted a brief prayer request on my page today. I haven't been online too much today but thought I'd check before heading off to bed (yeah it's only 9pm). I remembered Lighthouse of Prayer and thought I'd leave a prayer request here as well.

Please keep our son in your prayers. He is 20 years old and, well, please pray as God may lead.

Thank you as always and God bless all of the prayer warriors coming together to glorify His name.

Peggy said...

Heavenly Father,

I know You hear the heart of One Heart as I did when I read her prayer request on her blog. I immediately when to pray for her and then she came here.

We are all weary this week Lord. We are weak, but You are Our Strength,
Our Wisdom, Our Comforter.

I come before You on behalf of her son...though it was easier in the spirit, the tears were not. My heart and mind were unsure how to pray because of the many prayers I have prayed for our adult children.
Though I know You know and You know best their needs, we come humbly before You asking that You move on their lives. Bring them into submission and that they will yield their lives to You. That someone would come along side them and give them Godly wisdom, leading them to You.

That their ears would be open to You! That they would run to You.
That their spirit would be harnessed by You love & Your will for them.

I do not know the situation of One Heart's son but I do know the heart of a mother. I ask that You would put a hedge of protection around him and her heart. Guard their hearts. Open his heart. Open his ears to hear from You. Open his mind and conduct to Your thoughts and Your ways. Draw Him close. Let him know how much you and his parents care for him and have his best interest at heart. Fill him with wisdom and direct his steps.
Cover him and lead him as You keep him from tempation and evil.

Deliver us all from the attacks of the enemy on our hearts, our minds, our families. Keep us focused on the Truth so we will not hear the lies of others. Guard us from all accusations. Bring justice and hearts of forgiveness, mercy & repentance. Hold the tongues until they have been reigned and bridled by You. Keep us from speaking words that pierce the heart. I ask this not just for One Heart, but all of the hearts enduring and suffering this week. The attacks have been heavy everywhere in all ways: natural disasters, financial, emotional, physical, spiritual, even in the internet and blogs.
There is a spirit of heaviness and we break it now in the Name of Jesus! We release a spirit of joy and gladness! A spirit of praise!
Our hearts filled with gratitude and Your love. Lift all anxiety and stress and bring us the peace of Jesus! Whom shall we fear? No one as we stand in Your peace & calm our spirit. Bring us into Your complete rest and trust in You!
You are in control! We submit to You because You are for us. Each one of us... fear is cast out, worry must go, lies have no power or cannot touch our hearts and minds. We are yours. Our children are Yours. We commit our households to You! We will be still and lay ALL down to You. We bow to You!
We ask You to have Your way in each of us and every situation, according to Your will we ask, seek & come to You in Jesus Name!

We love You forever & ever! We thank You and consider all of this done, giving thanks as we confidently come to You... thank You. thank You so much, praise be to You Our Lord God Almighty!!!

One Heart said...

Peggy, Amen!! I echo your words..."we consider all of this done."

One Heart said...

Thank you my sister. Continued blessings to you and this place.

Denise said...

Dear heavenly Father, I seek You today, and everyday. Please hear my voice as I cry out for the needs of so many that are hurting in various ways, and facing trials of every kind. Touch their lives as only You can do. You, and only You, know their needs fully. Where there is sadness, replace it with joy. Where there are tears falling, replace them with much laughter. Where there is pain, send healing. Where there is need of employment, send jobs. I ask these things in Your precious name Lord Jesus. I know You hear my pleas, and will answer , in Your way, and in Your time, which is always best. I praise You Lord Jesus for all You do in my live, and in other's lives. You are amazingly beautiful. Just one touch from You is all that is needed to bring hope to a hurting heart. I praise You for Who You are, and all You do . I love You with everything I am, today, tomorrow, and forever.

Tea with Tiffany said...

Lord God, we are your people, please hear our prayers. We praise YOU the King of kings and LORD of lords. You are worthy of all of our affection and attention. We are nothing without you. With You, we are complete and satisfied. Thank You for the power of prayer. Thank You for God's people gathering together to pray and praise YOUR name. Jesus. Jesus. Jesus. We love You.

Peggy said...

Thank You Lord for Tiffany! Thank You for her prayer and her efforts to rise up others to join together in prayer!
Bless her Lord and hear her prayer, both this one and the one at Tea with Tiffany! Bless her loved ones! Bless her children as the new school year starts.

We join Tiffany and praise You! You alone are so worthy! We are nothing without You! But through You, we can do all things! We thank You and we praise You every day and for every prayer. We stand together for the many in need and the petitions given. Thank You Lord!....

Karen said...

Heavenly Father...You are great...and You are mighty...You alone know about each and every request...even the ones unwritten or unspoken...and You alone have the answers...I pray that You touch my sisters that are crying out for healings of all kinds tonight...all power is Yours...and we pray that Your will shall be done...

Father God, I also request a special touch of love and comfort to my sister Lizzie...she only had her husband for 8 years...and misses him so...please be with the family tomorrow as he is laid to rest...pour your grace onto Lizzie and the family as they celebrate Michael's home-going...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.
