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.

LOVE LETTER for AMERICA

How to Pray for America

God's Love Letter for America
by Mike Spradlin

The Bible is full of love letters from God – letters we especially need when we are in times of tribulation. From the very first verse in Isaiah 40, we discover this love: “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.” This word comfort is not just a sense of being at ease, but to show us God’s great character of love towards His people.

Moving to verse 2 we discover the phrase, “speak ye comfortably [a message of love] to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished; that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the Lord’s hand double for all her sins.”  

TO READ the important part and the rest of this letter, please go to IF MY PEOPLE PRAY and to learn more about 40 Days of Prayer and we shared this here. Here are many of the other wonderful resources:

Hopelessness

Pray: That people will find their hope in Jesus, and that, when hard times fall, they can know there is a God who loves them.

"Remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ." (Ephesians 2:12-13)

Dear heavenly Father, I pray that people will realize that they do not need to feel hopeless, You are our hope. Open their eyes to that fact Father. Our hope is built upon You, and Your righteousness. We love You Father. Amen.

Strongholds

Pray: That spiritual strongholds which keep Americans from faith will be broken down, and that God would heal the sins of the past which stand in the way of His blessings.

"For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds."
(2 Corinthians 10:4)

Father from whom all peoples derive their hope, use your Spirit to rouse within me a passion to share your grace with others. Nudge me out of my safety zone and call me into your empowering and sacrificial grace so that I can help others come to know you. In the saving name of Jesus I pray.

(2 Timothy 2:2)

Government

Pray: That God will have mercy on the political leaders of America, and turn their hearts to Him, and that God's purposes will be fulfilled through the decisions and actions of the government.

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.
