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

"For where two or three come together in my name,
there am I with them."
Matthew 18:20

This is meant to be an interactive blog based on a comment and response systemPLEASE 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."

We'd love to see your Prayer requests (Petitions), or Praises to God in what normally would be the comment area, where others will be supporting you through their prayers, written as a response to your petition there. We are asking you all to pray whenever you read a need of someone, please respond here with a prayer. You need not be a team member to leave a prayer for someone or bring a prayer need here.  

WE REALLY NEED SOME PRAYER PEOPLE INTERACTING HERE,that is the PURPOSE of THE LIGHTHOUSE of PRAYER to join together in PRAYER for ONE ANOTHER, not one praying for everyone else... it also means bringing PRAYER REQUESTS HERE PLEASE... our strands are just hanging on in this chord of two or three... we NEED YOU! Please don't be afraid to leave a prayer.

"God listens to prayers, answers prayers, and moves in response to prayers. 

Jesus taught, “…I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you” (Matt.17:20)" ~ PPT

Whatever your "mountain" is, let's lift it to the Throne and in the authority of Jesus command it to "GO" in Jesus' Name... He is MORE than ENOUGH... we need to intervene for OTHERS so let's gather them up and PRAY!!! Just add them to our list.
Numbers 6:24-26 (29 kb)
There is also a separate post from this for Prayers for Our Nation. I will try to keep it up to date from two websites: "If My People Pray" and "Pray the Vote". Remember that this is a PRAYER site not a political site.

USING LINKY TOOLS AGAIN: If you see any post requesting prayer, copy their URL and link it here, so that we may cover their prayer need & lift them to the throne of God and so others may visit & pray also! THANK YOU!

Heavenly Father,

Bless Denise and her ever faithful heart to come & pray for so many in need. Denise just does not say she'll pray, she really does PRAY! Pour back into my sweet sis as she prays for so many! I'm sure others wrote praying for you, but few come in a tangible way and write a prayer to lift up these needs to Your throne!

Father, though I may not be aware of the needs, I know that You do!
I lift up each person on this list & throughout blog land, the spoken and unspoken needs of Susanna & her family, Bonnie's loved ones in their sorrow & grief, Melanie as she grieves, Susan, Beth... so many that need You, Comforter, Counselor, Provider and Lifter of our heads!

Dear Lord, we love You so much and so we know that You also love these that are hurting! Draw near and help each one to know You are there for them, touch them in a REAL way in Jesus' name, I pray...

Dear Father in Heaven, You know how hard it is to see your children and families hurting when they do not communicate with you and one another, when they are self-centered, out of your will, and following the wrong paths. Maybe they get too busy to nourish the really important relationships in their lives. I pray right now for my own family, for all of the families around the world, for husbands and wives who have grown apart or are on the verge of divorce, for children who are rebellious and angry, for parents who are too busy and irritated, for those who are bitter or hurt. God please reach down and tug on their hearts, speak to their minds, and show them the way. I pray that the root of their problems will be exposed and that through the Holy Spirit, through Your Word, through a caring friend or a concerned Christian, or whatever way you know is best, that you will turn around those lives that are headed the wrong direction and put them back together. I pray that these families will become healthy, happy, God-honoring, communicating and loving families. And God, for the families that are doing well, I pray that you would protect them from the evil one; surround them with guardian angels; and keep that family under your wings of love and guidance. Thank you, in Jesus' name, amen.

Praying for: the jobless in my community

Take Courage

Scripture: The following night the Lord stood near Paul and said, “Take courage”! -Acts 23:11

Prayer: Jesus, You are the Lord almighty. There is no darkness that is dark to You, and no difficulty that is beyond Your reach. You are present in every moment of our lives and nothing escapes Your notice.

I lift up the jobless in my community to You today Lord, and ask You to surround them with Your peace. There are anxious thoughts lurking about and they need Your help. Just as You brought comfort to Paul, I ask, Lord that You would whisper to the jobless in my community, “Take courage! Take courage! I am with you, Take courage!”

Let Your voice drown out the fearful thoughts that reach out from the dark. Give them the grace Lord to draw near to You today, and enter into Your presence where fear and anxiety disappear and hope and strength abound.

Please pray with me for the family of Gina Carlin. I got a message from Vicki, my dear friend, that Gina passed away. I hurriedly hopped on to Gina's FB page and found this...
"With a broken heart I post the following to Gina Carlins' friends on Facebook: Gina Carlin passed away on Tuesday, September 21st. She was a loving wife and mother, a treasured daughter, beloved sister and friend. From our hearts to God's arms. Feel free to post your thoughts for the family to read and thank you for the... precious words already received from those of you that knew her and loved her as we did."

Dear heavenly Father, my heart is hurting very badly for the family of this precious child, Rulaine. She was diagnosed with brain cancer, and has now passed away.

They have no insurance, and cannot afford to pay for her funeral. Father, please send help to this family quickly, so they can have a funeral service for this beautiful little girl. Prick peoples hearts, so they will come forward to help this family in their time of need, let compassion be shown to them. Hear my prayer, and answer quickly, I plead Father. I love You. Amen

Denise said...

Dear heavenly Father, I really need Your help right now, this very hour. I just received a phone call from my eye doctor, I actually talked to the doctor. He received the result from one of my lab results, my glucose level. That is what measures my blood sugar level. A normal blood sugar level before you eat should be 90-130, after you eat, it should be no higher than 180. The eye doctor said my blood sugar was 700 Father. This high level can cause my brain to begin to shut down, and can cause much damage to my body, even coma or death. I am asking You to please help my blood sugar level to come down quickly Father to a normal level. I believe in Your healing powers Father, I believe. Thanking You ahead of time, for what I know You can, and will do. I love You Father. Amen

Father, in the Name of Jesus, I confess Your Word concerning healing. As I do this, I believe and say Your Word shall not return to You void, but will accomplish what it says it will. Therefore, I believe in the name of Jesus that Denise is receiving healing, according 1 Peter 2:24. It is written in Your word that Jesus Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses. Therefore, with great boldness and confidence I say on the authority of that written Word, that Denise is redeemed from the curse of sickness, and she refuses to tolerate its symptoms.
Satan, I speak to you in the Name of Jesus and say your principalities, powers, your spirits who rule the present darkness, and your spiritual wickedness in heavenly places are bound from operating against Denise in any way. She is the property of Almighty God, and she gives you no place in her. She dwells in the secret place of the Most High God. She abides, remains stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty, whose power no foe can withstand.
Father, we revere and worship You, we have the assurance of Your Word that the angel of the Lord encamps around Denise and delivers her from every evil work. No evil shall befall her, no plague or calamity shall come near her dwelling. Your Word abides in her and delivers to her perfect sound mind and wholeness in body and spirit from the deepest parts of her nature in her immortal spirit even to the joints and marrow of her bones. That Word is medication and life to her flesh for the law of the Spirit of life operates in her and makes her free from the law of sin and death.
Denise has the whole armor of God, and the shield of faith protects her from all the fiery darts of the wicked. Jesus is her High Priest. Denise stands immovable and fixed in full assurance that she has health and healing now in the name of Jesus. amen amen amen

Cathy said...

Lord, God, we pray a hedge of protection around Denise and plead the blood of Jesus over her. Touch her and make her whole we pray, in the name of Jesus.
Please answer all those other prayer needs too, Father. We know you will take care of your own. Thank you for hearing and answering our prayers, in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen

It's Time to 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.
