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.

ADORATION PRAYERS and PRAISE

Let us take time at this place to 


ABIDE and ADORE Our Lord


Let us speak Words of love and adoration to Him!

A prayer of ADORATION comes from the heart, expressing our love, awe, respect or reverence to God. It actually means to put one's hands up to their mouth to give a kiss to the one they are worshiping. For SCRIPTURES and more on PRAISE return to our previous posts HERE and here.

There is and will be another post for leaving your prayer petitions (requests or needs of others) so that we may intercede together with you. 


This one is for PRAISE and ADORATION Prayers only please! I can't think of any better way to start our week with Our Lord and King than praising Him, exalting Him, and adoring Him!

HEALING


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvpDisoU9qY performed by Jason Upton


Prayer of Release
I know the one in whom I trust, and I am sure that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until the day of his return. 2 Timothy 1:12 NLT

Heavenly Father, I release to you the burdens that I have been carrying, burdens that You never intended for me to carry. I cast all my cares upon You—all my worries, all my fears. You have told me not be anxious about anything, but rather to bring everything to You in prayer with thankfulness.

Father, calm my restless spirit, quiet my anxious heart, still my troubling thoughts with the assurance that You are in control. I let go of my grip upon the things I have been hanging onto, with opened hands I come to You. I release to Your will all that I am trying to manipulate; I release to Your authority all that I am trying to control; I release to Your timing all that I have been striving to make happen.

I thank You for Your promise to sustain me, preserve me, and guard all that I have entrusted to Your keeping. Protect my heart and mind with Your peace, the peace that passes all understanding. Father, may Your will be done in my life, in Your time, and in Your way.

Scriptures: 
Psalm 55:22 

1 Peter 5:7

Philippians 4:6

Matthew 6:25-34

Isaiah 26:3

Luke 11:2

Thy will, oh Lord, NOT mine, be done... from Nicole at As My World Turns for her Word Filled Wednesday with a beautiful image of Jesus carrying ... YOU ... or whomever...

"Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken"

Matthew 18:20

PRAYING FOR YOURSELF



Running toward the heart of God, so you can walk in your destiny…


From "Drawing Near" Devotional - by Kathleen Dillard from PRAYER CENTRAL
Day-13 
Pray for Myself


What Kind of Trial are You In?


“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To Him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.”
 -1 Peter 5:8-11


Today’s Word:
Precious child remember My word, ‘do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you’. Are you in a painful trial? There are three things to remember during such times. 


The first thing to remember in hardship is that, ‘God causes all things to work together for good to those who love Him.’ Be assured of this, and do not despair. 


The second thing to remember is that some hardship is the doorway to share in Christ’s sufferings, and these sufferings will be worked for your benefit. 


The third thing to remember is that you have an enemy.


Ask Me what the source of your hardship is. And when you are doing well, and making much progress in your Kingdom labors, then you should not be caught unaware when the enemy stands against you. At that very moment, ‘Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you’. Take up My word, and place resistance against the enemy’s efforts. ‘The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full’.


There are times in My Kingdom that require resistance, and I have given you authority for those times. Even as I have said, ‘I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven’. Do not be afraid, for I am with you; use your authority and remember that you belong to Me. You are a child, precious and loved, in your Father’s house.


Scripture:


1 Peter 4:12 “Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you.”


James 4:7 “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”


John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”


Matthew 16:19 “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”


  • You can use FETCH A PRAYER (we have this in our left sidebar all the time): 
  • 1st CHOOSE a topic... click on the arrow where it says choose a topic and a drop down menu will show you the choices... FIND "Myself" which is under "People" or choose other topic ... you can then type in your name or whoever or no name... SELECT male, female or plural (meaning for more than one) and last, click on PRAY NOW and a new window will open with your prayer
Whatever KIND OF TRIAL you are facing, HE IS WAITING!




For other PRAYERS for YOURSELF see these:


  • or you can use PRAY IT SAY IT cards to send someone..

    and of course you can just write YOUR OWN PRAYER but this is only for PRAYERS FOR YOURSELF.

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.
