A Blessed & Happy New Year

... let's start the year right in prayer for one another ...


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 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."

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.  

The Linky asks for a blog link (you need not fill that in if you don't have a blog or the person that you are requesting prayers for does not). The intention of this is so the people will go "visit" the person to encourage them or find out more about the situation. Thank you for sharing people that you find need prayer.

You may add REQUESTS on Linky (if there is one working) or in the comments if not... but remember NO COMMENTS ONLY PRAYERS please

Dear heavenly Father, I come to You raising my precious sister Peggy up to Your throne for healing of her eye. Lay Your healing hands upon her Father, please give her a special touch as only You can. You are her true Physician, and her miracle worker. She loves You, and believes in You, with all of her heart. Honor her faith, by healing her Father. We love You so very much. Amen

Peggy said...

Thank You Lord for Denise's prayer for me both for my lower back and my eye! I thank You for each healing that I see and those I do not see yet or understand but You do! Each one of these healings builds my faith and increases my desire to pray in faith for healing of others! You are the same, yesterday, today and forever... so just as Jesus healed when He walked this earth, I believe we have that authority in Jesus Name to bring glory to Him. It starts in little things and increases into BIG ones.

You are my Healer! You are the Great Physician that I depend on so far away from my own doctor! This always makes me so thankful for my own physician back home in MN and I ask You to bless Him each day and draw Him to You! Though I do not trust many medical personnel here in Mexico for me, I do trust You!
Thank You for hearing my prayers and Denise's that You bring healing. I praise You that my back is much better. I know You as my Healer! I give You these little growths on my eyes or wherever they pop up now and ask You to remove them or keep them from being harmful, painful or cause me
problems with vision or anything!

Thank You for all You do in Jesus Name!

So with this same faith, I stand with my sister Denise and ask for continual healing in her and her husband. You are God of miraculous healing and we praise You for each victory. We ask that You reverse the curse of any bad report and turn each one around for Your glory! You see Denise and her prayer warrior heart and prayers for many! You have seen her faithfulness and beautiful, precious attitude and words! Touch her Lord, with Your balm of Gilead & the strength to walk in the victory of Your miraculous healing!
Denise gives You glory, honor & praise in everything. Honor her faith and her prayers. Hear her every day as she turns to You! Be with Denise! Guide her with Your wisdom! Give this wisdom to all her treat her medically. Continue to do GREAT things and we will continue to give You praise through it all.
We stand together for so many in need and we love You so very much!
We give You thanks & praise!!!
Thank You!!! Thank You for each person who comes and lays their heart before You... spoken & unspoken prayers be done according to Your will... that we may know & do on earth as it is in heaven!

Peggy said...

Heavenly Father, Be with our dear sister Karen and the entire family!
Be their Comforter! Be their strength! Surround them with Your everlasting, unfailing love & strength for their grief! You know every detail and so we ask You to cover them with Your wings and lift them up during this sudden tragic loss! Help them encourage one another and remember the good! Walk through their time of mourning with them as we lift them to You! You are the resurrection and the life, and we believe that even though one may die we will join them once again and that they live eternally with You!

We send Karen & this precious family our love, our embrace of them so tenderly in their sorrow, reminding them of our hope in Christ Jesus, His grace and eternal encouragement of their hearts with His strength! Wrap Your loving arms around each one and let them know You are there and they can cast their cares on You!

Peggy said...

Praising You Lord as I watch each of the miners come to the surface! This is indeed a wonderful MIRACLE to see!

I exalt You O Lord! How marvelous is Your Grace! This is glorious to watch the JOY and LOVE of their families rejoicing in seeing them alive once again!

One miner even fell to his knees the moment he came out! We give You all the glory, honor and praise so far for 22 out of the 33! We expect that You are completing a great work here! Be with each one as they recover from this! Draw them closer to You! May they know that You are their Deliverer, their Rescuer and
the One to whom they must thank for this marvelous blessing. You are the Power and You are their Restorer! Thank You so much!

With all the bad news Lord, this was so great to witness! I had tears of JOY and I was not even there or knew them. Yet You know each one. May they bow to You as King of kings & give You all their thanks and praise for sustaining their lives and their survival from the darkness of the mine to the Light of Your Son. May they each come to know You through this as their personal Savior and Lord. Each one (33) one for every year of Jesus' life... be blessed in Jesus Name...

Thank You, thank You, thank You
forever and ever.

I come to You also to lift up Andrea, her family and as she asked the pastor son of their dear aunt, who will be performing her service this Weds.

Send Your Comforter and be with each one as they celebrate her life and her homecoming but also mourn their loss! Encourage them to press on in their own race as Andrea's husband's aunt has done.
We rejoice with them and grieve also with them. Give them a garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, a crown of beauty for ashes and an oil of gladness! What a special blessing she must have been to have twins and pursued a good run of nearly 89 yrs. Praise God! Continue to sustain Andrea in her own "race" and ease her pain as she perseveres. Bring healing as she does... each step, each day in Jesus Name...

Father God, You know how I struggle with my emotions so many emotions that flood my soul as I read and pray over each prayer petition or visit the blogs, ohhh how my heart aches and I so easily get overwhelmed. Let me not loose focus as I come before You and channel these emotions of compassion to pray effectively. I hardly know where to begin! But You, Almighty One, certainly know and far beyond what my heart sees or knows, You hold all the answers and all things work together according to Your purpose and Your will. So as I go through these needs and pray, come Holy Spirit, through Your Power and
Might move & touch each one and their loved ones.

Lord Jesus, You identify with our sorrows and loss and need for Your healing touch! Move miraculously over each spoken and unspoken need here at The Lighthouse. Shine forth with Your everlasting, unfailing love.

I start by lifting up my dear sister Denise, friend and devoted follower and prayer warrior; faithful and dedicated to pray for each one of these as she herself needs pray! Touch her in Jesus' name! Heal Denise from the top of her head to the bottom of her feet, flow with Your aMazing Grace and minister to her heart, bless her immensely Lord.

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.
