A Blessed & Happy New Year



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

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.

Help me to lead others to You with that same passion and love for You that I have and the thankfulness of knowing You!

Thank You Father for Your beautiful love that You so freely share with me, and others daily. Thank You for Your peace that passes all understanding. Thank You for Your healing powers, and for miracles that still exist. Thank You for Your precious gift of salvation, that sets all sinners free. Thank You for my life. I love You Father. Amen

Denise said...

Thank You precious Father for taking the pain away from sister Peggy's back. I praise You for hearing our prayers, and choosing to quickly answer them. You are so good to us, thank You. We love You so very, very much, and appreciate You more than our words can express. Amen

Denise said...

Dear heavenly Father, thanks is so inadequate for how I feel about You. I appreciate everything You do for me, and for others. You are so gracious to us all. I will never be able to thank You enough. I love You Father. Amen

Peggy said...

O Most Holy Father... Denise is so right, "thanks is so inadequate"...
yet we come with grateful hearts for everything!

Some people join together in saying Thanks today and others have a continuous list of 1,000+ with a community of Gratitude... a multitude of many gifts You give us each day...
I cannot think of a day that goes by that I cannot find something to tell You how thankful I am...
from the first breath of the day, to even greater wonders like healings and miracles!

Today for example, 33 lives that were saved and spared for these last 69 days.

I thank You for water running out of my faucets. Pesos enough to buy bread tonight and food this day.
Enough love to cover me forever from You. I thank You for the small birds I shared the bread with and my dogs.

Father, there are not enough thank You's to span all the blessings You pour over us. We are blessed to know You and have received the gift of salvation through Your Son, Jesus. So grateful to be able to spend time in Your Word and have the Bible available to me!

Yes, Lord, I give You thanks for each part of this day even the frustrations or disappointments that prove You are still there and You still care, that You do Provide our daily bread and needs that we are not even aware of... You simple tell us to ask according to Your will and seek Your will for us.

I thank You for the songs in my heart today and the dances of my feet, for ears to hear and feet that feel the movement, for eyes to see, for a voice to sing... I thank You for sisters in the Lord, and sisters like dear Denise that lift others in prayer and stand with them. That she encourages each of us and our blogs as she walks through some difficult times. I thank You that You are there to provide a way. Thank You for making a way each day! Thank You that we can pray and wait on You!

Denise said...

Thank You Father for another day filled with Your precious love, ad creation. I lift my hands with much love and praise to You. I love You. Amen

Peggy said...

Thank You Jesus for Your great sacrifice, for coming to earth and honoring through obedience to Our Father, redeeming us, who believe!

Thank You Father, for offering us a way to eternity through Your Son.

Thank You, Holy Spirit for breathing on this day and guiding us to share the Truth, the Light, the Way and be a witness to the life of Jesus Christ to others!

Thank You for the simple things in life. Thank You for our daily provision. Thank You for releasing Your Provision over my sisters just
as You do with Your Protection. Your riches and gifts are immeasureable! Your prosperity awaits us! We ask for Your bountiful blessings to help us meet each day and debt. Thank You for giving us each day our daily bread!

We are so blessed to know You, to take hold of Your hand as we seek Your face! Thank You!

Denise said...

I love You Father, and thank You for keeping me wrapped up in Your loving arms daily. You are my vision, thank You Father. I love You. Amen

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.
