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.

PRAYER PETITIONS LIFTED TO HIS THRONE

"Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken"
"For where two or three come together in my name,
there am I with them."
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, here it will read 


"PRAYERS LIFTED TO THE THRONE of GOD."

We'd love to see your Prayer requests (Petitions) 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 encouraging you all to pray whenever you read a need of someone, so 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 all can lift up a prayer for each person and encourage someone, help to carry another's burden, stand with them and bless them. 

The Linky asks for a blog link (BUT 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. 


Thank you for lifting one another in prayer. God bless you as you pray. May His Holy Spirit fill you as you stand in the gap.


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


Sorry that the Lighthouse is not being tended currently, but the Almighty sees and hears each one of you as you come here to pray for someone or ask for prayer... HE IS HERE, HE IS WITH YOU...

Father, You know how burdened my heart has been for Mrs. Lyndsey' family.I can't go into details at my blog because of privacy and how Satan can use it to bring harm so I am coming here and thank You because I know You were the One that lead me here this morning.

Father, I pray for her two daughters. I pray for her ex husband. I pray for the teachers and the staff, the children at the school.

Father, as I shared with Toni on Monday..'she believed that everyone was better off without her. She believed she was causing more pain staying here.'....

Father, my heart breaks to know the manner of how she took her life. Such a sign of great anguish and pain, hurting so deeply.

I know she loved You. I know she sought Your counsel and prayed, cried and sought help. As Toni stated to the principal "did we do everything to help her, did she feel like we were there to help her, to support her? Did we do everything?"...SIGH.....

Oh my Jesus, wrap your loving arms around this woman's family,friends and loved ones during this difficult time of mourning and for the first Christmas without her...

amen amen amen

Come Holy Spirit with all Your Comfort over us, over this precious family and my dear sister.

Wrap each of them with Your Divine Protection and Loving arms!

Father, I stand together with my sister Angela. Such pain and sorrow when one reaches the end of their rope and desperately ends their life. Angela found the right place to come and grieve and share her sorrow and I thank you, Lord that she came here in such a heavy time to lift up all that will grieve the loss of this person.

I have been in this place in desperation walking along the beach, I cried out to You and You saved me. I don't know the details here, Lord...and thankfully, I don't need to in order to stand with my dear sister because You knew this long before we did...

I am currently mourning the loss of my dear, close friend that took his life a year ago this past Monday...and the pain of being with his family as they pray and mourn for the "novena" breaks me even more.

Send Your Comforter...Your wonderful loving arms to wrap around us as we mourn the loss and the insurmountable questions that taunt us.

Raise up a shield of protection from the enemy with his lies and doubts that flood our hearts with what could we have done... these are your children, Lord... desperately seeking an answer to the end. Pour Your Hope into the souls that are left here trying to cope and understand our loss.
We ask for Your everlasting love and mercy over these precious souls. We thank You that Your love is greater than what we can understand. I know the empty whole and "what if's" that are left when one reaches out to You in the darkness and struggles. I ask that You fill this with Your holy, anointed Light. I ask that You remove the last image I have of my friend as I cut him down and whatever this family has as their discovered the horror of this truth. Life is hard, Lord. And we so desperately need You! Come to these families and loved ones, friends and others that know this precious soul and allow them to soak in Your Glorious Presence with the assurance that You are there, You are with them just as You were with my friend and Mrs. L... Ohhh, Lord!

I have so much overwhelmingly grief when I hear so many desperate people giving up. I ask that You would guard the hearts and minds of those left behind that the enemy would not have any power of them or taunt them with the same thoughts. It is so easy to get caught up in a continuous cycle of spiraling down. Protect each one and give them courage to face each day and press on. We ask all of this in Your Precious, beloved Son Jesus' Name, who sacrificed His life so that each of us would have an abundant life and an eternal life. We thank You! We love You! We give You praise...because in the praise, we can confront the valleys, the darkness and the storms... Praise You Lord... Praise You for her life and every one that knew her. Praise You for Your love that surrounds us when we grieve. Praise You Lord, enable us to put on the garment of PRAISE for the spirit of heaviness...

Oh God, most gracious heavenly Father, that you would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain (to You, my loved ones, my church family, to those who stand in need of your love, mercy, and salvation--or to myself). May You be glorified, Oh lovely and loving One. Thank You in Jesus' name, amen.

God, the shortest verse in the Bible tells me that "Jesus wept." Do I make You weep? I don't want to make You weep. I want to please You and make You happy. Please, open my eyes and show me the things in my life that make You sad, the sin that may be in my life, sin to which I have become blind. Show me the little things, the big things. Show me Your glory and help me to see myself in Your eyes, as Isaiah did when he cried out, "Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips." Please forgive me. Thank you, my loving God, for Your grace. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Lord, I lift Your precious name on high. I love You beyond measure. Please be with my sister Vicky as she is having a needle biopsy done on her breast this afternoon. Touch her body, heal her as only You can do. I believe in You Father. 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.
