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.

There are two URGENT PRAYER REQUESTS here for two precious people, one an adult and one a child, both need MIRACLES:

I know many of you are keeping up with and praying for JOANNE and Toben, and their 2 girls. Here are today's specific prayer requests, but you can check out more information on The Simple Wife and also on Twitter:

joanne button Sweet Ps : Prayer for Joanne Heim at The Simple WifePrayer requests:
1. Audrey is really struggling. Between what's going on with Joanne, starting back at school, and being a 12 year old girl, she is in a pretty tough space. Simple prayer for her is that she would eat and sleep well so that she has the energy to deal with all the emotions she is wrestling with.
2. This is a selfish prayer but if/when Joanne opens her eyes for the first time in almost 10 days I want to be there for it. Obviously we will be thrilled whenever she opens her eyes, but if I could be there to see her come back that would be deeply meaningful.
3. Please pray that Joanne won't get any other sort of infection. Between the breathing tube and the meds that she is ont here is some risk of pneumonia.

Toben did not add this above but he wrote this in one of the recent blog posts:

"On another note, I would appreciate prayer on something: I need to stay in the moment. So often my mind races ahead, I want to know now what the future holds for Joanne. I want to know if she is going to open her eyes.  I want to know if she will be able to recognize me. I want to know if she will understand me or be able to talk. I want to know if she will...fill in the blank. But you know what? I need to take it a day at a time.  I need to take what God has planned for today knowing that he will provide the strength that I need for today. So, please pray that my mind will be guarded from getting ahead of itself." ~ Toben
I asked for prayers for this little one in last week's petitions to GOD...


And I MUST add this URGENT PRAYER need directly from SUSANA's father Cody's blog 
"And How can They Hear" because too many times, I feel I share links and people do not go and READ and this one breaks my heart, God's and Susana's parents and family PLEASE PRAY and visit them to give your support as they go through this:

Susana’s tumors are back…and worse than before
January 20, 2011
Our hearts ache without limit right now.  Words fail me.  Her tumors are back.  It’s very very bad.  She has them everywhere, including one on her brain.  We’re losing our little girl.  Without any further treatment, she has about a few months to live.  Her body will soon begin deteriorating and will cause a lot of pain.  The treatment options that we are presented with are few and are experimental all throughout.
Our conversation with the oncologist today had phrases like “quality of life” and “pain medication” interspersed throughout.  This is really happening.  I cannot even think straight.
Yet at the same time, the grace of God is mysteriously with us.  We have wept like crazy, but at the same time know that we can let her go be with Jesus.  He is the prize for which we chase hard after every day…and it seems like Susana will be the one who gets there first.  This will only make our longing for the Kingdom to come all the more.
Please pray for us as we have some important decisions that need to be made very soon.  This is the hardest thing that we have ever been faced with.  We need the Lord’s peace, comfort, strength, grace, and wisdom.  He is still who we cling to.  He is still who we love.  I don’t understand why, but I know that He is good and that He has reason for everything He does.  I also know that death is not the victor to those who hope in Christ.  It is just the beginning, the entry point into eternal glory.  And it seems like the Lord is calling Susana through that entry point.  We will rejoice with her, and we will weep.  That’s the way it will be.  Right now though, I’m just weeping. 
~ Cody and Maria Whittaker (parents of Susana)
My heart is overwhelmed as I pray and cry out with/for these precious families! 

REMEMBER only PRAYERS in the comments! I'm sorry but Comments will need to be deleted. This is a PRAYER BLOG only!

Dear Lord, please watch over those suffering with illness, their care-givers, and their loved ones.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women. Blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. 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.
