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.

FAITH DECLARATIONS for our PRAYER CHALLENGE (Part I)

I recently read these over at THE MARKINGS IN THE WOOD and Debby graciously has allowed me to share them here too... (note the source below) I believe that these will be a good groundwork for our 40 Days of Prayer starting March 9th HERE...start your prayer time declaring these for at least 30 days or all 40...


Romans 10:14 (57 kb)
...or in our case, here at the LIGHTHOUSE of PRAYER...without someone PRAYING for them?


Declarations #1 (Romans 4:17; Romans 10:9,10) These ten basic declarations are foundational to the building of your faith.  They will increase expectancy of God’s goodness; and, thus, will increase the manifestation of that goodness in your life.  Jesus said, “According to your faith, so be it” (Matthew 8:13).  Say these (and the other declarations lists) everyday for a month and see what happens to your life.


1. My prayers are powerful and effective (2 Cor. 5:21; James 5:16b).
2. God richly supplies all my financial needs (Phil. 4:19).
3. I am dead to sin and alive to obeying God (Romans 6:11).
4. I walk in ever-increasing health (Isaiah 53:3-5; Psalm 103:1-3).
5. I live under a supernatural protection (Psalm 91).
6. I prosper in all my relationships (Luke 2:52).
7. I consistently bring God encounters to other people (Mark 16:17,18).
8. Through Jesus I am 100% loved and worthy to receive all of God’s blessings (Gal. 3:1-5).
9. Each of my family members is wonderfully blessed and radically loves Jesus (Acts 16:30,31).
10. I uproariously laugh when I hear a lie from the devil (Psalm 2:2-4).


Hebrews 11:1 (63 kb)


Declarations #2  Remember this: Faith is the evidence of things not seen (Heb. 11:1).  Our “evidence” for things being true is not our circumstances, but God’s promises.  We don’t deny negative facts in our lives, but we choose to focus on a higher reality: God’s truth.  Faith indeed comes by hearing (Romans 10:17); therefore, we choose to speak these powerful truths to build our own faith.


1. I set the course of my life with my declarations (James 3:2-5).
2. God is on my side; therefore I declare that I cannot be defeated, discouraged, depressed or disappointed  (Rom. 8:37; Psalm 91; Phil. 4:13).
3. I am the head, not the tail.  I have insight.  I have wisdom.  I have ideas and divine strategies. 
I have authority (Deut. 28:13; Deut. 8:18; James 1:5-8; Luke 10:19).
4. As I speak God’s promises, they come to pass.  They stop all attacks, assaults, oppression, and fear from my life  (2 Peter 1:2-4; Mark 11:23-24).
5. God is on my side today and therefore I cannot be defeated. (Romans 8:37; Psalms 91)
6.  I have the wisdom of God today.  I will think the right thoughts, say the right words, and make the right decisions in every situation I face (James 1:5; 1 Cor. 2:16).
7. I expect to have powerful divine appointments today to heal the sick, to raise the dead, to prophesy life, to lead people to Christ, to brink deliverance, to release signs and wonders and to bless every place I go (the book of Acts).
8. I expect the best day of my life spiritually, emotionally, relationally, and financially in Jesus’ name (Rom. 15:13).
Psalm 36:5-6 (31 kb)


Declarations #3  One of the main “methods” Jesus and the apostles used (in the gospels and Acts) was to SPEAK TO things.  You will notice that they did not ask God to heal people, to cast out demons, or to raise the dead; but they spoke to bodies, to demons, to the wind, etc.  Jesus encouraged us to speak to mountains in Mark 11:23.  This set of declarations focuses much on our speaking to the various aspects in our lives.


1. I have a covenant with God, and by the blood of Jesus I release my divine protection and divine provision (Hebrews 8:6).
2. My angels are carrying out the Word of God on my behalf (Psalm 103:20).
3. Any adversity, attack, accidents and tragedies that were headed my way are diverted right now in Jesus’ name (Psalm 91).
4. I speak to the raging waters in my life; peace, be still.  I say to my mind; peace, be still.  I say to my emotions; peace, be still.  I say to my body; peace, be still.  I say to my home; peace, be still.  I say to my family; peace, be still (Mark 4:39).
5. Now I speak to every mountain of fear, every mountain of discouragement, every mountain of stress, every mountain of depression, every mountain of lack and insufficiency; and I say, “Be removed and cast into the sea in Jesus’ name!” (Mark 11:22-24)
6. And I speak to this day and I call you blessed.  And I declare that I serve a mighty God who today will do exceedingly and abundantly beyond all that I can ask or think (Ephesians 3:20).  I say you are a good God and I  eagerly anticipate your goodness today.

Romans 4:25 (30 kb)


Another blog ME BEING REAL personally added 18 more. That's enough to cover each of the 40 days. 




* after publishing this as one post, I decided to break it into two parts; The Declarations here in Part I (which I have also added along the sidebars) and other suggestions to help your "40 Days of Prayer" (Part II) Challenge, with another set of Declarations of WHO I AM in Christ.

Declaration #2:

1. I set the course of my life with my declarations (James 3:2-5)

Father, I stumble in many ways. We all stumble just as we all have sinned and fall short of Your glory.

Forgive me, Lord.

I am not a perfect person... and I hardly know anyone who is never at fault in what is said, but help each of us anyways to keep our whole body in check. But guard our tongues!

Just as when I put the bit into the mouth of my horse to make him obey, and to be able to turn the whole animal, may You teach us to bridle our tongue. Speak words that declare a positive course for my life and the life of those I speak to...

Just as the ships are steered by a very small rudder,so it my tongue a small body part with much power. I declare that You are in control of my tongue. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my words... bring glory to You and in their force may the words honor You.

Just as a small spark can set a forest on fire... so may I set on fire not with a destructive force but with all spiritual force, declarations that will ablaze my life with the Gospel and life of Jesus Christ; with the fire of the Holy Spirit, may my words produce His fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, goodness, and self control along with mercy and forgiveness.

Thank You Lord, that greater is He who is in me than he that is of this world. May others see a difference from the words that proceed out of my mouth in Jesus Name...

Lord, I come before You and before my brothers and sisters in Christ to confess my sins, particularly _______, _________, _________
that I am struggling with this week.

I confess to you all that through my fault, I have sinned against God and I ask that you pray for me to the Lord, Our God so that I may be cleansed and healed.

I need to confess my faults and sins first so that I may come to You, Father with powerful and effective prayers of my righteousness in Christ Jesus.

Thank You for hearing my confession. Thank You for Your mercies that are new every morning and each time I confess and admit my need for You, as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for Your forgiveness and paying the price for me that I could never pay.
Thank You Father that You made Him who had no sin be sin for me so through Him, I might become the righteousness of God. Glory!

Thank you, my brothers and sisters in Christ, for going before the Lord on my behalf. Forgive me if I have offended you as I forgive you for any offense against me in Jesus name and authority, I declare we are forgiven and are powers are powerful and effective. Hallelujah!

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.
