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.

We needed to start a new March list for prayers and petitions, it was getting real long! A very special "Thanks" to Alice, From the Heart, who has taken on and stood in the gap for so many of the prayer requests, and each of us. Alice is a God send. Thank God for her today! We are lifting you in PRAYER without ceasing if you are on part one or part two of March's linky.

PLEASE URGENTLY KEEP EMMA IN PRAYER, another surgery on Sun. and lift up Heather, Mark (her parents on overload, tired, weary) and the rest of their family... STILL

especially heather 

"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 


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. 

If you need a prayer on "Walking in Faithfulness", I shared one here. Also Wendy, has shared a wonderful series (11 parts) from the book "Do You Pray?" by J. C. Ryle over a Faith's Firm Foundation Please take the time to check out the PRAYERS FOR JANUARY, many still need our prayers and the end of the list also of FEBRUARY'S PETITIONS TO GOD'S THRONE with important prayer requests that still need to be lifted to God's Throne for these precious ones.

Let's us MARCH to God's Throne with these petitions in the authority of Jesus Christ on behalf of one another in Jesus Name... keep pressing on in prayer, please.

Heavenly Father, once again I come to you with all the prayer requests for Febrary and March. I especially lift up little Emma to you and ask that you take her in Your arms during her surgery tomorrow. I pray you will guide the doctors knowledge and their hands as they work with little Emma and I ask that she will come through this surgery without incident and things will go much better for her afterwards. Father, I know you know the feelings Emma's parents have and I ask that you give them peace like they have never felt before In the name of your Son, Jesus because it is by His stripes that she will be healed. I truly believe that and thank You Father in advance for answering our prayers.

I also lift up Denise, Kailly, and Mary Grace and pray that You will bring healing to their bodies in the name of Jesus. Jesus you are so wonderful and deserve all the praise for what you did on Calvary that we might have healing for our bodies and life eternal. Praise you holy name. Father I know it must have been hard to watch what was being done to Your Son. You deserve the glory, honor and praise for the love You have shown us through Your Son.

Peggy said...

Father, Praise going up for Emma! They took her in to surgery sooner but of course, You knew that... Heather called for all early riser prayer warriors to stand with them.

Thank You Lord that as Heather waits that You are with her and the family.

Thank You that You are with the doctors and the nurses! Thank You that all the procedure will be done without any complications!

Praise You Lord for the update that Emma is doing great.

Praise You that they were able to do this laproscopicly! Thank You that You even provided a "mickey button" instead of a gtube. Every little bit helps with this little miracle of Yours, Emma...actually she is a big miracle... but she's little and ever so young.

Thank You for being with Heather and surrounding her with Your love and care for her, her family and Emma! You are more than enough!
Continue Your glorious miracles and we give You all the glory, honor, praise and much thanks!!!

Japan: Christians reach out to a shaken nation

On March 11 the nation of Japan was shaken by a heavy 8.9 magnitude earthquake, followed by a devastating tsunami that left tens of thousands of people dead, missing and unaccounted for.

At the moment of writing a serious nuclear disaster is on the horizon as a result of overheating and explosions at the nation's Fukushima power plant... As Japan is the world's third largest economy, there are also large economic effects as stock markets are tumbling.

According to a report posted at, Christian organizations based in Japan are using social networking sites to coordinate relief efforts.

Christian Relief, Assistance, Support and Hope (CRASH Japan) is working closely with JEMA (the Japanese Evangelical Missionary Association), to coordinate a large network of experienced volunteers who live in Japan and are familiar with the nation's culture and language. Leaders set up a command center in Tokyo with bases in affected areas. Christian aid teams will work through local churches who know the community's needs.

More than 300 churches exist in the area affected by the tsunami. The status of most of them is unknown. Asian Access, a Missions organization that works with over 1,800 churches throughout Japan, has been trying to contact their partners, but communication has been difficult. For more information about the Tsunami relief fund and a message from the President of Asian Access, Joe Handley

Prayer points:

· Pray for all those in Japan to have presence of mind, and for those who are believers to rise to the occasion with the power of the Holy Spirit to meet the needs as He directs them.

· Pray for the Church to unite to reach out to help in the aftermath. Pray for wise response, order and resources applied appropriately.

· Pray for the global Church to wake up to the need to be prepared in order to be His hands and feet in these situations as they begin to unfold so quickly around the world.

· Pray for God's mercy, that there will be more than enough messengers of the gospel in every place to share the good news of His mercy and grace to those who do not yet know Him.

GDOP said...

Continued from above for JAPAN:

Peter Howard with Food for the Hungry says: "For a modern country, the scale of this disaster is unparalleled. Many churches in Japan are opening their doors to receive the survivors. "We believe that the church is God's vehicle for spreading the Gospel of love and compassion and the message of peace," says Howard. "We're really hopeful that the Japanese church supported by churches all around the world will rise up and truly show what Christians are all about."

"The Fukushima and Tohoku Bible chapels are in some of the hardest hit areas," says Stephen Van Valkenburg, a director of Christian Aid. "They have already been evacuated because they are all situated close to the endangered nuclear power plants. There is a lot of panic and help is being distributed to refugees in emergency shelters. These missionaries have some of the most effective outreaches in Japan, so we know that they are sharing the love of God in both word and deed during this tragic time."

Japan is one the wealthiest 'unreached nations' in the world. Its population exceeds 127 million, yet less than one percent of those consider themselves Christians. Society is highly materialistic. Those who do claim a religious preference typically blend elements of Shinto and Buddhism. The regions hit hardest by the earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan’s northern Pacific coast is considered 'hard ground' by missionaries. Disasters always bring up existential questions. This certainly is a time for Christians in Japan and around the world to show God's love to the Japanese people in their time of need.

LIBYA on the brink of war

Government forces are continuing to fight the rebels who took control of several cities after protests and violence broke out last month. While Western nations are working to establish a no-fly zone over Libya, leader Muammar al-Qadhafi appears to be preparing to lay siege to the rebel held city of Benghazi, as well as other towns along the coast.


· The salvation of Muammar al-Qadhafi. Pray for this leader to stop ordering deadly attacks on his own people. (I Timothy 2:1-3)

· Political freedom for Libyans and for the Gospel to reach them. Pray for them to be liberated from the oppression of the current regime and from the oppression of Islam. (Isaiah 42:6,7)

· The Gospel to be made known in this Muslim nation. Ask the Lord to draw the people of Libya out of the dominion of darkness and into the Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Colossians 1:13)

· A great harvest of souls during this time of instability. (John 4:35)

Father, we cry out to You for so much that is happening in this world. May Your kingdom come, as we do Your will to reach these people through our prayers for these areas
and those You have sent there to RESCUE the many from perishing!

I ask that You protect our military and Your Army of missionaries that are in these worn torn areas!

Emergency Prayer Alert for these countries: Bahrain, Libya, Yemen, Iran, Cote d'Ivore (Ivory Coast), Ethiopia, Egypt, Sudan, North Africa and the least goes on... you know my heart is for Mexico but so many places in Japan and the Pacific...Ohhh Lord...Save us, be merciful and give us Your grace to reach the unreached in Jesus Name and the power of Your Holy Spirit

A Christian leader in a Muslim nation in South Asia will be conducting evangelical meetings the weekend of
March 18-20. He and a fellow pastor plan to enter a very dangerous region that is known as both a stronghold
of radical Islam and of terrorists as well.
Three residents from the region will meet the two leaders and assist them in sharing the Gospel in two
meetings. They will also be holding a 10/40 Window seminar.
 The Lord to put His hedge of protection around these men as they venture into enemy territory. Pray for mighty,
warring angels to be assigned to them during every step of their journey. (Psalm 91:3-8; 11)
 These men to find favor with God and with the people. Pray for God's anointing to destroy every yoke and for the
people to have ears to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying through these Brothers. (Luke 2:52)
 The Lord Himself to help them. Pray for them to be led by the Holy Spirit and not be afraid. (Isaiah 41:13,14)
 The men to have the discernment of the sons of Issachar and be able to discern the times. (I Chronicles 12:32)
 This team to be invincible and invisible to the powers of darkness. Pray for them to be effective in their mission.
(I Samuel 26:12; Zechariah 2:5)
 The safety of their families while the men are on assignment. Ask the Lord to guard and watch over them. (Job 1:10)
 The Holy Spirit to go before them, softening hearts and preparing divine appointments and power encounters that will
advance the Kingdom of God in this region. (Acts 8:26-39; Ephesians 2:10)
 The tearing down of the strongholds of false religions, violence, hatred, terror and intimidation. (II Corinthians 10:4)
 Christians in this Muslim nation to be bold in sharing the Gospel. Pray for them to join together in the spiritual battle for
their nation in prayer. (Ephesians 6:19; Acts 4:29,30)
 Muslims to put their faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord as the result of this mission. Pray for a great harvest of souls
as God's Kingdom comes in power. (Acts 2:37; I Corinthians 4:20)

Operation Mobilization

Praying for:
Right now, all the major cities of North Africa are seeing massive protests. Some protests are being tolerated and dispersed with lower levels of force, as in Morocco and Algeria. One is being brutally repressed by the government of
Colonel Qaddafi in Libya using heavy military weapons against his own people to retain power.

Libya, Egypt, Bahrain, Tunisia, Yemen, Algeria, Jordan, Syria, Morocco, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Oman, Qater, Kuwait, UAE, Lebanon, Sudan

How do we pray for all these lands?
Lord, we ask for Your might and power so
That the civil unrest spreading throughout North Africa and the Middle East will be an open door for the Gospel to reach many Muslims.
 That the Lord will continue shaking this region, toppling spiritual strongholds and setting the captives free.
That Christians will seize this opportunity to share the love of God with their Muslim neighbors, friends and co-workers. (I)Pray for them to be bold, strong and courageous
 That the Holy Spirit will build the Church and give Christians wisdom in how to pray and what to do during this time of turmoil.
That protesters will realize Jesus Christ is the answer to their discontent. (I)Pray for them to put their faith in Him as Savior and Lord.
 That the leaders in all of the nations where demonstrations are taking place will be saved.
That a great harvest of souls will result from these events.


Thank You for the Global Day of Prayer and their prayer alerts and the many serving You! I ask for Your hedge of Protection around Your people so that they may continue Your work for Your Kingdom

From the Heart said...

Father, I wrote a prayer of agreement with Peggy for all that are listed who need your healing touch. Also I prayed in agreement for the countries Peggy listed that are having uprisings and for the protection of missionaries and the salvation of those they are being ministered to. I also mentioned the 24th Chapter of Luke that tells us all these things will happen but we who are in Christ need not be afraid. Thank you Father for your love and protection for all your people and I ask that the Holy Spirit knock at the doors of the hearts of our extended families who do not know you as their Savior. I pray that their eyes will be opened that they might see you and their ears will be opened that they might hear your voice calling them to bow before you and give their hearts and lives to you in the name of Jesus. Father, I also ask for a hedge of protection around Peggy as she goes about doing the work You have called her to do in the name of Jesus.

Peggy (mazmagi) said...

Heavenly Father...Thank You for the effective prayers of the faithful...
Alice, in this case... her previous prayers and the one lost but the above prayer of agreement is more than enough, You heard and saw the first and we thank You and praise You as we do not fear but stand together seeking You!

I ask that You cover Alice and her MRI this week. That You go before her and be with her. And even now Lord, that You be the calm before any 'storm'... that You place peace around Alice... that You prepare the way and the medical people to resolve her numbness, or even that we may ask for a miracle once again from You and Your mighty power to heal in Jesus Name... Help Alice to rest and also be comfortable during the testing! We cast our cares upon You! You are with Alice and her husband. You hold them tenderly close to Your heart!

Thank You for the peace that Alice found as she visited the Super SONday sisters... thank You for speaking through each one to her and me! We each need each other and the encouragement comes through them from You! I praise Your Holy name along with Alice! Bless her and each of the SUPER SONday friends... be with us throughout this week as we draw closer and intercede for others each day or whenever You prompt us... Thank You for the privilege to come to Your Throne and Thank You Lord Jesus that You are already interceding as our Advocate... You are so good! You make all things new and we come bowing before You and honoring You as Lord and Savior to the world. Yes, Lord as Alice prayed may they come to know You and we thank You that we do... thank You... thank You for Your saving grace... I am amazed!!!

Health and Healing

Father, in the name of Jesus, I come before You asking You to heal me. It is written that the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if I have committed sins, I will be forgiven. I let go of all unforgiveness, resentment, anger and bad feelings toward anyone.

My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, and I desire to be in good health. I seek truth that will make me free – both spiritual and natural (good eating habits, medications if necessary, and appropriate rest and exercise). You bought me at a price, and I desire to glorify you in my spirit and my body – they both belong to you.

Thank you, Father, for sending Your Word to heal me and deliver me from all my destructions. Jesus, You are the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us. You bore my griefs (pains) and carried my sorrows (sickness). You were pierced through for my transgressions, crushed for my iniquities, the chastening for my well-being fell upon You, and by your scourging I am healed.

Father, I give attention to Your words, and incline my ear to your sayings. I will not let them depart from my sight, but keep them in the midst of my heart. For they are my life and health to my whole body.

Since the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in me, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to my mortal body through His Spirit who dwells in me.

Thank You that I will prosper and be in health even as my soul prospers. Amen.

Praise You, Father God... Healer ... thank You ever so much... sorry for all my world concern prayers above but You know how I want to share the world's concerns with many so that it becomes a heart concern for many... to uphold the nations... anyways... on to part of our thanks and praise to You for Abby... and our new praise request for Abby...

"Abby's surgery went beautifully. Thank you for praying for her. Her surgeon not only removed her port, he also cleaned up an ugly scar that was on her tummy. Some of you may remember when she had a horrible infection at her g-tube site. The infection happened after the toughest round of chemo, her immune system was almost nonexistent and stayed at zero for weeks . It could have easily taken her from us."

So now we come to You for this:

"...We would appreciate your prayers. Abby's neurologist has been weaning her off of medication for her intracrainial hypertension. Abby has been complaining about headaches for several days. At first she just said it was a little headache but now it is keeping her awake and she is saying the pain medication isn't working."

So we take the authority of Christ and His healing power, and tell those headaches to cease in Jesus Name... we lay our hands on Abby's head and we command this mountain to be moved... You know why Lord for Abby's headaches and You can also cause the pain to go but that the right pain medication and amount be found... Yet nothing is too difficult for You! You are great and mighty! We trust in You! We believe in You as Abby's healer!
We stand with Brent and Michelle and their family... and give You all the glory, honor and praise for the success so far...

Heavenly Father, I just lift up Larry Crabb and his family to you. I'm not quiet sure what is going on in His body but You do. I just ask in the name of Jesus, that the test to see the extent of cancer will be completely negative, that You will have gone before the drs. and healed him. Oh, Father, so many people who need your touch, but nothing is too big for you so we believe You are in control of Larry's physical problems and that you will bless his family. Thank you in advance for the answer. Father I take no credit for anything you do, I'm just a vessel in Your hands praying as You lead and may we never forget to give You the honor, glory and praise for all that is accomplished in the lives of the people we have presented to You today. Praise Your Holy name. I just love you more and more each day.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I come here today to thank you for Abby's successful surgery. I pray that she will soon be home and able to do the things a child this age usually does. You are so wonderful.

I ask once again that you answer the prayers for Larry Crabb and that the drs. will fine no cancer at all and that You will get all the praise for what You have done.

I thank you for the prayers that have been prayed for me. My trust is completely in You.

I just lift You up and honor You Father for who You are and for all the blessings You have given to all the people who have asked for prayer. Praise Your Holy name.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I come to you this afternoon in the name of Your Son, Jesus asking that you heal my sister-in-law's toe. You know the pain she is having and exactly what the problem is and I'm believing that You are healing her now. You know the problems she and my husband's brother have been through and the many miracles that You have performed in the lives of these two people. Praise You and thank You for the answer to my prayers.

From the Heart said...

Father, we ask that You take care of the people in Thailand where there's been an earthquake. I pray especially for those who are there working for You and those who know you. I also ask that the Holy Spirit will knock at the heart's door of the people who live there who do not know Jesus as their Savior. May there be someone to tell them that they need to surrender their lives to Jesus because that the only way to get to know You and life eternal.

After reading Emma's story written by her mother, Lord Jesus I ask for healing of Emma's body and for peace in the heart's of her parents. You know Emma's situation better than we do. Whatever You do for this family we give you honor and glory and all the praise.

Father, I lift up Denise to you also that she will receive healing for her body and can continue her work here at The Lighthouse.

Father, You are great, You do miracles so great, there is no one like You. Holy, holy, holy, we say Holy, holy Lord God Almighty. We lift our hands and worship You for who You are and all that You do for those who know You as their King.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I come to you once again asking you to overshadow my sister-in-law. I pray that you will guide the doctors tomorrow as they replace the stint that is in her leg and heal her toe. Father you have been so faithful to this sister-in-law and her husband (my BIL). Thank you for once again coming to their rescue. They are so faithful in serving you. I give you all the praise for what you are doing in their lives.

Peggy (mazmagi) said...

Yes, Lord...amen and amen! Praise be to You for all You are doing for Alice, her husband, her BIL and SIL especially for tomorrow for Alice and her SIL! You are with them and go before them to prepare the BEST care!

You are their Great Physician! You are Healer! Bring relief and soothe any pain. Calm each and give them the peace that passes all understanding! I pray that this is the reason for the infection and now this will all be resolved.

Be with Alice and Denise as they go for their medical visits as well!
Cover these precious sisters as only You can. We give you thanks for who You are and the strength You give us to face difficulties and pain. You are more than enough!
You can move every mountain and You can be ever present with my dear sisters! I stand with Alice in prayer and once more thank You for her. We do exalt You with praise, glory, honor, thanks and love...
so much love for You...

From the Heart said...

Father, I just lift up Denise to you as she goes for her doctor visit. I agree with Peggy in her prayer regarding Denise that things will go according to Your will. You are the Great Physician and we look to You for the answers to all our problems and pray You will give the doctors the knowledge they need in helping with the healing of Denise, my SIL, myself and my husband who is having some difficulty this morning with his ears.

We give you honor and praise for all that is accomplished this day.

From the Heart said...

Father, I come to you once again asking for healing of Emma. You know better than any of us just what she needs and I ask in the name of Your Son, Jesus, that You supply Emma's every need and raise her up. She is Your child and I know that You love her and her family. Give them all peace that passeth all understanding. May, Emma have a very restful night as well as her family. Thank You for what you have done in this little girl's life already and for what You will do for her in the future.
You are our creator and our healer and I give you all the glory, honor and praise for all that You do for Emma and all the others listed who need Your help. Praise Your Holy name.

From the Heart said...

I have just visited the blog about Emma. Her mom says (3-27-11) "Emma's kidneys are not producing like they should. She is going to the operating room to have a cath put in this afternoon for CRRT (continual renal replacement therapy) It is a 24 hour dialysis and she will be on it anywhere from 7-14 days. We were here one year ago, for those of you who have been following our journey. We covet your prayers during this time, it is going to be rough for Emma and for us."

Heavenly Father, we come once again to ask You to be with Emma through this time with the catheter. You know this little girl so much better than we do and how much she has been through. I I know that You love her very much so I just ask in the name of Your Son, Jesus, that You bring peace, love and healing to Emma's body. For all that You have done for her and all that You are going to do, we give You the glory, honor and praise. Please give peace and comfort to the family as well, especially her mother who has been through a lot herself.
Thank you Father for Your unfailing love.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I come to you again today asking for healing of those listed above. You know each one of them and what their needs are. I ask in the name of your Son,Jesus,that You heal each one and supply their every need.

Father, it seems our family is being attacked in more ways than one. You already know the needs of my husband and I. Now I'm asking for healing of my husband's sister. You know her heart and you know exactly what she needs so I am placing her in Your hands believing that You will supply her every need. I thank you for the privilege of having the opportunity for us to talk with her last night and pray with her. Father, you know that our extended families have been in my prayers for a while and one by one you are answering my prayers. I give You all the honor, glory and praise for what You are doing in our families. There are still so many that do not know You as their Savior and I plead the blood of Jesus for them that they all will listen to your call upon their lives. Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty. You are more precious than anyone and we give You all the glory for using us to help the ones that will let us. To God be the glory.

URGENT PRAYER for a sweet, dear 91 yr. old mama of Jackie


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.
