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.

APRIL'S PETITIONS to GOD'S THRONE

PLEASE URGENTLY KEEP EMMA IN PRAYER, and lift up Heather, Mark (her parents on overload, tired, weary) and the rest of their family... STILL; it's been 1 month in PICU Day 5 Dialysis


especially heather 
I added an UPDATE ON SHORTYBEAR (DENISE) 
in the comment area from Eddie (her dear husband)
"Prayers Lifted to the Throne of God"
PLEASE PRAY for DENISE
Pray for Denise & Eddie

"Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken"
Ecclesiastes 4:12
DO YOU BELIEVE THIS VERSE?
Then LET US JOIN TOGETHER, PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER and WITH ONE ANOTHER
"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" or just add it, if there's a LINKY PRAYER REQUEST

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. All prayers welcome. 

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. Thanks for sharing people that you find need prayer. THANK YOU FOR PRAYING FOR ONE ANOTHER!

This is Eddie with an update on Shortybear, she really needs all of your prayers. She has been, and continues to be sicker than I have ever seen her. She is having so much pain in her stomach, and is constantly throwing up. She can barely eat, or drink, and keep it down. She now weighs 112, and is so weak, and tired. Her diabetes has also been causing trouble too, she has been in diabetic acidiosis twice. I have had to take her to the hospital six times, and last week, I had to call the ambulance to come get her. They have still not done the colonoscopy, because she has been so sick. They will be doing it this Friday(April 8) at 9:30 in the morning. Please say a prayer for her, they think she has ulcerative colitis, or crohns disease, plus some other problems. Wednesday(April 6) will be our 26th wedding anniversary, I am so happy to be married to her. I cherish each second with her, I thank God for keeping her here with me, without her, there is no me. Thank you all for loving her, caring about her, and praying for her. We both appreciate your kindness to us. She loves you all so very, very much, and is constantly praying for each one of you. Please keep following her, she loves her blog so much, she misses it. Take care, I promise to keep you updated on her progress. Eddie

Heavenly Father, I come before You each day and ask that You heal Denise! There is nothing impossible or too difficult for You, but it is becoming a real battle for Denise and Eddie as she keeps fighting this stomach problem, which triggers more problems with her diabetes and this vicious cycle must end. Yes, Lord, You do carry Denise and we do trust You to heal her and turn this around. May You stop the pain first of all. Give her comfort and strength as Denise endures this illness.

Today, Lord I start over with Your healing scriptures, and I pray Your Word over Denise, Emma and Alleluiabelle's husband...

Your Word in Exodus says..."if WE
listen carefully to Your Voice and do what it right in Your eyes, if WE pay attention to Your commands and keep all Your decrees, You will not bring on us any of the diseases that You brought on the Egyptians... for You are the LORD who heals Denise, Emma and A's husband."

Nothing is beyond You or Your control or Your power.

We plead the blood of Jesus over them. We thank You for the healing power and Your strength flowing into them right as we pray. We accept Your Promises and Healing in Jesus Name and ask for strength to be returned, for bodies to be healed and wisdom to all concerned with aiding in Your Will and Healing Miracle. You are the Great Physician. You are the Lord our Healer! You are Jehovah Rapha! There is none like You! You are Mighty and we give You all the honor, glory and praise as You finish and complete the GOOD work that You began in each of these.
We thank You that You are the God that heals! You are our strength!
You won the victory over sin and death, You already defeated the enemy! So defeat these "enemies" that are causing pain, illness, and malfunctions in these bodies. Restore them as You created them.

We await a good report! We thank You for each step along the way of encouragement, hope and love on each one as You keep them close to You and their loved ones. Thank You! Thank You ever so much! We love You! We exalt You! You are the Lord that Heal-eth these...You are the Lord, their Healer! You sent Your Word and healed their disease.
You are the Lord, their Healer!

Singing unto YOU! and believing You

Father God...we bring these precious children to the pool of Your healing waters...we pray that as the waters as stirred, these brothers and sisters are drenched in fountains of restoration, strength, and comfort...

You know the exact needs of each one...and we are praying for Your will to be done...for Your glory...

I lift up a special prayer for my sweet sister Denise...Your daughter...precious Shortybear, who time and time again encouraged and inspired so many of us to keep pressing on to the mark...be with her and her lovebug as they go through this season...give them both a mighty touch...to their bodies, minds, and spirits...pour Your sweet Holy Spirit upon them so they will feel Your never failing love and be clothed with that power from on high to stand stong...

I pray You will bless my sister Peggy as she journeys these 40 days with You and continues to lift up so many before Your throne...fill her life with so much joy and peace that her heart will not be able to contain it all...

All these things I humbly ask in Jesus' precious name...amen

Heavenly Father, I come here today in agreement with the prayers that have already been prayed by Peggy and Karen. Bless these dear people, Father and heal them in the name of your son, Jesus, who bore the stripes on His back for our healing. I give You praise, honor and glory for what Tou are doing in the lives of Denise, Alleluiabelle, Ron, little Emma, Pia's family, myself and my SIL and my husband.

Father, You are so wonderful to all of us and I give You praise for all that You are doing and thanks for all the help You have given me this week. You are wonderful, powerful and holy. Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty. Amen.

From the Heart said...

Father, I come to you again to ask for healing for Denise, Alleluiabelle and husband, Ron, Little Emma and Heather. I pray the results of Pia's Dad's test will be negative. I also pray for healing of my husband and myself. I ask for healing for my SIL. You know the extinct of the cancer in her body and I just pray that you will heal her, give her peace and a closer walk with You. You are the great I AM who knows, sees and cares about your children. I take You at Your word that by the stripes of your Son, Jesus, these people will be healed. There is nothing too great for You and I stand on your promises that we can ask anything in the name of Your Son, Jesus, and it shall be done.
Father, God, I give you all the praise, honor and glory that you deserve. You are wonderful, counselor and so much more. The answer to all our problems is found in You. Praise Your holy, holy name. Thank you for the many times you have spared my life and brought me through so much. You are great, You do miracles so great, there is no one like you. Amen.

Peggy (mazmagi) said...

Heavenly Father, Here we are still pressing the gates of Heaven for a touch from You for Alice, her husband and dear SIL; Denise and Eddie; Emma and her family; Pia's father and her;
Allelluiabelle and Ron; all the spoken and unspoken needs that You already know... I come to stand with my dear sister in Christ - Alice as You have led her to pray again for these until we can see You hand for we know You are at work. We praise You and wait to give You the glory for great works You have done and are doing! You are more than enough! You hold the keys! You are the Healer! Your way is perfect! Although at times, we may not understand or see, we come in faith and believe. We trust that You desire to do great miracles.

So in the authority of Christ and by Your Holy Spirit's power we ask that You move the mountains before each of these precious ones. We passionately pursue Your love to be poured out on these precious families. Bring peace, strength and comfort as they hold on for a good report from You and the best medical endeavors guided by Your wisdom and ever so gentle hands.
Whisper a word of encouragement to each of these dear people so they have HOPE in You to continue to endure under these trials. Fill them with Your divine power! We know that You love each one and as our dear Father You will rescue us.
Thank You Most Holy One for what You are doing in our midst as we declare that You are in control.
So we give these burdens to You, and ask that You carry Your children through these difficult and heavy health issues. Just one touch from You... breathe on them
in Jesus' name...

Heavenly Father, it's me again. I just want to lift up all of the people who have asked for prayer. You already know who they are and what they need and I believe you are taking care of each one.

There is one addition, Joanna, who has asked for financial help. Father, you are the God who sees, and knows this lady's need and I just ask in the name of your Son, Jesus, that you will supply her need whatever it may be according to thy Holy will. You are a loving and gracious Father who loves His children more than we will ever know until we get to Heaven. Thank you for all you are doing to help those who are sick and this last one. Praise Your holy name for all that You are doing. You deserve all the glory, and praise for the answers to our prayers. I love you so much.

From the Heart said...

Father, I know You have heard the prayer that I just accidently deleted. Emma has been re-intubated and I know You are taking care of her and all the others listed here at The Lighthouse of Prayer. I look forward to hearing good reports from them all in the name of Jesus.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of Your Son, Jesus asking you to answer the prayers that have been listed above. You know who they are and what they need. One new one has been added and I left a prayer for her at her blog. These people are so precious to you and need your help and I just ask that you would provide healing to those who need it and supply finances where needed. I do feel an emptiness in my heart for Emma but know that she is with You and she now has a perfect body. I do ask that You give peace to her parents. Thank you, Father, for always being available to us when we come to you with needs of people who sign up for prayer.

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.
