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.

POWER of PRAYING

Taken from Stormie's "God's Connection with us" from this book
The Power of Praying® Through the Bible

Read and Consider: Genesis 1:26-27
Genesis 1:26 (108 kb)

Lord, I thank You for the breath of life You have given me. I pray You will breathe new life into me today. Just as You spoke and brought about life in this magnificent world, help me to speak words that bring life into my own small world as well. How grateful I am to be closely connected to You in every way. ~ Stormie Omartian, The Power of Praying Through The Bible


Genesis 1:27 (55 kb)

from DAILY PRAYER 4/25
Prayer for Friends

I thank my God always for my friends -- for the grace of God which was given to you by Christ Jesus, that you might be enriched in everything by Him in all utterance and all knowledge, even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will confirm you to the end that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen
Scripture Reading: 1 Corinthians 1:4-9

The daily prayer is written by Germaine Copeland, author of the Prayers That Avail Much family book series.

I Believe (A Confession of Faith) Part 5

I believe in redemption:

In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace. Ephesians 1:8 KJV

I believe Jesus is my redeemer and He has redeemed me through His shed blood. His redemption means that He has bought me at a great price, the highest price that could be paid for my ransom. I believe that His ransom means that I am no longer in bondage to Satan, stuck in a horrible pit of despair, or a slave to sin.

I believe that my redemption means that I am longer my own, and that my purpose is to serve Jesus and glorify Him, not unwillingly, but from the heart, as His bondservant. I count it a privilege to serve Him for love’s sake.

I believe His ownership of my life brings me great comfort, deep peace, and overflowing joy. His ownership means that I am in His hands, in His care, in His keeping. I believe as my redeemer that He has taken full responsibility for my life because He has purchased it and I have wholly given it into His hands. I believe the hands of my Redeemer are strong hands, creative hands, caring hands, giving hands, healing hands, keeping hands. I rejoice that my life is in His hands— to do His will, to follow His plans, to gladden His heart, to bless His name.

Lord Jesus,

You are my Redeemer!

I am redeemed!

I am redeemed through Your sacrificial blood!

I thank You for the forgiveness of sins. I am so thankful for the riches of Your grace.

I am no longer in bondage to satan, stuck in a horrible pit of despair or a slave to sin. Hallelujah!

Praise to You, I am no longer my own and my purpose is to serve You and glorify You from my heart. I count it a privilege to serve You for love's sake.

Thank You for the great comfort, deep peace and overflowing Joy You bring my life. I'm so grateful that I am in Your hands, in Your care, in Your keeping.

I rejoice that my life is in Your hands, strong hands, creative hands, capable hands, caring hands, giving hands, healing hands, keeping hands... to help me do Your will, follow Your plans and gladden Your heart as I bless Your Holy Name.

A REDEEMED DAUGHTER

Scripture from Germaine Copeland's Daily Prayer:

1 Corinthians 1:4–9 (NIV84)
4 I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. 5 For in him you have been enriched in every way—in all your speaking and in all your knowledge— 6 because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you. 7 Therefore you do not lack any spiritual ...

Yes, Lord...I always thank God for You and also my family in Christ!
I thank You for Your amazing grace!

In You, O Lord, I have been enriched in every way! My speaking is enriched! All my knowledge is enriched because our testimony about Christ is confirmed!

Thank You Jesus, that in You, I lack nothing.

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.
