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.

PRAYER CHALLENGE DAY 40

PLEASE PRAY FOR EMMA GRACE'S FAMILY! Emma went home with Jesus on Good Friday!
Heather, Mark and her brother and sister and family need your prayers, "Especially Heather"
 
CHALLENGE TAKEN from the pdf mentioned back here
Suggestion for today from there:

Day 40:  You have made it.  So with this last challenge I ask you to reflect on these words from Ephesians 3: 14 – 21 and pray a prayer of gratitude.  Then start the challenge again. 

Ephesians 3:14-21
     14     For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,
     15     from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name,
     16     that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man,
     17     so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
     18     may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
     19     and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.
     20     Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us,
     21     to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.

DAILY PRAYER from Germaine Copeland author of "Prayers that Avail Much"


Prayers That Avail Much: 25th Anniversary Commemorative Gift Edition (Prayers That Avail Much) (Prayers That Avail Much)

A Lifetime of Love
Today we celebrate my husband's birthday with joy and much thanksgiving. As far back as we can remember the men in my husband's family died prematurely, and when our children were young I had a fear that this would be passed down to him. The Holy Spirit prompted me to pray for him from Ephesians 6. I began to thank God for my husband who always honored his mother and dad. The Word said that he would live long on the earth and it would be well with him;I chose to believe this promise. He is a man of few words, but his family can count on him to be there for them, and he is always willing to help others. Praise God! The curse of premature death has been broken in his generation. He was the first male to reach his 60th birthday, and he is now enjoying his seventies. On this day each year we celebrate his life that is dedicated to God and his family. ~ Germaine Copeland

PRAYER:
Father, thank You for the Holy Spirit who helps me pray when I don't know how or what to pray for. I affectionately and gratefully praise Your name, thanking You for answered prayer. The Holy Spirit helps me love without hypocrisy. I abhor what is evil, and cling to what is good. I will be kindly affectionate to others with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to others, not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord. I rejoice in hope, patient in tribulation, and will continue steadfast in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality. Thank You for sending the Holy Spirit who takes hold together with me against my weaknesses. Amen.

Scripture Reading: Romans 12:9-13
The daily prayer is written by Germaine Copeland, author of the Prayers That Avail Much family book series.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Today I come to you with one request on this Easter Eve. I pray for the unbeliever who will be attending church with me tomorrow. Lord, I know how much You love this person - far more than I do. I ask that You will speak to his heart. That You will not let him be distracted. That he will not look at the surface of things, but that his heart will be open to the words spoken. Lord, speak to him - please.

Please bless our day tomorrow - as we celebrate the wondrous power that raised Jesus from the dead - that raised Him as a conquerer over sin, and death, and our hateful enemy. Thank you, Lord, that we are also conquerers through the power at work within us.

Now, Lord - we trust that YOU are able.

Thank you for loving us so much.

In the precious name of our wonderful Redeemer, Jesus.

Amen.

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.
