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.

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

Continuing today with Part 4 of PRAYING GOD'S WORD for "Overcoming Feelings of Guilt" from Beth Moore's Chapter 9... "Overcoming Ongoing Feelings of Guilt" (red= Beth's words)

"My faithful God, sorrow has led me to repentance. I pray that I have become sorrowful as You intended and was helped rather than hurt by the confrontation of my sin. Thank You for the godly sorrow that brings repentance leading to salvation and leaving no regret." (2 Corinthians 7:9-10)

Now let us write our own prayer by choosing one of the following scripture(s) from the letters to Timothy:

1 Timothy 1:12-14
1 Timothy 1:15-17
2 Timothy 1:12
2 Timothy 2:13
2 Timothy 2:25-26

My Father and God Most High, Help me to flee all evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace along with those who call on You, Lord, out of a pure heart. Keep me from quarrels from stupid and foolish arguments, as Your servant, I must be kind to all, able to teach and not resentful. Thank You for granting me repentance leading me to a knowledge of the truth. Thank You for causing me to come to my senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who had taken me captive to do his will. Thank You for providing a way of escape. (2 Timothy 2: 22-26)

Be sure to share a scripture-prayer in the "Prayers Lifted to God's Throne"... thanks!

1 Timothy 1:12-13

12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service. 13 Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief.

1 Timothy 1:15-17

15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. 16 But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example

2 Timothy 1:12 (NIV84)
12 That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet I am not ashamed, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day

2 Timothy 2:13 (NIV84)
13 if we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself.

2 Timothy 2:25–26 (NIV84)
25 Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will

Heavenly Father...You know Your word is dear to my heart...and that Your servant Paul's words to Timothy are so very special to me...

I thank you, Lord, that through Your love and mercy, You have made way for me to KNOW You...not merely to know OF You or ABOUT You...but to really KNOW YOU...I am in awe of Your wonder and glory...

You are so faithful, God, and while everything and everyone may fail...You never will...all my trust and hope are in You...

Father, I entrust my heart, soul, and mind to You, as I anxiously wait to see You face to face...I entrust the lives of my lost family members...that You would protect them until that moment when their eyes and hearts are opened to You...and they proclaim...WE KNOW WHOM WE HAVE BELIEVED...

Praise Your sweet name, Jesus...all glory and honor is Yours....

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.
