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.

PRAYERS for OVERCOMING GUILT FEELINGS ~ 5




"PRAYING GOD'S WORD" Prayers for Overcoming Ongoing Guilt Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 


lead us up to today's 5th part of PRAYERS for "Overcoming Feelings of Guilt" from Beth Moore's Chapter 9 of PRAYING GOD'S WORD. (red= Beth'swords/prayers)


Today's scripture-prayers are taken from the book of Romans. 


"O God, never let me show contempt for the riches of Your kindness, tolerance, and patience, not realizing that Your kindness leads me toward repentance." (Romans 2:4)


"Lord, apart from You, there is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks You, God. All have turned away. We have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one. (Romans 3:10-12) God, the righteousness that comes from You comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of You, God, and are justified freely by Your grace through the redemption that came by Your Son, Christ Jesus. (Romans 3:22-23) Help me accept that Your gift of grace has never and will never be relegated by my ability to be good and righteous. Freedom from the burden of my own sin accompanies true repentance and acceptance that Your Son's death fully pardoned me. "


Let us pause and reflect on Our precious Saviour Jesus Christ and His Crucifixion for us, our sins that separate us from God. Confess any sins and feel His forgiveness pour over you.


Now, it's your turn to PRAY GOD'S WORD from these scriptures in Romans.


Romans 3:10-12
Romans 4:7-8
Romans 8: 31;33;34;37


I hope that taking this week to practice "PRAYING GOD'S WORD" has been helpful to encourage you to continue turning God's Word into your prayers and also if you struggled with ongoing feelings of guilt that you can now be confident that if we are in Christ, we are not hopeless and if we realize we've never developed godly sorrow over certain sin, that this week we ask God to help us with this and He has and will do it, because He is faithful to His promises.


If we have repented of sin and yet guilt keeps assailing us, let's start refusing the accuser's attacks and fight back with God's Word through our prayers. He died to set us free, so let us lay that ongoing feeling of guilt at the cross this day and not take it back with us or allow the enemy to remind us of what is already forgiven, once we ask for God's forgiveness, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness... so IT IS FINISHED this day.
We are overcomers and the door has been opened to set us FREE! 


"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
John 8:31

"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." Galatians 5:1

It's Friday but Sunday's coming! 
Have a BLESSED RESURRECTION DAY!

Romans 3:10–12 (NIV84)
10 As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one; 11 there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. 12 All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.”

Romans 4:7–8 (NIV84)
7 “Blessed are they whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. 8 Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will never count against him.”

Romans 8:31 (NIV84)
31 What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Romans 8:33 (NIV84)
33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies.

Romans 8:34 (NIV84)
34 Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.

Romans 8:37 (NIV84)
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

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.
