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.

DAY 2: FRIDAY, 3 June 2011

REVEAL! …sanctify Your name…

Father, Son and Holy Spirit, You are the High and Lofty One who inhabits eternity, and your Name is holy.

You revealed your Fatherhood to us, through Jesus Christ, who is exalted, and at His Name every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

We call upon this name for salvation.

Your Name has been profaned among the nations and many people have forgotten your Name and have stretched out their hands to other gods.

Please forgive us, and sanctify your Name so that all nations, even your adversaries, shall know that You are Lord and fear your Name.

Unite my heart to fear your Name so that I will depart from iniquity and will hold fast to your Name and not deny You.

With all those who know your Name, we put our trust in You and wait on your Name.

May your Word be translated and made available for every person on this earth to hear your Word and your Name proclaimed in their own language.

Blessed be Your Name, and let the whole earth be filled with your glory!

From the rising of the sun, to its going down, your Name shall be great and in your Name the nations will trust!

DAY 3: SATURDAY, 4 June 2011

RULE! …May your kingdom come…

Lord Jesus Christ, You are the King of the Universe.

The sceptre of your Kingdom is a sceptre of righteousness.

Of the increase of your government and peace there will be no end.

From all the nations we will speak of the glory of your Kingdom and talk of your power, to make known to the sons of men your mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of your Kingdom.

We pray that many more people will hear the Word of the Gospel of the Kingdom so that there will be a great harvest of souls in our generation.

Let the hearing of your Word bring faith to many hearts.

Help us, who profess to be followers of Christ, to walk in the fullness of your Spirit and live in the likeness of Christ so that your kingdom will be seen in our lives.

As we bow before you in brokenness, come and soften our hearts, so that through the Church the Lordship of Jesus Christ will influence every part of our cities and societies.

We join with every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them to sing:

“To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb, be praise and honour and glory and power, forever and ever!”

Wisdom and power belong to You. You change times and seasons.

You set up kings and depose them.

You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.

You reveal deep and hidden things.

PROVIDE! …Give us this day our daily bread…

Father God, You are YHVH Yireh, the LORD our Provider.

You made a way for us to be reconciled to You through your Son, Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God who is the only sacrifice we will ever need.

You are the Giver of all good things and those who come to you lack nothing.

Jesus promised that when we ask in his name, You will answer our prayer.

So we ask, please provide in our daily needs.

Enable us through the Holy Spirit to become agents of healing and change in our world. Use us to break patterns of poverty in our communities through our sacrificial giving and sharing.

Have mercy on the poor, the sick, those who are refugees and the children of this world, and provide in their need for food, water and basic health care.

Awaken the hearts of the Church to the spiritual hunger of those who have never heard about You.

To You, our God, belong mercy and forgiveness, for You are merciful and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.

You forgive iniquity, transgression and sin.

The blood of your Son, Jesus Christ, has been poured out for the forgiveness of sin, and through his blood we are cleansed from all our iniquities.

Let the blood of Jesus speak on our behalf at the throne of grace.

Forgive us for our sinful ways.

May the blood of Jesus sanctify us and cleanse our conscience from acts that lead to death.

Empower us through the Holy Spirit to break the hold of sin over our lives, so that we will abandon patterns of sin and find grace to renounce any allegiance to the powers of darkness.

Let your Holy Spirit move on the hearts of men and women to convict them of sin and bring them to repentance through godly sorrow.

Soften our hearts to see how lives are destroyed through sins that bring about war, poverty
and injustice.

Give us a new spirit and a new heart to obey your commands and bring joy to your heart.

Thank You for your patience towards us and for your desire that all people will come to

As Christians from around the world, we enter into your presence through the new and
living way that Jesus Christ opened for us by his blood, to kneel at the throne of grace.
We pray that you will revive the Church again through your Holy Spirit.
Answer the prayer of Jesus that we, as Church, will unite and stand as one family

Father God, through the blood of your Son, Jesus Christ, You have reconciled us to You, so that we may have eternal life and unbroken fellowship with You.

Through the ministry of Jesus Christ, the Prince of peace, You have also given us the ministry of reconciliation, to bring the message of forgiveness and reconciliation to all peoples.

In the name of Jesus, we have the authority and the command to forgive sins.
We confess that we have allowed bitterness and resentment to fester in our hearts.

Please forgive us.

We now forgive those who have sinned against us.

Break the cycle of resentment, revenge and racism so that relationships can be restored.

You and to be your disciples.

Your word is a lamp for our feet and light for our paths.

Lead us on paths of righteousness for your name’s sake.

Fill us with such love and zeal for You that we will not be moved by the temptations of materialism, power and sexual perversion.

DAY 9: FRIDAY, 10 June 2011

OVERCOME! …but deliver us from evil…

Lord Jesus Christ, we confess and declare that You died on the cross, rose from the dead on the third day and ascended to heaven where You are now seated at the right hand of our heavenly Father.

You were given all authority in heaven and on earth, and the name above all names, so that at the name of Jesus Christ every knee will bow and every tongue confess that

You are Lord.

You broke the power of Satan and of death and disarmed all principalities and powers through your death and resurrection.

Let the revelation of the truth of the Gospel liberate many people from the power of Satan to follow Christ.

Break the hold of satanic powers and deliver people from idolatry, witchcraft, demonic oppression, depression and the stronghold of lies in destructive ideologies and religions.

Break the powers of darkness which corrupt businesses, governments and cities.

Deliver us from the fear of death and the fear of man, and give us boldness in preaching the Gospel with courage and perseverance.

Give us the wisdom to tear down the strongholds and arguments that were raised up against the knowledge of God.

We surrender ourselves into your hand.

Use us as instruments of righteousness to overcome evil through the blood of the Lamb, through our testimonies and through our willingness to suffer for your name’s sake.

GLORIFY! …for Yours is the kingdom,
and the power,and the glory forever.

Great and marvellous are Your works, LORD God Almighty! Righteous and true are Your ways, O King of the nations!

Who shall not fear You, O LORD, and glory Your Name?

Because You alone are kind. All nations shall come and worship before You, for Your
righteousness have been revealed.

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours.

Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

May your glory and power be revealed through the humility, compassion and holiness of the
Church, to all nations.

Manifest your kingdom again through signs and miracles until all nations kneel and worship
at the name of Jesus.

The glory of the LORD will fill the earth as the waters cover the seas.
From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of Jesus Christ will be glorified.

Now unto You, the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty,
dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever.

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.
