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.

SEPTEMBER PRAYER REQUESTS

PRAYER REQUESTS
"Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly brokenEcclesiastes 4:12

This is meant to be an interactive blog based on a comment and response systemThat's where YOU come in and we need YOU to help the Lighthouse of Prayer work effectively by joining us in sharing your prayer requests or other's you encounter AND then by leaving a prayer for them.
WE REALLY NEED YOU !
This blog ONLY works if we all JOIN together in prayer and sharing.

PLEASE WRITE YOUR PRAYER, PRAYER REQUEST, PRAISE,THANKS in the place that would normally read comments, here it will read "PRAYERS LIFTED TO THE THRONE of GOD" or just add your request, if there's a LINKY PRAYER REQUEST available.


We'd love to see your Prayer requests (Petitions) in what normally would be the Comment area, where others will be supporting you through their prayers hopefully, written as a response to your petition there. We'd like this to be a community of prayer, praying for one another.

We are encouraging you ALL to pray whenever you read a need of someone, so please respond here with a prayer also. You need not be a team member to leave a prayer for someone or bring a prayer need here. We all can lift up a prayer for each person and encourage someone, help to carry another's burden, stand with them and bless them. 
All prayers are welcome.


The Linky asks for a blog link (BUT you need not fill that in if you don't have a blog or the person that you are requesting prayers for does not).The intention of this, is so the people will go "visit" the person to encourage them or find out more about the situation. Thanks for sharing people that you find need prayer. THANK YOU FOR PRAYING FOR ONE ANOTHER!

My precious Heavenly Father, I come to You this morning asking for total healing of the cancer in my SIL's body. The doctor was unable to remove everything, but Father, You are the Great Physician and can do what man cannot do - heal her completely in the name of Jesus. You are our Healer and our Provider and Your Son said ask anything in His name and You would do it. That is what I'm asking today, total healing in the name of Your Son, Jesus, for it is written that in Your Word that "by His stripes we(she)is healed.

I thank you and praise Your name for sparing the life of our niece. She has a lot wrong with her but I'm believing You are healing her completely in the name of Jesus. I give you highest praise and adoration for what You have already done and for what You will do. Praise Your Holy name.

Peggy said...

Glorious Heavenly Father, I come and stand together in agreement with my precious sister Alice for her SIL and niece! I am so thankful for the miracles that You have already done and because we agree in Your Word that says when any two or more gather in Your Name that You are with us and will do whatever we ask according to Your Will. We praise You first and foremost and exalt Your Name and power. It is in this authority we have in Jesus Christ that we can come as One and pray for complete healing for both of these women who need Your touch of grace, mercy and miraculous healing. Indeed as Alice prayed what may not be possible with man or even the best physician is more than possible with You, their Great Physician and Healer.
Even cancer must bow to Your name.
Even any traumatic body injury from a car wreck must bow to You. nothing is too difficult. You are Lord! You are God! You have the power and strength to move mountains. Our faith is asking for You to move any mountain and cause
a miraculous healing for Alice's SIL and also this mother, their niece. Be with this family. Show Yourself Mighty to bring healing, restore, strengthen, bring peace and comfort, give wisdom to all medical staff involved...and we will give You all the glory, honor and praise. We believe Your Promises in Your Word! We believe You and in You! Nothing is too difficult.

Father, You know the circumstances far better than we do and yet we desire that You move with all Your power over this family and their dearly loved ones. We ask that You continue to move in their lives and in their medical needs right now in Jesus name. We ask for a rich anointing to flow through our dear sisters and cause what is not right to be made whole and well. We plead the blood of Jesus over both of these precious women. We ask that You embrace them in their suffering and pain and help them carry this burden to Your glory. Greater are You that is in them than anything of this world. Meet each one right where they are and provide for them as ONLY You can. We thank You for every step so far that You have been with them. Guide the hands that care and decide for them. Be with them and send encouragement and comfort. We declare that You
have gone before them to make any crooked path straight, so we ask for a great outpouring of Your love for them and Your mercy to give them the grace and peace they need for each day as You bring about a beautiful miracle and victory. We thank You! We love You. We exalt You and the precious Name of Jesus.
We hold on to the cross and plead the blood to flow through their bodies causing changes that can only come from Your healing hands of love. They are truly loved and needed by their families so with this we know You love them even more and are willing to do even more than we can imagine, because Jesus took up their infirmities and carried their diseases and injuries. He won victory over this.
We thank You, Lord! We thank You for life rather than death. We thank You for successful surgery.
We ask that You complete the good work that has already been started.
We consider this done in Your precious Name and give You all the thanks and praise. To God be the glory now and forever. We are Yours and they are Yours... so we wait...

From the Heart said...

Father God, You are so wonderful and loving. I just come here to thank You for what You are doing in our niece's body. She has been up and walking (with broken bones in her pelvis), sitting and all because of Your healing touch. She looked so much better when we visited her yesterday. To YOU, Father God, and Your Son I say thank You. You desire all the honor, glory and praise for what You have and are doing in her life.

I thank You for all You are doing in my SIL's life. She was to go home yesterday and for that we owe You all the praise. The dr. may not have been able to remove all the cancer but once again I ask and believe that You can do what the drs. can't in the name of Your Son, Jesus. I just praise You, worship You, honor You, and glorify You for all that You are doing. I love You so much, praise Your Holy Name.

I pray also for Denise that You will heal her body in the name of Jesus. Amen.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, our Creator, ruler of our universe, our healer, our provider, thank You for all You have done in our niece's life. I ask that You be with her during her rehab for the next 3 weeks, that You will guide each person who will be helping her to return her to the person You created her to be. You are so wonderful, mighty to be praised, lover of my soul. Thank You for touching my husband and helping him to sing again. What a glorious blessing that was last night to hear him singing without any problems at all. You have been so faithful to our family and for that I give you praise, honor and glory.

Thank you for what you are doing in Denise's life. I just believe You have Your hands on her and are restoring all of her body functions in the name of your Son, Jesus.

Thank you for allowing us to live in America. I know it must break Your heart to hear what some people are trying to do in our country, but I know that You are in control and will take care of Your children. God pleae bless America.

Thank you Father for healing Bernice and bringing her back to her family and to blogging.

From the Heart said...

Gracious, loving, Heavenly Father, you are so wonderful to all of us and I just thank you for the prayers that you have answered in my family and some of the request here.

Father, I just lift up Denise to You in the name of Your Son, Jesus, and ask that You would do a miracle in her life and heal her body from the top of her head to the bottom of her feet. You, alone know exactly what she needs and I come boldly before You asking that all the prayers that have been prayed for her will be answered and that You will make her whole again. Just let her feel Your loving arms holding her and loving her. She is precious in Your sight and we love her and want her back with us. Maybe that's being selfish but You said ask anything in the name of Your Son who died on the cross for our salvation and shed His blood for our healing. Thank you for giving me the privilege to come here and pray for Denise and others who need Your help. Your will be done in all our lives and I just thank You for all you have done and are going to do in the name of Jesus. I give you praise, honor and glory for You are worthy to be praised. Amen.

Praying for Katie said...

#5 KATIE

Please pray from victory and not defeat! Katie is EXTREMELY confident in the hands that hold her. Jesus is the ultimate trump card and His blood is enough. He can and will provide EVERYTHING she needs through this process. Pray the Word and guard your heart, thoughts, and speech from partnering with fear, doubt, and death. Pray for the doctors, the hospital staff, Katie’s entire family and surrounding friends to have wisdom from heaven and stand in HOPE on Katie’s behalf. We get to lift our voice to a living God that hears and is passionate about His Katie! You are partnering with HIM when you pray! – (Taken from “Praying for Katie“. I couldn’t have said it any better!

Father God, before Katie or any of her friends called out to You, You already knew that she would need a healing (Isaiah 65:24). You already had her in Your loving arms so as the previous prayer says, I am partnering with You, Father for Katie's healing and give You thanks for what You are doing in her life. You are the Healer, the Provider, an all knowing, loving God Who has all of our names, including Katie, written in the palm of Your hand.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, once again we come to you on behalf the sister of my daughter's friend who has been diagnosed with cancer. We know, Father, that you love Kathy as much or more than her family. I ask that you let her feel that love flowing through her heart and body and believing that you wil heal her in the name of Jesus. I come against the enemy now and tell him to flee from these two precious people who are your children. I thank you for what You are doing for these two ladies who need your loving, healing touch in the name of Jesus. Bless my daughter and give her wisdom as she is being a friend to her friend and maybe going with her to see her sister. Place an anointing up my daughter and her friend as they are praying for and with her in the name of Jesus. I give you honor and praise for all that you are doing to help and heal these ladies. I love you so much and appreciate the privilege to come here and pray for those who are in need.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, wonderful Savior, Comforter, I bless your name this morning. You are the life, the truth, the way for Denise, Bernice, Katie, Sara, Amy and Kathy, my SIL and niece. I bless Your name and ask that You break the chains of sickness, cancer, and disease of any kind that these precious ladies are experiencing. I bless Your name Father, in the name of your Son, Jesus for breaking these chains around these precious children of yours. I bless Your name, I bless Your name. Jesus, you are the life, the way, the truth for all of us and from the bottom of my heart, I bless Your name, I bless Your name. Praise God, you are worthy of all our praise and I give You all the glory and honor this day for blessing all listed here at The Lighthouse. I bless Your name, I bless Your name and thank You for the answers to all the prayers that have been sent to You in the lovely name of Jesus, Your Son.

Peggy (mazmagi) said...

Ohhh yes Heavenly Father, We bless Your Holy name! The Name above all other names. Holy is Your Name. Great is Your name!

I join my dear sister in one accord to bless and give You all glory, honor and praise. I bless Your precious Name Jesus! I thank You for breaking these chains. I thank You for the power in Your Name. I thank You for the power in Your precious blood. And we plead the blood over each one of these precious daughters of Yours:
Denise, Bernice, Katie, Sara, Amy (for her dad & mom), Kathy, Alice's SIL and niece.

Nothing is too difficult for You!

Thank You for the peacefulness that You are giving to Sara, may each of us Choose JOY as she has so willingly and leave this world with the abundant JOY and blessed attitude that she has shown us... as she surrenders completely to You.

Give comfort to ALL!

May each be filled with Your peace and strength!

You are enough! Your JOY does give us strength and peace each day. We ask that You be present in each of these precious one's lives and in their families and friends.

Lord Jesus, You gave Your life so that we may live! Thank You, Lord!
We hope for miracles but trust You that You have the plan in Your hands. Every detail has already been taken care of by You. We lay each burden down of these dear ones. If we love them, how much more You love them. We pray and release them to You, asking all these things according to Your Will. That You who began a good work in each one, will complete the good work. You are Mighty and we bow to Your Holy name and bless Your name... sweet Jesus!

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit! We humbly bless Your Name and the power of Your name... as we pray in Your name... Lord Jesus! Thank You!

From the Heart said...

Father, I come to you tonight in the name of your Son, Jesus asking for healing of Denise, Katie, Sara, Amy's dad, and Kathy(my daughter's friend). You know each of their needs and I just thank you for all that You are doing on behalf of these dear people. I pray that my SIL got a good report from her doctor today. You are the all knowing provider for each of these precious people and I just give You praise for all that You are doing in their lives. May they each feel the presence of the sweet Holy Spirit and Your loving arms around them as you carry them through the dark times and into the light. I just bless Your Name, Father, for You are wonderful, counselor, healer, everything that these people need comes from You in the precious name of Jesus.

Peggy said...

Heavenly Father, Thank You for Alice and her prayer for everyone... I stand in agreement with her.

I come to You, as our Protector. I thank You that You are in control.
I thank You for sending Hurricane Hilary back out to sea. I pray a wall of protection for the coastal area and that this tropical storm will not increase as predicted but decrease in power. It is near Acapulco but You are much nearer to them. I thank You for the safety for the fishermen and the many who may be affected by this season of rain, tropical storms and hurricanes. You are more powerful!
They say that Hilary is strengthening but You are our strength, may this cause many to fall on their knees and come to You. For You can bring good from so much bad.

And just as these storms bring problems, so does the storms the people are facing above have in their lives. Calm the storms, Lord.
Bring peace and comfort in the 'storm.' Increase Your love and concern for the many needs represented here, surround them as Alice prayed with Your protective arms of love and grace. May they sense all the prayers for them and gain strength in You to fight the good fight and run their race. We lay their burdens at Your feet, and ask that Your will be done, but we hope for a Mighty Healing. You are their Healer! You are the Great Physician! Bring Your wisdom to the medical people and continue to open doors to provide in all the needs from finances, insurance coverage,
physical, pain and suffering, emotional whatever it may be You know already. Be with each one in Your power and be glorified as we ask all of this in the beloved name of Jesus... We thank You. We love You and we declare that You reign in us and over us as we plead for Your mercy, grace and most needed help. We believe You and we believe in You and declare that these "storms" like mountains be moved.

From the Heart said...

Father, I agree with Peggy's prayers and ask that you protect those who are in harm's way of the hurricane Hiliary. As she said You have the power to stop the storm and do what man cannot do. We give You praise for all that You are doing in the midst of this storms and any that may follow.

I ask for continued blessings upon all who are listed here who need healing desperately. You are the healer and I know that You love them very much and don't want any of Your children to suffer. Thy will be done. I thank you for the progress our niece has had and I know You deserve all the blessing and thanks for helping her so that she is able to go home earlier than planned. You deserve all the praise, honor and glory. I love You so very much and want more than anything to do Your will.

Peggy (mazmagi) said...

Dear God, Thank you for sending special people into our lives. I can think of a very few who have meant so much to me and been such an encouragement and inspiration. I appreciate them so much...and miss the ones who have left this earth to be with You in eternity. Thank you, God, for the Holy Spirit, the Great Comforter who fills my heart, lifts my spirit, satisfies my soul, and brings your presence into my life. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.

From the Heart said...

Thank you Father for what You have done in Denise's life. She is back home and sounds like she is doing so much better. For that we owe You all the thanks, glory, and honor for touching her. We just ask that You continue to heal her and make her completely whole in the name of Jesus. Wonderful Father, Son and Holy Spirit I just worship you and praise you for all you have done in Denise's life and our niece who will be going home tomorrow. I just bless Your name Father, bless You name for all You healing power and love that You have shown all that are listed here. I pray that you give Sara's family the comfort they need but she is in the arms of Jesus now and one day they will see her again. Bless Your name precious Lord, bless your name. Amen.

Denise said...

I am lifting all of these prayer needs up before the throne. Thanks to all those who have been praying for me.

From the Heart said...

Father, I come to You once again on behalf of Denise. Thank You for all the good things You have done in her life. You already know what she needs and I just ask that You would block all of the little and big strokes from her body in the name of Jesus. Let her feel your loving arms holding her every so tightly and loving her and may she feel the healing power as it flows through her body from the top of her head to the bottom of her feet in the name of Your Son, Jesus, who bore the stripes on His back for all of us and especially the ones He bore for Denise. I say to the enemy that he take his hands off her now in the name of Jesus and flee. Denise is covered by the blood of Jesus and he has no authority over her. Thank you Father, thank you Jesus. I just bless your name, I bless your name for all You are doing. Praise Your holy, righteous name. 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.
