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.

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.
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!

Father, I lift up Denise to You and ask that You heal her body in the name of Jesus, Your Son. You have done so much for her already and I'm believing that You will put a stop to the attacks she is having by the enemy, in the name of Jesus.

Once again I lift up Marsha's family to you and ask that You lift up a standard against the enemy for all that is happening and that You will restore health to those family members who need it and restore the things that have been stolen from her daughter in the name of Jesus. I praise You, I bless Your Name, the Name above all names. You are Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God and I just honor You for the love You are showing to all in need. Praise Your holy name for You are worthy to the praised.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, I lift Alice, Peggy, and so many others that have been praying on my behalf. May You please bless them, as they have truly blessed me. I also lift my sister Vickie, my brother Jim, my dad, my uncle Ralph, and my stepmothers dad up before Your throne. Father, You know their health needs, and I believe You will heal them all, as only You can. Thank You for all You have done for me. I am eternaly grateful. I love You beyond measure. Amen

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I come to you tonight praising You for all the blessings you have bestowed upon our family and the things you have done for Denise. I just ask that You continue to heal her body completely in the name of Jesus.

I also life up my cousin's son to You and ask that You would heal his body and supply all of his needs for his dear family. May they all feel Your loving arms around them in the days ahead. You are the healer, the provider, the for all that is needed and for what You are going to do I give You praise, honor and glory in the precious name of Your Son, Jesus, who gave His life that we might have eternal life and bore stripes for our healing.

I ask for continued healing in my SIL's life, Father. You know exactly what she needs and only by Your touch can she be made whole again. I ask for healing of my husband's eyes in the name of Jesus and Father I just bless Your name for all that You are and will be doing in the lives of those mentioned. I love You with all of my heart and give You all the praise for You alone are worthy to be praised. Bless Your holy name Father.

Dear heavenly Father, I come to You tonight asking that you truly bless all of those in Alice's family that are in need of our prayers. Also, please bless Alice as she blesses others. She is such a precious prayer warrior, and she loves you dearly. Thank You Father for Your constant care of me, I love You with all I have. Amen

Denise said...

Dear heavenly Father, please be with the Crabtree family today. Kathy Crabtree, who was only 55 passed away from a stroke this week. She leaves behind a husband of 30 years, and two adult daughters. Her funeral is tomorrow. Please surround her family, and friends with peace, love, and strength. Amen

Father, I thank You so much for all the prayers you have answered.
I lift up the Crabtree family to You and ask that you surrounded them with peace, love, and your loving arms around them for You are the One who knows what they need.

Thank you for blessing my cousin's son and supplying his every need.

I pray you will continue to heal his body and that he will not be attacked by the enmey again in the name of Jesus.

Bless Your name, Father, bless Your name for all the prayers You have answered through the Lighthouse of Prayer.

Denise said...

Dear heavenly Father, I lift up before Your throne this morning all lost souls. May all of those lost in the world without You as their Saviour, fall on their knees, and cry out to You. May they open their hearts wide, and allow You entrance into their lives. I hurt for all lost souls, they truly need You. Open their eyes Lord. Amen

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I agree with Denise regarding those in this world who do not know Jesus as their risen Savior. I pray you will open their eyes to the plan of salvation through Your precious Son, Jesus, who gave His life on the cross that we might have eternal life and healing for our bodies. I pray especially for mine and my dh extended families who don't know you. Some know they need to be saved but are too caught up in the things of this world that is keeping them from making a commitment to you. There are two that are especially dear to my heart and I boldly ask You Father to reach out to them as You did Saul on the road to Damascus. I know that all things are possibe with you Father, praise Your holy name and I thank you for what You are doing to bring these lost sheep into Your fold.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I come to you this morning with a thankful heart for all the things you have brought me through and the help you are giving my dh.

I continue to ask for Denise's healing, my cousin's son and my SIL who has cancer. You are the healer and I just put them in Your hands and ask that You meet their every need and heal their bodies.

I also lift up Brittany who has severe scoliosis. You alone can heal her instantly and I pray that You will in the name of Your Son, Jesus. I give You all the praise, honor and glory for the many prayers You have answered here at The Lighthouse. I bless Your name, Father, I bless Your name and give You thanks for all You are doing and will do in the future. I'm so glad for the privilege of calling You, My Father, my healer, my provider and Your Son who gave His life that we might have eternal life and healing for our bodies.

Thank You for being with Peggy during her recent journey and my daughter who is enjoying touring Italy (a beautiful place I'm sure that You spoke into existance). I thank you in advance for keeping her safe and bringing her and her friend back home safely this Sunday. I love You Lord with all of my heart. Your child, AE

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I come to You this morning with a humble heart asking for a healing of whatever is going on in Peggy's body. She has been such a faithful servant of yours and so very loving and kind to all of us here in blogland. You are the only one who knows exactly what needs to be done and I ask that You would give her favor and heal her in the name of Jesus.

Peggy said...

Father God, I give You thanks and praise because You are my Healer!

You are Alice's and Denise's Healer!

Our lives are in Your hands! You are Great and greatly to be praised. Your hands are more than capable. You are more than enough! Your Grace is sufficient.

Hear the cries for help as You did mine and the needs of my sisters and brothers in Christ. Deliver us from all evil. Continue to use and shine Your Light through us.

Thank You for Alice's prayers here and in her home!

Thank You for my other friends and sisters in Christ. You know each one by name and their particular circumstance. You hear or see them! You are the Great El Roi! You are Almighty! I ask all that I pray this day in the Name of Your Precious Son Jesus and according to Your will that it be done. We give You all glory, honor and praise as You work in us. May we be vessels
and instruments surrendered to You.
Give us Your wisdom, discipline and lead us each day. Thank You! I love You! I love those whom You have sent to cross my path and lift each one before You today... Be with us! Be glorified in us!

I thank You that as I improve, Your strength is made perfect in my weakness. Heal me from all bacteria that is causing harm and continue to keep me safe in Jesus Name. I plead the blood of Jesus and yet confidently I consider it done according to Your Will and Name of Jesus!!!

Hallelujah! You reign and are victorious as we confront our battles, trials and temptations!
Whatever it may be, whatever thorn or cross, help us to bear it and then proclaim Your glory! I exalt You! I bow humbly to You with much love and gratefulness! You are God!
And we belong to You!

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I agree with Peggy's prayer. You are El Roi, the God who sees, therefore, you know each person by name who has been listed for prayer and their exact needs. I ask in the name of your Son, Jesus, that you meet all the requested needs, whether it be healing, compassion, love from You and friends. Yes, You are the One to be praised, honored, and worshipped. Thank you, Father, in advance for the healings you are performing in the lives of people listed here at the Lighthouse. I just bless Your name for all that You do for your children. You said You would meet all our needs and I'm beliveing that You are meeting the needs of those listed here. I give You glory, honor and praise for all that You are doing now and in the future. Praise Your holy name. It is an honor to be able to come hear and talk with You, Father, about those who need a healing in their lives. Bless Your name, Father, bless Your name.
I love You so much and thank You for what You have done in mine and my dh lives. Praise You Father.
I just can't seem to praise you enough for You are wonderful, counselor, healer and lover of our souls. Praise Your holy name.

"Greater is He that is in Denise then he that is of this world." But Your stripes Denise has been healed and we await good results. We plead the blood of Jesus over her and ask that according to Your will, she will recover and be whole in You!
We give You all the glory, honor and praise in Jesus Name...

Lord God Almighty, thank You for seasons of life. Thank You for the beautiful sunrises and sunsets and the colors of fall. Thank You for the white blanket of snow we had this week. Thank You for the sunshine that is melting it away and watering the grass and trees. Thank You for the joy I have because Your Spirit lives in me.

Today I pray for my sweet friend, Scoti who is grieving the loss of her son. Be her strength during this time. Comfort and wrap Your arms around the family during this time. Be with his wife and two young daughters and his brother. Thank You for Kristoffer’s heroism and his life of service. I trust He is safe in Your arms forevermore.

I pray for a pastor friend of mine who has liver cancer. You have a good plan for his life. You know and love him always and for that I praise You. He is Your son. Be his comforter and his healer. I pray for wisdom for the doctors and for his treatment. I pray for pain relief and complete healing and for any fear to flee. Reveal more of Your love to him, his family and church during this difficult time. Thank You for his faithful service to the body of Christ.

I also pray for Katie, a 15 year old with stage 4 cancer. Someone I don’t even know, but someone who has the same cancer my brother once had. Please, God, come quickly. Do what only You can do, heal her if it is Your will. Suffering is so hard to understand. I don’t even know how to pray. Make a way for this precious life. Comfort her and her loved ones as they wait on You.

Father God, You are close to the brokenhearted, the lonely, the lost, the hurting. Thank You.

And Lord, I need Your words as I prepare to speak next Tuesday to a group of women about spiritual winters. Grant me eyes and ears to see and hear You clearly. Not my ideas, Your truths. Please pour Your love into me so that I can give that love to all who are present. May they see You, not me. May they be drawn to Your face and Your embrace. You are worthy. You are there for us during all seasons of our lives. Thank You.

Blessed be the name above all names. Jesus.


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.
