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.

Importance of Prayer

especially for our nation, our leaders and other world leaders and their countries, we are commanded to pray for those in authority...

From First to Last
"Have you ever stopped to think about how great a portion of Scripture is occupied with the subject of prayer? Within the very first pages of the Bible you read, “At that time people began to call upon the name of the Lord.” (Genesis 4:26) Its closing plea is “Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.” (Revelation 22:20)
Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.
Colossians 4:2
Throughout His Word are other examples. Jacob wrestled with the Lord and called upon Him (Genesis 32:24-30). Daniel prayed three times a day (Daniel 6:6-10). David struggled with life circumstances; his Psalms give glimpses of his expressions in prayer. Paul and Silas prayed and sang hymns to God (Acts 16:25).

Charles H. Spurgeon said, “We may be certain that whatever God has made prominent in His Word, He intended to be conspicuous in our lives. If He has said much about prayer, it is because He knows we have much need of it. So deep are our necessities, that until we are in Heaven we must not cease to pray.”

Beloved, continually lift your requests for comfort, strength, guidance for yourself and this nation, humbleness in daily living, and zealousness in proclaiming God’s saving grace. Rejoice in the privilege of fellowship with the Father."

Lord we acknowledge that You are the Door of life, the true Ruler who determines what is right or wrong throughout all time. We ask in Jesus’ name, cover the president. May every barrier, blockage, screen, veil, covering that hinders the president’s ability to see the right way, be pulled off, be knocked down. Let a breach be cut through, that he may have right vision. (From the Prayer Wall)

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.
