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.

FEBRUARY PRAYER REQUESTS

"Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. 
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken"      
Ecclesiastes 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.

Doing PRAYER REQUESTS a little different once again. We will NOT be using the LINKY.

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.

So NOW in the "PRAYER LIFTED TO THE THRONE of GOD":

PLEASE WRITE YOUR PRAYER, or PRAYER REQUEST, this is the place that would normally read comments, here it will read "PRAYERS LIFTED TO THE THRONE of GOD" so just add your prayer request there.

IT WILL BE HELPFUL if you start out by writing in caps PRAYER REQUEST then be as specific or general as you want to explain how we can pray with or for you or whomever needs PRAYER. Updates or praise reports are appreciated but please do as much as you can in prayer form. If you leave a PRAYER REQUEST, please try to leave a prayer also if it is for someone other than yourself.

All others should be PRAYERS for the ones in need of prayer. Comments will be deleted if they are not in a PRAYER for someone or a PETITION for prayer.
"For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."  Matthew 18:20


I read this in one of my devotional books that I'm reading by Holley Gerth, "Rain On Me: Devotions of Hope and Encouragement for Difficult Times" and it just seems so appropriate for how we'd like to see this "Lighthouse of Prayer" be such a place to share the Light of Jesus with each other for we are not intended to go through the storms alone and we each have some SON to shine on/for someone else...


"Lord, You didn’t create us to go through life alone, especially in the hard times. I pray for friends who will walk through the rain with me. I know many of them are hurting too, and today I want particularly to pray for.

now write your

PRAYER REQUEST

FOR WHOM?

FOR WHAT?

(need not be specific)


Lift the need in a prayer,
words from your heart
to the
Throne of God


This blog post is only for PRAYER REQUESTS, 
please use other posts to write other prayers.

Although, you have been doing well in writing PRAYER REQUEST, I noticed that with so many it is difficult to pick out the PRAYER REQUESTS easily and quickly to add our prayers of support so I added in the LINKY again and you can do both or either; don't allow the system to stop you from leaving your PRAYER or your REQUESTS for yourself or others...

PRAYERS THAT AVAIL MUCH

"DAILY PRAYER" from Germaine Copelandauthor of "Prayers that Avail Much"changes each day here up above or you can go directly to the Daily Prayer Site.

Prayers That Avail Much: 25th Anniversary Commemorative Gift Edition (Prayers That Avail Much) (Prayers That Avail Much)

This is just a place to keep the Daily Prayers from 
Germaine Copeland
in the comments.

So you can pray them daily or whenever you pass by here.

Germaine has another great book



A Message from Germaine: From My Heart to Yours

"Never has there been a time when prayer is needed more than now! Every believer can learn biblical principles of prayer that brings you into harmony and agreement with God and others. " 365 Days to a Prayer Filled Life


SALVATION of FAMILIES

Even though the Prayer & Fasting time is over,
we must continue to pray for 
SALVATION
Fasting banner 2011
Please join and read about this at S.U.M.  It is only for the first week of January 2012, whereas there are others Fasting 21 days... etc. The link tells you the specific information and then each day has a plan emphasis. I'd love to share all of what they have shared, but it's best if you go there and catch and read. Hopefully, JOIN!

Lynn shares a beautiful quote from J. Franklin that I love then she writes:
"I want a fresh start in 2012. Do you?
Our fast will begin on sunrise of January 2nd and last through sunset of January 6th. That's this Monday. There are many ways to fast but if you are medically able, fast from food in some way. I am preparing to fast on a liquid fast for three days and then finish the week out with a Daniel fast. This is what I hear the Lord asking of me. What is He asking of you.
Do you want a breakthrough? Do you want to be rid of a habitual sin or a bad habit? More importantly, do you want to hear from the Lord what He wants for your life? What is His will in your marriage? I know I do."
The the plan follows starting at sunrise of Jan. 2nd to sunset Jan. 6th or longer if you are able or have more loved ones to pray for and focus on:
Monday, "Pray for your spouse. Every aspect, his/her health, job, parenting, hobbies, his soul, heart, and emotional state. Pray to understand him better. Ask God to show you where you can be a better spouse and to give you the courage to take action in whatever area He reveals. Pray, pray, pray."
Great suggestion:
"Light a candle.
Each time you see the flame along with your hunger pangs; both will remind you to shoot up prayers."
Tuesday, "pray for your oldest child. All day. In the same manner. On days-three, four, and five pray for each subsequent child. If you have more than three kids double up days or extend your fast. If you don't have three kids, then pray for another significant relationship in your life."
If you'd like to leave your prayers here you are more than welcome... or else, follow along over at S.U.M.
Day 1: Rosheeda Lee shares a beautiful, strong prayer with this scripture: Proverbs 3:5-6
Day 2: Deuteronomy 6:5
Day 3: 1 John 5:5-8
Day 4: Psalm 119:25
Day 5: Song of Solomon 7:11
Day 6
How is God leading you to pray and/or fast, starting 2012 with Him, seeking His face, not just His hand of mercy, love and grace but SALVATION for those who have not yet come to the saving grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ... 


May 2012 be the year that Prodigals return, Unsaved are saved, Hardened are softened, Enslaved are set free, Deceived are enlightened by the Truth, Lost are Found, and ALL are REDEEMED by Jesus Christ now and for all eternity.
To God be the Glory!

Let's continue to pray for
SALVATION
throughout
2012!


WORLD PRAYER ASSIGNMENTS

from WORD Ministries, with Germaine Copeland, Prayers for January 2012...

Prayer Assignments for February 1-16


WORD MINISTRIES FEBRUARY PRAYER COVERAGE FOR THE NATIONS

"This is considered the month of love and expressing our love for special ones in our life. Isn’t it wonderful that God gave us the greatest valentine of all " in John 3:16... Let us pray together this month for the love of the Lord to shine bright in the nations of the earth!"


Please click on Prayer Assignments... to read more of who and how to pray for the Nations(number in parenthesis is for the day we are praying for that area, be sure to go read the specifics at WORD Ministries)... and let's cover God's Kingdom with love... we start out praying for Europe(1-5) "for God to raise up men and women who will pioneer this bridging of different cultures and backgrounds into one unified body that will glorify Jesus and win Europe back to the gospel." then on to the Pacific (6-8)"Completing the task of world evangelization in the Pacific..." continuing with Afghanistan (9-10), Albania(11), Algeria(12-13), American Samoa and Andorra(14), Angola (15-16)... it looks like we're praying A-Z from here on along with...



OPERATION WORLD: Prayer for Today... 1/6/12 The Church Worldwide; For the first 11 days, the prayer focus is the WORLD 

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!  Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion.” (Isaiah 52:7-8)

The World— January 1-11: Listed here are some of the critical international hot spots most likely to cause turmoil, conflict, and suffering or even war in the coming years. These need to be covered in prayer:

1 The future of Jerusalem. (Israel)The world’s holiest city is probably also its most volatile flashpoint. Conflict between Israelis and Palestinians has resisted major international efforts to resolve it. The fundamental and seemingly irreconcilable differences between most Israelis and Arabs mean that any outbreak of serious conflict can easily embroil neighboring countries – especially Lebanon and Syria. Many feel that such a war is almost inevitable. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

I hope to add one for each day, in the comments, just like in the Daily Prayer from Germaine Copeland, because there are 30... and we should pray for #1 every day. Maybe God will lay one of these on your heart to continuing praying for that country. Please pray as led by the Holy Spirit...


The rest will be continued in the "PRAYERS LIFTED to the THRONE" (comment area)...

60 Day Prayer Experience

List of Countries in Operation World

"Prayer not only changes people, situations and even the course of history, but also those who pray! It is dangerous for the enemy and also 'dangerous' for you." Patrick Johnstone (from "Why pray for the nations?" Pray and the Nations

So when it's the 9th, pray #9... etc. Pray for any country as or when you feel led. This post is to PRAY FOR THE NATIONS so "prayers lifted to the throne" here need to be for a NATION. Thank you!
*actually posted on 1/6/12, reposted again each month with new prayer assignments or links to WORD but did not want the others to be moved down from above such as our PRAYER REQUESTS and personal prayers...

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.
