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.

"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.
This blog ONLY works if we all JOIN together 
in prayer and sharing.

PLEASE WRITE YOUR PRAYER, or PRAYER REQUEST, 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.

"For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them. " Matthew 18:20

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.

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, thank you for all my online friends. Touch and heal those who need healing. Heal my dear loved one and my friend's sister who have cancer. Help them, Lord, we pray, minister to them. Answer all the prayer requests, Lord. You know what they are before we even speak them. Lead, guide and direct our steps in the New Year. Thank you for your provision and care. Bless all my friends and loved ones. In Jesus name, Amen.

Denise said...

Father, please help my sister Vicky get back in church, and my dad too. I pray for salvation of my nephew Billy, his wife Beth, my niece Kelli, and her husband John. I very much pray for my brother Jim, He is an athesist, please help him to believe. I love You Father. Amen.

From the Heart said...

Father, thank You for all the prayers you have answered. Thank you for safe traveling for all in my family and others that were on the road this past year.

There are a lot of requests listed here at The Lighthouse and I know You know each one of these people and what they need. I humbly ask that You supply all the needs listed, healing, salvation, comfort, peace, etc. Just put Your loving arms around each one and let them know You are right beside them in the name of Your Son, Jesus. You are El Roi, the God Who sees. You see more than we can see in these requests. I give You thanks now for the good reports we are going to hear.

Father, You know the request that lies within my heart. I just ask that You give wisdom, peace, love, understanding and all that is needed surrounding this request.
Give dh and I the wisdom to help with this request. I love You so much and know that You are a loving God and will supply every need. Praise Your Holy name, praise Your name, Amen.

Peggy said...

Father, You hear the beautiful prayers of my sisters above and listen to mine each day for the many online friends that I know and You know even so much better. I come here and stand with each one,lifting these petitions and many unspoken ones to Your Throne and asking that Your will not only be done, but that we pray according to Your will. Give us the strength to accept Your will and whatever we many need to press on, knowing Your will.

The serenity prayer is what comes to my mind as I type my words and so I pray:

"God grant me(us) the serenity to accept the things I(we) cannot change;
the courage to change the things I(we) can; and the wisdom to know the difference."

"Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next."

All wisdom comes from You!
Bring each person that we are praying for and that is praying to the place of embracing wherever You have us, to do Your Will and be strong and courageous in whatever our circumstance.
For You, O God, have a plan and we must seek Your will, Your plan,Your purpose. Help us to let go and lean on You. Teach us to trust You in all our lives daily. You are in control. Your Grace is sufficient. You are more than enough. We are more than conquerors in You! Your Word directs our paths and leads us by still waters.
Encourage us along the way and strengthen us when we are weak or weary or bordering on despair or giving up. You are our Rock! You are our Refuge! May we run to You first in everything. Thank You for the hearts of those we pass through the Lighthouse of Prayer and especially those who take the time to pray!
Hear these petitions spoken and whispered as well as those that are unspoken. Holy Spirit,fill us,direct us, mold us and change us.

We give You all the glory, honor and praise that is rightfully Yours for what You are doing, the seen and the unseen. We believe You and believe in You and Your Word! Greater are You within us than "he" that is of this world. We exalt You as King, Ruler and all authority over these petitions, petitioners and the hearts and souls of those prayed for... we receive all that You richly give us this day, reveal Yourself to us, we pray in the beloved Name of Jesus...

Denise said...

Denise said...

Father, my heart is so heavy for my brother in-law Danny. He is an alcholic, satan has totally consumed him with this addiction. He is killing his self, and my sister. My sister is drained physically, mentally, and spiritually. Please help them both Father, they need a touch from You. Thank You. Amen.

From the Heart said...

Father, You know the prayer I just wrote a little while ago that did not post. I know that You know what was in the prayer and I just ask that You answer all the needs I listed. I agree with Denise in her prayers for her family and ask that You cover Peggy in all that she is doing this month in the name of Jesus.

Prayer Central said...

From "IN HIS NAME",Day 6 with Prayer Central(see Personal Prayerlife or Prayer Central

Jesus, I recognize You as the Lamb of God and the authority of Your blood sacrifice. No other god and no other philosopher has shed their blood, only You paid the price for our salvation. I thank you that Your blood can cover every sin. I come before You Father in the name of Your beloved Son and I apply His salvation to ___________.
Danny, Jim, ...

I hold up the wounds of Jesus over each of their lives as the seal of my Father’s love. I declare the power of Jesus blood to cleanse their conscience and free them to serve ‘the living God.’ I bind the forces of darkness, all the strongholds of addiction, false religion and distractions in the Name of the slain Lamb. Be magnified Lord Jesus. For all blessing, honor, glory and dominion belong to You forever and ever.

Cathy said...

Amen! Thank you, Lord for hearing and answering our prayers. In Jesus name, amen.

Denise said...

Use her for your glory, Lord. Please answer all the other prayer requests here. Thank you for all our blessings, in Jesus name we pray. Amen

Peggy said...

Heavenly Father, I come to You today and lift Joan and her husband to You! He is scheduled for surgery on Jan. 16th! You already know all the details and we are TRUSTING his care to You. We may not understand why is EKG was abnormal on his pre-op, but we ask that You changed whatever is not normal or right to be exactly as You created him.
He is Yours! Joan is Yours!
As You children, we ask for not only Your favor but also an extra portion. We ask for peace and complete assurance
that he/they are completely in Your control. Perhaps You are doing a miracle right now and removing this mountain. Thank You that he is not having any other symptoms and that his heart is normal.

We cast out any fear or doubts in Jesus' Name. We ask You to stop and thoughts not of You from shaking Joan. We ask that YOU BE NEAR Joan and her husband.
Nothing is too difficult for You! We call on You and we call on Your miraculous saving grace in Truth! We believe You and in You for miracles. Each day we ask that You send Comfort, Peace and complete Trust to Joan and continue with Your hand over her husband, blessing him and restoring all to normal... we ask this according to Your will and in the Name of Jesus. We rely on You for Healing as Healer and Great Physician for her husband. Thank You for all that You are doing!
Wrap Your loving arms around Joan and him and give them a touch of Your power and strength in the precious Name of Jesus, we pray...

Peggy said...

Father, (and His praying people) Forgive me for so many typos in my prayer above... but my heart and words of my mouth flow quicker than my hands type... and it looks like my keyboard and fingers were not in agreement)...

Lifting Denise and all the others before You this day also, LORD. Release Your wisdom and healing powers...

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I come to you this day to ask for healing for those listed here at The Lighthouse. You know who they are and what they need and I just ask that You would heal and supply every need that is listed.

I agree with Peggy's prayer for Joan's husband. Give them peace and complete trust in You. You are Master of all things and I feel it hurts You when one of Your chidren has problems. I pray that you will give Joan and her husband peace and that You will let them feel Your loving arms around them.

I also lift up Denise and ask that You heal her from the top of her head to the bottom of her feet. She loves You so much and is such a blessing to all of us.

Father I ask that You would be with my uncle and his wife. They are in their 80's and the last of my uncles. They are not well. Provide whatever is needed in their lives and I pray that one day I will see them again.
They live so far away that I haven't seen them in a very long time. You know Father, that I have talked with them by phone many times. They are so precious to me but they are in Your hands.

I also ask for healing of my dh's face and the swelling and slight pain around the surgical site where his carotid artery was cleaned out. He is seeing his surgeon Tuesday and Father, I pray that he will not find anything wrong in the name of Jesus.

Father, I thank You for the good report on my dear friend's daughter. The doctor's have put a patch over the leakage in her spine and her headaches have stopped and her vision is getting better. She is Your child and believes very strongly in Your healing power. I just praise You, honor You and give You all the glory for what You have done to accomplish her healing.

I love you so much Father and thank You for helping me control the pain in my back. You are so precious to me and my family. I also ask that You go with us this weekend to visit my SIL and that You will give us words that will be a comfort for her in the name of Jesus. I bless Your name Father, I bless Your name in the name of Your Son who gave His life that we might have healing, salvation and an eternal home in Heaven when our life here is finished. Amen and Amen.

Denise said...

Father, I lift up Joan's husband to You. He will be having surgery soon, please be with his doctor's. Give them wisdom to take good care of him. Thank You Father. Amen.

Peggy said...

Father, Although I have been praying, I was not here on time to lift a prayer and stand in agreement with Alice's prayer. Even though, I may have been late, You are never late. You are always near! You go before Alice's husband this day for his appt. with the surgeon. Continue to bring complete healing.

Alice had many beautiful requests and words to You, Lord but as for now, I come to You just for her husband.
I give You praise O Father!
Thank You for what You are doing in him and through prayers. We ask for You to cleanse the area completely, reduce the swelling and take away any pain in Jesus Name. For Jesus has already endured and suffered far beyond what we could imagine or do, yet we come in all humility asking that by His stripes Alice and her dh will find complete healing.
We ask according to Your will to do whatever... yet we continue to knock and seek complete healing and restoration. Nothing is too difficult for You as Healer and Great Physician. Lead the medical experts, surgeons, and others giving care through Your wisdom and guide them as You guide hands and kindness. Help them to be thorough in whatever they put their hands to and show compassion on each patient. We trust them into Your hands and thank You for all that You do in the precious Name of Jesus... Be exalted Lord! Be glorified!!! hallelujah!

Be near and hear each petition that we continue to knock and seek Your Divine supernatural power to intervene on behalf of You children. We give You praise for the praise reports and we praise You for the rest as well that You would use us as vessels emptied out and committed to intercede for others... so that You may be glorified! We honor You! We give glory to the Name above all others! We sing praise and thank You!

We will continue speaking as I sign out here Lord... for my time is Your time, my day is Your day, may I pray according to Your Spirit and in Your way not mine... Glory to the King!

Denise said...

Father, please watch over Alice's husband. Take his pain away, and give him healing. Be with him as he goes to his appointment. Let him hear only good news. Thank You Father. Amen.

Father, please be with a young girl by the name of Michelle. Her parents are in the middle of getting a divorce, neither one of them is noticing all the pain this is causing their daughter. She is in much pain, heart is breaking over this. She is threatening to kill herself. Please intervene in this situation Father, have Your way, and will. Thank You. I love You. Amen.

Denise said...

Father God, thank You for taking care of Alice's husband. please watch over Alice, and heal her eyes. Amen.

Denise said...

Although I haven’t heard directly from Michelle, I am hearing from others at the school, all 8th graders, including my own son. I’m convinced these kids, have been targeted by the enemy. Since Monday 3 kids, or their families have contacted me, and shared that they are going through a hopelessness, a deep one they never felt before. One boy, although plagued by depression, took a staple, and “stenciled” a profanity on his arm. He threatened to kill himself, just as Michelle did. These are all great kids, going to a strong Christian school. My son was particularly down, and anxious today, and I literally poured oil on his head, and canceled, in the name of Jesus, all plans of the enemy on these precious kids. He said he feels a lot better, and I offered to open our house up Friday night, for any kids that would like me to pray. He seemed encouraged by that.

If you could lift up Youngstown Christian school, it seems like the 8th grade class is especially under attack---and Michelle and Nathan seem the hardest hit. Brian is my son, and other kids I’ve talked to are Luke, Nicole, Lisa, Aaron, Markell, Noah, Vanessa, Gabby, James, Kylin, Jenna, Sara, Laura. The school has over 97 churches represented and has a lot of inner city situations. There are kids who attend who aren’t able to have dinner every night. Some pray that their homes won’t get shot at that night. It’s heartbreaking. I’ve felt long before I moved to the area that this age group are the pioneers to lead the way in the greatest movement of God, and I know that movement is underway. I pray they grab on the truth that they are not the defeated ones, but the desperate coward named satan is the only defeated one. I received this email from my friend this evening, please pray.

Denise said...

Thank You Father God for taking care of Alice's eyes, please continue to bless her. We love You. Amen.

Denise said...

Father God, please be with Aselya,and her husband. They just loss their precious baby. Please let them lean upon You, and comfort each other during this time. Let friends, and family be there to support them. Let their faith not waver, but grow stronger. Thank You. Amen.

Denise said...

Father God, please be with my friend's aunt, she will be having surgery on her shoulder. Give the surgeon wisdom to take good care of her. Thank You Father.

Denise said...

Father God, please watch over my uncle Charles. He has an anurism in his stomach, he also has heart problems, and high blood pressure. He is not a young man, he is in his 70's. Right now, they are just watching him, but he may eventually have to have some surgery. Have Your way, and will Father. I love You. Amen.

Cathy said...

Father God, Answer all those requests made by your precious child, Denise. She has such a kind, loving and caring heart. She is always praying for others. Touch her with you healing hand, Lord, making her whole. Bless her and her Lovebug, in Jesus name. Amen

Denise said...

Father God, please be with Alice, and her family. Her dear sister in-law, passed away from cancer, she is now with You. Ease the grief and sorrow, that the family is feeling. Be close by their side. Thank You Father.

Peggy said...

Heavenly Father, I join my heart with Denise for our dear sister Alice, her dh, and his family in the passing of this precious one. (Though my time is limited at the cyber as You know, and all of our time in this earthly place is in Your hands and Your timing,
I want to extend my deepest condolences without knowing all the details, I give this to You). Send Your Holy Comforter to bring peace, comfort, a time to mourn and a time to heal. Be with each one, wrap Your loving arms around the family... embrace Alice and give her Your strength and words to fill her and others with
Your Light and Hope. May she be a shining Light and support to her husband, and he to her.
May each one of these dear family members sense Your aMazing love and Presence. Greet our dearly departed sister in Christ and grant her eternal rest with You, free from pain and suffering; give her Your peace eternally. Thank You that Alice and dh had a chance to pray with her. Move now through song and witness with Your Comfort, Grace, and Mercy... in Jesus name

Denise said...

Father God, I lift up before Your throne, my friend Andreas husband. He is battling cancer, please help them both through this time. Let their faith grow stronger, as they lean upon You. Please heal him, if it be Your will. I love You. Amen.

Denise said...

Father God, please keep watch over my uncle Charles. He is now having kidney problems. Be with him, as he finds out some important test results next week. Amen.

Denise said...

Father God, please be with our dear sis Peggy, as she is offline for awhile, due to computer problems. I ask, that if it be Your will, help her be able to get a new computer. Father, she loves You so very much, and uses her computer, as a tool, to help others know about You. We love her so much, please help bring her back online very soon. Thank You. Amen.

Cathy said...

Father, Heal all those mentioned in the prayer requests. Comfort Alice and her family. I agree with Denise in her prayer for our dear friend, Peggy. Please make it possible for her to continue sharing for your Glory, Lord. We all miss her so. In Jesus name, Amen

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I come humbly before You to thank You for all You have done in the life of my SIL. I truly believe her spirit is with You and now she can rest in peace. Thank you for all those who prayed for this dear family. There is a daughter who needs healing and her life restored and I just ask that You will somehow bring her home to You and heal her so she can realize that she needs You and her family.

There are so many listed here, Father, that need a touch from You.
You know them so much better than we do and exactly what they need in their lives.

I lift up Peggy to You and ask that You will supply her every need. She is so humbly doing the work You have called her to. I thank You, Father, for all that I know in my heart You will answer all the prayers that have been prayed for her.

I pray for direction Father, that you want me to do. I ask for my dh's healing of his body and the problems that I have, in the name of Jesus. Thank you for the sweet Holy Spirit Who give us peace and comfort. Thank you for all the prayers you have already answered this month and for those You are going to answer in the name of Jesus. Bless Your name Father, bless Your name. I love You so much and want always to do Your will. Amen.

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.
