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.

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.


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




(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...


Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, I lift up my sister Vicky to Your throne. She is facing some upcoming female surgery to lift her vaginal wall. Please guide the surgeons hands as they operate on her. Calm her nerves, and love on her Father. Thank You. Amen.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, Please help me do whatever it takes to get my blood pressure, and especially my blood sugars under control, if they continue to run high, I am going to have another stroke, or worse. Thank You Father, I love You. Amen.

Denise said...

Father, my dear friend Alice, and her husband, will be traveling this weekend. Please watch over them, and keep them safe. Thank You. Amen.

Cathy said...

Father, I pray in agreement for all the prayer requests Denise has prayed. Lord, I pray a hedge of protection around Denise and plead the blood of Jesus over her. I pray for peace and healing for her. I pray for our dear friend, Peggy, who is also sick. Touch her and heal her, dear Lord, in Jesus name, Amen.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, please watch over our dear prayer warrior sister Peggy. She loves You so very much. She is not well right now, touch her body with Your healing hands, take every pain away from her. Comfort her, as only You can. We love You. Amen.

Peggy said...

Father God,

Thank You so much for my dear sisters Denise, Cathy and Alice! Thank You for hearing their prayers!

I had to come back to the public cyber Lord to share a prayer in agreement with them and also more specifically for what Denise has shared about her health!
Each one of these prayer needs and previous ones for others have been in my daily prayers. I have cried out for You to send healing to Denise. Give her wisdom Lord and help her in how to do what she should be doing and knows to take good care of her temple by lowering her levels. Give her strength and wise control. Help her to love herself as much as You love her. Bless Denise with all that she needs to be able to be strong and break this cycle of the enemy because whatever is his scheme, it will not work.
Denise will not be defeated, she is victorious in Jesus! (the video prayer of J. Meyer was added for each one's healing today in Jesus' name). Father,there is so much I want to pray for her and I have spoken with You about daily, she is on my mind and in my heart. As I read her report today, my heart was grieved but we will not receive this report (even though it gives us good wisdom and the right direction for us to pursue for GREAT health) we receive and believe the REPORT OF THE LORD, which says by Jesus' stripes Denise is healed, her artery is unblocked, her levels are going down to normal, and all of Denise is under Your mighty power and authority of control. I love my little sister, Lord, please be with her and help her overcome these darts. Arm her mind and her daily diet with Words of HOPE and encouragement from YOU and YOUR WISDOM of what she must do to prevent and get those levels under control. Denise knows Lord, so please help her. (This is why I had to return, Lord)

Father, I lift up each one of our sisters for You to meet their many needs and desires of their hearts. Please incline Your ear and hear their prayers.

I thank You for the needed covering that I have for healing for whatever I have going on; I do not even know why the pain, the sleepless nights, the lack of hunger, the need to drink lots more water that I know I need to do... Praise Your name that even today because of these prayers, my body had it's 1st day this week without pain. I pray it continues through the night so I may sleep. Give me wisdom as to what is wrong or I need to do. Thank You for Your provision and Your care.
Thank You that I discovered my small heating pad to help and that I could get a gas tank to enjoy hot water to soak in and the relief. Thank You for rehydrating my body as I was able to get those drinks today also. I'm so thankful for my bank deposit each month and I don't take it for granted. I am very thankful.

Give traveling safeties and mercies to Alice and her dh as Denise prayed.

Bless my dear sisters in Christ with Your love, grace and the word COMFORT keeps coming to my mind.
We do not fight these battles alone. Continue to give Cathy what she needs physically for her health needs and provide for all that is on her heart and mind. No more stress, we are all blessed...
in Jesus name... we celebrate healing and amazing Grace! We are more than conquerors. Go before us and continue to light our way.

I did not have time to visit blogs or look for prayer needs but You, Father are aware of all the needs.
I release them to You,I thank You and praise You for doing the unseen and answering the unspoken.

Bless Karen and Sharon also, who I have not visited either except for a quick reply to Karen today. You are well aware of their needs, guide and direct their time and path. Brighten and lighten their days with Your love, grace and peace in knowing You have it all under control and in Your hands.
We trust in You! Thank You for the great and mighty things that You are doing in Jesus' Name. I so far behind God in keeping in touch... ahven't even checked my Yahoo this week... and had over a hundred in GR. Let each sister know I love them, sending hugs and prayers!

Cathy said...

Father, Amen to our dear sister's precious prayer for all those prayer needs. We pray for her protection and healing, Lord. Meet all her needs we pray, in Jesus name. Amen

From the Heart said...

Father, You know the prayer I just wrote regarding the prayer request of Peggy, Denise and others. You know the problem that is keeping me from signing in. I ask Father, that You stop whatever is trying to stop me in the name of Jesus.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You for blessing me with such prayer warrior sisters, like Peggy, Cathy, and Alice. May they be sweetly blessed, as they bless others. Amen.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, Please watch over my mother in-law Evelyn. She is having alot of pain in her knee, and leg. She is having to use a walker right now. We are waiting on some test results. Have Your way, and will with the results Father. We love You. Amen.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, Please watch over my niece Beth, she is passing a kidney stone, and is in alot of pain. Please ease her pain, and bring her comfort. Thank You Father. Amen.

Cathy said...

Father, thank you for all of our blessings. Heal my dear friends and family members needing healing I pray. And we lift all of these prayer requests up to you. Your Word says nothing is impossible with you, and we believe your Word. You are the great I AM and our loving Father. We love you, Lord. In Jesus name, Amen.

Cathy said...

Father, thank you for all of our blessings. Heal my dear friends and family members needing healing I pray. And we lift all of these prayer requests up to you. Your Word says nothing is impossible with you, and we believe your Word. You are the great I AM and our loving Father. We love you, Lord. In Jesus name, Amen.

Denise said...

Cathy said...

Father, thank you for caring for our sweet sister, Peggy. We are so glad she is feeling better. Please answer all the prayer requests. In Jesus name, we pray.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I thank You for all the prayers You have answered concerning my sisters who have put prayer requests here. Father, I thank you for the Psalm on my blog that I just read.
Today's Psalm:
Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
Psalm 107:8,9 / KJV

Father, I do give You praise for Your goodness and wonderful works to those in need. Thank You for satisfying the longing souls, and filling the hungry souls with goodness. You are so precious and kind and understanding. Thank You Father for the support You are giving our neice and her family in the home going of my dear SIL. You took her so peacefully and I give You all the praise for that and thank you for blessing her family and the comfort You are giving them. Praise Your Holy name, for You are worthy to be praised. I love You so much and thank you for all You are doing in our lives and answering the prayers that have been placed here at the Lighthouse. Bless You, Abba Father, bless You and thank You.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, Please watch over my neighborhood, there is so much sin all around these apartments. There is drinking, drugs, sex, and cross dressers. Please heal these sins, cleanse them, make this a clean neighborhood. Thank You. Amen.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, Please comfort my sister in-love. She is really missing my brother so very, very much. It breaks my heart to see her cry, and talk about him. He has been in heaven since 2008. But, we miss him so much, please wrap Your loving arms around her, and love on her sweetly. Dry her tears Father. Thank You Father. I love You. Amen.

Peggy said...

Thank You, dear Father, for knowing me and re-making me by Your grace in Jesus. Use me to do Your will and lead me to the appropriate people so that I can most effectively minister to them.

Father, I stand with Denise and lift up her SIL and Denise as their hearts miss their dear loved one. We are ever so thankful that they are in Heaven with You and Denise's mother also, but we miss and grieve our loved ones and our hearts break to see others hurting or burdened with sadness and grief. Be the lifter of our heads!

At the same time we ask this for Alice, her husband, and niece and the rest of the family as they too are grieving their recent loss of a loved one.

Father, we ask that Your Comforter come and fill the gap in our hearts. May the memories be happy ones. May our hearts be lifted and may we be filled with the oil of gladness, and put on a garment of praise even when we are burdened by sadness or despair. May we rise up and greet each day with thankfulness as You have given us yet another day and You are mending up the broken hearted and helping us carry any heaviness! Let us focus on the fruit of JOY. Sing songs of Love!

We love You so much, Abba. We rejoice in You!
Let not our hearts be troubled or burdened with one more day of heaviness
but find complete Joy and
Peace in Your unfailing Love, that we may trust in You, Your will, Your timing, Your Healing, for You are more than enough.

In Jesus' grace-filled name I pray...

Thanking You for all who come here to pray... Bless Alice, Cathy, Denise and me with Your continual strength and grace. Each day more healing and more of You!
Bless anyone else who passes by here, hear the spoken and unspoken prayers of the heart... pour out Your Comfort, Peace and wrap us in Your arms as we trust and wait on You...

From the Heart said...

Prayer Request - Father I come to You once again for one of dh's brothers. You have done so much for him. He has a bad heart but, Father You just keep using him and keeping him and his wife going as he ministers in song and playing his quitar. You have brought him through surgery on his coccyx bone where he had cancer. The doctor accidently clipped a nerve and he has to catherize himself. He has another cancerous tumor there but the doctor cannot remove it. That has been several years ago. Today, Father, he called and asked for prayer as he has 4 spots on his lungs and 1 of them is growing.
Help my bIl to make the right decision. Be with him as he talks with a surgeon that does a new procedure to remove whatever is growing by running a tube into his lungs and somehow is able to remove it so they can determine what it is. Father, he has been so faithful to you and I just ask that You heal him in the name of Jesus.

I continue to lift up my sisters in Christ, Denise, Cathy and Peggy.
Just pour out blessings upon them like they've never received before in the name of Jesus, Your precious Son who gave His life that we might have life.

Cathy said...

Father, I pray for those who have lost loved one, that you would comfort them and give them peace. I pray for protection for Peggy and Denise, and for salvation of those around them. Lord, heal Alice's bIl, be with him as he goes through all these trials. Help our sweet sister, Peggy to get back online, as we miss her so. Lord, heal those who need your precious healing touch. In Jesus name. Amen.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, Please be with Alice"s brother in-law, watch over his body, heal him of his health problems, if it be Your will. Give him peace, as only You can.Be with Peggy, we all love, and miss her very much, please let her be able to get back online soon. Bless over Cathy, and Karen, meet their every need. Thank You Father.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You for being my favorite Valentine, for You are true love. Please be with those that are lonely, and feeling lost, and unloved today. Spread Your love all over their lives, may they open up their hearts wide, and let You in. Amen.

From the Heart said...

Heavely Father, I am in awe of Your wonderful blessings You have given our grandson. He called today to tell us that You have blessed him with the infilling of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. Thank You for answering my prayers and I believe You are going to continue blessing him. He was so overjoyed it was hard for him to express all that You are doing not only for him but for a lot of the others on campus. He said he would tell us more that is happening when he comes home in a few weeks. Thank You, Abba Father, for making it possible for him to attend the Christian College where he can not only get knowledge for a career but receive blessings from You.
Thank You for the blessings You bestowed upon their Wednesday night prayer service. He said the minister did not even get to preach. Your Word and blessings are being pours out as You said it would in the last days. Thank You for answering our prayers. You are worhty, You are great, You do miracles so great there is no one else like You. I praise You, I give You honor and glory & worhship You.

Thank You for answering the prayers of others that have been placed on this site. Again, You are doing miracles so great. My BIL told his doctor he had been prayed for and is going to wait another month before letting the drs. do anything to him. He believes You have healed him. What a testimony to give a doctor.
Lord I believe You have healed him and again You do miracles so great.

Father, I just ask that You will bless Peggy with a brand new computer with all the updated technology so she can continue her ministry here. I pray that during this down time You will use her to bless others in Mexico, in the name of Jesus.

Father, I pray for mine, my dh's, and all represented here, extended families who do not know You that You will be able to get through to tham with the message of The Cross.
You know the two that I have been praying for that You will stop them as You did Saul on the way to Damascus. One has been totally misled to believe in someone else and the other one is so deep in alcohol but Father, You still love them and I believe I will live to see them turn their life over to You in the name of Your Son, Jesus.

Father, my heart is just over joyed with love for You and thankfulness. Bless Your Holy name, Abba Father, El Roi, the God who sees, Almighty God, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, wonderful Father. I love You so much I just don't have words to express how much I love You and thank you for answering the prayers of others that have been placed here at The Lighthouse. Your daughter, AliceE.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father,Please bless my sweet sis Alice. Hear her as she prayers for those she loves, answer her prayers Father. She is a mighty prayer warrior, bless all of her efforts for You. Amen.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, Please be near to the brother, of one of my dear sisters of the heart. Please heal him, and restore his health to him. Pour Your strength all over him Father. Thank You. Amen.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, I am down on my knees, crying out to You. Please hear the cries of my heart. Eddie and I are very overwhemed, and heavy burdened by medical bills caused from my stroke. We praise You for wonderful insurance provided through Eddie's job. It did help, but there are still so many bills left unpaid. I do not want Eddie's checks to get garnished, or for us to get into any trouble. Please help us Father. We are looking to You for guidance, show us the way out of this mess, please. We love You so much. Amen.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, You are the God of this universe. You own it all and I just ask that You bless Denise and her husband with the money to pay off their bills. They need a miracle that only You can provide. I ask that You give Denise peace regarding all of this. You have worked miracles in their lives already by bringing Denise out of the sickness that she suffered. Bless them Father in ways that no one else can do but You. Phil. 4:19 says "And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus" and Psalm 23:1 The Lord is my shepherd: I shall not want"

Father, supply all of the needs for Denise and her Lovebug according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Lord God Jehovah You are Denise's shephered and she shall not want. Thank You, Father, for answering this prayer in the name of Your precious Son, Jesus and again You do miracles so great, there is no one like You: Bless Your name, Father, bless Your name. I give You all the honor, glory and praise for what You are going to do in the lives of this precious family. Amen and Amen.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, I lift up my friend Elizabeth before Your throne. She is dealing with alot right now. She is in the middle of a custody battle with her ex husband over their daughter. She cannot afford the lawyer fees, and may lose her daughter because of that. Please intervene on her behalf, she is a wonderful mother. She loves her daughter with all of her heart, and her daughter wants to be with her. She has so many financial burdens right now. Have Your way, and will in all of this Father. Thank You. Amen.

Karen said...

I lift up the prayer requests I read here this morning. I also ask for prayer concerning my apartment and whether I should move because of a dangerous situation here.

From the Heart said...

I just came here Lord to thank You for all the answers You are giving to the prayer requests of my dear sister Denise and Karen. Father, just watch over Karen and protect her. I appropriate the 91st Psalm over her and her apartment. I also ask Father, that You will give her the direction she needs about moving. May she show beyond a shadow of doubt exactly where she is supposed to be living, in the name of Your Son, Jesus. Amen and Amen. Again, You do miracals so great, there is not one else like You. Praise, Your Holy name, Father God.

Cathy said...

Father, I see that my last prayer on Feb 14 here in agreement with Alice and the other prayer requests is missing. Thank you that you hear and answer our prayers. Lord, please answer all of these prayers requests. Be with our dear friend, Peggy, who me miss so very much. We love you, Lord, in Jesus name, Amen.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, I lift up my sweet heart to heart sister Karen to Your throne. Please guide her every step, as she decides whether or not to move from her apartment. Give her wisdom Father, to make the right decision. In the mean time, please put a wall of protection all around her, keep her safe. Thank You Father. Amen.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, I am here to lift up my mother in-law to Your throne. We found out today, that on May 10, she has to have two knee replacements. Please be with her, keep her calm. We love You. Amen

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, Please watch over the wife of my nephew Tyler, her name is Lea. She has MS, and the doctor's told her she should not get pregnant, it would be way to dangerous. Well, she is pregnant, which is wonderful, but very scary. Please take care of Lea, and her health. Watch over the precious baby she is carrying, let it be healthy, and safe. I love You Father. Amen.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, My sister has decided, with a very heavy heart, to leave her husband. She is going to stay with her son for several weeks. Her husband is a alcoholic, and has become very abusive, not physically, but in every other way. She loves him so very, very much. But, this situation is killing her. She needs some time away from him, to clear her mind, and take care of her self. Please guide her through this difficult time, take care of her, please. Also, be with her husband, soften his heart toward You. Help him to reach for You, instead of alcohol. Thank You Father. Amen.

From the Heart said...

Father, I come to agree in prayer with Denise regarding her nephew's wife, her sister and her mother-in-law. You know exactly what these dear people need and I just ask that You would supply their every need. I pray for comfort, healing, whatever they may need will be theirs in the name of Your Son, Jesus.

Prayer Request: Father, You, alone, know the condition my back is in and what it is affecting in my body. I believe that by the stripes Your Son bore on Calvary I can ask for healing and I have, but I've still got the problems. I've made the decision, after talking with You, to make an appointment with my doctor and see what he thinks. It's been a year since I first saw him. I know, Father, that You will be with me and give me the direction I need and if it's surgery I know You will be right beside the doctor and me. Father, You have brought me through so much and spared my life twice and I trust You completely. You do miracals so great, there is no one like You. Bless Your Holy, Mighty name. I pray all of this in the name of Jesus. I love You so much and want always to do Your will. Praise Your holy name for the answer whatever it may be. Amen.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, Please be with my friend Alice, ease her fears, and her pain. Be with her as she goes to the doctor, guide the doctor in how to treat her. Thank You Father. Amen.

Peggy said...

Heavenly Father,

I came here to pray and already I was side tracted so I go back to the prayer that I started this day with because I want nothing to do with satan's cunning weapon of distraction so...

Lord, I ask You to help me remove all of the distractions in my life, even if it hurts. Help me to seek You above all else and be led by the Holy Spirit in my daily life. I want to live for You!

I come here to stand with my dear prayer warriors for their many needs and those of others.

For my dear sister Alice,
for the healing of the condition in her back and Your guidance as she gets medical counsel but has placed her full trust in Your wisdom, counsel and power in her life and other miracles You have done. We thank You and ask for more favor and grace as Your Holy Spirit leads and helps her. Take away the pain and give her the BEST solution possible! I give You praise for her confidence in her prayer and the beautiful prayers that she shares her for so many. Thank You for using her here and blessing us with her sweet words.

For my dear sister Denise and her many family needs and for herself. I stand together with her for her prayers for each one... as she prays for so many and has such a heart for others and You! Ohh Father, Be with my dear sis Denise as she goes for her dr. appt. and give her drs. Your wisdom and counsel for her and the best report. So many heavy situations she has lifted to you, oh Lord.
We ask for You to meet each need for her MIL, her sister, her BIL, and other family members. We ask for Your Provision for Denise, Your protection for Vicky and direction and courage. Thank You for Your authority to trample the enemy and receive Your power to rise up and stand victoriously.

I lift up Cathy and her heart's concerns. Thank You Lord for hearing her prayers and being with her, calming and bringing a good report for her dear loved one.

I stand with Denise, Alice and Cathy for our dear sister in Christ, Karen. Put a hedge of protection around her and open a door for her to leave if it is the BEST solution or cover her as You guide and direct her steps and this situation.
Watch over Karen, El Roi.
Bring her safety... and also our dear sis Denise her lives in a not so safe area... Father God,
surround them constantly with Your Protection and assurance that You are watching over them. We take authority against the crime and dangerous situations lurking around them and that You go before them to battle in the heavenlies against all that is harmful, and in Jesus name we ask that You deliver us from evil and any harm. Your grace is enough and Your wisdom far exceeds ours so we seek You for all guidance. Continue to put a wall around us of Your powerful hedge of Protection. Thank You that we can trust in You in all we face. Your Word promises us that You have not given us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power and love and a sound mind, discipline; For You know the plans You have for us; plans to prosper us and not harm us; plans to give us hope and a future. We claim these for every situation above and ask Your will be done. Show us Lord a Word to encourage us in all we seek from You!

Peggy said...

(my prayer was too long so here is the continuation)

There are so much that I
wanted to pray here as we journey forward into this season, but time limits me yet I know You hear all the prayers that I lift to You daily much more than I can write here... all these dear petitions and others I've read quickly that need your prayers; for prodigals, for many grieving losses, for many in the midst of trials, for the spoken and the unspoken but let me never leave without giving You my praise and thanks! Telling You how much I love You and love those who keep vigil here praying for others. But first we LOVE You, we adore You, we give You all glory, honor and praise for what You have done, what You are doing and for what You will do.
Mostly for who You are...
Healer, Protector, Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Shalom, Jehovah Rapha, Jehovah Nissi, Jehovah Shammah, El Roi, El Shaddai, Pure and Holy,
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus...
there is no Name that is greater or more powerful.
We bow and surrender to You and Your will. We sing a song of love to You and one giving thanks! You are Mighty! You are all powerful! You are able! You are Love! Love comes from You! You reign in our hearts and lives. Fill us!!! Empower us to move in and by Your Spirit! Speak Words of Comfort, Peace, Wisdom, Love and Security in all.

Thank You Most Holy One!
I bow to You and humble myself before You as You continue to transform us and our hearts. Thank You for Your love, mercy and grace!!! Hallelujah!

Peggy said...

Father, in the name of Jesus, we ask you to strengthen us with might by your Spirit. We receive your promise of the Holy Spirit-- your power and ability. We ask for the fuller manifestation of the grace and energy of the blessed Spirit of God, in the removal of all that is contrary to your revealed will, so that we will not grieve the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit, work in mightier power in the Church, for the exaltation of Christ and the blessings of souls. We need the power of the Holy Spirit working in our personal and business relationships. Amen

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, I come to You on behalf of my nephew Billy and his wife and sweet daughter. They moved to a new house this week, and really need help financially to be able to keep the house Father. Please watch over their needs. I love You. Amen.

Denise said...

Dear Heavenly Father, please be with my neighbor Melinda, as she is searching for a job, her need is great Father. Please help her during this time. Thank You. Amen.

Cathy said...

Dear Father, Amen to Peggy's precious prayer for all our needs and the love expressed for you. Lord we pray for healing, provision, protection, guidance, comfort, peace and strength. Bless our sweet friend, Peggy, and meet all her needs. She knows how much we all miss her and love her. Please answer all of the prayer requests here. In Jesus name we pray. Amen

Denise said...

Our grandson is home from college and has asked us to meet with him and his family at his other grandmother's. I ask that you be with him as he tells us about what You are doing in his life. And, oh how I thank You for the work You are doing through him.
Continue to bless Him and may He always listen to You in Jesus name I pray.

I stand in agreement with the prayers here.

Today, as Denise begins her 90 day challenge, I ask that You give her all wisdom and strength that she will need. Guard her heart and her mind. Give her stamina. May she eat well and what You require of her to maintain her levels for her diabetes.
May she be content with each achievement, never asking more of herself than what You in all Your plan for her. Keep her healthy and in step with You as she exercises. Let her know that she is pleasing in Your sight and You are there to guide her. May she only hear the Truth of how beautiful she is and resist the lies or doing more than she needs. We continue to ask for healing as You will to open that artery to her brain and give her release of pain from the top of her sweet head to the bottom of her toes.
Help her pace herself wisely. Let her know when to stop and help her be able to enJoy each new day as she works on her goal. Revitalize her each morning and help her sleep better through the night. Be sure to STOP her when she reaches 120... no more, or no less. Thank You Father for Denise and thank You for caring for her each minute of every day. We love You Father and give You glory and honor in taking care of our temple, shaking off only what needs to go and asking for Your strength to avoid the pitfalls in life, the lies spoken to our thoughts, and the obstacles which keep us from drawing closer to You! You are more than enough and You find pleasure in Your new Creations as we reflect more of Jesus. Thank You!

We ask all prayers humbly and according to Your will, hear us as we pray in the Name of our precious Lord and Savior Jesus!

Denise said...

Father, I thank You so much for my heart to heart sister Peggy. Please greatly bless her, meet her every need, and keep her safe. She is so busy doing Your work, she never stops. She encourages everyone, spreads Your love and word, and is such a mighty prayer warrior. Thank You for blessing the world with her presence. Amen.

Denise said...

Father, I seek Your protection as I go out walking in my neighborhood, guide my every footstep. Thank You, I love You. Amen.

Peggy (Anderson Hernandez) said...

Holy Spirit, O Comforter,
so precious... I ask You to surround the family of my Uncle John, who passed away in his sleep Sun. evening. He is the last living brother of my dad. Send peace and a message of good hope to my cousins that he has not known them for most of the last 4 yrs. It is so difficult to watch someone you love fade away and not know you. I wish I could be their with my cousins this Fri. as they bid farewell. I pray that my Uncle John knew You and had received Jesus as His Savior. Grant him eternal peace with You. I pray that each of my cousins know You through Jesus. May the Catholic mass be one of comfort and give my family this time to grieve their loss and come together to share good memories of my Uncle John and his wife Shirley, hopefully now united in eternity with You and at peace with my dad,his oldest brother. May forgiveness reach each one and mercy and grace flow. Pour Your love over everyone and
may Words of life be spoken of Jesus, who died so we might live in Him.
I thank You for my Uncle John and the kindness he always spoke to me. I thank for his large family and the love and togetherness they shared.
I love my cousins and I ask that You meet each one wherever they are at so that they may come to know You as I have the privilege. I sorrow at the fact that I can't be with them at this time but I ask that You embrace them for me and let them know I am praying for a garment of praise for their spirit of heaviness. I love You Father! Be with each one Be known to them as their Father... Abba. Bring Comfort, peace even some joy as we lay John to rest and let Your perpetual Light shine upon them. You are merciful and loving! There is no name above Jesus! We commit this time to reveal Yourself through Jesus to my catholic family. Do not let religion stand in the way or churches or any negative feeling. Rise up and allow Jesus to shine brightly and draw each one to You in the precious blood of Jesus, I pray...

Be with my sister and bil as they go and also give them safe travel to CA to be with my niece, her husband and their adorable grandson. Bless their time. Thank You for having my sister write me and let me know. I ask that You would reach down and draw each family member of all our extended families to not place their faith in a church, or even a man, but only in Jesus... Holy Spirit reveal Yourself in all Your power and might so that not one would perish. I would love to pray without a shadow of a doubt, that each one has a relationship with You, but I do not know for sure... yet I ask in Jesus Name that You would save them or put someone specifically in that place of asking each one if they know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

John Anderson, may you rest in peace! May Our LORD lift You up and may the eternal reward of heaven be yours and your children in Jesus' name.

Peggy said...

Thank You Father for that quick response that my sister wrote me to confirm:

"Yes, I will be going to the funeral. I will give them your sympathies. ... I’ll let you know if I find out anything. Yes it’s sad but they were praying for a peaceful death for him. So thanks be to God that he now has the gift of eternal life."

Glory Hallelujah... this is a double confirmation because this also shows that my sister also believes in Jesus as the gift of eternal life...
even that she wrote me
back and told me that she was "glad to hear from" me (that too is a miracle)... Thank You Father for the love of family that breaks all barriers of hardness or distance. I love You and I rejoice that my Uncle John is in heaven with my dad, his brother... may Your peace reign forever and ever on earth as it is in heaven... hallowed be Your Name!!!

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, You are so wonderful, marvelous, kind and loving. Thank you for blessing Peggy with good news about her sister, give Peggy and all her extended family peace in the homegoing of their dear loved one who came to know You before he left this world. What a joyful knowledge to know that those who know You will one day be reunited in Heaven.

Father, I am so in awe (I think I've said that before) of You and what You are doing in my grandson's life. You have definitely placed a calling upon his life and I just pray that You will provide him with the knowledge he needs, surround him with people who can help him and lift him up and give him the guidance that he needs. Thank You for the conifdence he has in us and is not afraid to call as he did this afternoon. Just cover him with Your love and protection against the enemy. Our grandson is already experiencing the fact that satan wants to stop him, but You are guiding him in the direction he needs to go and giving him the knowledge of what he is up against. I thank You for blessing him. He's only 18 but he already knows so much about You and has received gifts from you to help others realize they need Jesus in their life. Watch over him as he travels back to school Wednesday. Oh how I thank you for sparing his life when he had the wreck. I believe You have great things for him to do that he hasn't even thought of. Just cover him with Your wings and empower him with Your Word, Father, and I pray this all in the name of Your Son, Jesus. I love You so much and thank You for what You are doing in my daughter's family. Bless them I pray. Amen.

Denise said...

I give You much praise Father, for the assurance You gave dear Peggy from her sister. Now, she knows that her dear uncle John is in heaven, with both her earthly father, and her heavenly Father.

Denise said...

Father God, I lift up before Your throne, Alice's grandson. He loves You so much, and has a calling upon his life. I ask that You take Him under Your full protection from satan. Thank You Father. Amen.

Denise said...

Father, my heart is really heavy tonight for my sister Vicky. She had to go today for a hearing test. They told her that she has over a fifty percent hearing loss in her left ear, and a sixty four percent hearing loss in her right ear. They said, if she does not get hearing aids, she is going to toally go deaf. Even, by knocking off a thousand dollars with a coupon they would give her, it would still cost her over five thousand dollars. Father, she cannot afford that. Please intervene on her behalf, she loves You so much. Please let her continue to be able to hear Father. Help her, that is the cry of my heart. Thank You, I love You dear Father. Amen.

Cathy said...

Father, Thank you that you hear and answer our prayer requests. Bless dear Denise who always prays so faithfully for others. She and Alice need your healing touch. Bless Peggy and her family, Lord, comfort them. Help our sister, Karen with your peace and guidance. Thank you, Father, for healing, provision, comfort, protection, guidance and for all of our blessings. Heal my dear, sweet loved one, strengthen him I pray. In Jesus name, Amen

Peggy said...

Father, I stand with my dear sister Denise for her real sister
Vicky that so needs a miracle from you. Restore her hearing in Jesus' name. By His stripes Vicky is healed. Through the power of His name and His blood, Vicky receives whatever way You want to do this. You are Vicky's healer! You are Vicky's Provider! You are Jehovah Jireh! Nothing is impossible with You!
Father, Vicky is stretched to her limits and needs You to move mightily in her life. Move the mountains, LORD and we cry out to You for favor upon our dear sister Vicky. Please bless her to be able to hear or provide an answer for the expensive hearing aids. Whatever You will,be done but we ask this in Jesus Name.

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.
