A Blessed & Happy New Year



... let's start the year right in prayer for one another ...

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.

MARCH PRAYER REQUESTS ~ PART I.

"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.

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.

In the "PRAYER LIFTED TO THE THRONE of GOD":

PLEASE WRITE YOUR PRAYER, or PRAYER REQUEST(the place that would normally read comments, here will read "PRAYERS LIFTED TO THE THRONE of GOD") so just add your prayer request or prayer there, but be sure to WRITE "PRAYER REQUEST" first so we can easily spot the prayer needs to pray with you or for the one who you are adding that needs prayer. Thank you so much!


Or you may add on the LINKY (if it's here and works for you) whichever YOU PREFER or BOTH! Let me know which one you like best.


IMPORTANT (another new thing)
I also have changed the comments to be "embedded" rather than a "pop out window" which includes a REPLY part. So if you are leaving a PRAYER for a specific PRAYER REQUEST, I'd like you to click REPLY right under that person's PRAYER REQUEST and add your specific prayer for them. If you are praying a general PRAYER for all than you can just add as another comment. OK?



This blog post is only for PRAYER REQUESTS, 

please use other posts to write other prayers.
When you leave a prayer request, 
please come back to read the prayer(s) for you.
Hopefully you will find them right under your 
PRAYER REQUEST


I HAVE ADDED ANOTHER
PRAYER REQUEST
post

for March since this
is only the first week and we are 
almost to 50(comments will close then)
so for a continuation 
please go to


MARCH PRAYER REQUESTS
Part II
or whichever is the most recent.


Comments will be deleted if they are not in a PRAYER for someone or a PETITION for prayer.

Father, I thank You for this place to come and talk with You about the needs of others. You are worthy of our praise for the prayers you have answered and those You are going to answer.
I love you.

PRAYER REQUEST - I have an appointment on May 4th to have an MRI of my back and then see the doctor afterwards. Also please keep praying for my grandson, he has grown so close to God and is experiencing gifts that he needs help with. Father I just ask that you put someone in my grandson's life that can help him with the questions he has. Thank You, Father, for using him. You are so awesome, and I just give You all praise, honor and glory for what You are doing with my grandson and his friends.

Heavenly Fatherm I also ask for the healing of Denise's relative who has hearing loss in both ears. I know how she feels because I have the same thing. Your will be done in all of these requests, in the name of Your Son, Jeus. Amen.

Denise said...

Father, Please be with Alice when she has her MRI, and then sees the doctor. Give the doctor wisdom to help her. I ask that You take any pain that she is feeling away. Also, watch over her dear grandson, guide him to some spiritual leaders that can help answer his questions. Thank You Father.

Prayer Request (2) Heavenly Father, I come to You tonight asking that You would strengthen the family of my mother's last brother. He has been unresponsive for several weeks and bedfast for about 5 weeks. He has emphysema and agent organge in his legs. Give my Aunt peace and his 5 boys and their families. He told me, Father, the last time I talked with him that he was ready to meet You. He served in three wars and has been sick for sometime. He lives in Colorado and I have not seen him for a very long time but Father, You know how much I love him (he was my hero). He is next to the youngest of 13 of which my mother was the oldest and she dearly loved her brothers and prayed for them every day. He will be missed by his family but look forward to being reunited when we all make the journey to the other side. Bless this dear family, lift them up and if any of his children do not know You, I pray they will realize how much they need You.

Also, Father, I ask that You be with my dear cousin on Tuesday when she has a lumpectomy on one of her breast. I pray this is the only one the doctor fines and that she will recover without any problems. She loves You so much and does a lot for her family, friends and her church. Be with her husband as he is not well either. Bless them Father, just put Your lovinly arms around them and let them know You are with them in the name of Jesus. Thank You, Father, for all You have done in all our lives. I just praise Your name and give You all the honor and glory for who You are and for Your many, many blessings. Bless Your name, Father, bless Your name. Amen.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I come to You this morning with a very sad heart. My uncle did not live through the night. Be with his family and comfort their hearts, especially my aunt. Thy will be done in each of their lives and if any don't know You may they realize how much they need You in their hearts. I pray this all in the name of Jesus.

From the Heart said...

Father, I lift up Peggy's cousin to You and ask that You touch her body and remove every trace of leukemia in the name of Jesus. May her test results show this. Give her comfort in the loss of her father.

Denise said...

Father, I lift up Peggy's cousin Shirley, as she just finished her chemo for leukemia. Please, totally heal her from this disease. She just lost her dad, comfort her as she mourns Father. Amen.

Denise said...

Father, please be with my friend Ann, she will be having a heart stress test this week. Please let the results be normal, take care of her Father. I love You. Amen.

Cathy said...

Thank you, Father, for my dear friend, Denise. Please answer all of her precious prayer requests for others. Heal her, Lord, protect and bless her and her family. In Jesus name, Amen

Cathy said...

Father, I am in agreement with Denise for our friend, Alice and her grandson. Thank you, Lord. You know I prayed for all of these prayer requests before, but somehow they did not show up here.

Cathy said...

Amen, Lord, comfort the family, in Jesus name.

Cathy said...

Yes, Lord, please heal her from this disease, and comfort her and the family. God bless Peggy, care for her and meet all of her needs, in Jesus name.

Cathy said...

Father, I am agreeing with Alice for all of these needs. Thank you, Lord.

Cathy said...

Father, be with her during this test, and let the results be normal. Amen

Denise said...

Father, I have another appointment with my gynecologist tomorrow. She will be telling me whether I will be having surgery, or not. Please have Your way, and will in this situation. I love You. Amen.

Denise said...

Father, My aunt, who is 83 years old, has recently fallen twice. She is badly bruised, and scratched up. She also broke her little finger, and when they were doing tests on her, they found a blockage in her neck. Please watch over her, and protect her Father. I love You. Amen.

From the Heart said...

Father, please be with Denise tomorrow as she goes to see her GYN. I pray that she will get a good report and will not have to have surgery, in the name of Jesus

From the Heart said...

Father, I ask, in the name of Jesus that You heal Denise's friend and I pray her test will be normal.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I also ask for the protection of Denise's aunt and healing of the blockage in her neck.

Peggy said...

Heavenly Father,

With heavy hearts with lift up Alice, her aunt (in particular) and the entire family. Surround them with the love and comfort that only You can bring to their grief and loss! Be Comforter and Healer.
I am so sorry that I arrived here too late to pray with Alice for her uncle. Console her and carry all her burdens, please.

I stand with her also for her cousin this day, that the lump that was found will be the only one as they carefully remove it today. We declare that You are her Great Physician and You guide the hands and the result. We place her in Your hands and rely on You completely for her recovery and healing in Jesus Name.

Denise said...

Father, Please be with Alice's family, as they are mourning the loss of her dear uncle. Comfort his wife, as only You can. Thank You Father.

Peggy said...

Father, We ask that you be with Alice for her MRI of her back. If it be Your will we ask that You take away all the pain and problem so that this would not be necessary.

We lift up her grandson to You for continual protection and guidance. Send someone to be his mentor and may the Holy Spirit be His guide and continuing to lead him in the gifts he's been given. We thank You and give You all praise and glory... There is nothing too difficult or impossible with You! He is an open vessel, we thank You for using him. Answer his questions as You guide him, lead him closely... and keep him from all harm as the enemy is probably very upset. Put a hedge of protection around him and let the anointing continue to fall in Jesus Name.

Peggy said...

Father, I too stand in agreement with all of the prayers. I come here especially for my sisters in Christ and lift Denise, Alice and Cathy as well as their current situations to You. You are their Heavenly Father and You love them so much. Care for each one and hear their prayers.

I ask in the authority of Christ, to heal Denise and prevent any surgery... which she probably is not up to having. Guide her GYN to give her other alternatives and direction. Father, You know the intimate details and we ask that understanding and compassion surround Denise and her Lovebug. What You are able to do is far more than we can think or imagine. We ask for Your hand and Your sovereign will. Nothing is too difficult. You are Denise's Healer and Physician. We lay her in Your more than capable arms and trust You in this. We ask for wisdom and patience for everyone involved. Healing takes time and understanding.
We love You Father! We are Yours and we surrender to Your will and that You have the best plan for us. Thank You for all You have done in Denise!

Thank You for the prayers of each one of my precious sisters supporting each other and me and my family also.

To You be all glory, honor and praise.

Father, I thank you for this daughter of yours who created a place of prayer.

First I pray for a positive result in my blood tests and success in managing my blood sugar levels. I pray too to grow from strength to strength so that I can do all that you have called me to do. I pray for Edwin over in Kenya. Lord he is so young and he is dealing with leukemia. I pray complete healing for him. I pray that he will have favour of men as he undergoes chemotherapy and Lord that somehow you will make a way for the finances he needs. I pray for Jonah who is helping him. Give him strength and favour too and help him with all his responsibilities. I thank you for what you have done for both of them so far and give praise and glory to your name. In the name of Jesus' I ask all things and believe that you will answer. I give you praise and glory for everything and ask you to bless each and every one who will pray for these requests. In Jesus' name I ask, amen.

Lord you comfort those who mourn and grieve. I ask you to comfort this family as they go through their grieving process. Be the gentle comfort to them as you have been to me. I pray that others around them would minister to them in practical ways as the days go forward and show their love in ways that are needed. In Jesus' name I ask, amen.

Joyful said...

Oh Father, I stand in agreement that you touch this dear one and remove every last trace of leukemia. Precious Lord, I ask for your healing virtue to flow through every cell of Peggy's cousin to bring life and healing and be with her as she grieves. Hold her in your palm. I ask in Jesus' name, Amen.

God you said that we should cast all our burdens on you because you care. I pray you would lighten their burden Lord and give them joy. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.

Joyful said...

Lord thank you for this dear one who has a heart for others. I pray your angels to go before her to deal with the MRI and to give her good news! I pray that every crooked path will be made straight, that any anxieties and fears will be removed and that your overflowing health and healing will be made manifest in her for a living testimony of your goodness. I pray too for her grandson whom you have gifts. I pray you will keep him and guide him and give him the right mentors Father as he strives to live a life for you and be blessing to others. In Jesus' name I ask and pray and believe for answered prayer, amen.

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.
