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.

A cord of three strands is not quickly broken"      
Ecclesiastes 4:12

Daily Prayers of Germaine Copeland

*I can't believe another month has gone by... I'm sorry that I have not been able to update the comment section daily or weekly but I'm working on adding all the prayers from April. Nonetheless, if you are visiting daily, or weekly... they are here but change so if you miss a day, it won't be here the next day unless I add it to the comments...
"DAILY PRAYER"
comes from
Germaine Copeland

"Prayers that Avail Much"


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

Clearly, I could not agree MORE!!!

Let's fill our lives with prayer and if you don't think you know how to pray just say the ones that Germaine writes and learn by looking at how she takes the scripture verses and turns them into prayers. You too can do this. There is no wrong or right way to pray, it's simply talking to God.


NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER ~ May 3rd

* I am so sorry that I did not get this posted in time for May 3rd so you could join in PRAYING for Our Nation but it's never too late
NDOP

National Day of Prayer – May 3rd

The mission of the National Day of Prayer is to mobilize prayer in America and to encourage personal repentance and righteousness in the culture.
The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.

We so need to PRAY as a NATION for OUR NATION, for our leadership, for our appointed and soon to be elected officials and the current ones as well as so many current situations in our country. We need to humble ourselves before the Lord, from the top of our nation to each individual believer, we need to rise up and be responsible to praying for God's authority over our authorities and laws.


Psalm 33:12

There are so many great links for today. I really love the
AUDIO PRAYER GUIDE on this page (to the right) and the one above it for I Pray Radio (on the air through May 3rd)



National Day of Prayer

PRAYER WALL (beautiful prayers that you can read/pray and click to let them know you prayed along with each one) Praise God for the many BOLD prayers being written and said!

2012 PRAYER FOR OUR NATION by Dr. David Jeremiah (download available) from National Day of Prayer 61st Annual Observance

Heavenly Father,

Every good gift and perfect gift comes from You. You are a faithful God and Your mercy endures forever.

You have promised to bless the nation that trusts in You.  Our currency proclaims “In God We Trust,” but in our culture we are far from You.
In the words of the prophet Daniel, “We have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments.”
We come before You once more, seeking Your forgiveness and mercy.  You, O God, are our only hope… Hear our prayer and, for Your honor’s sake, shine Your face upon this nation.
Give our leaders the desire to seek Your wisdom and the courage to follow Your guidance… and watch over the men and women of our armed forces as they sacrifice for the cause of freedom.
We give You thanks for all You have done for us, and we earnestly pray that You will help us become, once again, a nation whose God is the Lord.
In the name of Your Son, and our Savior, we pray this prayer.

*source of desktop Bible verse: Christian Free Wall Paper

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. (Andrew Murray)

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.
