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.

BLOGGERS PRAYER PROJECT
Since I'm not available online as much as in the past but really believe in "praying for one another", I'd like us at the Lighthouse of Prayer to commit to praying for 31 bloggers (or more) if the Spirit leads you. You certainly can do your own on your own blog, too!
I've decided to do this a bit different than the Project and I will start the list out with people who already come here and pray, then add as led. I'm going to put a LINKY... and add their names and link to their blog... and if you add anyone, link to their blog not yours.
Pray for each sister in Christ individually, in other words, don't lump them all together. Each day choose a new blogger on the list and leave a prayer for them. Add any blogger as you are led by the Spirit...
Barbie at My Freshly Brewed Life has a wonderful example for Day 1. Please click on the button or visit Dawn Modern Day Disciple at Beneath the Surface to find out more and follow their specifics for this Blogger Project.
I almost like this better than Prayer Requests. We all need prayer support whether we are facing a trial, battle or difficult circumstance, or celebrating a victory for praise, and just our daily walk could use a blessing through prayer which never hurts.
Only PRAYERS (no comments please as usual) in the "Prayers Lifted to the Throne of God"! Let's pass this on (go grab the button code from Dawn) so hopefully more PRAY and join us to cover Blogland!
Not sure what the LINKY will say but put the Blogger's name as (Title or whatever) and Link to their blog (not yours). You can add your own blog if you pass through here and you're not on the list yet (we won't know you added yourself)... hopefully we'll get to know you as we pray for you.
PRAYER REQUESTS are different and FOLLOW in the next post still. However, I really want us to just lift up other bloggers and let them know you're praying for them, too, even if there is nothing in particular...
Just pick any BLOGGER you know well and add your prayer. You're welcome to add any blogger as you're led with your prayer for that blogger. You certainly can pray for a blogger without leaving a prayer but it'd be nice to write out a prayer for each one to see. We are not doing Day 1, Day 2...etc. but I do hope each day, you pray for a new blogger and we add more... don't worry about the photos of the blogger, it's the blogger that counts... :0) and praying for each blogger...
PRAYER for Our Nation
This was shared in an email from the Presidential Prayer Team:
Declaration of Independence Signer
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.
