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.

MAY PRAYER REQUESTS

"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 comment and response system. That'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, let them know that you are lifting them in prayer with us here.
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 encourage 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.

This blog post is only for 
PRAYER REQUESTS 

please use other posts to write other prayers.

Your PRAYERS are always welcome!

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
made possible with the new feature of 
REPLY

When you add a PRAYER REQUEST, please
write PRAYER REQUEST first
or just 
add your prayer request in the 
LINKY

If you are praying for that prayer request
please use the REPLY right under that prayer request.

Thank you in the name of Jesus
let us pray

Peggy said...

Heavenly Father, On this day, May 3rd, our National Day of Prayer,that America really needs, in order to humble and return to One Nation UNDER GOD, I ask that YOU help us mobilize prayer in America and to encourage personal repentance and righteousness in the culture.

But my heart is so overwhelmed by the needs of my dear little sister Denise...that I can't even think or focus on the many needs of the USA, our leadership, the authority You give and take, the many blessings this nation has taken for granted... this means nothing to me
in comparison to the suffering and pain my dear little Denise (and so many others are having... cancer, diabetes, etc.) but all of these diseases and the problems of this nation, are nothing to You, You have all power over them. You are greater! And greatly to be praised, honored and adored! We adore You and we love You!

Our sweet, precious sister, Denise has
an appointment today and May 8th with her neurologist, but we have placed her in Your safe and capable hands!
Give her peace and comfort as she has this cat scan. Be with her and wrap Your loving arms around her to fill her with Your serenity, healing power
and a melody in her heart to sing so she will not fear or tremble. Denise is Your daughter, she belongs to You and lives for You! Please hear the many prayers being said for her and heal Denise in Jesus Name. Take away her pain because Jesus already took the suffering for her. By His stripes Denise is healed. Artery, we speak directly to you, as you flow to her brain and command you to open in the authority of Jesus... 100% blocked we ask to be removed in Jesus Name, not just lower the blockage but open as You designed it to be; blood sugar levels be lowered in Jesus Name, give Denise the wisdom to watch what she eats and help her to get this level under control and much lower, to not cause further problems for her, for You are her Healer, her Sustainer, her Wisdom, her Daily Bread, we place her in Your more than capable hands. We trust You and believe Your promises in Your Word. Denise walks in Your victory! There is nothing too difficult for you or impossible. You are in control over Denise. Denise surrenders her health to You. She gives thanks to You for her brain today in her TT, hear her heart and allow her heart to beat in unison with You and speak life into her entire body, from the top of her head all the way through her limbs. Restore her feelings as You take away the numbness
in her legs. Help her speech, memory and ability to walk. Thank You that she accepts that since her stroke, her brain and life have been changed and she is embracing her new brain without any pity parties. We ask that You hear the cries of her heart, relief from all pain and her last statement on TT, for her husband and her to have many more memories to make together.

God grant Denise the serenity to accept the things she cannot change, the courage to change and do all she can and Your wisdom to know the difference and also for those medically advising her... May she live
each day to the fullest, enjoying one moment at a time, accept hardship as the pathway to peace... taking, trusting and surrendering to Your will! May Denise be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. (paraphrased Serenity Prayer)

Peggy said...

(continuation and finalization of the rest of my prayer that was too long and I got a warning of 4,096 character limit)

We commit Denise to Your loving care, encourage her with better results, comfort her with the best decisions, give her peace in any decision that she must make as regards her health, change any thing that she needs, guide her and her medical professionals and her husband to make all the best choices for prolonged life! We love Denise and need her here! Denise is more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus... she can do all things through Christ who gives her strength. Fill her with Your strength, love and courage to keep on keeping it on.

Denise prays so much for everyone so we ask that You remember her at this time and return a double portion of blessing to her. Let her sense Your sweet presence and the many prayers, love and thoughts we hold for her as
she faces another day. We humbly bow before You, and in Your authority we receive all You have for Denise... in Jesus beloved Name, we pray, thanking You, praising You, giving You glory for who You are as Healer and what You are doing and going to do for Denise for Your glory...

I come and agreement with all the other prayers here as well and will pray for them tomorrow in my day of prayer with You, but today Denise is my focus... thank You!

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I stand in agreement with Peggy's prayer regarding out nation and especially our sweet friend Denise. You know her by name, Father, and You know her needs so much better than we do. I just ask humbly that You will supply every need in Denise's life, be with her as she has her Cat Scan. I pray for good answers to all our prayers for her and others as well.

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.
