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.

For me: weight loss, blood sugar control and energy
For Ted: healing from colon cancer
For Edwin: healing from leukemia and support for travel and medical outpatient costs
For orphans: donors for food and school needs
For Jonah: new donors, complete thesis and get good grades, strength and energy

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I ask that You bless Joyful and give her a plan that she can easily follow to lose weight which will bring her blood sugar under control and give her more energy, in the name of Jesus. Your Word says,"ask and we shall receive." I'm asking on benefit of Joyful that she will receive what You have in store for her in the name of Jesus.

From the Heart said...

Father I continue in prayer for the requests of Joyful. I pray that you will heal Ted of colon cancer and and Edwin for healing of leukemia and the support that he needs for travel and outpatient costs. I pray that You would lay on the hearts of people to help with food and school needs for the orphans. I pray that you will supply all of Jonah's needs. I thank You Father for all that you are going to do in the name of Jesus.

From the Heart said...

A prayer request. Father I pray for those in mine and dh's extended families who do not know You, that their eyes will be opened to the fact that they need You in their lives. There are two of dh's extended members that I boldly ask that You do to them as You did Saul on the road to Damascus. I truly believe it will take that to reach their hearts Father. One is an alcoholic and the other one's mind has been brainwashed about You. I plead the blood of Jesus for the salvation of these two precious souls and all the others who are not living for You. Praise Your holy name, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I also pray for our country that You will help us take back what the devil has stolen from us in the name of Jesus. Praise God, praise God, praise God, hallelujah, thank You Father, I love You so much and want always to do your will. Bless Your name, bless Your name.

Joyful said...

Lord I pray for Alice and her dear DH's loved ones, specifically those that need salvation. I stand in the gap with Alice and believe for these dear ones to be saved from alcohol and brainwashing against you. I plead your blood over these dear ones and any other unsaved loves ones of people reading these prayer requests. Lord save them all. You know them by name and you know who you can use and what you can do to speak to their hearts. Lord I pray and ask in Jesus' name, Amen.

Cathy said...

Father, I am in agreement with Alice for our sister, Joyful. Amen

Cathy said...

Thank you, Father, for answering all of these needs, we pray, in the name of Jesus.

Cathy said...

Father, I am in agreement with Alice for the salvation of her loved ones. Lord, draw all of our loved ones to you, we pray. Have mercy on our country, forgive us of our sins, and save our country, Lord. We love you, Lord and praise your Holy name. In Jesus name, Amen.

Ephesians4Ministry-Prime TimeTGIF said...

Dear God, Today I was reminded of how many people are suffering through cancer. I have lost loved ones to this ravaging disease...and I am thankful they are with you because they were Christians, believers whose trust was in the Risen Savior. ("To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.") I have friends and fellow brothers and sisters in Christ who are now facing that battle. Some will receive healing and more years on this earth. Others will receive permanent healing and be with you in heaven. I pray for each and every one, that you will give them abundant grace and mercy and blessings through it all. It is when we are weak, that we most recognize that you are strong. I pray for relief from pain, for strength to endure, for joy and happiness in the journey. I pray for the sick ones and for their loved ones. This is an extremely emotional time...and a spiritual time. Carry them, Lord. May their lives and their testimonies shine for you everywhere they go. Thank you for the healing you bring. Thank you for being there. Thank you for loving. Thank you for meeting needs. May you receive glory and honor through it all. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I lift up Amy Wyatt, her mother and family who have lost a very dear member of Amy's family, her Dad. Please give them comfort as only You can do. May they feel Your loving arms around them as you hold them and comfort them. Put people around them that can give them comfort also in the name of Jesus.

Cathy said...

Father, I pray in agreement with the beautiful prayer by Ephesians4Ministry. Thank you, Lord, that you hear and answer our prayers. In Jesus name, Amen.

Cathy said...

Father, comfort Amy and her family, and give them your peace, in the name of Jesus, Amen.

I pray too Lord that you would reach him with your love and compassion and teach him the way that he would walk while he still has time here on earth.

You see the promise and the future you had for him and how the enemy is trying to rip it from him. Lord I ask for a miraculous turnaround. I pray that you would speak to Dominick's heart and give him a future and a hope once again. I pray for those around him to know how to comfort him and encourage him. I pray for well wishers who can assist him also to continue in school.

Lord and last but not least I pray for Elvis who is going to medical school. Lord his country is in dire need of medical personnel and he has no earthly father to help him realize his dreams. I pray the outreach I've done will be fruitful Father and that somehow you will make a way for a donor to come forward to help Elvis continue with his years of education.

Dear Heavenly Father, You are in control of Your world. I pray that corruption be exposed to the American People and that somehow justice be served. I pray for a better economy, peace, hope, and the right kind of change for America! Weed out those who are not speaking the truth and are not honest when speaking to the American people. I pray for peace in the Middle East and for Israel! Dear Heavenly Father take all those who would cause terrorism, corruption and harm out of all governments. I ask this in Jesus Name. Amen


As the Lord leads, please pray for the USA natural disasters and so much more:

For protection and safety on the part of firefighters and hot shot crews in the Western U.S.
For families and businesses who have sustained losses, and for their recovery, physical, material and emotional.
About the nation being just at the "front end" of hurricane and wildfire seasons.
That the Lord would bring rain to drought-stricken areas, and calm the wind and seas in the Atlantic and Gulf.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father I agree in prayer with Annonymous concerning our country. I ask that You weed out the people who should not be in anyway in control of anything to do with our country. I ask Father, that You turn the hearts of people to You, that somehow they will come to the knowledge of who they are behind and those they should not be behind. This world belongs to You, Father. I pray that You will stop the enemy completely from control of people and their eyes will be opened to the truth and this world will look to You who owns
it all. You are our Heavenly Father, Jesus is our soon coming King. Open the eyes of the unbelievers. I ask this all Father in the name
of Your precious Son, Jesus.

I command the enemy to take his hands off my computer now in the name of Jesus. You have no authority here are over me. Praise the Holy name of Jesus. Praise God for the Sweet Holy Spirit and the gift of tongues to talk directly to the Father. Halleluiah, halleluiah, halleluiah, praise God from whom all blessings flow. Bless Your name Jesus, bless Your name and thank You for the answers to all the prayers prayed here at the Lighthouse. Amen and Amen.

his 5 boys, their wives, and all of their children, in the name of Jesus. If they have to evacuate please give them traveling mercy in the name of Jesus.

FAther I thank you for everything you've done for all of us who come here to enter prayers for ourselves and others. I thank you for those answers to prayer which you have given and I thank you that you are still in the business of answering prayer.

I pray for those that need a healing touch and those that need salvation to receive it. I ask for those that need emotional, physical and spiritual help to receive it too. For those that are struggling financially, I ask for your divine help.

Now specifically I pray for a young man who is just undergoing cancer checkup for suspected skin cancer. I pray that you would comfort him and bring it to nothing. I ask for you to comfort and be with him and let him feel the encouragement by your Holy Spirit and the words and love of others. Let him feel and no that he is not alone and that others are praying for him. I pray that you would also meet his every financial need and help him as he continues in his studies and prepares for a move this month.

I continue to pray for Edwin who needs healing from leukemia and financial assistance to pay for travel and treatment. I pray for Elvis who needs a donor and finances to continue his university studies. I pray a positive answer for JK also with a financial concern.

Lord I pray finally for Ted who will undergo colon cancer surgery on Friday. I pray you will be with the doctors and nurses and give them wisdom and precision as they operate. I pray you will be with Ted and all his family and give them peace. I pray Ted will come through the surgery with flying colours and that he will heal well.

Lord I come to you with so many petitions and I thank you that you are there to hear them all. I love you Lord and I give you thanks and praise for all your many blessings. In Jesus' name I pray, 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.
