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.

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.

pray to be delivered from a loan-shark

June 26, 2012 9:47 PM

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I pray for the prayer request from Anonymouse, that they will be delivered from a loan-shark. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Father, You are all powerful and care about Your children and I believe You will take care of this person.

Also I lift up the people in Colorado who were involved in the disaster yesterday. Comfort the hearts of those who lost loved ones and heal those who are being taken care of or in the hospital. May all who viewed this in our country humble themselves and pray so that God will answer our prayers. He loves everyone and wants us to accept Jesus as our Saviour, then our land will be healed. Thank you Father, for those who respond to Your call. May this tradgedy turn our eyes upon You in the name of Jesus.

Joyful said...

Lord I pray with From the heart for this couple. You know the deep desires of their heart. Bless them with a child to love.

Thank you too for being with FTH's niece through the surgery. Continue to be with her through the healing process and hear the prays for salvation for her brother. Praise your name Lord. Amen.

Joyful said...

Lord I pray for this one who you know by name. Deliver him/her from this loan shark. Only you know the entire situation. I pray Father for a hedge of protection around them and for your supernatural ability to make a way for them through this ordeal. In the precious name of Jesus, I ask you to lead and guide this person and give them your wisdom. Amen.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father I haven't come here to ask You for anything but to give a praise report. Three days last week I had ringing in my ears and then it would change to something like wind blowing. It would go away during the day but started back in the evenings. Friday morning I started with all of the above and then my ear started huring really bad. DH but some eardrops he had in but it did not seem to work. I felt so bad I layed down. Of course during all of this I kept asking God for healing. After laying down (it wasn't very long) I noticed the hurting started getting less and less. I got up and the pain and all the other stuff went away and has not come back. Thank You Father for healing my ear problems. I still need a healing of some hearing loss and I know You will take care of me. Praise God for His healing power. I just wanted to shout and run around telling everyone. I did tell a few that I knew were praying. I have been through a lot and I know God spared my life twice but I was not aware of it until after all the anesthesia had worn off. This was something I knew actually happened. Thank You Jesus, thank You. Amen.

Father, thank you for hearing and answering our prayers. Thank you that you are always with us and will never leave nor forsake us. Heal my dear loved ones, Lord, and all who need healing in these prayer requests, in Jesus name, Amen

It's Time to Pray


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.
