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.

"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, 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.
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 REQUEST ~ For the Missions of Hope, Kenya for all monetary, physical and spiritual needs to be met, for enlargement of territory and an increase in prayer and financial sponsors.

Father God, I ask a special blessing upon the Missions of Hope Kenya. I pray for enlargement of territory through new and faithful donors. I pray that the ongoing monetary needs would be met and that the volunteers would stand in faith and pray for all needs. I pray too for an enlargement of faithful prayer partners and donors.

I pray for a special blessing on Jonah for his own personal needs to be met. Give him strength as he nears the finish line of his studies and make a way where there seems to be none. I also ask for your special favour on Elvis, Linet and Edwin. Lord your heart aches over all these dear ones and the needs they represent. I pray your mercy and grace upon them and the favour of men and women who read and hear about them. I ask that you help us to help them. In the precious name of Jesus I ask, amen.

Praying for: Israel ~ Speak Peace to the People

Scripture: “Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret — it leads only to evil. For evil men will be cut off, but those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land.” (Psalms 37:7-9)

Prayer: Lord, You are the sovereign God over all creation. In You we live and move and have our being. Every breath we take is a gift of grace from You. Apart from You we can do nothing, and all power is in the palm of Your hand.

I lift up the people in Israel, and I ask that You would deliver them from envy and vengeance. Break the cycle of wickedness that perpetuates itself through anger. Give them the grace to let offenses go, and stamp a spirit of forgiveness on their hearts.

I speak to the people of influence in Israel in Jesus name, “Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him, do not become angry when wicked schemes succeed. For evil men will be cut off, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.”

Add your faith to that word and plant it in your heart, you will see the Lord do something. I would like to call your attention to something very important today. You have been summoned to, ‘Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.’ (Psalm 122) In this moment when so much of human history is in a rumble, or at the very least in transition, your prayers for God’s manifest blessing over Israel are vital.

You will find a whole section on Prayercentral dedicated for praying for Israel:

Some of you may just pray today, and below you will see a prayer where you can join your brothers and sisters around the world and pray for the peace in Jerusalem in the next few minutes. However, the Lord is also calling forth a number of you to TAKE THIS UP and enter into His Presence for a season with a burning prayer burden for Israel. Listen, He IS calling YOU.

Prayer Central - Kathleen Dillard said...

“Take your eyes off yourself and reset your focus. Take your eyes off your mountain and turn them to your mountain-maker. Take your eyes off your hardship and refocus, past the chaos, beyond the veil, where My sovereignty reigns over all. In the press, in the whirlwind, in the shifting sand, I have things to tell you that will usurp the ‘usurping one’, that will calm the storm, and will place the mountain into a swallowing sea. Turn to Me. Step back, step away, and turn to Me!”


“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” -James 1:5

“By wisdom a house is built and through understanding it is established.” -Proverbs 24:3

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.” -Hebrews 12:1-2

These two from Prayer Central are submitted by Peggy to here but written by Kathleen Dillard. This is from "Word for Today" (21)

Also here is the link for Praying for Israel ... I noticed that neither link worked above.
Being a Peace of His Plan is where the above is taken from ... if you go there you can click on the part that says "I prayed"

Lift up your voice now to His throne of grace:

Prayer for Syria~

“Oh, God of the nations, please have mercy on Your Body in Syria. This ancient church is in grave danger of extinction in the land of Paul and Ananias. The nations press for one outcome, but we plead for Your intervention and Your outcome. Only You know the truth in the midst of deception, and only You can sort things out in this confusing situation. May You expose all darkness and deception and let Your Kingdom come in the name of Jesus. I bind the enemy who comes to kill, steal and destroy in Jesus name. I ask that life, light, justice and peace would be released and established. Grant escapes from death. Have mercy Lord, let angels go to intervene, for as it is written ‘the anger of man does not accomplish the righteousness of God.’ Let your will be done and let your kingdom come in Syria in a fresh measure in this season of travail. In Jesus’ name.”

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.
