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 

Please use other posts to write other prayers 
Your PRAYERS are always welcome here!

When you leave a prayer request, 
please come back to read the prayer(s) for you.

Hopefully you will find them right under your 
made possible with the new feature of 

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

If at all possible, use the LINKY for your Prayer Request, if it does not accept it or you have problems, is why I wrote the following, this was not suppose to be the main choice, but an alternative!

When you add a PRAYER REQUEST in comments, if need be, please write PRAYER REQUEST first or please just add your prayer request in the LINKY!

Thank you in the name of Jesus
let us pray

Because of the lengthy comments, the Linky will be continued in another blog post on the 15th of the month, but the 'prayer comments' will not. Sorry. Hope this works better (except for the 'prayers lifted to God's Throne' in the previous comments, which I can't figure out what else to do, other than link to it).

Prayers ONLY please, comments are deleted.

PRAYER REQUEST - For friends
~ BG who is sick with a terrible flu and needs to work.
~ friend JH who is undergoing biopsy for cancer testing
~ friend BB who is awaiting confirmation of radiation treatments for cancer.
~ June, wife of blogging friend who is undergoing chemo but her neutrophils are consistently too low (and strength for her husband).
~ For young Edwin in Kenya who has leukemia.

God be with these people who are afflicted. Show your self strong on their behalf. Minister to them in their quiet time and let them know how much you love them. Lord I ask that others would reach out to them all and encourage them and their families and loved ones and that others would stand in the gap and pray for them.

Lord, life and death are your hands. I ask that you heal these people now for your hand is not too short and your love is not lacking. At least one, BB is not saved. Lord I pray for her salvation too. Though I've witnessed to her in the past, you know her response. I pray you would speak to her heart now in the stillness of the night and draw her to your bosom. I pray too that you would give me wisdom as to how to bring comfort to her and give me the right words to say at all times.

I ask too that you heal Edwin. Lord his family is in desperate straits. I pray not only for complete healing for Edwin for material help and spiritual support for him and his family. I thank you so much for everything you have done so far.

In the precious name of Jesus I ask for all these healings and helps on behalf of your children. 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.
