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.

APRIL PRAYER REQUESTS ~ 2nd half

"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.

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 
but
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 
PRAYER REQUEST
made possible with the new feature of 
REPLY

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

When you add a PRAYER REQUEST in comments, 
please
write PRAYER REQUEST first

Thank you in the name of Jesus
let us pray

God, thank you for your comforting promise that you will never leave nor forsake me. In times like today, I need that assurance. You are my Rock and my Salvation. I trust you, even when I feel like I cannot trust anyone else. I look up to you, because I know you will always be there for me, even if the whole world forsakes me. Thank you, so much, for your love and dependability. You are awesome! With love and appreciation in my heart, amen.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I come in agreement with Denise's prayers and I have moved Alice's following prayer here also, to join together as a cord of 3 strands that cannot be broken, to hold each other and Cathy also, Joyful, Pia and anyone else that comes in one accord to pray for these petitions, bringing them before You, trusting Your will and that You will hear and answer them from hearts that care so much for these dear ones. Please grant us Your divine favor over each one. Have mercy on us O Lord, hear the cries for our loved ones for healing, salvation, provision, protection, comfort, strength, and Your loving kindness and grace!

[Alice's last prayer]

Heavenly Father I come to You with a very heavy heart for my dear friend Caren. Help her Lord as her mother is brought home along with Hospice, to feel Your loving arms around Caren, her mother, and her family. I know that You can heal her mother and if that is Your will I pray that You will do it in the name of Jesus.

I agree in prayer with Denise regarding her friends. You know exactly what they need, and please bless Denise. She has such a tender heart for everyone and a dependable prayer warrior. Thank You, Father for all the friends You have given me here and at other places.

I also ask that You will heal my dh's brother who is having to take a very expensive pill for the spots in his lungs. He had been taken off that pill for a week because he is having so many reactions. He is a faithful servant for You, Father. I pray You will continue to comfort him and give him peace and hope, in the name of Jesus.

Father, I also ask that the blood work I had a few weeks ago will not show anything serious in the name of Jesus. Let me feel Your presence as I wait another week before getting the results.

Bless Peggy, Father. She also has a servant's heart. I agree with her in the prayer she posted for several people who have lost loved ones.

You, Father are so faithful, kind and loving. Thank You for helping me do what I can to help others in the name of Jesus. I love You so much and look forward to seeing You when it is my time. I pray for our country. God, please bless America and keep all of us safe from the enemy, in the name of Jesus. Amen."


Thank You Father, Son and Holy Spirit ...
Glory be to You! Praise and thanks! Pour out Your love on my dear sisters in Christ, hear their hearts, and keep them blessed in Jesus' Name and filled with the power of Your Holy Spirit!!!

PRAYER ALERT:

Twin Explosions at Finish Line of Boston Marathon

Multiple casualties are reported after at least two explosions rocked the area near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

Witnesses reportedly heard booms that sounded like two claps of thunder near the finish line inside the Fairmount Copley Plaza Hotel.

The explosions occurred just before 3 p.m. Video of the scene showed a number of emergency crews in the area tending to victims and blood on the ground near the finish line.

At news time, there were three reported fatalities and numerous casualties.

One blast blew out the windows of a Marathon Sports store on Boylton Street.

Nearby buildings have been evacuated and bomb-sniffing dogs have been brought to search the scene.

The source of the explosions remains undetermined at reporting time.

(Sources: Fox News, ABC, NBC, CBS, Boston Herald)

As the Lord leads, please pray:

For the first responders, hospital personnel and others who are attending to the wounded.

For the families who have lost loved ones, and for the injured
.
That investigators will rapidly discover the source or reason behind the explosions.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I come to You this afternoon agreeing in Prayer with Denise, Peggy, Anonyomous and others that I may have left out. You know each one by name and exactly what they need. Please heal those who need healing, put Your loving arms around each person mentioned. That You can show Your precious love to so many at one time is amazing but so precious and I'm so glad I was taught to believe in You and accept Your Son, Jesus, as my Savior. You have done so much for me in the past few years (twice you gave me life and brought me back) and for that I give You all the glory, honor and praise.

Father, I don't know why I can't but my prayers in the Reply section right after the prayer request, but You do and if it is Your will please help me get it fixed. I don't want anyone to think that I have not prayed for them.

I am grieved at what happened yesterday, but when people start taking You and prayer away from our children and other places, You will respond. I'm not saying You caused yesterday's bombing, but a door had been left open and the enemy of this world got in. Father, I ask that You bless our country, America. I pray that people will realize what is happening and turn from their wicked ways and accept Jesus as their Savior. Protect those of us who belong to You as I know You will, including our children, our friends and loved ones. Father,I ask that You bless what I wrote on Facebook yesterday and that people who don't know You will realize they need You in order to live in this world until it's time for You to send Jesus to take us all to our Heavenly Home. Thank you again for Your love and mercy, in the name of Jesus. I love You so much. GOD, PLEASE BLESS AMERICA and answer the prayer requests here at The Lighthouse. Amen.

You who have read this prayer and would like to go to my wall on Facebook, Alice Stocks, and hit Like if You agree with me in prayer I would appreciate it. Let's let the world know what and Who we stand for.

Dear God, I know that You have called me for a special mission. Every Christian has a mission for Your kingdom. I pray that every day, I will seek and follow Your guidance, allowing You to work through me to accomplish Your purpose. If my mission is to feed the hungry, take care of my family, reach out to the hurting, work with a group of children, preach to the multitudes, lead a nation--however big or small--I want to pursue it and bring glory to You. Thank You for finding me worthy of ministering through. In the name of Jesus

Heavenly Father, We are on our knees crying out to You to save our loved ones.
Bring Peter and all our loved ones to salvation in Jesus Christ. Give Angie and us the boldness to share the gospel and the truth of salvation with anyone who does still not receive You as Lord. Give us a gentle spirit and the right words, not too much, not too little, spoken in love and with an urgency Father. For we know the time is drawing near. You say in Your Word that we and our households will be saved. So we wait and trust You for this promise. Help us.
If we love them, how much more You love them and want them not to perish!
Bring salvation. May the Light of Jesus open their eyes and their hearts. Yet we know it's not by might, nor by power, but by Your Spirit. Holy Spirit come and teach us how to be bold and testify to their need for You, as Savior and Lord.
Thank You for our salvation! Thank you for the great gift of Your love! Praise Your Holy name for all the hearts that You are opening and bringing to You in these last days. May it not be too late for all our dear ones before You call us from this earthly place. All glory is Yours! Holy are You, O Lord! Thank You for Your amazing grace, gift of such immense love and Your forgiveness!

Thank You for this chance to receive You as Lord and if healing is Your will, we seek complete healing in You.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I haven't been here for a few days, please forgive me. I know that You have taken all the prayer requests into Your heart and will answer them according to Your will. I ask for healing for those who need it, comfort for those who have lost loved ones (especially those in the explosion in Boston). I know the family of the little boy are heart broken. I pray they will turn to You for comfort and accept Jesus as their Saviour if they do not know Him. I know that You were there when things began to happen. I have not heard the news but I pray for the brother in the hospital, that someone will be able to lead him to Salvation and forgiveness for what he and his brother did.) Again I ask that You continue to Bless America. Protect those who love you for I believe this is just the beginning of the way things are happening here that should not be. Our children need the Bible and they need to be taught about You and how to Pray. Father, You know the needs in our country better than I do and You are the one in charge (not our leaders) and things will happen only if You allow it. I know You will protect those of us who are Your children. Thank You, Father God for loving us. Amen.

He has a plate in his back while serving in the military. When the aids were helping him get back in bed last night something happened to his back and he has had more severe pain. The Dr said he did not think he had a break in his back. He's still in a lot of pain this a.m, but has been walking. I ask Father that you heal Dale, in the name of Jesus. He loves you very much. Also let his wife feel your loving arms around her. She just buried her mother last week. Thank You Father for helping these dear. people. I give You all the praise, honor and glory. 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.
