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.

LET US PRAY FOR OUR NATION

JOIN OUR NATION IN PRAYER!!! Just in case, you were not aware of this major event, I shared all the info back here exactly as it's written from the National Day of Prayer Org. LIVE FEED on God TV. I PRAY RADIO link.



Pastor Greg Laurie and the task force have written the following special PRAYER to be read at noon by everyone praying, available in English and Spanish! Get involved! Get your church and community involved! Get yourself involved! You are the church, we depend on YOU to "humble yourself and pray." I will repost this on the 2nd (maybe with the prayer so there's no excuse not to pray)!

"F
ather, we come to You to pray for our nation, the United States of America.
How You have blessed us through the years, Lord! We rightly sing, “America, America, God shed His grace on thee.” Yet we see trouble in our culture today. We see the breakdown of the family, crippling addictions, and random acts of horrific violence.

Lord, we need Your help in America. In recent days, we have done our best to remove Your Word and Your counsel from our courtrooms, classrooms and culture. It seems, as President Lincoln once said, that we have “forgotten God.” But Lord, You have not forgotten us! You can bless and help and revive our country again.

Scripture tells us that “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34). Lord, in Your mercy, we ask that You would exalt our country again. We have had a number of great awakenings in America. We have experienced times of refreshing, and revivals that changed not only the spiritual but also the moral landscape. As the psalmist said, “Will You not revive us again, so that Your people may rejoice in You?” (Psalm 85:6)

That is our prayer for America today, Lord. Send a mighty spiritual awakening that will turn the hearts of men and women, boys and girls back to you. You have told us if we will humble ourselves and pray, and seek Your face and turn from our wicked ways, that You will forgive our sins and heal our land. (2 Chronicles7:14)

Forgive us today, Lord, and heal this troubled land that we love so much.

We ask all of this in the name of Jesus Christ."

P
adre Celestial, Toda buena dádiva y todo don perfecto proviene de Ti. Tú eres un Dios fiel y Tu misericordia es eterna.

Tú has prometido bendecir  la nación que en Ti confía. Nuestra moneda proclama “En Dios Confiamos”, pero en nuestra cultura estamos muy lejos de Ti.

En las palabras del profeta Daniel: “Hemos pecado,  hemos cometido iniquidad, hemos actuado impíamente, nos hemos rebelado, y nos hemos apartado de Tus mandamientos y Tus ordenanzas”.

Venimos ante Ti, una vez más, en busca de Tu perdón y misericordia. Tú, oh Dios, eres nuestra única esperanza… Escucha nuestra oración y, por el amor a Tu nombre, que brille Tu rostro sobre esta nación.

Da a nuestros líderes el deseo de buscar la sabiduría y la valentía de seguir Tu guía… y vela por los hombres y mujeres de nuestras fuerzas armadas, ya que ellos se sacrifican por causa de la libertad.

Te damos las gracias por todo lo que has hecho por nosotros, y sinceramente oramos para que nos ayudes a ser, una vez más, una nación cuyo Dios es el Señor.

En el nombre de Tu Hijo y nuestro Salvador, hacemos esta oración. Amén

prayer for today

Today’s Prayer - From the Prayer Wall

Cover our President, and all positions of authority with a banner of correction, spiritual sensitivity, and an understanding of Your wrath. Show them that without You there is no positive leadership only destruction. Guard the hearts of Your people on this earth that they not fall prey to so much tantalizing, ambiguous evil promises. Be a sheltering and guiding force to our military. Holy Spirit, open the eyes and hearts of the innocent, the children, the fence sitters and our fragmented families that they can see God and bask in the light of His glory; have new life, eternal life.

Father, We love You so very, very much. We lift our voices in prayer to You today. Please hear our pleas, heal our land. We need You to keep us safe, and lead us, as only You can. God bless America, today, and everyday. Amen.

Father in Heaven, we repent. Forgive this nation. We turn from our wicked ways 2 Chron. 7:14. Thank you for the valuable life- changing truth of forgiving our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Father teach us that this is the only reason that your Son came to earth. Let that sink into our inner beings today as we cry out to you today to save our nation. Sanctify our hearts unto your holiness oh God. Thank you for your proof that you reign over the earth, for your symbols of righteousness that out weigh the most controversial points in history. You remain the one and highest authority, ruler and king of all.

What a mighty God we serve. Remind us TODAY that its all about serving you. Help us to be our brothers keeper like Jesus has been ours. I ask today for your healing power to shift America to a closer walk with you, an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ your Son. Burn with your holy fire. Consume our enemies of bitterness, confusion, and anger. Release your Agape love over America, the nations, Jerusalem and Israel. Release your anointing to forgive. Keep our eyes fixed on you. Keep our souls from grieving your holy spirit. Dethrone all idol worship and bring shame to the unrighteous.

FATHER SAVE OUR NATION. OUR CONTINENT, OUR LAND FROM DESTRUCTION IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH. WE DECREE OUR LAND HEALED IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME.

FATHER WE REBUKE ALL BACKLASH AND NULLIFY ANY SATANIC ATTACK BY THE POWER OF YOUR PROTECTING BLOOD. ISAIAH 54:14-17. AMEN.

Abba Father, I love You and thank You for all the things Your are doing to protect those of us who serve You. You know the prayer I put on my blog. Please bless America and heal our land. Forgive me if I have not done what I can to help others. I thank You, Father for 73 years on this earth and I look forward to the day I will see You. Abba Father, please bless America, the land of the free, in the name of Your son Jesus. I love You, Amen

Heavenly Father, Although I have prayed most of the day and listened to others pray for America, I come here to thank You also for Alice and her 73 years so far and counting that You have given her here on this earth and the many blessings in her family. I ask You to continue to pour out Your favor and blessings on her, her family and each of the people that come here to pray and lift others to You.

Thank You Lord, for their many prayers and for Your many blessings on America that really needs to come back to You, repent for our lack and turning away for the corporate body of the USA, grant wisdom and spiritual discernment to all our leaders, especially those in our government, turn their hearts toward You so America will repent and return to our foundation and truths in You and Your Word! Save our nation! Save Your people! Cover us with Your mighty hand of protection. Humble us as a nation as You heal our land and bring all authority to bow first to You as the Supreme Authority and Omnipotent power from where they should draw their strength and wisdom. God bless America! God bless all who prayed today for this nation and our leaders.

Thank You for Denise, as always, starting us out, humbly on our knees this day, proclaiming our love and gratitude to You! Please meet her many needs and all that she lifts to You in confidence before Your throne of grace! Forgive us Lord for our sins and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from all evil. In Jesus Name... To You goes all glory, all honor and all praise forever and ever...

All our love,
Peggy and the Lighthouse of Prayer Team and Readers

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.
