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.

MAY PRAYER REQUESTS ~ 1st 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

Heavenly Father, I just come to praise You and worship You and thank you for all the things You have done not only for me but for others through The Lighthouse of Prayer. Last week I ask You to be with Caren Stocks (my husband's nephew's wife). Her mother was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in several places of her body. I know that You could have healed her but it must have been time for her to go be with You. Her funeral was last week. Thank You, Father, for being with Caren and her family. Today, her husband is having a heart cath and I ask You, in the name of Jesus, to be with him and I pray the procedure will go well. You know the problems he already has. He loves You so much and I ask that if it's Your will to heal his body. There is nothing that You, Father, cannot do. Be with Caren and their girls. Increase their faith in Jesus name I pray. May Dale and Caren both feel Your loving arms around them. Thank You, Father for what You are doing in their lives to make things better. The song with words Great, oh how great You are comes to my mind but I can't remember the rest. You are great, You do miracles so great, there is no one else like You.

I also pray that the second blood test I had Monday will show that my B6 level is down, in the name of Jesus. I love You so much and feel so unworthy but You love us no matter what. Thank You, Father. Amen

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, I've just found out that Caren's husband has to have a triple bypass to his heart. I ask, in the lovely name of Jesus, that You heal him according to Your will. If he has the surgery I know that You will be right beside the doctor guiding his hands as he does these bypasses. I pray Father that this will help Dale and remove the pressure in his back. Father, this is so much for this family right now, please let them feel Your loving arms around each of his family and especially Dale, in the name of Jesus. I thank You in advance for helping the doctors to bring about healing in Dale's body. Bless Your name, Father, bless Your name. I love You, Amen.

Denise said...

Father, Please let Alice's blood test come back normal. Thank You. Amen.

Denise said...

Father, Please be with Dale when he has surgery, guide the surgeons hands, bring total healing. Be with Caren, give her strength, and peace. Surround her, and her children with much love. Caren lost her mom recently, and now her husband will be having surgery. Thank You. Amen.

Denise said...

Father, Please be with my friend Cathy. She has a severe eye infection, bring healing, and relief soon. Thank You. Amen.

Heavenly Father, please be with my dh's nephew. He had to have 5 bypasses to his heart instead of 4. I have not heard from anyone but I know You are taking care of him and his family. Thank You, I love You. Amem

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, at the request of a niece I am asking you to heal the 9yr old with a very large tumor. I pray that You will answer the prayers that have been prayed for her including mine. I don't know a lot about her but Abba Father, You know exactly who the little girl is, where she lives and You know more about this tumor than the doctors do. Please heal her and may she grow up to know Jesus as her Savior, and it's in the name of Jesus that I pray. I trust in You and love You so much. You have brought me through a lot for which I am very thankful.

I also ask, Father, for continued healing of Dale, our nephew who had 5 bypasses yesterday on his heart. I havn't heard how he is doing but I know You are right by His side comforting Him and healing him from this surgery. I also ask that You heal his back. You know all that he has been through and he and his family love you very much. Thank You for all that You do, in the name of Jesus.

Father, we have some nephew's that need salvation. Please continue to knock at their heart's door. I do believe that one day they are all going to come to You and ask You into their hearts. Praise Your Holy name. The song I use so many times gives You honor and praise. "You are great, you do miracles so great, there is no one else like You, there is no one else like You." Bless Your holy name and bless all of our families, in the name of Jesus. Amen

From the Heart said...

Father, I ask that you answer the prayer's of my dear sister in Christ, Denise, in the name of Jesus.

From the Heart said...

Father, the picture that was sent to me just a fe moment ago came after I had I wrote a prayer for dh's nephew. You know the extent of pain he is in with the 5 bypass surgery and what ever happened in his back when he was being helped back in bed after sitting up which has put him in extreme pain. Father, I'm putting the prayer I sent his wife just a few moments ago. I pray she will feel Your presence as she prays it over Dale in the name of Jesus. "Abba Father, one of your children, Dale Stocks, is in tremendous pain. You know better than any of us what that pain feels like. I ask in the name of Jesus that you fix what ever happened to make Dale's pain worse. To the enemy I say flee now in the name of Jesus, you have no authority over Dale. He is covered by the blood of Jesus and you cannot cross that bloodline so flee from that room and Dale now, in the name of Jesus. Praise your holy name, Father, praise Your holy name. You do miracles so great, there is no one like You, there is no one else like you.Praise You Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. I thank You now for what You are doing to help Dale with the pain, in the name of Jesus. Bless Your name, Bless Your name, there is no one else like You. Let them feel Your loving arms around them in the name of Jesus. I love You because You first loved me. 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.
