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.

31 DAYS OF PRAYER ... A21 Campaign with P31 Ministry

Earlier this week I shared GLOBAL HARVEST here that is upcoming, but later that day, I came upon something that is dear to my heart and mission - a Prayer Campaign for A21 Campaign with P31 Ministries.


I am passionate about this so I shared it on my MISSIONS blog but it really belongs here! However, I will not be reposting what I shared at MISSIONS already or what you can read at Lysa's blog posts on Mon. and Weds. or I believe daily on her Facebook page and quite possible on Christine Caine's Facebook page, blog or A21 Campaign site

So what I'd like to do is share the PDF from Lysa (I've seen it in other sites as well) to use the prayer format here and leave it open for your prayers in our comments as usual (PRAYERS ONLY) but it would be much better if you left your prayers on Lysa's blog or Facebook (and I'll understand or you could copy your prayer here and there, double the power) 

Here is the first part of the Prayer PDF:

PRAY FOR VICTIMS

Day 1: Lord, today as I pray for the A21 Campaign, the word I’m focusing on is “Protection.” God, please protect those who have been taken and are currently enslaved. Please help them. Show them a safe way of escape. Help A21 workers or trustworthy government officials and them. And then, as they escape, blind the eyes of those who would want to impede the rescue. In God’s Powerful Name we pray, Amen.

Day 2: For their protection, freedom, and justice: Psalm 82:4, Psalm 103:6, Psalm 146:7

Day 3: For their strength and salvation: Psalm 138:7, Isaiah 40:29, Luke 19:10

Day 4: For their hope and healing: Psalm 40:1-3, Jeremiah 30:17, Jeremiah 31:17

Day 5: Lord, today as I pray for the A21 Campaign, I’m once again focusing on “Protection.” Jesus, protect these young girls, women, boys and young men being trafficked today. Please put conviction in the hearts of those holding these dear ones hostage. Send a searing pain into the hardened hearts of these captors so that they may open their eyes and see the wrong they are doing. Bring alive their conscience and give them the courage to set free their captives. And help those being held hostage and safety in one of the A21 transition homes or another place of restoration. Protect them spiritually, physically, and emotionally as they learn to be empowered to live in freedom. In God’s Powerful Name we pray, Amen.


Pray for Traffickers
Pray for Governments
Pray for the Root Causes
Pray for Global Awareness
Pray for the Church
Pray for the A21 Campaign
(I may add these prayer or scriptures to pray in the "Prayers Lifted to God's Throne", which is the place usually for comments but we delete comments - even good ones :0) JUST PRAYERS are accepted HERE. However, if you'd like to comment, you can do so on the MISSIONS blog.)
Please join me and PRAY to END this modern day atrocity! 
* Note: I posted this back to Day 1 of when Lysa began on Mon. Sept. 23

Heavenly Father, I pray for those who are being attached for standing up for their rights as an American citizen and a
believer in You, Your Son, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Father, You are our protector and I humbly ask that You would block these attackers, draw the blood line of Jesus in front of them and when they start to cross over it may they be frozen in their steps in the name of Jesus.

I also lift up our citizens who are following Your command to spread the gospel of our Lord and Savior. Father, You know better than I what is going on in our country. Pour fresh oil upon those who are standing up for You and stop attackers so they cannot hurt any of Your children, in the name of Jesus. Empower Your children with the knowledge and wisdom they need, we all need, in Jesus name I pray. Thank You, Father, I love You so much. Protect Your warriors. Amen

Heavenly Father, How Your heart must break when You see these precious women and children taken as victims and sold. How my heart breaks knowing that this tragedy is happening all around us and is increasing rather than decreasing! My heart aches for these precious children and women.

I join together with this army of women at P31 and A21, and ask Your Mighty power and grace to help us put an end to this crime against humanity, against Your children. I ask for wisdom and protection for each victim and possible victim. I place a hedge of protection around them, those captive and those being preyed upon. As their Heavenly Protector, I plead for You to show us how we can best defeat this enemy and the territory that they are stealing, plundering, robbing and destroying. Keep these precious victims from harm and the evil that surrounds them. Put a shield around them until we can rescue them. Give global organizations like Christine’s the power and means to continue breaking down the strongholds and doors until each victim is saved.
Then we ask for compassionate people to care and nurture these victims back with all they need to recover, with love, with physical, spiritual, emotional, psychological care and support needed. Open doors and strengthen those on the front lines meeting these victims and dealing with them. You are Our Deliverer and You desire to set these captives free. Protect each one that is vulnerable and put a special watch over them.
We thank You for the efforts of those that are trying to penetrate and stop this human trafficking. We thank You for all the provision You are making possible. We bless You and give You praise for we know that You are greater than this atrocity. We ask for Your mercy and forgiveness that this has become so epidemic and wounded so many lives. May the many prayers offered up for the next 31 days make a huge difference in the lives of the victims and the beginning of the end of this! May this be just a start of many praying and standing up for the voiceless victims in this. We serve notice to the enemy that his days are numbered for this to end and we call upon all the heavenly forces and hosts to wage war against sex trafficking and tourism, we bind the root causes of this stronghold and the finances that back it. We take the authority of Jesus Christ, who came to save us, and set all of us free for He is Our Advocate before You, He is the Burden bearer and He paid the greatest price so that each of us might breathe and live eternally with You, this includes each victim of this human trafficking situation. Bring liberty and heal the many broken situations that lead to this evil. You are Lord of the Hosts, release Your heavenly armies to lead us into battle against this atrocity, guard each one doing this work and praying in Jesus’ name.

for Day 2: Peggy said (from MISSIONS Blog)...

LORD, We lift the victims to You for Protection, for Freedom and for Justice!

"Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked."

We pray this for each captive, each victim, even for each one rescued. We ask this even for those in harm's way of becoming a sex trafficked victim. You are their only Defender. You are their Advocate! We seek Your justice over the wicked. We ask for an end to trafficking and an end to the corruption that permits this. We ask for wisdom and support to rescue the victims, break the bondage of poverty and the spirit of poverty over these people that sell their children or women out of desperateness.
Step in and move on Your people to provide enough to have many more rescues like the recent ones we've heard of in Ukraine and others. Praise You! Thank You for each one!

Your Word also says in Psalm 103:6:
"The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed."

Amen. Let it be ... we pray,
for we know Lord, that You work righteousness and bring justice for all the oppressed as we cry out to You, seek You and knock asking this in the name of Jesus.

[Here is a prayer from Heart Light praying Psalm 103] that I pray for these precious victims and those in danger of becoming victim

Holy and righteous God, I know You are even more repulsed than we are by the inhumanity that stains our world and crushes precious and innocent peoples.

Please, Father, show Your will and discipline those nations who are ruthless in their injustice. Convict us, Your people, that we as individuals and as congregations must be places of reconciliation, justice, healing, and hope. Use me, along with my brothers and sisters in our congregation to show Your righteousness and Your justice toward those in our community who need freedom from oppression and who need someone to help stand up for justice in every area of life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

We believe this for these victims:

Who executes justice for the oppressed,
Who gives food to the hungry.
The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners.

LORD, Give them Freedom!

8
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind;
The Lord raises those who are bowed down;
The Lord loves the righteous.

LORD, Open eyes in every way to be aware and see these victims that need rescue. Raise up those who are bowed down. We know You love as we do righteousness and justice for these precious ones.

9
The Lord watches over the strangers;
He relieves the fatherless and widow;
But the way of the wicked He turns upside down.

Yes, Father, Watch over them. Be vigilant over them and set a guard of angels around them to hold back the forces of evil. We plead that You be Father to the fatherless and widowed but many of these feel abandoned just like these and so we ask You to be their Father and provide divine protection to victims and rescue workers as well.

Thank You for hearing us and directing us to reach them.

Father, I agree with Peggy's prayer.. Watch over the Victim and protect the rescue workers in the name of Jesus.

From Lysa's:

PRAY FOR TRAFFICKERS

Day 6: For conviction, repentance, and salvation: Isaiah 55:7, Romans 5:6-8, Timothy 2:25

Day 7: Lord, as I pray for the A21 Campaign, the word I’m focusing on today is “Prosecution.”

Help the leaders of A21 and other organizations who are working to prosecute the traffickers and strengthen the legal response to human trafficking. Please provide the right legal counsel for every victim so their voices can be heard and justice can be served. In Your Powerful Name we pray, Amen.

Day 8: For criminal networks to dismantle: Psalm 7:9, Psalm 37:17, Psalm 37:20

Day 9: For the oppressors to be arrested and prosecuted: Isaiah 16:4, Jeremiah 22:3, Amos 5:15a

Day 10: Lord, as I pray for the A21 Campaign, I’m once again focusing on “Prosecution.”

Help the A21 Campaign send a strong message with every arrest and prosecution of the sex traffickers, that this is not okay. This horrible injustice will not go unnoticed and it will not go unpunished. Give them wisdom to know how to and trustworthy officials and legal representation to send a strong warning to all those participating in the criminal acts of sex trafficking. In Your Powerful Name we pray, Amen.

Standing in agreement.
P.

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.
