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.

Yesterday's post just kinda ended our PRAYER series rather abruptly from the YouVersion reading plan "Teach Me to Pray"  and I summed up the rest of the 22 days quickly when I found out that Time for Grace has their plan available as a booklet at their site. However, I want to somehow sum up the main points in 2 sections because I find them so relevant and necessary to encourage you to keep on praying, hopefully here at the Lighthouse of Prayer but most definitely in your homes, churches, throughout blog land and our communities. Of course, the Lord's Prayer and the Heroes are just as important sections. These are encouragements to bless you!

DAYS 24-28


"I am with you"
Hebrews 13:5

"I see and hear and act" 
Matthew 6:6

"I care"
1 Peter 5:7

"I act because you asked"
Psalm 12:5

"We've already won" 
John 16:33

DAYS 18-23

"Characteristics of Powerful Prayer"
Bold (Matthew 7:7-8)
Persistent (Luke 18:1;7)
For Others (Ephesians 6:19-20) 
Together (Ecc. 4:9-10)
 Confident (James 1:6-8)
In Jesus' Name (John 16:23-24)

Let's come boldly and confidently to God's Throne Room on behalf of others together as our Prayer Requests main Bible verse tells us, in Jesus' precious Name ... this is why the Lighthouse of Prayer exists.

Please check out the Prayer Request (now as a) PAGE above often, add yours or pray for others along with others. 

So now what?

where do we go from here?

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.
