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.

PRAYER REQUESTS ~ MARCH

"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 was the

  6. Dear Heavenly Father, I'm kinda still in shock and You know much better than I, all that my husband needs, but I humbly come before You and ask that You open up the floodgates of heaven over Him, so that He accept Jesus as His Lord and Savior. I received not so good news today, once again from afar, via phone that this past Mon. he was in a rollover accident and I thank You that You protected Him somewhat and he's still alive (though in a neck brace) while he heals. I ask that You bring him healing from the top of his head to his feet, decrease his pain, and take control over his kidneys (although I think I understood that may be more to do with his diabetes than the accident but the hospital kept him longer to be sure of this). Whatever, he needs I place Him in Your hands and Your divine supernatural healing power to help him do all that he is suppose to do to recover. I thank You that You saved him once again and are giving him more time here. I give You all the glory. He is Yours! I thank You for him and ask that You continue to bless him and watch over him. He did not want me to come home but even that is in Your hands. I thank You for the care he receives and that You will send him the transportation he needs, since he's now totaled another truck.

    Little, as yet-unborn Baby Obed Walters needs much prayer.

    I am going to copy the exact words from his dad, Travis, to explain his physical condition.

    "...the baby has what they're calling “Transposition of the Great Vessels” which simply means his Aorta and Pulmonary Artery are switched.

    Everything else looks good, measurements, etc.

    While the baby is in utero, he’s fine as he’s not breathing through his lungs and there’s a hole between the left and right ventricles that is allowing the blood to mix, thus sending oxygen to his body.

    However once he’s born, he’ll most likely have to have immediate heart surgery to survive." 
  16. Dear Heavenly Father, Please answer all of these needs. Thank You. Amen

    Pray fo her hubby Avery, as he prepares for dental surgery. He will be under anesthesia, and will need 4-6 days recovery time. . That is April 3. Thank You. 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.
