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~1

RETURNING TO PRAYER REQUESTS HERE rather than the ABOVE PAGE
on April 19, 2014

*******

"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

GREAT SONG "WE PRAY" BarlowGirl, Leigh of Point of Grace, Adam Agee and Various Artists

Prayer and fasting and repentance can lead to both national and spiritual breakthrough.
Will you join in by praying these 3 prayer points?
1. That America would repent of its pride and self-idolatry, as we “humble ourselves and pray, turn from our wicked ways” and invite, and welcome God back into government, legal system, churches, family, education, military, business, media and the arts.
2 Chronicles 7:14
2. That America would seek wisdom from God because “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom”. Psalm 111:10
3. That the Church in America would reject her lukewarm apathetic attitude and arise to her full God-given destiny in Christ and together walk in their first love for God. Rev 3:16-17

PRAY THIS POWERFUL PRAYER
(not just today, but daily...join us praying)
our
NATIONAL PRAYER
by Ann Graham Lotz


Lord of the Universe. Lord of this planet. Lord of the nations. Lord of our hearts. 
"On this National Day of Prayer, we look to You…
In the darkness, You are our Light.
In the storm, You are our Anchor.
In our weakness, You are our Strength. In our grief, You are our Comfort.
In our despair, You are our Hope.
In our confusion, You are our Wisdom. In time of terrorism, You are our Shield. In time of war, You are our Peace.
In times of uncertainty, You are the Rock on which we stand.
We make our prayer to You using the words of the prophet Daniel:
O Lord, You are the great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant of love with those who love Him and keep His commandments. You are merciful and forgiving. You are righteous, but this day we are covered with shame because we have sinned against You, and done wrong. We have turned away from Your commands and principles. We have turned away from You.
Yet You have promised in 2 Chronicles 7, that if we–a people identified with You–would humble ourselves, pray, seek Your face, and turn from our wicked ways, then You would hear our prayer, forgive our sin and heal our land.
So we choose to stop pointing our finger at the sins of others, and examine our own hearts and lives. We choose to acknowledge our own sin–our neglect and defiance and ignorance and even rejection of You. This day we choose to repent.
In response to our heartfelt repentance, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Father of Jesus Christ, in keeping with all Your righteous acts and according to Your promise, turn away Your anger and Your wrath from the United States of America. Hear the prayers and petitions offered to You on this National Day of Prayer, as we give You our full attention. Give ear, our God, and hear; open Your eyes and see. We do not make requests of You because we are righteous, but because of Your great mercy.
For the glory of Your Name hear our prayer, forgive our sin, and heal our land.
We ask this in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ who offers us salvation from Your judgment, forgiveness for our sin, and reconciliation with You through His own blood shed on the Cross. Amen."

PRAISE REPORTS

PRAISE, ANSWER, THANKS


Here at the Lighthouse of Prayer, we lift each other up and pray for our needs and those of others we see here and there throughout "blogland". I've decided to move the PRAYER REQUESTS back to the regular blog post (position in the middle of the scrollbars after the intro and Fetch a Prayer (by the way, if you have not tried these they are really great and easy to use, don't be afraid to click on them and try them out) and removed it from the PAGES here at the top. We don't give God praise for His answers often enough. Some do, in their prayers, of course, or individually; yet it's time to prioritize that here (even if it's not the answer we hoped for, God does answer.)


“I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart.” Psalm 9:1
"Praise should always follow answered prayer, just like the mist of earth’s gratitude rises when the sun of heaven’s love warms the ground. Has the Lord been gracious to you, and heard your voice as your earnestly pray? Then praise Him as long as you live! Don’t deny a song to Him who has answered your prayer and given you the desire of your heart."  
[Originally written by Charles H. Spurgeon, published in “Mornings and Evenings,” entry for October 30th, AM. Updated to modern English by Darren Hewer, 2008] 
Quite a while back, it was suggested to me to include PRAISE reports!!! And so I did every once in awhile add a post to do just that. I guess I was thinking that we would do this in our regular PRAYER REQUESTS (once an answer or praise or thanks was given for a prayer request) yet often we forget to come back and report ... so ...

Why of course, we always want to come back and give glory to Our Lord, praise Him and thank Him. In fact, I'm sure that we had a place long ago when we started here. So since we try to keep everything as a prayer around here, I was not sure how this might work ... but I'm leaving it up to YOU! I have noticed some PRAISE shared in the regular Prayer Requests (that I truly appreciate) but I just wanted to make a special place to do this. If at all possible, it would be nice if you remember when the request was made to indicate that also (when we first prayed about this, for example, March 2013 Prayer Request) ...

We tried this back in September 2012 (Part I) then there was a (Part II.), if you'd like to see how it was done then, read or view a video with some scriptures on PRAISE, click on Part I. This is one for 2013.

If at all possible, write your PRAISE, ANSWER or THANKS in a form of a prayer ... Thank you and God bless!

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.
