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.

A cord of three strands is not quickly broken"      
Ecclesiastes 4:12

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.


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.

Father, I will be seeing the Dr. on Tuesday regarding the shunt he put in in 1999. I believe You will be with me and everything will be put in it's right working order in the name of Jesus. I give You all the praise, honor and glory for what You are doing here at the Lighthouse. Thank You for hearing all of our prayers and for the healing You have done. Amen.

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, You know that I have to go back next week to the hospital to have a shuntgram so the dr. can check the shunt more closely. I ask that You be with me and that everything will turn out okay and I won't have a have a new shunt put in, in the name of Jesus. You can do what no man can do and I'm trusting You to do what ever is necessary and heal me in the name of Jesus. Thank You for all the other times You have worked miracles in my life. I trust You will be with me in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Father, I am standing with Alice in her Dr. visits (yesterday's and next weeks) ... that You be with her, bring her peace, comfort, wisdom, continual trust in you and the drs. and healing in the name of Jesus! We thanks You and praise You for what You are doing in her and the miracles yet to come in her life, including this one. Only You, Jesus and all of Your power surround Alice and her loved ones today and each day in Your precious Healing Name and strength, we unite in You ... We love You, Lord --- and are trusting (in) You completely as You have done before, You will do and can do over once again... in Your Power.

In the light of these terrible events a call to prayer for the persecuted Christians in the Middle East and other parts of the world, has come from very dear friends in Egypt.
To The Body of Christ Worldwide,

As you all are following what's happening in the Middle East lately, there is an unleash of a spirit of slaughtering of God's people in Iraq, and many other geographical areas as well. A sword is passing in this area.

Together with many Christians around the world we felt the need to pray and fast to stop these bloodthirsty demons that march there, and ask for the Prince of Peace to reign over the Middle East.

The urgency of the hour, comes not only from the escalating numbers of martyrs, and innocent people’s lives being taken, but also from the warning of the Holy Spirit to the Church in the Middle East as well as in the rest of the world.
(Esther 4:13 & 14)

It is time for us to stand in the gap because if we do THE LORD WILL USHER A NEW ERA OF HARVEST.
There is a GOLDEN WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY during the next 2 weeks to stop this, so lets use it...

Psalm 2:8
"Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession".

Join the Body of Christ worldwide for:

Shall we cry out with Isaiah and put an end to this season in Jesus’ Name!

Isaiah 64:1-4

From the Heart said...

Father, I was not able to come here to pray for the Christians in the middle East, but I did try to remember to pray for them as often as I could.

Thank you, Father for being with me last week during the procedure that was being doing to see what is happening with my shunt. You were with me during the long wait for the Dr. as he was in surgery. I knew that You were holding me as I lay on that table past lunch time .My leg began to get numb as it does when I don't take the medicine I need nor lunch, but I felt such peace and knew You were there holding me. I thank you for the answer to my prayer although the outcome had some irregularities. The water is sluggish that goes from my brain down into my abdomen. The dr. said he would put a new shunt in if I wanted him to but gave me some time to think about it. I got this message last Tuesday and I told the nurse I would call her this week and let her know my decision. He was concerned that no one in 1999 told me to schedule regular appointments with him so when I called today I told the girl who called what had been happening (I'm still having some issues but not as bad) and I wanted to know about scheduling regular appointments. She is to call me back. I do not want the surgery but I don't want to live my rest of my life having problems. Father, I'm leaving it up to You. I know You can heal me and that's what I want, but I am not sure what to do. I will wait on You believing for healing in the name of Jesus. I love You and I know You love me. Amen.
PS Please continue to protect the Christians in the Middle East. Also I ask that You continue to pray for my prayer partners here. Also You know my two cousins who need heading and a cousins grandson who has Stage 4 cancer and lesions on his brain. Thank You Father for all You do and I pray this all in the name of Your Son, Jesus. Amen.

Cathy said...

Father, I am agreeing in prayer with Alice for healing. Thank you for being with her during the procedure. Nothing is too hard for you, and we turn it all over to you. We pray for those who need healing and for the Christians in other countries who are being persecuted. God please help and protect them. Bless my sweet friends, Peggy, Denise, Alice, Karen and all those who pray here and meet all of their needs. We love you, Lord and give you thanks and praise to all you do. In Jesus name, Amen.

Cathy said...

Father, we give you thanks and praise FOR all you do. It is getting too late tonight for me to be on here. Amen

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, it's me again. I have prayed continuously it seems for healing but I am still having problems with the shunt and also my eye sight. I ask that You go with me Friday as I go see the dr. again about the problems I'm having with the shunt. I ask for Your will to be done. If I have to get a new shunt I know You will be with me every step of the way. I also still need complete healing in my left eye. Some sight is returning but it is so slow. You have been so precious to me with the shot I get every month. I love You and long to see You when it's my time to go. Please bless my family, my friends here, and others that are praying for me. I trust You to help me make the right decision. I don't want to go on the way things are now and only You have the answer I need. I love You and thank You for Your son, Jesus who is with me also. Praise Your Holy name., praise Your name, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Your loving daughter, Alice.

PS Please continue to bless my cousin who had the liver transplant. I pray that You will continue to heal him and help him so he won't have to keep going for dialysis. Bless my cousin whose husband is now resting the Your shadow according to Psalms 91. Also my cousin still needs healing of her broken shoulder. I ask that You bless those in our family that need your help in the name of Jesus. Amen

It's Time to Pray


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.
