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.

SEPTEMBER PRAYER REQUESTS

"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

Anne Graham Lotz"911 Prayer for Jerusalem" said...

Our Father in Heaven. God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. You are the Eternal I AM. The One who is age to age the same. There is no shadow of turning with You. You are fully present in every generation—past, present, and future. You are the All-Mighty. Your power has not been deleted or depleted over the millennia of human history. We know that You so loved the world that You gave us Heaven’s treasure when You sent Your only Son to die, so that anyone and everyone who places their faith in Him will not perish but have everlasting life. Yet we also know that Your great heart of love still longs to pour out Your blessing on the City and the people that You have uniquely chosen as Your own. Jerusalem. The House of Israel. The Jews.

In this present worldwide climate of unbridled evil, we are desperate! Nations are unraveling. Wars are raging. There are rumors of more wars breaking out. Kingdom is rising against kingdom. Our spirits feel the turmoil and agitation that surely is a reflection of the warfare being waged in the invisible realms. We need You! For everything! But our hearts are now burdened for the Epicenter of the world. For Jerusalem and all that she represents at this critical, strategic last hour.

So we humbly turn to You now. For one hour we turn away from our responsibilities and routines, our busyness and our business, our own problems and pressures. We turn away from focusing on our own nation and the needs of the church. We turn away from any self-reliance or self-interests, and we look to You. We run to You. We join together with one heart and one voice to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. You alone are the One who makes us to dwell in safety. You alone are the One who makes us secure. You alone are God. And You alone are our God. We turn to You, deeply aware we do not deserve in ourselves to address You, yet boldly confident of access into Your most holy presence through the blood of Your Son and our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. And so…

{just the beginning of Anne's Prayer, there is so much more
"This prayer may be prayed in one hour, or it may be prayed section by section over a longer period of time. Although it is patterned after Daniel 9, it is my personal prayer. It comes from deep within my heart, because I believe the rapture of the church may be imminent. ..."~ Anne Graham Lotz - read on by clicking on her name in blue}

"We will pray until our prayers are confirmed, because we believe in You. We believe that Jerusalem’s God is God. We believe You are as strong today on her behalf as You were in the beginning, and always have been, and always will be. We believe that since the first day we set our minds to gain understanding and to humble ourselves before our God, our words have been heard.[13]We believe that we have asked according to Your will, in the name of Your dear Son, and for His glory alone. Therefore we expect to receive answers.[14]

Now we await Your confirmation. We have prayed for the peace of Jerusalem. We don’t know what else to do. But our eyes are fixed expectantly on You.[15]

For the Glory of Yeshua

AMEN

Anne Graham Lotz Prayer for Jerusalem

Anne Graham Lotz"911 Prayer for Jerusalem" said...

"We pray with confidence, because You are the God of Creation, Lord of the Universe. Elohim. The Strong One. You alone are The LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship You.[2] We sing Your praises, for You are highly exalted. No one is higher than You. You are our strength and our song. Again and again, You have been the salvation of Your people: from bondage in Egypt, from Pharoh’s pursuing army, from Midianites and Amorites and Edomites and Moabites and Canaanites and Perizzites and Philistines; from captivity in Babylon, from the four corners of the earth, from the Nazi death camps, and now from Hamas and Hezbollah and ISIS and the Taliban and Al Queda and the Muslim Brotherhood and Boko Haram, You alone are able to shatter Israel’s enemies.

Your right hand, O Lord, is majestic in power. And in the greatness of Your excellence You overthrow those who rise up again You; You send forth Your burning anger, and it consumes them as chaff.

Who is like You among the gods, O Lord? Who is like You, majestic in holiness, awesome in praises, working wonders? In Your lovingkindness You have led the people whom You have redeemed; in Your strength You have guided them to Your holy habitation.

You will reign forever and ever. We long for the day when our faith becomes sight and the whole world is filled with the glory of who You are. Our highest joy will be to see You face to face; to gather around Your throne with multitudes from every tribe, language, people, and nation that you have purchased with the blood of Your own Son, and worship You.[3]



I pray with confidence because _________________"

Anne Graham Lotz"911 Prayer for Jerusalem" said...

"We pray with compulsion for the peace of Jerusalem, and for the whole House of Israel. Your people and the city that bear Your name are surrounded by a vast multitude of hostile, evil men seeking to kill and destroy. Men who behead those who refuse to embrace their evil dogma, who bury alive those who refuse to submit to their will, who crucify those who are identified with Your Son. Your people are under the incessant barrage of enemy missiles and mortars that are destroying farms and families, communities and children. While one ceasefire after another promises peace, peace there is no peace. Are You not the God who rules over all the nations? Power and might are in Your hand, and no one can withstand You.

We are compelled to pray for Your people because they are facing their enemies without the strength, wisdom, peace, comfort, security and hope that You reserve for those who are indwelt by Your Spirit through faith in Your Son, Jesus. They have no deep, blessed assurance that their sins are forgiven, that eternal life is theirs, and that a heavenly Home is waiting to welcome them.

We are compelled to pray because…

You have promised that You will give Your people a new heart and put a new spirit within them; that You will remove their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh.

You have promised that in the very last days, You will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication.

You have promised that You will open the eyes of the spiritually blind, and they would look on You, the One they have pierced.

You have promised that all of Israel, tribe by tribe, clan by clan, family by family, will mourn for their sin of rebellion and rejection of their Messiah.

You have promised that on that day of national mourning and repentance, all of Israel will be saved. That the deliverer will come from Zion; that You will turn godlessness away from Jacob.

You have promised that You will save them from all their sinful backsliding, and You will cleanse them.

You have promised that they will be Your people, and You will be their God.

You have promised that You will make an everlasting covenant of peace with them.

You have promised that one day, and we believe soon, You will set aside 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel who have been redeemed and on whose foreheads You write Your name, to be proclaimers of the Gospel to the whole world.

O Abba Father! We do not ask for what we want or what we hope. We are asking You to do what You have said! You are a great covenant-keeping God. You do not mock Your children. You keep Your word. We are therefore compelled at this moment when faced with problems that have no human solution to pray and hold You to Your promises.[4]

I pray with compulsion because of our problems and Your promises_____________"

Anne Graham Lotz"911 Prayer for Jerusalem" said...

(3rd part)

"We pray with a contrite spirit. We are ashamed and embarrassed to lift up our faces to You, for our iniquities have risen above our heads and our guilt has grown even to the heavens.[5] So now, our God, what shall we say?

We have sinned and done wrong.

We have been wicked and have rebelled.

We have turned away from Your commands and Your Word. [6]

We have not listened to Your servants the prophets…like Isaiah, Daniel, Ezekiel, and Jeremiah…who spoke in Your name to our kings, our princes, our fathers, and to all Your people.

We have not obeyed or kept the laws You have given us.

We have rationalized and explained away the evidence of Your greatness that we see in Creation around us.

We have suppressed the truth that we were created by You and for You, and have exchanged it for the lie that we are masters of our own fate

We do not glorify You as God, nor give thanks to You, but live our lives as though we have no accountability to You. [7]

We have looked to our own strength for salvation and have forgotten Your mighty acts of deliverance in the past. As though the God of Abraham, Moses, David, and Elijah no longer exists. Or if You do, You no longer involve Yourself in the affairs of Your people.

We confess that our faith in You and Your strength is weak, as though what we face today is beyond Your ability to overcome. Or beneath Your interest to intervene.

We confess to pride and arrogance that have determined we must face our enemies in our own strength. That this present darkness will pass without Your intervention.

We confess to religious intolerance that condemns those who are not like us.

We confess to religious indifference that gives lip service to You, but lacks sincere faith so that our lives are lived and our decisions are made as practical atheists—as though You do not exist.



You are merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against You. But this day we are covered with shame.

With a humble, contrite spirit, I confess_____________"

Anne Graham Lotz"911 Prayer for Jerusalem" said...

(4th part)

"We pray with clarity. We ask, great Creator God, that You give sight to those born spiritually blind. Open the eyes of Your people to see You for who You truly are. Don’t let their sight be dimmed or distorted by centuries of religiosity and rejection of the Truth. Open their eyes to Jesus as their Messiah. Then show up in great power, giving Your people supernatural strength to withhold vengeance, to execute justice, to remember mercy, to walk humbly as they acknowledge that victory will be won not by their might nor by their own power, but by Your Spirit.[8] Yet we do ask You for victory over the enemy…

We pray for the enemies who are coming against Jerusalem to be convicted of their sin, for them to repent and turn from it and ask You for forgiveness through faith in Jesus Christ. But if they do not, we ask that this day, You defeat and destroy them.

We ask that You strip Jerusalem’s enemies of peace and cooperation among themselves, so that they are divided and turn on each other.

We ask that their evil plans would be exposed or fall back on their own heads.

We ask that the face of every man, woman or child that they have slaughtered, beheaded, buried, or crucified be indelibly imprinted on their mind’s eye, filling them with turmoil and robbing them of clear thinking.[9]

We ask that for every man, woman or child who is martyred for their faith in You, ten others would rise up to take their place, so that the persecution would fan revival fires throughout the Muslim world. Please, dear Jesus, keep showing up in dreams and visions and in any form You choose in order to change hearts and minds, melting generations of prejudice and hatred with Your love and peace.

We ask that the fear of the One, True, Living God would fall on Israel’s neighbors…and on Israel.[10]

We ask that the ancient prince of the Persian kingdom and every other demonic force coming against Your City be bound and rendered powerless in the face of the hosts of Heaven.[11]

We ask that the Iron Dome would be 100% effective, and that You would continue to anoint Israel’s engineers and physicists with ability to design systems that would provide a protective shield for The Beautiful Land.

We ask for supernatural wisdom for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, his Cabinet, his counselors, and all government officials, so that they make decisions in line with Your perfect will. Draw the Prime Minister into Your Word; and when he opens and reads it, speak to him through it.

We ask that You turn the heart of The Honorable Nir Barkat, Jerusalem’s mayor, toward You; that he would acknowledge his need of You and issue a city-wide call to prayer.

We ask that You comfort the mothers, fathers, and children living in the farming communities near the Gaza border. Give them an overwhelming sense of Your presence and love for each of them. As they turn to You, give them peace…and a good night’s sleep.

We ask that You woo Your people to Yourself. Draw them to put their trust in You, so that You are their refuge and their fortress. Save them. Cover them. Be with them in trouble. Command Your angels to guard them and keep them in all their ways. [12]



You are a great prayer-hearing, prayer-answering, covenant-keeping, miracle-working God. Hear our prayer! Listen to Your children as we pray for the peace of the city on which You have placed Your name. Rise up, great Lion of Judah, and defend Your people. Deliver Jerusalem from her enemies so that all the nations of the earth may know that You alone are God. Answer us! For the glory of Your great name!



I ask specifically for____________"

From the Heart said...

Heavenly Father, the prayers I just read I pray You will accept them as my own. I do not have the knowledge to pray as Anne and Peggy have prayed but I agree with every word that has been written in prayer to You for the Christians in Jerusalem and other areas surrounding them. I pray for our President and his advisors and all of Congress to humble themselves and pray as You have asked and You will heal our land. I pray for those in my family to realize the need to get closer to You and pray for protection as I pray for their protection and mine and LS. I love You so much and I ask for a feeling of security and protection and the ability to stand tall for You. I look forward to the day I see You and can tell You in person how much I love You and thank You for all You have done for my family and myself. You are wonderful, mighty to save, loving, and I could go on and on. Give me words to tell my friends and loved ones how much they need You. Praise Your holy name and thank You in advance for what You are going to do for Your children. Amen.

Heavenly Father ...

NEVER and not at all FORGOTTEN ... this 9/11 day and the many ...

In Remembrance of 9/11

“We do not make requests of you because we are righteous,
but because of your great mercy.”
-Daniel 9:18

Lord Jesus, we thank You for Your continual mercy towards us and for loving us while we were still dead in our sins. We praise you for rescuing us when we had no strength or ability to rescue ourselves. And it’s in this great mercy that we stand on behalf of our nation and ask that You protect us from those who would cause destruction and harm.

We bless those in authority who watch over our nation’s borders. Lord God, give them wisdom and revelation to uncover the plots of the enemy. Grant President Obama, the military, the national guard, and local police insight and strategies for protecting citizens.

We acknowledge that we are not saved by the size of our army, but through hope in Your unfailing love and truth. We ask that You would remember the prayers of your people throughout our nation’s history. We add our prayers for repentance, deliverance, and vision for Your calling on the United States. May we honor You with our wealth and with our lives.

Forgive us for worshipping at the altar of material gain and human knowledge, thinking this would give us security and blessing. Father, it has failed us. We come to You now and ask that You refresh us anew with the knowledge of Your son and a revelation of Your truth.

We proclaim Your purposes for the United States: to proclaim liberty, and to bless the oppressed and afflicted throughout the world.

We wait in hope for YOU, Lord! YOU are our help and our shield.

In the mighty name of Jesus, amen.

Lord,

We gather in prayer this day ... and

We thank You for the many blessings you have given us, among them the gift of life;
Let our hearts be in your heart, our mind in your mind;
Help us to speak life into this anniversary and this day.

We pray for those who lost their lives on 9-11;
We pray for the families who lost loved ones;
We pray for those who lost friends and colleagues;
We pray for those who lost companies, jobs, and resources;
We pray for those who risked their lives and health and whose courage and sacrifice lifted us through this time;
We give thanks for the grace they have brought to this earth;
We pray for the people and the land of New York, Pennsylvania, and northern Virginia;
We pray for all who have suffered and sacrificed in the wars and politics these events were used to justify.

We pray for the perpetrators of the events of 9-11;
We pray for those who exploited these events;
We pray for all who have profited;
We pray for all of us whose participation in unhealthy thoughts, disinformation and
systems has facilitated more killing, more war;
May that which has been stolen be restored;
May we all be restored to your love and your peace.

We give thanks to the millions of people who have contributed to our understanding of these events;
We give thanks for independent media;
We give thanks for independent journalists and investigators; authors, engineers, architects and scientists, concerned citizens;
Lord, protect them, encourage them, lift them up and let them feel today our appreciation and our admiration;
They have stood between us and the abyss:
They are “the repairer of the breach, the restorer of paths to dwell in.”
Let our resources gather to replenish and refresh them– their best is yet to come.

Lord, we know you have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, of love and of a strong mind;
Allow the light of truth to shine and spread; to restore, to heal; and to illuminate pathways to heal hearts and rebuild the wasted places.

Today, on this special day, we celebrate that all things are possible.

We give praise and restoration in the name of Jesus,

Amen

Father I agree with the prayer of Anonymous. I pray for those.families who lot loves ones. Love them and may they know You were with each one.

I also pray for America. I know You will be with all of us during the days ahead.

Peggy said...

Father, I boldly come to Your Throne once again for our beloved sister Denise! You know her ever so well and every detail of her situation and health. We thank You for answering our prayers and making it possible for Denise to return to church. Thank You! We pray that You will protect this promise and hope that she has in being able to go to church and nothing will stand or block this from happening, we come against the gates of hell and command them to back down and be powerless over preventing this, asking God to send all the heavenly hosts to secure that Denise can go to church. She so wants to be in Your Presence with other believers. Thank You for opening this door and we ask that You nothing will stop this.
Denise and her husband need You. This is a time to see a great heart change happen. We stand and ask Jesus Christ to stand in the gap and make this happen. We thank You for this again and again. Nothing is impossible! Right now Denise needs You and Your healing touch from the top of her head to her very toes. Release her from the effects of diabetes, the numbness or deadness in her feet. Restore her circulation. Bring another miracle of great healing to Denise. She has cried out to You as we lifted her up to You time and time again with faith believing that healing is in Your wings for Denise, that by the stripes of Jesus, Denise is healed and made whole. Denise needs You to make her wobbly feet steady and legs that will not fail her. We ask in Jesus' name that You will bring healing to Denise and relief to all this suffering. We thank You that You will provide for them in this lack of finances. We thank You that You Jehovah Jireh provide all our needs according to Your riches. We thank You Jehovah Rapha for bringing Your healing touch to all who come to You and ask. We are knocking and asking with Denise as she has done so often here for so many. Thank You Lord for all that Your Word promises. We claim Your promises for Denise! Denise loves You completely so please hear her prayers and ours so that this weekend miracles will flow from Your throne of grace and mercy. We bind the enemy in that household and all the problems that have been there, We cast them all on You for You care for Denise as we do as we humbly ask You to let this be the time to meet all of Denise's needs and her heart's desire in Jesus' precious name, all glory, honor and praise we give to You with our thanks!!!

Peggy said...

for our dear sister Alice ... and Cathy also that You will meet them this day where they are and meet their every need in Jesus' name ... much of the same prayer as above I pray ... (part of my first part lost part of a sentence or thought when I typed it ... I know You understand it ... so I briefly just fix this by changing the order for now for this one ... "Thank You for opening this door and we ask You that nothing will stop this."

from CROSSWALK "A Prayer for Spiritual Warriors" said...

In preparing my first message on spiritual warfare, I ran across this prayer taken from The Valley of Vision: A Collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions by Arthur Bennett.

O Lord,

I bless thee that the issue of the battle between thyself and Satan
has never been uncertain,
and will end in victory.

Calvary broke the dragon’s head,
and I contend with a vanquished foe,
who with all his subtlety and strength
has already been overcome.
When I feel the serpent at my heel
may I remember him whose heel was bruised,
but who, when bruised, broke the devil’s head.

My soul with inward joy extols the mighty conqueror.

Heal me of any wounds received in the great conflict;
if I have gathered defilement,
if my faith has suffered damage,
if my hope is less than bright,
if my love is not fervent,
if some creature-comfort occupies my heart,
if my soul sinks under the pressure of the fight.

O thou whose every promise is balm,
every touch life,
draw near to thy weary warrior,
refresh me, that I may rise again to wage the strife,
and never tire until my enemy is trodden down.

Give me such fellowship with thee that I may defy Satan,
unbelief, the flesh, the world,
with delight that comes not from a creature,
and which a creature cannot mar.

Give me a draught of the eternal fountain
that lieth in thy immutable, everlasting love and decree.

Then shall my hand never weaken,
my feet never stumble,
my sword never rest,
my shield never rust,
my helmet never shatter,
my breastplate never fall,
As my strength rests in the power of thy might. Amen.

Heavenly Father, the above prayer is beautiful and I feel sure it was pleasing to You. From my heart, AliceE.

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.
