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.

"Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. 
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken"      
Ecclesiastes 4:12  

This is WAS meant to be an interactive blog based on comment and response system. That's where YOU come in, we need YOU to help this "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. {in October 2014 a blog administrative decision was made because this was not as INTERACTIVE as we'd hoped} ...

We encourage(d) 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 
*all comments will be deleted*

Your PRAYERS are always welcome here!

This POST will remain as is for your

{when or if this gets too long I will try to post a duplicate of this 
so more prayers can be added to extend the time}


This BLOG is no longer attended to as in the past due to lack of participation 
of others and that it was being maintained by only a few

You can always check the DAILY PRAYER page in above tabs

* I am also going back into other blog posts and closing comments to avoid so much spam here, in case you try to leave a prayer on a previous one and it does not work... this is why.

Heavenly Father, you know the extent of Allen's injury. I ask, in the name of Jesus, that You will heal Allen and restore whatever has been affected. You are the great physician and can perform a miracle just as You have healed so many others. I give you all the glory for all that You do for your children. amen.

Heavenly Father I ask you to do a miracle on Linda's husband's behalf. I pray the ministering angels would camp around him and keep him in your perfect hand. Lord extend your arm of healing and make him new and whole again. Help his dear wife Linda with strength and peace and take care of them financially and in any other way that this family has need of. In Jesus' precious name I pray, Amen.

PRAYER REQUEST: Please pray for my friend who is trying to make travel arrangements. It is proving very challenging and expensive due to transit visa issues.

PRAYER REQUEST: Please pray for my mother who has been dealing with so much pain and various health issues. She needs prayer for feet that burn and hurt, knees that ache, and pressure wounds that won't heal.

Joyful said...

PRAYER REQUEST: Please pray for my mother to get help with adjusting her wheelchair and getting rid of the air mattress that she currently uses. She says both of these cause her a lot of pain. She has been raising issues but mostly the requests are not heeded. We need God's intervention and a turnaround from the "experts" at the care home.

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.
