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.

Day 1 - Abiding

It's been far too long since we have prayed or shared prayers at this "Lighthouse of Prayer" so I just wanted to let you know about Prayer Central and their wonderful daily devotionals once again. 

This one is from "ABC's of Prayer" [Abiding, Believing, Confronting] Since this is March 1st and Prayer Central begins today with Day 1, maybe you can consider following along with this daily.

Just click on Day 1 - Abiding and it should open you to Prayer Central to read the actual devotional or prayer.

Here are the other daily devotionals for you to choose one that maybe suits you better: 

May God abide in you and you abide in God
today and all the days of your life.

You're in my thoughts and prayers.
I have not forgotten this place, nor to pray for you.

Father, I thank You that You want to be close to me. I thank You for Your promise, that as I draw near to You, You will draw near to me. I accept the cleansing I need by the blood of Jesus, so that I can come into Your Holy presence with confidence. I rest from my striving, and I wait on You. ..."

from Prayer Central for this Day 1

then you can continue to another daily devotional that speaks to you like this one "Draw Near"... "My precious child, I am not the God who stands far away from you, I am the God who is near and my ear is open to your cry. My name is Immanuel, which means, ‘God with you’. When you feel that no one understands, remember that I completely understand and extend my open arms to your concerns. Pour out your heart to Me, for I am ready to listen to you. I will instruct you on what you should do, where you should go, and what you should say; My word will be a lamp that shines upon your path and My Spirit is a very present help in time of trouble.

Have I not told you, that I AM the Wonderful Counselor, the One Who will instruct you day and night. Even this I have said, ‘Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.’

Today I call you to identify your burdens and outline the details of each one. Then cast each one into My arms; let My shoulders take the weight, and work out the solutions. I will show you what you are to do but then you must let Me do what only I can do. Draw near to Me now, for I am waiting for you."

Father, thank You for carrying me when I am weak. I am Yours, now, and forever. Use me, anyway You choose. I love You with all I am. 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.
