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.

Father, Thank You for making me Your Child. Thank You for adopted me so I can call You, Abba, just like Jesus ... Papa ... I love You! I'd also like to thank You for arranging the adoption of our two children back in the 80s when I needed it most. You knew and You gave me the delight of my heart. How their being part of our family was so beautiful but now how all this has changed but not my gratitude. Help me to accept the way things are and let them be. I still will love them as You love me, but I will allow them to live their lives. I pray that they will return to the heart of the Father and remember us for raising them in a good home, providing for them and for loving them so much!
If their is any need of forgiveness, I ask that You work in all hearts involved and heal any hurts or past. Thank You for the beautiful privilege of adoption and teaching me how to let go and let them fly ... guide and protect them and their families in Jesus' Name. I give You praise for the time that they were children
that knew You and loved You and me. Thank You for the time that they went to church with me.
I have learned many lessons through adoption but I am sure there are many lessons yet to learn. Thank You for protecting my love and heart!

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You for making me Your daughter. At the very beginning of my life, You saved me from being destroyed, and took me in Your loving arms. I am so proud to be a member of Your family Daddy. I love You, always. 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.
