A Blessed & Happy New Year

... let's start the year right in prayer for one another ...


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 ~ Today's Reading: Psalms 1‑2

My Prayer for You:

Oh Father, our God and our Redeemer, may Your presence fill the place where my friend sits with Your Word. Give her a fresh, new awareness of You. Give her the gift of knowing and believing You are near. Cover her with Your grace. Convince her that she is loved and welcomed into Your presence. In Jesus' precious name, amen.

Respond in Prayer:

Thank You once again for a fresh start - a New year, a new moment. May we grow like the tree planted beside streams of water - Your Living Water, Your Living Word - alive in us! Rooted and established, bearing fruit in every season as You enable us by Your Holy Spirit. Thank You for Redeeming us, Precious Lord!

Father, You tell us that You have become Our Father, that we should ask of You so here we are seeking, asking, knocking, lifting our needs to Your Throne for ourselves and our families and this world. We take refuge in You from the evil in this world and ask You to protect and guard us from the enemy and its evil.

Praying back the words of Psalm 1 and 2 today in Jesus' name. {Off to church and service, use me, guide me, guard my words and actions to glorify You and show Your love}

Today's Reading: Psalms 3‑4

My Prayer for You:

O Father, You are glorious, and Your Word is truly our help and our path. Will You give us two things today—the sweet clarity that comes from simple truth and the deep hunger to know You more? Lord, will You continue to make Your presence known in the places where we pray. Father, hear our stumbles and mumbles. Help us know how to begin. Welcome each one into Your presence with a joy that floods her heart with grace. In the name of Jesus, amen and amen.

Respond in Prayer:

[He] prayed continually to God.
Acts 10:2

Angie Knight said...

Father! We are so grateful for Your continual presence! Thank You for the ability to hear Your voice. Thank you for sending those into our lives that we need to continue this journey until we all make it home!

Peggy said...

Amen! and my oh my, how we long for that home! Give us the strength to wait and endure with purpose. Fill us with a renewed sense of passion for those who don't know You and are lost. Thank You for the sweet prayers of the faithful, for calling us and sending us to share the Good News of Jesus. Give us wisdom and more Grace... more of You in 2017.

Today's Reading: Psalms 5‑6

My Prayer for You:

O Father, You promised a Redeemer for this fallen world, and You kept Your promise in Jesus Christ. God, we bless You and thank You and rejoice in Your unfailing love. Take the truth of Your promise kept deep into our souls. You have seen our sin, and long before we knew, You promised a way to forgiveness, a way to restoration, a way to be redeemed. Move powerfully in our hearts. Open our eyes. Give new life to our prayers. Stir our souls awake. For Jesus' name, amen and amen. {I wish I had a link to these daily prayers but as far as I can tell you have to sign up for the email, I don't see them posted on their website - but maybe it's on Facebook-which I don't do so I don't know.~P}

Today's Reading: Psalms 7‑9

My Prayer for You:

Father, we feel our great need and the struggle inside. God, please be loud with Your love to every heart today. We need a Redeemer, and You have promised to redeem. Help us turn loose of every old way of coping and the broken ways we manage our pain. God, let us fall headlong into Your grace and declare with new faith that all of our hope is in You. We need You, Lord. Come quickly, sweet Redeemer. In Jesus' name, amen.

Respond in Prayer:

He has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature.
2 Peter 1:4

Today's Reading: Psalms 10‑12

My Prayer for You:

Father, will You keep making these truths personal to us—not some far off theology, but hope for our pain right now. We cannot save ourselves, but You have declared from Your glory, "I can." Lord, speak right now, maybe in ways we've never heard. Lord, do whatever it takes to crack any hard shell of indifference. Come into our chaotic lives with Your love. Get our full attention, Lord. Make Yourself known. Be a safe place today. Send the Holy Spirit to help us ask You, "Lord, come and be my Redeemer." Oh sweet Jesus, be my Redeemer, amen.

Respond in Prayer:

Draw near to my soul, redeem me.
Psalm 69:18

Today's Reading: Psalms 13‑15

My Prayer for You:

God, I pray for my sweet friend, that chains of disobedience will be broken today. She has been created to declare Your glory with her life. I hope she can see that knowing You more is the way to trusting You more. That obedience by faith is the path of blessing. Peace. Grace. Rest. Father, will You give her a greater confidence about the truth of the Bible? Send the Holy Spirit to show her how to trust You more. Will You help her rearrange her life around the truth of who You are, and then, Lord, will You bless every act of her obedience? In Jesus' name, amen.

Respond in Prayer:

When Jesus described the intimacy He wants with us, He talked about joining us for dinner.

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.
Revelation 3:20

Today's Reading: Psalms 16‑18

My Prayer for You:

Father, I pray today is a day of certainty—certainty concerning the presence of evil, and yet a greater certainty in Your awesome power. Lord, give us the security to live in a world full of evil without falling into fear and despair. Protect our very lives. Hide us underneath Your wings. Guard our comings and our goings. Wrap the shield of Your steadfast love around us. We long for the abundant life You have promised us in Jesus, amen and amen.

Respond in Prayer:

Our prayers thus lay the track down on which God's power can come. Like some mighty locomotive, His power is irresistible, but it cannot reach us without rails.
Watchman Lee

Today's Reading: Psalms 19‑21

My Prayer for You:

Father, will You do that grace-filled, Holy Spirit thing that You do? Will You convict us of our sin as You also extend the hope of being redeemed? God, will You prompt and prod and do whatever it takes to encourage my friend to seek You personally? For her soul. Her forgiveness. Her needs. Her future. Will You keep her studying Your Bible everyday, even when the news is real and the truth is brutally discouraging? God, will You reach down into the most sinful places of the heart and do the work only You can do? Redeemer. Healer. Savior. Lord, amen.

Respond in Prayer:

The more we pray, the more we shall want to pray. The more we pray, the more we can pray. The more we pray, the more we shall pray. He who prays little will pray less, but he who prays much will pray more.
C.H. Spurgeon

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.
