What is intercessory prayer?
Quite simply, intercessory prayer is the act of praying on behalf of others. The role of mediator in prayer was prevalent in the Old Testament, in the cases of Abraham, Moses, David, Samuel, Hezekiah, Elijah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel. Christ is pictured in the New Testament as the ultimate intercessor, and because of this, all Christian prayer becomes intercession since it is offered to God through and by Christ. Jesus closed the gap between us and God when He died on the cross. Because of Jesus’ mediation, we can now intercede in prayer on behalf of other Christians or for the lost, asking God to grant their requests according to His will. “For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5). “Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us” (Romans 8:34). – gotquestions.org
Intercessory prayer is held each week on Tuesday at 11AM. Everyone is invited to come and join us as we pray for the ministry of The Lighthouse, as well as our nation, our state, our community and churches. If you are in need of prayer you may come and receive prayer for yourself during this time as well.

Please pray for the Lord's Salvation for Jill. Pray she would be freed from a spirit of rebellion that is keeping her from knowing Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior.

Please pray for my friend Gage's grandmother. She was diagnosed with a brain tumor last week. Tomorrow 3/1/23 doctors are going to perform surgery to see what they are dealing with and are to determine the course of treatment going forward. Please pray for the Lord's healing and wisdom for the doctors. Pray for restoration in the family and unity in Christ Jesus. Thank you and God bless!

I am 21 weeks pregnant with my 8th child and I began experiencing terrible tooth pain about two weeks ago. My ob/gyn told me I needed to get to the dentist asap because a dental issue can result in an infection which can get into the bloodstream and affect the baby. I went for the first time in 13 years and the filling I got years ago got a cavity under it and the cavity was so severe it reached the nerve and the only options are extraction or a root canal. However I only have Medicaid which only covers extraction. And extraction can only be done with me awake with local anesthesia because I am pregnant which is a worst nightmare for someone with anxiety with dentists like me. A friend of a friend who does root canals offered to do a root canal for half the cost of the normal cost of 1600 which is a huge blessing and we can handle that but unfortunately that doesn’t cover the crown for the tooth and with the added cost of 1000-1500 for a crown saving the tooth is unaffordable. I have to do something quickly because I can’t risk the tooth turning into infection and hurting my baby. So I have to figure this out within the next two weeks. Please pray God provides the money we need for me to be able to save my back left molar( I am already missing a molar on the right side). Pray that either God would put me into contact with someone who could do the crown for significantly less or that God would provide the finances we need for me to be able to save my tooth. And quickly enough that the baby is unharmed by this dental issue.
