Intercessory Prayer

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.

Prayers for my cousin Carlos, who is struggling with substance abuse and has just lost his way. Prayers that he may be able to find the help that he needs and come to the Lord.

Please pray that I receive total deliverance from spiritual harassment/torment, nightmares, hearing evil voices at night, feeling invisible beings on me/attacking me, and being unable to sleep at times.

This has been a hard month. We are a large family with seven kids and it has gotten increasingly difficult financially over the last two years. In the last month we have had our water heater go out, my husband have two teeth(a wisdom tooth and molar) have to be removed with no insurance, my brakes have to be replaced (still haven’t done that) and now we just found out that our air that had quit working a couple of weeks ago is a major refrigerant leak and the entire unit has to be replaced which is thousands of dollars. I feel so overwhelmed and so discouraged. I am working two part time jobs plus homeschooling 6 kids and my husband is working 6-7 days a week to where we don’t even get to see him much and I feel often times like a single mom. I am just so tired of struggling and so discouraged. Please pray for us not just for a financial blessing or miracle but for strength peace and encouragement. I am so weary and it feels like a giant weight on me. We are working so hard to provide and we are just hit with thing after thing plunging us further into debt. We need intercession and I just really need strength and encouragement that can only come from God.

Please pray for my friend Jim. He's in stage 5 kidney failure. Doctors are telling him he isn't healthy enough for a transplant. Pray God would grant him the health he needs to have the much needed surgery. Pray God would give him the strength he needs for his role at two ministries in the morning. Thank you and God bless!
