*~*Prayer Requests for 1/11/10:

Beginning January 15th, 2010, ownership of Lighthouse Prayer Line will be administered by Francois Putter (Bloemfontein for Jesus).

Bloemfontein for Jesus is an Interdenominational Christian Mission, started during October 2008 for the purpose to unite the Church of Christ through Cell Ministries, Bible Study Groups, Prayer Actions and Evangelical Out­reaches to all nations around the world.

The idea to begin a Ministry like Bloemfontein for Jesus started way back in 1995 when I decided to finally give myself in full-time service to the Lord Je­sus Christ.

The moment I was baptised, I started to pray to the Lord to give me a vision on what my personal purpose is on earth.

The Lord shown me that there are many people online who do not have any other way to learn about Him than to be actively involved in an Online Minis­try.

I have told the Lord: “Lord, there are so many online ministries already active on the Net. I know that you are no Copycat. I know that you created me to have my own unique way to work with other people. Please show me exactly how you want me to work in Your kingdom.”

The Lord shown me in many things He want me to do. This is how Bloemfon­tein for Jesus started.

This ministry first started as an online ministry to represent the Naval Hill Prayer Mountain Ministry.

The Prayer Mountain is active for the past 7 years, but when I started Bloem­fontein for Jesus, I decided to publish some photo’s of the Prayer Group at Naval Hill. You may visit if you want to see more about us.

Bloemfontein for Jesus is not only an online Ministry. Although we concen­trate on online ministries, we also have some cell-groups, Bible Study Groups and Prayer Actions where we have personal contact with fellow Christians.

Anyone who has questions with regard to this ministry, or the future of the Prayer house Ministry after it has been handed over to us, is welcome to send an E-Mail to and I will answer any questions you have.

The Word, Necessary Food
By C.H. Spurgeon

"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word
that proceedeth out of the mouth of God" (Matthew 4:4).

If God so willed it we could live without bread, even as
Jesus did for forty days; but we could not live without
His Word. By that Word we were created, and by it
alone can we be kept in being, for he sustaineth all
things by the Word of His power. Bread is a second
cause; the LORD Himself is the first source of our
sustenance. He can work without the second cause
as well as with it; and we must not tie Him down to
one mode of operation. Let us not be too eager after
the visible, but let us look to the invisible God. We
have heard believers say that in deep poverty, when
bread ran short, their appetites became short, too;
and to others, when common supplies failed, the
LORD has sent in unexpected help.

But we must have the Word of the LORD. With this
alone we can withstand the devil. Take this from us,
and our enemy will have us in his power, for we shall
soon faint. Our souls need food, and there is none for
them outside of the Word of the LORD. All the books
and all the preachers in the world cannot furnish us a
single meal: it is only the Word from the mouth of God
that can fill the mouth of a believer. LORD, evermore
give us this bread. We prize it above royal dainties.


The Handwriting On The Wall
By Unknown Author

A weary mother returned from the store,
Lugging groceries through the kitchen door.
Awaiting her arrival was her 8 year old son,
Anxious to relate what his younger brother had done.

"While I was out playing and Dad was on a call,
T.J. took his crayons and wrote on the wall!
It's on the new paper you just hung in the den.
I told him you'd be mad at having to do it again."

She let out a moan and furrowed her brow,
"Where is your little brother right now?"
She emptied her arms and with a purposeful stride,
She marched to his closet where he had gone to hide.

She called his full name as she entered his room.
He trembled with fear - he knew that meant doom!
For the next ten minutes, she ranted and raved
About the expensive wallpaper, and how she had saved.

Lamenting all the work it would take to repair,
She condemned his actions and total lack of care.
The more she scolded, the madder she got,
Then stomped from his room, totally distraught!

She headed for the den to confirm her fears.
When she saw the wall, her eyes flooded with tears.
The message she read pierced her soul with a dart.
It said, "I love Mommy," surrounded by a heart.

Well, the wallpaper remained, just as she found it,
With an empty picture frame hung to surround it.
A reminder to her, and indeed to all,
Take time to read the handwriting on the wall.



Dear God,
Did you mean for the giraffe to look like that or was
it an accident?

Dear God,
Instead of letting people die and having to make new
ones, why don't You just keep the ones you have now?

Dear God,
Who draws the lines around the countries?

Dear God,
I went to this wedding and they kissed right in church.
Is that okay?

Dear God,
Thank you for my baby brother, but what I prayed for
was a puppy.

Dear God, It rained for our whole vacation and is my
father mad! He said some things about you that people
are not supposed to say, but I hope you will not hurt
him anyway Your friend (but I am not going to tell you
who I am)

Dear God,
Please send me a pony. I never asked for anything
before. You can look it up.

Dear God,
If we come back as something, please don't let me be
Jennifer Horton, because I hate her.

Dear God,
I want to be just like my daddy when I get big, but not
with so much hair all over.

Dear God,
I think the stapler is one of your greatest inventions.

Dear God,
I think about you sometimes, even when I'm not praying.

Dear God,
I bet it is very hard for you to love all the people in
the world. There are only four people in our family
and I can never do it.

Dear God,
Of all the people who worked for you, I like Noah and
David the best.

Dear God,
My brother told me about being born, but it doesn't
sound right. They are just kidding, aren't they?

Dear God,
If you watch me in church on Sunday, I'll show you my
new shoes.

Dear God,
We read Thomas Edison made light. But in Sunday
School, we learned that you did it. So I bet he stole
your idea.
Sincerely, Donna

Dear God,
I do not think anybody could be a better God. Well I
just want you to know that I am not just saying this
because you are God already.

Dear God,
I didn't think orange went with purple until I saw the
sunset you made on Tuesday. That was cool!

Dear God,
Maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much
if they had their own rooms. It works with my brother.
