Created in 1997 (from the South Texas Billy Graham Crusade’s Women’s Prayer Committee)  to be a resource to encourage and equip women to unite as prayer warriors to pray for their city and nation.  In September 2019, men became interested in praying with men for their city and nation to come to Christ. LPI was in awe of God and thrilled to include brothers in Christ to start or join a  men’s lighthouse,  and to experience the unity and power of united prayer in their city and nation.

Who Are We?

LPI, founded by Joan Courtney, is a multi-cultural, multi-generational, multi-denominational united non-profit intercessory prayer ministry. We are brothers and sisters in the Lord who unite to pray once a month in women’s and men’s lighthouses  for a transforming and on-going revival in our cities and nations.

Are you concerned about the spiritual condition of your city and nation and those who do not know Jesus? Would you like to pray with a local group of Christian Women who have the same heartfelt concerns?


God alone is the one who motivates hearts to move toward reconciliation and oneness in Him.

When God looks on a city, He sees one Church, His body.

When we, the Church unite in passionate prayer, the crippling walls of division will come down.

As we bombard the heavens with united prayer, Satan will be paralyzed, captives will be set free and be able to come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ before His return!

The Mission

To be used to glorify God by advancing Christ’s kingdom around the world united in prayer.

We Believe

  • The sacred union of marriage is between one man and one woman.
  • Life begins at conception.
  • God created the heavens and the earth by the power of His spoken Word.
  • Jesus Christ is God who became flesh through a Holy Spirit conception and virgin birth.
  • Man is sinful and cannot save himself from eternal separation from God.
  • Jesus Christ’s death on the cross is the only provision for man’s sin.
  • Salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ by individually receiving Him into one’s life as Savior and Lord.
  • Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, His body, which is composed of all men, living and dead who have been joined to Him through saving faith.
  • Jesus died, was buried, arose from the grave, walked among men, ascended into heaven, and indwells every Believer.
  • And Jesus is one day returning for His bride, the Church, to consummate God’s eternal plan for mankind
