Scripture: “He will have compassion on the poor and needy, And the lives of the needy he will save. He will rescue their life from oppression and violence; And their blood will be precious in his sight.” -Psalm 72:13-14
Prayer: Lord, There is none like You, worthy and exalted above all others. You humble Yourself to behold the things in the heavens and on the earth. You are greatly feared in the council of the holy ones and the angels cry out, “Holy, Holy, Holy” around Your throne all day long.
I bring the people of Baghdad before Your throne of mercy, and ask that You would save their lives, and rescue them from oppression and violence today. Send Your angels to guard them, and consider their blood precious in Your sight.
Allow them Your divine protection, and declare this hour an hour of “No Blood”. Make it a royal decree that covers every man, woman, and child in Baghdad today. Stop the hand of the violent and preserve those who love peace. In Jesus name, amen.
