Scripture: “And when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left, your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.'” -Isaiah 30:21
Prayer: Lord, You command the symphony of creation. The stars twinkle, the oceans swell, and the birds on the mountains sing — all at Your bidding. Nothing is hidden from Your sight, and nothing is beyond Your reach.
I lift up the good men and women of Baghdad who desire to lead their nation and their people into a new era of peace and prosperity. The challenges before them are great, but nothing is beyond Your reach. I am asking, Lord, for Your divine help and divine counsel to lead them through the obstacles they are facing.
Lord, we acknowledge that human skill and wisdom are not enough. These leaders need Your divine hand of guidance. I ask that You lead them with Your eye upon them. Speak to them about which way to turn and which choices to choose. I ask for dreams and angelic visitations to bring enlightenment, and equip them with wisdom and skills of leadership that can only be attributed to You. In Jesus name, amen.
