13-Calling Forth Baghdad’s Destiny

Scripture: “For nothing is impossible with God.” -Luke 1:37

Prayer: Lord, in You we live and move and breathe and have our being. You are a God of wonder and glory, who rules the nations by Your great power. There is nothing beyond Your reach, or out of Your sight. What seems impossible for us, is nothing to You.

baghdad-sunset1.jpgBaghdad needs an impossible solution, and so we come to You because You are God of the impossible. We cast off the vision of what Baghdad has become, and we embrace the vision of what You want Baghdad to be — a city of peace and harmony that will bless the people of Iraq and the Middle East.

We agree with Your desire Lord, and say in faith, “Baghdad come forth out of darkness and into the light of your destiny. Cast off your cloak of violence and fear, and step into the garments of harmony and freedom that will bless your people.”

Lord, release hope and a fresh anticipation into the hearts of the Iraqis: free them from despair and enable them to see the possibilities. We ask that You would pour out a great big dose of the impossible over Baghdad, and usher in a new season for that city and its people. In Jesus name, amen.

    God in Heaven, I praise Your Holy Name. I pray that You will instill hope in the people of Baghdad. I pray that they will use wisdom and discernment in their decisions. I pray also that they will help the military by giving locations of the enemy before they strike again. I pray for a wall of protection around all of the orphans in Baghdad. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen

    Oh, Father God, i stand in total agreement with Joan’s prayer. Bring peace and protection to Iraq and Afghanistan, to the mothers, fathers and little children there who long to live in freedom and without fear of killings in their neighborhoods. Bring Baghdad to be the city You long for it to be. Protect and provide light for the paths that our brave soldiers walk and trod to illuminate their paths and give them safe passage while they fight to protect and liberate the citizens there. Heal all of their wounds – physical and emotional – that have occured during their deployments. Bring them home safely to loving arms and a grateful country. I pray this in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.

    Isaiah 42:9 – “Behold the former things have come to pass, now I declare new things; before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.” We speak new garments of victory and passion for righteousness in Bagdad. We speak that high praises for Jesus be heard and magnified into her very atmosphere and her soil. Let evil run from her territories. Let prosperity begin. Let her riches restore her good people. Let their storehouses be full and her children prosperous. Let your Will be fully done, In Jesus name! Amen With God all things are possible!

    Our Father in Heaven:
    Will you please gather some Iraqi people to daily read this web site?
    Iraq was just a very bad country on the map to me. Now, it is too late, I pray daily for Iraq and I’m in love with Iraq and it’s people. You Lord love them so much more.

    I heard that an American Soldier came back to America and saw the corruption here now and said, “I want to go back home” and he meant IRAQ not America.!!!!!

    Will you so kindly now pray for America? I want with all my heart to have my soldiers come to a home in America and let it be worthy of them on their return. They are worthy, our country is not at the moment. Please, pray for America and we continue to pray for you.
    Much love, in Jesus Name we carry around this prayer hoping for an answer. Amen

    Lord, we ask you to bring hope, comfort and peace to the people of Karrada today. Heal their land, bless the fathers, mothers and little children today and protect them from all danger and harm. When we hear that some of our soldiers died while trying to free the Iraqi people, it brings sadness to our hearts. Comfort the families of these brave soldiers. I pray that you guide the daily tasks of our men and women in uniform, shine your light on them so they may walk in the light and trod on safe paths as they go about their search for the evil ones who bring death and destruction to all of Iraq and Afghanistan. In Jesus name, Amen and Amen

    Dearest Lord:
    Thank You for renewing Your Blessings every morning. The sun came up, shining bright and ready to run it’s race and Your Blessings came with it. This is a Biblical Promise we can count on in spite of what we see and hear in the news.

    Lord, violence has risen it’s ugly head again. Evil eyes have seen with envy the innocents of Iraq stumbling like calves from a stall to rebuild, like Nehamiah of old, the torn down walls of Iraq. You Lord gave a season of peace and the Iraqi’s wanted to rebuild.

    But the evil men saw this too. Envy and fury fills the wicked men’s hearts as he sees the possibilities also. STOP HIM LORD, by Your Mighty Right Arm. Don’t let them succeed in permanently destroying the Work of Your Hands in Iraq.

    Yet Lord, tho we know that in this world we will always have trouble but that YOU have overcome this world. We must be overcomers. This world and everything in it is passing away. We live for the eternal that changes not.

    Help us keep this perspective that even though the evil men increase, yet You will winnow them on Your threshing floor and they, like the dust in the wind…will perish forever.

    But the Just will delight in living before Your Presence in joy and peace and the trees of the field will clap their hands.

    So as You and Your Angels, weave through Iraq today testing and trying all souls, separate the good sheep from the bad and strengthen good where you find it and scatter evil designs operating in opposition to Your Purposes.

    Love and protect our Troops. Give them Dear Lord a BIG HUG on Valentines Day for You are a GOD who loves wonderfully. In Jesus Name we pray, Amen

We now ask You to pour-out your love, mercy, and grace upon our troops and all those people in the Middle East who are seeking You. Show them, each, Who you are, dear Lord. Help them to trust Your Son Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour. Open their eyes, quiet their spirits– show them Truth. Please send your Holy Spirit to each one for conviction of personal sins, and to fill them to over-flowing with your Holy Spirit– once they get right with you. Have mercy on those seeking you, and open the eyes of the deceived to see You, and to recognize who You really are. Thank You, Father God. We love and trust You! Amen!!!

    Father God:I come before You in the name of the LORD Jesus Christ. Please stir up the Iraqi parliament to take care of the business it is responsible for like adopting a budget and setting a date for provincial elections. Give the parliament speaker wisdom on what to do to help the members come to agreement and take action on the important matters that are before them. May the members be moved upon by You to attend all the meetings of the Parliament,and to stay until the end of the sessions. Raise up wise,eloquent leaders among them who can persuade the members to action that is helpful in getting a sound governement operating effectively for the benefit of all the inhabitants of the land. I call upon You, Jesus, to be present in these governmnent sessions and to inspire the best thinking and action out of all of the members. Amen

    Dottie Says:

    Dear Father we know that in WW II there were prayers that were answered for the troops who sacrificed their lives for us. We are CONFIDENT that you will answer our prayers for our troops in Iraq. Help them to bring order and peace to the cities especially Bagdad where sucide bombers have injured so many people. Father we pray for your Holy Spirit to flood these who seek to do harm to the innocent and turn their thoughts to what is pure and good instead of hate and war. Father you alone can do what we are incapable of doing. Bring peace we pray in Jesus Name. Amen

    Judith Connell Says:

    Spring will come soon to Bagdhad and we ask Lord that You refresh not only Bagdhad but the entire country of Iraq. There are still too many men who feel they can lord it over women and children that while insurgents may use suicide bombs, they use fear and intimidation. For Bagdhad to become a refreshed city, there is a dire need to bring real peace and promise to these men in order to bring safety and love to the women and children.

    Jean Says:

    Blessed Father in Heaven, I join in praying that Your will be done in Baghdad today and in the days to come. Heavenly Father, I agree in prayer for the citizens of that city to have great vision of what can be done in that city and what it can become and to set their hearts and minds on how they can help bring this about. I pray for the city to be set free from tyranny and violence and war so that its citizens might be able to begin the task of rebuilding. Help the troops and police who are assigned there to find and root out those who would resist peace and freedom so that healing might come. May we soon hear of good things taking place in Baghdad. In Jesus’ Precious Name. Amen.

    Becky Says:

    Precious Lord,

    All things are possible for those who believe and choose to have faith in You.

    Remove the barriers of fear, doubt and unbelief from the minds of the Iraqi citizens.

    Reveal Your Glory to them so they will be drawn to You and Your Wisdom.

    Reveal the wicked agenda of those who would keep them in spiritual, economic and physical bondage, preventing them from the essence of life.

    Surround our warriors with Your Grace, keep them safe. Thank You for the many times You have intervened on their behalf.

    You are an Awesome God!

    Lois Lively Says:

    Oh Father, our wonderfull and great El-Eyon, how we thank you for loving us, and for the things you have done and will do in the future for the nations of Iraq and Afghanistan. YOU FATHER, love these nations and love these people with all your heart and soul. Thank you that you are the God of the impossible. Thank you for knowing all our needs and desires, but you just want to hear our voice asking you for help in the name of Jesus, whom you love and sent for our redemption. Lord, I now give unto you the nation of Iraq and Afghanistan and say for the Iraqi soldiers and to the Afghani soldiers in faith and love: “BAGHDAD AND AFGHANISTAN, COME FORTH OUT OF THE DARKNESS AND INTO THE LIGHT OF YOUR DESTINY. CAST OFF your cloak of violence and fear, and STEP INTO HARMONY AND FREEDOM that will bless you and your people.” Oh precious Jesus, I ask for your LIGHT TO SHINE DOWN on these nations and let your love dwell there. Jesus and Holy Spirit, please open the eyes of their hearts that they MAY SEE the truth. Open their ears that they MAY HEAR your Word. Lord hear their cries and let the enemy hear your voice saying “Let My People Go”. In the name of Jesus I pray this now and give you all the glory, honor, and praise that you so richly deserve. Amen

    “And this is Life Eternal, that we might know Thee, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent.”

    Dear Father God,
    You are our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, and
    Awesome Prince of Peace.
    Reveal Yourself to the Iraqi people and bring them
    to a saving knowledge of You. May they find the
    great love, joy, and peace that can only come from
    knowing You from asking You to dwell in their hearts. Let Your Spirit of Peace reign supreme in
    Baghdad and in the hearts of the Iraqi people.
    May they feel Your Holy Spirit power at work in
    their lives and be able to give You all the glory and the honor and the praise. Teach them Your
    way, O Lord, so they may walk in Your truth; and
    be with them to bear witness to the truth in times
    of pressure. Send Your mighty warring angels of
    heaven to push back the forces of darkness in
    Baghdad and to tear down the devil’s stronholds
    there. May they learn that Your peace which
    passes all understanding will guard their hearts and their minds through the power of Jesus at
    work in their lives as they call on You (the one
    and only true God of grace and mercy and peace).

    Mary Thompson Says:

    Dearest Lord:
    I pray today that you sift Iraq like wheat and separate the wheat from the chaff and bring Iraq’s wheat into the Heavenly Barn for sign up for the Book of Life.
    As for the chaff, I pray you give them two weeks to repent and get saved, or toss the chaff into unquenchable fire. This is your Word and You hasten to perform it.
    Thank you for doing a new thing and bringing a new season into Iraq so that the old Iraq living in darkness is fading away.
    Through the prayers of the saints the New Iraq is springing up daily into her new destiny of peace and prosperity and perhaps even a refuge city in the days to come.
    Hosea: “The Lord has torn Iraq but He will heal, He will strengthen Iraq and on the third day He will raise Iraq up.”
    Start to take off your grave clothes Iraq & Rise up! Resurrection Day is on the way.

    Alice Carrel Says:

    Father God, we know You are God of Heaven and earth and through You NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE. We stand together with Your INNOCENT ones in Baghdad for healing on their land and in their lives. Your designs are for PEACE not AFFLICTIONS. Please hear the unanimous cry of Your children, their SORROWFUL PLEA for PEACE. SPEAK TO THE hearts OF THOSE IN CHARGE of the destiny of others. STOP the DESIRE for RETALITION and REVENGE, with Your SPIRIT Lord give new SOLUTIONS, GENEROUS and HOHORABLE GESTURES, and PATIENTS. Grant them days of PEACE.In Jesus name I ask these things of You ALL MIGHTY GOD….Amen

    Amanda Says:

    I am not sure what to pray for this day but Holy Spirit I pray for wisdom and discernment. I pray for a spirit of peace to descend upon this city for more than an hour today. I pray those who promote war will feel uneasy and run in fear of the most high God. I pray they would see armies that are not there and angels who are huge. Cause them to run and stumble over each other not wanting to return.

    Thank you for every soldier standing on foreign soil today. I pray for wisdom and guidance as they work with a different culture and people. I pray for mercy for them and comfort as they lay down to sleep. Renew the minds of each one of these soldiers and help them to reach out to you today in Jesus name
