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.

    Lord, I heard a politician say that Iraq would NEVER be able to take over the reins of their country and that they really did NOT want to take over their own country. The man said it was IMPOSSIBLE and that the United States would be in Iraq FOREVER. Lord, you don’t know the word impossible, nothing is impossible with you and we ask you to work miracles in Iraq to strengthen the Iraqi people and the Iraqi leaders and let strong and unwavering leaders emerge now, and take control. Lord, if the present leaders in Iraq cannot handle the situation, then we need your intervention to remove them from their position of leadership and bring forth leaders who will not be afraid and who will not falter, send ones who can move this country, your country Father, forward into peace. You are the Lord over impossible situations and we ask for your Divine Intervention in this matter. Be with and protect our men and women in uniform and bring them back to their families safely. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen

    Praise be our God of The impossible! With You Lord ALL Things Are Possible! We see things through eyes of human fraility, I want to see things through eyes of FAITH.

    Zec 8:6 – “This is what the LORD Almighty says: All this may seem impossible to you now, a small and discouraged remnant of God’s people. But do you think this is impossible for me, the LORD Almighty?

    Turn the season around in Baghdad Lord. Restore this place to a place of beauty, a place of peace, an oasis in a dry and thursty land. Bring life, love a seeking in it’s hearts of the people. My prayer is they seek out Jesus, The Prince of Peace. Place a hunger within them that only Jesus could fulfill.
    Mt 14:17 – “Impossible!” they exclaimed. “We have only five loaves of bread and two fish!”

    The miracles Jesus did seemed impossible to us human eyes, yet he fed the crowds of followers with 5 loaves and 2 fish. So Lord, turning Baghdad and Iraq is in Your hands.

    Mt 17:20 – “You didn’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I assure you, even if you had faith as small as a mustard seed you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.”

    As I believe in your promises, and pray, my mustard seed grows… This is POSSIBLE, “SAVE IRAQ!”

    Mt 19:26 – Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”

    We serve a God of All Things Possible!
    Thank you Lord….Thank you

    Heavenly Father,

    Your words inspire great hope in those who know You and Your promises. I pray that the Iraqi people would know more of You and Your words today so they will be blessed with abundant hope regarding the future of their nation. Bless them, bless them with thoughts of a time when peace will prevail and all the violence will be put to rest. Baghdad was meant for peace and You are the source of that peace. We look to You in Your seat of power to provide the methods and means to bring that destiny to the land quickly. Thank You for the mercy and grace You will show to the Iraqi people today. Let them feel Your presence working among them and recognize that without Your goodness the enemy would have the upper hand and there would be no order except what was forced upon them by the terrorist bullies. You are so perfect, great and awesome in how You accomplish Your plans Lord. Make a mighty showing this day. All glory to You, Lord, and may Your perfect will always be done in Baghdad and the rest of the world. Through Jesus, Amen

    Father, Lord of heaven earth,together we praise You and Your holy Name for the grace which we have received through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice for our redemption. And through Whom we have the privilege to come to Your throne boldly to obtain mercy and find grace. Our thanks are feeble in light of what they should be to You,Sovereign Lord and Creator of all. Thank You for declaring that when we pray and lift holy hands,You hear us and answer. Today we ask that the Haifa area of Iraq and the Haifa in Israel receive the overshadowing of Your mighty power to protect and to overcome the evil which seeks to destroy the souls and the land in both places. You are the great God Who has said,”I am the LORD and there is no other”. Glorify Your name in all the earth and may many who are hearing Your voice offering grace through the “good news” of the Gospel open their hearts’ doors to receive forgiveness of their sin and the seal of Your Holy Spirit. And may their hearts become hungry to know Truth which is found only in Jesus. Give them that water of eternal life today. No matter their race,gentile or Jew, may You reap a harvest from the field today. May Your will be done in the destiny of each soul in those places today. We will continue to give You all the praise and glory for all things. In Jesus’ precious name, Amen and Amen

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

    Peace is possible in this place – your Holy Word tells us that nothing is impossible with you Lord God. In Faith we ask that you would pour out your Holy Spirit – disperse the clouds of darkness, bring the enemy into your light and begin creating them into your likeness. Crush their hearts so they will cry out to you – strengthen those who are already serving you and keep them under the shadow of your wing.

    May those who love you never lose their faith or their hope that one day the weapons of war will fall out of the hands of the evil and their eyes will see your glory, your ears will hear your call of repentance, their knees will bend and they will rise and begin serving the oppressed with you rather than fighting against you.

    Lord, As stated you delight in being the Lord of the impossible. At this time peace seems impossible there. But we know that you can move and change hearts. We ask that today peace begins to find a home in Iraq. Please protect two soldier friends who are on their way there to do their second tour of duty. Keep Brannon and Brent safe as they serve you on the fields of war. Please keep them strong and give them many opportunities to show your love. In Jesus’ name, Amen

    Praising God for the safe return of the airforce men and women from one more deployment to Iraq from Dover AFB. They were part of a unit made up of other AirForce members from many bases who spent 2 months training before a 6 month deployment. For many this was there 3rd deployment.

    Father You truly are an awesome God and worthy of our praise. You are the Holy Lord of Glory and nothing is impossible for You. We ask for a hedge of protection for the innocent people in Iraq that are longing for peace. Father please stop the enemy that wants to bring death and destruction to Iraq and be glorified in the eyes of the people there. Reveal Yourself to those that have not come to know You yet and bring them into Your kingdom.
    Bless Bagdad with Your sweet peace and pour out Your salvation today in Jesus name

    Oh Lord, how Majestic is Your Name in all of the earth!!!! You have the power and control to release this city from oppression. Please, Lord, will You please show Your compassion to the people of this city who have lived in torment for so long. Let them feel Your love for them, I pray.
    Enclose a wall of protection around Baghdad and let them have better days.
    In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name I pray. Amen

    In the name of Jesus I speak life and bind up a spirit of death in this city. I bind every evil thing that would come against the Spirit of God and loosen God’s Holy Spirit and Love in this city, because His love never fails!

    Judith E. Connell Says:

    Impossible! We Christians often do not ascribe words like this to our incredible God. Lord, please accept our humble prayers using words that give You the phenomenal outlook You alone deserve. Please accept our request for You to do the ‘impossible’ for Bagdhad because without Your chosen ‘impossible’ the entire country of Iraq will never come through this war unscathed.

  25. 263
    HE is the same yesterday, today and forever. Amen Says:

    Father God,
    We praise You for Your Unchanging Character. We need Your Constancy in all the chaos we have wrought on ourselves as human beings. You set the self-governing principle of Free Will in Your Creation of the Angels and in the Creation of Humanity. Remind us of the spiritual implications of this principle.

    Your Holy Word and confirmation from Your Holy Spirit dwelling in and among believers, confirms that You will never force Your Divine Nature, on anyone.

    Still, we have reason to be hopeful for the Iraqi people and all others who do not yet know You. We have this hope because Your Word tells us that You have Imprinted Your Indelible Divine Image on the hearts of those who have, are and will live on planet earth before Your Son’s return to take the Faithful to Your Throne Room of Praise and Glory.

    We know without any doubt that those who listen to the spiritual nudges of their own hearts will discover the words You have written on their hearts. Bless them with the courage to continue to seek You in faith among the violence and collective purposes of chaos.

    May You bring mature Christians into the path of each seeker. May they bear and share Your Image Well and provide guidance and wisdom as well as tangible and spiritual support and protection among the violence. We desperately desire for the Iraqis, regardless of faction, who do not yet know You, witness firsthand how You can turn Spiritual violence into spiritual solutions which will heal both our nations.

    While we do not fully understand the Mysteries of Your Nature and when, why and how You choose to work in our lives and respond to our prayers, we are confident that You do so in ways that are consistent with Your Divine Nature.

    May we seek You, Father, with all our hearts and lead and mentor by example as the infrastructure of a nation begins to unfold. May seekers across the globe and especially in Iraq and Afghanistan listen to Your Voice emanating from their hearts and, as a result, freely surrender their will to Yours.

    May those of us on patrol do the same. We want to exchange bullets for Bibles and the eternal power that emanates from You, Your Word, Your Holy Spirit and the Prince of Peace who is our Divine Brother, Ambassador and Savior. In Jesus most Precious Name, I pray, Amen.
