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.

    Ann from AL Says:

    Father, I agree with my brothers and sisters that only you can change a person’s heart. Forgive those that walk in ignorance and darkness. Shine forth your great LIGHT and LOVE so that they may turn toward you and be changed by the blood of the Lamb. Open their eyes to the TRUTH and bring salvation this day to their households. Protect the innocent children and provide a way for them to know Yeshua. Bring forth dreams and visions that will guide them to you for eternal life. AMEN

    Dear Father we ask that you help the poeple of Baghdad receive freedom from sin. Help them to put their trust in thee. Lord all things are in your sight and you never look away at anytime.
    Lord we trust in Your Word for every needed answer. Your Word there is truth and the way to Life Eternal! Help the people to flee from all sin in the Name of Jesus.

    (Romans 6:6,7)
    Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destoryed, that henceforth we should not receive sin.
    For he that is dead is freed from sin.

    (Acts 10:43)
    To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sin.

    Help them to receive thee Oh Lord. With your Spirit they can overcome all the evil in the nation. We pray that they will lead many of lost souls to your Throne. In the Name of Jesus Christ we pray! Amen

    Heavenly Father, we praise you and thank you for the
    victory, peace and answered prayers. Today we lift up Sadyr City for establishing a city of peace, and
    security for everyone there. We lift up our Military
    the Iraqi Police and Iraqi Military, praying that they work together to bring about hope and peaceful
    living conditions for the city. We plead the 91st Psalm over our Military there and throughout the world, that you would surround them with Angelic protection, that no weapon formed against them would
    prosper. Let them receive the power of the Holy Spirit, wisdom, discernment and peaceful hearts,
    fill them with the knowledge that you are with them every moment of the day. Let the light of Jesus shine forth from them to deliver salvation
    not just to them but to the people of Sadyr City.
    Praise you and thank you Father, we ask all of this in Jesus name. Amen

    Sharon W. Says:

    Father, we come before your throne again and ask for blessings and mercy for the people of Iraq. We ask that you give them courage to move above the strife and anger of evil men. Show them the way of salvation through other Christians who aren’t afraid of what man can do. Teach them to worship you, the only true and Holy God. You are a living, all seeing and all knowing God. All other gods are idols and have no ability to see or hear. We lift our hearts and voices to you today, the only one who gives salvation. In the name of Jesus, I pray.

    Wonderful God, we are so encouraged by what we see in Iraq. We imagine and pray with anticipation of You calling forth Baghdad’s destiny. You are not done with this country. There is still so much more wonderful things to come. Keep working Lord in that country and its people. Make it shine. Watch over our troops that are being used as Your instruments. In Jesus name I pray.

    Lynn Says:

    Father, thank You for the amazing transformation that has taken place in Iraq! Not only is peace more apparent, but we hear of many Iraqis coming to know You! That help and hope can only come from You! Give the citizens, army and police there the courage and strength to continue the good fight for their land. Keep our troops safe as they continue on using the gifts You gave them to serve others. Command Your angels concerning them to stay watchful by their sides that they may pass by any danger in safety. We look toward Afghanistan and ask for Your hand in what’s going on there. Move over that land as well and accomplish there what You have done in Iraq. Jesus, I pray these things in Your holy name, Amen.

    FATHER – WE THANK YOU FOR THE PRIVILEGE WE HAVE HAD TO PRAY FOR BAGDAD THESE MANY MANY MONTHS. WE HAVE SEEN WHERE YOUR HAND HAS BEEN THERE OVER AND OVER. YOU HAVE BROUGHT A PEACE TO THAT AREA WHERE THERE WAS NO PEACE. YOU HAVE GIVEN WISDOM AND STRENGTH TO THE MANY OF OUR LOVED ONES WHO HAVE LEFT US AND THEIR HOMES TO HELP IN ESTABLISHING THE PEACE THAT IS THERE NOW. IT IS OUR CONTINUED PRAYER THAT YOUR PEACE WILL NOT BE JUST IN THE LAND OF IRAQ, BUT IN THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE AS WELL. WE ARE BELEIVING FOR CONTINUED VICTORIES IN YOUR PRECIOUS SON’S NAME.

Your great love for us humans who so often dissapoint you is unbelievable and I am in awe that you love us so much. Restore Bagdad and may their people live to find you as their personal Savior. Give wisdom to all those in authority. Protect the peacemakers and bring them home safely to their families. I pray in Jesus name. Amen

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    So much has changed in Baghdad and Iraq since the prayer of today was originally penned. Thank You for the relative peacefulness of the area when compared to former days of war and much bloodshed. Your hand has been upon Baghdad and to say thanks seems such a little word for such a big accomplishment as You have made. You should be mightily praised. There should be parades to honor and glorify You for the progress and lives saved and made better in the land. Thank You, thank You. You are awesome in the things You do. I pray You will continue to bless the land with peace and along with it an enhancement of the lives in the region with knowledge of You and Jesus and the peace You bring to live in the hearts of believers. I pray through Jesus, Amen

    Jean Says:

    Holy, righteous and merciful Heavenly Father, I look forward eagerly to the day that peace and stability have been established in Iraq. I pray for Your people in that nation who have been threatened, and in some cases murdered by groups with an agenda to establish a fundamentalist state. May there be safety for those who have been so harrassed. Some of them can trace their heritage in that nation back thousands of years, yet there are relative newcomers in their cities who want to take control and drive Your people out. May believers find Your help in their particular hour of need. I know that in history other nations have gone through the fire and Your people have survived, endured and continued to worship You, even if for a time they had to do so in secret. May Your people in Iraq be found strong by the power of Your might to endure through this time of trial and to ultimately see their homes and homeland restored to themselves and to their descendants. May it be so in Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Lois Lively Says:

    Heavenly Father, I thank you for this day to live and know again the joy ONLY YOU can give each morning. Thank you Lord, for the wonderful works you have done last year. We your children, know that you will bring forth NEW AND GLORIOUS things for the people of Iraq, Afghanistan, and for Israel along with the help, strength, and courage given to the soldiers of these countries. We say “Praise be unto You Lord for all the good things You have done for our soldiers”. Thanks for the wondefrul and glorious things that WILL HAPPEN in the Middle East in 2009.

    Lord God Almighty, I COMMAND “Baghdad and Afghanistan to COME FORTH WITH BOLDNESS OUT OF THE DARKNESS and INTO THE LIGHT OF your destiny. I COMMAND these countries to CAST OFF YOUR CLOAK OF VIOLENCE AND FEAR (to cast them away), and STEP INTO the garments (fresh, clean, and new) of harmony and freedom THAT WILL BLESS YOUR PEOPLE.” Lord God, the God of Israel, I pray this for Israel also. Give to your people the protection and victory’s like was given to David and Joshua when you went before them in battle. Lord GIVE THEM INSIGHT of your IMPOSSIBLE to alert them of your ever watching eye upon them even today, and in this generation. In Jesus’ name I pray and say all “praise, glory, and honer” belongs to you. You WAS, You ARE, and You WILL BE forever more our Lord and Savior. Amen and Amen

    :The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed. A refuge in times of trouble.”Psalm 9:9
    Abba Father, Thank you God for your protecting love. Make us able to face those times when we encounter suffering and hard times and be with the troops in Baghdad and help them remember that you are with them always. I paise you Father for your grace and mercy. I pray these things in Jesus name.

    Betsy P. McAllister Says:

    Lord God ALMIGHTY, You have already done what seemed to be impossible several years ago…unseated a tyrannical ruler and his family, made the way for the people to hold an election in which men AND women voted, caused much of the devastated city to be rebuilt, raised up a national army and police force, guided the leaders, allowed there to be a Christmas celebration in Baghdad, brought multiplied thousands of military servants home, and given protection to other people in ways we cannot even imagine.

    We look to You to continue blessing Baghdad and all of Iraq with “impossible” changes. Be glorified there, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as Your people agree in our thanksgiving, prayers and praises to You. In Jesus’ name, amen.

    nina Says:

    Blessed is Your name Father. I pray for continued blessings for this nation. Father help them know Your son so they may have peace. Jesus tell them with Your voice “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Help them know You and understand Your ways. Protect this nation and all people of the region who love peace and not hate. You are the answer and we love You. In Your mighty name I pray in faith, Amen.
