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.

    Blessings heavenly Father. We come before You in awe and in thanksgiving. There is no one like You. Thank You for this day filled with hope and promise.

    Holy One, in Jeremiah 29:11 You have said,”For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” We lift this up for Baghdad today, asking that You would reveal Your goodness to the people there. Open their eyes that have been clouded by the evil and hate there and please let Your glorious Light shine in their hearts. Show them that Your thoughts towards them are not of evil but of peace, to give them a hope and a future. Christ Jesus is not only a prophet but He is the redeemer of the world, taking them out of darkness into His glorious Light. Please help them to see that You are a good and loving Father towards all mankind and that You desire good for them, to give them a hope today, a hope and future that is only given to us through Christ Jesus. Holy One, help them to see the error of their ways and their thoughts just as we pray You will reveal it to us, that together we can come together and honor and praise our Most High God. Hallelujah!

    Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. You are the only one who can change this nation. Claim Baghdad for YOUR inheritance. Let the world see what an awsome God YOU are, how YOU turn evil into good, for YOUR GLORY O LORD. We wait in hope for YOU whose unfailing Love rests upon them. We trust in YOUR HOLY NAME JESUS.

    Good morning my Lord,
    A new morning..a new day, a new week. Lord, I come to You with humbleness..bringing to You my heart and desires, for Your guidance, and direction in prayer. My heart burdens deep for our Nation, and for Baghdad. I ask for a covering of Your Holy Spirit over Baghdad. I pray for the believers of Jesus, that You may give them Power over the evil. Confuse the minds of those who are causing hatred and anger to those who want peace. But Lord, it is Your Peace these people need to know. Please touch their hearts today, and show them Your Son Jesus.
    Thank You Lord for all that You do, and continue to guide Your children.

    Amen

    Father embolden the people of Bagdad to rise up against the enemy. Stop the terroists from coming across the borders to cause harm to the innocent citizens. Father cover Iraq with your Holy Spirit so that all the people will feel your presence and stand in awe of the feeling of your indwelling spirit. Bring law and order among the Sheits-Sunni’s and Curds. May they live together in peace and love. Show them how blessed they would be to love instead of hate. We pray all this in your holy and precious name Jesus. Protect our men and women who are trying to bring peace. Thank you for each one. Amen

    Father in Heaven, I pray for the citizens of Baghdad today, especially the believers for whom this is home. Father I pray for safety for them and deliverance from evil and from danger. Save them from fear and terror and help them to trust You to work out Your will in the midst of trouble. Please help the authorities and army commanders to be aware of their plight and their need and to find means to help and deliver them. Regarding those who intentionally are destabilizing this city and this nation I pray that their plans will fail in every sense and that their hiding places and supply routes will be discovered and destroyed. Father in Heaven, I pray that You will give great wisdom to leaders in this war that has enormous stakes involved both in the middle east and in the world. I pray as always for Your will to be accomplished. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    MY FATHER, I ASK YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS TO BRING PEACE TO THE PEOPLE OF IRAQ. REMOVE THE VEIL FROM THE EYES OF THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN BLINDED, AND OPEN UP THEIR EYES TO WHAT CAN BE DONE IF THEY WOULD ONLY REPENT AND CALL ON YOUR HOLY NAME. ONLY YOU CAN CHANGE THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THOSE IN IRAQ, AND THE MIDDLE EAST. I PRAY YOU WOULD CAUSE CONFUSION IN THE CAMPS OF THE ENEMY. HAUNT THEIR SLEEP AND BRING THEIR CONSIENCE IN TO AWARENESS OF THE EVIL THAT THEY DO FOR A CAUSE THAT IS CONTRARY TO YOUR WORD. I PRAY THIS IN JESUS HOLY NAME. AMEN

    Father of Lights, We ask you to shine your light in the hearts of the people of Baghdad today! We pray for the illumination of truth in the minds of those who rule and in the hearts and minds of those who would seek to destroy. We pray for the peace that passes understanding to guard the hearts and the minds of our soldiers and all coalition and Iraqi soldiers and police. We trust in you Lord to do that which we cannot do without you Lord, to bring peace! We ask that you would search our hearts and reveal to us anything that is not pleasing to you, so that you might hear our prayers. In Jesus Name, Eileen

    Father, please add my agreement to those prayers above. Send the angels to protect those people who every day live in fear. Help our troops who are far away from home conquer the enemy who would kill, steal and destroy. Protect those whose freedom is in jeopardy and help the U.S. to come back to You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

    Kathy Says:

    I come in complete agreement w/ all these well spoken prayers. Our Father of Jesus Christ, Saviour of this world for You, Creator God so loved the world that you gave Your only begotten Son. Please give the nation of Iraq & our nation the grace to believe in Your holy name. I ask Your forgiveness for those in our senate who invited prayer to a non god. Forgive us all, this nation, for our backs turned to you. Help us to repent & be a godly Christian nation in the truest sense, reaching out to others, from our next door neighbor to other nations who need You. Father, would You please help us to do that without violence & war, even today wherever our troops are. Let there be peace in Baghdad & throughout Iraq & Afghanistan. I pray for our soldiers. Please save them all. For indeed Your arm is not short. Nothing is impossible for You. And it seems everything is impossible for us now. But You alone are God. Snare the enemy in their own traps they are setting for us on our own soil & in Iraq. Silence them Lord of all. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen

    Lois Says:

    Lord, Heavenly Father, and Holy Spirit, you was in the very beginning of creation. You are still with us and still showing us all the wonders of your love and mercy. Father, may you look down upon the land of Iraq and see how beautiful it is in your eyes, and the plan and purpose of her destiny. Let the people of Iraq see with their own eyes and your eyes how their land could become a land of peace, love, and harmony. Open their eyes of their heart Lord and let them see your glory. Father God, you are the God of all that is impossible to mankind, because of the love and wisdom you have in your glorious power. You are the only God that can bring Iraq around and bring the people into your lovely light, that will take away the darkness in their land. I degree Lord that the Holy Spirit will repair the way just like your servant John the Baptist did for your Son Jesus Christ. I declare that You will reign in and over Iraq. You are a awesome God and the ruler of Heaven and Earth. In the name of Jesus I pray this and give all the glory to you. AMEN

    Donna Potter Says:

    Lord, you are God over all nations. We declare and decree that your Kingdom come and your will be done in the middle east. Save souls. Cause confusion in the camp of the enemy; expose their evil plans, show up in the midst of them. It is time for you to act, God, your laws are being broken!

    Laura Cummins Says:

    LORD THE PEOPLE OF BAGHDAD NEED TO SEE WITH YOUR EYES THE DESTINY YOU HAVE FOR THEM. OPEN THEIR EYES TO SEE THE BEAUTY, THE AWESOME DESTINY YOU CREATED THEM FOR. MAY THEY WALK INTO THIS DESTINY AND COME FORTH GIVING YOU GLORY AND HONOR. LIFT THEM UP LORD, RENEW HOPE AND STRENGTH IN JESUS NAME. AMEN.

  25. 38
    Donna Says:

    Father, lead us by Your Holy Spirit as we pray for this city & its people. You alone know every man, woman & child – You see the plans of the enemy & know where they will strike. Father God, place your hand of protection around the people who long to live in peace in their land. Enable the soldiers & Iraqi forces to intercept weapons of destruction before they reach the public.

    Place in the heart of the Iraqis a longing to know the one true God – & provide a way for them to come to know you as Savior & Lord.

    May your will be accomplished in the hearts of your children that are serving in the military as well as the civilians. Give them insight and wisdom in all that they do. May glory & honor be yours forever. Amen
