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.

    Father God, I come before your throne with a humble heart and say that I stand in agreement with the following paragraph: WE AGREE with your desire Lord, and say in faith, “BAGHDAD COME FORTH OUT OF DARKNESS AND INTO THE LIGHT OF YOUR DESTINY.” To Baghdad I say CAST OFF your cloak of violence and fear, and STEP INTO the garments of harmony and freedom that will bless your people.” Oh EL Shaddi; pour forth a mighty dose of the impossible over Baghdad, and USHER IN A NEW SEASON for the people in this city.

    Father God, I personally say “thank you” for all the beautiful things you are doing in Iraq and through out the Middle East. Jesus, and Holy Spirit, open the hearts of the people in Iraq, remove the veils from their eyes and the wax from their ears that they may see your creative handiwork and hear the “truth” from your Word. Change there lives and let your LIGHT BREAK THROUGH THE DARKNESS IN AND OVER IRAQ. I declare and decree that Iraq and the whole Middle East will be yours and will be ruled by your love, mercy, and grace. In the name of JESUS OUR KING OF KINGS, AND OUR LION OF JUDAH I pray and say Amen.

    Father God it is true Iraq, Bagdad and all around the world need the impossible today.
    In Jeremiah 33:3 You tell us to call on You and You will answer and show us great and mighty
    things. So according to Your word we call on You today in the mighty name of Jesus, We ask You
    Lord to bring forth cleansing, healing and forgiveness for the sins they have sinned against You
    Make that nation a joy,a praise,an honor to You before all the nations of the world for all the prosperity, goodness and peace You show them.
    May the people around the world praise You for Your mercy and goodness that endures forever.
    Give wisdom to all the leaders to do Your will and Lord we ask You to surround all our troops
    as a shield, protect them, bless them and bring them home safely soon. Bless their families,
    comfort and sustain them.
    Thank You Lord for loving us so much that You gave Your Son Jesus, that we might have salvation
    and spend eternity with You. We love You Lord and give You the praise and glory for all You do and
    we pray these things in Jesus name

    Father in heaven, I can’t say it any better than this awesome prayer of today that I so much agree. I just want to add that I pray for a new outpour of committed support and love from across the globe. Let an urgency build in the hearts and souls of national leaders, of Muslims, of Americans so we can pray the same prayer of peace and work in unity for this common good of helping these brave Iraqi families, help and support our tired soldiers. Please surround them with your Holy Spirit to strengthen and protect them. In Jesus Holy name I pray, Amen.

    Lord, free the people of Iraq from their bondage and blindness to YOUR TRUTH. Open their eyes. Take off the scales from their eyes. I believe that we are seeing the last days before your coming. May those who have never heard, hear and may those who have not known YOU, see you for who you really are- the one true God, the Savior, Jesus. May these people see visions of YOU, Jesus and may their hearts and eyes be opened. We thank you for the testimonies of miracles and visions that you are using to show yourself as King. Help us as Christians and believers to cleanse our heart and purify our own lives so that we will not be ashamed when you come to get us to take us to heaven soon.

    I come before you with my great request;Watch over my loved ones in Baghdad. Watch over the strangers that I don’t know, in Baghday. Thank you for for the special favors you show by honoring the prayer requests and petitions of your most humble servants.
    In Jesus Name,

    RW Says:

    Nothing is impossible for You , Lord. We ask you to do the impossible and we have the faith to believe that You can do it. This land of Iraq is totally out of control in every way. We ask you to intervene and to bring peace to these dear people. Help them most of all to hear you knocking at the door of their heart and to allow you to control their lives. We commit them to you today, Father. Comfort the lonely, the fatherless, widows, the elderly . Protect our military from the evil one and bring them back to their families safely. Thank you for hearing and answering us. In the precious name of Jesus we pray, AMEN

    Lord God,

    Refresh those in Baghdad who wait for the hope of Your Righteousness.

    We sow our prayers by faith watering them with our tears. Pour out Your Spirit upon the whole of Baghdad, dispelling the evil.

    “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” Galatians 5:22,23.

    carol in oz. Says:

    Amen to this! We recognise You alone are Sovereign. You are the God of the Impossible. When we find ourselves out of “solutions”, low on resources, close to despair, at the “end of our rope”, You are always there. You never leave us, nor forsake us. You are the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

    And so we pray that Your will be done for miraculous conversions in Baghdad….for peace…for the message of the Cross to become widespread, impacting the lives of all in that place.

    Thank you for the Cross, Lord Jesus, how it makes us children (sons and daughters) of the Most High God. Your infinite wisdom and sacrifice, showing how darkness is turned to light, shame/”failure” to glory and hope.

    We bow before Your Sovereignty, Lord Jesus!

    What appeared to be a victory for satan was, in truth and reality, the greatest event in the history of the world because it most glorified the Father. It is to this we cling and present our requests for peace to prevail in Baghdad.

    The Cross revealed best Your Father’s heart of love and best showed His character to the world. Thank you for Calvary and we lay our intercession for Baghdad at the foot of that Cross, where You triumphed victorious over sin.

    We worship and adore You for this greatest moment in the history of the world – in which You fulfilled perfectly the will of the Father and glorified Him – revealing His heart and character.

    May the message of the Cross be spread in Baghdad and the light of Your countenance be upon all who seek to save the lost. Amen

    Judith Connell, Greenbank, On., Canada Says:

    The Impossible. That is what happens just after someone reaches their limit. Where a person has been tested as far as they can stand and shout or whimper ‘Enough LORD already’.

    Thank you LORD for always showing us that point in our lives and immediately giving us the opportunities to grow in Your name.

    We are truly grateful for giving us The Impossible in all the war-torn and turbulent locations in the world. Bagdhad needs You LORD and we bow before YOU today asking and expecting an answer of The Impossible for Baghdad.

    Lord! That You would send the angels to fight the battles in the heavenlies, that You would clothe Iraq in Your mercy and love and protection. That You would clothe them with the garments of salvation, That You would change the filthy garments- and remove the iniquities , I pray In Jesus Name, Amen! Whie as snow! White as snow! Bathed In The Blood of Jesus!

    Father, bring Iraq to the place where that nation fulfils the destiny it was created to fulfil. We look to You to bring this people into the peace they long for. We will rejoice with them in Your victory for them.

    Dottie Says:

    Yes Lord nothing is impossible for you. I believe that the war will come to an end and the Iraqis will learn to live together in peace. Only because of your answers to our prayers and because you love these people every bit as much as you love us. We praise the military and the sacrifices they are making on our behalf. We pray for the ones who have lost limbs and had severe injuries and are home recuperating. Lord thank you for what you will do for each of these.May they put their hope in you and recover quickly.We agree with the opening prayer and join in saying we ask and pray all of this in your Precious and Holy name Lord Jesus. Amen

    Dear Lord, I pray for Your Holy Spirit to rain down on Baghdad. Lord I come in agreement with the prayers of my brothers and sisters in Christ.
    God you are so awesome. Amen

    Penny Says:

    Yes. These prayers are so rooted in scripture, and so faith-filled. When I pray them, I don’t want to pray them only for Baghdad, but also for all of Iraq, and the middle east. I especially want to be praying the best possible prayers about the establishment of wise and stable governments that God will use as a bulwark against chaos, terror, and disintegration. (Romans 13:1-7) That God would establish governing authorities that would function effectively as God’s servants to do the citizens good…that would bring punishment only upon wrong-doers…and would commend and support those who do right. Can we enlarge the circle of our prayers?

    Judith Connell, Greenbank, On., Canada Says:

    Wayne, you have worded this prayer so efficiently. The Holy Trinity will know just what is in our hearts for Baghdad. How can we ever thank you for following the lead of the Holy Spirit to free our hearts to speak to the Lord the words that He has actually given you? Christians must emulate your efforts. If we all do not make ourselves available to seek the Lord’s will concerning places like Baghdad, Darfur, Israel, Aghanistan, Serbia/Croatia and so many more, then we are not truly followers of the Holy Trinity. This is discernment not judgement! Again, Wayne and family, we praise you for being servants of the Holy Trinity.

    Lois Says:

    TO GOD, THE SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT BE ALL THE GLORY. Thank you Father for your breath of life blown into our nostrels, and that WE ARE MADE IN YOUR IMAGE bringing forth the Good News. Heavenly Father I come in agreement with all the other prayers before me about embracing the vision of how you WANT BAGHDAD to be—a beautiful city of peace and harmony–that will BLESS the people of IRAQ and the MIDDLE EAST. Precious Lord, release from heaven your SPIRIT OF HOPE and give the Iraqis a FRESH anticipation into their hearts.

    OH ANCIENT OF DAYS, all of us warriors for Baghdad an our brave soldiers come in agreement before your throne and say: “BAGHDAD COME FORTH OUT OF DARKENESS and INTO THE LIGHT of YOUR DESTINY”. To BAGHDAD and our BRAVE MEN fighting over there for peace and freedom I say: “Let GOD bring you BEAUTY in the place of THE ASHES, to bring forth JOY an DANCING in the place of MOURNING”. Father, pour forth a BIG DOSE of all your impossibles over IRAQ and issue in a NEW SEASON FOR IRAQ and its people. Father, bring in your LIGHT and chase away the DARKNESS over Iraq. Your Will be done on the earth as its written in heaven, and may Your Kingdom come soon. In the wonderful and powerful name of JESUS I pray. Amen

  22. 91
    Jean Says:

    Dear Father in Heaven, I pray that in Baghdad light will arise to dispel the darkness, that truth will be shown to expose error, that a purpose for peace will overcome antagonism, and that kindness and compassion will replace all animosity. Please let Your will be done in Baghdad today. May it be known in Baghdad and throughout the world that You alone are God. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    Rebecca Or. Says:

    “You have heard that the law of Moses says, ‘Love your neighbor’?*? and hate your enemy. 44 But I say, love your enemies!?*? Pray for those who persecute you! 45 In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and on the unjust, too. 46 If you love only those who love you, what good is that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. 47 If you are kind only to your friends,?*? how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that. 48 But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.

    Jesus, Lord of Lords, King of Kings,
    You said these words. Lord teach me how to love my enemies. To pray for our enemies, like you would. With the Love you have. As I pray and worship this day, this word came before me. I look around as a nation, and we have so great a number of enemies. Nothing is IMPOSSIBLE in and with you, Lord teach me, teach us all.Open our spirits,our eyes, to see things rightly with the Love of you. I thank you for all you have done in my life, please teach me, teach us all……
    Even so come Lord Jesus come, even so come take your Bride away, even so come Lord Jesus come, even so my soul longs to be with, even so come…

    Go forth today, God, and be the God of the impossible for Baghdad. Do things that only You can do as God. Let it be known that God showed up today in Baghdad. Wow! for miracles and testimonies to manifest all throughout Baghdad today and in the days ahead.

    Renae Says:

    “WIth God all things are possible.” We ask for a miracle concerning this War in Iraq and Afganistan. May peace come soon to these Nations. Give our President Bush wisdom in the decisions he is making. Comfort our son Phillip today (Army, south of Baghdad) Today is his first wedding anniversary. Bring him and all the troops home safely soon Lord. We throw it all into your hands becasue it’s too heavy for us to carry.
