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, We know from all the prophecies recently that it is Your will for there to be victory in Iraq and Afganistan for all those who stand for peace and democracy. We know that the evil forces of terrorism have been cursed at the root. We are earnestly expecting the rest of the tree to wither quickly. Your power, Your wisdom, Your freedom is invited to be loosed throughout this entire nation and throughout all Islamic nations. All things repugnant to You are cursed things and will cease and desist quickly. Your love, Your mercy, Your glory fills Baghdad, all Iraq, Afganistan and all the earth. Jesus is magnified and glorified and received as Messiah. We pray in the authority of Jesus and say, Be it so!

    Father,

    May the eyes of our warriors be upon You , O God the Lord; In You may they always take refuge; Do not leave their souls destitute. Keep our warriors and those working for and beside them from the snares they (the enemy) have laid for them, and from the traps of the workers of iniquity , Let the wicked fall into their own nets, While our warriors escape safely. Psalm 141: 8-10. Thank you that if God be for them who can be against them. We love You Lord. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    Dear Father, thank You for hearing and answering our prayers. Statistics say that Iraq is safer than Philadelphia, that there were fewer deaths in Iraq than in Philadelphia last month. God, we pray for a nation that is in war and also for a nation that is lost. Help us, Father, open our eyes. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

    Father Daddy, You have called Your people to pray and we are coming together to call out to You on behalf of Bagdad and the surrounding areas…..Lord, cause Your people to listen to Your word in 11 Chronicles 7:14 where You tell us “If My people who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” Lord, we are a stubborn nation, bring us to our knees in humble adoration of You and Your word and cause us to listen and to act on Your word. You put it so simply and yet we make it so complicated….We ask You Father Daddy to hear our prayer and to do the impossible because we know You can……heal the land Father and bring Your peace to those who are hurting. Protect and provide a way for our men and women who are there protecting us to come home to their families, for the fighting to cease and for all of the people of Bagdad who are causing strife, to see the Jesus in those around them and fall on their knees before You. I pray for the leaders of our nation that the Spirit of the Living God will fall on them and no decision will be made without bringing it before Your throne first. We love You Lord and we trust You. Amen

    Dear Father God:
    Blessed are You! Faithful are You! I again this day November 13,2007, thank You for another day that I can intercede for those who don’t know how to pray to you. I don’t take this lightly the calling You have placed on the lives of Your true intercessors.
    Lord, it is with confidence that I come before You and plead our cause before you. Lord hear my prayer as I ask You again to intervene in the lives of each of our civillian and military persons in Iraq.
    Lord You are new every morning, so I ask You to do a new miracle in each of our servicemen and humanitarium alike. Meet them at the point of their needs; and only You know what those needs are.
    Go before them in each Battle, tear down each Stronghold, in Your Son Jesus name.
    Minister and heal the weak and faint in heart; give Mercy to those who never had mercy shown to them. Give the weary ones rest and a time of refreshing.
    In Jesus Christ name,
    Amen and Amen

    Blessed Lord, Holy God, we come before You today with great joy and thanksgiving in our hearts. You are the God of the impossible, hallelujah! We are confident that which the enemy means for harm You will turn to good for those who love You. Heavenly Father, Your children gather here to lift to You what appears to be an impossible situation, to bring Baghdad and even all of Iraq into Your glorious Light, out of its darkness and oppression. The world would say that is impossible to do but Lord, with You all things are possible. Father, I stand with my brother Wayne’s prayer here as well as the precious saints that come to gather in this area. Let Baghdad be a city of peace and harmony that will bless the people of Iraq and the Middle East. Hallelujah! Let it be so for Your glory and honor, in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

    Father,

    Your impossible solution is happening in Baghdad and most other areas of Iraq. The violence is down significantly, the children are going to school escorted by their parents, the businesses are reopening, and the Iraq police and soldiers are taking over more and more of the security tasks. We are succeeding ONLY because of you, Father, and your loving response to our prayers. We pray these things in total gratitude in Your Son’s name, Jesus, Amen. And we pray constantly for all the hearts to change, to open up to you and proclaim you as the One God, the God of Love, the God of the Impossible, for You, Jesus, are the Way, the Truth, and the Life [La Via, Las Veritas, La Vita] and we thank you, thank you, thank you, Amen.

    Father we pray for Bagdad and all the cities in Iraq. But especially bring Bagdad back to the city of peace it once was. Lord strengthen our troops and watch over them as they lay their lives on the line for us. Bring peace to this troubled land and all of the middle east. Bind Satan as he prowls about seeing who he can devour. Greater are you that is in us than he that is in the world. Work a mighty work for all who are involved and protect them from harm.

    Our Father,
    We bow before YOU and ask that YOU give wisdom and mercy,protection and encouragement to us.
    Father, I pray for our tired Troops and all the Troops who are serving together in Baghdad and all the Middle East.
    We don’t even have a true understanding of what they face each hour.
    Only YOU can make sense of the confusion there and here in our own country.

    The shouts of men over whelm us. Men and women seeking their own way. WE ask for YOUR way Lord.
    Forgive our Nation of all our sins, heal our own land as well as the Middle East.
    Help us as Belivers to know Your Truth, to clearly see Your way in the midst of all the confusion that comes to us over the T.V. and all those who seek to rule our land.
    Have Mercy on us, have Mercy on Afganistan and Iraq.
    Mercy on all those who love Your Name in these far lands. Mercy on Your children in this time of confusion and self seeking by those desiring power in our country and in the Middle East.
    Show Yourself, Precious Father, show Yourself with power and might, shine YOUR LIGHT in all this darkness. the darkness hides nothing from You!!!
    We bow down and rest at Your Feet, able to trust only in You!
    In Jesus Precious Name we pray, Amen, Dear Lord Amen

    FATHER GOD, WE COME TO YOU IN PRAYER FOR BAGHDAD AND IRAQ THAT YOU WOULD BRING PEACE TO YOUR PEOPLE AND HEAL THEIR LAND.
    PSALMS 37-1:18 SAYS-DO NOT FRET BECAUSE OF EVIL MEN OR BE ENVIOUS OF THOSE WHO DO WRONG. FOR LIKE THE GRASS THEY WILL SOON WITHER, LIKE THE GRASS THEY WILL SOON DIE AWAY.TRUST IN THE LORD AND DO GOOD,DWELL IN THE LORD AND ENJOY GREEN PASTURE. DELIGHT YOURSELF IN THE LORD AND HE WILL GIVE YOU THE DESIRES OF YOUR HEART.COMMIT YOUR WAY TO THE LORD TRUST IN HIM AND HE WILL DO THIS; HE WILL MAKE YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS SHINE LIKE THE DAWN, THE JUSTICE OF YOUR CAUSE LIKE THE NOON DAY SUN. BE STILL BEFORE THE LORD AND WAIT PATIENTLY FOR HIM. DO NOT FRET WHEN MEN SUCCEED IN THEIR WAYS, WHEN THEY CARRY OUT THEIR WICKED SCHEMES. REFRAIN FROM ANGER AND TURN FROM WRATH; DO NOT FRET-IT LEADS ONLY TO EVIL.
    LISTEN TO THESE WORDS SOLDIERS AND ALL PEOPLES IN BAGHDAD AND IRAQ!
    FOR EVIL MEN WILL BE CUT OFF,BUT THOSE WHO HOPE IN THE LORD WILL INHERIT THE LAND. A LITTLE WHILE AND THE WICKED WILL BE NO MORE, THOUGH YOU LOOK FOR THEM THEY WILL NOT BE FOUND. BUT THE MEEK WILL INHERIT THE LAND AND ENJOY GREAT PEACE. THE WICKED PLOT AGAINST THE RIGHTEOUS AND GNASH THEIR TEETH AT THEM; BUT THE LORD LAUGHS AT THE WICKED FOR HE KNOWS THEIR DAY IS COMING. THE WICKED DRAW THE SWORD AND BEND THE BOW TO BRING DOWN THE POOR AND NEEDY TO SLAY THOSE WHOSE WAYS ARE UPRIGHT.
    BUT THEIR SWORDS WILL PIERCE THEIR OWN HEARTS AND THEIR BOWS WILL BE BROKEN. BETTER THE LITTLE THAT THE RIGHTEOUS HAVE THAN THE WEALTH OF MANY WICKED, FOR THE POWER OF THE WICKED WILL BE BROKEN, BUT THE LORD UPHOLDS THE RIGHTEOUS. THE DAYS OF THE BLAMELESS ARE KNOWN TO THE LORD AND THEIR INHERITANCE WILL ENDURE FOREVER.
    LORD WE TURN TO YOUR WORD FOR ANSWERS, GUIDING, COMFORT AND PEACE. I PRAY THESE WORDS FROM THE PSALMEST WILL STRENGTHEN, COMFORT AND BRING PEACE TO THE SILDIERS AND PEOPLES IN BAGHDAD AND IRAQ. IN JESUS….AMEN

    Father, we call forth the destiny for which Iraq was created. We speak blessings on this land that has been so much a part of what You have accomplished in the past. Though it had a different name, You touched this land and brought forth Your will there in the past. Now, Father, let the whole earth see Your will brought to pass in this land NOW. We are watching for this and we will greatly REJOICE when we see it fulfilled. Until we see it we will continue to thank You for it. We trust You with the lives of thise people.
