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, You alone know what will happen to all of us, and you alone controls what happens in Bagdad. We thank you for your sovereignty in all situations and being able to rely on you always. Amen.

    Dear Father in Heaven, how great You are, how kind and how wise. Father, I come before You in prayer today sensing that the need for intercession is very great. Please have mercy on the citizens of Iraq, and on all of us. Father, this has been a strange week in my line of sight with many strange and troublesome events, not the least of which is yesterdays series of bombings in the southern Iraqi city. Yet, You alone are Lord over all. Please help us whom You have called to prayer to be diligent and fervent, and to keep our own lives in order before Your presence and under the leadership of Your Spirit. Help us to not neglect to do the things that honor You, to give careful attention to Your Word, to prayer, and to fellowship with others. I pray also for Wayne and Kathleen Dillard to be led by Your Spirit as they balance their ministry in Asia with the call upon their lives to provide this prayer forum. May they remain close to You in all of this so that they might be guided by Your wisdom. Please renew Your people. Restore our faithfulness to respond to Your call and may we again see great things as You respond in answer to prayer. Father, let it be Your will that is done in Baghdad and in all of Iraq and may the powers of the evil one be restrained and prevented from doing harm. May it be in Jesus’ Lovely, Holy Name. Amen.

    We thank you for the good results that are coming forth now in so many areas of Iraq. May there be total peace in this Nation Lord. Continue to give wisdom to the leaders of our soldiers and the Iraqi people. May those who are against freedom and peace in Iraq be uprooted soon Lord. Do the impossible. May there be a mighty move of your Holy Spirit across this land to convict and show the people who Jesus is. Encourage our troops through this Christmas Season. We love you Lord Jesus. Amen.

    Father,
    We thank you for the work You are doing in Iraq and Afghanistan. We call forth Your angels to minister to these precious people that You love. We declare that they will no longer be known as Sunnis and Shias but as the people who have seen a great Light and no longer walk in darkness. We declare that they will be one family in You. We speak healing over their hurting hearts for the many losses they have suffered. With man this is impossible, but with You all things are possible. May the Iraqi and Afghan people be a people known for their great love for You. May they truly come to know the Prince of Peace whose birth we celebrate at Christmas.

    Betsy Says:

    Father, as we celebrate the birth of Your Son, I pray that there will be those in Baghdad, Iraq and Afghanistan who will be stricken with curiosity about why people all over the Earth honor this event. May they question why it is that there is no Muslim holy day that the whole world celbrates. May they seek an answer to this question, as well as why the Resurrection is celebrated world wide, and why the calendar is established around the life of Jesus, not Mohammed. Father, Please turn hearts to Your Son today, and may they know spiritual freedom this very day. In Jesus’ name I am asking for the heathen and the uttermost parts of the earth. Amen.

    Heavenly Father,

    I am in total agreement with the prayer for today and pray that Baghdad’s destiny would be shining forth like the sunlight into the world today. Remove the dark clouds of violence which have hovered over the city for too long casting shadows that seem too big to overcome. Nothing is impossible with You so we pray this BIG prayer for Your peace to reign today and all days in Baghdad and Iraq. You are BIG God, more than we can imagine and You alone have the BIG solutions. May You each day be glorified by Your BIG actions that can only come from You. Our knowledge and ability is little so we look to You in this way Jesus taught us. We pray. May Your will be done. Through Jesus, Amen

    ‘Nothing is a impossible with God’is what the angel told Mary as she was about to conceive the son of God in her womb. I claim this truth today over this troubled area. In the Name of Jesus I pray.

    Dear Heavenly Father, Especially because of recent events, I pray for Your mercy for these precious people. I pray for heavenly angels to protect them and earthly angels to bring them comfort and lift them. What seems impossible for us is not even a blink of an for You Lord.

    God of wonder and might, the earth is filled with Your glory. The works of Your hands are seen every where. Your splendor is all around us and we are in awe of You.

    Heavenly Father, we continue to pray for peace to be brought to this land. Lord, there is no coincidence that things are named as they are. You have called this to be a city of peace and we name it and claim it in Jesus’ name, for Your glory and honor. Baghdad, as God once named you, we call you “Madinat Al- Salam”, city of peace. Come forth in His Light and rise up to be all He has called you to be. Father, we ask that You upgird these people and those fighting on their behalf by Your Spirit and reveal Your plans for them, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

    MThompson Says:

    Dear Lord,
    Today we want to thank you again for this means of communication where all the people of the earth can pray together towards a peaceful Iraq. We ask you dear Lord to even draw somehow alot of the Iraqi people to this very site of prayers for them and their plight.
    Through this means let them see our Soldiers in a new light. Let them rethink their plans of destruction and instead decide to help.
    Let the Iraqi people immediately hate the violence and prefer rather to see the possibilities of living prosperously again in peace and harmony. Let the Iraqi’s soon return to work safely so they can support their families and regain a life that is purposeful and peaceful.
    Let them see the possibilities of what peace would be for them and their families to not have to live in daily upheaval,violence and fear.
    Please Dear Lord, let the Iraqi people see our Soldiers as those who have come to help that happen for them. Convict their hearts to get rid of all hatred and feel the peace of Jesus who alone can bring that kind of miracle and PEACE!!!
    Thank you Dear Lord for I know you hear our prayers. In Jesus Name we pray believing.
    To any Iraqi’s that might be reading, I say hello from America. As you can see we do love you in Jesus Name and we hope for the best for you and your precious families.
    Sincerely, MT

    Jean Says:

    Dear Loving Father in Heaven, I pray for Your will and purposes to be fulfilled in Baghdad today, and may that city soon be restored to peace and stability. Bless, strengthen and help all who are working toward that purpose today and enable them to overcome evil with their good deeds. I pray that the citizens of that city and that nation might be released from the hold of violence and wrong thinking. May the unseen spiritual forces for evil that have been working havoc in hearts and minds and enticing people to wrongdoing be made to flee. Please send Your help today in mighty power. May the frightened citizens and the victims of this conflict also find help and safety.

    Dear Father, help us, as we pray and speak as representatives of You to be very careful to do so according to the truth You have revealed in Your Word so that we might have the joy of seeing prayers answered. Help us to be convicted and to remember that You will not violate Who You are or honor prayers that have not been truly offered in reverence and obedience to You. You will not honor man-made religion or the pride of man, so help us to diligenty seek You and bow to You so that we may truly pray in Jesus’ Name. You alone are God, and we are not. May Your Word and Your Name be honored, and may You be blessed as many turn to You. Help us to come to You and to pray with a humble heart and recognition of our dependence on You. May we never forget the awesomeness of Your majesty, even though You have been gracious and kind to draw near to us when we come to You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    Our great and glorious El-Elyon YOU are the one that rules the nations. YOU are the one that gave us the beathe of life. FATHER GOD, I thank you that NOTHING IS BEYOND YOUR REACH, OR OUT OF YOUR SIGHT. Thank you Father that YOU are the GOD of all the impossible, when its impossible for all mankind.

    Heavenly Father I SPEAK FORTH in faith and say to Baghdad “COME FORTH OUT OF YOUR DARKENESS, and STEP INTO the light of your destiny.” I say unto you Baghdad “Take your cloak of fear and violence and CAST IT OFF, AND PLACE ON THE GARMENTS OF HARMONY AND FREEDOM UPON YOU THAT WILL BLESS YOUR PEOPLE.” LORD, pour out a large dose of the impossible over Baghdad, and usher in a NEW SEASON for this city and its people. In the name of Jesus I pray this and may ALL THE GLORY go to you Lord. Amen

    Heavenly Father, Thank you is such a small word for such an awesome God. The news from Baghdad and Iraq is truly a miracle and we give you praise and honor. Just as King David loved his warriors, Lord, I know that you love our soldiers. They are brave beyond measure and deserve the highest honor for their service. I pray for them right now Lord for their safety and blessing as they stand to fight or as they rest. Bless the leaders of these men and give them wisdom and understanding of the enemy. In Jesus dear name I pray.

    Dan Says:

    Lord, nothing is impossible for You. You can turn everything for good for Baghdad. Yes, the Blood of Jesus Christ has all power to turn history. May it be said of Baghdad, “that after Jesus showed up everything changed”. Lord, this is the time for Your possibilities to manifest.
