1-Protection for Leaders

Scripture: “Deliver me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of evil and cruel men.” -Psalm 71:4 (NIV)

Prayer: Lord, you are God and there is no other. Your Name is unfailing. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne: love and faithfulness go before You. There is none like You, a great Savior and One who delivers the helpless.

We thank You that Your ears are open to the cry of the righteous. We come before Your throne of grace with confidence through the authority of Your sacrifice.

Together, we ask that You would protect and preserve the leaders in Baghdad whose lives are under threat. Lord, release escapes from death, we ask for Your angels to intercept and intervene on behalf of the men and women who are in positions of influence. Protect these people who will guide Baghdad and the nation forward in constructive and life giving paths in the days ahead.

Father, we bind the one who comes to “kill, steal, and destroy” in Jesus name. We ask that You would deliver these leaders from loss and destruction; that You would preserve them and prepare them to be the ones to rebuild this city and nation. We also lift up the Prime Minister in this time of transition, and we ask that You would protect him and give him grace, wisdom, and vision to lead his nation forward. Let Your will be done, and let your kingdom come, we ask this in Jesus name. Amen!

    DEAREST ABBA FATHER GOD in JESUS NAME the name above all names i agree with the prayer written out by the Prayer Patrol and I pray for all the USA MILITARY HEROES serving in Iraq and Afganistan safty , favor, and blessings that can only come from You and You alone for You are their great high tower and their shield that keeps them safe. I also pray for Your HOLY SPIRIT to call all those in the USA MILITARY that are not saved to receive a Paul like experience that will let them know there is indeed a great and merciful GOD and that after such and experience they will receive our LORD JESUS CHRIST as their LORD and SAVIOR. LORD please call all the Iraq and Afganistan people to repentance and salvation in Your Son JESUS as well. For it is His Blood that was shed for all our sins and it is only thru belief in Him and because of all that He did for the whole world on the cross that we can confess Him as our Lord and Savior , repent of all our evil sins, be forgiven and become born again by the Spirit of GOD that from then on we then can be counted as GOD’s sons. I pray thy will be done in Iraq and Afganistan. Come Lord JESUS come we all look with longing for
    Your coming to receive Your BRIDE, the Body of CHRIST, as we the believers in You are called in our BIBLE. AMEN

    Heavenly Father, I thank you for your beartiful day given to us, and how the heavens bring glory to your wonderful name. YOU are an awesome God who reigns in power and authority OVER ALL THE WORLD.

    Precious Lord, I speak to Iraq and the Middle East and say “HE will not let you stumble and fall; for He watches over you and will not sleep. The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade. The Lord keeps you from all evil and preseves your life”. Lord be with al-Maliki, and may he receive your wisdom. Give him favor from you Lord, and help his weakness to become Your power in his life. Be with the other leaders that works along side him that Iraq will become a city of Peace and a city that knows You as their God.

    LORD my Savior and Guide, to Iraqis leaders and to PResident Bush I say “THE LORD IS FAITHFUL; HE will make you strong and guard you from THE EVIL ONE, WHO WANTS TO ROB, KILL, AND DESTROY”. Heavenly Father protect also our soldier’s, and their famlies; give them peace of mind and joy that is beyond all joy. Guard and guide the Chaplains over there in Iraq and feed them daily with Your Word and the Holy Spirit to fullfil your call on them. In Jesus’ name I pray and give you all the glory and honor. Amen

    Let us pray and walk for peace. For September is International Culture of Peace Month, with literally thousands of pro-peace activities all around the world. May we, in our own communities pray as we campaign and encourage a “Walk for Peace” walkathon on September 15 through September 21. May the many districts across the nation create their own walks. And may it be a fun, creative, dynamic way to raise money and awareness about the U.S. Department of Peace. Amen.

    Katie Rhodes Says:

    Father God, surely You are sovereign over the leaders of the earth. The eyes of the Lord are in every place, watching the evil and the good. Oh, Lord, raise up intercessors after Your own heart. Raise up leaders after Your own heart, that Your mercy, truth, and justice might reach the poor and the afflicted in every nation, that doors would open for Your good news to reach each nation. I ask You to touch al-Maliki’s heart with Your love; guide him as a son; bring him to Your well-watered places and give him a teachable heart, a heart strong for all that You desire to achieve in and through him for the benefit of all his people. Protect him from temptation,from corruption, from harm. Work even in his weaknesses to bring lasting blessing to his people. Turn the hearts of his people toward peace,toward reconciliation, toward rebuilding and coalition with righteousness. Give him Your touch of favor to seek You, to do what is right in Your eyes. Let it be known in the heavenlies what You can do with even weak, or unpopular or ineffective leaders when they ask You for help, for wisdom and courage to do what is right in Your eyes. Let Your love flow out over Baghdad today, let Your love flow in Jesus’ Name.

    Father, we lift up the leadership in Iraq.

    Praise be unto God for a new day has arisen. Your mercy, oh God, is new every morning. Hallelujah. All glory and honor is due You, God of heaven and of earth. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is He Who comes in the name of the Lord. Thank You, Father, for the blessings You have given to us through Your Beloved Son. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

    Father, we read in 3 Samuel 23:3-4, “The God of Israel spoke to me: ‘When one rules over men in righteousness, when he rules in the fear of God, he is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings the grass from the earth.” Holy One, we pray that You will touch the leaders in Baghdad to be men and women such as this, those who fear You, giving You the reverence You are due. Guide their steps, Lord, and please touch their hearts and their land that healing might come to it and them, in Jesus’ name. Father, let Your Light shine over this area of the world and let Your will be done there for the furtherance of Your kingdom being established upon the earth, in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

    Lord God of the universe, creator of all things both seen and unseen. I give You all praise and glory. I come before You to stand in the gap and in total agreement with Your saint in asking these blessings for our government leaders across the country and around the world.

    Father God, bless our government leaders with knowledge and discernment to know the right things to do for the good of Your children. Send Your Holy Spirit and Your heavenly angels to direct and protect these people as they struggle to deal with the political demands and decisions of our local, state and national communities. Anoint all those You have placed in authority over our lives, to put aside their personal petty bickering and political differences so they can focus their energies and attentions on taking care of the business the people You’ve entrusted them with. Soften the hearts of our leaders who don’t know You and Your Son personally that they may come to trust You and rely on You for divine guidance and instruction. Relight a spark of decency in all government servants that will lead them away from the scandalous life styles that flood our newspaper headlines and evening television news programs with new disgusting revelations that so badly damage our testimony of peace and freedom to the rest of the world. Inspire these men and women to step forward as shining examples of how You would have us live our lives based on our Christian fundamentals that the founding fathers used to fashion our government and which are the very foundation of our country. I claim the promise of our Lord Jesus that whenever two or more of Your saints shall agree on earth as touching anything that we shall ask, it shall be done for us of our Father who is in heaven. I pray all these things in faith and believing and in the most precious holy name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. amen

    Jon Henry Says:

    Heavenly Father, Almighty and Merciful God of the universe, blessed is Your holy name. I give You thanks and praise and all glory for all that You’ve done and will do for our loved ones in harms way as they go about their daily routines. I come before Your throne in faith and believing in Your infinite power and wisdom to ask a blessing for the brave men and women in uniform in Karrada as they patrol the streets and neighborhoods keeping peace and trying to expose the agents of the evil one to Your righteous light. You are our Fortress, our Rock of Refuge, the Tower of our Salvation, our Mighty Shield against the enemy. Our Helper in times of peril and times of peace. Be with these fine young people who are sacrificing all they have or ever will have to help defend the Iraqi people and the spread of democracy and freedom. Send Your heavenly angels to bind all their adversaries and prevent the minions of the evil one from inflicting any harm on anyone other than themselves. Neutralize all the weapons of the terrorists so they fall harmlessly to the ground without injuring anyone.
    Supernaturally confuse the efforts of the terrorists, so as to deny them the success of their designs. Plague the leaders of the terrorists with dreams of conviction both in the daytime and the night without ceasing, of their wrong beliefs and actions that will fill them with sorrow and regret for all they have done leading to repentance. I ask for the speedy and safe release of any of Your loved ones being help captive by the terrorists everywhere in the world. Holy Spirit, intervene for all these requests and give utterance to the ear of God and ask Him for the things we don’t know to ask for. Make petition for Your saints and let Jesus, who is our High Priest in heaven take that petition before God’s throne on our behalf. We claim the promise and victory of Jesus over all that we’ve asked today and we pray all these things in His most precious holy name Amen and amen and amen.

    “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. ” Jer 29:11 NIV

    Theresa Tan Says:

    Father, please let every heart lay transparent before you. Jesus, you are the light of the world. Let your light shine into every heart to expose every darkness. Lord, the enemy is bent on destruction, but your Word says “All things work to the good of those who love you and are called according to your purpose.” So Lord, we thank Your for Your Word, and that You are on the Throne of justice and righteousness. And we thank You that this day the horrendous things the enemy has done can work to our good. So, Lord, we want to use this occasion to ask You to shine into every heart. Open blind eyes to see the evil in all the destruction. Let Your light exposed the evil, so that no heart can deny that all that destruction comes from evil. Father, may more and more people see clearly evil for what it is. Let every heart be searched, O Lord. Let Your light do this work of examination and exposure. Let every world leader’s eyes be opened and heart be searched. Let them see that there is no fence to sit on–either they work for righteousness or for evil. Let every citizen also see who their leaders are. Lord, we pray for your strength for the victims, and may they be reached with the gospel of your good news. Thank you, Jesus.

Here we have been praying to you, we love you and trust in your power and your wisdom. Many christians are praying and we hear that things are looking better in Iraq. We all have the faith that you are acting in that land. We continue to pray for safety and wisdom for those in charge. Make yourself known to all who seek peace for their country. We ask you to bind those who are doing evil acts against their fellow man.

    Corrinne Says:

    Abba Father, thank you that even though we are weak and fail, you are our awesome Father God, full of mercy and kindness toward all. Abba I thank you for the good reports, for miraculous deliverances, for the people who can start to relax and have hope that they will have their city and country back. In the name of Jesus, Abba, I cover every peace-loving man, woman and child with your grace and the Blood of Jesus;

    I cover the soldiers with the Blood of Jesus and ask and thank you Abba for angelic protections, amazing deliverances today and a pervading sense of peace. Abba, send your angels to disrupt the plans, strategies and coalitions of evil men. Cause even their children to see the evil they do, and to come and help the police and the soldiers to find and fight the evil doers. We ask in Jesus Name for a breaking of the bondage that would hold Iraqi children captive to evil men. Give them hope, strength, and strategies of escape that they would know there is a refuge among the soldiers, that you, O God will protect them as they resist evil. In Jesus Name, bring your lambs to safety. Amen.
