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!

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    I pray Your full protection would be granted to the leaders in Iraq this day. Please keep their minds true to You and Your will. Keep them healthy and do not let them be prone to any type of accident. I pray You will turn the enemy’s plans away from doing harm to the leaders or anyone else in the country. You are the great protector of Your creation. You have given the leaders skills to motivate people. May they motivate people to do their best and to work for the good of all in the country of Iraq. Thank You for protecting the families of the leaders today, also. May all the dedicated leaders who sacrifice for many people be recognized for how much they give of themselves. You are the best leader of all God and I pray You will lead all the leaders in Iraq to follow in the ways of Jesus. Through Jesus, Amen

    Your word declares that you raise up leaders and you put down leaders. I pray for those leaders you have ordained for leadership at this time. I ask for their protection. Send your angels to fight in their behalf against the spirits of darkness. Surround them with your armour.

    For our young men I ask that your love would shower them with your blessings and protection today. Guard them from any snare the enemy has placed before them. Watch the ground that they put their feet on today. Bless all of the wives and husbands who are at home doing double duty. Encourage them, strengthen them and send someone to love on their children in Jesus name.

    M. Thompson Says:

    Dearest Lord:
    Thank you for getting our Soldiers safely through the night and getting them up for a new day.
    Help them again tonight Lord. Send those Angels, wing tip to wing tip to surround their encampment so that no evil can get past.

    Lord, please be with our Soldiers every step of the way until they come home. Help them with their daily assignments giving sharp discernment and guidance as to where to go and where to avoid.
    Give signals to our Soldiers that they can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that You, Jesus, the lover of their soul, are with them and warning and guiding them in all their ways.

    Teach our Soldiers your stop and go signs and help them to trust You and obey.
    Teach them to pray and strengthen their faith in You dear Lord.

    May You flood the hearts of the leaders in Iraq with such an overflowing peace that they chose life over death in all situations. Please be the unseen, and seen, guest at all their Council meetings.
    Please avert disaster dear Lord, giving escapes from death. Also, today please let a cool breeze come to that region, giving our heavily clad US Soldiers a respite from the heat. You did that for Jonah who couldn’t stand the heat of Iraq, also known in antiguity as Ninevia PLEASE PLEASE DEAR LORD; do it again.

    In all these requests we petition your Answer and that right speedily. Dear Lord, make haste and tarry not. We thank you now and feel the answer is on the way. Thank you Thank you Thank you.
    In Jesus Name, Amen

    Father, Your Psalmist cried out to You, “O Lord, fight those fighting me; declare war on them for their attacks on me. Put on Your armor, take Your shield and protect me by standing in front. Lift Your spear in my defense, for my pursuers are getting close. Let me hear You say that You will save me from them. Dishonor those who are trying to kill me. Turn them back and confuse them. Blow them away like chaff in the wind – wind sent by the Angel of the Lord. Make their path dark and slippery before them, with the Angel of the Lord pursuing them. For though I did them no wrong, yet they laid a trap for me and dug a pitfall in my path. Let them be overtaken by sudden ruin, caught in their own net, and destroyed.” (TLB) We agree for the protection of the leaders in Iraq and for the peace keepers there, Lord. Thank You for hearing our cry for help! In Jesus’ name.

    Joan Gintella Says:

    Lord, we know how hard it must be to live in Iraq at this time. We lift up the leaders to you so you can bless them, protect them, guide them and encourage them. Their lives are threatened and the Evil One wants all peace to fail. He wants the leaders dead and he wants distrust between our soldiers and the civilians. This cannot happen Lord. You are bigger than Satan, you are mightier than Satan, you are above Satan and Hell. That is why we know from the bottom of our hearts that you are in Iraq right now and YOU alone are in control. Praise and Glory be to you Heavenly Father. In Jesus name, Amen

    Our most gracious and merciful heavenly Father, blessed be Your holy name. Thank You Lord for the precious gift of this day and all the many blessings You fill it with, both seen and unseen. You are an awesomely generous and magnificent God and there can be no other like You. Father God, I come before Your mercy place in all faith and believing in Your infinite power over all of creation to ask a blessing for all the leaders of this world, and especially for those in Iraq and Afghanistan where our brave men and women in uniform are serving. Father, I trust and believe that you have a plan at work for all Your loved ones and that even the ones who don’t know You and Your Son Jesus Christ personally, will be used by You to accomplish that plan. Send Your guardian angels from heaven to guide and protect these political leaders that You have entrusted to govern over their respective areas as they deal with the difficult demands of these troubled times. Fill their minds with Your thoughts and Your words that will defeat the confusion and attacks of the evil one.

    As our country prepares to elect new leaders Lord, the world waits and watches with anticipation of what the future will hold for us all. Your word promises that You know the plans You have for us and that it is for a good future and I thank You Father God, that in spite of the outward appearance of circumstances, You are in control and we are covered by the safety and security of blood of the Lamb. Thank You Lord, for Your endless grace and mercy that sustains us all through all we face. Thank You Lord, for being ever faithful to all Your word and Your promises. Bless all our people in uniform and all Your saints everywhere, in abundance beyond all we can ask or imagine according to the fullness of Your grace and the riches of Your glory in our Lord Jesus Christ. All these things I ask and pray in the blessed name of our Redeemer Christ Jesus. Amen and amen

    “O LORD, from evil men; protect these leaders from men of violence, who devise evil plans in their hearts and stir up war every day”.

    We do thank You for so much that has been done by Your hand in Iraq and we pray for the Prime Minister as he leads his country – we also pray for Afghanistan where the evil doers are beginning to stir up more problems.
    Father we ask that You outstretch Your hand over these two countries and bless those who would see democracy and freedom come and we ask that You hold back and to get rid of those who would only cause more harm and chaos.
    We trust in You for all these things

    Father in heaven, thank You for Your unfailing mercy that triumphs over judgment. Speak into our hearts, that we, too might love mercy as You do.

    Almighty God, please send Your anointed ambassadors of reconciliation to the rival sects and ethnic groups. Grant them to accomplish in Jesus’ Name what the politicians and military cannot: establish true Peace.

    Lord, in mercy, grant a change of heart, so that violence will not reign in Baghdad, or in all of Iraq, but that peace will rule men’s hearts, in Jesus’ Name.

I ask for Your mercy and love for the people of Baghdad, especially the leaders that have such a tremendous job trying to bring the city back to being a more liveable and safe place.

    Father, I come before you and your throne of grace and glory, thank you for another day to live and love you as my Savior. I thank you Father for your FAITHFULNESS, LOVE, EACE, AND JOY, that comes from you. I agree heavenly Father with all the prayers placed before you today.

    LORD my Savior and Guide, to Iraqi leaders, Afghani leaders, and 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”. Help them to come before you and pray “Protect me from the plots of the wicked, from the scheming of those who do evil”. Psalm 64:2 (NLT). Father, Son, and Holy Spirit please hover over Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Middle East at this time and season. Open the doors and windows to YOUR WORD, AND THE LOVE OF JESUS to the people of this land.

    BLESS OUR SOLDIERS father, and give them peace of mind and provide for them all their needs. I ask Lord, SUPPLY ALL THE NEEDS OF THOSE THAT ARE SUFFERING FROM THIS WAR. SHOW FORTH YOUR LOVE, AND GIVE THEM JOY AND BEAUTY IN PLACE OF THEIR ASHES. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit I pray and give all glory to Him. Amen

    Heavenly Father,

    You have set the leaders in place in Baghdad and Iraq. I pray You would reaffirm their authority among the people. Strengthen their resolve to do what is right. Keep them ever energetic when it comes to doing good for the people they lead. Do not let them fall to temptation or bribery for personal benefit. Please protect them from all forces of evil that may come up against them. You are the top leader of all the people in the whole world and You give us the guidebook to leadership. Please help those leaders in Iraq to frequently refer to and become refreshed in Your word. I pray Your will to be accomplished daily through the diligent leadership in Iraq. They are ones who can bring glory to You when they act on Your behalf. Bless them all today and every day, Lord, through Jesus. Amen

We ask for laborers for the unbelieving world. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We pray for those whose worlds have been erased by the tornadoes in the midwest.

    Joan Gintella Says:

    Father in Heaven, I stand in agreement with my brothers and sisters in Christ, that you would continue to lift up the leaders in Iraq, reveal them, make them strong and courageous and successful in helping bring peace to their country. Lord, I also notice that some posters are praying for our Presidential election here in America and asking for your intervention. I ask for that too, that you would put forth the person who will do what YOU want. The person who puts YOU first is who we need as our leader in America. Reveal this person to us Lord, so that we elect the one you want who will not destroy our country. The one who realizes that you are the only way Lord. We need you back into our lives Lord, back into America. America, like a lot of other countries, has put you on the back burner and Lord, more than ever, we need you. Guide us, lead us and open our hearts and ears so that we may hear you. As always we pray for our soldiers who are fighting for peace. Protect them from Satan and his demons and we pray that they know YOU before they go into battle. We give you all the praise and the glory for all that you do for us. God Bless America. In Jesus name, Amen and Amen

I pray that the leaders will seek Your wisdom daily, and that You will be a shield around them to protect them from evil, whether physical threat or spiritual. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name.
