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!

    Dear Lord:
    In a day when political persuasions could put leaders in grave danger, it is astonishing to see men still rise up to leadership positions.

    This must mean that YOU have raised them up and we pray for their protection from all harm.
    Please cover the leaders with your promises in Psalm 91, even if they don’t know you Lord.
    Help them in all their efforts to bring peace and civilization back to the wartorn countries of Iraq and Afghanistan and Israel. For all the Nations are “but a drop in a bucket before You.”

    Please be with each countrie’s leaders as they hold counsel meetings and guide them in their decisions and provide what they need to repair and restore.
    As always Lord, please protect our US Soldiers from all harm, physical and emotional,and comfort them and their families back home. Keep a watch over their finances and possessions and we will all give YOU ALL THE GLORY AND PRAISE.
    For your promises in the Bible give us great HOPE and COMFORT. We know that we can trust you always. In Jesus Name we pray, Amen

We also ask You to guide all the righteous leaders of Iraq today with Your wisdom and guidance in all decisions and actions they are involved with this day.

    Lord I ask that the plots of the enemy would be revealed in time to stop any destruction. And Lord, that the leaders would hear wisdom and know it as such, and that You would give them the grace to make the right decisions even in great opposition. Lord I ask that those who would try to bring evil influence and intimidation would be removed and that they would have no power. I ask for Your blessings to be upon Iraq today, and for Your peace and Presence to be increased.

    Dearest Father,
    We agree with all these requests, but in so doing, please allow these men and women to know it is YOU, not allah that is bringing good to them. Bring glory to Yourself. Do not allow allah to steal your glory! Bring honor to the Lord Jesus Christ for He is worthy of His inheritance. In Jesus’ Mighty Name. Amen.

    Heavenly Father, Lord of all creation, we bow before you today. We ask that you guide the leaders of the new government in Iraq. Protect them as they make decisions that may change lives all around them. They face great dangers each day even as they walk or ride down the streets. Bless and protect each soldier and policeman today. Protect each step they take from bombs and explosions. Confound and confuse the enemy and bring their own devices down upon them. In the name of Jesus, I pray.

    Cynthia, PA Says:

    Father, I come with thanksgiving in my heart for answered prayer throughout Baghdad. I ask that You continue to bring miracles to that country and that You hear my prayers for Afghanistan and for my dear America. Revival cannot happen without changed hearts toward you and not without prayer. Please, Father, let our troops be victorious in Afghanistan and in securing this entire region. Also, because of the love for You that America was founded and built on, I pray that our people return to that first love, turn from the sin and corruption so that our Country can be blessed once again in a mighty way. Recognize You as the One and Only Almighty God that you are and see that You have restored us regardless of who sits in that White House. You are our Divine Ruler and it is in You that I trust. Please let Your angels be dispatched to America to help us fight against satan in every way and bring answers to this prayer. In Jesus name I ask of You.

    We acknowledge that through your strength and power the principalities that are plaguing Iraq have been weakened and your plan for this region is coming to fulfillment. We love you Lord and exalt your name that you will bless and keep our soldiers until your appointed time to bring them home is concluded. We thank you that you work through men giving us your wisdom to defeat your enemies and bring the light of salvation to every tribe, tongue, and nation. We thank you that you strengthen our troops and that we are winning 3 wars. The physical war through military means, the political war against the media, and the most important war… the spiritual war through the prayers of your people on this watch and others.

Father, we just place the blood of Jesus over all our troops those fighting alongside them, over our leaders, and over President Bush. Father,we pray for the peace of Jerusalem and over Israel.

    Dear Father
    I pray for Godly Wisdom and protection for our military. I thank You Lord for keeping them over the months and years they have been in Baghdad.
    Lord, I don’t know, and it is not for me to know how You supernaturally work in their behalf, but Thank You Lord, just the same.
    Isaiah 54; speaks about a Covenant of Peace.
    1. “Sing, O barren,
    You who have not borne!
    Break forth into singing, and cry aloud,
    You who have not labored with child!
    For more are the children of the desolate
    Than the children of the married woman,”says the Lord.
    2.” Enlarge the place of place of Your yent, And let them stretch out the curtains of yYour dwellings;
    Do not spare.
    Lengthen Your cords, And strengthen Your stakes.
    3. For you shall expand to the right and to the left,
    And your decendants will inherit the nations,
    And make the desolate inhabited.
    4. “Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed;
    Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame;
    For you will forget the shame of your youth, And will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore.
    Lord I ask today, that You bringpeace to Iraq; to Afghanistan, and to Israel,
    in Jesus name,

    Merciful and Gracious Heavenly Father, I pray too for the safety and well-being of the leaders who are positioned to bring healing to the nation of Iraq. Please watch over them to protect them, and may they learn to turn to You daily for the counsel of Your wisdom. I pray for a day to come soon in which they will not have to be fearing for their safety but able to move freely throughout the land in order to be in touch with all the needs of the citizens and to govern well. I pray that You will uncover and expose any who seek to bring harm to the leaders or to prolong the instability of the nation. May it be Your will that is done in that land. In Jesus’ Precious Name. Amen.

    Father, soon it will be the day to celebrate our country’s independence from England. Most of the kids nowadays don’t even know why we are celebrating. They just know fireworks and parades and picnics and such. History is being rewritten in our textbooks and nobody does a thing about it. Let us stand firm in defending our heritage; it is a beautiful one. While we’re at it, let’s stand firm in supporting our fighting men and women wherever they are today. Pray for our nation and the peace of Jerusalem. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
