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!

    Heavenly Father,

    I pray this evening for Your blessings to be upon the leaders in Baghdad and Iraq. Please keep the leaders safe during their waking and sleeping hours. Do not let any plans to harm them come to pass. Please may they develop many allies in the city and outside the city so they are always made aware of any dangers that would threaten their safety. Thank You for watching carefully over the families of the leaders. May the children of the leaders be blessed with friendships with the family members of their allies. May much respect be present in the times the families spend together. Please give special safety to all the travels of the leaders. I pray no bombs will be planted along the paths of travel. Thank You Lord for the good leadership in Iraq that has seen the country through the bad times into the better times. May You be glorified for Your hand at work to bring about the stability. Through Jesus, Amen

    Jean Says:

    Merciful and Gracious Heavenly Father, I want to thank You for all who have stepped forward for leadership in Iraq today as well as for those who have devoted themselves to bringing security and peace to that nation. Surely at such an uncertain time there is little to entice the wicked to put themselves in harm’s was for the sake of personal glory or power. I pray You will have mercy on Iraq by giving great wisdom to the leaders and protecting them from anything the violent might desire to bring about them. Then, ultimately, Dear Lord, I pray that the present difficulties and challenges of leadership will cause these leaders to turn to You and put their trust in You, Whom to know is life eternal. I pray that through Godly leadership and the efforts of all who are laying down their lives for that nation there will be a tremendous healing and restoration of that nation, militarily, physically, socially and especially spiritually. Help Your people who are in that land to give whatever support they are able to give to those leaders, both in practical ways and by means of powerful prayers that reach up to the very throne of Heaven. May this be in Jesus’ Precious and Lovely Name. Amen.
