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!

    Abba Father, Your word says, “he giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.” Is. 40:29
    Father, help those leaders to walk in the courage of faith and know that the creator of all things is the God of strength and courage. Be with the leaders of Baghdad and give them good discernment to the point that all of Iraq would take note and trust in their good decisions. In Jesus name I pray peace and good will toward all men.

    Father, thank You so much for the relatively peaceful elections that have just taken place in Iraq. Protect & bless the new leadership. Reveal to them Your Son Jesus & Your plan for this land. Guide them into all Righteousness & Truth — again, into Your Son Jesus. Be glorified, Lord.

    Lynn Says:

    Father, a new day will be dawning in Iraq as elections are taking place there. Use those who will be in power to work for good. May the people see how peaceful the change in leadership in the United States went and know and understand that they can have peace and the democratic way there as well. May our troops, each of them, be safe as they stay there to back up the Iraqi forces. Keep them alert to danger and not to become complacent through longer periods of peace that occur. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

    Lord God, Thank you for this prayer wall so that we sons and daughters of Christ can come before you in unity to pray for Baghdad and Iraq. Lord, we do ask for you to protect and guide all the righteous leaders of this area so that this land can become a renewed light amongst the darkness there. I pray Lord that all that is done, by your devine direction and consultation for those leaders, will ultimately show complete glory to your name and only your name. Thank you for giving the power of prayer to those who believe in the life, death, and resurrection of your Son, Jesus Christ! Amen.

    Dear Father I agree completely with this prayer. I pray for the safety of al-Maliki and all the leaders who are working to build a free and peaceful Iraq. Give wisdom from on high to these leaders. May they have a vision for all the people to live together in a free Iraq. Work your miracles on them I pray in Jesus name. Amen
    Father protect the men and women who are sacrificing their lives for our freedom. Watch over each and every one of them. In Jesus name. Amen

    Revival, Father pour out of your latter rain upon Iraq, send the fires of revival in the body of Christ there, destroy all limitations and anything that blocks or hinders this revival from being manifested. We cast down the prince and power of the air and we declare it to be destroyed as we declare and cause your son Jesus’ name to be made known in Christ Jesus name Amen.

    Blessed Lord of Heaven and earth, may Your will be done in Baghdad and all of Iraq today, and may the day come soon that the strain and stress of war and terror are only a memory in that land. Please do give safety, help and wisdom to the leaders whose intention it is to lead this nation into peace and stability. May evil find no place to hide in that nation and may godly people be willing to unite to bring in stability, peace and safety for one another. Please especially bless and encourage today each one who is working toward this goal. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Betsy P. McAllister Says:

    Father of all power and authority, You have given us keys, including the keys of binding and loosing. As we bind the one who comes to kill, steal and destroy in Baghdad and Karrada, we also loose LIFE, eternal life, and life more abundant into all of Iraq. We loose LIFE into the leaders and the places where they lead. We Loose knowledge of the Son of God and of His sacrifice to every leader in Iraq. And we trust You, Father, to bring it to pass.

    In Jesus’ naem we pray, amen.

    Dear Lord
    Thank You for another New Year! I ask that You send a league of Angels to protect the Iraqi leaders; This year, even more than the previous years,
    In Jesus name,

    Becky Says:


    Thank You Lord that Your Birth was celebrated openly in Baghdad this year. Praise be only to You and You alone.

    Let Your Presence continue in the thoughts and decisions of the Iraq leaders. Illuminate the dark ,evil shadow of thoughts with Your Word, bringing into focus Your Salvation to all who chose to believe.

    We know that “…all things work together for good to those who love God…” Romans 8:28. Help our warriors chose to see what is happening around them through the eyes of faith (not needing to know why) instead of through mankind’s reasoning. Give them peace of mind and thought as they begin this new year.

    To God and God alone be the Honor and Praise.

    Terese L. Cole Says:

    Lord I pray for the Leader’s in Iraq/ Baghdad tody. I pray that they will come to Know You as their Lord and Savior. (Job 11:18,19) says:
    And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shall take rest in safety.
    Also thou shall lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; yea, many shall suit unto thee.
    (Psalm 121: 7,8) says:
    The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
    The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for ever more.

    If they will look to you Lord, they can help to preserve this Land and it’s people. Being without you Lord is Death! How can they expect the Dead to Lead the Dead? The Dead neither Hear nor See! If they give their selfs to you Lord, and thy Die, Yet shall they live!!! Life begins and Stops with thee!

    Help them this day Heavenly Father to turn for their wicked aways and look to thy Face, for such all help can be found.

    Lord hear the prayers of my Brother’s and Sister’s and I, around the world. Lord help there be Peace In That Land! In the Name Of Jesus We Pray!! AMEN

    Heavenly Father, Thank you for this New Year, a new
    year of Beginnings. Bless each day that we are lead
    to do your will and be your witness to show others
    that peace and democracy are the true way to live
    safe, secure lives. Thank you for being with us as
    our Military continue to work in the rebuilding of
    Karrada. We ask you to be with each of our Men and
    Women, protect them from all evil, that no weapon formed against them would prosper. Send your Holy
    Spirit to dwell within them guiding them with wisdom, discernment and calm resolve. Help them to
    feel your presence, give their hearts joy in knowing they are lights of hope for the people of
    Karrada. Bind any and all evil people and plots to
    do harm in the name of Jesus. Expose all evil doers in Karrada, that they would be given up to the Military and Iraqi Police by the people of Karrada. Give the people of Karrada strength and
    courage to turn over all evil doers, that they
    know the only way to secure peace and safety for
    their city is to eliminate these hate mongers.
    We pray you would wipe evil from Iraq and Afghanistan, bind all evil from the hearts of men
    who use it to promote their false religion. Confound their minds, restore love and peace to them that they would be driven to return to their families and reject hateful acts.

    Be with all of our Military throughout the world,
    give them peace, courage and strength to live each
    day, knowing you are with them. Be with those who are homesick, lonely or sad, give them joy and pride, knowing they are your precious children and
    your Angels are there watching over them. With You
    ALL things are possible, You can do what man can’t. God Bless each of our Men and Women. We pray all these things in the Name of Jesus. Amen

    Mary Says:

    Father, we also ask that You would grant these leaders a love for the people and nation they lead and Your strategies and wisdom to lead. We pray that You would open their eyes to truth, all who are to lead in Baghdad and Iraq and give them hearts to know You. May they come to know the Son of Glory, the Soon-Coming King, in Jesus’ name! And may they be righteous governors!
    Please bring about all Your purposes for Iraq and for our troops, as they are there in the country(those in Afghanistan, too). May You give the rulers in Iraq and our troops, too, escapes from death, and also encounters with You, in Jesus’ name! Thank-You, Lord!

    Loretta Worthy Says:

    Father, We lift up the rulers and speak supernatural protection over them all. Let their lives be a testament to Your protection and covering. Let those who would do harm to them be foiled and captured. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    I come to You because You are the One True God. You are the Father of all Creation. You put order into the world. Part of Your order is to make leaders out of some of the population of people. I thank You for all those in Baghdad who have stepped up to the responsibilites of leadership in Baghdad in order to help the citizens. Please protect them as they go about their business. If any plans are made against the leadership I pray You would put an end to those plans. Strengthen the leaders and may they band together to be like a strong cord not easily broken. Please let them find that Jesus is a great example and let them be humble and follow Him. Show them the Way. I pray through Jesus, Amen

  23. 348
    Becky Says:

    ” O sing unto the Lord a new song; sing unto the Lord, all the earth.” Psalm 96:1

    Cleanse Iraq of all the evil hatred and fear that has kept captive it’s citizens thoughts.

    Clear their minds so they can see You, Your Glory, Your Truth and Your Love for them.

    May our warriors and the innocents in Iraq sing together, a song of Your Peace, Your Protection and Your Presence.

    M. Thompson Says:

    Dear Lord:
    Please deliver us all from the Hand of the Wicked. We look to you Jesus for deliverance from these wicked men. Thank you and Praise you for being strong and mighty enough to accomplish this! In Jesus Name we pray. Amen

  25. 346
    Jean Says:

    Merciful Father in Heaven, how wise You are, and how wonderful in all Your ways! I praise You for sending Jesus, the Prince of Peace into our world. Yet in the past week, Dear Father, we have been reminded again of how far this poor world is from peace in any tangible form. May Your will be done on earth today, as in Heaven! I thank You for many answered prayers on behalf of the nation of Iraq and continue to pray for the day that stability would be established there, to the extent that the leaders’ lives would be kept safe from threats and violence along with the lives of the citizens. Heavenly Father, in Iraq, or wherever conflict and war are an imminent risk, may the leaders who are willing to put the well-being of their nation and its people first before any personal grasp for power be kept safe in Your mighty hands. May their efforts to do what is right be pleasing in Your eyes, and may their efforts to know and do what is right eventually help them to reach out and find You, Whom to know is life eternal. I thank You again so much for Your mercy and your ever present help in time of need. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.
