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!

    from the song “God of this City” BLUETREE
    You’re the God of this city
    Your’e the God of these people
    You’re the God of this nation
    You are

    You’re the light in the darkness
    You’re the Hope to the hopeless
    You’re the Peace to the restless
    You are

    For there is no one like our god
    There is no one like our God

    Chorus 1

    For Greater things are yet to come
    And greater things have yet to be done in this city

    Father, we want to thank our young men and women who are far from home today defending our country against violence. They are the wall of protection for those of us who are vulnerable and cannot fight for ourselves. Father, we ask that You be their wall of protection as they are ours. Strengthen them and protect them head to toe. Give them alert minds and bodies. Let the angels camp round about them. We ask it in Jesus’ Name, Amen

    Yes Father You are our strength, hope and joy. It is because of Your unfailing love that we can have hope, continue to live and be. Please Father please cover Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and those who love peace in the region. Surround them with Your presence and Your mighty league of angels to protect these people from the hate mounted by lies. Please allow these ones to be visited by Jesus so they may know Your truth and will know what to do. Keep these leaders of hope lifted and strengthened. I pray for Your Holy Spirit to move them in the direction of Your will. I know it is the desire of Your heart that we ALL know and love You. Please afford this opportunity to these nations. Please forgive our shortcomings in opportunities afforded to us. I pray for revival in hearts and minds of all of us. Give us a renewed spirit of true repentance and change. Help those swept away in modern culture feel the hunger for that which they lack which is YOU. Change our foundation so we may be strong enough to hold up other nations. Please don’t let us crumble, I Pray for Your earthly kingdom to be strengthened and Jesus to take command. Protect our friends in this region and continue to bring them Your word and into Your kingdom. Protect our brave military and bring them home safely. I pray this in Jesus mighty name in faith, Amen.

    O Lord our Shepherd, I ask You today to move upon the hearts and minds of the leaders in Baghdad and all Iraq. May they be turned to You, their true source of life and wisdom. Lead them as a Shepherd leads His sheep. Cause them to walk in paths of righteousness for Your names sake. Comfort them with Your rod and staff. Anoint their heads with oil. Walk with them through the valley of the shadow of death. Help them to fear no evil, for You are with them. Prepare a table before them in the presence of their enemies. Reveal Yourself to them so that goodness and mercy will follow them all the days of their life and they will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. In Jesus’ name, I ask, amen.

    Lord Jesus,

    You alone, know the hearts and agendas of those who desire to disrupt the voting process in Iraq.

    You alone, know this puts our warriors in greater, unpredictable danger.

    You alone, are the answer.

    You alone, can stop evil.

    You alone, can bring safety and peace.

    Have Mercy on and protect our warriors; the people brave enough to go to vote; for the leaders that they be just and look to You for their wisdom and choices to lead Iraq.
