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 Father I come asking you to protect the leaders in Iraq. They have a monumental task to do. Direct their thoughts to pure and honest work. May they be guided by your invisible hand. May they be fair and open as they make new paths for Iraq.
    Protect our troops as they are alone now and all other troops have withdrawn from Iraq. Keep them alert and pure in thought and deed as well.
    Be with the troops in Afganistan,surround them with your hedge of protection. This is such a hard land to try to bring about peace there. They are under much strife and hardship. Bless them and please bind the enemy who seeks to do harm to the innocent. I pray in Jesus name. Amen

    Dear Lord:
    Thank you for this opportunity to meet with You and other saints to make our petitions. Please bless Wayne and his family for their urgent ministry to the Military.

    Today we ask you Lord for protection for our US Troops. We pray that they be held back from the grasp of the wicked and violent man or men.

    We ask for Your Holy Angels to surround our men and women in uniform still in Iraq, and ALL those in Afghanistan too.
    May they learn to turn to You Lord, more and more for all their needs and for your comfort.
    May You be a habitation to them that they will continually resort.
    We also lift up to Heaven’s Throne the leaders in Iraq.
    May they seek to do right in Your Holy Sight Lord Jesus, otherwise, please overturn and overturn until YOUR MAN is in control of Iraq.
    It might be Jesus because He is coming so soon.
    Thank You Lord for hearing and answering our prayers today and always.
    In Jesus Name we pray, Amen.

    Thank You Father for hearing our prayers. Your son is our prince of peace. Peace has always been the goal, ambition, aim, the result desired in all the efforts made by our soldiers and the people of Iraq and Afghanistan. Hopes of peace in this region and the world. If there is peace in this region, there is peace in the world. Jesus You told us to liberate the world and free the captives. When children and innocent oppressed people are being forced to strap themselves with bombs in efforts by corrupt and hateful leaderships to destroy lives individually and whole nations, there is a great need for Your sweet peace. Please Father as these efforts are made to help liberate innocent people from cruel bondage and hate, please bring peace and Jesus to these people so they may be free. I pray this for the region. I pray for the strong unbreakable determination of the people to stand up. I pray for Your Holy Spirit to help guide their every step. please give them power in numbers and wisdom. Please protect them and protect our brave troops. Let Your goodness prevail, we need You Father. In Jesus name I pray in faith, Amen.

    Father, I am in awe of how many dangers, toils, and snares have been averted by Your power and might through your people and through supernatural means. I am in awe of how many lives have been spared. I am in awe of Your faithfulness to hear and answer our prayers.

    On April 24, 2004, I wrote “war in Iraq” next to these verses in my Bible: “The wicked lie in wait for the [uncompromisingly] righteous and seek to put them to death.
    The Lord will not leave them in their hands, or [suffer them to]comdemn them when they are judged.
    Wait for and expect the Lord and keep and heed His way, and He will exalt you to inherit the land; [in the end] when the wicked are cut off, you will see it.
    I have seen a wicked man in great power and spreading himself like a green tree in its native soil.
    Yet he passed away, and behold, he was not; yes, I sought and inquired for him, but he could not be found.
    Mark the blameless man and behold the upright, for there is a happy end for the man of peace.
    As for the transgressors, they shall be destroyed together; in the end the wicked shall be cut off.
    But the salvation of the [consistently] righteous is of the Lord; He is their Refuge and secure Stronghold in the time of trouble.
    And the Lord helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they trust and take refuge in Him.”

    Mary M. Shelton Says:

    Lord, please raise up great support for Prime Minister al-Maliki and his administration. Lord, please let the desire to get on with life and to have peace override any factional strivings. Lord, let the good effects of peace be seen clearly, and let no deception take hold of the people of Iraq. Let the enemy not be able to hide, but please expose the whereabouts of his hiding and his workings, and may Your solutions be put into action concerning the enemy and his plans. Lord, let every scheme of the enemy to control the major cities of Iraq, and, indeed, all of Iraq, fail, in Jesus’ name! Protect the innocent and needy, Lord! Praise You, Lord, for what You are doing in Iraq!!! You, Lord God, are sovereign over all the nations!! May Your glory cover Iraq and all the nations, Lord!

    Joan Gintella Says:

    Father, even as the transition is taking place in Iraq and the Iraqi police and military are trying to take over, the terrorists are still going about killing, stealing and destroying. They don’t want peace and they are doing everything they can to stop it and discourage the Iraqi people. Lord, give the Iraqi people who want peace and who want their country to be free, give them courage, wisdom and we pray that they not have a spirit of fear and discouragement. Protect them and our soldiers during this time of transition. Give the Iraqi leaders confidence to do the job that has to be done. In Jesus name we pray, Amen and Amen

    I declare That no harm shall come near Prime minister Al-Maliki or the leaders of Baghdad and no disaster shall come near their tent, for they will only see with their eyes the destruction of the wicked…they shall tread upon the lion and the cobra and they shall trample the great lion and the serpent… I come into agreement with the prayer today, and declare that the leaders who seek to do right before the LORD will have every need supplied: 2Ch 7:14 “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
