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,

    You are so excellent in all Your doings. You love with a love that is greater than we can imagine. You have sovereign power over all in the world. Nothing escapes Your notice. I know You know who the leaders are in Baghdad and Iraq. I pray Your hand is upon each one guiding them to do the right thing as their followers do their requests. May they lead with kindness and respect for all people. May they have awareness of details that make a difference for the good of all. And may they be finding their way to become believers in Jesus so they can be spiritual leaders as well as community and government leaders. I pray Your special blessing will be upon them this very day. Give them some reasons to smile. May they desire to sing praises to You for how You have protected them another day and saved them out of the grasp of the enemies of peace in Iraq. Thank You Abba for being a good Father to all the leaders. May they look to You for each concern that touches their hearts. I pray in the name of Jesus, Amen

    Dear Father,
    Today I come asking You for the protection of the important leaders in Iraq. Please give them wisdom as they make decisions concerning the future of their country. Please keep them free from deceit and let them be leaders of integrity. LORD, most of all, I ask for the salvation of these key officials. Islam will not fill that God-shaped void in their lives; they need You– the great Prince of Peace. Please reach down and touch each one of their lives today, and draw them to You.

    Dear Lord:
    We approach your Heavenly Bench today knowing that one day in Your Courts is worth more than all this world has to offer.
    Lord, we know that our US Soldiers are living, sacrificing, and dying more for the well being of just Americans …..
    but for the people of Iraq …or so it would seem.
    We support all that our Soldiers put their hands and wills to do.
    If they are so invested in the Iraqi’s well being then Lord, this is not too hard for you to do.
    I know that many Iraqi Christians feel support by the American presence being there.
    I pray that the Iraqi leaders become aware that false propaganda has misled them into believing that the American presence is bad.
    No, it is helping to eliminate violence and institute fair and safe institutions in otherwise archaic ones.
    Please undergird the efforts of the US Soldiers as they seek to secure peace in Iraq and keep us safe here at Home.
    Bless their sacrifice Lord and in so doing attend to the US SOldier’s every need.
    May they be so very blessed and even their families see good days and every provision.
    In Jesus Name we pray, Amen

    We ask for Your protection over the Leaders of Iraq. Those who have a fear of You, but have not yet made their decision to follow You fully. Special prayer for the Prime Minister – God we pray that Your hands will be on his life and that Your Holy Spirit will convict him of sins and the coming judgment of God. Protect each one of the citizens and help them to know that although they cannot see you as they are seeing their relatives and friends – You are so very near to them. Shine Your light around and above them. Let them see the One who is the ‘Light of the world’.
    Cause the plans of the enemy to be shattered, and come to nought. We believe that you have the power to do the impossibles. We are claiming these promises that are in Your Words for the Iranian people. Again, we ask for wisdom and guidance for the Prime Minister, and that Your Holy Spirit will work through him if he will allow Him to do so. In the Name of JESUS – AMEN

    Mighty God, You knew every person before he/she was created. You knew about every nation. You knew every person who would be in leadership. We cry out to You, our only Help! The only help opf the leaders, whether they know You or not. Turn their hearts as rivers of water where You would have them to go.

    Today, I lift up the hand of P.M. al-Maliki to You. Cause him to take hold of Your hand which is offered to him. Cause him to enter into a supernatural kingdom and to receive supernatural wisdom for his people. Be glorified in his life, Lord.

    Thank You for hearing and answering our petitions which we offer in the name of Your Son, our Savior, Jesus, name above all names, amen.

    Sharon W. Says:

    Lord, you are our mighty fortress, our bulwark never failing. Our helper amid the flood of sins and distresses. The ancient foe of all mankind is still alive and well and threatening to undo us. We won’t fear for you have willed your truth to triumph through us. We lift our prayers and fears for Iraq to you today knowing that you are in control. Some men are filled with evil and don’t know truth and they want to force everyone to believe as they do. We pray for your truth and your word to be know through out the nations. We pray for Afghanistan today and Iran, where evil men live and breathe their lies, that these countries will be liberated and the gospel can be preached. In the name of Jesus, I pray.

    Betsy P. Says:

    Father, Elohim, El Shaddai, You alone are God, and there is none else. How can leaders rule without the wisdom from heaven? Grant our leaders wisdom. How can leaders rule without strength? Grant them the strength of the Holy Spirit. How can leaders rule without protection? Grant them the safety that comes only from the Lord.

    We bind together in our prayers for all of the leaders in Baghdad, Iraq, and Afghanistan, as well as the USA. We raise our petitions on behalf of political leaders, military leaders, civilian leaders, and spiritual leaders. Thank You for hearing and answering our prayers.

    And we pray for the peace of Jerusalem, in Jesus’ name, amen.

    Father you have risen up and set in place the current leaders in Iraq, Afghanistan and our United States. We respect their authority and pray for each one. I pray Father that they would seek You each day for direction and to know Your will. They all need supernatural wisdom to lead and to do the right things.
    I pray they would do what is right and moral and not look to human praise but to Your praises. Awaken and make quick their hearts and minds to seek you Father. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

    Lord, hear my prayer,in Jesus name,
    Amen and Amen
