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!

    Blessed be Your name Father. Forgive our weaknesses. Please give us strength. I pray for the protection and strength for these brave leaders in Iraq. Let them be rewarded for their efforts, supported and loved by their people. Let them soon see what they have been working so hard to achieve and dying for. Father let them have peace. Ward off the evil. Only evil can put a gun in a child’s hand, only evil would strap a bomb on a man or woman and threaten to kill their family if they do what they’re told, only evil would laugh at the death and suffering of innocent people. This enemy is very dark, and we need you Jesus for our leader, protector, our hope and to help these brave strong people of Iraq. In your mighty name Jesus, Amen.

    You are the LORD, ruler of all, the God of creation and we praise You. We praise you for the watch You have over Baghdad and all of Iraq and Afghanistan and the whole world. We now trust You for the watch You have put over the leaders of Iraq. We trust You for their physical safety and their emotional and mental safety. Raise up within them a spirit of wisdom, power and revelation to carry out the tasks of government. We trust You that very soon there will arise a spirit of cooperation amongst the various factions which will amaze even the most critical observer. SO amazing that it will be evident that You, O Lord, are the ruler of the affairs of nations and all the people therein. You are the LORD. There is no other LORD. You alone raise up and set down rulers and nations. We trust You to raise up to full statue the nation of Iraq and all those in leadership positions at every level of civilian government and the military. You are the mighty Sovereign. We rejoice in Your Name. Amen.

    Dear Father in Heaven, I come to You today to intercede for the safety and well-being of Your own people who are in Iraq. Please give them a wall of protection from their enemies and be to them the strong tower to which they can continually come for safety and help. Please let Your will alone be done in Baghdad today. May those who oppose peace be found out and known so that they might not work their acts of destruction in secret. Let any who work for peace be strengthened and encouraged and may the resolution to this conflict and turmoil be found. Father, I pray that there will be good communication and understanding among those who seek to do what is right that they might be able support and help one another. May You be honored and praised because of Your purposes being fulfilled in Baghdad today. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    Cynthia Rydelnik Says:

    Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for hearing and answering our prayers. First of all, I pray that Your Holy Spirit will convict the leadership of Iraq that they need to repent of their sins and put their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. And secondly, O Lord, we do pray for wisdom and protection for Iraq’s leadership. Father, keep them from making deals with Iran and Syria for protection or help. They have done so already – Thou knowest that, O Lord. It will be no good for them and the Iraqi people if they align themselves with those who promote terrorism.
    Thank you, O Lord, that You have called out from Iraq Your Church, the Body of Christ, and are continuing to do so. Help the Iraqi Christians to stay strong in their faith, and help them in their everyday living, as many are struggling with the necessities of life.
    Take care of our troops, Lord – lead them to a saving faith in the Lord Jesus, and give them courage and conviction in the mission they are performing. Help them to have compassion on the Iraqi people to aid and comfort wherever and whenever they see a need. Go before them with troops of angels, and be their Rear Guard.
    I pray all this in Jesus’ Wonderful Name, with thanksgiving – Amen.

We lift the Prime Minister and ALL the cabinet members of the Iraqi government up to You. We pray for their safety, we pray for a softenening of their hearts and a change from the old Bible principles an eye for an eye mentality so that they can resolve Real Issues and Real problems because Lord without this freedom will never come about in Iraq. more importantly Lord we pray for Spiritual Freedom, freedom from the bonds of sins for these people, and grace and peace that comes from having Jesus Christ as their personal Savior – Father thank You for this gift You have given to us, Let us not grow weary in our duties to support our troops and fighting the good fight – let us perservere and run the race that You have laid out for us and Victory will be Yours Father

    Dear Soldiers,
    I thank you for everything you are doing to protect our country and my family. When I feel hot or tired I remember that you are even hotter and more tired.
