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 in Heaven, ultimately it is my hope, Dear Lord, for a good result from all the trouble and loss of the recent war in Iraq. May the lives of the leaders of that nation be counted as precious in Your sight, especially inasmuch as they are willing to serve the people with dilligence and integrity. May stability soon return to that nation and an end to threats and hostilities. May there be great wisdom for the rebuilding of Iraq on principles of righteousness, good government and peace. May the citizens of Iraq soon be able to look up, and to understand that God has been good to them and has heard the prayers of the righteous. Thank You, Lord, for all Your mercies. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Dear Father protect the leaders in Iraq. Give them wisdom as they strive to keep the peace. Stay the hand of the enemy who continually does acts of violence to the innocent. Help the people to get along with each other and live together in harmony. May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. I pray in Jesus name. Amen

    Virginia Says:

    May your Peace come to the leaders who love Iraq for the sake of its people. Peace that comes from resting in the Presence of the Lord. You are able to select and gain the attention of those who labor in vain. You are able to reveal yourself in amazing ways. There is no peace but Your Peace, King Jesus.

    Sharon Says:

    Abba/Daddy, I thank you that we can come into your presence through the sacrificial blood of the lamb, our precious Savior Jesus. Thank you for hearing our prayers and answering according to your will, which is love and mercy itself. I ask today that you grant great favor to your children in Iraq, the Christians. I ask that they may be afforded greater participation in the government in Baghdad. This so that they can carry your influence and presence into the laws and practices of the ruling authorities, and the peace of God reign in Baghdad and throughout Iraq. For the sake of Your Name and the Blood of Jesus. Amen

    M Tebault Says:

    Yes, Lord. Protect and encourage the Iraqi leaders today. Speak to them in visions and dreams as they sleep. Turn Sauls into Pauls. Give wisdom to the peacemakers and through the enemy’s camp into confusion. Disrupt all attacks planned today. Reveal the enemy’s hideouts. Discredit the troublemaker in the eyes of his own people. May a great hunger for righteousness and peace spring up and take over, combating all hatred, retaliation & revenge. Be glorified today, Lord.

    Betsy P. Says:

    For the leaders in Iraq, political, military, family, and schools, I pray the prayer of Moses, the man of God: “Lord, through all the generations You have been our home. Before the mountains were created, before the earth was formed, You are God without beginning or end.
    “You speak and man turns back to dust. A thousand years are but as yesterday to You! They are like a single hour! We glide along the tides of time as swiftly as a racing river, and vanish as quickly as a dream. We are like grass that is green in the morning but mowed down and withered before the evening shadows fall.
    “Teach us to number our days and recognize how few they are; help us to spend them as we should.
    “O Jehovah, come and bless us! How long will You delay? Turn away Your anger from us.Satisfy us in the earliest youth with Your lovingkindness, giving us constant joy to the end of our lives. Give us gladness in proportion to our former misery! Replace the evil years with good. Let us see Your miracles again; let our children see glorious things, the kind You used to do, and let the Lord our God favor us and give us success.” In Jesus’ name, the Wonder Worker of God, amen.

Lord, speak to the hearts and minds of the people working with the leaders and help them to be righteous and supportive too. May Your truth reach their hearts and minds and may they be lead by You. I thank You for hearing and answering our prayers, faithful, loving Lord of all. Amen.

    Dear Mighty and Gracious Father, I agree in prayer with my siblings in Christ. Guard and guide the leaders in Baghdad, and all Iraq. Hold the peace for them, Jehovah Sabaoth. Do a powerful work in Baghdad today that no one can gainsay or resist.

    Be magnified, glorified, thanked, and honored for all of the answers to prayer that You have so graciously given, Jehovah Jireh.
    We are totally helpless without You, Abba Father. And we pray in the name of Your Son Who taught us to call You, Abba. Amen.

    M. Thompson Says:

    Dear Lord: Thank you for hearing our Prayers today. We know that no good thing do you withhold from them that walk uprightly and we ask you to please keep our feet from stumbling and our gaze ever forward towards the work at hand. We ask for forgiveness for looking backward for then we carve a crooked farrow in the ground for the precious seed to be sewn. Lord, we see Your signs everywhere! The Midnight Cry is faint but heavy in the air, we must go out into the Highways and the Byways and compel all to come in for You want Your Wedding Feast for the Bridegroom to be Full! Save our US Soldiers Lord. They deserve rest from their labors and abundant love poured out on them for all the missles and bullets sent to them to destroy them. If they belong to You Jesus, no weapon fashioned against them will prevail……..and if their time on earth is up and You are calling them Home, the bullets still didn’t prevail because Your Mansion on High awaits them. Pour out Your Love today on our Soldiers LOrd. Hold them tightly! In Jesus Name we pray, amen.

    Tress Cole Says:

    Dear Lord we ask that You Protect the Leaders of this nation. Lead them to learn Your ways in righteoussness we pray. Let them carry themselves in a way the people will notice is very different from most!
    Let them be led by Your Holy Spirit. Teach them to look to You, for all the answers they will need to lead the people through this time to testing and trails.
    Give them the courage to praise Your Holy Name and give Honor where Honor is due! For they are lead by the supernatural, which isn’t seen by sight, but seen by the spirit of the man led of God!
    Help them to lead the people, to a time of peace and harmony. They have been held capitive by satan for too long now. Now is the time to proclaim they are set free! For the freedom they seek, is in the written: WORD OF GOD, The Holy Bible!
    We all ask that this thing be Done, in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ we pray! Amen
