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!

    Beloved Father, You love all of Your creation so much. I see everyday evidences of Your tender care for even the little insects that fly or hop. You have given them beautiful bodies, a purpose for being, the food and water and protection that they need. Surely, if You have given such attention to a finite bug that has a very short life span and seemingly not much impact on the world, You will so much more establish the leaders in Baghdad, Adhamiya and all of Iraq. “But God demonstrates His love for us that when we were yet sinners Christ died for us!” Awesome, Awesome God! We give the leaders in Iraq into Your care, into Your mercy, into Your justice, in Jesus name; for He prayed, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” May all of our troops who remain in Iraq experience the freedom of knowing Lord Jesus as SAvior, amen.

    Father I praise Your Holy Name. I call on You today to be with the leaders of all Iraq and especially Baghdad.

    Father, We meet here together and we know you are with us. We are asking for the leaders in Baghdad be given protection from all evil as they go about trying to rebuild their nation. We ask that you give them guidance as they seek you. Father, we long to see people set free to live and be a blessing; we pray for an end to the violence and distruction.

    Father, we believe You have placed this man in the postion of PM in Iraq and that You placed him there with a purpose and a plan. We pray that he will follow through with the vision You’ve place in him and he will lead his people with integrity. As Nehemiah was placed in the time of restoring Israel rebuilding his people from despair and ruin, I pray that same conviction will overtake Prime Minister Ayed Allawi, and he’ll take his rightful place as the leader who brings forth a condition of peace, security, restored order, and usefulness to his nation. As You make a way where there seemed to be no way Abba, let it be evident today that Your hand of favor leads and guides this nation into the future!In Jesus Name amen

    Dear Father send your angels to guard and keep safe from harm the leaders in Iraq. Bind the ones who come to kill and to steal the peace that is being worked on so hard. Protect our soldiers and the police who are trying to keep the peace. May there be a great revival to reveal how much You love Your people and want what is best for them. May it sweep over Iraq and cause the people to receive wisdom from above. I pray in Jesus name. Amen

    Betsy P. Says:

    Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I worship You, for You alone are worthy of all praise. honor, glory, power, and adoration. There is none like You! There is no god above You and no god besides You. Hallelujah, Ancient of Days!
    We ask for Your hovering angels to protect the leaders of Iraq whom You have ordained and placed in positions of authority. We know that You can work Your will in even the heathen. Turn the hearts of the leaders in Baghdad, Dawrah, and all over Iraq to You – draw them, Father, by the wooing of Your Holy Spirit to Your Son our Savior, Jesus.
    May Your plans and purposes ONLY come forth from the leaders in Iraq, whether civic, religious or military or family. We exalt in Your goodness and thank You for all the protection that You have given to the leaders thus far. In Jesus name, we pray, amen.

    Heavenly and gracious Father, YOU are the only one that reigns and knows all the leaders in Iraq. You know each one by name, and given them the position they are in by Your great authority. I give You praise for all the tings You have done for the sake of Your Kingdom. YOU reign LORD God ofHosts.

    I come and stand humblly in the gap for the leaders of Baghdad, and other cities in Iraq. LORD, give PM Ayed Allawi Your vision of the new Iraq. Give him the strenght, encoragement, wisdom and knowledge that come from heaven above to help the people and nation to move forward to peace and freedom. Pour down Your blessing upon our soldiers and their leaders. Watch over all the soldiers there and have the angels protect them at all times. In the Holy name of Jesus I pray. Amen

    Pia Harrison Says:

    This fragile nation needs a leader. You place them in power, so please establish a functining government. Grant Prime Minister Allawi wisdom and insight that only comes from You. Place people around him that have the best interest of the Iragi people in mind instead of their politcal gain.

    Let Prime Minister Allawi put away from him perverse talk; keep corrupt talk for political gain from his lips. Let Prime Minister Allawi’s eyes look srtaight ahead, fix his gaze directly on You. Make level paths for his feet and have him do only what is best for the Iraqi’s. Help him not to compromise for ploitical gain. Keep him from swerving from one extreme to another and keep him and the people from evil.
    (Prov 4:24-27 paraphrased)

    Father, I do pray Your protection over these leaders. I pray for a super natural level of unity among the leaders of the different factions. I pray for a vision of a workable coalition in Iraq. Let Your kingdom come and Your will be done in this war weary place OH Father. Bless Your children in this place. May Your glory spread throughout this land. In the precious and powerful name of Jesus Christ.

    Dottie Says:

    Dear Father You allow presidents,prime ministers and kings to be put into office by Your power. We are instructed to pray for our leaders. I do pray for all leaders that they would be guide by You. Instill in them the wisdom to lead and to do what is best for their people and their countries. Do bind up any who are seeking to disrupt what the leaders are trying to do on behalf of their people. You still rule and reign and all power is in Your hands. What a comfort to know that You are in control of the universe and we can put ALL of our trust in You. Now I pray for all leaders in Jesus precious name. Amen

    Jean Says:

    Dear Father in Heaven, thank You for this reminder to pray for the leaders of Iraq. I pray earnestly for a right government in that nation and for the establishment of stability and of peace and safety for all its citizens. Please give great wisdom to those in leadership concerning how to proceed to achieve these goals. Please encourage the police and the troops who have enlisted for the good of their nation, many of them even while under threat. May they do righteously toward all of Iraq’s citizens, and may they be especially careful to protect the innocent among the population, and those who love peace. Please make a good testimony to Yourself in Iraq in redeeming a nation from the troubles of its past and bringing about an whole new era for Iraq. Thank You Lord! In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    M Tebault Says:

    Thank you Lord for your love and grace and mercy freely given to all who believe. I lift up the leaders in Iraq today and pray that you would protect them from the enemy. You know their hearts, Lord. Reveal yourself to them in a way they can understand. May they see Jesus, high and lifted up, the only Son of the Father, robed in splendor, seated at the Father’s right hand, and reigning in heaven. May they be astounded and awed, bowing down and confessing their sinfulness in the light of your presence. Grant them the mercy of a softened heart that can believe and receive and be totally changed. You are awesome, Lord, and nothing is too difficult for you!! Be glorified today.

    Betsy P. Says:

    Dear Lord Father God, we bow before Your Sovereignty today for You alone are God. You know the end from the beginning and You hold all life in Your hands. The psalmist, David, wrote, “Lord, make me to know my end and [to appreciate] the measure of my days – what it is; let me know and realize how frail I am [how transient is my stay here]. Behold, You have made my days as [short as] handbreadths, and my lifetime is as nothing in Your sight. Truly every man at his best is merely a breath! Selah! Surely every man walks to and fro – like a shadow in a pantomime; surely for futility and emptiness he is in turmoil; each one heaps up riches, not knowing who will gather them. …Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear to my cry; hold not Your peace at my tears! For I am Your passing guest, a temporary resident, as all my fathers were.” Psalm 39:4-7 and 12.
    Father, this is true of the leaders in Baghdad, Karrada, and all over Iraq – the leaders both civil and military. This is true for the troublemakers in Iraq. Cause them all to know the brevity of their lives. Reveal Yourself to them so that they can know that LIFE is in Your Son, Jesus, in Whose name we pray amen.

    18I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see. 19Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent. 20Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me. 21To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the

    We pray for Prime Minister Allawi and all that are in authority in Iraq; that the people of Iraq might lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godlyness and honesty. (I Timothy 2:2)

    You raise leaders up and you remove them and at the moment there is confusion as to who is the leader of Iraq. We pray for the government of Your will to be established in Iraq. We pray for the church in Iraq, as small as it is, to be established and rooted and grounded in the love of Christ. We pray that our brothers and sisters in Christ would have boldness to live Your Word out in their daily lives and in the process transform their country.

    Thank You Father, You are sovereign and in control.

    In Jesus name and for His glory Amen

    Dear Lord, Bring an end to the conflict in the middle east. How sad that so many young men and women have given their lives in this conflict. Only you can put an end to this conflict.
