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!

    Father, You are our Protector, You’re the glory and the Lifter of our heads. Thank You for all of the protection that you have given the leaders of Iraq heretofore. It is amazing that they have had such mercy and been given such longevity.
    As night falls in Baghdad, Adhamiya, and all over Iraq, may You visit people in dreams and visions and songs in the night. Reveal Your Son to them. Reveal Your love to them. Enfold them in Your embrace. Please do this for soldiers and civilians, leaders and followers.
    And, Lord, help them to forgive one another as You have forgiven us for Christ’s sake. I ask this in the Name of the One Who said, “Father, forgive them; they know not what they do.” Amen.

    Dear Father we have heard of terrible happenings in Iraq today. Christians have been murdered and their church is in shambles. Father hear our prayers and bind these awful killers who destroy with hate in their hearts.
    Father I know the prayer for today is for the leaders and we do pray for You to protect them and give them wisdom. But Father when we hear these things happening our hearts go out to the christians in Iraq. Protect them too and do not allow the enemy to get the upper hand. Comfort those who have lost loved ones and heal their broken hearts. I pray in Jesus name. Amen

    Blessed Lord of Heaven and of earth, thank You that all things are in Your hands! Your Word instructs us to pray for leaders everywhere so that we might live peaceable lives. I agree in prayer for the leadership of Iraq to know Your protection from those who would like to bring harm. But I am also very concerned about whether these leaders are practicing righteousness in their positions of power. I pray that each one will know that You are a holy God Who sees all they are doing, and Who shows no favor to those who practice unrighteousness. May these leaders fear You, Dear Lord, that they might set their hearts on doing righteousness in every situation. May they be diligent to practice both justice and mercy, and to forsake any desires for revenge. Dear Father, I pray this urgently so that the people of Iraq might experience peace and a freedom from the oppression that has troubled them for such a long time. In Jesus’ Holy and Exalted Name. Amen.

Help them to share Your good news with all the people of Iraq. For Thy glory. Amen.

    Father God Almighty, Your Word says that safety is of the Lord. I want to stop and thank You right now for all of the protection You have given the leaders of Baghdad, Haifa, and all Iraq in the years that we have been praying on this prayer site.
    It is amazing to me that there have not been more deaths among the leaders, and we can give You all the credit for that. Our troops receive credit, too, for their faithfulness to the task of helping to bring peace to a fractured nation. Blessings upon the ones who are attempting to move this nation forward into a stable place to live, work, worship, and raise fa family. We bless You Lord God for blessing us and them, in Jesus name, amen.

    Father of all Mercies, comfort those who lost loved ones in the church massacre today. May this be a wake-up call to the leaders that the Christians need protection and that the government be aware of the huge numbers who have left Iraq in fear for their lives. May your angels be around all those who are left with great supernatural presence. May many be drawn to Christ by the witness of these who show courage and faith.

    We pray a hedge of protection around these leaders, your mighty shield Jesus that the enemy can not break through to harm them.

    We do speak breakthrough of the enemies ground and by Jesus authority we take back what the enemy has stolen from these people.

    In you Jesus, their is liberty and we pray advancement of the army of Jesus Christ in this land. We place the banner of Jesus Christ over this land.

    M Tebault Says:

    I agree, Lord. Guide the leaders. Move upon their hearts to seek peace – to search for truth – to find life through your Son Jesus. As evening turns to night, fill their minds with dreams and visions pointing them to the right people to fully explain Your plan of salvation to them. Protect them from spiritual attacks that rob them of their right mind. Enable them to see clearly the truth of Your plan and stand firm so that Iraq fulfills the destiny You planned.

Place those in authority who can and will lead this nation forward and work toward peace and unity..not division and power. To You, Jesus, I appeal. Amen
