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!

    “Lord, You are more precious than silver! Lord, You are more costly than gold! Lord, You are more beautiful than diamonds! nothing I desire compares with You.”
    We come together as Your Body asking for protection for the leaders in Baghdad and all Iraq. May Your Spirit hover over them, and give them rest. Draw the leaders into Your Presence and hold them close to Your heart, until they know that You are God alone, and that You love them. Introduce the leaders to Your Son, Jesus, their Savior, as we pray in His name, amen.

I pray that all his cabinet receives You! Then and only then will this nation be lead in righteousness for everything apart from You is foolishness. I pray that You protect all Your believers in Iraq and that they would be filled with Your great Holy Spirit as they go about sharing the good news of Jesus our Lord to all You lead them to!

    Father, We praise You and honor You as the one true God. Bless Iraq. Bless those who know You and reveal Yourself to those who don’t. Give dreams and visions to those in positions of power from each sect Bring about Your supernatural unity. Just like You caused Cyrus to help the Israelites. Give the Iraqi leaders a desire to be a friend of Israel. In Jesus Name.

    Father, how weary the leaders of Baghdad, Shula, and all Iraq must be. It wearies me to think about all the time we have spent praying for Baghdad. But God….You know the plans that You have for them- plans for good and for a future, not plans of evil, but plans of peace. May the leaders in this nation tire of the struggle so that they will come to You. In Jesus name, I ask, amen.

Thank You, Father, for hearing my prayer. Amen.

    Mary T. Says:

    Dear Lord: Thank you for the work already done in Iraq. Our men and women of uniform have labored and died to make it a better place and I KNOW it is. I know for sure because Isaiah 19 says that one day when you come to rule this earth you will say of Assyria, which is modern day Iraq, “The work of MY HANDS”. And it was the hands of the US Soldiers that did this work and You did it through them. How marvelous is THY NAME in all the earth! Please count their death as a martyr’s death and give them a hearty welcome to heaven when their time comes to enter Your Gates of Heaven….let them hear You say, “Well done, My Good and Faithful Servant, enter into My Father’s House.” That is what we all long to hear. In Jesus Name we pray, Amen.

  12. 684
    Betsy P. Says:

    Father, we thank You for being the God who is no respecter of persons, the God who is not willing that any man should perish, the God who sends the Holy Spirit to break up the fallow ground of the hearts of the lost. May the leaders of Baghdad, Adhamiya and all Iraq come into a knowledge of the Truth of Your Son. May they each one receive Jesus as their Savior and receive forgiveness of their sins, I ask in His name, Y’shua, amen.

  13. 683
    luann beasley Says:

    Loving and merciful Father God…thank You for sending Your Son to die for our sins so that we might have life with You forever!! What great love!! Father, I pray for the leaders of Iraq that they too would hear Your great Word! Father, I praise You for You are holy and great and mighty. Father, please guide Your believers through this land of Yours and help them to spread Your Word to those that are ready to hear it. I pray that Your name be exalted in all of Iraq! Be glorified Father God, through Your loving Son, Jesus Christ! Amen!

    Donna Says:

    Father God, protect the leaders in Baghdad today. Surround them and their families with Your heavenly angels and a hedge of protection. Let them feel secure so that they are able to relax. And I ask that You bind the strongman who would harm them if he could. Thank You, LORD, for Your lovingkindness. Amen

    Mary T. Says:

    Heavenly Father: We enter your gates with thanksgiving and your courts with Praise. Thank you for another day of life to serve and glorify you and Praise you for all the beauty of creation bursting forth in blooms and color….reminding us of Redemption and life after death. Also, we are reminded during this time of Lental season, that Your Suffering the cruel men who mocked you, your best friends that deserted you, the excruciating pain of the Cross and the Father turning away from you…your thirst, your seeing your mother uncared for …all these things You went through we must remember that life isn’t about creature comforts. There are those who are suffering also in this world and Baghdad is one. They are trying to rebuild after war for many many years. Please chose their leaders for them now Lord, for only YOU know the ones that are seeking the good of all and not their own promotion. Please remind our suffering US Soldiers that you too had to undergo times of severe deprivation and loss of sleep and many desertions, even a severely broken body, before that Sunday morning Resurrection Day….and they too have the same. Jesus led the way….their sufferings have an end too. And the end is glorious also because they opened the 1040 window so the Great Commission has now been done. Come Lord Jesus. The Spirit and the Bride say, Come! In Jesus Name we pray, Amen.

I ask that You would bless the leaders with Your grace and protection. I pray that they would lead this nation in ways that please You. Help them to righteous, fair and loving towards all people. I pray that missionaries would teach them about Your Word. I pray they would ask Jesus into their hearts. May all the Iraqi’s learn Who their Lord and Savior is! There is no other. Thank You for sending Your Son to live and show us the way and then to die for our sins. I am sorry He had to die, but thankful that His blood has paid the price! Glory be to our King! Amen.

    Dottie Says:

    Dear Father I love You for who You are. Help the leaders in Iraq to make the right choices to keep the country safe. Stay the hand of the enemy who seeks to kill amd destroy innocent lives. As the Iraqi army takes the responsibility to keep the peace give them wisdom and guidance to choose the right path. Do not allow these children of yours to suffer any longer. I put my complete faith in You Father and I pray in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

    Mary T. Says:

    Dear Lord: Thank you for this prayer today and the reminder that your Word is our only offensive weapon and that it “never comes back void but accomplishes that for which it was sent.” Isa. In fact, Ps 103 says that the “Angels harken to His Commands…” and in Jeremiah it says that You Lord God, “Hasten to perform Your Word” and another place, You “Honor Your Word ABOVR your NAME” and “Your Name is above every other Name in heaven and earth”. Also, “If ye abide in my word and my word abide in you then ask what ye will and it shall be done for you.”
    When it comes to facing the violent man and the grasp of the wicked it is good to know that we can send our warring angels with your promise to keep us and the US SOldiers FROM THEM. We do so today….Dearest Lord, keep us and the US SOldiers from the violent man and the grasp of the wicked. Let it be so, in Jesus Name, AMEN! THANK YOU!

  23. 673
    Betsy P. Says:

    Father all glorious, we call upon You because there is no where else we can turn, there is no one else who can help the people of Baghdad, Adhamiya and all of Iraq. You alone chart the course of the stars and of the nations. Your Word tells us that unless You build the house they labor in vain who build it; unless You keep and guard the city, the watchman wakes but in vain. Lord, we are standing in the gap and making up the hedge for the people of Iraq, especially the leaders, today. Protect them by Your might. Draw them to Jesus. Reveal to them the Messiahship of the Lord, and establish them in Your Kingdom. I ask in the name of Jesus, the Supreme Leader of the Universe, King of kings and Lord of lords, amen.

  24. 672
    Bruce Says:

    Holy, holy, holy…all the saints adore Thee! Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee! You are worthy of all songs of praise and glory, Most High Lord! You do have command of the angels and You do summon them to protect and guide. Thank You, Heavenly Father! I pray that You would protect all the leaders that are leading Iraq to the freedom You desire them to have. I pray for their freedom to remain and that You would keep other nations away so that they do not take over Iraq. Father, I pray for Your missionaries there. Please bless them in the ways they need and renew their spirits to serve You in a nation that is unsettled. Guard and guide them safely, I pray. May they lean upon Your everlasting love and strength! Thank You, Father God, that You are our strength and shield. Thank You for sending Your Son to show us the way and to die for our sins. May we love You always and live faithful lives for Your glory alone!! In Jesus’ name and for His name. Amen.
