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, may the well-being of the leaders of Iraq and Baghdad and of all who are working to find peace be found precious in Your sight. May many turn to You in prayer in that land, recognizing our humble dependence on You for all good things and may healing come to Iraq and to the Middle East. Please also watch over our troops in Afghanistan who are engaged in very a strategic battle in liberation of that nation from the Taliban. May it be Your will that is done in these lands and on this earth, and may we respond with grateful and submissive hearts because of Your great goodness and mercy over all. In Jesus’ Precious Name.

    Father, I thank you for this beautiful day, thank you for your precious Son, Jesus Christ, our LORD and Savior. I especially thank you for answering our prayers and bringing forth less and less violence and blood shed of the innocent people in Iraq and Afghanistan. YOU ARE FAITHFUL AND YOUR PROMISES ARE AMEN AND YOUR YES’ ARE AMEN. YOU LORD deserve ALL the glory, praise, and honor, you reign majesticaly in the heavens hallelujah.

    Precious Lord, I speak to Iraq and the Middle East and say “HE will not let you stumble and fall; for He watches over you and will not sleep. The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade. The Lord keeps you from all evil and preseves your life”. Lord be with al-Maliki, and may he receive your wisdom. Give him favor from you Lord, and help his weakness to become Your power in his life. Be with the other leaders that works along side him that Iraq will become a city of Peace and a city that knows You as their God.

    LORD my Savior and Guide, to Iraqis leaders and to PResident Bush I say “THE LORD IS FAITHFUL; HE will make you strong and guard you from THE EVIL ONE, WHO WANTS TO ROB, KILL, AND DESTROY”. Heavenly Father, bless and protect the prime minster of Iraq and his fellow leaders FROM ALL HARM. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit please hover over Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Middle East at this time and season. Open all the doors and windows to allow YOUR WORD AND THE LOVE OF JESUS to enter into the land and to know you as their Lord and King. Let them know that you are still the LORD GOD ALMIGTHY of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob plus let them know what was done yesterday in the Bible can be done today, and will still be done in the future.

    Lord, give forth your wisdom to ALL the leaders that is involved in this war. May they have peace of mind and know your plans for today in how to handle the enemy. BLESS OUR SOLDIERS father, and give them peace of mind and provide for them all their needs. I ask also that you would SUPPLY ALL THE NEEDS OF THOSE THAT ARE SUFFERING FROM THIS WAR. SHOW FORTH YOUR LOVE, AND GIVE THEM JOY AND BEAUTY IN PLACE OF THEIR ASHES. Father, your will be done on earth today as its written in heaven, and may your kingdom come soon. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit I pray and give all glory. Amen

    Katie Rhodes Says:

    Father in heaven, thank You for faithfully loving at all times. We praise Your wisdom, so far above our own!

    Jesus said whatever we bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever we loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Guide us to use these keys to Your Kingdom as we pray over Baghdad today.

    We agree to release peace in Jesus Christ over Baghdad today. We release the good news of Jesus Christ over Baghdad today. We release Your Spirit of power, love, and a sound mind over the leaders in Baghdad.

    We agree to bind all wickedness from that land this morning, and to cut off every evildoer from that city, in Jesus’ Name. Thank You for a flood of peace and good news over Baghdad even now.

    Thank You for sweeping the city of wickedness and evil, purifying the hearts of the soldiers and the citizens, and the leaders in all nations involved. Let Baghdad become a place of honor today, in Jesus’ Name.

    Father God, we agree especially for the young soldiers there: we release to them favor, protection in body, mind, and spirit; we release to them hope, good will, courage, integrity, wisdom beyond their years to trust in You, Lord, at all times and not fear.

    We ask You, Lord, to release from heaven all that we have released on earth. Grant us all to display honorable behavior today, in Jesus’ Name. We release a spirit of gratitude over America, that we would repent of pride, selfishness, and fear, that we would honor those who are sacrificing so much for us, and especially that we would honor the One who sacrificed everything for all people.

    God Almighty, thank you for another day in which to praise you and seek you in prayer. We ask for a special blessing on the people of Iraq today that you would protect them from harm. We ask for protection over the leaders in the government and for wisdom in all their decisions. Most of all we ask that your name be glorified and magnified in Iraq. All the other gods are idols. They cannot speak, or hear or do miracles. Only the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is alive and well and does exploits. We ask in the name of Jesus, or Lord.

    There is an article in today’s Springfield, Illinois newspaper about how the number of deaths for both US soldiers and Iraqi civilians is dramatically down. Everyone is trying to figure out why. Those of us that have been praying know why. Praise goes to God the Father, His Son Jesus, and His Holy Spirit. My son is serving with the US Army in Iraq and your prayers for God’s protection are much appreciated.

    Thank you dear Father for all you have done and are doing in our lives. Thank you for hearing and answering our prayers concerning the war in Iraq. We again come to you today with thanksgiving for your protection of the children, elderly and parents that are on the side of good. Help them to be safe and have food, shelter, clothing and love. the little children are suffering so much. So many of them are without parents or one parent. All they see is destruction. Please, oh Lord, allow them to come to know you and have peace in their heart. Supress the evil ones so that their plans will not be able to be carried out. Help them to see that something supernatural is happening and have them lay down their guns and weapons , bombs, etc and turn their face to the God of the universe and come into a relationship with you. Oh Father, we bow our knees before you in gratitude for all you have given to us here in this land of the U.S.A. do not allow the evil ones pass laws that totally are against all of your laws. We need your power to be seen among those in authority in our land . Oh Father our hearts are so heavy as we watch the people of Iraq as well as here in the United States totally disregarding you.
