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!

    My prayer, Lord God is that You be revealed to the leaders ans the people of Iraq; that You be lifted up. There is no true peace unless it is in You. I pray for all our men and women who are in Iraq, that they too be in Your protection and know that You are with them; that they can call upon You, dear Jesus and You hear and answer. In Jesus Name!

    Dear Father; I thank You for Your Grace and mercy how You kept us safe during 2007. Thank You keeping us alive to see another year. I thank You that Your hands are upon the people living in the Middle East: I thank You and ask that You appoint the right individuals to reign as leaders in Baghdad, and over other towns in the Middle East:
    I ask that you assign each of them an angel to protect their physically well-beigns, and that Your spirit of discernment is placed within each lesder/ruler in Baghdad.
    I ask this and other Blessings in Jesus name, Amen.

    Prayer for leaders = nothing has changed. the scriptures tell us to do this everyday and so we do but, the big but, the evil ones know this and work all the harder to undo governments by assasination, unwise words to the wise and meddling in the business of countries which are not theirs.

    All the more, Lord, we bow before You in thanks for Your tenderness for those we know need Your assistance. Do not hold back Great One. You know the end from the beginning and so You know who needs to be helped and who needs to be hindered. You are the Wonderful One who holds us close!

    MThompson Says:

    Father God,
    We ask You to grant a redemption for the land of Iraq. Loose the bands of wickedness and set the people free from oppression and moral darkness. Bring the everlasting light of the Gospel to those who would listen and respond to Your call while there is still time. Thank you for your longsuffering thus far.
    Bring redemption and salvation to Iraq and to our American Soldiers. To those who come in the name of peace let peace come back to them. Let peace wash over our troops who labor for righteousness sake, let that peace that only You can give, come over them like a river.
    And as this season of separation approaches from all our Soldier’s loved ones, please become their One True Love now and forevermore. In Jesus Name we ask these things, Amen, MT

    Father, Praise be to You O Lord!!

    Lord, continue the work you are doing throughout Iraq and Afghanistan! Even so Lord we pray in earnest that the momentum of Your Holy Sprit continues to spread through the neighborhoods of Baghdad and through the provinces of Iraq! We thank you for working so mightily in Kirkuk.

    Lord, quicken the hearts of the leaders of Iraq to reach consensus and to reconcile their differences that more blessings can be bestowed on Iraq. Not by might not by power but by My Spirit says the Lord!!

    Protect all the leaders and those whom You are appointing to power that the work You have begun will be completed in Iraq!

    Bless all the Saints of the Patrol and their families. May our intercession give You all the glory and work out salvation, healing, deliverance, and peace!!

    Dear Lord Jesus we pray for the safety of all of the leaders in Iraq. Especially protect Prime Minister al-Maliki and give him wisdom from on high to make the right decisions for his country. Return Iraq to a peaceful state so that the citizens may enjoy peace. Protect each one who is striving to reach this goal. We pray in your precious name Lord Jesus. Amen

    Psalms 91 verses 3-5 declares:
    Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence.
    4. He shall cover you with His feathers,
    And under His wings you shall take refuge.
    His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
    5. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day.

    Father God, I ask that you would BRING DELIVERANCE from the snare of the fowler and perilous pestilence for our soldiers and the Iraqi’s. To COVER THEM ALL with your feathers, including Al-Maliki and all his followers. May they TAKE REFUGE under your wings, and YOUR TRUTH TO BE THEIR SHIELD AND BUCKLER. Help them Father, not to be afraid of the terror that is before them. In the name of Jesus I demand the enemy and his followers to be bound, and not be able to bring destruction in Iraq. Father, I release YOUR PEACE OVER THE LAND OF IRAQ. I release your WORD into the hearts and mind of all the leaders, and give them wisdom from You. To those that know you as their Lord in Iraq I ask that you would release your faith and to make FAITH THEIR SIGHT. Help them Father, to look forward at all times, and never look backwards. Lord, may this month and Christmas Season be a blessed one like never before for Iraq and our Soldiers. In the name of Jesus I pray this and say thank you Father, for your love and answering our prayers. YOUR WILL FATHER, BE DONE ON EARTH AS YOU HAVE IT WRITTEN IN HEAVEN AND ALL GLORY, PRAISE, AND HONOR IS YOURS. AMEN

    Father, You are the One Who puts leaders in and we ask that You protect each of them. Each is there for Your reasons and we trust You with the life of each. Speak to the heart of each leader as only You can. Give each one the insight and wisdom needed for the task each has to do, and encourage the heart of each one of them.

    Father, deliver us also from the hands of those here in this nation who would take away our freedom, especially the First Amendment. Bring us back to the nation the founding fathers envisioned in the Constitution. Protect our troops wherever they are today. Come against anything our political leaders would try to do to prolong the war in Iraq. We pray in Jesus’ Name, Amen

    As the Church of Jesus Christ in Iraq has called a national day of prayer for Iraq on December 2nd, I pray that an enormous cry of intercession will rise throughout the Earth asking for Your Kingdom to come in Iraq, Lord Father God. May the leaders in Iraq, beginning with Prime MInister al-Maliki, receive dreams and visions and rhema words about Jesus the Messiah. And cause them to come to Your Son, Father, for their good and for Your glory! In Jesus’ name. You said that we could ask and You would give us the heathen, and the uttermost parts of the earth. Praise God!

    Dear God, On this first day of December I ask for your blessing on our troops and their families around the world. Comfort them during this time of separation. Comfort them in this time of anxiety because of duty they have before them. Lord, be especially near them during this holiday season. May your presence be known. May those of us in the Christian family reach out to those who have special needs during this deployment. Keep us aware of our need to serve others and guard our troops from harm. In Jesus Name, Amen

    Heavenly Father,

    I trust in Your provision of Jesus to go before me when I come into Your presence seeking Your divine and holy attention. It is through Jesus that I make my intercession today. And it is in recognition of Your great power and love and compassion that I am prompted to offer prayers on behalf of the leaders in Baghdad and Iraq. Lord, You know the respect the leaders are given not only by those they lead but also by the enemy. The enemy, however, respects only in a negative way. They realize if they manage to take down the leaders it will cause chaos and confusion within the ranks of the followers. I pray, Lord, that You would be fully backing the leaders while at the same time leading them forward according to Your divine knowledge. If You are for them who can be against them? Give them security and protection from all kinds of harm. If there are spies in their presence I pray You would expose their operations. When bombs are in their paths please make them fail to explode. Do not let any form of weapon have success against the leaders. And please let there be no conflicts from within that would cause collaspe of leadership. You know all the forces at work against the leaders and I am sure I have failed to mention some. Even strife within the leaders’ families could cause discouragement so I pray You would bless the leaders’ families with a spirit of unity to support the work of the leaders. Please bring all the leaders to a knowledge of Jesus. Clear any obstacles that keep them from knowing Him as their Savior. I praise You for the great deeds You will do for the leaders this day in Baghdad and Iraq. Your hands are full of blessings to be released and at this moment I pray You let the showers of blessings begin. Through Jesus, Amen

    Father God – the One True God – I pray for these leaders, that your mercy will cover them with a shield, and grant them wisdom in decisions they make for the sake of their country and their people. They may be praying to Allah, looking for help from him, but their prayers to Allah cannot be answered, for he is not there to answer. I know your mercies are great, Father, and I ask that they extend to these unbelievers, and – even as you have used non-believers before to accomplish your purposes – you will do so again. There are some Christians in that country, Lord, and I ask your protection over them, and favor in the sight of the authorities. Strengthen them, Lord, as they risk everything to remain faithful to You. In Jesus’ all-powerful name,

    Dave Halloran Says:

    Amen,amen and Jesus, you are the reason they are “hanging in there” to free their people of the violent oppression. We praise you in gratitude for your mercy to those people, and to all of us. In your name, Jesus, Amen

    All Mighty God,I pray for the leaders in Baghdad, Iraq and all of the middle east who are being threatened by the evil one.

    We marvel at your greatness and goodness!! We bless you today Lord!! We exalt You and thank you for the opportunity to reak havoc in the enemy’s camp this day! We thank you You that we have another month of devil woopin’ ( A little Southern lingo for ya) over Baghdad, Iraq and Afghanistan! Greater is He who is in us than he who is of the world!

    Our home is in heaven and in the words of Keith Green we are living in a garbage can compared to heaven! Its trash day in our neighborhood and I rolled out the can at 5:00 am this morning, its about that time in Baghdad now so….. Lord its time to take out some garbage in the lives of the people and leadership of Iraq and Afghanistan!

    We pray that the mindset of the leadership of Iraq will be pierced with the wisdom of Christ! In the last days all nations will see the glory of the Lord and have an opportunity to respond to His saving grace. We pray for Prime Ministers Al-Maliki and Karzai and ask that their eyes be opened to Yeshua as Messiah!! We ask that Ishmael will not look to his hated past but that he too can inherit the Isaac blessing of salvation through Yeshua. For the Lord loves the Ishmaelites too! Loose their minds to understand that Abraham worshipped I AM. So like father like son… let Ishmael worship Yeshua!

    We pray for the leadership of the political parties that they can find common ground and do away with sectarian division. A house divided cannot stand!

    We pray for the work that continues throughout the land. Every project of reconstruction we ask manifold blessing today! We ask that all the garbage of the past be cleansed and a new era of rebuilding comes to its full fruition!

    We pray that the military and police forces are cleansed of all elements of sabatoge and deceit! We ask that all sectarian division be stilled and the blessing of reconciliation be made known NOW! hfjagsfghfgjhks (speaking in tongues) 🙂

    Father, we pray that outside corruptive influence from the border nations around Iraq are dismantled and that You stand-up Iraq for itself! Grant courage to the people to serve their county! Let the Godly heritage of the USA be the influence over Iraq and Afghanistan! We loose freedom and responsibility and bind oppression and tyranny!

    Lord Yeshua You are so awesome that You have heard our prayers and we know the the faithful fervent prayers of Your children shake the heavens and the earth is made aware of Your pleasure! Reap Your harvest in these lands so that our brave soldiers and support personnel can come home! Until then we continue to Plead the Blood of Jesus over them from the top of their heads to the soles of their feet. Go before them and be their rear guard. Bless their hands in warfare and bring peace with the sword where necessary. Grant favor to our leaders and wisdom from on high! We pray that the Blessing of Joshua be upon them that the lands are rid of all who impede justice, righteousness, progress, truth, and salvation!

    To YESHUA be all the glory!!

    Heavenly Father, You are such a One that the world can not fully comprehend Your greatness. You are so full of kindness, loving generosity and majesty. Your holiness and righteousness inspires us to imitate You. We pray to You because You are supreme and can effect wonderous miracles in the world. We specifically ask that You would direct the happenings in Baghdad so that the innocent would be protected and the ones who follow evil plots and plans would be routed out of the city. Protect those who work as Your agents in the city to bring about changes that will secure the peace of the city. Give a strong pillar of authority to the leaders in charge and encourage the people to look to their leaders for guidance. You are most excellent in all Your ways God and I trust in You to make good things happen in Your precious city of Baghdad. Pour Your blessings on all You deem deserving in that city, through Jesus. Amen
