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, we look to your supernatural provision and we pray no more fiery darts of the enemy. Let their darts fall helplessly by the wayside, may they bump into each other in confusion. Lord let a mighty righteous cry arise with your Holy Spirit and ignite a fire in all who favor peace….NO MORE! NO MORE! NO MORE! No more will the enemy have control, no longer will fear and evil have dominion, IT IS ENOUGH! Let the AK-47’s of the Lord Jesus and His mighty Army fire spiritual bullets that will stop the enemy in their tracks! Let Freedom rain and reign as we claim the land for the Lord, He says we are fully able, so be it for His Kingdom, in Jesus name we unitedly say…AMEN Lord! In the name and by the Blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

    BEWalsh Says:

    Friends, pray for the entrance of God’s Word into Bagdad; the witness of Jesus through Iraqi Christians. Those who are hell bent on violence, killing etc. cannot be changed outside of redemption through the blood of Jesus. Pray for conviction of sin, judgement and righteousness in the hearts of leaders and those in authority

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    The enemy has spoken in Baghdad again that they have no regard for life, either their own or any one’s. Suicide bombers have been so deceived by those they serve. I pray that you would do a great work in the hearts of any who are considering working in that capacity and place in them a new spirit of understanding of the value of life and do not let them be talked into that role. You are the God of life. That is what You have always been about since the beginning in Genesis…long before the words were in written form You spoke and made life happen. Please Lord do overcome all the death and destruction in Baghdad. Do not let it rule over the people. Press on full force with life for all the innocents, the troops, the police and the leaders. For those who have lost loved ones or see their loved ones suffering from wounds at this point I pray You will give them courage to go through the days of grieving. Make a way to come into their lives and comfort them with the peace that passes all understanding. Give them Christian consolation and compassion. God, I also ask that You would bless the leaders especially today as they may be downhearted because of this recent work of evil in the city. Give them resolve to stick with their duties doing their best for their countrymen and women and children. Give continuing hope for peace and for good to prevail in the face of such evil.
    Shower these people with Your love and caring. I pray along with all the others here on the web and throughout the world for the sake of Your precious ones You created to live in Baghdad. Through Jesus, Amen

    Dear Lord, please protect those in authority in Bagdad, so they can protect their people for the ones that wish to do evil. I pray that they will find peace and safety in their land. In Jesus’ precious name, AMEN!

    Your daughter, Darcel Says:

    Dearest Abba Father,
    We are saddened by the news of innocent lives taken and many injured this morning by misguided suicide bombers. We come against the spirit of death, which is hallowed in this terrorist training. You came to give us life. You say choose life, not death. You came to give us freedom from bondage and oppression.
    We ask that the people that believe in death training be touched by the knowledge of You and your Son.
    We ask that you send angels to comfort the families of the lost and injured.
    In Jesus Name,
    Your daughter, Darcel

    Donna Says:

    Father, I pray that Your comfort & peace will surrond the families of the victims killed today. That they will cry out to You – for You will answer. Help all the Iraqis to be on watch & protect them from furhter violence. Don’t allow the need for vengence take hold. Give them Your love & forgiveness. In Jesus name, AMen.

    Sabrina Says:

    Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, I come before Your throne asking that You will honor the petitions that are coming before You this day on behalf of the leaders and innocent people in Baghdad. I also ask for this same petition to go over to Afghanistan and other war torn countries as well. Amen

    Joan Bowe Says:

    Heavenly Father, we come before You today with praise on our lips and thanksgiving in our hearts. There is no one like You, Holy One – no one. And it is with confidence we seek Your help and protection for the leaders in Iraq who are seeking justice for the people of this land. We that You protect them as we plead the blood of the Lamb over each one of them, in Jesus’ name.

    Lord, we also cry out for justice to prevail over this land. Once again evil has touched its soil as innocent lives have been taken and their blood spilled. Father, we ask that You have mercy on their souls if they left this world not knowing You or Your Son. Bring comfort to their families in this time of sorrow and let their lives not have been lost in vain. We ask this through Your Son, our Lord and King, Jesus Christ. Let Your Light so shine over Baghdad and all of Iraq that not one person is untouched by Your goodness. Let this be so, in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

    Johannes Hilpertshauser Says:

    Psalm 11:1-7
    To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
    In the LORD put I my trust: how say you to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain? For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may secretly shoot at the upright in heart. If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
    The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD’S throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids test, the children of men. The LORD tests the righteous: but the wicked and him that loves violence his soul hates. Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and a horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
    For the righteous LORD loves righteousness; his countenance does behold the upright.

    Dear Father in Heaven, please let Your Name be honored, especially in troubled places like Baghdad. I pray that evil will have no victory or success in that land or in Afghanistan, dear Lord, but that righteousness and truth will triumph. I pray for the leaders’ safety and that they might have opportunity to develop and rebuild their nation after time of war, and to establish an orderly society based on right principles of government. May it be so in Jesus’ Precious Name. Amen.

    Sherrill Says:

    Father, we know it takes more than an advance from one year to a new one to implement change, but our eyes are on You. You can do in one instant of time more than man can do forever without Your help. We look to You to give us wise leaders, save our land, and put an end to war and pain. You, alone, have the answers. Open our ears to hear, we pray in Jesus’ Name.

    Lois Lively Says:

    Hevenly Father, I offer up to you this afternoon my prayer for the Iraqi’s and the land of Iraq. First, I want to thank you for hearing all our prayers in 2007 and answering them. You Heavenly Father, are our Lord and Savior, and a awesome God. You RULE OVER ALL THE NATIONS, and you created the heavens and earth for your pleasures and to give us a place to live and help you care for the earth. I give you praise, glory, and honor for everything you done so far, and for what you will do in the year of 2008.

    Lord, guide and direct the leaders in Iraq and may the angels protect the prime minister Al-Maliki, and may he receive your wisdom for this new year. May your blessings be upon our men and women over there fighting along side the Iraqi’s. Give them wisdom from above and may the Holy Spirit guide them in your Word and in prayer. Comfort Father, the families of our soldiers and the Iraqi soldiers. Bring forth your Glory, healing, and new souls into your kingdom this year. MAY WE ALL START OUT THE NEW YEAR in prayer, your Word, bring honor to your name, and giving you praise and glory for loving us. I pray this Lord in the name of our wonderful Savior Jesus. Amen

    Glory and Honor and Blessings, and Strength, be Unto You Lord! He who sets at The Right Hand of God. Jesus, I come to You today, seeking Wisdom, Strength. Lord I ask that You Lord, bestow these things upon Our Leaders here and the Leaders of Iraq. Do not allow our enemy to get a foothold, or to influence any of the decisions made over Iraq in 2008. Your Kingdom come, Your will be done!

    Lord, bring this Nation into unity. I know that when one pulls this way, another pulling another way it accomplishes nothing, a stand still. I ask for you God to intervene, bring the leaders together, in agreement on important issues concerning this land. Peace, Respect, Unity.

    Lord Your will and my heart would want this to be a nation under God. Establish your throne within this nation if not in there hearts and lives. What a miracle this will be. A sign to the Middle East, that You Lord are the only God! Nothing is Impossible for You!

    Lord God, protect the innocent, peaceloving people of Iraq, this day. the enemy is still rooming about seeking those to kill and destroy. father stop them this day. Allow the dead to be buried without dying themselves. I plead the Blood of Jesus over the innocent ones in Iraq. Lord you hold there future, not the devil. I say PEACE, be still.

    Again I ask, expose the hiding place of OBL, like you exposed Hussein. Uncover him, let no place be safe. Thank you Lord, again, and again!

    Ann from AL Says:

    Father, we pray for unity among the Iraqis. We know that the boundaries of Iraq were created by man and that we don’t understand how Muslims can be at war with their brothers but You, O Lord, know all things. Protect the new Iraqi government. Cause them to work toward your plan and not their own. You raise up kingdoms and you pull them down. Raise up a government in Iraq so that the people can live together in peace against an enemy who seeks to destroy them. We bind up the forces of the kingdom of darkness and the prince of persia. We ask you Father to send your Holy Angels to perform your word of peace and unity. Amen

    Joan Gintella Says:

    Yes Heavenly Father, I come in agreement with this prayer for Baghdad – we bind the enemy who comes to kill and destroy the innocent civilians and our soldiers. We ask that the terrorist’s weapons and bombs be rendered useless, confusing the enemy camp, leaving them doubting their evil intentions . We pray that their eyes will be opened to the wrongs that they are doing and they will fall down upon their knees and cry out to you dear Saviour to forgive them of their sins. We pray that they will open their hearts to your loving will and start praising and worshiping you instead of killing and destroying. Lord, I know it can be done, there is nothing you can not accomplish and I pray that these things will happen. Protect our men and women in uniform and I pray that those who do not know you will give their lives over to you. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen
