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!

    Heavenly and Gracious Lord of all mankind! We come to you today and ask for Your guidance, protection and wisdom for the leaders of Baghdad. Lord, please give them the endurance to lead this country to democracy. Father God, we ask that You put your hedge of protection around the innocent of this land and shield them from the firey darts of the evil ones. Lord, please give the comfort to those families who lost loved ones in this vicious spiritual battle that continues there, and please bring them Hope through my Lord Jesus Christ. Please also protect all the soldiers who are there trying to help bring the peace upon this land and keep them from all of the evil schemes around. Thank you that you hear our prayers, and together we ask for the guidance needed throughout Baghdad. In Jesus’ name I pray and bring these to Your Throne of Glory and Power! Amen

    Heavenly Father, I come before you and bow down in love and prayer for the souls of Iraq and the whole Middle East. I thank you Father for all the protection that has been given to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan, and for the protection our soldiers received by the blood of Jesus and our fervant prayers.

    Father, and Lord Jesus Christ, I humble come and pray that you would send forth angels into the atmosphere and into the principalities and fight the evil ones and their strongholds over the whole Middle East. I CLAIM Father, that many stongholds will be taken down. I CLAIM that your LOVE, MERCY, GRACE, AND PEACE will reign in and over the Middle East. I CLAIM that souls will be brought to your Son and the Cross for salvation. I pray now Father that the leaders of Iraq and Afghanistan be lead by you and the Holy Spirit. I pray that you will cover them with your feathers and wings as a shield. I CLAIM that the leaders of these countries will RISE UP IN POWER AND TRIUMPHLY WIN VICTORIOUSLY. Cleanse their hearts and minds of all the enemy has emplanted, and give them YOUR MINDSET. Protect, comfort, and give healing peace to those who lost loved one today because of the two foolish bombers. FATHER bring peace into this nation, and the Middle East. May they hear your call “come unto me who are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” In the Holy name of Jesus I pray this and give all the glory to the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and Amen

    Father, we do bind the one who comes to kill and bring violence to the city and country of Iraq and also of Afghanistan. We come to You, Lord, asking for Your divine power to be dispersed upon this land and it’s people that are so riddled with violence and fear. Coming to learn of the female suicide bomber whos actions killed 51 people in the markets today makes me realize that we cannot become complacent here as we live in peace and freedom. Help us to always keep in mind the needs of those who face these awful situations day by day. Help us always to keep in mind our soldiers who are day by day defending them. Father, protect our brave troops and the people of Iraq and Afghanistan who desire to live in a democratic society and in peace. I pray that You would call Your heavenly hosts to guard and protect and bring our troops home in Your good timing and Your will. May You receive the glory, Father, in Jesus name. Amen and Amen

    Judith Connell, Greenbank, On., Canada Says:

    The news today is outrageous. Two women served as suicide bombers in a popular street market. How can they hope to have their version of ‘paradise’ if they behave as men? These zealots do not know their own koran or our Holy Book. God of gods firmly hold the necks of all who would harm the innocents in order to bring proper peace back to all the countries of the world that are war-torn. We thank You and praise You above everything.

    Every day I pray “a wall of fire” around each town, village city and coalition patrol group. (Zechariah 2:5) Jesus is the wall of fire! He is our protector and deliver, our wall of fire in times of trouble. also Psalm 91 is the dewelling place of all those fighting for our and Iraq’s freedom. God bless

JESUS SAITH UNTO HER, WOMAN BELIEVE ME, THE HOUR COMETH, WHEN YE SHALL NEITHER IN THIS MOUNTAIN, NOT YET AT JERUSALEM, WORSHIP THE FATHER. 22. YE WORSHIP YE KNOW NO WHAT: WE KNOW WHAT; WE KNOW WHAT WE WORSHIP FOR SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS. 23. BUT THE HOUR COMET, AND NOW IS WHEN THE TRUE WORSHIPPERS SHALL WORSHIP THE FATHER A SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH: FOR THE FATHER SEEKETH SUCH TO WORSHIP HIM. 24.

    Katie Rhodes Says:

    Father in heaven, we offer You our hearts in worship. Live in us through the grace that is in Christ Jesus; rearrange our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls to be pleasing to You in everything today, for You are worthy of all our love and devotion.

    Father, grant us to feel Your heart for the people of Iraq, for the soldiers and their families, for those being used by the enemy in terrorism, yet keep us from being overwhelmed, Lord, for we are small. Our souls are like weaned children resting against the heart of our mother; we do not involve ourselves in things too great for us; we put our trust in God alone.

    You alone are adequate for these things, so we lean into You, Lord God, Maker of heaven and earth, Maker of our souls. We ask You to place a wall of protection around the people of Baghdad, to protect them from the hatred of the enemy, to shield them from terrors, to guard them from pride, to comfort them for all they have suffered. Grant them honor as they look to You for deliverance, that Jesus might be revealed in the sight of the nations.

    Kathleen Says:

    My Lord of Mercy! Shower your mercy on the poor innocent people who were killed in the senseless bloodthirsty violence at the animal markets. Send your Guardian Angels to surround the people with your loving protection! Keep our troops safe and keep them working steadfastedly to unite all the warring factions and to isolate the evildoers. Amen!

    Dear God: What a privilege to join with the many others that are beleving for Your Miracle to happen in Bagdad. I just learned this morning that some 50 were killed by suicide bombers. It is too late to pray for their souls, but we do pray for thost that are being trained for suicide bombings. Women and children as well as men are being recruited for this. God plese speak to them in a language they can understand and for them to open their hearts and lives to the Lord. You are the God of impossible doings, we believe and trust You. May many more join the ranks to pray for Bagdad residents and their leaders. AMEN AND AMEN

    Laura Says:

    Hear oh God the prayers for Your people who plead on behalf of Baghad and Iraq. Father they pray fervantly and faithfully for You to deliver this country. We pray Father that You will make the leaders of the country unite their hearts and minds, laying aside their differences to think of what is good for their people. We know You Oh Lord know what is right for these people so we ask that You deliver to the leaders Your message, Your purpose and Your plan. Rebuild Iraq Lord, send the right ones to do this as You sent Nehemiah to rebuild Jerusalem send someone to rebuild Iraq – We turn to You Oh Lord our God, Our King and Our Savior

    Dear Lord, Thank you for a new month. May your will be accomplished in Baghdad and Iraq. Please protect the Prime Minister; send warring angels to protect his life and family. Give him wisdom and may his eyes be opened to who you are. May your protection be on the other leaders of Baghdad and Iraq and also on the leaders in our Military. Give them also wisdom and guidance. Encourage our troops throughout this new month. May many find you as their Savior this month. May their be no deaths this month. We believe that all things are possible! Amen.

    Dan Eberly Says:

    Lord, at this critical time in the history of Baghdad and the world, we ask for Your intervention. Come, God, in the power of Your Might. Do what you are good at doing. Bring the much needed peace. Touch governmental leaders. Break the back of terrorists. Destroy the plans of those who plot evil acts of violence. Come, Holy Spirit, stir men and women everywhere to pray with all diligence. Let there be an increase of angelic activity that delivers the prayers of Your people to the throne of Your Presence.

    Thank You Father for Your grace and mercy You have toward us. Thank You for Your word to show us Your ways.
    Father we lift up the Iraqi people and ask protection for the innocent and the leaders of that country.
    We ask You to comfort the families of those who lost their lives today in the bombings. Please show them mercy and grace in this time of need. We ask You to reveal Yourself to all those who don’t know You as Lord and savior
    Pour out Your Holy Spirit in a mighty way and be glorified today
    Protect our troops from all the plans of the enemy, reveal danger before it is manifest.
    Hold them in Your right hand of righteousness

    Betsy McAllister Says:

    Father, YOur Word to me this morning about the USA elections is: “I’m still on the throne!” This is the truth for the government in Iraq also. This is the truth for the city of Baghdad, Mosul, and all others. This is true for the people of Iraq and Afghanistan and Israel. Our God reigns! Reign in more hearts today, please, Father. Let them see Jesus. In His name I pray!

    Amanda Says:

    Father protect those who step forward and offer to be leaders in this country. These are brave men and women and I ask that you would honor them with wisdom and grace.

    Surround the troops today with your protection in Jesus name.

    Mary Says:

    Dear Father, You gave your Son to win on the Cross the Title and Authority of Prince of Peace. And now You have determined to reclaim the area of Iraq for the Prince of Peace, and for Yourself. We agree with You,Father, agree with this desire coming from your heart, to reclaim this area for YOurself, to spoil the house of the spirit of nimrod, and set the captives free. We believe that when we agree on earth with what is coming from YOur heart, it will be done. So we emphatically agree with your heart, that the captives of the spirit of nimrod be set free for ever, and brought into Your kingdom of light by Jesus powerful Name.

    Joan Gintella Says:

    Lord, I come in agreement with the people on this post who are praying very hard each and every day for the people of Iraq and our men and women in uniform. We have not given up on peace in Iraq and we will never give up, even in the face of adversity. I read where two women bombed a market and 70 innocent people were killed. Lord Lord, you love these people and I ask that you send your warring angels to stop the murder and destruction in Iraq. Our military can do nothing without your guidance and I ask that you be with each and every American Soldier and the Iraqi Soldiers who are helping fight this battle. Put a hedge of protection around the people in Iraq who want peace. Knock on the doors of the hearts of the people in Iraq who want death and destruction. Praise be to you, our Father, our Redeemer, our Saviour. Without you we are nothing. Your will be done Lord. In Jesus name, Amen and Amen

  20. 126
    Ruth Nunn Says:

    Father, we have NOT given up! We stand with these people that you love. We are expecting total freedom from this mess for these people. We trust You with their lives. Give their leaders wisdom. Give strength to those who fight for life and safety and peace. We continue looking to You for these people and for this land.

    Cynthia Rydelnik Says:

    Dear Heavenly Father, we come before You with sadness in our hearts because of the many Iraqis that were killed today from suicide bombers. Father we pray for comfort for the loved ones and friends of these souls. And we continue to pray for Your Word to go forth in Baghdad and all over Iraq that many citizens and leaders of that nation will turn their hearts and lives in saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Lord, there is no other god in Heaven and earth but You; we pray that You will come against the forces of hell in the Name and through the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, and that these demonic beings will flee from this city and this country.
    Protect our troops from harm, also, O Lord – put Your holy angels around them and make them aware of people and situations that are potentially dangerous, so that weapons can be found and destroyed and those that would do harm will be captured or killed. We do lift up the leadership in Iraq for wisdom and guidence in governing their people.

    Most of all, O Lord, we pray that Your Will is done in Iraq – we long to see souls saved, lives restored to health and strength, a stable government that will not fall under the influence of Iran or any other influence. Thank You, O God, that You love the Iraqi people with a love that pursues them to accept Your free gift of salvation.

    In Jesus’most Holy Name we pray with thanksgiving, Amen.

    Sherrill Says:

    Father, help us to take time out from our busy lives to focus intently on the priorities, one of which is prayer, and the priority of prayer for our troops. It has been said the troops are fighting the war and the country is shopping at Walmart. Open our eyes, Lord, in Jesus’ Name, Amen

    nina Says:

    Dear Heavenly Father blessed be Your name. Please bring healing and comfort to those inflicted by the haters wrath of darkness on Baghdad. Jesus I pray be with us, be with them. Shield them Lord from this pain and destruction. Open everyone’s eyes to see the evil for what it is and where ever it is. Expose this darkness and let no one of pure heart and peaceful intentions be fooled around the world. Stand with us against it. Fill us up and surround us with Your Holy Spirit and faith. Lead in our actions, words, plans, intentions and forgive our sins and weaknesses. Keep our hearts pure and receptive to Your truth. Please continue to come to the Muslim people that they will know You, Your love for them. That they will know our love and good intentions for them because it is Your will. Father I pray also for Israel. Protect them Lord. Please tell them about Jesus. Embrace them Jesus and let them see the glory of Our Father in You. Embolden Christians everywhere, fill them with urgency, open eyes, give them arms to reach out everywhere. Bring to life their gifts, let their words be Your words. Don’t let Satan stand in our way. In Jesus mighty name I pray, Amen.

    Alecia Turner Says:

    “Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect our gifts, the Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine & others deployed in harm’s way. Protect
    them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. I ask this in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Amen.”

  25. 121
    Sharon Says:

    Father, your glory outshines the sun. Psalm 138:2 says that you have magnified your word above your name. So we stand today on the word of the living God. You are our high tower and we run to you. Satan has come to destroy any peace that has happened or might come in Baghdad and all of Iraq. He hates our prayers and meditations. So God we stand with you and on your holy word and ask that you speak the word and defeat the demons and principalities and powers over Baghdad. We have no power over this enemy except through the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
