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 Lord: We(as Intercessors) come before Your throne of Glory asking for Your supernatural protection for the leaders in Iraq.
    Your word declares that the King’s heart is in Your hands, and You turn it whatsoever way you choose. I ask today that each leader in Lraq is bold, confident and filled with Holy Ghost power.
    I ask that You release Your Angels to stand at the doorposts of those men and women You have chosen as the ones who will lead the Iraqui people to a full Godly and democratic recovery.
    I ask this in Jesus name,

    Judith E. Connell Says:

    We are instructed to pray daily for our leaders and this would include all leaders both good and bad such as al-Sadr. It must have been very hard for Christians to pray for Nero or the Herodian dynasty. But being a politically savvy Christian one can certainly be aware that there are worse alternatives and so having a conversation with the HOLY TRINITY concerning al-Maliki and al-Sadr certainly beats searching for the unknown names of insurgents of just a few months ago. God always put things in perspectives.

    Father, we trust You with the lives of the leaders of this land. We look for total victory for this land and for this people.

    Dearest Heavenly Father:
    We know that You withold no good thing from those who walk uprightly and whose mind is set on Thee.

    Lord we ask that you open the heavens over Iraq and continually pour out blessings of restoration and health to the all the people unreservedly.
    That our Soldiers and the Iraqi leaders would join in their efforts to utilize the blessings you will provide for them now.
    Please restore health, wealth and time lost for our Soldiers as well as the Iraqi’s caught in the middle of this war.
    Give great and wonderful leaders now for the Iraqi people so that prosperity might flow like the Eurphrates River.
    Give back to all: our men and their men the years that the locust have eaten, the years of dustruction reverse completely and let a new era begin.
    Let peace March in the land of Iraq and let our Soldiers March out of the land and back to their own land that needs them so much.
    In Jesus Name we pray Amen

    Father in Heaven, Holy is Your Name. I pray that You will place a wall of protection around the leaders of Baghdad and keep them safe so that they may do their jobs of governing this city. I pray, also, for all of the people of Baghdad; that they will have food, clothing, and shelter and will be kept safe. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen

    Cover the leaders with your wisdom and direction. Give the courage to stand against those who want to destroy them and the peace they are able to have at this time. Shine your light into the dark places so those who plan to harm them can be seen.
    Caputre the hearts of your children here and lead them to follow after you.

    For our soldiers I ask you to strengthen them for the war they have to fight today. Give them favor with the residents of this city. Use these people as allies for our men and women to escape all harm in Jesus name.

Thank you Father for all the prayer warriors here praying for Iraq and the Iraqi’s. BLESS THEM FATHER, and continully bless them in their coming and in their going. Guard them with there Angels Father, and bring peace and prosperity into their lives.

    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 Lord, and help his weakness to become Your strength 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, protect Prime Minster al-Maliki 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. 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 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

    Loretta Worthy Says:

    Father, We lift up all the people in leadership and pray for their protection. We plead the Blood of Jesus over them, spirit, soul and body. We pull down strongholds that would corrupt their thinking and we call forth Godly wisdom to rise up in their hearts and minds. We ask for special protection and angels to guard the minds and understanding of leaders to keep them from perverse ideologies and evil agendas. Those in leadership have thoughts and actions that will be positive and progressive actions for their nation and their people. All detrimental thoughts and actions are cast aside forever. Leaders have the mind of Christ to build up and not tear down. We declare it is so in the authoritty of Jesus.

    Father, We thank you for Prime Minister
    al-Maliki’s recent encouraging speech where he was quoted as declaring, “National reconciliation efforts have succeeded in Iraq and the Iraqis have once again become loving brothers.”(AP)
    We pray that his declaration would be true and that You would bless him with wisdom, direction and good health as he leads the people of Iraq.

    Nancy Says:

    Lord God, You are God of love and mercy, Your compassion is over all your people in Bagdad and Agfanistan. Suicide bombers have been so deceived by those they serve. Supress the evil ones so that their plans will not be able to be carried out. Help them to see 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. You do all things well and You have never failed on any of Your promises.
    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 all the soldiers and police troops father, and give them strength and peace of mind. Oh Lord, come to their aid, be their defense, hear their cries and render Your judgment on their behalf. Reveal Yourself to them and be their Rock and their fortress. Protect them from the snares of the fowler. Let no harm draw near them and be their deliverer and let no evil befall them. Wrap Your loving arms around them and give them faith and grace that only You can give. We pray that Your will be done unto them, asking You to intervene, asking You to uproot the wicked, to expose every evil schemes and overcome satan`s strategies for heaven to intervene in Jesus Name. Amen and Amen.

    Dottie Says:

    Dear Father we have heard of more deaths today in Iraq. We beseech you oh Lord to protect the citizens of Iraq. The evil ones are plotting with their fellow man who are not even able to make the right decisions. They are using their own people to commit these crimes against their fellow citizens. Bind the enemy Lord Jesus and confuse their thoughts. Watch over the leaders who are trying to bring order to Iraq. Protect Prime Minister al- Maliki and all the leaders who are working for peace. Hear our prayers Lord we pray in your name. Amen

    dolores kulik Says:

    Lord Jesus, the news of two female suicide bombers destroying 51 lives in Baghdad saddens me deeply tonight. Show us what we need to do to have a breakthrough in this city. Father, will it ever end? Your psalms state that the ways of the wicked are an abomination unto You Lord, and that their day is coming. When, God when? Forgive us if we have been neglectful in any way. We ask for mercy/grace/boldness on all Your intercessors all over the world tonight Father, esp. those on this BPP site. Thank You Lord Jesus for making this site known to Your saints all over the world, and thank You for saving the people of Sadr City and Baghdad and their leaders/police/innocent families. Bless them with Your protecting angels Father, in Jesus name, I pray….
