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 Heavenly Father:
    Thank You for hearing the prayers of the Saints in this BPP. We are so grateful for answered prayer that comes in continually without fail.
    Praise G-d for answered prayer.

    Please protect our Soldiers while they sleep. Please go before them, make the crooked places straight and remove the snares of death along their path. Let their path be cleared out before they put their foot down.
    This is our major prayer today Lord, that you clear the path for our Soldiers and be their rear guard while you go before them.

    Blessed be Your Holy Name, O Lord Most High! May peace and healing come to Baghdad and Iraq. Dear Merciful Father in Heaven, please build up and protect wise and godly leaders in Iraq who will put their hands willingly to the task of restoring safety to that land and well-being to its citizens. I thank You that You are able, and I believe willing, to do this, and You have called us to pray for leaders everywhere “that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence”(1 Tim. 2:2). I pray for the safety of the leaders You have appointed in Iraq and for the healing of that land. In Jesus’ Precious Name. Amen.

    Heavenly Father, such despair in the world. People trying to come up with their own solutions to make this a better world. Others rest on religion to justify wrong actions. Oh, Holy One, our hope is in You, Lord Jesus! Man left to his own devices will only fail. How we need You. How Baghdad, Iraq and all the nations of the world need to come to You, our Rock and our Salvation. Lord, protect the leaders in Iraq who are striving to work for the good of the people, to bring freedom and justice to the land. Bind the hand of the enemy over this region and release Your Holy Spirit to touch the inhabitants of this land. Let Your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven here in this land and let it overflow to the areas around it. Let it be by Your Spirit, oh Father, so that man can not boast of his own labors. May You be glorified and exhalted in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

    Dear Father God,
    I pray for the leaders in all of Iraq. The leaders that have the vision of peace and prosperity. The goals of success for everyone in Iraq that try to enforce the new rule, but by Your hand, will enforce. Give this vision to all the people. Including the leaders of the worst madmen. The destruction of death and hate has been ignited by the evil hearts of mankind. Giving birth to confusion and despair. Rot and War.
    Only You God are able to stand up against this force and eradicate the evil that exists. Only You Father, will do this to the very depths of evil hearts and souls.
    Zephaniah 3:17 & 20 is Your Battle Cry.
    Praise Be to God. Your Will be done. The whole earth belongs to You.

Heavenly Father, protect Prime Minster al-Maliki and his fellow leaders FROM ALL HARM. Father, protyect al Sadr from all harm that he can show forTH YOUR LOVE FOR ALL MANKIND, AND TO USE THIS MAN MIGHTLY FOR YOUR KINGDOM. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit please hover over Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Middle East at this time and season.

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.

    Father, You told Jeremiah, “Behold, I am the God of all flesh; is there anything too hard for me?” No, there is nothing too hard for You. Even men’s hearts will bow to Your lordship, if You ordain it. We stand in the gap and make up the hedge for the leaders of Iraq today, asking that You would have mercy upon them, reveal Yourself to them, and grant them eternal life in Yeshua, for their good, for the good of the people, and for Your glory. In Jesus’ name I pray.

    Father, We lift up those in leadership in Baghdad and in other areas of Iraq and especially Prime Minister Al Maliki and we pray protection for them physically, mentally and spiritually. We command all evil and unrighteous assignments against these people to be aborted and totally reversed, returning upon the perpetrators. We claim their deliverance from all perverted and ungodly religious spirits and perverted and ungodly political spirits. We claim clear air around them, so they can see and hear Godly direction, recognise truth and make rational and wise decisions. We call forth truth, honesty and integrity into all areas of leadership. All things repugnant to God are removed quickly. In Jesus’ Name–Amen!

    Heavenly Father,

    You are the sovereign ruler over all the earth. I draw Your attention to Baghdad, Iraq and all those who are in leadership roles working for peace within the city and country. Bless them with Your hand of protection wrapping around them to carry them out of harm’s way. Please give them divine guidance as to what to do next. Put your favor upon all their efforts to do good in the land. Please bring saving knowledge of Jesus into the minds and hearts of the leaders so they can share that with all the citizens. Please provide Bibles to all who are open to hearing the gospel. I pray many will fall in love with Jesus, their Savior. Let them put aside idols and other religions that are dead and are of no good for them. Thank You God for all the wonders You will accomplish in Baghdad this day. May Your will be done. Please, God, peace today in Baghdad, through Jesus, Amen.

I ask that You touch the hearts of the enemy so they will understand that violence is not the way to live, if it is Your will, Lord.

    Blessed be Your name Father. We pray with a Christian hearts for these people. The kind of heart Jesus had for people. One that cares, helps, heals, hopes, and hurts over those that suffer. Jesus has compassion and in all he did and demonstrated to us then and now is how we try to be or should try to be. So being “Christ-like” people, we pray with all our hearts, for these people of Iraq and that entire region to receive Your glory and grace. Please keep them covered with Your protection. Please keep the leaders and their families safe. Jesus please come to them and show them the way, what to do, the right decisions, how to build a strong loyal army, a unified country, a fair for all system, a good economy, how to take care of the people- all the people. But most of how to introduce You and truths that they’ve not known before. Bless the leaders with the sight of You and Your words. I Pray this in Your mighty name, Amen p.s. I love you.

    Father, thank you for your creation. Thank you for sending Jesus that we might have life and have it more abundantly. The more we see and hear of this world, the more we are convinced that Jesus is the answer. We lift our hearts, minds and souls to you today the author and finisher of our faith. We bring the people of Baghdad before your throne today. We bring the leaders of Iraq before you today. We ask for guidance for the leaders of the military. Our troops are in danger each and every day. We pray for their safety that you would keep their feet from falling. We pray against the stronghold of a false religion that is so embedded in the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people. We say no! no! to the demons and evil spirits that control these people. We cry Abba, Father. In Jesus name I pray.
