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!

    Blessed be Your Father. I pray for the protection of the Iraqi leaders and our military leaders. Protect them from the haters and those who want to stop they progress. Please give them wisdom, vision, and strength. Help them know You and Your plans for them. I pray for leaders in other Muslim nations that they will feel the urgency to work towards peace and move away from the destructive ideology. I pray for Your Holy Spirit to open their eye to see the truth and remove the fear and revenge mentality. I pray for the Americans to choose out next presidential leader with open eyes and vision of our future. Lord I pray for Your intervention in this that the one who is to do YOUR will, will be the obvious right choice that will be good for our nation and the world. In Jesus mighty name I pray in faith, Amen.

    Heavenly Father,

    I pray through Jesus that You would uphold the leaders this day with Your awesome hand of protection. Do not let any come under attack from the enemy. Strengthen them against any physical, mental or spiritual damage from the actions of the enemy. Bless them with new knowledge of Jesus and what He means to their lives. Remember the leaders in a special way today so they all recognize a blessing directly from Your hand. Through Jesus, Amen

    Dear Loving Heavenly Father, I pray still for the healing of Iraq and establishment of peace, justice and order in that land. For this to take place, dear Lord, wise and just leadership is needed. Heavenly Father, You plans will not be thwarted. Help us to trust You and to commit all these things to You in support of those You have chosen to lead that nation out of war and turmoil and into peace. Please strengthen the hands of Your chosen leaders today and grant them courage and divine wisdom to vigorously pursue plans and actions that will lead to peace. As we lift up these leaders in our prayers may they sense Your empowering and step out in action to overcome the evil that stubbornly continues to threaten their homeland. Dear Loving Heavenly Father, as success in battle was found in Moses day when his hands were lifted up in prayer, may this war in Iraq go Your way as we lift up our prayers to Your throne. May it be so in Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Eileen-my son serving in Iraq Says:

    Lord Of Wonders beyond our Galaxy, You are Holy, Oh Most Holy! And yet you concern yourself with us, wretched as we are. You sacrificed your own Son Jesus so that all might have abundant life both now and forever. We turn to You oh Lord for we can do nothing of worth by our own devices. We ask that you would guide and direct Al-Maliki and all the other leaders of Iraq whom You have chosen to govern. Search their hearts and convict of anything that is selfish, fearful, or misguided Lord. Strengthen them for the days that lay ahead, and reveal Your Self to them that they might know Your wondrous Love that makes all things new! I ask this also for all our soldiers both in Iraq and Afghanistan and also for those who seek to do good in these places. I pray for this nation the USA for we have strayed so far from home, and do not know that we are blessed because You have blessed us, and only because of You! Thank you for
    bending Your ear close and hearing our prayers. In Jesus Name. Amen.

    Jeanne Says:

    Holy Father, We are most thankful for the gloriousness of life that you give each and every one of us. Each life is so precious in your eyes, and today we ask that you cover all the peoples, leaders, and soldiers in Iraq from the evil ones ways. We ask that you give all who seek your peace in this country the strength and courage to continue, for we know it is your war, not anyone’s in particular.

    Lord, this is our national day of prayer in the USA, and so I pray not only for the souls who know Jesus throughout all the earth, but especially for those in Iraq. I also pray for all those souls everywhere who are in total darkness that you would shine your beacon of light upon them, so that they can find your loving forgiveness, peace and salvation.

    Father God of all creation, we ask that you guide and direct all thoughts and actions where it comes to warfare. We ask that you direct all the leaders of all the countries throughout the world, all the military leaders, country leaders, county leaders and city leaders. Please bring your wisdom to them all this day.

    Thank you for your forgiveness of our sin. That you are always there for us, we just need to reach our hearts and hands to you to ask for this awesome gift of yours. So, we ask today, that you indeed forgive us of all our sin, the sin of death and destruction, the sin of perversion, the sin of gluttony, the sin of self, the sin of pride – which is the beginning of all our other sin. Please help us all to be rid of our pride, to look up to you for your direction in all our thoughts and deeds.

    Please protect the unborn, for they have no voice of their own. The US has been a child killing field for nearly 40 years now, and we ask that you bring us up out of that wilderness, convicting the hearts of the mothers and fathers who question whether or not they will abort that precious life.

    Thank you for sending your One and only for us to bridge that gap between all mankind.

    In Jesus’ Precious Name – AMEN!

    So, we pray for the righteous plans to go forth.
    Cast the evil plans into disarray and confusion and give no success to the plots of wickedness.
    Dear Lord: Please concentrate on the US Soldiers and how they feel today given the new dangers and threats.
    We know that You are able to deliver from death, hell and the grave.
    Please prepare our Soldiers to meet You then let them release their fear and go forth in Your might with angels escorting them daily.
    We trust our Soldiers into Your Hands. The Blood of Christ over each and every US Soldier today, The Blood of Christ over their families and The Blood of Christ over their finances.

    Abba Father, it is before you we bow as we bring our prayers. Let them rise as incense before your throne. You and you alone deserve all our praise and adoration. It is the blood of the cross that gives us power to come before you. We join with Wayne today and all who pray with us to ask for wisdom and protection over al-Maliki as he makes decisions to lead the country. We pray for wisdom and direction for General Petraeus who has been assigned to lead all the military forces in Iraq and around the globe. Please bring revival of your Holy Spirit to America and restore us to a nation who acknowledges you as Creator and Lord of all. I pray in the name of Jesus.

    Lynn Says:

    Holy and Heavenly Father God, first on this National Day of Prayer, I bring before You our country. There are so many things here that seem to be in such a mess. Were we not to know that ultimately You are in control, I think we would loose hope. But Father, You are in control. We know how the Story ends. There are many good and faithful people here, Lord. Save us. Save our nation. Revive our hearts as only You can. Give us wisdom. Give our leaders wisdom. Give the voters wisdom. Unite us. Stamp out the selfishness that seems to be running rampant. Father, for Iraq we ask also for leaders there to be strong and effective leaders to bring peace and justice to their land. In Afghanistan also. Protect our soldiers as they give so much for us. Command Your angels concerning them, Father. Bring them home safely. We look to You for help! We praise You! We love You! We ask and wait in joyful expectation for Your answer! In Jesus name we pray, Amen and Amen.
