17-Protection for Fathers

Scripture: “Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; protect me from men of violence who plan to trip my feet.” -Psalm 140:4

Prayer: Father, You are the Lord of the impossible. You are the God that knows when we sit down and when we stand up. You know the number of hairs on our head, and nothing escapes Your notice.

muslimfamily.jpgWe come to You in Jesus name and ask for divine protection over the fathers and the households in Baghdad. Lord, we ask right now, that You would intervene on behalf of a father in Baghdad today and that instead of tragedy, there would be deliverance from death.

Father, release help from Your throne to keep the fathers safe so they can protect and provide for their families. Keep these dear people from the hands of the wicked, and protect them from the schemes of violence.

Lord we also lift up the soldiers who are fathers, and ask for a special protection and blessing over them today. Guard them Lord with Your divine protection. Surround them with Your favor like a shield. Guard their going out and their coming in, their rising up and their lying down. You alone are able, and we agree together for this in Jesus name. Amen!

    Father, I know that whatever happens, you will see us through. We have Your Word and You are not man that You should lie nor the son of man that You should repent. Many men and nations have tried to destroy this nation and the nation of Israel, but You have always upheld them. We look to You today for protection for our troops, the nation of Israel, and our allies. Help the leaders to hear Your voice obey Your Word. You are our only hope. In Jesus’ Name, we pray, Amen

    Father of all, You understand the loss of a Son. You understand that there are forces in the heavenlies that desire to kill, steal from, and destroy every person on the planet, and especially the fathers who bear the image of God with the purpose of procreation, protection, and provision.

    Lord, You know the end from the beginning. We don’t know why some die at an early age, and some in old age. But, You know all about it; and we trust You.

    We trust You to protect each living human being until his/her purposes for being on the Earth are accomplished. We trust You, Lord, to protect and to preserve, according to Your plans.

    Please comfort those whose loved ones have given their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan. Grant peace to those whose loved ones are in places of danger. Please protect our President, too, and guide him clearly to do as You would have him to do. In Jesus’ name, I ask, amen.

    Father, we adore you and thank you for being so faithful, loving, and kind. Thank you for your provision in every area of our lives. Forgive us when we grumble and complain and forget how merciful you are to us. May the fathers in Iraq find their provision in You. May they come to know you in an intimate way thru your Son, Yeshua, the Messiah. Pull back the curtain of darkness and let them see the TRUTH. Draw them by your Holy Spirit into salvation and show them how to be good fathers to their own children. AMEN

    Lord, We ask that you hear our prayers today for the fathers who are stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan today. Give them encouragement and blessing today and draw them through the power of your Holy Spirit. We pray also for the fathers of Iraq and Afghanistan. We pray for your Holy Spirit to draw and convict each one of sin in their lives and draw them to you, the only true, and living God. In the name of the Son, Jesus, I pray.

    Father, You are the example of the love of a father for their child. Thank You for that! Thank You for the perfect love You have shown for us, even though we can act as prodigals, even when we don’t deserve it. Bless the fathers in Iraq and Afghanistan, Lord. Give them love for their children and families. Give them the way to provide for their children and families. And especially for our military there who are fathers or fathers-to-be, bring them safely home. Surround them with Your favor as a shield! I pray in the precious name of Your Son, Jesus, Amen.

    FATHER of all fathers, Protector of all, we praise you for the way that you have designed the family to operate, giving us the Family of God as an example. YOU, as our Heavenly Father, are never apart from us, yet because of sin in this world, these earthly fathers are not with the families that you have given to them. Instead of being there physically to guide and comfort they are in a foreign land fighting to preserve the freedoms of their children – and ours! They have sacrificed the comforts of home to put their lives on the line so we can enjoy freedom. Please surround them with your protective shield, Lord, and may they be assured that their Heavenly Father is the One in control, and desires a heart that is submissive to the real COMMANDER IN CHIEF – YOU! Father, I ask your mercies on the Iraqi fathers, too, and may they understand the sacrifice that YOU gave for their eternal freedom.

    PSALM 140:4 — O Lord, keep me out of the hands of the wicked. Preserve me from thoe who are violent, for they are plotting against me.
    PSALM 56:9 — On the very day I call to you for help, my enemies will retreat. This I know; God is on my side.
    PSALM 57:1 — Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy! I look to you for protection. I will hide beneath the shadow of your wings until this violent strom is past. Father, Jesus our Sabvior, may these words be lifted up to you for your will and purpose for the men in Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel, and our soldiers who are fathers. I ask now that You look upon them and give them favor.

    May all of them that are fathers say; I will call on God, for he will rescue me. May they pray for your help and guidance every morning, noon, and night. Help them Holy Spirit to plead aloud in their distress, and know that the Lord hears their voice. Help them Jesus and Holy Spirit to know that YOU will rescues them and keep them safe from the battle waged against them, even though many still oppose them. YOU dear Lord are GOD, and our king forever, and YOU hear us and YOU make us humble. Place a protect hedge of fire around all the fathers LORD. Bring our men & women home safe and with a sound mind that is full of PEACE GIVEN by You. In the name of Jesus I pray and give all the honor and glory to God. Thank you for listening and hearing our prayers lifted up to your throne room. Amen and Amen

May the nation of Iraq be strengthened as You raise up fathers who are devoted to Your Kingdom and filled with Your Spirit to nurture their families.
