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!

    Blessed Lord, I pray that You will raise up strong and God-fearing fathers for the families in Iraq, men who will lovingly and faithfully husband their wives, and wisely lead, train and instruct their children in the things of God. May the fathers of today be able to nurture the wise and God-fearing leaders of the future in Iraq. I pray You will also keep fathers safe from harm and help them to have insight into how best to guard their families from anything that might rise up against them.

    For soldiers who are fathers and are serving in any war-torn nation today, Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that You will preserve them and help them. Please give great wisdom and insight to their commanders. May there be ample supports and helps in place for those returning from active combat who have seen and experienced things that have the potential to deeply trouble their minds and emotions. Please support and give strength and patience to their wives and families to know that these men might need time to rest and recover from the sights and sounds and dangers that surrounded them in a time and place of war. May we all be mindful of those who have served sacrificially to make the world a safer place and to consider and pray for their needs and the needs of their families. Please forgive us that we have often neglected and failed to do so. May You make a great testimony to Yourself and Your goodness by working in and through these men and their families. Thank You, Dear Lord, for hearing and for answering our prayers, and indeed, for even teaching us how we ought to pray. Thank You. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Father God, We ask for your holy angels to surround Joshua now. He left for his third tour in Iraq. He leaves behind a wife and two young sons. He was shot on one of his other tours, but recuperated. Keep that experience from negatively effecting his response on the battle-field. Comfort his wife and children, and help them to rest in You! Speak to other fathers in Iraq and Afghanistan, and show them that you love them. Show them the sacrifice You gave of Your Son Jesus Christ for them! Bring each one to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Amen!!

    Dear Lord:
    The Family is the first Institution that You created in the Garden of Eden.
    It was Your Divine creation, Man and woman with subsequent offspring. A perfect idea for multipying and filling the earth with these individual units of society.
    Like everything else after the Fall of Man, the Family has been suffering ever since.
    Lord, it takes devotion, courage, self sacrifice, hard work and lots of watchful care to be the leader of a Family today.
    The Fathers in Iraq and Afghanistan are fighting DOUBLEY hard to protect AND provide for their families so far away at home. (Mothers too in the same capacity!)
    So Lord, with this sacred bond of Fatherhood endangered daily, what can we do but turn wholeheartedly to You for ALL their needs – which are so many.
    You know each and every need and you love Families and love to help. Please be the God of Families Today and send Angels from on High to do the mighty work required.
    Lives are at stake. Children and wives wait expectantly.
    So please pour out Your Mercy and Provision, Your Intervention, Your Salvation and Your Love. With You these US Soldiers of ours can do valiantly.
    Thank you Lord, in Jesus Name we pray, Amen

    Father, You are our Priority. Help us to always keep You and Your Ways as our Priority. We ask that You bless those whose mind is stayed on Thee. Father we ask that You put a hedge around our servicemen and women today that no harm befall them. Father, they are on dangerous ground in the midst of enemies. Give them victory, protection, wise leadership. Give them energy, make them alert, and give them miracles if necessary. Father, let not one single life or limb be hurt in any way. Father, cease the fighting. And give the people of Iraq and Afghanistan protection as well as they attempt to democratize their country. We pray for them, our allies, the Israeli troops, and those who yearn for peace. Come against those leaders who would lead our country away from You. Help us to stand up against an ungodly government anywhere, even if it is America. We ask these things in Your Will and in the Name of Jesus, Amen

    Father, I ask that you bless the fathers, mothers and children in Iraq today, the innocent. Bless them abundantly and keep them from the wicked and extremely evil, not just Satan, but the terrorists who want death to all who oppose their way of thinking. I also ask that you protect our soldiers from terrorist attacks, snipers, bullets and bombs, and keep them away from satan and his demons. Keep them from being harmed, maimed, injured and killed today. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen

    M. Thompson Says:

    Dear Lord:
    Please keep our US Soldiers out of the hands of the wicked.
    Please give favor to the US Soldier held captive now by the Taliban in Afghanistan.

    Please let them release him to show that they are humane and this would cause a ripple effect of kindness and the wish to arbitrate peacefully.
    It would touch the heart of American Soldiers there, abroad and at home if they would release him with words they wish to release also. The whole world would listen to their requests.

    Mercy is a gift that all the world instinctively approves of wholeheartedly.
    Dear Lord, You are the eternal Father. You masterminded everything and everyone. Then you gave an unexpressable gift…free will.

    Please move upon the US fathers to take their responsibilities very seriously and to guide their own families and the families they see in their outposts…..to safety and to Jesus.
    That means safe passage through this world AND THE NEXT.
    Thank you Lord and it is in Jesus’ covering that we make these petitions today. Amen

    Lord, you sent your own son to be the redemption of mankind. Your grace and mercy extend to all men everywhere. You are the only true and living God who promised to redeem us from our sins. We ask today that your redeeming love be made known throughout the whole world. We pray for the men of Iraq and Afghanistan who are bowed down and burdened with so many rules and regulations through a religion that requires them to work for their salvation and to die for salvation. Send the Holy Spirit to call them in dreams and visions to recognize you and Jesus, the Son. In the name of Jesus, I pray.

    humbled at Your love and care for us. Today we lift up the city of Adhamiya and our Military who are striving to bring about peace and security for the people who live there.
