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!

    Lover of Truth Says:

    Our Gracious and Loving Heavenly Father: Hallowed be Your Name, the Name above all names. We honor You and worship You. We thank You for all You are doing in Iraq and Afganistan.
    Lord, this is the Islamic holiday of Ramadan and we pray there will be no violence or death during this celebration. We pray You would hold in abeyance the principalities and powers over this holiday and over the radical Islamic religion. We pray that this year’s celebration of Ramadan would result in the greatest number of salvations into the Kingdom of God of any period in history. We pray that Iesu or Jesus would visit them in extraordinarily divine ways. We ask that the supernatural realm of You Father God would open up to them. We pray for hard-core terrorists to tremble before a holy and just God. We pray for the schemes of the enemy to be spoiled so his captives would be released.
    We thank you for the positive report of General Petraus and the favor You gave him with the American people. We thank You, O Lord for victory in Iraq and for the Iraqi people. May You receive all the glory and honor O Lord of hosts. In Jesus’ Name Amen & Amen

    Dearest Father God,
    You are our Heavenly Father, a Shelter over Your
    people. Reveal Yourself to those who do not know
    You as the One and Only True God. Convict the
    terrorists of the error of their ways; and where it
    was not modeled for them by their earthly fathers,
    we pray that You, Father God, would teach them Your ways so they may learn to walk in Your Truth.
    Forgive us all, Oh Lord, and give us humble and
    repentant hearts – hearts open to Your calling.
    May every plan of the enemies be uncovered, revealed, thwarted, and utterly destroyed by the power of Your Holy Spirit working through those military and security forces which are in place
    to bring freedom to this region (Haifa, and all
    of the surrounding areas)! May every plan of Yours
    for all of Iraq including Haifa, Baghdad, Dawrah,
    Anbar province, Jichan and Ghizlayat be put into
    mighty mighty force by the power of Your Outstretched Arm! Send Your mighty warring angels of heaven to push back every evil man dwelling there and to uncover and destroy their evil schemes. We give You all the glory and the honor and the praise for bringing this to pass! You are the God of the Impossible and nothing is too difficult for You!
    You are the God of Miracles and Your love and Your mercy endure forever and ever! Amen.

    Ruth Nunn Says:

    Father, protect the lives of the fathers of this land who desire peace for their children. Protect the lives of those who are not fathers yet but will be. You have given them children and the fact that they are fathers means that they protect and provide for others who cannot do so for themselves. Protect the older fathers who are looked to for wisdom. We trust You with all their lives. As a Father they are special in Your heart.

    Jean Says:

    Dear Father in Heaven, You are the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and earth. I am certain, based on Your faithful Word, that it is not Your will for people whom You have created to take the lives of others into their own hands for the sake of some ideology or for political gain. Life is precious in Your sight and it is not Your will that any should perish, but that all should come to knowledge of repentance. You alone, are God. Yet the people of Baghdad and of Iraq have been held captive by some who think it is a light and easy thing to kill and to destroy. They believe that it is as easy to kill as it is to have the power to do so. I pray that You will move in today for the safety of many who have been held hostage to this violence. Please undertake for the needy and the oppressed and may the wicked fall into snares of their own making. May those who have been deceived into perpetuating such destruction be brought to repentance and to the knowledge of the truth. May it be Your will that is done in Baghdad today. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    Lois Says:

    Hello Heavenly Father, here I am coming before you and your throne to tell you thank you for all the wonderful things you have done for me and for all my brothers and sisters in the Kingdom of God. This is another day that shows forth all the beauty only you can create and bless us with.

    Father, I ask that you would PROTECT ALL THE FATHERS in Iraq and other countries in the Middle East. Place your protective around them and their families that no harm BY the enemy can hurt them. Lord God I ask that all the evil men in Afghanistan and Iraq be stopped in their tracks. Block all their plans and have all of their weapons be malfunctioned and the bombs become duds. May the Holy Spirit bring forth Your News of a New Life, and allow them to receive dreams and visions of your plans and destiny for them. May the dreams and visions change their thinking and heart toward You Heavenly Father. BLESS OUR BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN IN THAT LAND FIGHTING AND SACRIFICING THEIR LIVES FOR FREEDOM IN IRAQ AND AGAINST THE TERRORIST ENTERING AGAIN ON OUR LAND. Place a protectie hedge around them Lord as their fortress, shield, strong tower, and banner. Let them have peace in their mind about their families and provide ALL THE NEEDS OF OUR TROOPS. Let your love and glory fall down upon Iraq and bring Iraq to your plans and destiny along with THE HOPE only You can bring with new prosperity. In the name of Jesus I pray and say Thank you for answering all our prayers. Amen

    Thank you Holy Spirit for Giving Us All What We Need. For You give us all things that do not block the way to Light. And what else could we need? Thank you, for in time, you give us all the things that we need have, and will renew them as long as we have need of them. Amen.

    Dear Lord, This past weekend, as we attended my husband’s 50th USMC Platoon Reunion, it broke my heart as we watched the young Marines going through their drills at Parris Island. I pray that these men, and all service men and women, will never have to be sent to Iraq. May all the issues be resolved and may there be peace as you hold all service men and their families in the palm of Your hands. You are our loving and faithful Father. We pray that everyone will turn to you for your uplifting strength and power. Praise be to God.

    And Lord God, I ask that you keep the professional contractors safe. They are mostly former special forces and I ask that you give them wisdom and judgement to do their jobs to protect life there and to keep everyone safe. Please surround them like a shield and give them favor with the local people. In your wonderful mighty name!

    Matt (USMC/Iraq) Says:

    Lord Jesus, Thank you for these Prayer Warriors that faithfully pray for the people of Iraq. Right now the people here are observing Ramadan and they are fasting from Sun-up to Sun-down and they are grumpy and cranky. They are supposed to be focusing on god but they are only seeing a false religion and are led astray by a different law that cannot save. They are working for a corruptable prize–deceived into false religion. They beleive that you were a great prophet but they see no need for a your atoning death or resurection nor do they believe it. I pray that through this time of fasting that they would have visions of you and see the price you paid for them. That they would see you as you truly are and what you did for them–for us. They would see their need for a Savior and that this Ramadan, this day, would be their day of Salvation. I pray for troops who are unafraid to share the gospel with their fellow comrades and with the Iraqis. Lord I pray for prayer warriors to rise up accros America. Don’t abandon these people. I can’t turn my back on these people. Lord, I know you will not turn your back on these people. Amen

    Sherrill Says:

    Father, You have called us to look to You for our needs. We need protection and peace today for our brothers and sisters in harm’s way. We pray protection and salvation today for our troops all over the world who are serving to protect our land, we pray for the Iraqi police, our allies, the police and firemen of the USA – all those who look to You, Lord. Thank You, Lord, that it is done in the precious Name of Jesus, Amen.

    RW Says:

    thank you Father for answering our prayers. You are our Mighty God and we know that you can and will prevail. Protect the innocent families, give peace and comfort to the grieving, guidance to the leaders. May your Holy spirit be free to run thru the land of Iraq so that many will hear you knocking a the door of their hearts and that they will open the door and allow you come in to dwell with them. Allow the chaplains (Daniel) to bring your word to the many that their lives touch. May they be bold in sharing your word and allow the Holy Spirit to speak thru them. Protect our service men and women and bring them safely back to their families. thwart the evil plans of the evil ones. May the Spirit of God reign in the Land of Iraq today. Miracles do happen and you are a God of Miracles. Only you can provide this miracle and we trust you to do your will. thank you Father, In the name of Jesus Christ our Savior, AMEN

    We Thank you Father that you provide for all our needs according to your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. You ask and stand in agreement for your divine provision to the families of all here in the states that may ahve need and have fathers over seas that cannot provide for their needs because they are providing protection and freedom for us. Super Naturally have men give to those needs pressed down, shaken together, and running over. We thank you for this and all things in The Name of Jesus.

    Donna in Chattanooga Says:

    Father God,

    You are the ultimate Father. Thank You for the example of sacrifice & forgiveness; of longsuffering & patience in the midst of our sins. Father, place Your hand on the fathers in Iraq today – whether Iraqi or American or multi-nationals. Lord give them strength & a willingness to accept the role of responsibility which You have given them. Protect them Father from dangers – both physical & spiritual. Give them Your eyes to see. Protect their hearts from fear & hatred. Open their eyes & hearts to You that they may embrace You as Lord & Savior. May they feel Your presence & the prayers today for them – & let them know they are not alone.
    In Jesus Holy Name, Amen

    Judith Connell, Greenbank, On., Canada Says:

    People of this modern world really do not understand the role of FATHER as given by our Lord. Every father is to mirror our Father in Heaven in every way. Of course, we are all human and therefore fallible which our Father in Heaven knows very well but He is there to offer Himself by having given His son to be in our hearts. This prayer for today is so important because it draws our attention to what really matters – the family unit and the need to keep it together. Insurgents have killed so many fathers by targeting soldiers as well as the Iraqi police force. It is almost overwhelming but when pray directly for the fathers then we are acknowledging that our dear Lord will stop Satan and his demons from interferring with God’s order. We praise You, the Three In One and continue to ask Your blessings for Peace on all the war zones in the world today. Fathers of the world need to see You supernaturally save them in order that they may both serve their families as well as serve their countries as well as serve YOU! Praise to everything You do for all our fathers today.

    Dave Halloran Says:

    Dear Lord, we beg you to intervene in the hearts of the political leaders in Baghdad, that they may set the sectarian differences aside for the good of the people, their people, and find a reconciliation in their minds and hearts to come together as one family. Though they call their God Allah, you are their God, they are your creation, and they cry out as we write, for the wisdom to recognize that God is the God of all, the One who first and foremost teaches love of all. We pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen

    Allan Dvorak Says:

    Our Heavenly Father, You are Holy, and Your ways are far above us. We desire for Your Name to be blessed in all those who cry out for Your salvation today. We thank You for Your great mercies in protecting Your children in Iraq today. We love You ABBA.

    Dottie Says:

    Father we agree that you and only you can guide those who are in harms way. Protect them and bring them through the weeks and months so they may come home to their families. We trust in you completely. Your thoughts are not ours and our thoughts are not yours. Help us to have faith that there will be an end to this turmoil and war. Keep our eyes fixed on you and keep our troops eyes on you. Strenghten their faith and trust in you. May they be witnesses to the unsaved and lead others to you. We pray this in Jesus Name. Amen

    Pat Eubank Says:

    Lord, we ask you for salvation of all who live in this area. That you give dreams to those who you choose. Holy Spirit prod,remind, and speak to all people so they will listen and to feel your gentle touch. Let them dwell in your shadow, and know YOU.
    We pray a hedge of protection around them, and thank you that that powerful Holy Spirit that raised Christ from the dead will work in their lives. In the name of Jesus Christ we thank you. Amen

    Sherrill J. Says:

    Shabbot Shalom Adonai, Thank you for this day, a gift of rest. I pray that this may be a day of peace and rest in Iraq with no killing, injuries or other tragedies. Peace to the fathers, mothers, and children there. Peace to the troops defending them. Peace to the families who wait for their loved ones to return from the war torn country of Iraq.
    We pray for the day that Your Kingdom rules here on earth and all wars will cease and all weeping will be over.
    In Your Name I ask this.
