6-Protect the Innocent Civilians

Scripture: “Rescue the weak and needy; Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.” -Psalm 82:4

Prayer: Lord, Your name is high above every name that has ever been named. You are exalted high above every created thing, and You rule the universe from Your throne on High.

baghdad_children.jpgYou are a Father to the fatherless, and You watch over the poor and needy. Lord, we ask that You would hear the cries of the people of Baghdad and deliver them from the hand of the wicked. Protect them during this time of uncertainty and rebuilding.

Surround them with Your favor as a shield and keep them safe. Give our troops great compassion and vigilance to keep the families of Baghdad from harm.

Lord, Your heart is near to the widow and the orphan; hear the cries of the oppressed and come to their aid. Break the yoke of violence that rules in that city, and set the people free from fear. Judge the wicked for oppressing the innocent, and deliver the weak out of their hands. In Jesus name, Amen.

    Dear Father,
    We pray for your help and mercy and healing of damaged emotions among the children and people of Iraq and among our soldiers there. Also, we add to this the people of Afghanistan and the soldiers who are there fighting the Taliban. We pray for physical healing of the many in both countries who have been injured by mortars and explosions and for the soldiers who have been wounded. We pray for peace; we pray for your Holy Spirit to move among the people and the troops bringing calm and understanding and a knowledge of Jesus our Savior,
    in whose name we pray. Amen

    Our Lord of Grace & Mercy, We ask that you take care of all the needs of the children in this violent land. Please help the fatherless and motherless children so that they can see your light. Protect the hearts and minds of these little ones so that their souls are not shattered from the evils that prevail around them. We thank you and praise and glorify your holy name. In Jesus we pray, Amen.

    Jean Says:

    Merciful Heavenly Father, throughout Your Word, if we would see it, You have shown Your great heart for those who are often overlooked and undervalued in this world’s system. You have shown in many ways that You care intensely for these needy ones. I believe that this is true in many people’s experiences as well, that You have been with them to help in ways others could not see, when no one else has seemed to care, or even noticed their plight. What is more, You told us, Lord Jesus, that we will give account at the judgment for how we have treated the “least of these” we encounter in this world. I pray today that You would break down the hardness of the oppressors and those who are power hungry in Iraq and cause them to consider the needs of the poor and the weak ones all around them. May there be a great movement of repentance throughout that land and a laying down of arms so that true peace and healing might be found. May it be in Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Dear Heavenly Father,
    We praise You as the body of Christ..and worship You in spirit and in truth and love You…for all that You have done for us.by sending Your only Son Jesus Christ to take upon our sins, die, be buried and just like He said on the 3rd day arise for us…because without His resurrection our faith would be in vain…We we serve an A Living God..not those who are formed from stones, wood, rocks. He can hear, see, feel…and Your hand isn’t too long that it can’t reach out and touch us…So I ask You as we come together as the body of Christ…..to protect Adhamiya. To tear down sectarian violence..to confuse the enemies’ plans…to confuse those insurrents that come into the area to make sport of it…To save lost souls in Jesus name..amen

    Jesus, You asked for the little children to be brought to You, so I bring the children of Baghdad to You in prayer. I ask You to BLESS THEM and MAKE THEM SAFE,STRONG, and HEALTHY. Fill them with Your GRACE and LOVE. Be with them as they grow to maturity and help them to learn the VIRTUES of KINDNESS,PATIENCE and COMPASSION. May their parents, teachers and other adults who have INFLUENCE or AUTHORITY over YOUR little ones, be GOOD EXAMPLES for them.I ask You Lord to let them know the WARMTH and SECURITY of a LOVING FAMILY. May they be BLESSED with many GOOD and VALUABLE friends, and may their KNOWLEDGE of You and their LOVE for YOU grow day by day so they will have a HAPPY and HOLY LIFE, NOW and in ETERNITY. In Jesus I ask these things. You tell us to bring every thing to You in PRAYER, so here I am Lord standing in the GAP for the CHILDREN in Baghdad and I LAY THEM IN YOUR LAP.

    Heavenly Father, I thank you for your faithfulness to all of us (your children), your promises, love, and most of all your New Covenant. Father your OVER ALL LOVE FOR THE CHILDREN is beyond our thoughts. Give the children your protective hedge and keep them safe in your loving arms. Comfort them Lord with food and clothing. SUPPLY THEM FATHER WITH THEIR NEEDS IN THE NAME OF JESUS. Help them Lord to grow up in the love of Jesus and to be able to speak forth your Word. While they may be “poor” in this world make them “rich” in your Word and love. When they think they are “weak” make them “strong” for you are their strength, stong tower, and banner. Bless them Father and let them “SEE THEIR DESTINY AND PLANS” you created them to be before they were born.

    LORD, be the Jehovah Nissi, Jehovah Ralphe, and the Jehovah Rohe to our military forces there in Iraq and Afghanistan. Give them visions and dreams of your love for them and your plans and destiny for them. Give them peace of mind Lord, especially for their families and their every day life and work there in Iraq and Afghanistan. Pour forth your love upon them and all the people of the whole Middle East. In the name of Jesus I pray this and thank you for hearing all our prayers. May they come up to your throne in unity of love, and assign angels to answer all the prayer. Your Kingdom still reigns and grows everyday on earth. Amen and Amen

    Abba Father, you hold the wonderful words of life, words of truth and beauty, faith and duty. Your Holy Word changes me and all those who read it. We bow before your throne and seek your grace and mercy. We ask for hope today for the people of Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan. We ask that the spirit of the living God be poured out over these countries. Erase the darkness that has held these people in bondage and prison all of their lives. Cast down the strongholds that Satan has placed on the lives of these people that imprisons them. We ask for your protection and guidance for the military and police as they protect the people. In the name of Jesus, I pray.

May we create a shield of protection with our prayers that extends over all of our soldiers, the military and civilians of those countries who are longing and fighting for their peace and freedom. We call on You, Lord, for You are our hope – unless You are with us, we stand watch in vain – and we can stand in confidence because You are faithful in Your promises and in Your Word. Let not our troops be harmed, Father! I thank You, I praise You, I love You! In Jesus name, Amen and Amen.

    Father, you said as we dwell in the secret place of the Most High, we shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty, and we pray today for that sanctuary to be extended to those who do not know or call on your name. That same refuge would come and they will know because of our covenant with Yahweh, this grace has been extended and they would see your goodness and repent, and call on your name. Strenghten each one today and Holy Spirit, I pray for your comfort to abide with them.

    Heavenly Lord, our Father, we look to you to provide protection, wisdom, strength, hope and encouragement to all of our troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to those they are serving there. As I read/pray the prayers of others, I stand in agreement with them, and thank Your that our prayers are heading up to heaven, right to Your ear where You hear us. Thank You that You are only a prayer away, only a thought away. How amazing to have such direct contact with You, that You have loved us so to provide us with that through the precious blood of Your Son, Jesus. I also remember a prayer from the other day that stressed our praise to You. That You know what we need before we even ask, and that You desire our praises. Father, that’s what I’m sending now – praise to You for who You are. Praise to You for being Emmanuel, God with us. Streams of praise to You, Father, humbly layed before Your throne in worship to You, along with our requests. We wait in expectation. May Your will be done. In Jesus name I pray these things. Amen and Amen.

    Dear Lord, another day is dawning for our Troops over in Iraq. We all look to You Dear Lord, to see them through another day. Keep them as the apple of Your Eye and keep watch over them and just keep them Lord.
    Please oh Lord, provide all their needs through Your miraculous storehouse. They need so much and we can only look to You for all to be met. We know Your compassion and mercy and faithful provisions will supply their every need. All we have to do is ask believing.
    Lord, round up our Soldiers, keep them close to one another in one accord and let brotherly love knit their hearts together as they help each other through another day.
    Thank You so much for keeping through the night. In Jesus Name Amen

Show Your self to them through those who are fighting on their behalf and reveal to them that they are loved and cared about. Send forth Your ministering and warring angels to draw them close to You and away from the enemy’s power, in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
