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.

    Loving Heavenly Father, may Your Holy Name be blessed and honored in Baghdad today! May Your will be done there. I know You are compassionate toward the children and all who are needy in this world. Please give grace and wisdom to the leadership of Iraq and the troops who are present to help restore order and stability to protect the most vulnerable members of society and establish an environment of safety. I pray that any whose violent ways and dealings have caused harm or trouble to such little ones will be deeply ashamed and turn from their wicked ways, seeking, instead, to bring help and provision to the needy ones around them. May it be in Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Lord, I just want to thank you so much for all of those who are praying for our troops and issues in Iraq. Bless each and every one for their prayers. Today, we would like to ask you for the hearts of the children. Lord, you say in your word, “Let the children come to me for such is the kingdom of heaven”. And Lord, we ask that there would be a trumpet blast in Zion today that would sound throughout the Middle East. Lord, we pray that there would be a shout in the heavenlies. May all the children hear, may they look up, and may they know that you are God and that there is none other. We declare that you are the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and that you sit on your throne and are Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty — The one who is, the one who was, and the one who is to come. We bow down and worship you and humbly ask for you to rule and reign over this territory — may your kingdom come and your will be done in the Middle East as it is in heaven. In Jesus mighty name we pray, Amen and Amen.

    P.S. And Lord, a special request to watch over my son, Jim. May he know you are with him and may he hear your voice telling him which way to go and to walk in it. Let no weapon formed against him prosper. Fill him with your Spirit and hover over him today in Jesus name I pray, Amen.

    Father, today is the anniversary of D-Day. On that day you helped and intervened in many ways to aid the Allies in their victory to overcome the Nazis. In the same way, we ask today that you sideline the suicide bombers and other insurgents so that safety will reign in Iraq and allow the people to safely praise You and recognize that You are above all.

    Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

    Loretta Worthy Says:

    Father, We lift up the innocent civilians as well as the troops and other law enforcement agencies and leaders in Iraq and we pray protection upon them all. We declare that all violence and destruction aimed at honest peace-tloving citizens and troops will return upon the perpetrators. The bombs, bullets, and all forms of desruction will only harm the perpetrators of evil. All forms of abduction and violence against the troops and citizens is thwarted and ends with the perpetrators being captured and removed from evil activity. Enough is enough. It is time for radical insanity to cease and desist. Islam is dead and will not be revived. The roots are gone and the branches cannot continue. We declare it is so in the authority given us by Jesus.

    Dear Lord:
    Please send your mighty angels to patrol with our Soldiers. Give them a keen mind and keep them alert. Make their eyes like eagle’s eyes, focusing on the right target. Don’t let the enemy catch them unawares.

    And as for sleep, make sure they get enough so they can do their jobs effectively and safely.
    Please have their meals nourishing so they are strong and healthy.

    Please speak softly to our Soldiers and tell them how much You love them and help them every day. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen

    God of wonder and might, we come to the mercy seat today to leave our prayers. You and you alone are worthy of all our praise and adoration. You and you alone can answer our prayers. We bring once again before you the military leaders and troops who are stationed in Iraq. We ask for help in every decision they make. We pray for George Bush as he and his chosen leaders direct this war. We seek your presence there as never before because the enemy comes in like a flood to destroy and kill. He lifts his ugly head through women or children or whoever will do his will. Most of all we pray for Americans to turn to you as never before and pray and seek your face. In the name of Jesus, I pray.

    We worship you and know that nothing goes unseen by you. We know that you will care for the innocent and that the Ruach Ha’kodesh is ever present hovering over and infilling all that cry out to you. May we continue to place the hedge over our troops and those Iraqis/Afghans who are restraining the anti-christ spirit in Iraq and Afghanistan. Go with them in their every step. May they trust in you and not the power of the “horses and chariots”. Make all things to be in your perfect alignment. Bless Israel , Jerusalem, and God bless America! We love you Yeshua and praise you for all you do and for who you are!!

    Genesis 1:26-28 Then God said,”Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
    27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
    28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them,”Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

    Matthew 10:1-2 And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.

    Father, to YOU be the prasie and glory for the Spirit of Christ in our lives today. Father, by YOUR own design, YOU gave man the responsibility to take care of this planet. It was lost once, but YOU sent Your ownly begotton Son to restor it back to the spiirt of man by the work of the cross.

    From the cross, we find our vctory against the wroks of darkness as we stand against the prince of darkness in the spiritual realm. We therefore, we stand in the power of YOUR might and allow the angels to do the warfare for us to bring peace, love, hope and a free will choice to choose Jesus as Lord and Savior. Now, so be it in Jesus Name!!!!

    Sherrill Says:

    Father, we lift our eyes to the hills from whence cometh our help. You are the only One, Lord, who has the power and the answers for this hurting world. Yes, we look to You. Father, we pray the angels cover our soldiers from the top of their head to the soles of their feet. Keep them safe from harm. Protect the Iraqi police and the civilians who want peace. We pray for those in Kosovo and Afghanistan and wherever they may be in harm’s way. And we pray for Israel and Your people, in Jesus’ Name, Amen

    Donna Says:

    Father, I especially ask for protection for the homeless, Fatherless and widowed, which are all near and dear to your heart. For them all, You are the only hope they have, even though they may not even know your Name. I ask for you to give them dreams in the night telling them who You are and how much you love them, like filling them with the salt of Your word so they wake up hungry for Jesus. Protect them from harm. Keep them in the shadow of Your wings so no evil befalls them. You are the only Daddy most of them have. Protect our guys as they toil in the heat, for which we ask a reprieve. Give them the grace and mercy and love to show You to the people in Baghdad even at those time. In Jesus’ Name amen.

    Loretta Worthy Says:

    Father, We lift up the innocent civilians in Iraq and especially in Baghdad and we pray special protection for them and their homes. We ask for angels to surround these innocent civilians and ward off all assignments of harm and evil. We surround them with light to dispel the darkness. We surround them with love to cast out all fear. We surround them with peace and joy to overcome the spirit of radical ideologies and extreme religious error. Father, I declare Your presence and Your glory fills this land and the people who dwell here. We call for Your Spirit to rise up and overflow from each and every person in Iraq. We say Blessed is Iraq for this is a nation whose God is Jehovah. We declare it is so in the authority of Jesus.

    Carolyn-Mother of a soldier Says:

    Heavenly Father, I thank you for this day…I thank you Lord for your hand upon the nation of Iraq…I thank you Lord for your grace and mercy on the oppressed, the fatherless, and the widows. Psalm 64 says and I pray this over the Iraqi people. ” Hear my voice, O God, in my meditation: Preserve the lives of the people of Iraq. Hide them from the secret plots of the wicked. From the rebellion of the workers of iniquity. Who sharpen their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows-bitter words, that they may shoot in secret at the blameless: Suddenly they shoot at him and do not fear. They encourage themselves in an evil matter; they talk of laying snares secretly; they saqy, “Who will see them?” They devise iniquities: “We have perfected a shrewd scheme.” Both the inward thought and the heart of man are deep. But..God shall shoot at them with an arrow: Suddenly they shall be wounded, So He will make them stumble over their own tongue: All who see them shall flee awayl All men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God. For they shall wisely consider His doing. The righteous shall be glad in the Lord,k and trust in Him. And all the upright in heart shall glory……AMEN!
