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 Loving Heavenly Father, we need to pray for mercy for the needy ones of Iraq, especially the children, and especially those children who have been hurt emotionally, physically or spiritually or terrified by the troubles around them, or in any way orphaned. Please give great wisdom to their care-givers and all who have contact with these children to minister to their needs so that as the nation recovers from war these young ones might recover from the hurts and scars and terrors they have experienced. Please also send in compassionate workers to that nation who will draw near to the parents and families to help them all recover from the trauma of war and terror. For those in refugee camps in other nations, I pray that their situation might soon be resolved so that they might soon have a stable home and be able to begin to rebuild their lives. Thank You for those who are already helping the families in those camps. Please give great wisdom concerning the focus and direction of their ministry during this time in which situations change so rapidly. In and through all of this may Your Name be honored and healing take place in and around Iraq. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Father, Your children are well aware of the mess the devil and his children have made of this world, but we know You have overcome the world. We look to You to protect us in the coming upheavals. Father, we pray protection and comfort for our troops and also for the Israeli troops who are defending their nation. Let us and them have a mighty victory over the tyrants who seek to destroy those who yearn for peace. Open the eyes of the biased news media who as usual haven’t a clue. Open the eyes of those who watch the news to see the errors being reported. It’s a lot to ask, but Father, we rely on You. In Jesus’ Name we pray, Amen

    Lord, we pray for those who mourn today in Baghdad and through all Iraq. Lord, many have lost loved ones in this war. Lord, your word says you are a husband to the widow and a father to the fatherless. Lord, we pray that these precious people would not be filled with thoughts of vengeance, bitterness, or rejection. We pray that they would know your love for them — how deep, how wide, and how broad it is. Lord, please send laborers into the harvest so that these people may know that you are God and besides you there is none other. Lord, draw these people unto yourself and heal their land. Protect the innocent people today and Lord, we would even pray your grace and your mercy on those who are bent on doing evil. Bring them to you, Abba. Bring them into the loving arms of their Father in heaven. I cannot imagine what it would be like to have never heard of you, your love, and what you have done for us in Christ Jesus. Abba, please have mercy and send forth your word. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

    And, Lord, we pray these prayers for your people Israel and those in Gaza. Protect the innocents there also. We ask that these peoples would know the truth and that ‘The Truth’ would set them free. Lord of the harvest, we ask you to send forth laborers. In Jesus name again we pray, Amen.

    Merciful Father, Your Son, Who is interceding for us at Your right hand, was once an innocent upon a sin filled earth. He understands exactly how it feels to be hunted and tortured, wounded and crucified.

    Lord Father God, we know that our Great High Priest is beseeching You in prayer along with us. Hear our heart cries, Father, for the innocent. Shelter them under Your wing. Be their strong tower, their rock in a weary land, their shield and their exceeding great reward.

    We choose to trust in You, Lord, with all our heart and lean not unto our own understanding In all our ways we acknowledge You; and You direct our paths. In Jesus’ name, amen.

    Almighty God who created heaven and earth and the sea, we give you all honor and glory and power. You see and know all the ways of man and you know the situation in Iraq. We pray for those who don’t want to accept the peace in Iraq. We pray that they will be outnumbered by those who do. As you give the people free elections, let them vote into power those who seek to bring stability and peace to this country. Also, we pray for peace to reign over Israel and Hamas on this day. Let your healing touch and mercy extend even to Hamas. In the name of Jesus, I pray.

    PSALM 82:3-4—“Give fair judgement to the poor and the orphan; uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute. Rescue the poor and helpless, deliver them from the grasp of evil people. PSALM 9:18 For the needy will not be forgotten forever; the hopes of the poor will not always be crushed. PSALM 10:12 Arise, O LORD! Punish the wicked, O God! Do not forget the helpless! 14b the helpless put their trust in you. You are the defender of orphans. 17. Lord, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will listen to their cries and comfort them. 18. You will bring justice to the orphans and the oppressed; so people can no longer terrify them.

    LORD, I thank you for all your love and faithfulness. I come today before your throne of mercy and grace in humbleiness and ask that you would watch over the needy and poor. I DECLARE Lord, in Jesus’ name that YOU WILL HEAR all the cries of the people in Iraq and Afghanistan. I DECLARE Lord, Iin JESUS’ NAME that YOU WILL DELIVER them from the hands of their enemy. Surround them Lord with your favor and shield them, and KEEP THEM ALL safe today and until this war comes to an end.

    Give to our troops your compassion and vigilance in keeping all the families from harm in Iraq and Afghanistan. I COMMAND that the cries of those oppressed will be heard and you will send aid. I COMMAND that our troops, Afghanis with your help of wisdom and knowledge that they will find the Al-Quida leader Bin-Laden. I COMMAND that the yoke of ALL VIOLENCE that is ruling in the cities of Iraq and Afghanistan to be BROKEN, and the people set free from fall their fears.

    Father, Since you are the same yesterday, today and forever, what you promised to one is a good promise to everyone who seeks your face; therefore, we declare protection over the innocent in Iraq and speak a portion of Isaiah 54 over them: “All your children shall be taught of the LORD and great shall be the peace of your children. You shall be far from oppression, for you shal not fear and from terror, for it shall not come near you. Whoever assembles against you shall fall for your sake. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

    With praise we thank you for those servants of yours in Iraq are focused on you and their eyes shine with your love. May those who are unsaved turn toward Jesus and allow Him to be the author and protector of their faith.
