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.

    Lord, you say in your Word, “Suffer the children to come unto me for such is the kingdom of heaven.” Lord, we ask that you would protect the children of Baghdad, the children of Iraq, Afghanastan, Pakistan, and Israel. Lord, we pray that the children would be allowed to come unto you. Lord, we pray that you would reach the children with your love and your great gift of eternal life. Lord, we pray that you would loose the spirit of adoption on the children of Iraq and they would be able to call you “Abba, Father”. Lord, we pray that you would have mercy on these innocents. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

    Our Father and our God:
    We thank you and Praise you for all the benefits that you “load” us with daily.
    Your mercies are renewed every morning.
    Weeping may last for the night, but JOY always comes in the Morning because of the many blessings and new creations you have prepared for us while we slept.
    Jesus, please have compassion on the weak and suffering innocents of Iraq.
    Your eyes are too pure to see wickedness for long. You will speedily judge the evil doer and root him out of the land.
    Please undertake and oversee the innocents, which I feel includes our US Soldiers, in Iraq and Afghanistan. They are there under orders only.
    But they are there for good only also.
    Undertake for them all Dear Lord, seek and save and heal and comfort today, tonight and tomorrow.
    Thank you Lord. Jesus’ Name, amen.

Let the troops seek out the enemy and stop their evil actions before they can occur. I pray for peace for this city and all of Iraq, the Middle East and all of the world. Our world needs Jesus Christ and I pray that more hearts will open up to the Gospel. I pray for Christian troops to be witnesses to others in their units and also the civilians they come in contact with.

    Dear Loving Heavenly Father, while reading Psalm 11 in my devotions today I thought it might truly apply to Your suffering church in Iraq, and in other nations of that part of the world. I would like to pray on behalf of Your people this Word written more than 2500 years ago. It is just as true and relevant today:

    In the LORD I put my trust;
    How can you say to my soul,
    “Flee as a bird to your mountain?”
    For look! The wicked bend their bow,
    They make ready their arrow on the string,
    That they may shoot secretly at the upright in heart.
    If the foundations are destroyed,
    What can the righteous do?

    The LORD is in His holy temple,
    The LORD’s throne is in heaven;
    His eyes behold,
    His eyelids test the sons of men,
    The LORD tests the righteous,
    But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates.
    Upon the wicked He will rain coals;
    Fire and brimstone and a burning wind
    Shall be the portion of their cup.

    For the LORD is righteous,
    He loves righteousness;
    His countenance beholds the upright. (Psalm 11)

    Heavenly Father, may Your people take courage today in knowning that You see all things, and You will reward the violent ones according to their deeds and the stubbornness of their unloving hearts, and the needy ones according to Your great compassion. May they find Your Holy Spirit’s help to maintain their confidence in You and to not lose courage. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Lord, you are the giver of life and breath and eternal life. You gave us a commission to go into all the world and preach the gospel. It is my prayer today that the gospel will be taught in all of Iraq and Afghanistan. Let those who have never heard hear. As the song of Fanny Crosby says, “rescue the perishing, care for the dying”. Those who don’t know you are dying in sin and darkness so we call upon you to send the Holy Spirit today. In the name of Jesus, I pray.

    Oh, Lord, our heavenly Father, I agree and thank You for the prayers here of my sisters in Christ and all those who visit here! Protect our troops, our military who sacrifice so much, and the innocent civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hide them in Your shadow! Find a way to reach those who reject You. Meet them where they are at and be relentless to reach them until they believe in You! Cover the meeting of our president and middle east leaders with Your presence and give them wisdom. Convict where needed so that hearts will be turned toward You and wrongs will be confessed. I pray, Father, in the name of Your precious Son, Jesus. Amen.

Set captives free with truth, light, and grace. Hide our troops and allies and innocent civilians in the Shadow of the Almighty.

    Shine down Your Glory upon us, O Lord.

    Kyle Says:

    Father, we come to crying “Abba” because – and only because – of you son, whom you sent as our atoning sacrifice. LORD, we plead the blood of Jesus over all those who are oppressed, in poverty, under violent regimes, and all who need to be lifted from the miry clay.

    In the name of Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit, who raised Christ from the dead, we halt the enemy in his tracks and declare, “Our Father is victorious. He has already crushed your head. His children are princes and princesses in his kingdom and not permitted to be oppressed. So, be gone!”

    Father, you are so good. We love you and commit all things to your hand, and your judgment, which is truly flawless. And, it’s in Christ’s name we’re able to pray. Amen.
