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.

    Jean Says:

    Dear Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for reminding me of Psalm 37 earlier today. It is a great help to remember that You have all things in hand and that ultimately those who trust in You will not be left to fall to the desires of the wicked:

    “The ways of a good man are ordered by the LORD,
    And He delights in his way.
    Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;
    For the LORD upholds him with His hand. . . .
    For the LORD loves justice,
    And does not forsake His saints,
    They are preserved forever;
    But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off.
    The righteous shall inherit the land,
    and dwell in it forever. . . .
    The wicked watches the righteous,
    And seeks to slay him.
    The LORD will not leave him in his hand, . . .
    Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright;
    For the future of that man is peace.
    But the transgressors shall be destroyed together;
    The future of the wicked shall be cut off.” (Psalm 37:23-38)

    Dear Father in Heaven, please help the needy ones of Iraq today to have confidence in You and to have the inner strength to wait for Your deliverance. May they be helped by Your Holy Spirit to realize and to remember that they are precious in Your sight and that You will watch over Your Word to fulfill it. May not one hair of their head fall meaninglessly to the ground, and may these individuals be greatly encouraged with hope and with confidence in Your ways. In Jesus’ Lovely and Holy Name. Amen.

    Bob - Colorado Says:

    Lord – You mentioned “suffer little children to come unto me”. We know You are still calling for them and offering them protection and love. The children are so innocent as to what is going on in this World. Sometimes they are asked or ordered to do something that causes harm and danger to others, but this is not at their doings. Protect them as a mother hen brings her children under her wings. Because some of them are without parents, You have said You would be a father to the fatherless. May this be, and may their hearts be open to Your love and call. Thank You for giving us this assurance that You do care. AMEN

    Dear Lord:
    Please let the cries of the innocent, that includes our US Soldiers crying out to you, day and night.
    Do not turn a deaf ear to their suffering.
    Why should the wicked man prevail?
    He has no fear of the Lord.
    Lord, come and rescue the suffering of Humanity. Please help those today that need you every hour.
    Let their suffering be a point of contact with the Almighty Compasionate God in Heaven: Our Messiah, Jesus Christ.
    In Jesus Name we pray, Amen

    Lord, It is Your word that said ,”I go to prepare a place for you, and if I go I will come again and receive you unto Myself, that where I am there you maybe also. We strongly believe every word You say Lord. That is why I come to You in no other name but the name of Jesus. I put every boy, girl, widow, widower. orphan before you at this time. I ask for Your sweet protection over every one of them. Those who cannot care for themselves Lord I ask for Your provision for them. You promise that You will take care of them always. Mighty God, turn from Heaven,and look down with Your eyes of mercy.
    Allow Your Holy Spirit to convict those who are heartless towards these vulnerable people. Give them a heart of compassion so that as they are mistreated by the heartless one they will forgive them. One day Lord justice will b serve,and all the bad things will b finished with. Again we ask that each of these dear people guardian angel will watch over them as they walk,as they sleep, as they go about their daily business. Help that they will see the love of Christ in the Christians around them,and that they will crave to have the peace that these believers have because of you living in them.
    The enemy of our soul is destroying lives left, right,and centre,but we still believe and will always believe that you are still in charge. You will always b # 1 no matter what, and Lord, it is only a matter of time when you are going to prove Your Kingship. We glorify You now, and say a big thank you for what You have already done for the people of Baghdad,what you are now doing and what You are planning to do in the Powerful and Mighty Name Of Jesus Christ our Soon Coming KING. Amen and Amen.

    M. Thompson Says:

    Dear Lord:
    Thank you that you have a plan for the resolving of all conflict the world over. Thank you that you are speedily unfolding that plan. (The Book of Revelations.)

    It will be so wonderful when the Lion will lay down with the Lamb and young men (and women will no longer learn war.

    In fact they will beat their swords into plowshares and a war economy gives way to an agrarian economy. How wonderful our food will be then!!!

    Until then, we pray for our Soldiers and the innocents that they protect as they ferret out the violent enemy. This is very tricky without prayer maybe impossible. But with our Lord Jesus, it can and will be done. Amen

    Lord, please be ever with our US SOldiers and be a mighty Deliverer and Savior for them. Go before them, be behind them and watch over each step they take.

    You never sleep nor slumber, so as they sleep and slumber, surround them with a shield of safety.
    Thank you for hearing our prayers and answering in the affirmative.
    Be on guard for our Soldiers. Thank you so much!
    We love you Lord Jesus!
    In Jesus High High Name, we pray, amen

    Heavenly Father, today we lift our Military up to You for Your continued protection and safety. We
    remember June 6th, 1944, as You brought freedom to the world through the sacrifice of so many. As we watched the Normandy speeches honoring these sacrifices, and the surviving Veterans, our hearts are so full of knowing Your love for all of the world. We are free today because of those sacrifices, as one Veteran said, Freedom is not Free. Our hearts are full of thankfulness. Today, Father, we face another attack against freedom and peace for the world, not just America. We lift up our Military Troops in Iraq, Afghanistan,
    Africa, Korea and throughout the world. You know our needs before we even lift our voices to you.
    As a very small child during WWII, I grew up in
    San Antonio, my father was in the Navy, Pensacola, Fla and then Corpus Christi, Tx, and my mother worked at Fort Sam Houston in the Arsenal. I remember having to turn off lights for blackouts, we did not go to shelter, we went outside and looked up at the dark sky and stars.
    I was filled with fear and lived afraid that the Japs or Nazi’s were going to get me. I never forgot that fear. My heart is so full of compassion for the people, men, women and children who are living in almost constant fear.Only You know the heartaches and suffering.
    We lift up Sadr City today Father, we pray for the innocents there and pray for their protection and that You protect our Military working there that no weapon formed against them will prosper.
    We pray that You send the Holy Spirit to be with our Military, give them faith, hope, wisdom, knowledge and discernment, guiding them in their efforts to build Sadr City to one of peace and freedom. Let the light of Jesus shine forth from the men and women doing Your will to restore peace. Fill the hearts of the people with calm, hope and peace. Cause them to expose any evil people or plots, and confuse and confound anyone seeking to do harm or evil attack, that they are
    bound. Be with our Military, throughout the world, we plead the 91st Psalm over all of them,
    we ask You to cover them with the Blood fo Jesus for protection and send forth Angels to form hedges surrounding them, protecting them, and cause miracles to bring them close to You. Help them to KNOW THAT THEY KNOW YOU ARE WITH THEM. Give them calm, peace, hope, and strengthen their faith and belief in You, draw them close to You. May the peace of Jesus be with them at all times.
    Be with those who are homesick or lonely, bring people into their lives who will support them and help give them hope and joy. We pray that you will
    intercede with this Terrorists Attacks, cause the
    hatred to diffuse, help our Military to end their
    evil at every turn. Bless and protect our Troops throughout the world, we pray all these things in Jesus name, Amen.

    Father, You are here in the USA, and there in Iraq and Afghanistan, and all over the whole universe. You have created the little ones, and You love them so very much.

    Today, I ask that this beautiful prayer would be extended to the children of the soldiers of all nations. Cause each one to know the Father’s love. Cause each one to be touched by Your Holy Spirit. Cause each one to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and to be saved.

    Please answer the heart cries of the children who are missing their dads and moms in service. Please bind up the broken hearts of the children whose parents have died in the wars. Please help them to not be bitter against You or anyone else.

    Lord, heal the children, I pray; and bring them into a saving knowledge of Your Son. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
