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.

    Heavenly Father,

    You are a shield for those who need protection. There are many innocent citizens in Baghdad who do not live securely day by day for they fear oppression as they have known in the past. They fear the terrorists who have wanted to rule over them and their land. Lord, I call upon You today to be a steady and sure shield for them so that they know no harm. Please protect the good troops and police who stand guard looking out for their interests. The world needs each and everyone of them working diligently in Iraq to hold the peace at the level to which it has been established by the forces working there for good. Lives have been sacrificed to ensure the people will know freedom from oppression. Please, Lord, do not let the past lives and efforts to have been in vain. Bless them and let them know of Your protective presence this day and every day. Do not let the enemies stand and grow stronger with time passing. Deflate their ideas of how to destroy the peace. I pray in the name of Jesus, Amen

    Heavenly Father, thank You for Your love and compassion on us and especially those who are in need. Today we lift up the city of Haifa, praying for those in need there. You know them. Be with the men, women and children, keep them from harm. Be with the innocent, giving them peace, hope and joy in the new life You are providing them. Be with our Military, and those working to establish a democratic and free Haifa. Expose and deliver those evil people who would seek evil deeds, keep them confuse and confounded, cause fear to fill them and stop them from their plots. We praise You and thank You. We can do all things through Jesus Christ and we lift our prayers to You with thanksgiving and praise, in His name.Amen

    Lord, you are the only answer for this world today. As human beings, we don’t fully understand the death and destruction and human suffering around us in this world, but we know who made this day and we know who created this world and we know who is in charge. We know Satan has been unleashed for a season, but ultimately, you have dominion over him. We pray against the darkness and evil that we see in Afghanistan and Iraq. We pray against men who want power to control what people believe and what people think. We pray against men who control women by force. We lift our hearts to you to change the hearts of these men. Give them the opportunity to know Christ. Please have mercy and compassion for the men, women and children in these countries who want to live in peace and give them the opportunity to hear the “good news of the Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.

    Father, Gracious and Glorious Triune God, Blessed Three in One, I come before You asking for forgiveness for not praying as often as I could for the widows and orphans of this war. Though I may occasionally forget them, You NEVER forget the suffering vulnerable ones. You are always their Comforter, and Provider, and Protector. Make Your powerful presence known to them today, Lord, Jehovah Shamma, the God Who is there. Cause them to come unto You and find rest. I ask this, Father, for the widows and orphans in Baghdad, Iraq, among the citizens, and for those among the military, police, and volunteers of all nations who are stationed there. Reveal Yourself to them as their Strong Tower – they can run into You and be safe! In Jesus name I pray, 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.
