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.

    Father, we believe that Iraq has a special place in history and in the upcoming battle at the end. We know that you lift up and you tear down to prepare the world for the return of Yeshua. Protect the innocent children from the violence in their world. Draw them by your Spirit through dreams and visions to see that Yeshua loved them enough to die for them and wants them to be part of His eternal Kingdom. Protect them with your Holy Angels, in Jesus’ name. amen

    Dear Father you have said in James 1:27 Religion that God you God accepts as pure and faultless is this:to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. Father I pray that our troops will know this verse and care for the ones in Iraq and Afganistan who are in need. Give them wisdom as they give their lives for our freedom. May they have the peace that passes all understanding that only You can give. Protect them and may they come home safely to their families. I pray in Jesus name. Amen

    Yes, Lord, deliver the oppressed and needy from the hands of the evil one. Reveal Your Son Jesus to them, for they are held in bondage to a false creed. Reveal yourself to them even as you did to Saul who “fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?” (Acts 9:4) Change them into Pauls who will testify to the saving power of Jesus Christ. Thank you for your mercy and love. Thank you that you are the same today, yesterday and forever. Thank you that you never change and there is no shadow of turning with you. Thank you that every good and perfect gift comes from your hand. Be glorified today in Iraq.

    Father, Our Lord, Alpha & Omega, I come to You with a heart full of love and praise.I giave You praise and glory Lord Jesus for all answered prayers today for the innocent people in Iraq.

    For the Glory of Your name & Your will to be done I give forth Your Word in PSALM 121 … “The LORD himself watches over you! The LORD stands beside you as your protective shade. The LORD keeps you from all evil and preserves your life. The LORD keeps watch over you as you come and go both now and forever”. In PSALM 57 we are told to “Cry out to God Most High, to God who will fulfill his purpose for me. HE WILL send help from heaven to save me, rescuing me from those who are out to get me. My god will send forth his UNFAILING LOVE and FAITHFULNESS”. LORD make these words spoken out of Your mouth to come alive over Irsq. Show forth Your love and faithfulness to the children and the innocent people of Iraq. PROTECT and PRESERVE the innocent children and bring forth their destiny and purpose You planned for them. For all the families Lord Jesus give them hope and understanding to know that YOU WILL be there AT ALL TIMES for protection from harm by the evil ones. FULFILL, in the name of Jesus, YOUR PURPOSE and DESTINY for Iraq.

    Surround our troops and the troops of Iraq 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. In Jesus’ name I pray and ALL glory, praise an honor is Yours. Amen

    Oh, Lord, more suicide bombings in Iraq..8 in the past 11 days that targeted hotels, government buildings and pilgrims observing a major Muslim holy day. Father, I intercede and ask for Your power to fall on the leaders of the Shiites and the Sunnis. I pray for unity and respect for one another as a leader that they might come together because their desire for peace is greater than their desire to be proven right. Help those in Iraq, Lord, who this day mourn a loved one. It is to You, Jesus, that I pray. Amen

    Betsy P. Says:

    Father of the fatherless, Your Son said it all when He said, “Let the children come to Me; for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.” May it be so for all of the children in Baghdad, all Iraq, and particularly in Sadr City today.
    Break the power of vengeance in this area of the world, and let there be peace. Vengeance belongs to You, Lord God Almighty, and You will repay.
    We lift the children up to You and ask that You will keep them from the vengeance of others, and from any vengeance coming into their own hearts. Flood them with Your peace and love. Be glorified in our intercessions today in the name of Yeshua. Amen.

    Jean Says:

    Dear Father in Heaven, today’s sample prayer is a good one for Your people in Baghdad, but I would also like to pray it on behalf of those in Northern Iraq who have most recently been under attack because of jihad. Today I was reading about the December bombing campaigns in Northern Iraq, especially in the city of Mosul, and of the number of various churches that were bombed, Assyrian, Coptic and Orthodox. Heavenly Father, this appears to be a campaign to drive believers out of Iraq, or at least to demoralize them during a holiday that is normally one of joy and of goodwill. I thank You for the reports I read of believers being willing to stand firm, and to not be driven from their homes. I pray those same believers will take courage. I pray for the parents of the young child who was killed in one of these bombings, that they would be deeply comforted. I pray that none of the suffering of Your people in Iraq will be overlooked or forgotten, but that You will take all these things that have been intended for evil and use them for good, and for the upbuilding of Your Kingdom. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity;
    And I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
    Examine me, O LORD, and try me;
    Test my mind and my heart.
    For Thy lovingkindness is before my eyes,
    And I have walked in Thy truth.
    I do not sit with deceitful men,
    Nor will I go with pretenders,
    I hate the assembly of evildoers,
    And will not sit with the wicked.
    I shall wash my hands in innocence,
    And I will go about Thine altar, O LORD,
    That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving,
    And declare all Thy wonders.

    O LORD, I love the habitation of Thy house,
    And the place where Thy glory dwells.
    Do not take my soul away along with sinners,
    Nor my life with men of bloodshed,
    In whose hands is a wicked scheme,
    And whose right had is full of bribes.
    But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;
    Redeem me, and be gracious to me.
    My foot stands on a level place;
    In the congregations I shall bless the LORD.
    (Psalm 26)

    Luanne Says:

    Lord, you say in your word that pure religion is to take care of the widows and orphans. Lord, we ask that you would move and have your way in Iraq. Lord, we ask that undefiled and pure religion would be birthed in Iraq. Lord, we ask that you would strengthen your church in Iraq. Lord, we ask that you would pour out your spirit in Iraq. Lord, we pray that you would be lifted up and draw many to yourself. Lord, we ask that you would protect the innocents and comfort all who mourn in Iraq. Lord, we give you the praise and the glory this day. Lord, we look for your return, we look for your coming, and we especially look forward to your redemption of Iraq! And, Lord, we also ask for a special security around our troops this day. Bless each deployed person, their families and loved ones. May those of our troops who don’t know you, come to know you as Lord as Savior as well. It is in Jesus name we pray, Amen and Amen.

    For he will deliver the needy who cry out,the afflicted who have no one to help. He will take pity on the weak and the needy and save the needy from death. He will rescue them from oppression and violence,for precious is their blood in his sight. Ps 72:12-14

    Father, we claim this promise for the innocents in Baghdad and all of Iraq. We praise You for Your love and mercy, as we continue to pray in the powerful name of Jesus. Amen

    Psalm 82: Authorized Version
    Prayer for US Soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq….
    We pray against the local leaders of the people who perpetuate violence, caos and death – instead of protecting and helping the innocent and weak people who look to their leaders for help and answers.
    KJV: Authorized Version

    God standeth in the congregation of the mighty: he judgeth among the gods – (the local leaders as well as their false gods).
    How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked?
    Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
    Deliver the poor and needy – rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
    They know not, neither will they understand: they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. (Earthquakes, severe weather conditions)
    I have said, “Ye are gods; and all of you are the children of the most High.”
    But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
    Arise, O God, judge the earth, for thou shall inherit all nations.
    Thank You Lord for Your Longsuffering and mercy. You give all flesh plenty of time to repent and regroup. But if improvement is not in them You will whet Your Sword…..and they will be gone. Their own ways will rise up against them as a testimony of their guilt and they will not be found. Thank You Lord. May your Word be applied to both Afghanistan and Iraq today on behalf of the justice to our US Soldiers. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.

    Peg Says:

    Father, I build a prayer hedge of protection around these people, and I ask for You to move in and deliver the innocent ones from the evil that is over this land.
    May I sprinkle the blood of Jesus Christ over them as you move through this land. God, you know who is disobedient by choice to do evil. If they won’t submit to you and change their wicked ways, take away their power. Neutralize their plans and bring your power to bear against them. The battle belongs to the Lord. Thank you GOD for hearing our prayers and moving to bring victory in Your Holy Name we pray. AMEN

    Sherrill Says:

    Father, the Message Bible says “God makes His people strong. God gives His people peace.” We receive this strength and peace today and we pray strength and peace for our troops all over the world. We ask that You carry our precious military men and women, carry them like a good shepherd. Warn them of dangers ahead, direct their paths. Encamp the angels around them, each and every one. We pray the enemy will be thwarted in their evil plans. We pray that our country turns back to the True and Living God. Lead us in the way we should go. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We look forward to Your soon return, Jesus. Amen

    M Tebault Says:

    Yes, Lord, I agree with Betsy’s prayer based on Psalm 91. May our troops and the Iraqi troops find shelter in the shadow of your wings. May they take delight in you and follow your pathway which leads to peace. Be with the night watch as they prepare to stand guard tonight. Give them eyes to see and ears to hear anything the enemy has planned for their harm. Grant them your wisdom to counteract all evil plots. Hold them secure in your mighty arms.

  23. 538
    Betsy P. Says:

    Adding my prayer to the day’s intercessions, I ask, please shelter the innocents under the shadow of Your wing, Father; and cause them to trust under Your feathers.

    Psalm 91 in the Living Bible paraphrase: “We live within the shadow of the Almighty, sheltered by the God who is above all gods.
    “This I declare, that He alone is my Refuge, my Place of Safety; He is my God, and I am trusting Him.
    “For He rescues you from every trap, and protects you from the fatal plague.
    “He will shield you with His wings! They will shelter you. His faithful promises are your armor.
    “Now you don’t need to be afraid of the dark any more, nor fear the dangers of the day; not dread the plagues of darkness, nor disasters in the morning.
    “Though a thousand fall at my side, though ten thousand are dying around me, the evil will not touch me.
    “I will see how the wicked are punished but I will not share it.
    “For Jehovah is my Refuge! I choose the God above all gods to shelter me.
    “How then can evil overtake me, or any plague come near?
    “For He orders His angels to protect you wherever you go.
    “They will steady you with their hands to keep you from stumbling against the rocks on the trail.
    “You can safely meet a lion or step on poisonous snakes, yes, even trample them beneath your feet!
    “For the Lord says, ‘Because he loves Me, I will rescue him; I will make him great because he trusts in my name. When he calls on me I will answer; I will be with him in trouble, and rescue him, and honor him.
    “I will satisfy him with a full life and give him my salvation.'”

    All praise, glory, honor, and power be unto You, Lord Father God, Jesus, our Savior, and Holy Spirit, our Comforter. Amen.

    Pia Harrison Says:

    He saves the needy from the sword in their mouth; he saves them from the clutches of the powerful. So the poor have hope, and injustice shuts its mouth. Job 5:15-16

    Father:
    I pray your Word back to You regarging Baghdad and all of Iraq. Thank You for rescuing the innocents from evil men who plot to destroy and kill. Thank You most of all Jesus has paid the price for the people of Iraq and has covered them with His blood. Thank you for extending this covering throughout Iraq.

    May many be drawn to Jesus through the work of the Holy Spirit today. Make Your followers in Iraq bright lights shining with the True Light from Heaven and flavorful salt enhancing the lives of people they meet. Help them to be instruments of Your will for Your kingdom and their country.

    In the mighty name of King Jesus who will rule eternally, Amen
