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, I pray for the people of Iraq and ask for peace to this great nation. I pray for the relief of violence and pray that those who would want to do evil in this nation to be in confusion and feel all alone and will cry out to the living God. I pray they would come to know Jesus as their Lord and savior. I know that you will that none would perish but all come to saving knowledge. Put a hedge of protection around our troops and give them a love for the people of Irag. I pray that this nation will be a nation that Americans will go to to visit as a tourist in the days ahead because there will be peace and fredom in this nation. Father bring about industry and jobs for these people and a government that will serve the people with power that comes from rightousness. In Jesus name I pray.

    Father, as Wayne prayed, “Your heart is near to the widow and orphan…” He probably did not even think that his wife would soon be a widow and his children fatherless. Nor did the men who were killed in the attacks in Baghdad yesterday. WE come to You today proclaiming the Apostle Paul’s words over the Dillard family, as well as over all of the grieving in Baghdad, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of sympathy (pity and mercy) and the God [Who is the Source] of every comfort (consolation and encouragement), Who comforts (consoles and encourages) us in every trouble (calamity and affliction), so that we may also be able to comfort (console and encourage) those who are in any kind of trouble or distress, with the comfort (consolation and encouragement) with which we ourselves are comforted (consoled and encouraged) by God. For just as Christ’s [own] sufferings fall to our lot [as they overflow upon His disciples, and we share and experience them] abundantly, so through Christ comfort (consolation and encouragement) is also [shared and experienced] abundantly by us.” II Corinthians 1:3-5. Enfold the suffering in Your love, Father, is my pray, in Jesus’ name. And I thank You for Your salvation for the citizens of Haifa. Amen.

    Lord, our hearts break as we hear of more bombings in Baghdad and more innocent lives taken. Lord Jesus, have mercy. We pray that you would come and heal this land. Lord, wipe away every tear, comfort those who mourn, and bring your joy into this city. Lord, we pray for those who are responsible for these deadly attacks. Lord, we pray for their souls. We pray that their lives would be transformed by the power of the living God. Lord, you know who they are, you know where they live, you know their innermost being. Open the eyes of their understanding and loose the spirit of adoption upon them.

    Lord, we pray that you would give your divine wisdom and understanding into the leaders and troops of Iraq. Lord, we pray for divine intelligence to prevent future attacks and divine protection for innocent lives.

    Abba Father, Lord Jesus, rescue the perishing, care for the dying; snatch them in pity from sin and the grave; weep o’er the erring one, lift up the fallen, tell them of Jesus, the mighty to save! Rescue the perishing, care for the dying, Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save. It is in Jesus’ holy, mighty name we pray, Amen and Amen.

    Father be our rock and steady ground as we hear and watch the storms. We stand still in prayer with our thoughts and focus on You as the violent storms are whipping and lashing out in the world, we stand in faith on Your word and promises. Father I stand in agreement with the prayer warriors around the world for Your presence, Your protections, Your angels, Your guidance, Your unfailing love, and Your will to be done. Protect the innocent in Iraq, Afghanistan, the region. Protect our troops and guide their every step. Protect the leaderships trying to lead the people to a good future. Please Jesus come to these people, give them Your peace and truth. Protect these people Lord. Bring down the haters, murderers, the leaders of evil intent and haters of peace. Bring them down by Your almighty power and glory and by the will of the people. Rise up strong and wise and caring leaders to stand up and step up. Please bring healing to the ones injured by recent attacks and comfort to those who lost someone they love. I pray that Your word and truth spread like wildfire in this region. In Jesus name I pray in faith, Amen.

    Heavenly Father,

    This prayer for the civilians in Iraq is so timely with the election day upon them. Thank You Abba for the way You work out the synchroncity in timing of events. Lord, I pray that You would put Your hand of blessing upon the Iraqi people and keep them safe from violence during this special time of choosing who will govern in the land. Please halt the plans of any who would do harm. I pray any schemes have been discovered and put to rest. I pray for the safety of the troops and police. Many are praying for the success of the election which is an indication of the permanence of peace enacted by the efforts of the many troops who came into the land previously and sacrificed dearly to give a better life to the people. I pray for the persecuted Christians in the land that they may know Your peace in the midst of what all they go through. Please strengthen them in any ways that they feel weak, or afraid of those who mistreat them. Please take especially good care of the children in the land who get caught up in the actions of the older citizens who sometimes act without considering the harm that is done to the youngest of the land. Thank You Lord for paying attention to the prayers for Baghdad and Iraq today. We look to You alone for the blessing to keep the civilians safe at this time. I pray in the name of Jesus, Amen

    Jean Says:

    Dear Father in Heaven, I agree in prayer in asking for Your help on behalf of the innocent civilians and the families in Iraq. I agree with the request that You would judge the wicked for oppressing the innocent, and may that judgment be seen in the outcome of tomorrow’s elections, for which the Christians in Mosul have suffered so much already at the hand of those who are using violence to try to influence the vote in that area. I pray that all the violence will not bring about the result that the wicked desire. I pray that the authorities will have both the will and the means to protect the innocent in their nation and also to be able to ensure that this vote is free and fair. I pray that the Christians in Iraq will look to You for their strength and their help. Thank You for those who have stood firm in the midst of threats and troubling situations. I also pray for their safety. I pray for those who have fled and sought refuge in other nations. I read of at least one nation that has not been allowing them to stay, but has been returning them to Iraq, and of another nation where many are housed in a refugee camp, and it is difficult to meet their needs, especially those of the traumatized children. Dear Father in Heaven, I pray for Your people in Iraq to be able to find Your help and to remain in their own homes in Iraq in peace and in safety. Please show Yourself as the Awesome God You are, Very Great, and always Mighty to save! In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Father God, Please protect the innocent who will be casting their votes in just a few hours establishing their new government. Please send your angels to do battle over the forces of evil who would seek to destroy all that has been won by the blood of our young men and women. Let it not be in vain. May your kingdom come and your will be done in Iraq as it is in heaven. May there be freedom from oppression especially for the believers in you. Thank you for what you are doing to bring about your kingdom on earth.

    Lord, we come in agreement with these posts and ask that you heed the cries of the poor, the oppressed and the innocent and battle weary citizens in Iraq and Afghanistan. Also we ask you to protect our soldiers, guide them in their daily actions and keep them from being harmed, maimed, injured or killed throughout this entire day and night. In Jesus name, Amen

    Father, Our Lord, Alpha & Omega, I come to You with a heart full of love and praise.I give 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”. LORD make these words spoken out of Your mouth come alive over Iraq. 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 joy knowing YOU WILL be there AT ALL TIMES for protection from all harm. FULFILL, in the name of Jesus, YOUR PURPOSE and DESTINY for Iraq.

    Father, we are like sheep without You and Your guidance. We don’t know where to go and how to get there. But, Father, thank you for Your Word which leads us and gives us the wisdom we need. We pray today for wisdom and guidance to be given to each and every one of our troops, wherever they are stationed, male and female. We lift them up to You, Lord; we know they are precious in Your sight. We ask that You protect each and every one and give them miracles when and where necessary for them to remain unharmed. We pray for our leaders that are being guided by You and following in Your ways. We pray for the ability to stand strong in these last days. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We add this prayer to the prayers of those warriors listed here so that multitudes of angels may be sent to the rescue and victory is ours. Amen

    M. Thompson Says:

    Dear Lord, You put us in rememberance of Your Holy Word. Time is not a diminsion where You Abide. Jonah WANTED wicked Nineviah, or modern day Iraq, destroyed as he had journed and had a whale of a time..ha ha….to tell them ONE time…40 days and Nineviah will be destroyed. What happened after only ONE warning from a bleached hippy looking stranger? Would we have believed him today? After just one warning? Dubious.
    But look what God said! And Malichai says God changes NOT! God said, and I’m paraphrasing for my Bible is in the car, “Jonah, why are you so mad? Look at all the children and the livestocks. The people don’t know their right hand from their left hand. Shouldn’t I have spared them?” So God cares about Iraqi children and their livestock! Marvelous! Now that we know that, we know that those innocent children need our prayers. Dear Lord, these people do have a heart for You, their ancestors of old did and these are their distant children. Have mercy and please please spare them. Thank you so much Jesus, Your Throne Room has mercy! In Jesus Name we pray, Amen.

    Father, Once again I look to the image here. A picture is worth a thousand words…children touch my heart. They are so innocent and teachable and trusting…God, I pray for them to be protected. God, I ask that you would call hearts to you. Lord I pray grace over these people. Lord, we stand with them seeking your help. You are a very present help in time of need. Father the troops march on the side of right under your banner Jehovah Nissi…God goes before them. AMEN

    Betsy P. Says:

    Great and Almighty Father, I thank You for the opportunity and the privilege to come before Your Throne on behalf of the innocent civilians and our soldiers in Baghdad, Iraq. I am seeking You with Wayne and my siblings in Christ as we ask for Your protection over those who would choose to live peaceably with their neighbors.
    May Your Hand of protection be revealed during the elections tomorrow. May our prayers turn back the enemies at the gate. Put a hook in the jaw of every would-be suicide bomber, Lord, and turn that one around to go back where he/she came from with a changed heart and mind.
    Be gloriously revealed as the King of kings and the Lord of lords, the One upon Whose shoulder the government rests. And may their be an increase of YOUR government and Your peace in Iraq. In the name of King Jesus I pray, amen.

    Pia Harrison Says:

    Today I pray Your words back to You for the upcoming election election tomorrow in Iraq.

    To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech. Counsel and sound wisdom are mine; I have understanding and power. By me kings reign and rulers make laws that are just; by me princes govern, and all nobles who rule on earth. I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me. With me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity. My fruit is better than fine gold; what I yeild surpasses choice silver. I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice, bestowing wealth on those who love me and making their treasuries full.
    Proverbs 8:13-21

    I also ask that the rulers who come to power in Iraq would seek You and use these verses in Proverbs to govern their people. May the terrorist mayhem be stopped and no innocent lives be lost during this election. Please give the people courage to vote. Protect those that are protecting the civilians and polling places.

    Bring Your Kingdom’s will for Iraq into being.

    Thank You, in Jesus name, AMEN

    Holy Father,
    I pray for the elections in Iraq. Let Your kingdom come in that place. Protect those who would vote. Impede the plans of evil to stop these elections or deter the voters. I pray for people in power who would love their nation and their brother and seek and freedom. I pray for a Spirit of cooperation to permeate that nation in Jesus name. Bring down a new level of hope for the future. Discourage the enemy. Give favor to the righteous. hear their prayers oh Lord. Let there be much rejoicing after the elections. i pray that the results will be swift and decisive and not contentious. Thank You Father. You are more than we could ever ask or imagine.

    Most High Lord of all, I give You praise for Your great love and mercy. How we all need Your love and mercy!! Lord, I pray for the people of Iraq. I know You want salvation to come to these people. So, I pray for Your great Holy Spirit to move throughout their land. Lord, be with Your missionairies there. Protect them and keep them from harm. Keep them close to You as they move about sharing Your good news to the people of Iraq. How wonderful You are! Open the hearts and minds of the people that the missionairies are lead to. Go before them and prepare the way. Lord, may You receive all glory and honor and praise each and every day of their lives. May they share Your great truth to their friends and family until all of Iraq is saved. I thank You Lord for hearing this prayer and I love You so much! Amen.

    Heavenly Father,

    You are a just God and I ask that You would let justice prevail in Baghdad and all of Iraq. Please let those who perpetrate violence be caught up with and put where they can no longer harm people. And I pray for their salvation that would turn them into good citizens able and willing to help their neighbor rather than seeking to hurt people. I pray opportunities will be given for those who have hurt others to make restitution. May You help justice to be served. May everything that is broken fit together like a jigsaw puzzle coming together to make a new picture of a peaceful Baghdad. Please keep a watchful eye upon all Your children in Iraq today and this evening and keep them from being hurt in any way. Please help them to experience wellness of body, mind and soul. I pray in the name of Jesus, Amen

    Faye Says:

    Father God I praise Your Holy Name. I pray that You will Hold the people of Baghdad in the “shadow of your wings” and keep them safe. So many innocent men,women,and children have lost their lives…it needs to stop. I know that Your Word says that their will be “wars and rumors of wars”, but I just pray for the end of it all. I know that will not happen until Jesus returns. Please let all of the people have an open heart and mind to Your Word and that there are Christians among them to witness to them.
    In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name I pray. Amen
