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, Abba,

    Many are lifting up prayers to You on behalf of those You have placed in the city of Baghdad. You are aware of the needs of each one in that city because You are all-knowing even to the point of knowing the hairs on the heads of Your children. Since You know all the details, I pray for Your divine protection to cover the city of Baghdad so that not even a hair is touched by violence in that city. Let Your peace come to be the rule there. Bless all who are working towards Your goals in Baghdad with the strength, compassion, and supplies to make a Kingdom difference. All praise and glory to You God for Your great works shining out to the world from Baghdad. Through Jesus, Amen.

    Jesus, I ask that the financial backing for the terrorists dry up. I ask that they have no more resources for evil, but grace and compassion for repentance. Give them grace to turn to You, to change and to give up their evil acts. In Jesus’ name. Amen

    Thank you LORD that Your presence has filled Baghdad and all of Iraq and the war is coming to a close. We praise you for protection of the innocent and for removal of those with evil intent. Thank you that Jesus has entered the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people and all perversions of truth have been uprooted. We are anxiously watching for the manifestations in the natural for what has already been done in the spirit. Jesus is Lord of all the earth.

    Katy - mother of 1 of the Brave Says:

    Dearest Lord we pray to you for peace in this war torn and chaotic country. Peace as well to all countries on this glorious planet of yours that we all call home. When I say war torn country most would assume I speak of Iraq. I refer to the USA. Our country is as torn as if the war is being waged on our soil. Please Lord mend the hearts of our politicians and guide them in the direction that will help bring peace to Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and all other countries where strife reigns. Please protect all soldiers worldwide in “harms way” and bring them home to safety, whether it be in Your loving arms or the loving arms of their familes on earth. Lord please give these young children of Iraq a chance to rebuild their homes and lives with your loving guidance. Protect them from harm and enfold them all in your loving embrace. Thank you Lord for giving us the choice to walk with you and carry the word to those in darkness. Blessings to all!

    Dear Father in Heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy Kingdom come, to Bagdad and America, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
    Lord, we hear that 5 more precious soldiers died yesterday, maybe more but they didn’t mention it. Our hearts BREAK to hear this news. Let this keep us sober of the very real dangers by the seconds that our dearest and best youth of America are facing. Death is faced not just daily but at any moment.
    It is the least we can do here in America to pray for protection, encouragement and salvation. Please allow us here in America to be with our soldiers dear Lord, in the spirit so they don’t feel alone. Tell them that angels surround them, YOU are all seeing and see them and that their loved ones too are praying for them.
    Help us to be reminded by the passing of these 5 American Soldiers of the brevity of life in these last days and the necessity for ALL to be prepared at ALL times to meet our GOD. Father/Son/HolyGhost. Love in Christ our risen Saviour, MT

    Father God: My heart is so heavy just looking at the precious faces of the children in the picture in today’s prayer. I pray for relief for these oppressed children and the familes that have lost loved ones. Please, Father, if it is Your will, bring an end to the violence in Bagdhad so that there will be no more orphans. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen MARANATHA!!!!!!

    Heavenly Father; It is one of our urgent requests that You place guardian angels around each of our civillians in Baghdad and around other provinces in IraQ; Pakistan; Afghanistan and other remote places in the world.That each of them are protected when they go out, and when they come in; in Jesus name.
    And Father, It goes without saying that our military personnel who are out on the front line are duly protected. Guide their words and their deed.
    In Jesus name,
    Amen.
    Father , thank You for our prayer coordinators, and send each of them double Blessings this day.

    Father God, as I look at the faces of these innocent boys, I see a vision of what you can do through these young lives. You, and you alone, can block the indoctrination they receive to hate and earn a place in heaven through martyrdom. You, and you alone, can replace that evil teaching with Love and Gentleness, and Kindness, and concern for others. Please, Father, we ask that you bring up a new generation of people in Iraq who have heard the Truth, and live by it. May you be glorified in all of the world!!

    Joan Bowe Says:

    Lord, without You we are nothing. In You we live and move and have our being. Holy One, we lift to You the precious people of Baghdad, especially the weak and needy. We also pray for our enemies, that their eyes would be opened to see You in Truth and that You Light would cause the enemy to flee. Dear Lord, we lift this Psalm to You, in awe of Who You are. Bless You this day, Holy One and always:

    Psalm 103:

    Bless the LORD, O my soul;
    And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
    2 Bless the LORD, O my soul,
    And forget not all His benefits:
    3 Who forgives all your iniquities,
    Who heals all your diseases,
    4 Who redeems your life from destruction,
    Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
    5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
    So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

    6 The LORD executes righteousness
    And justice for all who are oppressed.
    7 He made known His ways to Moses,
    His acts to the children of Israel.
    8 The LORD is merciful and gracious,
    Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.
    9 He will not always strive with us,
    Nor will He keep His anger forever.
    10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
    Nor punished us according to our iniquities.

    11 For as the heavens are high above the earth,
    So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
    12 As far as the east is from the west,
    So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
    13 As a father pities his children,
    So the LORD pities those who fear Him.
    14 For He knows our frame;
    He remembers that we are dust.

    15 As for man, his days are like grass;
    As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
    16 For the wind passes over it, and it is gone,
    And its place remembers it no more.[a]
    17 But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting
    On those who fear Him,
    And His righteousness to children’s children,
    18 To such as keep His covenant,
    And to those who remember His commandments to do them.

    19 The LORD has established His throne in heaven,
    And His kingdom rules over all.

    20 Bless the LORD, you His angels,
    Who excel in strength, who do His word,
    Heeding the voice of His word.
    21 Bless the LORD, all you His hosts,
    You ministers of His, who do His pleasure.
    22 Bless the LORD, all His works,
    In all places of His dominion.

    Bless the LORD, O my soul!

    June Says:

    Heavenly Father,
    Again we ask that you pour out your Holy Spirit upon this city on all men, women and children.
    Convict those guilty of violence and bring them to repentance. Encourage the weak and increase your strength in them. Let the mute speak your words and let the deaf hear them. May all be given thoughts of you and your desire for us to live on earth peacefully as you and your Father live in peace in the heavens. Empower your people in faith and godliness and all for the sake of the building up of your heavenly kingdom.
    AMEN

    Judith Connell, Greenbank, On., Canada Says:

    Judge the oppressor of the innocent. Help the widows and the orphans. These are comforting phrases which ring out from the Good Word promising us that when we might find ourselves in the exact same set of circumstances You will definitely extend Your right hand down to us and lift us up to You to become close to You again – safe, fed and with a place to lay our heads.

    You are the Incredible One and we Praise You Above All Else!

    For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgement and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. Isaiah 9:6,7. And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Establish your government in Iraq Lord. I pray for the fatherless and the widow tonight Lord, for you will give strenth to Your people; You Lord, will bless your Iraqi people with peace.

    Lois Says:

    Heavenly Father, I thank you for this wonderful day you gave us. Thank you for your great and unconditional love, mercy, and grace. I thank you for your beloved Son Jesus Christ and that through Him we can come back into fellowship with you and have eternal life.

    Father, your love for the children is absolutely wonderful and you wish we all had the faith and innocense that they have. I ask that you would cover them with your protected hedge that no harm would fall upon them. Lord, open up their eyes to see and read your word, open up their ears that they may hear about your love. Help them to learn and know the destiny you planned for them from the day they were born. Be with our soldiers over there in Iraq and Afghanistan, and bless them with your protection, love, wisdom, and grace. Give them the strength and courage they need day by day. Be their fortress and strong tower in the name of Jesus I pray.
