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.

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Dear Heavenly Father,

    God is good and God is great: Lord, You have heard so many children and adults repeat those beginning words of a blessing daily. Those are true words and that is why we come to You now. We seek Your action based on Your goodness and greatness on behalf of the innocent civilians in Baghdad and Iraq. Please protect them from harm. God, please go beyond protection and meeting the basic needs of their lives to giving them pure knowledge of You and Jesus as their Savior. Basic needs of life met are a beginning but knowledge of Jesus gives abundant life. That is what I pray for today for the innocent civilians that have suffered way too long at the hands of the troublemakers in their country. Bless all the little children and let them come to You. Make a clear and straight path for them so they will not stumble or fall along the way. Give their parents wisdom and encourage them when they are exasperated by the immaturity of their children. Let all the people circle up around the children to protect them from any danger as You circle up around the whole country to keep it safe from outside evil influences. Do not let any evil enter in at any of the borders or from the sky above or from the ground below. I pray all these blessings to be upon Baghdad and Iraq sincerely in hope that I have prayed within Your will so I will hear of Your favorable action. I pray through the blessed name of Jesus, Amen.

    Dear Heavenly Father, we give you honor and praise today for who you are and not just for what you have done. Thank you that you are the only true and living God who takes away the sins of the world. We stand in the gap today for the people and especially the children in Iraq, Afghanistan and Baghdad. We ask your hand of mercy upon them today. We pray for the oppressed people of Iran and North Korea, China, Russia and all around the world. We cry out for mercy upon the people of Sudan. Lord, we ask that you help us keep our eyes on you, when all else around us seems to be failing. We pray for Israel today and for our own country that we would have a revival filled with the spirit of the living God. In the name of Jesus and through his blood, I pray.

    Heavenly Father protect all of those who desire and love peace. Place a shield of protection all around our troops and those who are in right relationship with them. Protect all of us from the lies that are spread to cause conflict and disrupt the Spirit of peace.

    KJV, Authorized version: Revelations 21-1-5

    “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

    And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

    And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.


    And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.”

    Dear American Soldiers: I love you and always pray for your safety and peace of mind. Your current situation leaves me speechless. In these cases it is best to give you the Word of the Living God and let it’s truth sink into your spirit and start to heal. Love in Christ, MT

    Judith Connell, Greenbank, On., Canada Says:

    FEAR – a major roadblock to opening our hearts to the Lord. So, no wonder the Iraqi people are like deer caught in headlights. Their fear, imagined or real, of the insurgents keeps them paralyzed and unable to even consider acknowledging another religion.

    Only You, the Holy Trinity are able to melt that fear by signs and wonders giving these people the confidence to see You are the God that repeatedly caused Dagon to fall in worship of You so many centuries ago.

    Keep us feeling safe just as You do for those in Iraq. We praise You and thank You, in advance, for Your wonderful mercy in this matter.

    5. I lay down and slept;(Our Civillians).
    I awoke, (our civillians). For the Lord sustained me.( our civillians).
    6. I (our civillians)will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
    Who have set themselves against me( our civillians).
    7. Arise , O Lord;
    Save me (our civillians)O my God!
    For You have struck all my (our civillians) enemies on the cheekbones;You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.

    Your blessing is upon Your people( our civillians)
    In Christ Jesus name; The Son of a Living God

    Psalms 8:1-2 ” O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens!” 2) ” Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.” I pray for the children of Iraq tonight, Lord raise them up and strengthen them. It is you O Lord that has given them a hope and a future. Bless them Lord and favor them with your righteous right hand. I pray that you will silence the enemy and avenger of their souls. Bring salvation to the Iraqi children, to the orphans, and the widows. Watch over them and take care of them Lord Jesus. I pray for our soldiers tonight Lord. I plead your precious blood over each and everyone of them Lord Jesus. Keep them under your wing Father, and bring Chris and Sarah home safe, whole, and healed. In Jesus Mighty and Wonderful Name.

    Dear Father in Heaven, we can only begin to understand the things Your people are facing in the troubled places of this world, but we can appeal to You, the all-knowing God, on their behalf. I pray for the needy and the weak who have been caught up in this war in Iraq. Please help them find their way through trouble and may any who are in a position to aid them, whether troops in the area or neighbours or others, be willing to provide a refuge for them in this time of need. Dear Father my thoughts also go to the needs of Your often humble and downtrodden people in Pakistan today. We cannot know what they are facing in this situation, but we can appeal to You for their needs to be met. May it be Your will that is done in Baghdad today, and in every troubled place in this hurting world. In the precious Name of our Savior, Jesus, Who came to earth to destroy the works of the devil. Amen.

    Lois Says:

    Heavenly Father, I come today before your throne to say thanks for your love, protection, peace, and faithfulness. Thank you for your promises, love, and loving destiny for the YOUTH of this generation. LEAD EACH OF THEM THROUGH OUT THE WORLD BY YOUR LOVE AND “WORD”. I pray Father that the protecive hedge be over ALL the children wherever they are today and in the future.

    2 Thes. 3:3 But the Lord IS FAITHFUL; He will make you strong and guard you from the evil one.
    Isaiah 41:10 Don’t be afraid, for I AM WITH YOU. Do not be dismayed, for I AM YOUR GOD. I will STRENGTHEN you. I will uphold you with MY VICTORIOUS RIGHT HAND.
    Psalm 121:7-8 [7] The Lord keeps you from all evil and preserves your life. [8] The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.

    Our Father which is in heaven may Your name be lifted up. Father You are our mighty warrior, our peace, and our strength. I agree with Your Word that is written in the above paragraph, that You are faithful and always watching over us. May You watch over now the children, parents, and families who are innocent amongst this war in Iraq and Afghanistan. I PROCLAIM AND DECLARE LORD THAT YOU WILL COMFORT AND SUPPLY THEM WITH ALL THEIR NEEDS in the name of Jesus. I declare Lord that your plans and destiny for the land of Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Middle East will be fulfilled as you said in your Word. YOU COMMANDED US LORD “To go forth and preach the GOOD NEWS, and make desciples”. Continue to keep the WINDOWS OF HEAVEN OPEN LORD OVER THE WHOLE MIDDLE EAST, hence, they will hear your “Word”, and become “your children” and faithfully fulfill your commands.

    Father, Jehovah Shalom, and Jehovah Nissi, be with our soldiers there in Iraq and Afghanistan and love upon them. May they see and know that you are helping them fight this battle. Give them your strenght and wisdom continuely of where the enemy is located, their plans, and where they have their weapons hidden. Lord you are the only one that can bring true judgement and justice upon the terrorist. HOLY SPIRIT AND HEAVENLY FATHER, soften their hearts and bring them to their knees with a broken spirit and contrite heart and beg/ask for mercy and forgiveness. Become to them their Lord God Almighty of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as never before, with newness of life, and pour down your Holy Spirit like you say in Joel 2:28 upon the Middle East. I pray this Lord in the authority and blood of Jesus, and say its done. All glory is your alone Lord. Amen and Amen.
