Lord you are King for ever and ever, and You hear, the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and the oppressed. There is no One like You Lord who watches over those who are cast down and needy.
Lord together we unite our hearts and take a stand before your throne of grace. You said that we could approach your throne with confidence, in order to receive your help in times of need. This is a time of need for the mothers in Iraq. Lord please look upon their troubles, their grief, and the terror they are facing.
We ask for provision, for your angels to go and establish safe places of refuge; for your peace to hover and defy the wicked agendas that seek to bring destruction. We stand in the gap against this violence and agree with Your word Lord, that You would break the arm of the wicked and evil man, and call him to account for his wickedness.
Hear the cries of the Mothers Lord and say to the violence, â€œThus far and no more!â€ Let your decree go forth across the land, that compassion and forgiveness would prevail over violence and vengeance. Honor the hearts and sacrifices of the mothers Lord, and bless their households with peace today. In Jesus name, amen
â€œThe Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.â€ -Ps.34:18
