Worship God Over Baghdad
Scripture: Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is he, this King of glory? The LORD Almighty, he is the King of glory. -Psalms 24:8-10
Prayer: O God, Your praise reaches to the ends of the earth; your right hand is filled with righteousness. You are the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. The earth is Yours and all it contains: every nation, tribe, family, and city.
Lord, we acknowledge that there are spiritual forces at work over Baghdad. There are gods in the land that oppress and manipulate the people, but You are the King of Glory, and we worship You as the God of all the earth, and the God of Baghdad. You alone are worthy to rule over the people of Baghdad because You gave Your son for them. Be exalted over this place and its people.
We speak to the entry-ways of Baghdad, and we say, “Lift up Your heads, you gates, lift them up ancient doors, that the King of Glory may come in.” He is the Lord, God Almighty, and every other god must yield his place and bow his knee to the King of Glory. Flee from this place you spirits of darkness! The price has been paid for the souls that live there! Release them and bow down to Jesus, the King of Glory.
