(Hold the Peace is a daily campaign of prayer through July 2009, to resist the current surge of violence in Baghdad. Please join us.)
Protect the Men of Peace
Scripture: The LORD will protect him and preserve his life; he will bless him in the land and not surrender him to the desire of his foes. -Psalms 41:2
Prayer: Lord, You are a shield, and a strong tower. You are a fortress and our hiding place. You are the God over all the earth, and there is no one who can challenge Your power.
I pray for the men and women of peace in Baghdad. Those who reject violence and promote unity and peace among the people. I ask that you would protect and preserve them from the attacks and intimidation of the wicked. Cause Your angels Lord to encamp around them to give them courage and keep them safe.
Lord I ask that You would protect and preserve their life and not surrender them to the desire of their foes. For the sake of the peace of Baghdad, I ask that You would cover these friends of truth with Your wings, and overshadow them with Your mighty presence. In Jesus name and for His sake, amen.
