10-Protection for the Troops and Police

Scripture: “Blessed is he who has regard for the weak; the LORD delivers him in times of trouble. 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.” -Psalm 41:1-2 (NIV)

Prayer: God of power and might, there is no one who can challenge Your power or authority. You are the King of all creation.

I bring before You the troops and police serving in Baghdad today. They are there to protect the weak and the helpless. According to Your word, I call forth the protection they need today.

Deliver them from death and let the plans of those who hate peace fail, and their bullets fall to the ground. Most High God, we ask for You to defend those who defend the weak — surround them with Your favor as a shield. May Your angels guard them and lead them out of the snares of the wicked.

    Father, as the troops prepare for the night watch, be their eyes and ears. May they see and hear anything that is not right, and may they comprehend what it represents so they can take defensive action. Protect them, Lord. And be with those who sleep, that they might be renewed physically. Speak through visions and dreams so that they will be renewed spiritually. Be with the chaplains and speak through them to the hearts of the troops tomorrow. Protect those who defend the defenseless. Enable them to walk in humility and bind their hearts to the hearts of those they serve.

    Oh Father, Your Words in Psalm 41 are true of the soldiers and police in Baghdad who are defending the powerless. Apply every promise in these words to them and to their families. We surrender our lives totally, as much as we know how, to You and Your will and ways today. Stifle every flame of vengeance that would blaze up into destruction. Squelch the wrath of man in Sadr City. Hold sway over every heart. Flood all the people of Baghdad with Your love, and do not let them resist You. I ask all this in the name of Your Humble, Merciful, Powerful Son, Jesus, name above all other names, amen.

    Dear Lord,

    With all the soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, I bring my son who is Iraq. Your mighty hand will protect them and bring them home safely. May they experience your abiding presence. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.

    Loving Lord of all, I praise Your holy name! Precious Lord, I thank You for all the troops that serve You to protect the innocent people. Lord, open their hearts to You. Guide their coming and going. May they feel Your divine Presence with them and lead them in the way they should go. Protect them from evil thoughts or desires as they are human. Lord, may You alone receive all the glory and honor and love. Amen.

    M Tebault Says:

    Thank you, Lord, that you have regard for the weak. Be their sure defender today. Rescue them from oppression. Preserve them from the wicked plans of the enemy. Speak to their hearts, Father, of the love you have for them. Reveal your son Jesus so they might believe. Help them quickly grow to maturity by planting them in fully developed fellowships. Feed them with your Word. May they be doers of the word – forgiving, sharing, caring for their own and reaching out to others.

    Dear Lord: This dear US Soldier is trying to survive every minute of the day. I wonder how he sleeps at night. I wonder if his food is nutritious and adequate. I wonder how he manages to do this day in and day out even with little or no sleep. I wonder if his family back home is worried about him. Is he ready to face God? He faces death every minute of every day. Do we in America realize how important it is to pray for them? They ARE America. They are our best. Please Lord, send prayer partners adequate to fit the need for prayers for protection and peace for them. Lord, stop the suicides and bring healing and understanding to those who survivie. Give them a revival in the Military and let them sleep at night in peace in Jesus Arms of safety. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.

    Father God, there is none like You, Creator of the Universe, no one else could ever have done this. You are an awesome God! We thank You this morning for calling us Your children. And we ask for divine, supernatural protection over the troops and over the people of Baghdad, Iraq, and particularly Adhamiya. Bless the ones who are forgiving their neighbors, and the ones who have hurt them. Bless them with the strength to forgive, love, bless, and pray for their persecutors. We bless You for all of Your gifts to us – life, breath, food, clothing, shelter, people who care for others, who protect and guard the lives You have given. We are Your people and we give You praise! We love You, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, amen.

    Betsy P. Says:

    Hallelujah, Lord! Hallelujah, Lord! You alone are God, and You love us with an everlasting love. May all those serving in Baghdad, Iraq, Adhamiya be protected by You mighty outstretched arm which no foe can withstand. May such forgiveness flow between people that they wouldn’t even think of harming one another. Let You love so flow in Iraq that all unforgiveness, bitterness, anger, wrath, clamor and evil speaking would be put away frm all peoples. Cause each and everyone in that land to be kind, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as You also, for Christ’s sake have forgiven us. Then, all will be tranquil, and peace – Your Prince of Peace – will reign, amen.

    “Because of the oppression of the weak and the groaning of the needy, I will now arise,” says the LORD. “I will protect them from those who malign them.”Psalm 12:5

    Arise, O Lord, and protect the weak. Surround those who are unable to defend themselves. Turn their eyes to seek you, Jesus. Speak to them in vision and dreams as they sleep. May they turn and be saved.

    Father, God of our Lord Jesus Christ Thank You for Your mercy that is fresh and new every morning.Please pour out Your mercy on the troops and leaders of Iraq today. Father I stand in agreement with the prayers for protection of our troops and the leaders of Iraq. I ask You to stop the enemy in his tracks, bring confusion upon his plans to harm the innocent. May You be lifted up and glorified by Your people in Iraq so that all may come to know You as Lord and Savior. Have Your way in the hearts of the leaders today in Jesus’ name

    Judy Says:

    Father, I join with the other voices asking that the weak not only be protected by the troops and police but that this same group of people will live in integrity and refuse to be corrupted. Father, as elections approach in Irag, we already hear rumblings of discord..some being shut out as candidates…a female candidate being killed and “the possibility of civil war.” Father, You know how much blood was shed to free Iraq. You know there are thousands of families whose lives were forever changed because of the sacrifice made by a loved one…You know how many now suffer from wounds — wounds of the spirit and mind, wounds of the body. Please, dear Lord, let peace prevail in Iraq! Thank You Jesus that You hear; You act. Amen.

    Father, As the winds blow strong today, I pray the wind blows strong in Baghdad. Let your spirit be upon those who are defending the weak. Let them STAND in this wind but take down the enemy who is not protected by your shield about them. I pray for the soldiers who need your strength, those defending and protecting those who are weak. Father,be with your army. Let the howls of the wind overtake the threats and tricks of the evil ones. Scare them to death with your mighty power. I pray for a clean sweep. Blow all the dirt away, all that is evil. Thank You God for hearing and answering our cries for help for these people. They are choosing sides. There is no fear in perfect love which is YOU, GOD. I pray they call upon you and draw near to you. I pray they run into you, their high tower and defender, protector and lover. Draw them under your wings and keep them safe. AMEN

    Father as your new word is raised up and burned in our forheads let us declare your name above the nations. Let us receive with the joy of the Lord. Lift up your heads you ancient gates so the king of glory can come in. I praise you oh Lord my God, I bless your name in all the Earth.

    I pray this psalm over baghdad today
    Psalms 91
    1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
    will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
    2 This I declare about the LORD:
    He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
    he is my God, and I trust him.
    3 For he will rescue you from every trap
    and protect you from deadly disease.
    4 He will cover you with his feathers.
    He will shelter you with his wings.
    His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

Give them blessings of promotions, finances, and assurance of peace for their families. In the name of Jesus I pray and thank you for hearing all our prayers and rays of light going up to Your throne room. ALL THE GLORY and HONOR is Yours. Amen and Amen
