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.
