Scripture: “No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength…But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love.” -Psalm 33:16-19
Prayer: Jesus, You are the Prince of Peace, and Your sovereignty rules over all. Your Kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and one day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that You are Lord to the glory of the Father.
We come before Your throne of grace and ask that You would release divine help to the peacemakers. Our hope is not in the size of the army, or the strength of its men, but we make our request to You, Lord God. We ask for Your angels to preserve the lives of those who love peace: the men and women who will rebuild Baghdad and its surrounding region. We ask that You grant special protection and escapes from death to these key people.
Together, we put our hope in Your unfailing love, and we ask for Your Kingdom to come and Your will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus name, Amen.
