15-Thwart the plans of the wicked

Scripture: “The LORD is known by his justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands.” – Psalm 9:16

Prayer: Lord, You are God and there is no other; You reign in the heavens, and nothing escapes Your notice. You are a God of justice, and Your ear is open to the cry of the righteous.

suicide_bomber1.jpgWe ask that You would oppose those who hate peace in Baghdad. Send Your angels to resist those who love violence, and thwart the plans of the wicked. Disallow destructive schemes and devices. Bring confusion, doubt, and fear into the hearts and minds of those who are planning evil in Baghdad today. Cause the bombs planted by terrorists to misfire today, and bring no harm to the innocent.

Even as Your word says, “the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands,” let those who promote fear and confusion in Baghdad today, be ensnared by the work of their own hands.

We thank You Lord, that nothing is too difficult for You, and we agree together for victory. In Jesus name, amen.

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    I pray for Your hand to disable any of the weapons that are being used to aim at any of the troops or police in Baghdad and Iraq. May they misfire and hit the ground. Please blur the vision of any who are trying to set their sites on the troops and police. I pray that no civilian will be threatened with a weapon. Please Lord if plans are being made for any new major attacks I pray You will put obstacles in front of the planners so they can not see a clear way to move forward with their plans. Please make delays in their obtaining weapons. Please make whatever weapons they have be faulty so they can not properly hold ammunition. Lord, I know You have Your own ways and I only make suggestions of possible ways You might intervene. Please help me to not be presumptuous and think that You would act according to what I say for I know Your will takes priority. May Your will always be done in all things that happen on earth. You are the greatest Lord and I respect that You know best and will do whatever is necessary to preserve the lives according to Your goals. I pray through Your blessed Son, our Savior, Jesus. Amen

    Lord, we declare that you will rule and reign over Baghdad. Lord, you say in your word that you will give us the nations if we ask you for them. And, Lord, we are asking right not for Iraq. Lord, we pray for Muqtada al-Sadr, that you would turn the heart of this leader who wants to attack U.S. troops. Lord, we ask that you would send a rumor into his camp that he needs to bring his attention home or to another border. We pray for protection of the American troops. If your work is not done in Iraq and you are using this threat to further your kingdom, we ask that there not be one injury or death of any American or innocent. Lord, we pray that you would deal with this man and his followers. We pray that you would visit him even as he sleeps. May his sleep be disturbed and may he choose to obey you. Lord, we ask for you to hover over this region and continue protecting the peace that has been attained to date. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

    And, Lord, a special prayer for our troops in Afghanastan and a Marine friend named Mark. I pray your hand upon this young man and may he dwell under your wing of protection. Surround him and his troops with your warring and ministering angels. Lord, protect all of our troops in Afghanastan and we pray your kingdom will come to Kabul too. In Jesus name, Amen.

    Thank you Heavenly Father. We give You honor this day and pray for Your mercy and grace that is new every morning. I pray for every military person honoring You with their life. Bind them together with Your cord of love that cannot be broken. Let their lives be a witness to Your very presence. Let them rely, and lean upon You for their every waking moment. That they call upon You for wisdom. That they see those things that are hidden. That they know they are encamped around by angels to protect them. That they know You inhabit the praises of Your people. That praise is continually in their heart and upon their lips. Let fear be far from them and threats and danger have no place in, about, and around them. Let the words of their mouth encourage one another. Thank you for giving them hearts dedicated to serving You and thank You for their sacrifice, that their lives will not be harmed nor the people they are there to protect. Thank You, Lord. We place our hope, in You. Increase their faith, hope, and love. You set all men free. Let not one more life be lost. Victory be achieved. Grant Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We love You, Lord. Thank You for hearing our prayer. Amen

    Father God, I pray for all the civilians. Those in the war zones and those at home separated from their loved ones. Let their plans and purposes be covered in prayer. I bind fear far from them. Give them increased faith to fight the good fight of faith, to not lean upon their own understanding, to not dread or fear. Flood their hearts with supernatural praise and thanksgiving. Let threatening rumors, or any plans spoken to bring harm, fall dead to the ground and have no affect. Let every person arm themselves with Your full armour. Bring to mind Your WORD, Your promises, Your faith to see them through. Thank You, LORD. We love You and trust You.

    Father, Expose the wicked. Let their ideologies be exposed for what they really are. Let no one be enamored with wicked ideologies. Let truth be revealed. Let error be exposed. We declare that all people of the world have aligned their minds with the mind of Christ. Let us all have the mind of Christ. Let us all take our thoughts captive and only entertain righteous thoughts. Let us all cast aside foolish and ungodly thoughts. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

    Amanda Says:

    Lord reveal the places and plans of those who are plotting evil. I ask that you, El Roi, would enter into their lives and bring revelation of yourself as the “I AM”. Change hearts and lives today in this city.

    I pray for our soldiers, our guardians, our heros and ask that you would honor them with a day of peace. Keep them from harm and give them great wisdom.

    Dottie Says:

    Dear Father I pray that the enemy will be bound today in Iraq. Father fill the Shiiti leader with your Holy Spirit so that he will not cause any harm to the citizens of Iraq or our soldiers and all the peace keepers who are seeking law and order in Irsq. Bind all who seek to disrupt the peace that has been achieved. Thank you for all the answered prayers and keeping watch over the innocent. We have peace knowing that you are in charge of all the universe. Bring peace to all of the middle east I pray in Jesus name. Amen

    Sherrill Says:

    Father, I join my voice to the others who pray here. You said one would send 1,000 to flight but two would send 10,000 to flight. Father, we ask that You dispatch the angels today to protect and comfort those in harm’s way serving our country in places far from home. We ask that our nation will be a nation of the people, not to be ruled by unjust judges who overrule the wishes of the people. Only You have the answers and the power. We pray for Your intervention. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

    Lynn Says:

    Father, nothing is too great for You! And now we hear of new plans against our troops, so we look to You, we continue to run to Your throne with our pleading and requests. You have done great things in Baghdad! Only with Your help were US casualties able to fall to zero in October! The enemy still looms, though. Why do they hate peace so? Change their hearts! Thwart their plans! Cause confustion in their camps! Let them grow weary of fighting and decide it’s not for them! Safeguard each and every one of our soldiers, and the Iraqi soldiers. Help the peace-loving citizens to not stand for violence to return to their city. And protect our soldiers all over the Middle East, Lord, we ask, we pray, we love You! In Jesus name. Amen and Amen.

    Amanda Says:

    I pray that you would reveal everything in the darkness that tries to hide evil, and expose it to the light not just in this city but in Afghanistan as well. Build a wall that you have promised in your word. Do not let evil overcome good.

    I pray for each soldier, chaplain, child and family to receive wisdom and protection from you.

    Lilian Says:

    Our gracious and loving Father we praise and honor you for this opportunity to agree in prayer with our fellow servants. We declare by faith that inner peace of mind, assurance of comfort and peace will be upon our fellow believers who are fleeing from the wickedness of the evil in Mosul.
    May your wisdom and protection be upon the Troops and the Iraqi Police as they carry on their daily responsibility in Karrada and the whole Iraq. In Jesus mighty name we pray and seek your Holy Spirit’s ministry be upon your children who are part of this restoration process so that their light will shine to the unblievers that surrounds them for your glory and honor. Amen

    Jean Says:

    Loving Heavenly Father, I am impressed by the text of today’s prayer prompt, that You are known by Your justice. Elsewhere the Word tells us that Your compassions never fail. How then, does someone know whether or not what they are following is of God? The answer can be found in whether it meets the twin tests of justice and compassion, of truth and mercy. Heavenly Father, for anyone to randomly take the lives of innocent people is neither just nor compassionate. Nor is the tendency to treat people made in Your image as if they were expendable for political gain. Therefore we can be sure that these things are not of God, no matter what human leaders might try to tell us. Father, I pray for justice, peace and stability to be restored to Baghdad. Today I also want to pray same for Mosul as well, having just learned of the murderous persecutions Your people have been enduring in that city. May the perpetrators of evil repent of their wrongdoing and fall upon Your mercy, lest they soon be cut down and forgotten like the grass that is thrown into the fire. May Your people find safety and comfort and help appropriate to their needs and may justice be swift on their behalf. I thank You so much that You care about our needs far more than we can ever hope or imagine. May Your will be done in Baghdad and in Mosul today. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Lois Lively Says:

    Lord God, our El-shaddai, our Jehovah Nissi how I thank you for being our Father that loves and cares for your children. You are the one that sees all our troubles and helps us when we call upon your wonderful name.

    Lord, I ask in the name of Jesus to stop ALL THE PLANS of violence today that is against the people of Iraq, of Afghanistan, our allies, and our soldiers. Give our soldiers, the Iraqi soldiers, and the Afgani soldiers the strength they need. May they receive YOUR Wisdom and knowledge Father. HELP THEM to be able to find ALL THE HIDING PLACES OF THE ENEMY, to stop all their plans, and destroy all the weapons. Father, bring confusion, fear, and doubt into the camps of the enemy like was done for Gideon and Joshua.

    I bring before you now Father all the Iraqi and Afgani Christians and I plead the blood of Jesus to cover them. Give them Lord supernatural strength and boldness to stand fast in the love of Jesus and your word. Give them who are fleeing for their lives the clothing, food, shelter, comfort, and love from you heavenly Father. Protect them from the front and in the rear Lord, and pour down your blessings and heavenly rain upon these precious lambs of God. I pray this in the name of Jesus and give you all the glory for what you and your warriors will do today vitoriously. Amen

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    I pray You would thwart the plans of the wicked this day in Baghdad and all of Iraq. Please help those who are Christian and being treated so badly and who fear for their lives. Please keep them safe and quickly bring them to settled living conditions. Fear is being planted by the wicked in the country and I pray You will make a way to overcome any reason for fear or concern. I pray for the safety of all the troops who are in Iraq and Afghanistan that You would not let any weapon respond successfully against them. Please tie the hands of the wicked with invisible threads which they are unable to break loose. Please confuse their speech and make them to be weary in their evil pursuits. O Lord, Your strong action is called forth on behalf of the innocents in Baghdad who have suffered at the hands of the wicked. Help! Please, Today! Through Jesus, Amen

    M. Thompson Says:

    Dear Lord:
    We praise you above the Heavens and below. Let everything that has breath Praise the Lord.
    Thank you also for being so intricately involved with your creation. Esp. that your ear is open to the righteous.
    Dear Lord: Let every US Soldier use your Word as a Weapon. Your Word is our offensive weapon and never fails.
    Your Word never goes out void but accomplishes that for which it was sent. It is the faithful Messenger in all the earth.
    So I claim for our Precious Servicemen and women in harms way Your Reliable Word, “No weapon fashioned against them will prosper.”
    Let them memorize this Scripture and repeat it as they put on their daily armor, as well as the armor of God, Ephesians 6: The Helmet of Salvation, the Belt of Truth, The loins gird with Righteousness, the Sword of the Spirit (God’s Word the Holy Bible), and the Shoes of Peace.
    AND AGAIN: Isaiah:
    In Jesus Name we pray, Amen

    Michael Powell Says:

    Dear God, Ancient of Days, King of Kings – Lord of lords, Our risen King be glorified over all the earth. Mighty God, may Your Kingdom come – bring Your life – Bring freedom to those who are held captive in slavery and brake the chains of slavery & Give them freedom and life more abundantly to all “John 3:16”. Let this be the day when You expose the plots of the enemy as you promised in the book of Revelations “Those who love violence. For those who plot evil & slavery”. Let this be the day when you expose and destroy the weapons of darkness “Psalm 2”. Expose their hidden agenda and put an end to it. Expose the bombakers’ pipelines and put an end to the making of and releasing of this weapon. Let this be the day when you shine Your light in the darkest caves and expose the enemies plans “2 Corinthians 10:4”. I also pray that a revival can come to Baghdad to open the floodgates of freedom to all who are in slavery and held captive. I pray this in Jesus name. Amen.

    Mary T Says:

    I just received this prayer request:
    “Thousands of Iraqi Christians have fled the city of Mosul in northern Iraq over the past week after Sunni Muslim extremists launched a deadly campaign to remove the Christian community from the city. At least seven Christians were murdered between 4 and 8 October. Other estimates suggest the number of Christians killed is as high as 25 or even 40. Christian houses have been blown up, and at least 744 Christian families (approximately 3,750 people) have left their homes to find refuge with relatives or in churches and Christian centres in seven towns and villages to the north and east of Mosul. Some are sleeping in their cars. They are in desperate need of food, clothes, bedding, items for personal hygiene and other basic necessities. Leaflets have been distributed in Mosul, threatening Christians with death unless they convert to Islam or pay the Islamic jizya tax that marks them as second-class citizens. (E-mail: subscribe@barnabasfund.org, 13/10/08). Pray for God`s protection over the Christian community in Iraq, and particularly in Mosul. Pray that the Lord will comfort them, and give them the grace to forgive their persecutors. Pray also that help will reach those in need quickly.”
    Father, we lift up Your children in Mosul and ask that You reveal Your mighty power and come to their defense. Encourage them and renew their zeal for You, Lord. Let them stand firm in their faith and be a strong witness to Your love, mercy & grace.
