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.

    Dear Father I pray that you would bind the enemy in Iraq. Put your arms of protection around the peacekeepers. Do not allow these who plot and kill to disrupt the peace. Be with the citizens of Iraq and let them see how much good has been done by our troops. May our troops always conduct themselves in such a way that the enemy cannot find fault with them.
    Bind the one who goes to and fro to see who he can devour. You are an awesome God and nothing is too hard for you to do. Bring an end to these wars in Iraq and Afganistan. I pray in Jesus name Amen.

    Father in Heaven, Holy is Your Name. I ask that You will consume the plans of the wicked with Your Powerful Hand. I pray that they cannot do any harm because You have tied their hands. I ask for blessings for the people of Baghdad; they have been through so much and lost so many loved ones. Help them to heal in body and soul. I also ask that You will provide protection for our troops. We have lost so many loved ones also.
    In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen

    We ask now that You will thwart the plans of the evil one. He comes to steal, kill and destroy, but You have come that the people of Iraq and other countries may have life and have it more abundantly. We ask for Your protection over Your people – and that they will be safe from all harm. You are powerful than any one can think. You have the whole world in Your hands. The enemy will not and cannot win this battle. It might seems that he is winning, but Lord we know that he is a loser from the beginning.
    You overcame sin, death and hell when You died on that cruel cross, and because of this the people of Iraq and other communities are in safe hands. We ask that You will send their Guardian Angels to guard them as they go about their daily chores, as they sleep and as they fellowship. Keep them as the apple of Your eyes – they are Yours. – Amen

    M. Thompson Says:

    Yes Lord: Scramble communications of the wicked and oversee clear communications for our Soldiers.
    Keep our Soldiers in your constant loving care.
    Keep peace reigning in their hearts that defys their circumstances.
    Let Your Peace disrupt any violent undertaking and give red sea deliverances to our Soldiers.
    Keep them safe Lord. Keep them safe.
    In Jesus Name I pray, Amehn

    Lord, we pray today for those in Iraq who desire peace. We pray for the soldiers and police who are guarding the cities. We pray for those today who are being led by Satan to carry out their evil deeds of destruction. We ask you to intercede on behalf of the innocent. We ask you, the awesome God of the universe to touch the hearts and minds of the wicked. You can change a man’s heart. We’ve seen it many times. We pray for those in the persecuted church in Iraq. We pray you will wrap them in your arms and carry they on wings of eagles. We pray for our military, men and women, in Afghanistan for your protection over them in this dangerous and hostile land. Thank you for hearing. In the name of Jesus, I pray.

    Dear Lord,
    I thank You daily for Your Goodness and Mercy which You have shown to the people living in the Middle East; especially in Baghdad.
    Lord, we realize that where lives are being saved, and people are being delivered, that the enemy of our souls shows up, to thwart the plans You have for mankind; I ask today, Lord, that You thwart every plan of the wicked ones, in Jesus name, I pray,
    Amen and Amen

    Father, I lift up and stand in agreement the prayer Jean’s has brought before Your throne this morning. May it be so in Jesus name. Amen.

  10. 498
    Jean Says:

    Great and ever gracious Heavenly Father, Your Word tells us in many ways and in many places of humans making plans and devising this or that means to usurp power and authority that You have never given to them. But the outcome of all things is in Your hands. I’m so grateful that this is so. In Iraq as in many other places of the world there are those who have little regard for others You have Created and a desire to bring about changes to society by means of force and control, one way or the other. My prayer is for You to intervene and to demonstrate that You alone are God, that You alone are sovereign over all the earth, and that such individuals can expect to give account before You for every murderous thought, every inflamatory word, and every destructive action taken in inordinate intentions to impose their will and their view of things on others. For them, as for all of us, the only hope for their souls is to repent of their sinful attitudes and actions and take refuge under the covering You have provided for those who have put their trust in Messiah Jesus. Meanwhile, Heavenly Father, I pray that You would have mercy on the potential victims of these purveyors of violence and of terror. Please scramble the communications of those bent on destruction, work miraculous deliverances for the weak and needy ones in Iraq, and elsewhere, and bring to nothing the plans and purposes of these violent individuals. For Your own Name’s sake. Amen.

  11. 497
    Dottie Says:

    Dear Father I pray that you would turn these around that are always planning evil acts. Father speak to their hearts and minds and confuse their wicked ways. You are the GREAT I AM and nothing is impossible for you.
    Today we have the news that many women and children were killed in a fire in Iraq. Father surround their families with your love and bring healing balm to their hearts. Once again it is beyond our understanding. Only you Father can know the out come.
    I pray for all these who are touched by this war. I pray that all of them could learn to love their neighbor as themselves. Lord please make a way in their darkness to come into the light. I pray in Jesus name. Amen

  12. 496
    Faye Says:

    Father in Heaven Holy is Your Name. I ask that You will confuse the minds of the enemy so that they cannot execute their plans to do violence. I pray that anyone who has vital information that will help the troops and the police officers find the hideouts of these men and women will come forward. Help to realize that if they help to eliminate the enemy, that it will help their city. Please take over the minds and hearts of the enemy and make them yearn for a better life than one of violence.
    In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen

  13. 495
    Jean Says:

    Dear Wonderful Father in Heaven, I am truly grateful to be reminded twice today, first in prayer fellowship, and now through today’s prayer prompt, that You are in control over all things. Nothing escapes Your notice, and You rule over all with wisdom, power and might. Hallelujah!

    I most surely agree with today’s request that You would bring to nothing the plans and purposes of the wicked, and all who might intend to cause terror, and perhaps to bring real harm. May all their plans fail and come to nothing, and may all their hiding places be discovered. May the evil plans and schemes they have devised be fully exposed before they have time to gather themselves together. I pray these things for Iraq, where efforts are ongoing to rebuild a sovereign nation and establish peace, and also for Afghanistan where today’s headline news reported a suicide bomb attempt against the Nato and American headquarters. I pray for the innocent Afghans who were hurt and harmed by this, and for those who have been shaken. May this in no way turn aside their resolve to liberate their nation from the violent oppressors, but rather may the result be to unite those who love peace into a stronger and more determined force to stand against evil in any way that it might try to manifest itself. I pray these things in the Holy Name of Jesus, Who laid down His life that we might live, and Who taught that insofar as you do it to even the most humble individual, you have done it to Him (Matthew 25:40). He takes it personally when weak or needy individuals, or His own dear children, are mistreated in this vile and sinful world. One day He will repay those evildoers in full, but for now He give the sinner room and time to repent. Let none of us presume upon His grace and His forebearance, lest we ultimately find ourselves condemned.

    “An oracle within my heart concerning the
    transgression of the wicked:
    There is no fear of God before his eyes.
    For he flatters himself in his own eyes,
    When he finds out his iniquity and when he hates.
    The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit;
    He has ceased to be wise and to do good.
    He devises wickedness on his bed;
    He sets himself in a way that is not good;
    He does not abhor evil.

    Your mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens;
    Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
    Your righteousness is like the great mountains;
    Your judgments are a great deep;
    O LORD, You preserve man and beast.

    How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!
    Therefore the children of men put their trust
    under the shadow of Your wings”
    (Psalm 36:1-7).

    Thank you, Lord for Your constant showing of Your faithfulness. Please, Lord, keep the soldiers and the innocent people of Iraq and Afghanistan safe. I know that sounds like a big order but with all things are possible with God!!! Luke one, thirty-seven. Please foil the plans of the wicked and let us see Your glory, Lord!!! Let us especially have victory in Afghanistan in the capturing of the Taliban that want to disrupt the election of that country. Please, Lord, give supernatural wisdom and strength to our soldiers and our coalition soldiers. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
    I love You, Lord!!

    Lois Says:

    Dear Heavenly Father, I come before your throne to lift up our soldiers, the Iraqis, and Afghanis before you. I ask that your peace to fall upon them. Give them courage and boldness in the place of fear. I thank you Father for the answers you have given and able to see plus for the unseen answers you are performing each day and night. I give to you your words to use against the enemies who are still planing violence against the people.

    Arise, O Lord, in anger! Stand up against the fury of my enemies! Wake up, my God, and bring justice! []The wicked conceive evil; they are pregnant with trouble and give birth to lies []They dig a pit to trap other and then fall into it themselves [] They make trouble, but it backfires on them. they plan violence for others, but it falls on their own heads [] I will thank the Lord because he is just; I will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High. Psalm 7:6 & 14-17 Bless these words Lord and I believe that you will allow this to happen the the wicked ones in Iraq and Afganistan. May the people there give you parise and honor for all you are doing for them. In the name of Jesus I pray and all the glory is yours. Amen

    Ann from AL Says:

    Prince of Peace we call upon you to bring peace to this area. The evil one has once again stepped up his violence against the innocent. Call them out by your Holy Spirit and expose the deception they have walked in. Show them the way out. Protect the innocent lives taken because of the kingdom of darkness. Give them visions and dreams of salvation and woo them by your great love into your glorious Kingdom of Light. AMEN

    Alice Carrel Says:

    ALL things we ask of You Father, are our wishes for our BROTHERS and SISTERS in Christ, it is YOUR WILL we pray to be done.
    Right now we lift up to You the EVIL ONES that holds Baghdad hostage.
    These poor souls have been decieved and have ALL understanding blocked from their minds.
    Those who are under this blindness do not recongize any longer or never knew it in the first place. They are not in their right mind, they cannot see or believe Gods help.

    M. Thompson Says:

    Dear Lord:
    You say that “The way of the transgressor is HARD.” But that the way of the righteous keeps shining brighter until it reaches the clearest Day.
    Therefore, cause the workers of iniquity and those who promote violence against our US Soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq be undone by the work of their very own hands.
    When they stand before you at Judgment Day they will have no excuse.
    Shine Your everlasting Light upon dark deeds today. Expose the plans of the wicked and demolish THEM.
    Fight for our US Soldiers today in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    Turn the tide of the Battle to the victory of the Just.
    Make the joyful sound of Victory to ring in the tents of the Just Dear Lord!
    Keep our US Soldiers in the Palm of Your Hand and show them Your Way and Your Salvation…..All to the Glory of God!
    In Jesus Name we pray. Amen

    Heavenly Father, Thank You for all you are doing in Iraq to build a democratic, free country. You know the needs of the people there and today we lift up Sadr City. Be with the Military and Police who are working to keep the county and Sadr City safe and secure. In the name of Jesus and the authority given to us through Your Word, we bind Satan and all demonic attacks against Iraq, the people and everyone working to build this Sadr City and Iraq to be the democratic and free Nation You want it to be. Let the light and spirit of Jesus fall upon Iraq, give the children, men and women spirits of peace, calm, hope and joy. Cause them to report all those who would do evil, and who cause them to become fearful, confused and leave Iraq in fear and fill them with love for Iraqi people and those helping the Iraqi people. Drive them from Iraq, we pray all in Jesus name praising and thanking You for Your love, and answered prayers. Amen.

    Dear Lord,
    We do pray that You thwart the plans of the wicked men and women in Baghdad, in Jesus name. Lord, I pray that You guard the innocent people, this day, that no evil will come nigh them.
    Lord, I ask for Divine Intervention in Afghanistan, and in Israel, to the outermost parts of the world, in Jesus name.
    Amen and Amen

    As you may remember, in a military theater, the National Anthem is played before every movie.

    This is written from a Chaplain in Iraq:

    I recently attended a showing of ‘Superman 3’ here (in Baghdad). We have a large auditorium we use for movies, as well as memorial services and other large gatherings. As is the custom back in the States, we stood and snapped to attention when the National Anthem began before the main feature. All was going as planned until about three-quarters of the way through The National Anthem the music stopped.

    Now, what would happen if this occurred with 1,000 18-22 year-olds back in the States? I imagine there would be hoots, cat-calls, laughter, a few rude comments; and everyone would sit down and call for a movie. Of course, that is, if they had stood for the National Anthem in the first place.

    Here, the 1,000 Soldiers continued to stand at attention, eyes fixed forward. The music started again. The Soldiers continued to quietly stand at attention. And again, at the same point, the music stopped. What would you expect to happen? Even here I would imagine laughter, as everyone finally sat down and expected the movie to start.

    But here, you could have heard a pin drop. Every Soldier continued to stand at attention. Suddenly there was a lone voice, then a dozen, and quickly the room was filled with the voices of a thousand soldiers, finishing where the recording left off:

    “And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh, say does that Star Spangled Banner yet wave, o’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.”

    It was the most inspiring moment I have had here in Iraq. I wanted you to know what kind of Soldiers are serving you here. Remember them as they fight for you!

    Pass this along as a reminder to others to be ever in prayer for all our soldiers serving us here at home and abroad. For many have already paid the ultimate price.

Send the wind of Your Spirit to blow across iraq. let Your kingdom come in that land. Empower Your people there. Fill them to overflowing with Your supernatural love. I plead the precious blood of Jesus over the lives of those who represent You there.

    In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name I pray. Amen

    M. Thompson Says:

    Dear Lord:
    Please thwart the plans of the wicked and the violent. May their weapons be their own undoing and let our US Soldiers and other Soldiers of our co alition be thwarted and become harmless.
    We know that the bloodthirsty men don’t live out half their days.
    They are the unhappy recipient of their own labors.
    Please protect and defend our American and British Soldiers. May they look to you always to be their God.
    In Jesus Name I pray, Amen
