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:

    Dear Heavenly Father,

    Through Jesus I come into Your presence. Thank You for this new day and the peace You bring into it. Especially I thank You for the peace that You have brought into Baghdad at a high and worthy cost. May those who sacrifice so much at all times be aware of the value of what they have succeeded at. Without sacrifice there can be no gain. That is the order of the world. We are aware that there are those evil doers still hanging around in Baghdad trying to fulfil their evil schemes. We pray You would thwart their plans. Let them be fumblers in the works of their hands. Do not let the internal workings of their bombs succeed in being detonated against their perceived enemies. Let the wiring of their devices be lacking the structure and continuity to follow through with their planned usage. Let any damage fall upon themselves. Lord, You are such a good and mighty One so we again call to You, “Peace, peace, please peace in Baghdad this day”. Amen

    Dear Fabulous Lord,
    What a time in History to be living, to be praying around the globe for a little country that in the beginning of creation figured so predominately then and now again.
    We have the Garden of Eden, situated betweeen the Tigris and the Euphrates Rivers, and the Tower of Babel where the occultic people tried to save themselves from another flood by a tall building, where You confused their tongues so they didn’t understand each other. Languages popped into creation fully formed. What an amazing God you are!
    Well, Isaiah 46 says you can tell the end from the beginning, so now we are in the end times and back at the beginning too so we know what you can do by Your former tactics.
    Will you please do the same to the enemies of peace? Even in Afghanistan? Please Father in Heaven, give them babel and confusion. Cause misunderstandings and confusion. Let them flee in fear.
    I know from Joshua’s battles that victories are won by You, and not having sin in the camp. So Lord, turn your heavenly gaze upon our troops fighting the battles, even behind the scenes.
    Let them come to You, their Father, and examine their lives. Let these American Soldiers be Soldiers of Your Army, doing Your Work as our government pays them! HA!
    Let our US Soldiers be Your Arms and Hands for the Iraqi people, embracing their wounded and their innocent children with love and compassion.
    Please let our Soldiers become born again believers and go to the chapel to hear more about You dear Lord and Your Bible. Give our Soldiers your Salvation. And do it speedily for time is something we need to redeem and not squander. These are the last days and Jesus is coming sooner than we think.
    “In a time that ye think not, the Son of Man cometh.” In Jesus Name we pray and believe.

    Father, we understand that there are those who don’t believe in You or Your Word. Father, we pray that You will open their eyes to see the truth. How can one believe in a cause that would make them cover their faces and hide their identities? Surely, in their hearts they are ashamed of what they are doing, but You know. They cannot hide from You. We pray protection for our troops, allies, the Iraqi police and civilians who yearn for peace. And as always, we pray for the peace of Jerusalem and we pray in Jesus’ Name. Amen

    FATHER, YOUR Word declares that YOU {WILL} take the hearts of stone and turn them into hearts of flesh (sofen and receptive to YOUR will).

    How these captives and slaves of hate so need YOU to turn their stone hearts to flesh…..to experience LOVE they have truly never known.

    As YOU have done for so many others (including Saul to Paul), we believe YOU can and WILL do this for everyone who is blinded by hearts full of hate, who call on YOU for help and deliverance….YOU WILL transform them by opening their blinded eyes and cause them to be free and filled with YOUR love that is eternal!

    Thank YOU that YOU ALWAYS listen and hear our prayers for the Middle East and all our precious Soldiers serving selflessly so that men and women may know true freedom and a life of peace…..given by the PRINCE OF PEACE! Thank YOU JESUS!

    All YOUR promises…..everyone of them….are YES and AMEN!!!!

    Judith Connell, Greenbank, On., Canada Says:

    This prayer to undo the evil thoughts in the heads of those who would kill the innocents of Baghdad is so timely. Satan is busy at this time of year trying to undo the joy of mankind that Jesus was willing to be born a human – the start of the full plan of God.

    Thank You so much Lord for this intervention again this year. You and Jesus and the Holy Spirit are my heroes!

    Stan and Shannon Says:


    We exalt your name and we pray your overcoming power of holiness and goodness to snuff out the wicked wicks in the lamps of the evil in Iraq. You esteem righteousness and will not let wickedness prevail. We are so blessed to be your children, your ambassadors, and your warriors! We know that satan is the most frustrated created being in all eternity because he is defeated and he knows his days are numbered! Lord you will accomplish all that you sovereignly initiate and we are willing vessels! Father, we lift our harps to You and praise your holy name! We fill the bowls with our prayers! Now Lord pour out your Spirit over Iraq over Afghanistan and over Pakistan! Pour out your wrath on the evil and pour out your love, mercy, grace and salvation over the peoples! Lord pour out your protective hedge over all our troops! Lord hear our songs of deliverance over the ensnared. Lord hear our battle hymns for those in combat and Lord hear our victory chant over the enemy!! Our war cry is for You!! Bless Israel and we pray for the peace of Jerusalem!! In the Name of Yeshua!!

    Judith Connell, Greenbank, On., Canada Says:

    As Christians we know how You speak to us through the efforts of the Holy Spirit so we can certainly understand how You Lord can overcome the evil thoughts of those who would cause violenced in Baghdad by the same efforts of Our Holy Spirit. We know as well that if it is Your will You will sidetrack Satan and his demons directly and for this we are truly grateful!

    Lord, if it is Your will, keep the problems of Pakistan away from Iraq. We know Satan just loves to mix it up. Bless those who have only peace in their hearts as well.

    Praise all You do and thanks to Your Son, our brother, Jesus for understanding humans as You do.

    Father, we thank You that the wicked will not succeed in their plans against this people and against this land. We trust You with the lives of this people..

    Jean Says:

    Dear Father in Heaven, please have great mercy on the citizens of Baghdad who have been caught up in the schemes of the wicked, most often without their consent, I believe. I pray that in Your mercy You will drive away those forces and powers that have been there to create trouble, pain and destruction and let quietness and rest return to Baghdad and to Iraq. Let it be Your will that is done, dear Father. Please hear the cry of the needy, and rise up in anger to oppose the enemies of peace. May the power that the evil one has been trying to hold over that city and that region be completely and utterly broken and may Your counsel and righteousness be known in the ensuing calm. May many come to know that You are God. May it be in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    Faye Says:

    Father God: We know that you are in control, but maybe things don’t happen because we are not praying and asking. So, now Lord, I am asking, if it is Your will, that the enemy be overthrown this day. I pray that a wall of protection be placed around all of the innocents in Bagdhad. I pray all of these things in Your Son Jesus’ Name. Amen. MARANATHA!!!!!

    Loretta Worthy Says:

    Father, The wicked will not prevail. Just as darkness cannot stay where there is light, wickedness cannot prevail where there is Godliness. We call forth goodness, honesty, integrity, love and mercy into Baghdad and we change the DNA of the evil stronghold into Godliness and holiness. Jesus came to undo the works of the devil. We undo the works of perverse militant thoughts in religious and political arenas. The peace of God that passes our understanding fills the hearts and minds of all inhabitants of Iraq and surrounding areas. Truth is revealed and accepted. Error is exposed and rejected. The Glory of God fills Baghdad, Iraq and all the earth. It is so by the authority of Jesus Christ.

    Hi Abby,
    Thank You that You stop the activities of the evil one. You laugh at his schemes and evil devices. Have victory today over all that oppose You, Lord. Bring justice to the fallen and recompense to the injured. We believe You, Lord, for You are worthy of our praise. In Jesus Name. Amen

    Mary Says:

    We are definitely seeing changes in Iraq and the Bagdhad area now, since June. I choose to think it’s the result of God’s people praying and I’m so thrilled to be part of this amazing undertaking. I love doing this everyday and feeling a part of a mighty move of God. I thank God for this ministry. May He continue to guide and direct His church to pray and intercede on behalf of the peaceloving people of Bagdhad and for all our troops there. Praise His Name!!!

    Dan Says:

    Lord, I pray that the church of Jesus Christ, the Body of Christ, would rise up and be strong. Lord, that Your called out ones would take their places of authority and bind the forces of evil. I call forth pastors and church leaders to give themselves to prayer in Baghdad. May they spark godliness and holiness in their city.

    Lois Says:

    Thank you heavenly Father for all your answers to our prayers. Thank you Lord for your mercy and all your blessings given to the Iraqis and our soldiers. Father, I come before you in agreement off all the prayers said today for our soldiers and Iraq. May it be your pleasure Father to put a COMPLETE HALT to the enemy and their plans of violence and evil. Father in the name of Jesus I bind the hands and feet of the enemy that they will fumble in ALL THEIR DEEDS OF EVIL. Father, I ask that you would release your love upon them, open their eyes to SEE, and open their ears that they may HEAR. Give permission to the Holy Spirit to work in their hearts and mind that both will be transformed into loving thoughts and deeds to everyone. LORD OF LORD AND KING OF KINGS continue to be our soldiers strength and stong tower. Help them to lean on you for wisdom and the power of your Word. Bless them and their families like never before. May everyone involved know beyond a doubt that you are there with them. In the name of Jesus I pray and say all Glory is yours Father. Amen

    Bobbi Says:

    Dear Heavenly Father, I agree with these prayers today, that You will defeat the enemy of Peace. I pray with my sisters and brothers Your Word from Ezekiel 18:20-22
    “…The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself. BUT if a wicked man turns from all his sins which he has committed, keeps all My statutes, and does what is lawful and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die. None of the transgressions which he has committed shall be remembered against him; because of the righteousness which he has done, he shall live.”

    Father, I pray that You will penetrate the hearts and minds of those who are deceived by the enemy, who are blinded by wickedness and violence. Take the blinders off their eyes that they may see their Deliverer, the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Turn this whole nation of Iraq into a God fearing country that would be a testimony of Your Grace, mercy and lovingkindness, to other Arab nations. That all the world would know that YOU ARE THE ONE AND ONLY LORD GOD ALMIGHTY that is not willing that any should perish but that all come into the saving knowledge of our LORD and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

    We trust You in this as we know You hear our prayers as we pray according to Your Word. “Whoever is wise will observe these things, and they will understand the lovingkindness of the LORD” PS 107:43 Amen and Amen.

    Tamera Says:

    Father God,

    You are the creator of all good things. May Your very nature which You have imprinted on the hearts of all humanity since the time of creation cry out through the voice of Your Holy Spirit in the heart of every mother, daughter, sister or neice, grandmother, every woman who is being recruited by lies rather than love, to do evil instead of good, to destroy rather than protect and nuture; may they see for themselves the lies that are before them and turn their hearts back to You and to the life mission to which You have called them and not to the voice of raging evil men who are debasing them further to become bombs instead of the women You have called them to be. Bless them with discernment of this lie and stand together against the evils that are destoying their own families. May the tears of their heart be tears of resolve to do good and not evil; to have the courage to be Your image bearer of peace rather than the image bearer of cowardace. May their every effort in the Iraqi cities, towns, and villages contribute to the peace, the hope and the future You have for them. I pray that they will no longer allow satan to use their anger for evil but rather to use Your Spirit to do good. We love you, Father and we thank you and ask you to continue to strengthen of all Your Image Bearers who are willing to give their lives so that this country might become grounded in freedom, not just democracy, but the freedom that comes only from You. Protect these warriors of freedom; strengthen their spirits with the power, wisdom, and discernment of Your own as they go forward in winning the race of freedom around the world and especially in Iraq; may they know that they are fighting for freedom not only for this generation; but for future generations You allow to be birthed; but most of all for the freedom that can be found only through Your Son, Jesus Christ; for He is knocking at the door of every heart on each side of this battle. May they listen and open the door of their heart to Jesus, Your Eternal Ambassador, and let Your peace that passes anything we can understand fill them with the fullness of Your Divine Love. Because of Jesus we can confidently say “Amen”.

    Janice Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    Where the evil are at work in Bagdad I pray, Abba, that you would make them fumble. Let their hands be ensnared by their twisted plots. Bind an unseen thread around their fingers so they will not move properly to advance their plans for evil. Let their feet trip them up so they can not make it to their planned destinations where they want to set up instruments for destruction. We are daily thankful for all the progress toward peace that You have brought about in Baghdad. Let it accumulate into a beacon of peace that You shine brightly to give hope to nearby regions and to bring glory to Yourself for the good You have done. Lord, we love You and find so many reasons to praise You and show off what You have done. You are the greatest and accomplish awesome feats that could come from none other than You. Through Jesus we pray thanks to You for what You are doing in Baghdad. Amen.

    Dottie Says:

    Dear Lord I am in agreement with this prayer completely. Bind the evil one. Give power to the peacemakers and keep them safe. Pray without ceasing. We love you Lord thank you for answering our prayers. God bless the troops. Give wisdom to the leaders. Protect the famalies of the troops and give them peace. We pray in your name Lord Jesus. Amen

    Lily Says:

    Lord: I remember in your word that Apostle Paul said that he had learned to be content in whatever state he was in, Lord it is not that we whole heartedly accept those places and situations where we are, but Lord we can learn to be content in those dry places.
    Lord, with You beside our troops of military,civillians and the like in Baghdad; each of them are more than conquerors; in Christ Jesus name.
    Lord this day reveal yourself to everyone in that country; protect each one of them this day.
    It is with Boldness that I declare ” that the enemy of our Lord and Saviour jesus Christ, hands are tied this day” in the province of Iraq.
    Lord You are greater than any force on this planet! Now Lord show forth Your Mighty Arms against our enemy,Today! in Jesus name,

    Kim Says:

    Dear Lord, I pray that the men and women fighting for peace in Iraq will have a chance to do your will. I know the families want their sons and daughters home and out of harms way, but to leave, as some politicians want for their own gain, is not what is best. Dear Lord, I pray that you will put into their hearts, and the hearts of the evil, that the military are there to bring peace to the land and not to just quit. I pray for their safety and the end to the evil. In Jesus’ Precious Name, AMEN!

    Lord please look after and protect our troops, direct them in their paths and make them victorious in their actions. Allow salvation to come to those who detest peace. Prick the hearts of the terrorists, and cause them to bow before you. Protect the innocent in Baghdad and allow their freedom and salvation from you to glorify you in every realm, I ask all this in Jesus’ wonderful name, amen.

    RW Says:

    Praise your name oh God of the universe. Thank you for all your many blessings and for hearing and answering our prayers . You alone can turn the course of this war and you alone can end it. We petition you today to stop the bloodshed and may the evil ones lay down their guns and the bombs be drenched with water so as not to go off. Give comfort to the weak, grieving, injured, children, elderly and those that have lost family and friends. We especially pray for the Dr’s and medical personnel as they minister to so many in such poor conditions. Help them to be encouraged in their efforts and allow many to live because of their knowledge and expertise. Thank you for the Chaplains and give them words from you so that many will come into a relationship with you. Open the hearts of many military men and women to hear your word and to understand it.Help them to act upon it and open their hearts to you. We thank you for this day and we commit it to you in Iraq as well as here and around the world. Thank you in the name of Jesus we pray AMEN
