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.

    Our dear Lord God, how wonderful to turn to You and think of Your majesty, wisdom and power. Lord, we pray for the enemy in Baghdad to be confounded and for peace to grow and spread all around the city. Lord, protect our military and give them wisdom and discernment to reach out to protect others. Lord, teach all who are your workers and magnify good in the region. We priase You and thank You. Amen.

    “Jesus, Jesus, Lord to me. Master, Savior, Prince of Peace, Ruler of my heart today, Jesus, Lord to me.”

    You ARE Lord, and there is none other. We bow to Your Lordship, and ask that You would cause other knees to bow and other tongues to confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father. Let them see Jesus high and lifted up with His train filling the temple. Let all else fall away from their vision, that they might be ushered into the Presence of the King never to depart. Hallelujah! Lord! Amen.

    Father, I ask that, like the Egyptians in Moses’ time, that the terrorists would begin to pour out their wealth on God’s people. Let them see Your awesome power and protection upon those who love You, upon Your people. And grant them grace and liberty to repent of their unrighteous acts.

    We release the Spirit of Good News to Iraq and to the Iraqi people, even to the terrorists!! In Jesus’ name. Amen

    Heavenly Father, We praise and glorify your name above all elase. Thank you for your wisdom and direction and your Holy Trinity! Oh God, as it is written: Ps. 7:11-17

    “God is a just judge, And God is angry with the wicked every day. If he does not turn back, He will sharpen His sword; He bends His bow and makes it ready. He also prepares for Himself instruments of death; He makes His arrows into fiery shafts.

    Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity; Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood. He made a pit and dug it out, And has fallen into the ditch which he made. His trouble shall return upon his own head, And his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown.

    I will praise the LORD according to His righteousness, And will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.”

    This is my prayer today for all of Iraq. In Jesus’ Precious Name – Amen!

    Heavenly Father,

    Through Jesus I pray You would thwart the plans of the wicked, evildoers in Baghdad and Iraq today. Give them no success, only give them frustration because their plans are not working out as intended. Keep them steady on Your path instead of the path of their own making. You are so great and mighty Lord and able to do more than we can think or imagine. You are in control and I ask that You would do something with the enemy and their plans so that they are not disrupted for just this day but forever. Do not let them continue to perpetrate destruction in Baghdad and Iraq. You know how they have no regard for life so that they will even be suicide bombers. Surely the devil has hold of them for them to think more highly of death than of life. Please release the hold of the devil upon their souls and let them please see the light of Jesus. You have some way to do this God, I know it and I ask You please to hasten with Your plan to take them back from the devil. May Your exceedingly good will be done and please help us to be patient to wait on You for You do know best. May You be glorified by Your good works. Again,through Jesus I pray. Amen

    Father God, I praise Your Holy Name. You alone are in control of the situation in Bagdhad and even throughout our world. I ask that You will confuse the enemy and destroy the plans that they have made to do violence. Let the Holy Spirit enter their hearts so that they will stop their wicked ways. Please place a wall of protection around the innocents of Baghdad and our military. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen

    LORD, the enemy cnnot stand in Your presence. I invite You to fill the entire nation of Iraq with Your presence. I pray for open hearts and minds to receive truth and the Holy Spirit all over Iraq. The glory of God has filled Iraq and flows out from people to every facet of Iraqi culture. No longer can the enemy cloud the minds and hearts of the people of Iraq. Freedom has come to this people. Jesus is appearing to people daily and nightly and transforming their hearts and minds. The enemy’s plans are not only thwarted, they are uprooted and brought to nothing. Every plan is made null and void. The Light of God, the Love of God and the Truth of God have filled Iraq and the Spirit of God has free reign. No enemy can stand. No enemy can prosper. The glory of God has filled Iraq. We declare it is so in the authority of Jesus.

    Father, help us to not be deceived by the enemy, either internal or external. Make Your Will plain to us. We ask that you protect our troops, both at home and afar, protect our allies, and all those who are fighting for peace. In Jesus’ Name we pray, Amen

    Father thank You that You have a hope and a future planned for us, even as we are in this fallen world. Thank You that it is such a glorious future that we can not even imagine it! We pray together in agreement for the protection of the innocent, our soldiers and soon coming peace in the region. Thank You for hearing our prayers as they come up before you as incense. Amen in the name of Jesus.

    Lynn Says:

    Dear Father, i stand in total agreement with today’s prayer and with all my heart ask that You would stop the plans of the enemy. Cause confusion in their camps, cause their bombs or other desctructive devices to backfire onto themselves, or even better, change their hearts from seeking hatred and violence to long for love and peace. Stop the killing and injury to the innocent victims. Stop the killing and injury to our soldiers. Again, Father, we look to You because it is a seemingly impossible situation, and You are the only One who can turn things around. Thank You for being God of the impossible and that we can have confidence in You. It is with this confidence that i pray in Jesus name, and ask for Your mercy and justice to prevail in Iraq and Afghanistan. Amen and Amen.

    And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow,nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away” Rev 21:4

    Father God, we know THE WAR has been won. We know that YOU are in control. We know that all things work together for those that believe in YOU. Father I pray that my brothers and sisters in Christ know YOUR peace and comfort in excess during this season in their lives. I pray in Jesus name a hedge of protection around each and every soldier– that the arrows of the enemy not destroy their trust, their confidence, their peace in YOU. That this battle only increases their faith and trust in you.

    James 5:11 Indeed we count them blessed who endure…

    Sabrina Says:

    Heavenly Father, thwart the plans of the wicked today. Let them not prosper in their wickedness. Let those who are a part of their schemes begin to start leaving their regime right now. And let them never return.

    Let this day be a new day of wickedness being exposed, no matter who, are where they are. Father protect those who are innocent.

    In Jesus name I pray. Amen

    Dearest Lord:
    Thank you so much for the discernment you are giving our fighting men.
    These are the strong men of our country, sent to fight in a strange land, far from loved ones. Torn from their families and country and everything familiar and loved.
    They have to face death minute by minute.
    They desperately need so much, but three things I wish to request at Your Holy Throne Room Today:

    1. Proper rest and nutrition
    2. Spiritual and psychological help from REAL pastors, not false teachings, the GOSPEL undefiled and un-paraphrased and edited by man, the King James Version, Authorized.
    3. An alert, balanced mind that is discerning of safe areas and dangerous zones. An open ear to hear, “STOP”….”GO”.

    Yet Lord in a vision You have shown me that this is a season of revival. Of course, You would not allow this except Your Word says: Your Kingdom, which does “suffer violence, and the violent take it by force.” Here we see this firsthand!

    Shortly we celebrate your Betrayal, Humiliation on a cruel excrutiating Cross, and DEATH.
    But You descended into Hell and seized the Keys of Death and Hell from our Arch Enemy, the Devil.

    You ascended on High with those Keys Lord Jesus and live to ever make intercession for us, our Lawyer in the sky!
    You sit at the Right Hand of the Father, and He gives You whatever You ask because You were obedient even unto death.
    I ask mercy and salvation for our Soldiers Lord, who have given up so much, and give so much and hear of so little thanks.
    Be with EACH Soldier today, monitoring their every move. Help each Soldier STAY ALERT, be strong, confident, but deep in their hearts and soulds give them peace, peace, peace.
    Soldiers: Ephesians 6: Put on the Whole Armor of G-d, and go. No matter what you will be ok for you go with unseen angels and G-d’s eyes are upon you.
    We send each of you Love from us here in America. From Jesus’ Heart, amen

    Let the explosion be the explosion and fire of God. Dear Lord, put your mighty hand in place and stop those who bomb. Show them Yourself. Be there light and Life. I thank you for what you have done and are doing. You are so gracious and compassionate. Ther is none mighty like You. May praise break out in the streets, for it is a mighty weaponand there is no equal to You.

    Lord God, the suicide bombers that move insidiously throughout this city have been led to believe that it is an honor to die for their cause — that they will become martyrs worthy of reward. This is a lie, and we know it, but they do not. Open their minds, Lord, to be able to question this, and to realize that the One True God is a God of peace, not of violence and hatred, and that the reward He offers is eternal peace. In Revelation you tell us about the souls of those who were killed because they had held firm in their witness to the Word of God. They have died for the sake of Christ Jesus and His Kingdom. But they have not taken the lives of others in order to gain this martyrdom. Please, Father God, reveal the difference between being a vicious killer of innocent people, and standing firm in persecution for the sake of others, saving them… not killing them. May every person from this day forward who straps on a bomb to be a suicide bomber be made aware of the truth, through Jesus Christ.

    June Says:

    Lord God, Your word tells us that you always have your eyes upon us. You search for us and you discern with your clear vision what is evil and what is good. Keep your eye upon all those who strive to protect, save and rescue innocent people from evil. Give them your vision, give them your insight, give them your Holy Spirit to do the work you have called them to do. Send you Holy Angels ahead of them and clear a path so they may work within your realm of protection and bring others into it. I ask this for the sake of the building up of your heavenly and holy kingdom. AMEN

    Joan Gintella Says:

    Lord, I come to you today asking for safety for our soldiers who are fighting for peace in all of Iraq and Afghanistan. Someone mentioned the song Precious Lord Take My Hand. What a wonderful prayer for our soldiers. Lord we say the words of this beautiful hymn and may it apply to our fighting men and women who are in harms way each and every day. I ask that you dispatch your angels and put them around our soldiers as they walk the streets looking for insurgents, as they go into battle, as they eat and sleep. Be with them as they go into homes and let there be trust between the citizens and our soldiers. Give them strength when they are weary, food when they are hungry, knowledge and discernment when they don’t know which path to take.

    May the words of this beautiful hymn be our prayer not only for our military and for the innocent men, women and children, but for all of us on the BPP. In Jesus name, Amen

    Precious Lord, take my hand,
    Lead me on, let me stand,
    I am tired, I am weak, I am worn;
    Through the storm, through the night,
    Lead me on to the light:

    Take my hand, precious Lord,
    Lead me home.

    When my way grows drear,
    Precious Lord, linger near,
    When my life is almost gone,
    Hear my cry, hear my call,
    Hold my hand lest I fall:Take my hand
    Precious Lord, Lead me home

    When the darkness appears
    And the night draws near,
    And the day is past and gone,
    At the river I stand,
    Guide my feet, hold my hand:
    Take my hand, Precious Lord
    Lead Me Home

    Words: Thomas A. Dorsey, 1932.

    Father, I lift up to you the people of Sadr City, Baghdad and greater Iraq. Abba, thank you for the good reports we are hearing, of the Al Qaeda letters found detailing their loss of forces and the fear that has risen among them. Abba, keep sending them into flight, scatter them that they may not regroup and work terror in another part of the world. O Abba, mighty to save, put your shield of protection around our soldiers and the Baghdad police, keep directing them away from bombs and ambushments. May those men know of a surety in their hearts that it is you and you alone who have saved their lives. Cause them to worship you – really worship you – committing their lives to you forever and be true servants of the most high God for the rest of their lives. Thank you also for protecting the innocent Abba. Thank you for your angels watching, guarding and saving at this very minute and on through their days. Father I especially ask for your mercy to be shown to our country. Cause the wicked who are greedy and love sensuality and darkness to repent and see that they dance at the edge of hell. Cause them to see that the spiritual world is very real and the decisions they make here on earth are far reaching: to accept you as Savior and serve you as Lord and go to heaven, or reject you and serve the devil and go to hell forever with unimaginable torment. Cause our nation to repent Lord! Blessed be the Lord God Most High forever and ever. In Jesus Name I ask these things. Amen.

    Father God, I ask You to bless the people of Sadr City today. Bless those who desire peace and prosperity in their land and thwart the plans of those who want to kill and destroy innocent parties. We thank You for wrapping Your loving arms around our military troops who are traveling those unsafe roads. Continue to bless them w/wisdom and discernment of what is ahead of them. We thank You for the wonderful praise report of alertness that You gave to our troops a few weeks ago. We know Your angels were there to help them; bless You, we love You Lord w/all of our being…….in Jesus precious name. I pray.

    Dear Father you died for all of us. May the ones who are doing awful acts of bombing and killing some how be made to know you and what you have done for all mankind.We love you Lord and thank you for all the answers to our prayers. Please save those who are not yet in your fold. Father bind those who seek to harm the innocent. May you confound them and make them turn from their killing. Give wisdom to those who are in power and are seeking to bring about peace. We pray this in Jesus Holy and precious Name. Amen

    Lynn Says:

    Lord Jesus, i stand with my brothers and sisters in Christ and say – Thwart the plans of the wicked! May Your justice prevail and their plans backfire into their faces, Father. Keep each one of our soldiers in Your mighty protective hand, to bring them safely home. Father, i have also noticed that recently i have not seen the names of some of Your faithful Baghdad Prayer Patrol children in the list of prayers(comments). I ask, Lord, that You would grant blessings and protection on us, that anyone of us who needs an extra dose of prayer, peace, health, protection would get it by Your right hand. May they know we are also praying for them. In Jesus’ precious and holy name, Amen and Amen.

    Jean Says:

    Dear Father in Heaven, I pray for peace to come to Baghdad and to all of Iraq. Dear Father, I pray the the plans and efforts of the wicked will fail, and that You would grant good success to everyone working for peace. Heavenly Father, help us to not grow slack in our praying at this time. I pray the for believers in Iraq. Many have suffered great loss because of this war and seem often to be forgotten by those planning the future of that nation. Help them to not lose heart but to be encouraged in You. May they find true fellowship and sound teaching of Your Word to strengthen and enable them and may they see Your hand at work to help them. May they be encouraged today. In Jesus’ Precious Name. Amen.

    Precious Lord:
    Take each US Soldier’s hand, lead them on, help them stand. They are tired, they are weary, they are worn. Lead them on…
    Lord, I don’t know any more words to that song, but I pray that song into the lives of each US Soldier. You know the other words and apply those I don’t know as well.
    Keep each Soldier safe from harm so they may sleep with your angels encamped about them, making a hedge of protection the evildoers cannot penetrate. I pray a Zachariah 2 hedge of fire around them that is enemy proof.
    When our Soldiers awake to face another day of war and carrying out YOUR assignments given by the company commanders; let it be a victorious mission without any harm to our Soldiers, or Baghdad’s innocent.
    May those who plow mischief reap the same but those whose hearts are set on You and the good, let them escape all evil.
    I plead the Blood of Christ against all the demons of Hell that try to harm today these folks: my countrymen and Iraqi’s innocent. Dark spirits BE GONE in Jesus the Christ’s Name and Power! Release them and let them go in freedom for Christ’s sake, Amen.

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    You are on top of everything that happens in this world. You know the plans of the wicked in Baghdad. Their evil ploys and devices do not escape Your notice. I pray, through Jesus, that You would thwart their plans. Keep their weapons and bombs from firing. Let the materials used in their devices be of inferior quality so that they are not effective as they would intend. Please let their guns be the equivalent of toy guns so that when they pull the triggers nothing happens. God, I thank You that there have been many instances already of which we are unaware when You have thwarted the plans of the wicked. Thank You for the numerous lives You have saved. And thank You for how many You will save because we have made our prayers known to You today. We are gathered, two or more, in Jesus’ name as the Baghdad Prayer Patrol…please today thwart the plans of the wicked in Iraq. Amen

  25. 183
    Dawn Says:

    Oh, yes, Lord, let the evil ones be ensnared by their own hands. Let that apply more and more every day to those who bring destruction and care not that they hurt their own people and their own country. And Lord, take away their supply of head coverings so they will be seen. Thank You God, Amen
