8-Favor for the Police and the Troops

Scripture: “And let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us…” -Psalm 90:17

Prayer: Father, we thank You that You are a God who hears and a God who cares. You hung all the stars in the sky and not one of them is missing. You know when we sit down and when we stand up, and nothing escapes Your notice.

soldier-helps-child.jpgJesus, we ask for Your help in granting our soldiers favor with the Iraqi people. Where there have been offenses, we ask for things to be repaired, and for trust to be restored and even increased. We ask that good deeds would not go unnoticed, and that those who are the recipients will tell many others the story of the goodness that was shown to them.

Lord, let the bonds of trust and partnership increase through favor with the Iraqi people. We ask for an atmosphere of goodwill to come down and favor that promotes partnership for a free Iraq. We ask for Your divine help, in Jesus name. Amen.

    Holy Father I praise Your Name. I ask that You would place a hedge of protection around our troops and the Iraqi police. Let them do their job with integrity. Please help them to locate the enemy before they can execute their plans. Help them to have faith and trust in You. I pray for those that are Christians may be able to witness to others in some way.
    In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name I pray. Amen

    Father, faithful and true Father, thank You for all the prayers of the intercessors on BPP.

    Your Word – a song from the soldier, King David – says, “But make everyone rejoice who puts his trust in You. Keep them shouting for joy because You are defending them. Fill all who love You with Your happiness. For You bless the godly man, O Lord; You protect him with Your shield of love.” (Psalm 5:11-12 in the Living Bible) In the KJV, this verse concludes with the words, “With favor wilt Thou compass him as with a shield.”

    Father, I want to bring to Your attention today all of the soldiers, chaplains, and medical personnel on my prayer list. And I want to bring to Your remembrance, particularly, Michael Artalejo, Riley Gehan, Eric of the Armstrongs, Noah Sedberry, John Robson, Brian Burch, Jimmy McKinney, Trac Palin, and Beau Biden. Bind them up in the bundle of life with Christ Jesus. Draw them unto You, and let the Life Of Christ in them reflect such love to others that the lost will come to You.

    I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

    Our Father and Our God,
    We pray for Your Favor to encompass our men and women in Uniform. Let that favor be a shield against all aggression and violence.

    Please speak to the violent today and say, “Peace, be still.”

    Thank you Lord for promoting good will, trust and patience between all men today in Afghanistan, Iraq and Israel.

    May they learn to look to You for guidance, protection and provision for you are a Faithful God of endless Supply.
    In Jesus Name we pray, Amen

    Heavenly Father,
    We pray for the commander-in-chief of the U.S. military forces through-out the world– Barack Hussein Obama. His choice to ignore the National Day of Prayer, to tell other countries the United States is not a Christian nation, to sign his first bill– the death of the un-born, does not bode well for this nation, nor for our American military. We ask and pray, Father God, that you would speak to Mr. Hussein, who so revered the Koran in his youth, that the true God in Heaven loves him, and wants him to be with Him in Heaven, but that his words and actions, his thoughts and spirit, must turn to you– to your Son Jesus Christ, and to the promptings of your Holy Spirit, which, thus far, he has chosen to ignore. Dear God, do whatever it takes to bring this deceived man to salvation through the shed blood of Jesus Christ! Amen, and Amen!!!

    Sharon W. Says:

    Lord, we ask in prayer for the military to have unit with the Iraqi people. Help the soldiers show the people that they can be trusted. Please send your Holy Spirit to begin work in the hearts and minds of the leaders of Iraq. We ask in the name of Jesus or Lord.

    Lynn Says:

    Father, I, too, thank You for Your blessings to us and how grateful we are for the sacrifices of our troops. Surround them with Your favor as a shield, Lord! Help the Iraqi and Afghanistan peoples to see their goodness and good motives. Help there to be good will between them. May our troops be light to them for You. In Jesus’ holy name I pray, Amen.

    Jackie Says:

    Lord we thank you for the freedoms we have in this country. You have blessed us so that we can be a blessing to others. Our troops are such a blessing to us and we have sent them to serve and help the countries of Iraq and Afghanistan.
    I pray for blessing of favor for our troops and the Iraqi and Afghan police as they go about their day. Go before them in all they do. Make their paths easy and straight today. May no harm come near them or any innocent person. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

    Sharon Says:

    Heavenly father,
    I pray for divine encounters for your followers in Iraq. Let Your kingdom come in Iraq and Your will be done. Bless Your servents with favor and opportunity. Thank You Holy God – Creator of man, the author of every good and perfect gift.

    Jean Says:

    Loving Heavenly Father, how Great You are! What a great comfort it is to remember that You are God Who makes covenant, and Who keeps promises. Today we are looking for an outworking of your will in Iraq, and for restoration of that nation out of the past troubles of corruption, war, violence and the persecution of Your people. Today we are also remembering the service of the troops who are serving there at this time, and those serving in other parts of the world. Please help each member of the forces to consider their position under Your authority and to set their hearts and minds on doing what is right. Please refresh the weary ones, and comfort those among them who deeply miss their loved ones, and those who have seen and experienced many of the very troubling aspects of war. I pray that You will restore souls and encourage service and well-doing. I pray that as the troops apply themselves to seeking righteousness and serving others with compassion that the good deeds they have done will be noticed, understood and appreciated and that they will win favor and support from those they are serving. May all this result in opening doors for the establishment of peace and good government in Iraq, and in any other location in which the troops may be serving. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Dear Lord:
    We are all so full of wonder and gratitude at seeing before our eyes the answer to our prayers in Iraq. Who would doubt now the power of prayer? It has changed the course of Iraq and is ending the involvement of our precious US SOldiers.

    Amen, Lord. Thank you that you’ve given Wayne the mind of Christ (1 Cor. 2:16). I thank you that you’ve made us unique to serve you – each one able to reach those you put in our paths. Thank you, Father, for the soldiers who know you as Savior & Lord, who live lives of integrity & humility. May you use their lives as a fragrant offering to draw many other soldiers and Iraqis into your kingdom. Thank you, Father, for the shed blood of Jesus which we commemorate tomorrow; for his leading many captives free; for the glorious resurrection we celebrate on Sunday. Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.(Ps. 90:12). Be glorified today, Lord.

    Thank you for every prayer that has been answered for the people of Iraq. Thank you for every soldier who fought and some who gave their lives for the freedom of these people. Don’t let it be in vain. Open the doors of Iraq so that fathers, mothers and children will know the truth of your word. Let them hear the message of salvation and let them come to you for forgiveness. Touch the hearts and minds of the leaders, let them dream and have visions of Jesus. In His name I pray.
