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.

    Lord God, I ask for an end to whatever prejudicial attitudes that exist between the Iraqui people and our troops, attitudes that hamper the devolpment of relationships that are helpful in the fight.

    Oh, LORD, i so agree with Dottie’s prayer, that we will not grow weary in our praying, and that the citizens of Iraq will notice the kind and protective acts of our soldiers, and spread the word to others that they may know the good intentions of our military and help them in any way they can. Father, i ask Your forgiveness for any complacency on my part where i should have been more diligent in my role as a BPP warrior. We have seen the bar rising on the number of soldiers killed in battle – help us to become relentless in our requests for the safety of our men and women who have so graciously given their time and lives to defend us. LORD God, we fall at Your throne in humility and greatfulness that You care so much about us that You would call us to partner with You as we stand in the gap for our soldiers. Help us to live up to the task, for it is only with You that we can. In Jesus name i ask and pray. Amen and Amen.

    Thank You Lord for giving Wayne this vision of a of forming a prayer team who has a burden for what is happening in Iraq,and its surrounding communities.
    We ask for a special edge around the troops that are expoused to various dangers daily.

There is nothing too hard for You Lord,and we are believing that You are going to do great things for this city.Help the people of Sadr not to be fearful,but to realize that You are the only True and Living God.There is none beside You and there will never be any like You.Comfort their hearts we pray,and give to them a good night ‘s rest in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ-AMEN.

    Lord God,
    I lift up all our troops in Iraq. Thank you for the favor you are giving them with the people of Iraq. Thank you for ministering to each soldier, marine, and corpsmen. I pray that their families back home will be at peace and supporting them. I pray that your servants in Iraq will minister your comfort, peace and love to their fellow man in the power of Your Holy Spirit, that Your name be lifted up and glorified.
    Thank you for the great work and transformation in the nation of Iraq that a people will rise up to praise you and give you glory. Amen!

    Stand with our troops and those working for a free Iraq.

    Shine Your Glory through the words and actions of our troops. Open the eyes of the Iraqi people so they see the goodness of our intentions. Bind up and heal any misunderstanding between them.

    Shine Your Truth through and expose those who sit and wait for an opportunity to commit evil against our troops and the Iraqi people.

    Shine Your Love so brightly that it protects our troops, brings lost souls to You and blinds those who refuse You so they can do no more harm.

    Psalm 10

    Dearest Lord:
    Thank you for these wonderful prayers today for our US troops. The day is almost over, and I hope the day has rendered it’s safety once again for our American men and women.
    Lord, I lift them up to you for your care and protection. Your provision for their every need, to sustain their lives with food, water, rest and a peaceful mind.
    Please feed their spirit man, their inner man, that needs nutrition too, but let them get the sincere milk of the Word and not false teaching that will lead their hearts astray. Lord, let them KNOW THE TRUTH and the TRUTH will set them FREE. In this they will be free indeed.
    I ask for freedom. Let the freedom that comes from faith be strong in each heart as You minister to our Soldiers Yourself and with your mighty angels. We decree this thing and it shall be so. In Jesus Name we pray! Amen

    Faye Says:

    Father God: I praise Your Holy Name. I pray today, Father, that the bonds that have been placed together between our troops and the Iraqi will remain strong. Jesus, let Your Light shine through the Christian troops that other troops and the people of this city see it and want to know about You. Please keep our troops safe. I ask for a wall of protection around them; please spare another American life, if it is Your Will.
    In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name I pray. Amen

    Heavenly Father I pray for the soldiers who are fighting the violence in Baghdad, whether they be American Forces or Iraqi Forces. Give them your shield of protection and lead them in the way You would have them go. Be with them in discernment that they recognize the signs of the evil around them. Please protect them.

    Amanda Says:

    Father I pray for this city and for what you have done in it. Forgive us for slacking off in our warfare. Help us to remember that it cost others their lives and country when we forget to wage the battle for them. I pray your angels and our military would take ground that was lost these last few days. Help us both to keep on our guard and be watchful each day. Open our spiritual eyes to see what is happening and help us to pray in the spirit.

    I pray for a red alert for our soldiers so they may not be caught unaware of the plans of the enemy. Protect them today in Jesus name.

    Joan Bowe Says:

    Heavenly Father, how awesome You are. Your love surpasses our understanding, Your mercy is new every morning. Praise You, oh Holy One. Lord, we seek Your mercy and grace to be granted to our soldiers there in Baghdad and all of Iraq, showing favor upon their lives and touching the hearts of the Iraqi people there. Let them see Your love from these, Your servants, Dear God. Let Your children there show them Jesus, not necessarily through words but by their actions. Flow freely through these dear soldiers and upon their hearts to embrace the people of this land so moving the hearts of the recipients of Your kindness that they will know they can trust them to teach and guide them. We ask this in the name above all names, the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    We try to be diligent in praying but sometimes we slack off. Please put us back on track. If we have sins that are putting a wall between us and you help us to confess the sins and get right with You before we make our petitions. I stop now for my own confession before I move on ………
    Please Abba again wash me and my brothers and sisters in Christ clean with the blood He shed on the cross so we can be coming to You with pure hearts to intercess for Baghdad. You are aware of the locations of all the troops and police in Baghdad and Iraq. I pray that each individual would be in a preappointed location by You where they can touch the hearts of local Iraqi people with kindness, goodness and love. Let the troops and police think of what good deeds they can do to help the people whenever they have some free time. Please let these good deeds be multiplied by all the people that are touched by the deeds so they too will want to be kind to their neighbors. You, Father, have been so good to us with all Your good gifts. If it is Your will I pray the goodness You set in motion in the world would continually be rippling through Iraq with goodness piled upon goodness. May all the people bless the troops and police with their favor for how their hearts are being touched. Through Jesus, Amen

    Sharon W. Says:

    Father, we come to you as your church on this earth. We lift our voices in praise and adoration of you and seek your blessing on the people of Iraq. We agree with your servant Wayne and ask that you bring peace to the cities and countryside of Iraq. Let the name of Christ be spoken freely. Confuse and confound the enemy. Satan has no power except what is granted by you so we ask that you speak and he will flee before your glory. We ask that the bombs and bullets that the demons throw will be turned back upon them. Let the guns misfire and the bombs fail to explode. Let the troops flush them out and capture them, don’t give them places to hide. Don’t let them find any rest so that they will grow weary of fighting and lay down their arms. In the name of Jesus we ask.

    Heavenly Father, how I praise you for giving us a new day to praise you for all the love and beauty you give us and to the earth. We thank you that we can come before you and bow down in humbliness and offer up all our needs, and that you HEAR EACH AND EVERY PRAYER. Thank you for all athe wonderful things that will be done this year through your divine and infinite power and love.

    For the people of Iraq I give them Your “Word” that is found in PSALM 30:5 “HIS ANGER LASTS FOR A MOMENT, BUT HIS FAVOR LASTS A LIFETIME! Weeping may go on all night, BUT JOY COMES WITH THE MORNING.

    Heavenly Father, for the troops of Iraq and for our troops I lay before you the “Word” found in PSALM 31 …. May they say these words in faith from the dephs of their hearts. “Lord You are my rock and my fortress. For the honor of Your name, lead me out of this peril. I entrust my spirit into your hand. Rescue me, Lord, for you are a faithful God. I am overcome with joy because of your unfailing love. You have not handed me over to my enemy, but have set me in a safe place. I AM TRUSTING YOU, O Lord, saying “you are my God”. MY FUTURE IS IN YOUR HANDS. LET YOUR FAVOR SHINE on your servant, IN YUR UNFAILING LOVE LOVE, SAVE ME. Lord God Almighty hide them in the shelter of your presence, save them from those who conspire against them. Lord, shelter them in our presence, far from accusing tongues. Love the Lord, all you faithful ones! For the Lord protects those who are loyal to Him, but He harshly punishes all who are arrogant. BE STRONG AND TAKE COURAGE, ALL OF YOU WHO PUT YOUR HOPE IN THE LORD! I proclaim in the name of Jesus that Iraq and Afghanistan will become your land and your people again. I SPEAK FORTH LORD in the name of Jesus that your LIGHT WILL SHINE DOWN UPON THIS LAND and that your “Word” will be heard. You will open up the doors that need to be open, and close all that you demand to be close. Bring forth Lord, your love, peace, mercy, and grace to these nations in the name of Jesus. Thank you for listening and hear my prayer Father, I give all the glory to you Father for you are worthy. Amen and Amen

    Father, we pray an effectual fervent prayer for our troops today. We ask that You protect them from the top of their head to the soles of their feet.

    Holy is Your Name and we are grateful for Your ear to hear our prayers daily on behalf of Baghdad and Iraq and for the many needs there. You Lord know exactly what needs to be done in order to fulfill Your purpose so we pray to You today and ask for specific things that will help change Iraq. Today Lord we thank You for the many service people who are serving far away from home and in a hostile environment. We pray Father that You would give them kind words and merciful acts to bestow upon the people of Iraq. Give them wisdom and discernment in dealing with the Iraqi people. Father we pray most of all for the Christian service people to let their light shine before ALL people so that all that they encounter will know of You and Your goodness and mercy.

    Almighty Father, we are so grateful that You are our God and that You are in control of all things. Lord we do lift up our soldiers to You and ask that you continue to bless them and keep them safe and hide them from terror and evil under your wings. We know Lord, that without Faith it is impossible to please you. We stand firmly in intercession in their behalf with our eyes focused on Your precious Son Jesus Christ as
    You work to restore all that was lost in Baghdad.
    Where there is death and destruction we know that You are the light of the world and we look forward to seeing restoration and Your glory unfold. In his precious name…Amen…

    Dear Heavenly Father,
    It is in You that we put our trust. We thank You for granting the soldiers favor with all whom they serve. Establish the work of their hands in Iraq. May the good deeds they do echo around the world. May their good deeds ultimately point others to Your goodness and be the force that propels others to worship You, our Mighty King. Thank You for empowering each soldier, each law enforcer, each peace maker, and each person whose goal it is to bring peace and righteousness to Iraq. Thank You for Your divine, supernatural favor and protection. In the name of Jesus, I call forth justice, peace, love, order, and total restoration in Iraq and Afghanistan. Amen.
