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.

    Merciful Heavenly Father, how very great You are! How awesome are Your ways. Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that You would look with favor and mercy on the troops that are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, serving in a foreign land for the sake of others and to bring healing and stability to that part of the world. Please be with them at their right hand to give them success in what they are doing, and keep their feet from straying into areas of harm. Please guard their hearts to keep them true and focused on doing what is good and right and encourage their minds to know that their efforts will bring about good result and that they are supported by this prayer group and by the people of their homeland. May we hear of good things being accomplished through their efforts and may they always conduct themselves in a manner that earns support and respect. Please keep them safe and give them favor in the eyes of all. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Father,You watch over Your Word to perform it. Father, we speak the Word today over our troops, their families, the Iraqi police, our allies, and all those fighting for peace. We pray that our nation will turn from its wicked ways and back to You, O Lord. Our trust is in you. Amen

    Ann from AL Says:

    Father, we realize that we all sin and fall short of your glory. In time of stress and war, it would be easy to sin. Draw our troops close to your heart by your Holy Spirit and direct their paths. May they lean on You and not their own understanding and acknowledge You in ALL their ways. Protect them from the evil one and give them favor with the Iraqis, especially the children. May the Iraqis truly see that we are there to help free them from darkness and we are not there because we need anything from them. Let your light shine forth thru our troops, even those who don’t know You yet. Your Kingdom come and Your will be done in Iraq as it is in heaven on this day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Dear Father forgive our sins and trespasses aganist you. Forgive our troops for any offences they have committed. Father open the doors for our soldiers to be a witness to the Iraqi people. May they befriend the citizens and truly be ambassidors for you. We pray for an end to the war and for our troops to be reduced in number and the Iraq soldiers to be able to control the terrorists. We pray this in Jesus name Amen

    Heavenly Father, I ask for Your unmerited favor on and over all of our troops and the Iraqi police who are walking with a right heart and intent with our troops.

    I ask that You would place Your Angels of protection strategically around our troops and true allies. Protect and keep them from all hurt, harm and danger.

    In Jesus name, I pray. Amen

    As this new day dawns overseas, may this be a day when You are truly glorified GOD throughout the Earth. May satan and his evil regime be thwarted in every instance. Protect our soldiers and all who truthfully follow YOU! May all evil be brought out into YOUR Perfect Light and exposed for the evil darkness it is. Help us to always be grateful for your Love and Protection. In Jesus Christ’s Holy Name, Amrn!

    Renae Says:

    Dear Lord, I stand in agreement with all those praying for favor between our soldiers and the Iraqi people. May they continue to notice and appreciate all that is being done for them. May the walls of division, mistrust and hatred fall down and may trust swiftly arise. May this happen also between the differences of the Iraqi people themselves. We proclaim peace over this land and may eyes and ears be open to who Jesus Christ is and what he did for them on the cross. We ask for a mighty move of the Holy Spirit across this land to touch the hearts of many. In Jesus Name I pray for His glory! Amen

    Dear Father,
    We come to the throne room to ask for your intervention today in Iraq. We do pray for favor for our soldiers and the police who are helping to try and bring peace to this place again. I pray you would protect them from every evil scheme of the enemy. Let the plans be destroyed in Jesus name. Let them actually back fire on the ones who are trying to cause destuction and death. Let them know they will not win, they must give up…they will not succeed! We pray for you to give the peace-makers victory. Thank you most gracious heavenly Father. We love you Lord! Amen and Amen

    Father in Heaven, we pray for continued favor between our troops and the Iraqi citizens. We see, through pictures, kind acts and deeds by our soldiers for the little children who suffer so much. A little kiss on the cheek of a child by a soldier, a hug, helping to tie their shoe, playing soccer with them, holding them when they are injured and in pain and can’t fall asleep are all sincere goodwill gestures toward the beautiful children of Iraq – your children too Lord.
    To see a smiling child playing or touching one of our soldiers and having him smile back is a beautiful sight. So many of our fighting men and women have left their own children at home and they show affection and caring for the Iraqi children. We pray that the bond between our military and the innocent of Iraq continue and grow stronger day by day. Bless the little children Lord, keep them safe from all danger and harm. In Jesus name, Amen and Amen

    Thank You Father for this day. Please Father help the Iraqi people understand and remember the good intentions of America and the President. We didn’t go there for war we went to help them topple a cruel and oppressive regime and to leave the people with liberty. Liberty that could possibly allow them to have peace and to know You and Jesus . The war was not our idea or what we wanted. Protecting them and their liberty is the reason we stayed. Let this and all the acts of kindnesses and help be remembered. The sacrifices without expecting anything in return. We and other nations who care just because it’s right, it’s the blessing and grace we get (and learn to give) from You as Your people. I pray this blessing is spread to the people of Iraq and who will also have caring hearts just because. Please Lord keep the Holy Spirit with them to help them and give them caring hearts. Protect them Jesus from the efforts of Satan to intervene and help them know You. In Your mighty name, Amen.

    Lord, we also pray for the protection of our soldiers as the trust is gained. Lord, protect their minds and bodies. I pray that many will come to know you for the first time or that some will come closer to you through their tour in Iraq. Thank you for the many blessings you have poured on our soldiers and the Iraqi people and we ask that you continue to pour our your blessings. In Your Name, Amen.

    Father, We proclaim Godly attitudes and behavior in our troops and in the Iraqi police and we proclaim Godly favor for them as they patrol and protect the people and the country of Iraq from men of evil intent. They experieince great victories and supernatural turnabouts and miraculous breakthroughs in the midst of great impossibilities. They receive preferential treatment from the citizens of Iraq and no good thing is withheld from them. Attitudes, regulations, and rules are changed and often reversed on their behalf. The favor of God rests upon them immeasurable; it goes before them and surrounds them. They receive honor, respect, aid, greater victories,recognition and prominence. In Jesus’ Name Amen.

Lord, there is so much chaos in Iraq as well as all over the world, we just ask that the spirit of goodwill overcomes the spirit of evil and darkness. Thank You for the power of prayer and for the Spirit who knows exactly what needs to be in prayer Who intercepts for us to You. In Jesus’ precious and glorious name – Amen.

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    We can do no more than to ask for Your divine help through Jesus to bring favor upon the troops and police from the Iraqi people. You alone know where all the breakdowns in trust and allegiance are occurring. I pray You would repair those breakdowns and strengthen any weak spots before they cause any difficulties. Do not let feelings of resentment and bitterness from past mistakes fester and filter into current relationships. Heal the wounds of the past. Let all the good deeds be done for the right motives and let them be received with open and welcoming hearts. Let words of thanks be quick to come forth out of the mouths of those who benefit from the good deeds. Shower such goodness down on Baghdad and Iraq that You will be glorified that everyone is getting along so well for all good things come from You. Thank You for all the good deeds of this and everyday. Through Jesus, Amen

    Dear Lord:
    Please bring favor like a shield to all our Troops as they perform their daily assignment from you and their earthly commanders. Let this favor have sustaining properties and reach all the way to the hearts of the local people so that they will see our Troops in a beneficial light and be eager to cooperate in peacekeeping operations. In Jesus Name we pray amen

    Father may the acts of kindness and service to the Iraqi people be the “cup of cold water” that will open their eyes to the Truth. May your name be glorified and Jesus Christ be exalted this day throughout the land of Iraq and its surrounding nations.

    and neck from falling on the ice this past week
    and as I was pring that pain left and then as I
    pred for Bagdad the words restored and repaired

    troops be restored and given new strength to
    continue and be healed in body and relationships.
