Scripture: “He will have compassion on the poor and needy, And the lives of the needy he will save.” Psalm 72:13
Prayer: Lord, how awesome are Your deeds! There is no one who is mighty like You. You are Lord over all the nations of the earth. You have made the heavens, the earth, and everything on it, the seas and all that is in them. Let the whole earth be filled with Your glory.
Lord, I come with boldness before Your throne of grace and I lift up the innocent people of Baghdad who are caught up in this struggle for freedom. Let Your hand of compassion reach out over them today, and protect them from harm. According to Your word, “save the lives of the needy.”
I stand with Christ against all those who would target the innocent in Baghdad. And for the duration of this hour, on this day, I say “NO Innocent Casualties!” This hour is a NO CASUALTY hour! Let the angels of God be dispatched to protect the innocent; and may the compassion and protection of the Lord fall upon their shoulders like a cloak of safety. In Jesus mighty name, amen.
