18-Unity Among the Troops and Police


“There was a period of time when coalition forces had to urge Iraqi forces to fight. That is not the case anymore. They are not only capable of fighting, but they want to fight for a sovereign Iraq.”
-Brig. Gen. Dana Pittard, commander, Iraqi Assistance Group, to reporters in Baghdad March 11.

Scripture: “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!” -Psalm 133:1

Prayer: Lord, You count the stars and You know them all by name. You measure the waves of the sea and place boundaries on its shores. You know the hairs on my head and the thoughts and intentions of my heart. Nothing escapes Your notice, there is no one else like You.

soldier_police.jpgLord, I thank you for the brave men and women of the Iraqi police force and army. I ask for Your blessing of unity to be on them as they work along side the allied troops.

I focus on the military operations today in Baghdad, and I ask for your grace and favor to be with teams as they go out: help them to move together in unity, and to function as one cohesive unit. Knit them together, Lord, into a solid force for peace, and give them victory after victory today as they patrol the city. In Jesus name, amen.

We thank You, Father for bringing life, health, peace, and prosperity to Dawrah today and in the days and weeks and months and years to come. Thank You LORD for the courage You have given to the Iraqi people to defand their nation and keep it safe. Thank You LORD that Your powerful presence is in the nation of Iraq and that it will be a model for the entire Middle East. Thank You that total victory will come to Iraq and the world will see that nation transformed as the leadership and citizens come to know Yeshua and His sacrifice for the sins of the world. Thank You Father that Iraq will become a beachhead for the world to have demonstrated before their eyes the power and conquest of love over hate, of humility over pride, of tenderness and mercy over destruction and death. You reign LORD. You are the King of Glory and the nation of Iraq will open the ancient gates and welcome Your presence. God of love and light may Your love and light penetrate the darkness of the world and cause many goat nations to become sheep nations who understand Your plans and Your will for humanity and the nation of Israel. May Your KIngdom come and Your will be done. MARANATHA COME LORD JESUS AND TAKE UP YOUR THRONE…In Your Name AMEN

    1st Chronicles 29:11-12 says, “Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all.” 12)Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.” I pray Lord that you would strengthen the Iraqi soldiers, give strength to our soldiers as well. Only through you do they have the victory. Strengthen and unite the Iraqi and US military. Let them stand strong together. For United they stand Lord. Bring them the victory in Jesus Name. AMEN!

    Heavenly Father,

    It is another day of patrols in Baghdad. It is another chance for the the military troops and the police to learn ways to act together in unison to increase the effectiveness of their actions. Where there are disagreements about how to maneuver let wisdom take over without the need for anyone to win in having their own way over the best way. Bless all the efforts to work together in unison. Let everyone involved recognize the better results from working as one force against the enemy. Let the Christians in the group shine the light of Christ brilliantly so that peace within the group will allow all to feel included in decisions and want to do the best at their assignments. Hear the prayers of the many who are united around the world in praying for peace in Baghdad. Through Jesus, Amen

    Dear Father in Heaven, I give You thanks for those Iraqis who have bravely presented themselves to the military or to the police in order to work for the recovery and healing of their nation. Please be with them today as they serve, often at great risk to themselves, putting the well-being of others and the needs of their nation ahead of their own. I agree with the prayer that there would be unity among them. May they find excellent communication and great support for one another as they work toward a common goal, and may Your will be done in Baghdad and in all of Iraq to the glory of Your Name. May it be proved that there is more power in unity than in the enemy’s attempts to provoke fear. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
