19-Break the Power of Revenge

Scripture: “‘For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity, to give you a future and a hope.'” -Jeremiah 29:11

baghdad-sunset.jpgPrayer: Lord, You are the God of love and mercy. Your compassion is over all Your works. Your thoughts are perfect, and Your acts are righteous always. You are faithful and true. You do all things well, and You have never failed on any of Your promises.

Today, I bring before You those who perpetuate violence in Baghdad. I ask that You would condemn the revenge they have embraced, and flush it from their hearts. Lord, I reject the dominion of revenge over that city, because that city belongs to You.

Let Your judgments fall upon the spirit of revenge that has ruled in that place. May this be a new day for Baghdad — a day of forgiveness, cooperation, and peace. Shut the mouth of the accuser, and give the people a new found grace to release the past and move forward in hope. In Jesus name, amen.

    Dear Father, I ask that Psalm 85 especially verse 10 become true for Iraq. In the place of revenge, I pray that Iraq will be a place where, ” Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.”
    I pray that You do this by YOur sovereign will and power, and You and You alone will receive glory for this.

    Dear Merciful and Gracious Heavenly Father, how wise You are, and how kind, to make a way for us that we might come to You in prayer. I pray for the healing of the land in Baghdad and surrounding areas so that spirits of oppression would rule there no longer. I pray that people who have been led by an attitude that supports vengeful behaviors would come to repentance and turn away from the works and powers of darkness. May it be Your good will that is done in Baghdad and the areas surrounding that city from now on. May the powers that bring oppression and bondage to vengeful thinking be broken and scattered away. Heavenly Father, especially in the learning centres I pray that You would shield the minds of young students from the poison of teachings that encourage hatred, vengeance and violent means. I pray the parents and community leaders would have wisdom and insight to know when this kind of teaching is creeping in and the courage and wisdom to stand aganist it and to put a stop to it so that the land might be healed. May it be so in Jesus’ Precious Name. Amen.

    Dear Father, I was a little disheartened when I first came to you today, hearing all the naysayers in the country regarding our place in Iraq. But as I realized the need for hope for Iraq in my own prayer life, I looked at the verse in the Prayer for Today, and I thank you for speaking squarely to that point, that You are giving Iraq a future and a hope. We’ve certainly seen your handiwork in many encouraging ways, and it will not be wasted. Thank you! You are so good! Continue to do your good work of creating hope for the peoples of Iraq and Afghanistan, encouraging them to push on to the freedom that can be theirs, because of You…then we pray You will now and ultimately be glorified through it all. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

    Lord Jehovah,

    Walk among our warriors today.

    May the Glory of Your Presence embolden their spirits.

    Illuminate and dissipate thoughts, intents and individuals who plot evil.

    Dearest Lord:
    Whether by design or default, I got my prayer assignment too late for the Soldiers to read it. But You will read it Dear Lord.
    Thank You for protecting the Soldiers and drawing them near to Your Heart of Love and Mercy.

    Lord, it is hard to “Soldier” against an unknown enemy, one that supposedly hates you for nothing you have done to them.

    Trying to understand that a Soldier is a target of a revengeful enemy must be unfathomable to an American Soldier who just went to Iraq full of good intentions.
    Please help our Soldiers to mentally, psychologically and spiritually sort out the situation they find themselves in.

    Please give answers to those seekers and give them understanding.
    If answers allude them then help them see themselves as missionaries, working for You, and that You are a just Judge and all seeing G-d and will mete out rewards for service “Well done”
    when the battles of life are over.
    Let the Soldiers take comfort that they are serving a Great King and G-d and their lives count for G-d’s Kingdom in every way. This is a very useful life indeed!
    Sleep well Soldiers and rise refreshed in the morning and walk with G-d, the Son, Jesus Christ the whole day long.
    Protect, guide and comfort our dear Soldiers, Lord. In Jesus Name, Amen

    Heavenly Father, i thank you for this day and for the love and mercy you show each day. You are our Sheperd, Banner, our strenght, and most of all our HOPE. On this I will present before you the scripture in Jer. 29:11-14a for your will and purpose to be done in the Middle East.

    Jer 29 read as: For I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me in earnest, you will find me when you seek me. I will be found by you”, says the Lord. I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes. LORD, I ask that these verse’s WILL BRING THE PEOPLE OF IRAQ, AFGHANSTAN, ISRAEL, and other countries in the Middle East to your light and ways.

    I DECLARE AND DECREE that the whole Middle East and Iraq will know your plans for them through the help of the Holy Spirit, which you will send down to lead and teach them of the “new future and hope” that comes only by You. I DECLARE AND DECREE that our soldiers will know and accept your new future and your new hope you will give them with delight and joy in their hearts. Father, I ask this in the Holy name of Jesus and May YOUR KINGDOM come and may Your will BE DONE on earth as its written in heaven. I give you all the glory and honor for answering all our prayers gone up before you today. Amen

    Psalms 8:1-2
    1 For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by a stringed instrument. O LORD, our Lord, the majesty of your name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens. 2 You have taught children and nursing infants to give you praise. They silence your enemies who were seeking revenge.

    Lord the sound of PRAISE, The majesty of your name fills Baghdad, Your glory Lord SILENCES your enemies who were seeking REVENGE. Lord I DECLARE in The Spirit that this word reigns, fills the air over Baghdad and Iraq today & tomorrows. Lord YOUR Glory shall prevail. No more getting even. I come against that spirit IN Jesus Name! Nothing or anyone can stand against the one and only Lord Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! You reign over Baghdad & Iraq!

    Holy God, Our Eternal Father, May Your Words of promise and truth and plans for a future and a hope for Your children be spirited into the hearts of the people of Iraq by Your Holy Spirit. May they grasp this hope, Your Hope, their only Eternal Hope to be free and safe and live in peace. Please reveal more and more glimpses of the peace and freedom that can abide between people and the Eternal Glory of Your Peace and Freedom. Yes, Lord, please let us all take the time today to look into our own hearts and surrender any spirit of revenge or prejudice or spiritual doubt.

    Thank you for softening the heart of the Anti-US Shiite Cleric Leader to call for a cease fire in his area of Baghdad. We pray that he will continue to listen to the wisdom You have planted in his heart so that under his leadership, the people will experience safety and peace may grow. We are grateful for his courage, which in his culture is normally seen as weakness, in taking such an unprecedented step for peace. May other leaders of the various factions also see that human revenge solves nothing and abandon it altogether.

    May we as your children, serving through prayer at the various continents we call home and those serving directly in the field, surrender our hearts to You and You alone and we pray the same for the Iraqi people. May our prayers on patrol reflect Your Love and our deeds be in step with Your Will as soldiers in the Army of our Lord. Through Jesus Name I pray, Amen

    Mary T Says:

    Psalm 35

    1 Contend, O LORD, with those who contend with me;
    fight against those who fight against me.

    2 Take up shield and buckler;
    arise and come to my aid.

    3 Brandish spear and javelin [a]
    against those who pursue me.
    Say to my soul,
    “I am your salvation.”

    4 May those who seek my life
    be disgraced and put to shame;
    may those who plot my ruin
    be turned back in dismay.

    5 May they be like chaff before the wind,
    with the angel of the LORD driving them away;

    6 may their path be dark and slippery,
    with the angel of the LORD pursuing them.

    7 Since they hid their net for me without cause
    and without cause dug a pit for me,

    8 may ruin overtake them by surprise—
    may the net they hid entangle them,
    may they fall into the pit, to their ruin.

    9 Then my soul will rejoice in the LORD
    and delight in his salvation.

    10 My whole being will exclaim,
    “Who is like you, O LORD ?
    You rescue the poor from those too strong for them,
    the poor and needy from those who rob them.”

    Loretta Worthy Says:

    Father, We stand in agreement with You that vengeance is Yours. We break the power of revenge, pull down the stronghold of hatred and violence. We call forth the Godly attribute of forgiveness and desire for repentence and rehabilitation of enemies. We claim whatever satan meant for evil is turned into good 100-fold. Father, Your ways have not been our ways, but they should have been and we declare that from this day forward, Your ways are our ways, Your thoughts are our thoughts and Your actions are our actions, for we have been created in Your likeness and image and we will imitate You as dear children.
    Thank you for your Love and Longsuffering and we ask You to forgive us for our slowness to grasp Your ways. Your glory fills the earth. We declare it is so in the authority of Jesus.

    Sharon W. Says:

    Lord, we give you honor and praise and glory for what you are doing in Iraq and Baghdad. We lift our hearts to you in unison against the spirit of revenge that lives in the heart of evil men in Iraq. We cry out to you to speak the words and bring peace and unity into the hearts and minds of these men. We have no might or strength within ourselves but you do, Lord. You and you alone made the earth and all that is upon the face of it. You made the seas and all the living creatures. You made man a living soul. Your word says that “the heart is desperately wicked, who can know it?” Won’t you come today and touch these wicked hearts and heal them once for all. We cry holy, holy, holy to you our God and savior.

    Janet White Says:

    Father, remove all motivation to do evil from the enemy, the terrorists. Fill them with a desire to spread good news instead of evil. Overcome evil with good.

    Like King Saul and like Balaam in the Old Testament, let the spirit of prophecy come upon them and cause them to prophesy good to the children of God. Remove from them the ability to do harm to anyone. In Jesus’ name.

    Faye Says:

    Most Holy Father, I pray that the enemy is so confounded that they cannot carry out their plans in Baghdad today. Please soften their hearts so they will stop this violence and revenge. I pray for good leadership to be working in Iraq so that as the people work together, the enemy will see how wrong they are. I pray for a wall of protection to be placed around the innocents and our military today, if it is Your will.
    In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name I pray. Amen

    Heavenly Father, awaken our hearts of the BPP! Call us to new zeal for prayer for Baghdad, Iraq, Afghanistan and Isreal! Crush the spirit of violence and revenge that longs to kill those who hope for peace and freedom, those who are serving to provide safety and protection. May this be a new day – may Baghdad become a city of hope, a city of it’s citizens working together, working with it’s soldiers and police to provide peace. May they see our soldiers as they are – heroes with hearts that long to help them in their struggle to become free. Bring Iraq to a democracy working for itself, destroying it’s own enemy, so that our soldiers will be able to come home. May Your will be done, may we seek to follow Your will, may all come to You. In Jesus name i pray. Amen and Amen.

  25. 229
    Irene Says:

    This prayer today IS going to work! I feel it in my Spirit—not only in Baghdad but everywhere there is evidence of the enemy’s interference with the victory Christ has given to HIS world! AMEN
