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.

    Father, we look to You for everything. You are Maker of heaven and earth. You sit in the heavens and laugh at the plans of men. Father, we lift up our troops to You today, Lord, and ask that You protect them from head to toe, also the Israeli troops and our allies. We ask for a Spiritual Awakening for this nation and the world, Lord. We thank You for what You’ve done to bring freedom and a better life for the Iraqis. Help us to stand strong against tyranny and hate. You are Love. Help us to be more like You. In Jesus’ Name we pray, Amen

    Lord, I reject the Evil that is in Iraq and all the violence that is perpetuated by those who do not want peace, who want the complete destruction of Iraq. This is your land Lord, your city, your people. You will win this battle and I thank you in advance for bringing peace to the Iraqi people. Lord, protect our soldiers and coalition forces and bring them home safely to their families. And I thank you in advance for their safety. In Jesus name, Amen

    Father, the power and spirit of revenge is strong, but no one or nothing can withstand the power of You! Your plans trump everything! Break the hearts of those who seek revenge, who have hatred written on their minds. Your ways are not our ways, so we often don’t understand why things happen the way they do. But You have given us dominion over everything on earth, and with sin comes evil. Ultimately, though, Your plan is for good, not harm. Help us to bring glory to Your name! Don’t let us be complacent, but strong to defend You and to defend the things of You. I pray in Jesus most holy name, Amen.

    Jean Says:

    Gracious and Merciful Heavenly Father, I am so very glad that all things are in Your hands! Therefore, we can release all cares and concerns to You, as Your Word invites us to do (1Peter 5:7) and find the true rest that Jesus’ gives to us (Hebrews 4). Please help every believer to know and to realize they do not need to take on burdens You never intended them to carry but simply to walk with You, talk with You, and to entrust everything into Your wonderful and powerful Hands!

    Loving Heavenly Father, I pray that the people of Iraq will quickly come to realize that they are wearing themselves out and living a self-destructive life when they hold on to anger and seek revenge. I pray You would shut the mouth of every liar, especially that of the devil, the father of lies. I pray that You will expose every lie of Satan that has been leading many of the people in the middle east down the road of destruction, and may Your light and Your truth be fully known.

    Please deeply encourage Your people who are Iraqis today. Help them to look to You and to cast all their burdens on You. May they witness in their own lifetime how gracious and powerful You are to answer prayer and send deliverance when human reason would think it impossible to find any hope. May they find exciting days ahead of trusting You and serving You, and help them to be salt and light in their own nation today and in the days to come, pointing lost ones to their Saviour.

    Please be blessed, be praised and be honored in Iraq and in all the world today. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Precious Lord,

    Watch over our warriors.

    Watch over those in Iraq who truly desire a free homeland.

    Watch over the thoughts of those who plan evil and war continually in their minds. Give them a chance to see You and hear Your Words of Salvation for all who choose to believe. If they choose to not believe and choose to continue on their evil ways, confuse their thoughts, stop them from carrying out their evil plots and prevent them from influencing others to follow their evil ways.

    Surround our warriors and the innocents with Your Holy Word, today.

    ” O God the Lord, the strength of my salvation.
    You have covered my head in the day of battle.
    Do not grant, O Lord, the desires of the wicked;
    Do not further his wicked scheme,…” Psalm 140:7-9.

    Glory to Your Name!!!

    Dear Father I pray that you would bind the evil ones who seek to do harm to the innocent people of Iraq. I pray that the peace that has been accomplished by our brave men and women would continue. I pray for the leaders to have wisdom from you Lord and to seek you when making important decisions. Father Iraq is known in history as the city of peace, may it be restored completely to that again. May your will be done there as it is in heaven. I pray in Jesus name. Amen

    Dear Father,
    I come asking You in Jesus name to please break the evil spirit of revenge in Iraq. I know only You can take away the bitter feelings and give the people forgiveness, when they have accepted the forgiveness You hold for them. Please help these people to be able to let go and reach forward into the future. You hold so much more for them, than the vicious circle they’re in.

    Abba Father, I pray in the name of Jesus that you bind up the spirit of revenge and fill the hearts and minds of those empted of that spirit (not of you,) with love, peace and all of the fruits of the spirit. Father give them hope through these gifts and a knowledge without doubt that peace comes only from you.I have no idea how you could do this, but Father I know that your arm is not to short to reach down and touch those filled with such revenge. I pray this in Jesus name.

    Mary T Says:

    Father, we know that peace is one of the fruits of the spirit obtained by abiding in Christ. We are the branches. He is the vine. Apart from Jesus there is no peace. May You show Your grace & mercy today to the people of Iraq, Afghanistan, and the surrounding nations. May they experience the Truth through visions and dreams. Turn their hearts to seek You and You alone, Lord. We know that apart from You all of us would seek revenge. Have mercy on us Lord.

  13. 441
    Sherrill Says:

    Father, have mercy on this nation. We have pulled away from You. Our leaders no longer seek Your wisdom. It is popular to denounce You and Your commandments. We have forgotten Your warnings. But, Lord, don’t forget those who are putting their lives in harm’s way for this nation and for peace. Protect them and protect Israel from those hate them. We pray Your Will be done, in Jesus’ Name, Amen

    Jackie Says:

    Oh Father, everyone wants to see justice done and it is the fall of human nature to want to carry that out that vengeance and justice ourselves. These people in the Middle East need to hand over those feelings to You. Help them Lord to let go of revenge and anger. Remind them that You know the hearts of everyone and You will judge and repay. Today, give a leader the courage to say “stop, let us make peace”. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

    Yes, Lord, ‘Vengenence is mine, I will replay’. We declare this your word over Baghdad and over Iraq this day. Today is the day of salvation. We pray many will come to know your forgiveness.

    In Your word; You declare that:

    Lord, may the people dwelling in Iraq;Afghanistan;Israel and other people especially those having authority, learn to wait on You to do justice to those who practice evil deeds, in Jesus name, I pray,
    Amen and Amen

  17. 437
    Lynn Says:

    Father, yes, break the power of revenge in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and over Your nation Israel! Revenge and hate are strong emotions that are hard to break loose from. That’s why those who harbor them need You – Your grace and mercy to shower them away. Let random acts of kindness start up and the children learn from seeing others. Protect Your believers in the Middle East, and protect each of our troops as they continue to train and protect others. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

    Heavenly Father, Thank you, all praise and glory to you for all the victories and blessings you have
    given to us and will be showering upon us. As you
    word says, Jer.29:11 you know the plans you have for
    us and they are to prosper and succeed and have a
    good outcome. We stand on your word and are believing you will keep watch over all of us, espically the city of Mansur. We lift up Mansur to
    you Father, knowing you know the needs there. We
    pray you will intervene, and by working together with our Military and the Iraq Military and police and the people of Mansur, will create a wholesome,
    peaceful and safe secure city. We plead the 91st
    Psalm over our Men and Women and pray that you
    surround them with Angels to fight off any evil
    men or plots to do evil against the Military or the people of Mansur. As you know the hearts of the peolpe in Mansur, we pray you will do miracles and cause them to see the light of Jesus
    in our Men and Women and be drawn to join them
    in their efforts to strengthen the peace needed.
    Be with the children, women and men of Mansur,
    fill them with appreciation and desire to expose any evil plots or evil people, we know that no weapon formed against our Military will prosper.
    Keep you hand on our Men and Women and protect them. Send the Holy Spirit to give them wisdom,
    discernment and clear thinking that they would
    know your will and make Godly decisions to the
    safety of themselves and those they are helping.
    We know it is through serving others that we serve
    you. Thank you Father, bless each of our Men and
    Women in Iraq, Afghanistan, and throughout the
    world. Build and refresh their faith in you, that
    the peace and light of Jesus shines forth from them and ministers to those in need. These things
    we pray in Jesus precious name. Amen
