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.

    Lord, , yes, vengance is Yours! We claim Baghdad as Yours! Release Your warring angels to take down the evil ones there. Break the spirit of revenge and violence so Love can enter, so Jesus can claim hearts and minds, so hearts and minds can claim Jesus as their Saviour! Protect our soldiers, Lord. Give them safe passage always. Help all to see the goodness they bring. I pray in the holy name of Your Son, Jesus, Amen.

    Dear Lord
    I come before You this day, thanking You for Your goodness and mercy to us all:
    I thank You that in Your word, You declare that Vengeance belongs to You, and that You will repay;
    Lord, I ask that You break the power of revenge in each of our lives, and most importantly in the lives of our Leaders and those Leaders in foreign nations.
    Lord, we realize that these men and women living in War torn nations, are under a lot of pressure, as they seek to survive in unstable conditions.
    Lord, I ask that as their hearts and minds turn to you, that You will keep these men and women (in Baghdad), in perfect peace.
    Lord, remember Israel this day, and keep the citizens safe and Blessed by You, Jehovah Nissa, our Banner:

    ROMANS 12:19 — Dear friends, never avenge yourselves. Leave that to God. For it is written, “I will take vengeance; I WILL REPAY those who deserve it!”

    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 Father, God, I ask that the spirit of revenge would be condemned and that YOU WILL FLUSH it our of their hearts. Lord, let YOUR JUDGMENTS fall upon the spirit of revenge that’s ruling over Iraq. Lord Jesus, give the people of Iraq the boldness and freedom TO ASK YOU to take vengence over those who deserve it. May today become a BRAND NEW DAY of forgiveness, cooperation, and peace. CLOSE UP THE MOUTHS of those who are accursers; and give the people of Iraq a new found grace to RELEASE THE PAST and move on forward in the HOPE given by your grace and mercy. In the Holy name of Jesus I pray. Amen and Amen

    All praise, honor and glory be to Your Holy Name, O Lord God Most High! How awesome it is that You are a God near at hand to hear the whispered prayers of our hearts, and You are a God far off to bring about the answers to our prayers when we intercede for people and situations far away. How glorious You truly are. Thank You, so very much, for answers to prayer. Help us to always pray, and to never, ever give up. Situations that appear hopeless from our points of view are easy for You, and so, with the help of Your Holy Spirit, I am able to humbly give You thanks. Thank You.

    Today we are praying for an end to strife and violence in Iraq, especially that which is caused by bitter, vengeful individuals. I pray that today You will strengthen everyone in the area who seeks and loves peace, and help such ones to take heart that You will bring about what is needed as they continue to trust in You. For the violent and vengeful, I pray that You would break up alliances, destroy sources and/or lines of supply, and draw out the things that have been hidden in darkness. May they find no place in which to plan their evil schemes in secret. May the authorities and the troops in the land do everything in their power to ensure the safety of the citiens of the land, and among the violent ones for whom we ask that they be made known, may there be those who repent from the heart and turn to put theh. This is requested in the powerful and wonderful Name of Jesus. Amen.

    Thank You Lord that You have Mercy abundant for the people of this nation. Send conviction to the hearts of the wicked. We know that Your the God of the impossible and it can be done. Cause the wicked to abandon their evil ways and repent.
    For the time of Your return is near. This life is like a vapor, here one second and gone the next! Have Mercy on the lost souls and send the truth in anyway You know they can understand. Help them to embrace the truth of Your word and leave behind all false teachings.
    We believe that this will happen. You said in Your word: If we ask in faith, in the Name of Jesus is shall be done. So we’re standing on Your word and asking in the Name of Jesus Christ that it shall be so! Amen

    Elizabeth T. Says:

    Dear Lord:
    I am so relieved to know that your eyes are on the faithful in the land and that your Word says that you “hate six things, yea seven.”

    Several of those 7 things you “hate” is a proud look, a lying tongue, feet that run to do evil, and another is “spreading discord among the brethren.”
    We know that you are “The Prince of Peace” but that also in the Book of Romans Chapter 12 us You, Jesus say: “Vengence is mine sayeth the Lord, I will repay.” Vengence is only yours and not ours at all.

    “Violence and pride adorn the necks of the wicked” you also say in Proverbs and that your plans for these people are a short life. May we not fall into the hands of wicked violent men but always stay within Your eternal watch and care.

    Help us all now to turn to Your Word, get the assurance we need for our safety and peace of mind and obtain the power to overcome in all adverse situations.
    Please dear Lord, direct our feet and we will follow YOU all the days of our lives.
    In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.

    Ann from AL Says:

    Father, we are in agreement that you have declared that vengence is yours and not ours. Show forth that TRUTH to those who seek revenge on others. Stop this vicious cycle where generation after generation people are caught in something they didn’t start. Bring peace into their hearts thru Yeshua who died that they might have true peace; peace within; peace with You; peace with others. May those who are caught in a cycle of violence break FREE TODAY by your loving power and grace! Bring them dreams and visions of the Prince of Peace so they can lay down their ARMS and yield to You; and find real peace. AMEN

    Lily Says:

    Dear Lord
    Thank You for Your grace and mercy which You have shown towards all of us. Lord, I thank You particularly for watching over our military and civilians in Baghdad.
    Lord, I pray that you be the LORD of all our lives, particularly the men and women living and working in foreign countries; I ask today that the spirit of Revenge is broken, in Jesus name.
    Lord, we place all injustices done, to the innocent, and that You ALMIGHTY GOD, in the name of JESUS, forgive sins, and that You handle all works of iniquities.
    I give You honour and praise yet another day,and, we need You Lord.
    Amen and Amen

    Jean Says:

    Blest and Wonderful Father in Heaven, may Your will be done in Iraq today, and may there be many who repent of their sins and turn from their wicked ways. Heavenly Father, You have made it so clear that sin has brought death into this world, and persistence in sin leads to spiritual death and terrible judgment as well. But You have offered life and an escape from the consequences of our sins to all who will put their trust in You, and seek to know You. Father in Heaven, throughout the Bible You speak of repentance unto salvation, and eternal life that is provided for those who will accept Your free gift of salvation. There You also sternly warn against sin, including every form of wickedness, hypocrisy and murder. Today may there be those in Baghdad and Iraq who repent of the sins of revenge and murder and put their trust in You. Only when many more lay down their sins and wickedness and the murder in their hearts will lasting peace be possible. I pray that many in Iraq will abandon their sins and sinful attitudes today. Instead, may they submit to Your Word and Your authority, knowing that while for everyone this earthly body is surely perishing You will receive those who trust in You to eternal realms, give them life in the Spirit that is too wonderful to compare to life in our fallen sinful flesh, and ultimately restore their physical bodies, on the day that the dead will all rise, some to life and others to shame and everlasting contempt (Daniel 12:2;John 5:28-29). In Jesus’ Lovely and Holy Name. Amen.

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    Please hear my prayer and listen to the words of my mouth. Do not forget the prayers of Your children who call out to You on this website. We come through Jesus on behalf of the people who call Baghdad their home. There still exist in the vicinity of Baghdad those who would act violently and try to harm the citizens, soldiers, police and others who are there trying to put the pieces together that were put asunder by the war. Please Lord, remove the spirit of revenge from the hearts of those who do not know revenge belongs only to the Lord. Thank You for the progress in the city. Thank You for the new sense of freedom that the citizens are aware of. It has only come through Your blessing and good gifts. May You daily be glorified by the people of the nation for the good You have effected there in the land of Iraq. Thank You, thank You for the blessings known throughout the world today because You opened Your generous hand toward the world again today. Amen

    Lord let Peace settle in this Nation of war. Send Your Spirit to cleanse and revitalize the People. Give them a since of accomplishment and courage to go on fighting for Life. We all should have a right to live for You Lord and to share our thoughts on the Goodness of God. I know that it has to be an empty feeling not knowing You. Reveil Yourself to this Nation and to all it’s people we pray.
    Lord you are their only hope at being free from the Bondage of Sin. There is no way, but threw Jesus Christ. Help them we pray, in the Name of Jesus we pray!!!! Amen

    Thank you, Heavenly Father, for sending visions of Jesus, Isa, Yeshua, to many in the Middle East who are recognizing and wondering together. May their hearts be opened to receive Him, as the time is quickening for His Return. Acts 3:19-20. Blessings to Wayne in his faithful service to the King.

    Dear Lord:
    Apart from you we would be revengeful and full of hate for our enemies and our conduct would be entirely worldly.
    But Jesus gives us a better way. We can cast our cares on Him, for He cares for us.
    He does bring peace and comfort for we know that God is eternal, All seeing, All knowing and well able to overcome the enemy.
    Isaiah says that “Behold, I have created the craftsman that blows on the coals and fashions his weapons:
    But, no weapon fashioned against you will prevail and every tongue that is launched against you you will condemn. This is the heritage of my people, their recompense….is from Me.” paraphrase.
    Thank you Lord for taking on our troubles and teaching us to overcome with faith and love.
    In Jesus Name, Amen

    Good afternoon LORD, Thank you for another day to bring you praise, glory, and honor. I give you parts of your Word to use for YOUR GLORY. Jeremiah 11:20 – OLord Almighty, you are just, and YOU EXAMINE THE DEEPEST THOUGHTS OF HEARTS AND MINDS. Let me see your vengeance against them, for I have committed my cause to you. Now I give Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

    Lord God Almighty, I offer up to you the people of Iraq and Afghanistan who are taking vengence against their own people and our soldiers. Father I BIND up all chaos, and RELEASE order; I BIND UP all dissension and RELEASE unity and harmony to enter and rule; and I BIND UP all VIOLENCE, and RELEASE your peace, mercy, grace, and love to come upon the land of Iraq & Afghanistan. I ask that the people will come to you and seek help and understaning in how to bring forth peace and freedom. I ASK LORD, that they will seek after you and know you, and to understand YOUR PLANS for a future and of hope. Lord, bless our soldiers there and help them to KNOW YOUR PLANS FOR THEIR FUTURE and give them a NEW HOPE. In the the powerful name of Jesus I pray and say thank you Lord for hearing my prayer. Amen

    Betsy P. McAllister Says:

    Father, please bring the insurgents and other warring parties in Iraq and Afghanistan into a knowledge of You as the Righteous Judge of the whole earth. You are their Defender and Deliverer; You are the One in Whose hands lie vengeance. We praise You because of Who You are….the One Who restores justice and order to the peoples You have created. Shine forth, Lord! In Jesus’ name, amen.

    Sharon W. Says:

    Father, thank you for your saving grace and your mercy. Thank you that before we call your hear. Thank you that you look at our hearts and not at our outward appearance. You are God and there is no other. You tell us in your Word that the man who calls on your will be blessed and we pray for the men of Iraq to learn to call on you. Give them ears to hear and eyes to see that you are the only, true and living God. Help them to look beyond revenge and hate and seek you in their lives. Turn them away from a false god who cannot deliver their souls. I ask in the precious name of Jesus.
