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.

    Heavenly Father, praise You and thank You for the many answered prayers and Blessings You continually shower upon Sadr City and the men, women and children there. Today we lift up this city, we pray You will keep them from harms way. Let no weapon formed against the innocent come to fruition. Bind the strongman and all evil doers. Let the light of Jesus shine on Sadr City, exposing all hate and evil, that those who seek evil would be confounded and confused, let them be filled with fear and confusion. Be with the Military and Police, keep them safe and give them wisdom, discernment and strength as they do their jobs.
    Send forth Your Angels to surround and protect the people and their homes. Thank You for Your love. We ask all in Jesus name. Amen

    Dear Father as we have heard about more bombings today in Baghdad our hearts go out to the victims who have lost loved ones. Dear Father I pray that your would intervene and cause these who are planning attacks on innocent people, that you would confuse their thoughts. Turn them away from darkness and send them into the Light. Reveal to them your Holy Spirit. Nothing is impossible for you dear Father.
    Thank you for hearing our cries to you. Thank you for who you are, our great and mighty God. Watch over our troops today in Iraq and Afganistan. Keep them in the hollow of your hand. I pray in Jesus name. Amen

    Great and Merciful Father in Heaven, today I want to praise You for the amazing things You have done already in Iraq in regard to silencing the lies of the evil one and drawing people closer to Yourself, not the least of which is that many have been drawn to pray for the situation and needs of that nation. May You be greatly honored.

    I pray that You will bring to fulfillment Your purposes in all this good work You have been doing. I know from Your true and consistent Word that means bringing Your light into dark places, liberating those oppressed by wickedness and evil, giving grace and strength to all who have put their trust in You, and raising up a powerful testimony to Your honor and goodness. Heavenly Father, sinful attitudes of resentment, self-focused pride and desires for revenge are some of the things that cause people to live in a habitual attitude of sin. The Bible defines sin as falling short of the glory of God, and we are all guilty of that. But some have hardened their hearts, stopped their ears, and refused to hear Your good news that offers redemption and help to anyone who repents of their sin and trusts You for salvation from bondage to sin. Today may just one person in Iraq find the grace to repent of harboring sinful attitudes that cause them to seek revenge for past hurts or offences and cast him or herself on Your divine mercy, lest they find themself to be eternally condemned. Thank You for Your grace and mercy that holds out the offer of forgiveness to anyone who still draws breath on this earth. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    “Then the word of the LORD of hosts came to me, saying, … ‘When you fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh months … did you really fast for Me–for Me? When you eat and when you drink, do you not eat and drink for yourselves? Should you not have obeyed the words which the LORD proclaimed through the former prophets …? Execute true justice, show mercy and compassion everyone to his brother. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the alien or the poor. Let none of you plan evil in his heart against his brother.’ … But they refused to heed, shrugged their shoulders and stopped their ears so that they could not hear. Yes, they made their hearts like flint, …. Thus great wrath came from the LORD of hosts” (Zechariah 7:4-12).

    ALL MIGHTY GOD, HOLLY HOLLY HOLLY, IS THE LORD GOD ALL MIGHTY.
    GRACIOUS and MERCIFUL GOD, once again we come before You, in behalf of Your INNOCENT ones in Baghdad. We also bring before Your THRONE of GRACE this day ALL those in Baghdad who do not know You and are causing so very much PAIN and SUFFERING to Your LOVED ones.
    Lord, CRIME and VIOLENCE effect the lives of MANY. HELP those who act in the ways of the evil one to DEVELOPE a GENUINE LOVE, CONCERN and RESPECT for THEMSELVES and for ALL PEOPLES. May thir DESIER for FREEDOM, GREATER RESOUCES, or MATERIAL POSSESSIONS NEVER be an EXCUSE for UNJUST AGGRESSION or an INFRINGEMENT on the FREEDOM, DIGNITY and RIGHTS of OTHERS.
    Lord, We ask that You would send down Your HOLY SPIRIT on ALL the evil in Baghdad, RELEASE from them ALL WRONG THOUGHTS and evil IMAGINATIONS the evil one has put into their MINDS and ACTIONS. CREATE IN THEM A PURE HEART OH, GOD. AND RENEW A STEADFAST SPIRIT WITHIN THEM.
    In THE name of THE FATHER, SON and THE HOLY SPIRIT I COVER THE EVILNESS IN Baghdad WITH the BLOOD of JESUS and COMMAND ALL EVIL to FLEE Baghdad.
    In the BLESSED SAVIORS NAME I ask these things….Amen

    Our gracious loving Jehoavah Jireh, Creator and Sustainer of everything, you are the same God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. As you granted favor to Jacob’s son, Joseph and his family in Egypt, you can do the same favor and blessings to the Troops from Allied Forces while they are serving in Adhmiya and other parts of Iraq.In you there is true justice for the wicked who are sowing terrors on the area, vengeance belongs to you, O LOrd God, so we entrust to you every evil schemes because you alone could turn it around for the good of the Adhamiyans and the peacekeepers to carry on the progress on the ground. Not by might, nor by power but by your Spirit there is victory, hope, peace, true freedom, and deliverance from any evil assaults for the civilians, Troops, Iraqi Police and government leaders who are serving to preserve the peace and progress on the ground so that all the glory, honor and praises will be returned to you,as we pray in the empowerment of the Holy Spirit as our Savior Jesus Christ intercede for us. Amen.

    Lord, I thank you for this day of new mercy and grace. I come to you on behalf of the Iraqis and Afghanis in the midst of their fight of freedom and peace. These are your people and we thank you for allowing us to lift them up to you.

    O LORD, oppose those who oppose me. Declare war on those who are attacking me. Put on your armor, and take u your shield. Prepare for battle, and come to my aid. Lift up your spear and javelin and block the way of my enemies. Let me hear you say, “I am your salvation!”

    Humiliate and desgrace those trying to kill me; turn them back in confusion. Blow them away like chaff in the wind– a wind sent by the angel of the LORD. Make their path dark an slippery,with the angel of the LORD pursuing them. Although I did them no wrong, they laid a trap for me. Although I did them no wrong, they dug a pit for me. So let suden ruin overtake them! Let them be caught in the snare they set for me! Let them fall to destruction in the pit they dug for me. Then I will rejoice in the LORD. I will praise him from the bottom of my heart; “LORD, who can compare with you? Who else rescues the weak and helpless from the strong? Who else protects the poor and needy from those who want to rob them?”
    Prayer and hearts cry of King David. Psalm 35:1-11

    May these Words be given and used by the Iraqis and Afganis for encouragement and strenght in who they are in your eyes.
    Today Father, God, I COMMAND the spirit revenge in the power of JESUS’ NAME to flee from Iraq, and Afghanistan, and I RELEASE YOU TO FLUSH VENGEANCE from their hearts and minds. Lord, Arise and show forth YOUR JUDGMENTS upon the spirit of revenge that is ruling over Iraq and Afghanistan. I DECLARE THIS a BRAND NEW DAY of forgiveness, cooperation, and peace in the land of Iraq and Afghanistan. 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 forward in the HOPE given by your grace and mercy. In the Holy name of Jesus I pray. Amen and Amen

    Dearest Lord,

    I am sad today seeing all the violence in Baghdad and Afghanistan on the news. My heart is discouraged but my faith is not wavering on my gracious God!! I know You are faithful and will bring about a victory in Your timing. Please, Lord, stop the plans of revengers and the wicked and face them as You faced Paul on the streets of Damascus and plead with them ” Why are you persecuting Me?” Please have men dream dreams of Your free gift of salvation and young men have visions of Your great power and redemption. In Jesus precious name, Amen. I love You, Lord!!

    Heavenly Father,
    We ask you to send your holy angels to Iraq and Afghanistan now to stop the carnage. Bind satan and his demons, stop their power over those who are filled with evil spirits. Please protect the citizens, the soldiers, and those who are innocent of wrong-doing. Bring the un-saved to true salvation through the shed blood of Your Son Jesus Christ. Jesus, please appear to them as you have in Africa. Show them you are real, and that You love them so much You died for them, and rose again so that they might have LIFE, if they BELIEVE IN YOU!

    Betsy P. Says:

    “O god, my God! How I search for You! How I thirst for You in this parched and weary land where there is no water. How I long to find You! How I wish I could go into Your sanctuary to see Your strength and glory, for Your love and kindness are better to me than life itself. How I praise You! I will bless You as long as I live, lifting up my hands to You in prayer. At last I shall be fully satisfied; I will praise You with great joy.

    I lie awake at night thinking of You – of how much Yu have helped me – and how I rejoice through the night beneath the protecting shadow of Your wings.

    I follow close behind You, protected by Your strong right arm. But those plotting to destroy me shall go down to the depths of hell. They are doomed to die by the sword to become the food of jackals. But I will rejoice in God. All who trust in Him exult; while liars shall be silenced.” The heart cry of King David in Psalm 63:1-11.

    Lord, I cover our military and the godly people of Iraq and Afghanistan with this psalm. And may the ones who are plotting evil be turned from their wicked ways to serve the living God, and not have to spend eternity in hell. Father, forgive them, and turn their hearts to YOur Son, the Savior of the world. In Jesus’ name, amen.

    Lord, we sing your praises today and lift our voices to you. You are the solid rock on which we stand and all other ground is sinking sand. We bring before your throne today the people of Iraq. We ask that you remove all bitterness and strife from the hearts of those who would cause discord. Let them see the futility in always warring and fighting. Give wisdom to the leaders of the military and police. Bless every soldier today and protect their steps from all harm. Bless the families of the military today who are left behind to wonder and pray for their safety. In the name of our blessed and only Lord Jesus, I pray.

Iraq is still so fragile. Lord it is only by satan being cast out of these people gripped by wanting revenge will these killings ever cease. Please cast out the demons of revenge in these people.
    Put a spirit of peace and the Truth of Jesus Christ into their hearts. Bless and protect out military throughout the world. In the blood of the only one who can only truly save, Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

    Joan Says:

    Lord, we ask that You break the power of revenge, violence, and hatred in Iraq and Afghanistan today. Arrest the hearts and minds of those who give and carry out orders to detonate bombs. Let them be overcome with fears and doubts and an overwhelming sorrow about the loss of lives of their brethren. Even if their path of destruction seems inevitable, Lord we trust in Your grace and power to turn them back. Protect that Afghan people as the prepare to go to the polls. Raise up righteous leaders in Iraq and Afghanistan who will lead the people in Your paths for their nations. Send revival and reformation to these two nations and make them a highway for Your kingdom and for peace in the Middle East.
