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 Lord:
    Please let these nice people forgive me for not knowing the correct Psalms about the promises concerning “Considering the poor.
    The Correction is PSALM 41: “Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble. The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.”
    “The Lord will strengthen him upon his bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.”…..
    “By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me. And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy Face forever.”
    Lord, our US Soldiers do not hate those that they fight. But the enemy hates them. This is not a good recipe on the face of it, for winning battles.
    BUT, the Battle is the Lord’s, and safety is of the Lord…..so all we need to do is repent of our sins and pray for victory and Jesus Christ, our true Commander, will win our Battles.
    Let us fight to win but let us sleep soundly at day’s end because while we battled we still avoided hate.
    We don’t fight from a standpoint of hate and revenge but from a passion for peace and a law abiding society. In Jesus Name we pray today with Thanksgiving, Amen

    Dear Lord Jesus
    I thank You again for Your faithfulness and mercy; I pray that this day, men and women, living in Iraq, will seek Your face and turn from their wicked ways; and that their would be no reasons to seek revenge against mankind, in Jesus name.
    Lord let their anger be directed instead to the adversary, the enemy of their souls, who is the father of lies!
    Thank You Lord for hearing my prayers, in Jesus name,
    Amen and Amen

    Oh Yes Father God,
    I pray against the spirit of revenge and ask You to send the spirit of forgiveness to displace it in the name of jesus. The earth is the Lords. May Your kingdom fill Baghdad. Bless the believers whose church was destroyed in the green zone and give them the Nehemiah annointing to rebuild. Thank You, Father. Thank You, Holy Spirit.

    Dottie Says:

    Dear Father I pray that you would bind the ones in Baghdad so that they would not be able to do harm to the citizens of Iraq. Father confuse those who are planning evil acts. Father protect our troops and help them each day to cope with the hard times thay are going through. Please help the peace to hold fast in Iraq. Give the people there the will to do the right thing. May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. I pray in Jesus name. Amen

    Our gracious and loving Abba Father, we declare in united prayers that all the praises, glory and honor belongs to you as our Jehovah-raah, the only God who cares and shepherd of our troops, Iraqi police, governing leaders, and the civilians in Haifa and other parts of Iraq for your glory and honor.

    In you alone Father God, through Christ our Savior and forever Mediator that there is salvation for those who call and seek you by faith, especially for those who have the access to some of your children on the ground. With your Holy Spirit’s conviction as the unsaved listen to your Word or through visions and other form of revelation you provided, there is freedom from shame, guilt and shame as they began to know and accept your Son’s Lordship over their lives. We pray and agree in prayer with thanksgiving for the way you answer this prayer in Jesus mighty and holy name, as your Holy Spirit empowers us to pray. Amen. Glory to the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world!

    Jean Says:

    Dear Father in Heaven, Iraq has suffered for a long time, and the problem of different parties within Iraq fighting one another, and then seeking revenge for real or perceived wrongs might be hindering the nation from being able to establish peace. I pray that the people of Iraq would be willing to lay aside their differences and work together for peace. I pray for the authorities to find out who might be seeking to cause trouble or to violently perpetuate old rivalries, and to take action to restore peace and bring stability. I pray that it might be seen that You are and have been at work in Iraq. May the people be willing to lay aside their differences and embrace Your design and purposes for that nation, working together for peace and the safety of their children and descendants. Thank You for hearing our prayers. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Lois Says:

    Precious Lord Jesus, our Savior and King, May the scripture below bring to you the upbeat feeling to help our men, Iraqis, and Afghanis with their battle against the enemy of violence and oppression.

    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. Holy Spirit, our guide and conscience from God, help our soldiers, Afghanis, and Iraqis to RELIZE THE TRUTH of what your plans and hopes are for them. Give them all the courage to seek after that and the destiny they have in you. I pray this in Jesus’ name and give Him all the glory. Amem

    Dear Lord:
    In the Book of Romans You say that “Vengence is Mine. I will repay.” This is a true saying. For You can do anything but lie. You are the source of all Truth and the Devil is the father of all lies.
    We can believe You without fail. You will exact judgment and revenge for those actions that transgress Your Law of Love and Justice. Lord, for the wicked, evildoers who plan and execute their violence they know not that they do this to their own harm. The law of reciprocity and Jesus said, “Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap.” If you set a snare, you will be snared. Count on it. Take it to the bank. It will happen. Prepare to meet your God and give an account. Rather sow what you want to reap. It is time of war and our US Soldiers must fight but they have been given the sword to execute judgment so the best thing for all to do who are involved in wicked schemes is to forsake it and pursue life and liberty and peace. Cast these on the waters and they will come back on 7 shores. (figuratively of course.) Lord, let those people who need to read this on the other “side” read it and reconsider their deeds. In Jesus Name we pray, amen.

    O Lord, how many are Your works! You made them all in wisdom. The earth is full of what You have made. The earth is yours O Lord and the fullness therein. You are the Only Wise God, the Only God, you are God, nobody and nothing can be compared with you. You are much more precious than silver and gold. All together lovely you are O Lord.

    Hear O Lord the cry of your people for Baghdad and all of Iraq Lord. Hear the cry of the poor for you O Lord hear the cry of the afflicted. Heal the broken hearted, restore the years the locust has eaten from the people of Iraq. A cruel master rules over them. By the power of Your blood Jesus deliver them we pray.

    Lord tonight visit the ring leader of the most violent terrorist group in Baghdad. We call for dreams, visions, signs and wonders to be poured out on the city and especially in the worst areas. Where much sin abounds Lord you say that grace abounds much more. Let this be so. Let this week be a week of salvation in Jesus Name.

    Virginia Says:

    You, Oh, Lord, are watching all the thoughts and deeds of humanity. You are the God of all mankind. You know the righteous who cry out to you for salvation. We pray that you will prepare a rich banquet of truth and mercy amongst the men and women who serve in the troubled land to stand for your justice, truth, and mercy. Watch over the families of our troops. Raise up in America the people who will be dedicated to helping reunite families and serve those who have served us so faithfully. Honor those, O God, who honor you. We pray favor and protection.

    Sherrill Says:

    Father, all of us have needs but our needs pale in comparison to the needs of our young men and women fighting in foreign lands. They are away from home, family and friends. That alone is hard to endure. We ask, Lord, that You fill their need for home, family, and friends. Help them know they are not alone. We pray constantly for their welfare and deliverance from harm. We pray constantly for their soon return. Give them hope and love in their spirits today, O Lord. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. In Jesus’ Name, we ask it, Amen

    Tress Cole Says:

    Dear Lord we ask that the spirit of revenge be bond. Bring peace and harmony to this nation we pray. Allow our soldiers to be protected both night and day by your angels and allow no harm to come to them. We know that you have compassion and mercy that is abundant with over flow. Help our soldiers to tap into this endless supply and know that they walk not alone!
    With the Spirit of Christ Jesus as their guide, they can face all things. Help them to feel your Spirit with them in everything they do and say. We ask this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ, Amen

    Betsy P. Says:

    “Vengeance is Mine”, saith the Lord, “I will repay!”

    Father we agree for You to break the counterfeit vengeance taker, and the spirit of vengeance which grips hearts and minds in Baghdad and all of Iraq. Vengeance belongs to You; for only You know the Truth in any matter.

    Jesus…we proclaim You to be King and the Judge of the whole earth. Amen.

    Sharon W. Says:

    Lord, you are God of all hope. Without you we can’t survive in this world filled with evil. Give us strength today to carry on and bring the message of salvation through Jesus to the nations. We pray for the countries of Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan today as every day. We pray for peace to come and for the gospel of Christ to be spread in the nations. We pray that you will stop the violence against the people and especially against Christians in these countries. We pray for the soldiers and police who are guarding the cities that they will be alert and steadfast in their protection over the people and that they will be safe from the enemy. In the name of Jesus, I pray.

    It is another day that You have given to all of us, and I thank You for it; Lord, You have caused it to rain on the Just, as well as for the Unjust persons;
    Lord,You do go to and fro, seeking those who will serve You, Lord, even in Foreign Countries, You visit. Lord, I ask today that You show great favor for our military, and the citizens living in Iraq, and domestic; and break the power of revenge from our enemies, and Lord, grant salvation to the wicked.
    Lord, I ask these and other Blessings in Jesus name,
    Amen and Amen

Protect them with your divine power so they may hear the truth. Give them dreams and visions of Yeshua and His great love and plan for their lives. Place warring angels around the troops who are trying to keep the peace and protect the civilians. AMEN

    Lois Says:

    Today Father, God, I COMMAND the spirit of 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

    M. Thompson Says:

    Dear Lord:
    Your Word says that the wrath of man You cause to praise You; then you restrain the rest….of the wrath of man.
    Yes, there has been an increase recently in violence in Iraq.
    Yes, more than usual.
    But due to prayer, you are causing it somehow to Praise You. Maybe because so many are being rescued. We don’t know the entire story.
    When our US Soldiers withdraw there is retribution by the hard core on the men that cooperated with the US Soldiers.
    This is the danger of withdrawing when the war is not won.
    But God allowed us to start pulling out.
    Thank You Lord. The violence is less on our men.
    This 1040 window has been penetrated and the Gospel has gone into the darkness of their world in Iraq.
    Believers have been born into the Christian faith. And there are martyrs.
    Still, we don’t see the end from the beginning like the Lord does.
    As Job said, “The Lord gives and the Lord takes away. Blessed be the Name of the Lord.” Jesus come quickly, Amen

    Audrey West Says:

    Dearest Father,

    You are the one who knows who is doing the revenge. Wow, You have the power to reveal the evil men and their schemes. Jesus, do something now. In Jesus precious name, Amen. I love You, Lord.

    Audrey West

  25. 529
    Betsy P. Says:

    “Vengeance is Mine,saith the Lord.” Your Word tells us that we are not to seek vengeance, but that You will judge and decide and wreak vengeance as You see fit, Father.

    And in Psalm 2, we are told that, when the nations rage and the people imagine a vain thing, You sit in the heavens and laugh. Then you vex them with Your great displeasure.

    You have set YOUR KING upon Your holy hill of Zion! Hallelujah! You reign!

    The Living Bible paraphrase for children says, “O kings and rulers of the earth, listen while there is time. Serve the Lord with reverent fear; rejoice with trembling. Fall down before His Son and kiss His feet before His anger is aroused and you perish. I am warning you – His wrath will soon begin. But oh, the joys of them who put their trust in Him!”

    Be blessed, adored, exalted, and loved today, O King of Earth and Heaven. Amen.
