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 ask for Your love and mercy today for the people of Haiti. Father, take this opportunity to pray for their receiving salvation and accepting You as their Lord. We lift up our military men and women to You today, God, that You help them endure the elements: the sand, mud, and cold that is now present in that foreign land. We pray for world peace and the peace of Jerusalem. We pray for our nation to return to You and to allow You to lead and guide us in the path acceptable to You. We pray in Jesus Name, Amen

    Oh, dear Father, You are so good, and so faithful to us. We have so much for which to thank You. I praise You and love You for loving everyone in the world, and for caring for each of us.
    You taught us, through Your Son, and Your Word not to seek revenge. So, we come in agreement as intercessors for You to break the power of revenge in Baghdad. Cause the Gospel message to go forth throughout Baghdad and all of Iraq today, so that people can know Your love, have Your salvation, and forgive others as they are forgiven.
    Focus Your attention particularly upon the folks in Haifa today, and bring many souls into Your Kingdom in response to our prayers, which we add to those of Your Son, our Savior, Jesus. Amen.

    Lord, you have told us not to seek revenge – that is your prerogative. You are powerful and just as well as merciful. You do not delight in the death of the wicked but long for them to repent. Ezekiel 33:11 Say to them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, O house of Israel?’
    Turn the tribes away from seeking revenge Lord.
    Romans 12:17-21
    17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.19 Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”says the Lord. 20On the contrary:
    “If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
    if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
    In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
    Psalm 94:23
    He will repay them for their sins and destroy them for their wickedness; the LORD our God will destroy them.

    Dear Father in Heaven, the LORD God Almighty, may Your name be given all the praise and glory. I pray today that YOUR will be done as You have it written in heaven. I lift up to You these words given by David for God’s intervention for our soldiers, and the Iraqis.

    PSALM 35:4-8—-Humiliate and disgrace those trying to kill me; turn them back in confussion. 5. Blow them away like chaff in the wind–a wind sent by the angel of the LORD. 6. Make their path dark and slippery, with the angel of the LORD pursuing them. 7. Although I did them no wrong, they laid a trap for me. Although I did them no wrong, they dug a pit for me. 8. So let sudden 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.*************LORD take these verse’s of David and make them alive with the true touch of Your Justice and Judgement. HELP OUR SOLDIERS and the IRAQIS in this battle against evil. Give to them Your plans, wisdom, and knowledge to face the enemy; knowing that Your angels are right there beside them fighting the battle. BLOW UPON THE ENEMY as if they were chaff and blow them away. DO make the path of the enemy dark and slippery LORD, and have Your angels pursue after them. Make ways LORD for the enemy to suddenly be caught in their own snare, and allow them to fall to destruction into the pits they have dug for the innocent ones and our soldiers. LORD I give this prayer to Your glory, justice, and judgement; and I ask that the Spirit of Revenge be turned into the spirit of love and peace. In the mane of Jesus I pray. Amen

    Father of all creation, We don’t understand these wicked people, who are full of hatred and violence. These people seem to be unstopable. There is so much violencee in the Middle East. It is a disese of evil that permeates that area and the blackness covers the innocent as well. God, I pray you will weed out the wicked and save the innocent. Show yourself in mighty power to bring and end to such horrific killings and the shedding of innocent blood. Lord, speak to this nation. Open eyes to see the only ONE GOD in all of creation…let there be a ground swell of people who find YOU and eternal life. Turn this war around. What Satan meant for evil, I pray you turn for good.
    In Jesus name I plead His blood over these dying souls. AMEN

    Heavenly Father,

    Thank You for being strength for the weak. Thank You for being light for those in darkness. Thank You for being provision where none can be seen. Thank You for being shelter during unexpected storms. You are so much for so many people worldwide. Tonight I ask in particular that You would overcome the spirit of revenge that tries to dominate the hearts of people in Baghdad and all of Iraq. Replace that revengeful spirit with Your spirit of love. I pray You would teach the people how to do good to their enemies as Jesus taught. Teach them to turn the other cheek and go the extra mile and give their coat to the ones who mistreat them so that peace can be fully established and a new order can be known in the land. You are able my dear Abba to do this that I ask of You in Baghdad. Please may peace blossom like a flower bursting forth from the bud. Thank You again for hearing our pleas for a good outcome this day in Iraq. May You be glorified through it all. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen

Thank you Father for watching over them, I pray that they will all come home safely to their families. Father please bind the enemy who seeks to do harm to the people of Baghdad and all of Iraq. Bind the one who comes to Baghdad to disrupt the peace the people are enjoying. Father nothing is impossible for you to do so we come interceding for these who are in harms way. I pray in Jesus name.

    Dear Lord Holy is Your Name. I agree with Wayne’s beautiful prayer. You are faithful and true to all of Your people. I ask that the violence over the city of Baghdad will end. I pray that You will change the hearts of those who want nothing but to show hate and demolish homes and churches. Please be with the city officials to work together to help rid their city of these evil people. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen

    Ann from AL Says:

    Father, I agree with my brother in this prayer. Everything you do is good. We know there is great history in Iraq and you do have a good plan for all the people there. Protect those who are hungry for TRUTH and reveal Yeshua to them in their dreams and visions. Expose those who have dedicated themselves to violence and convict them of their wicked ways. Show them what true eternal life is and draw them by your Holy Spirit into salvation. in Jesus’ name. AMEN

    This evening, as I pray for Baghdad, with a special emphasis on the area of the city called, Shula, I ask dear Lord Father God, that You would grant them a special grace to forgive, to let go of the past and to move forward into the new year with YOU as their God and their guide. Break the power of revenge with the greater power of agape love. Show Yourself strong on behalf of all those who love You and serve You in Baghdad, and in the USA. In Jesus name, amen. A P.S., Father, I pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

    Father, may our soldiers who are fighting for peace, sing this song of the psalmist today:

    Psalm 144:
    1 Praise be to the LORD my Rock,
    who trains my hands for war,
    my fingers for battle.

    2 He is my loving God and my fortress,
    my stronghold and my deliverer,
    my shield, in whom I take refuge,
    who subdues peoples [a] under me.

    3 O LORD, what is man that you care for him,
    the son of man that you think of him?

    4 Man is like a breath;
    his days are like a fleeting shadow.

    5 Part your heavens, O LORD, and come down;
    touch the mountains, so that they smoke.

    6 Send forth lightning and scatter {the enemies};
    shoot your arrows and rout them.

    7 Reach down your hand from on high;
    deliver me and rescue me
    from the mighty waters,
    from the hands of foreigners
    8 whose mouths are full of lies,
    whose right hands are deceitful.
    9 I will sing a new song to you, O God;
    on the ten-stringed lyre I will make music to you,

    10 to the One who gives victory to kings,
    who delivers his servant David from the deadly sword.

    11 Deliver me and rescue me
    from the hands of foreigners
    whose mouths are full of lies,
    whose right hands are deceitful.

    Dottie Says:

    Dear Father I pray for Baghdad today. Convict those who seek to destroy the peace that has been attained. Remove these from the area and bring confusion to their minds. Do not allow them to carry out terroristic acts. Bind any who are planning evil. Fill the people with your Holy Spirit so that they may learn to live together in harmony. Teach them to love their neighbor as themselves. Thank you for all your answered prayers on our behalf. We love and honor you for who you are. I pray in Jesus name. Amen

    Father in Heaven, I praise Your Holy Name. I pray for hearts to be changed so there will be no revenge and the violence will lessen. Convict the hard hearts of the evil people that there is a better way. They are killing their own people. They are so misguided by the words of the Koran that have been twisted to serve their evil deeds. I pray that the enemy’s hideouts are dicovered and roadside bombs are found before it’s too late.
    In Jesu’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen

    O heavenly Father God full of power and grace for Karrada and the rest of Iraq. We praise and honor you that nothing is hidden from you, so now we declare in united prayers that the wicked schemes of the devil to destroy the peace and progress on the ground will be overcome by your Holy Spirit’s manifesting power as how you empowers Gideon and Nehemiah to defeat the enemy on the line.

    In Jesus name as our Mediator and Prince of Peace, we pray in the anointing of your Holy Spirit that vengeance belongs to you and the innocents, troops, volunteers, and other involved party in Karrada are covered with your protecting and loving hands for your glory and honor. Amen.
