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 Father I pray for Baghdad today. Father release mens and womens hatred for each other. Bring love and peace to this city. Turn the lives around of those who continue to do evil acts. Free the people of their bent to sinning and may they turn to You Father. May christians in Iraq be able to speak out about their faith. May they spread Your love to one another. Yes Lord You know the plans You have for this city. Bind up those who are trying to disrupt the peace. Protect our troops and their military who are striving to bring order. I pray in Jesus name. Amen

    Father, given the length of time that the spirit of revenge has been operating in the Middle East, and in BAghdad, Adhamiya, Iraq, specifically, it would seem impossible for the for it to be broken. But, Your Son said that with you ALL THINGS are POSSIBLE. So, we join in agreement with the word of our Lord and Savior, fully expecting You to move on behalf of the civilians and soldiers in Iraq. Thank You, Father, for Your Word is faithful and You are faithful to Your Word, in Jesus name, amen.

    Blessed Lord, please help Your people to represent You well in Iraq, for they have the Holy Spirit as their Helper. Please help them to demonstrate a different attitude that brings glory to Your Holy Name and stops the activities of angry and vengeful individuals in their tracks. May Your Name and Your reputation shine in Iraq, drawing many others into the sheepfold of Your loving care. May astonishment at the gentle and forebearing spirit of those who Name Your Name cause others to seriously reflect on the wickedness of their own hearts and to choose Your better Way. In Jesus’ Holy and Pure Name. Amen.

    Father, We stand together asking for peace for the people of Baghdad. Let your presence be known and let those causing such fear, tremble at your presence and be stilled. You are our great God, and all power belongs to you. Take away their weapons and all desires to kill, steal and destroy. Bring Godly order and peace and safety to these people we pray.

    Lord, God, we do praise You as Sovereign Lord, Almighty God! There is truly none like You!! Only You could bring change to Baghdad and to Iraq. We pray You will have mercy upon the innocent and protect them! And that You will protect all of our troops there. Please place border guards aroung Iraq to protect from those who would come in from Iran and elsewhere to wreak havoc and destruction. Lord, may the good things that men and women of our nation did for Iraq not be lost, but rather remembered and let these actions of our troops bear fruit in the land, in Jesus’ Name!

    Dottie Says:

    Dear Father once again Amen and Amen to the opening prayer. Send a cleansing wave over Baghdad and remove the bitterness that has invaded this city. Father stay the hand of those who continue to disrupt this peace that has been fought for so very hard. Honor the ones in Baghdad who fight to keep the peace. Do not allow the citizens to have to live in fear. Cover this city with Your Holy Spirit and fill the leaders with Your love and forgiveness. I pray for the ones who have to endure the unrest and pray for strength for each day for them. Do send a fresh wind and Your Holy Spirit over this land. I pray in Jesus name. Amen

    Luann Beasley Says:

    Glory be to You Lord Jesus! Thank You for Your saving grace and goodness. I lift up the Iraqi people and ask that You would bless them in all the ways they need. Lord, protect the innocent and open their hearts to You. Lord, You are fair and just and we know how merciful You are. I pray for Your mercy to be upon the people. Help them to accept You as Lord of all. May they trust the troops and respect what has been done for them. They have been through so much with all the war and destruction. But You are a God of restoration. Lord, I pray for Your healing power and grace to come upon this nation. May the leaders work together for peace. I pray this in Your name, Jesus. Amen.

    Peggy Says:

    Father, You are a merciful and loving God, but also a righteous and just GOD. We come into agreement that the spirit of revenge is not your will for your people. We pray that you would come against that spirit of revenge and remove it from this land.

    Let your creation live in peace to honor you with their lives. To be lovers of their GOD who is their creator and defender. Holy Spirit call them to you I pray. Hover over them that they might come to know the depth of your love for them and give love back to you.

    Thank you GOD for hearing our prayers. To you belongs all the glory and the honor and the power and the wisdom and all our love. Holy, holy, holy is our God. AMEN

    Jean Says:

    Dear Father in Heaven, I pray for the attitudes and habits of vengeful people to be condemned and discredited in every part of Iraq. I also pray that the citizens of that nation will support one another in seeking peaceful ways to live and work together in that land. May they be found willing to rise up to defend the weaker ones among them from the hand of a wicked aggressor, and greatly in support of the police and forces as they work to establish safe communities for all. I pray that minorities will have a voice, and good support from their neighbours. I pray for Your will to be done in Iraq during this time of rebuilding, and in the days to come. In Jesus’ Righteous and Pure Name. Amen.

    Precious Lord, Almighty King, Redeemer, I worship you and thank you for dying for us and for including us into your glory through your son, our Lord Jesus. As we pull out of Iraq, please fill the vacuum with your angels and do not allow the enemy to flood the country with his darkness. Only you can do this and we will recognize that it’s your power when good news comes out of Baghdad! Thank you. By the power in the name of Jesus, Amen

    “‘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

    Our heavenly Father, I come before you with a very humble heart for the refenge in Iraq to stop. LORD God, Most high and Majestic, YOU see all and know all. YOU know who and where all the places the enemy is planning their strategy, therefore, I ask that all their plans be brought back onto them. Give dreams and visions to the leaders of Iraq and the Iraqi troops, plus our troops there. Help them all to understand Your plans for them and how You will conquer the enemy. Lord give them Your love, peace, joy, and most of all Your love. Make this be a NEW DAY for Baghdad — a day of forgiveness, cooperation, and peace.

    Betsy P. Says:

    Lord Jesus, may there be one or more troublemaker in Baghdad, Karrada, or somewhere in Iraq tonight who comes to know You as the Prince of Peace and the Lord of lords. Introduce Yourself, please, as the One Who forgives his/her sins, and help him/her to forgive others, even if it has to be through tears. There may be troublemakers among the troops or targeting the troops. Deal with those by Your power, might, and mercy. And may You receive all the glory in Jesus name, amen.

    Dear God,
    I pray this morning that all the people living in Iraq will ‘trust and obey You, for there is no other way to be happy in JESUS but to trust and obey’

    Look down on Kathleen and the girls, as they continue to carry on the work that their husband and father left behind. Give strength and guidance where they need it most.

    We bind every demon spirit that is now hovering over Iraq, and its surrounding areas. Allow the devil to take his flight and go back from whence he came. I pray for our Muslim brothers and sisters who are calling on the Name of our True and Living God.
    For those who still do not believe that YOU are for real – please! please! reveal YOURSELF to them through the presence of YOUR HOLY SPIRIT. Save I pray those who are willing to make a complete surrender of their lives to YOU.
    In the MIGHTY NAME of JESUS – Amen and Amen.

    cast out. We declare a new day in Baghdad. I pray for those who have been killing the innocent to have a new vision for their own nation. I pray that they would be so weary of killing and death.

    Dear Lord
    I pray this day, that we all will have the complete love of Christ within our hearts, and that there will be no attempts to pay back a wrong having been done.
    In Luke chapter 9; verse 54; tells how James and John two of Jesus Deciples wanted Fire to come down from heaven and consume Jesus’s enemies; But, Jesus rebuked them; It reads as follows– Verse 54; and when his dicisples James and John saw this, they said, Lord wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?
    55 But He turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.
    56. For the Son of Man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
    Lord, may we all remember not to take matters in our own hands, but to follow Your example,
    and forgive our enemies, in Jesus name,
    Amen and Amen
