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 all Glorious may those living in Baghdad (soldiers and civilians), in Sadr City and all of Iraq have the peace of the Holy Spirit to settle down on them today. May the knowledge of Your great mercy and forgiveness motivate each person to forgive the other for the transgressions that have been committed against him/her. May intercessions be offered for those who have shown themselves to be enemies. May each one follow Your instructions to love their enemies, bless those who curse them, do good to those who hurt them, and pray for those who persecute them. May Your Kingdom come and Your will be done all over Iraq to the glory of God as we pray in the name of Jesus, amen.

    All praise and glory and honor be to You, Lord Jesus. I thank You that I can pray to You…my wonderful Lord! I ask that You bind the evil one that is trying to destroy all of Iraq. I pray that Your light will shine through the believers there. Give them strength, dear Lord, I pray. Help them to share Your truth with the guidance of Your Holy Spirit. I pray that You would go before them and prepare the hearts of those that are to hear Your truth. May Your will be done in all of Iraq. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen.

    Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, break the power of revenge from the hearts of all those who might be seeking revenge for whatever reason. Loose the strongholds that have hold on those who are blinded by the power of revenge. Set them free from the strongholds of Satan. In Jesus name I pray and give thanks! I cover us all with the Blood of Jesus. Amen

    Jean Says:

    Dear Father in Heaven, by Your grace I agree in prayer for changed hearts among the violent ones who have been troubling Iraq. Please bring about circumstances and events that will cause those who have been desiring revenge to see things Your way. May they take warning that the violence they might use can quickly turn against them. Please reawaken their God-given consciences to know that what they have been planning or doing is evil. May such persons come to repentance before You, Dear Lord. In Jesus’ Holy and True Name. Amen.

    Dear Father may Your will be done in Iraq especially Baghdad where there seems to be trouble off and on. Father give these people the opportunity to live peaceful lives. May Your will be done on earth there as it is in heaven. Protect those who are working for that peace and protect our troops as they sacrifice their lives for us. I pray in Jesus name. amen

    Betsy P. Says:

    Jesus, Lord Jesus, there is none like You – the One Who broke the power of vengeance when You gave Yourself willingly on the cross. You could have exercised vengeance upon Your accusers, persecutors, and executioners at that very moment; but, instead, You gave them mercy, and cried, “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do!”
    Your mercy is still flowing freely for those in Baghdad, Sadr City, and all Iraq. What a great, mighty, and merciful God! May Your mercy cause Your Holy Spirit to be poured out upon all flesh in Iraq, causing their sons and daughters to prophesy, their old men to dream dreams and their young men to see visions, and also for the Spirit to be upon every servant and handmaiden. We pray this to You, Father, as directed by Your Son, Jesus, amen.

    Luann Beasley Says:

    Lord Jesus of love and mercy, I praise Your holy name! Dear Father, please hear my prayer for Baghdad. I ask that Your hand of mercy be over this city. Cast the evil out and help the people to come to You. You alone can lead this nation to peace and prosperity. Father, guide the leaders with Your beautiful truth. Bind the evil one and keep the innocent from harm. Lord, may Your holy name be praised and adored all over Iraq. In Jesus’ holy name I pray. Amen.

    Faye Says:

    Father Holy is Your Name. I thank You that I can come to You with the things that are on my heart. You always bend down to listen and I will pray as long as I have breath. So now. I ask that You will keep the troops safe from those that want vengence. Things were suppose to be getting better and for awhile they were. Now the evil ones want to create more havoc. Please be with the Iraqi army and that they will find out who the evil ones are in their army and punish them. Our troops are there to help. I guess the coin is too good to pass up and they take and then kill.
    In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen
    To God be the Glory!!!!

    Lord Jesus, I come before throne in awe of who you are, and with a humble heart. I give you praise and glory for what you have done and for the many things you will do this year. You tell us “vengence is mine” thus, I stand on that and believe you will allow YOUR WILL to be done in Baghdad. YOU will change the hearts of all the men and women who are doing evil, and show forth your love unto them. 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.

    Betsy P. Says:

    Father, You are great and You do miracles so great. Only You can make a perfect heart. Please move on hearts, as we pray in unity before Your Throne, to desire to forgive those who have hurt them and theirs. Move on hearts to repent and ask for forgiveness, too. May this be a day in Baghdad, Adhamiya, and all Iraq when Your Holy Spirit settles down on everyone with a sweet anointing of peace, love and forgiveness. Make it a day like none other in which people will notice a difference within themselves and others, in that the sense of revenge in their hearts is gone. We ask this in the name of Jesus the Prince of Peace.

    Lord Jesus, You are so worthy of our love and adoration. I give You all praise and glory and honor for all that You are and all that You do. Father, I pray for Iraq, that You would bind the evil one that comes to steal and destroy. Lord, cause confusion in the camp of the enemy and make their plans fall apart. I pray for the police and military in Iraq. Lord, please guide them with Your righteousness. I pray that Your truth would spread throughout the police force and military. May they accept You into their hearts and souls. Then they will succeed, for You are the mighty warrior. I thank You for the gift of prayer! I love You. Amen.

    Joy to the world, the Lord has come! And, Father, You sent Your Son into the world to destroy the works of the evil one. We ask that all of the works of the enemy of our souls would be halted in Baghdad, Dawrah, and all of Iraq. May the angels sing there, again, “Peace on earth and good will to all.”
    May all people, military and civilian, in Iraq be assisted in giving up all bitterness, and wrath and anger and evil speaking with all malice. And may each one be kind one to another, forgiving one another as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven us.
    We crown You with praise, Lord Jesus this night, for You are so worthy. There is none like You Who though You were reviled, reviled not again. But You submitted Yourself to Him Who judges righteously, and became an example of forgiveness for all peoples. Oh, how I love You, Lord, for You have forgiven me. Amen.

I ask that You would protect the Christians there and help them to share Your Word with the Iraqi people. I pray for Your Holy Spirit to come upon Your children there. Lord, give us pure hearts and minds to do Your work here too. Help us to keep praying and to see and hear the cries of the oppressed even though we are so far from them.

    BOB - COLORADO Says:

    Lord, as I go to prayer it is now Friday morning in Bagdad. May Your Spirit settle over that city today. There are people there who are determined to cause rebellion and disruption in the city. Their thoughts are evil. I pray that you might cause their evil minds to be centered on something else and cause a Spirit of Peace to be felt by many. There is nothing too hard for You. We pray for protetion over the families whose husband and father are soldiers or police in that city; men who are away from home and meet so much violence. We trust you for all of the needs. Thank you – Amen and Amen.
