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.

    Mercy. Mercy. G-d of Glory, Mercy, Grace, Love and Peace give to the Troops and Support Personel in a mighty way. Give what they need. Protect them. Protect their backs. Lift up people who will pray. Pray without all the information. But pray for Iraq and Baghdad. Pray for the Troops and Support People. Amen

    Father, Nothing is too difficult for You! Father, our soldiers need protection like never before! It is not because they are innocent or special, but because they are made in Your likeness, that I claim Your protection over them in these waning days of our military presence in Iraq. LORD, You know the plans of the enemy. Foil them. Screw them up. Foul them up. Let their plans go awry. Let them be terribly unsuccessful. Twist their heads and their hands and trip up their feet. But give our soldiers clear heads and strong hands. Provide wisdom and discernment for all making decisions.
    And I pray especially for those having to deal with death and injury. Give them peace. Enable them to reconcile all the things they’ve witnessed with Your plans for their lives. Help them to forgive and forget. Heal their brokenness. Give them rest. Console them. Comfort them. Draw them close to You so that they can receive Your strength. All in Jesus’ name. Amen

    Dear Father, You know I’m posting the e-mail below from a soldier in the Middle East so others can pray for this situation. I lift these dear soldiers before you again, and ask that you minister to their every need.

    “We have a new group of Chaplains and assistants that have rotated here and while we are in a safe place, we are also one of the places where all of the bodies come out of the combat zone headed back to America. One of the young assistants asked my group to lift him up in prayer tonight as he had been up for 26 hours and having to help care for the human remains mission. He has seen some of the horrors of war today and is hurting. While I have carried caskets out of Iraq in my aircraft, we never go “behind the scenes” as the medical professionals and clergy. They have a difficult job and are only helping out because the Chaplain that normally does this mission has been so busy (3 aircraft in 18 hours) that they wanted to give him a break from this difficult job. I don’t see much on Iraq in the regular news, but things over here our getting worse and I think everyone is trying to get a piece of the Americans while they can. Also tonight, in our men’s Bible study group we have EOD guys (bomb squad guys I guess you’d call them). These guys and their teammates have to stare death in the face on a regular basis, unlike most of us here at my base. Having young people who disarm bombs to protect our guys in your Bible study definitely sets a tone. Anyhow, 3 of their friends were wounded today in a couple of different explosions up north. Other than the Chaplain, an old guy like me, these guys are so young. One of the young ladies on the bomb squad went home to bury her Husband just 2 weeks ago; he was a Marine bomb squad guy that was recently killed.”

    Dear Lord, please work miracles for our troops and bring them home safely and victoriously. In Jesus’ name. AMEN.

    Lord, You are the God that’s full of love and mercy. Your compassion covers all Your glorious works. Your acts are always righteous, and You are always faithful and true. You have never failed us on any of Your promises. Father, Lord Jesus, and Holy Spirit I come and bring to You the people who perpetuate violence that’s seen in Baghdad. I ask in the name of Jesus, to condemn those who bring the revenge they embrace, and to completely remove it from their hearts. Father, Baghdad belongs to You, therefore, I boldly stand against the dominion of revenge that’s over Baghad. Let today be a brand new day in Baghdad. Give to the people there forgiveness, coooperation, and peace. May they receive a new found grace to release the past and to move forward in hope. In the blessed name of Jesus I pray and I give You all the glory for Your glorious answer to prayer. Amen and Amen

    Father, God of mercy, I pray that You may show Yourself and Your love, forgiveness and grace to the people of Iraq and in Baghdad today. Strengthen those who give their all to protect the defenseless. Lord, bring out into the light the promoters of violence, hatred and never ending revenge. Take away their shelter in the darkness and bring an end to the deadly cycle revenge creates. In Jesus’ name I pray for peace and for the protection of our troops and the peace lovers in Baghdad, Amen.

    Most beautiful Lord and Savior…I praise You!! You are not the accuser and there’s no condemnation in You! I praise You for Your love and holiness, Your mercy and grace! Lord, I ask that You would bless the nation of Iraq with Your truth, love and mercy! I pray that You would help the police and troops with Your divine guidance and that they would come to know You as their Lord and Savior. For that is who You are! They need You, Lord Jesus. I also pray for the people of Iraq. Lord, please have mercy upon them and prepare their hearts to receive You as the believers go about sharing Your Word. May they learn of Your mighty miracles and know that You are their Lord, too! I ask these things in the precious name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Amen and amen.

    Donna Says:

    Father, break the power of revenge that has beset Iraq for eons. Only YOU! Only You, LORD, are able to change men’s hearts. Only You can change lives. Only You can make a heart of flesh out of a heart of stone. Bring glory to Yourself today in Baghdad by breaking the power of revenge and freeing the captives. Amen

    Betsy P. Says:

    Lord, You are the God of Truth and the Truthful God. Your Word declares that the one who plans to wreak havoc on others is a victim of his own deadly inventions. Show this to be the case to the ones who are plotting against the lives of others in Baghdad, Shula, and all Iraq. Cause them to turn away from death and destruction to the abundant life that is in Christ Jesus, in Whose name we pray, amen.

  12. 692
    Karola Says:

    Father,I pray today that You may bring real hope to Baghdad and Iraq. Give hope to the peacekeepers that their work is not in vain and that their losses and sacrifices are contributing to a better future for this land and that they are part of Your plan, Lord. Give hope to the local peace loving people that there is a future for them and for their country and that it will be a better future. Father, I also pray for Your almighty hand upon those, who do not want to align themselves with Your plans and continuously and fervently work with violence and hatred against Your plan for peace. Convict them of their sin, Lord, and destroy their plans against righteousness and prosperity. You know each one of them, Lord, and even while we are sending our troops against them, I pray that You may work Your powers to wipe out their evil plans and plots. Stand with our troops and empower local men and women to stand up against the violent and bring them down. Father, I pray in Jesus’ name for a real hope and a prosperous and righteous future for Baghdad aligned with Your plans, Amen.

  13. 691
    Carla Jo Says:

    You are always looking for sinners who will be drawn to repent. Draw the revengeful to yourself. If they resist today, let their plans backfire, be stopped, cause notice that revenge is wrong. Keep the definitions clear according to Your Word and not a twisted evil call. Protect the target today. Keep the innocent safe. Amen

    Carla Jo Says:

    Mercy. Mercy. Mercy. Mercy on Baghdad. Mercy on America. Mercy. Mercy. Mercy. Oh my G-d, have mercy. Amen

    Luann Beasley Says:

    Lord of all, I pray that You would shut the mouth of the accuser in Baghdad. I ask that there would be a desire for peace and unity. Lord, guide the people of Baghdad to humility, forgiveness and love for one another. I pray that You would help them to focus on peaceful answers that would bless the people. Protect Your believers there and guide them to where You want them to be. May Your Holy Spirit be upon them as they speak Your truth. Dispatch Your angels to protect them from harm and give them a new found faith and love for Your that is so strong and deep. Thank You for Your love and forgiveness. Thank You for all that You are, Most High Lord Jesus. Amen.

    sabrina Says:

    Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, break the power of revenge from the hearts of those who are seeking revenge. Let their hearts of stone, hated, and bitterness be broken in Jesus name. I cover the innocent people, our troops, Iraqi police, and true allies with the Blood of Jesus from the tops of their heads to the soles of their feet. In Jesus name I pray and give thanks! Amen

    Karola Says:

    Father, in agreement with this prayer I ask You to erase thoughts of revenge from the Iraqi people’s minds. Only with Your help and through forgiveness and love can peace settle into this land. We need You, Father, Your love and Your ways. May many today give up thoughts of revenge, hateful thoughts and evil plans and instead focus on their families, on rebuilding. Lord, protect our troops and grant them peace of mind and soul. Protect them from evil and guide their thoughts and eyes to successes rather than troubles in their work so that they, too, may be protected from thoughts of revenge. Father, I pray that Baghdad may see Your light of love, peace and forgiveness today in Jesus’ name, Amen.

  18. 686
    Betsy P. Says:

    Father, the psalmist said, “I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” Psalm 27:13. Many in Baghdad, Karrada, and all Iraq undoubtedly feel this way, too. We are looking for Your goodness in the land of Iraq. Thank YOu for all that You have done to lead this nation to the place that it is today. Thank You for the lives spared and the bodies and hearts healed. Thank You for the restoration that has been done.
    Now, we are asking that You would break the power of revenge and control the troublemakers wherever they are. Expose them to the Light and to the Truth and draw them into Your Kingdom of righteousness, joy, and peace in the Holy Spirit, I pray in Jesus name, amen.

    Dottie Says:

    Dear Father I praise You for the many answers to prayer. Father I pray today for Baghdad and all the cities in Iraq that are under seige. Father You wish that none should perish. I lift up those in Baghdad who do not know You and I ask for You to visit them in dreams and any way You choose so that they will not perish but have everlasting life. Protect the city of Baghdad and send Your angels of peace over this land. I pray in Jesus name. Amen

    Sabrina Says:

    Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, break the power of revenge from over Iraq, nations, countries all around the world. Let the strong man who comes to bring forth confusion and revenge be bound, and let the spirit of peace be loosed. In Jesus name I pray and give thanks; and I cover all of Your sheep with the Blood of Jesus from the crown of their heads to the soles of their feet. Amen

  22. 682
    Karola Says:

    Father, I know You are grieved by the violence, hatred and thoughts and actions of revenge You are witnessing in Baghdad. I ask You for Your intervention and favor and a chance for hearts and minds to be opened to change for the better. Lord, release Your mighty power upon those who refuse to stop promoting violence and continued revenge in this land. Nobody is above You, Lord, and I pray that those who are unwilling to see the need for peace will no longer find people to listen to them. May forgiveness replace revenge in the minds of the people and this vicious cycle of violence end now. Father, I ask Your protection for those who go out and promote peace, protect the innocent and lend a helping hand to the re-builders. I lift them up to You today in Jesus’ name, Amen.

  23. 681
    Jean Says:

    Gracious Heavenly Father, please help the people of Iraq to desire peace, rather than revenge. I pray that any who stir up hatred would be discredited. I pray that the people would tire of the cycles of violence. May Your Gospel come to those people so that they might understand that there is a much better way. May it be that many are able to find their salvation, Your way, Dear Lord, which is through Your mercy and the sacrifice of Your Son for the complete remission of sins. In Jesus’ Powerful and True Name. Amen.

    Dottie Says:

    Dear Father give the people of Iraq a new hope. Send Your Holy Spirit to visit them and may they feel that prescience in their homes and lives. Stay the hand of any enemy who is planning evil acts. It is Your will that all should come to know You. Someday every knee will bow and every tongue confess You as Lord. May that day come Father and especially to this land of Iraq. I pray in Jesus name. amen
