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.

    May confusion come upon all who would distroy and bring evil to this place.

    Father, I thank you for this day to live and breath in your love, peace, joy, grace and mercy.
    Father in your Word you tell us “Vengeance in mine” Lord I ask that you would pour forth revenge on the wicked insurgents in Iraq whose heart will not change because of the hatred within them. Pour forth your light and love upon the land of Iraq. Let the ministring Angel and Holy Spirit speak to the hearts of the Iraqi’s of your love. May they see and feel your love. May they come to know your Son Jesus as their Savior.

    Father I BIND the spirit of vengence and hatred that is heavy over the land of Iraq. Father release PEACE,LOVE, AND YOUR WORD upon the people. Help to see that you are the JEHOVAH JIRAH, and may they see your hand covering them as a hen covers her chicks. Give them a BREAKTHROUGH as only you can do letting the light break through the darkness. Give the Iraqi police and soldiers the strenght and courage like you gave David, Joshua, and Gideon. may they also receive your widdom and knowledge to fight the war of freedom. In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen

    Frank & Nancy (USMC Ret'd) Says:

    Father, in the Name of Jesus we come to You with thanksgiving in our hearts that You are Lord and there is no other. Thank You that You love those people in Baghdad as much as You love us and that the same Jesus who died for us also died for each resident of Baghdad. Forgive us Lord when we seem to think that, somehow, we are more deserving of Your mercy and grace because of who were we are. “For God so loved THE WORLD…” “Vengence is Mine,says the Lord.” That being the case then, no one in this world has the right to enact vengence against another. Those who do are trying to make themselves god. Forgive them, Lord, and create a new heart within them. A heart like Yours, full of love and compassion for others, including their “enemies” in Baghdad, all over Iraq and the entire world. Lord, we realize that this battle belongs to You and You can not loose it! WE SHOUT VICTORY AND FREEDOM IN THE NAME OF OUR GOD; FATHER, SON AND HOLY GHOST. TO WHOM ALL GLORY AND HONOR IS DUE!!! Amen and amen.

    Melodie Says:

    “A fledgling group of Sunni and Shiite religious leaders met for the first time in Baghdad last week to condemn sectarian violence in their country, a move US military officials framed as a first of its kind and a small step toward broader political reconciliation. . . Billed as the Iraqi Inter-Religious Congress, it was the largest number of religious leaders from the broadest geographic base in Iraq to meet in 37 years, American officials in Baghdad say. Many of the 55 delegates, which also included Christians as well as Yazidi, a primarily Kurdish sect in northern Iraq, WERE THEMSELVES SOME OF THE ‘BAD ACTORS’ WHO HAVE DIRECTED SECTARIAN VIOLENCE, officials say.
    ‘The biggest miracle of the conference was that it was the first time since the war that these antagonists sat down in a room and had a reasonable dialogue instead of passing out ammunition,’ says Army Col. Micheal Hoyt, chief chaplain for US forces in Iraq. . .’If this step hadn’t occured, there wouldn’t be any movement in that direction,’ he says. ‘This is the foundational step to allow broader reconcilliation, at least among religious leaders, many of whom are perpetrators of violence, to begin to move forward.’….Media reports from Baghdad indicated that imams from various mosques in Baghdad have recently been encouraging each other to attend one another’s mosques for Friday prayer.”

    Our prayers are working! There is another meeting like this one in 2 months and we must support it. This also makes clear that there are not “good people” and “bad people” in Iraq, but all have the Christ in them and therefore the potential to rise above the human tendency for violence to the spiritual sense of unity and peace that is truly our Christly identity.

    14 “If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you.15 But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.
    16 “And when you fast, don’t make it obvious, as the hypocrites do, for they try to look miserable and disheveled so people will admire them for their fasting. I tell you the truth, that is the only reward they will ever get.17 But when you fast, comb your hair and wash your face.18 Then no one will notice that you are fasting, except your Father, who knows what you do in private. And your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.

    Heavenly Father, Call on Your servants to fast and pray for deliverance from the sins of unforgiveness and revenge. Grant us freedom by the Blood of Jesus Christ. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit to intercede for the captives in Iraq and the U.S.A. May Your Light illumine our darkness and cause the powers of wickedness to flee. Thank You ABBA.

    Dear Jesus fill the hearts and minds of the ones who seek to do harm with your love and compassion. May the revelation come to all who plan terroristic acts and bring revenge know that what you said in your word is true “Vengence is mine saith the Lord” it is not for them to judge and condemn their fellow man. Some how some way may this be known to these who hate and harm the innocent.

    Jon Henry Says:

    Heavenly Father, Almighty and merciful God of all creation, I come to You in faith and believing in Your limitless power over all the universe and Your ever faithful loving kindness and forgiveness to ask a blessing for Your children in conflict in Iraq. Route the transgressors and deliver Your people from these agents of evil. Bless the widows and orphans caught in the middle of this madness and make a way for them to survive and escape to safety. Protect our loved ones in harms way and bring them home to us safe and sound.

    Father God, I ask that You would send Your Holy Spirit to each and every wayward soul in Iraq and in all the middle east to wash over them with a sense of awakening and awareness to Your presence and Your will. Soften the hearts of these misguided followers of this religion that advocates sacrificing their young men and women with suicide bombs in the name of their false god and open their eyes to Your divine truth and affection. Let them bathe in the warm glow of Your unconditional loving kindness that will inspire them to seek Your forgiveness and receive the gift of salvation through faith in Your Son, Jesus Christ. Supernaturally replace their anger and hatred with Your heavenly love and compassion and lead them into an age of peace and contentment that surpasses all understanding. All these things I ask and pray in the precious holy name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen and amen

    Lois Says:

    Father God, I just want to thank you for loving ALL mankind. Thank you heavenly Father for the love you are pouring down on Iraq, Baghdad, and our troops fighting over there. Pour down your love upon the Iraqi soldiers and police who are fighting for freedom and peace in their in country. May your LOVE AND PEACE be felt over their land, and give them a sound mind with your knowledge from above.

    Lord I ask that the warring angels and your messenager angels be released to enter the land of Iraq and that you will receive all the glory. Father, WE condemn the revenge they have embraced for so long in Baghdad and Iraq. In the wonderful name of Jesus WE reject the dominion and spirit of revenge over Baghdad, because Baghdad is now your land. Jesus bring your judgement upon the spirit of revenge that rules there in Baghdad. Let YOUR WILL BE DONE IN BAGHDAD. May your BLESSING BE UPON BAGHDAD AND GIVE HER A “NEW DAY”.

    Father, I ask that you bind the mouths of the acussers, and give the people a “new found grace” to forget the past and MOVE FORWARD IN YOUR HOPE. May your presence be with our three soldiers like what was with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abendnego be upon our soldiers who was kidnapped, and may your protective hedge surround them. Let our soldiers and the Iraq’s find them safe and sound. I give you all the Glory, praise and honor that belongs to you only. In Jesus’ name I ask this be done. AMEN
