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.

    In the spirit of this prayer I, an individual, choose to forgive those who have harmed me and mine. I forgive. I forgive full and free. Help me O G-d to forgive. Let it begin with me.

    Our Father in Heaven, how thankful we are that You are looking down upon this Earth today and see and know every need. Today we pray for the people in Baghdad that are so in need of your presence in their lives and their country as a whole. The few Believers are standing together to ward off the on-slots of the enemy, who is determined to destroy the Lord’s Work in their country. By standing together they have the Promise “when two or three —-“, knowing You will hear and answer. Faith is a wonderful virtue in lives, and they all have faith in You. We pray for the police and officials for protection, and wisdom in their activities. Thank You for answering our prayers. AMEN & AMEN

    For Baghdad, Karrada district, and all Iraq, we ask, Father for the power of revenge to be broken. May the peace of God which passes all understanding enfold each soul today. May each one acknowledge Your Sovereignty in all situations, so that he/she can trust in You to right the wrongs. For, You have declared, “Vengeance is Mine, saith the Lord.” We submit our souls and the souls of those in Iraq to You Who judge righteously, in Jesus name, the Righteous Branch, amen.

    Mary T. Says:

    Dear Lord: Thank you for the privilege to pray for such a needy cause. Praise you Dear Lord for you are the God of all flesh and nothing is impossible to you. After all, this is the area that experienced a bleached Jonah that preached Repentence and a whole nation repented and stood off judgment for 100 years. My goodness, what a miracle. Isaiah 19 says the day will come during the Messianic Kingdom where you will call Assyria, modern day Iraq, “The work of My Hands.” I firmly believe you are taking the work of our US Soldiers and honoring it by saying it is YOUR Work by YOUR Hands. What an honor to our US Soldiers!
    Please begin the process of peace and cooperation between natives and our Americans still there. Protect our sons and daugters and provide for them Dear Lord. Send angels to work a mighty work of redemption for the Land, the people and the culture. May Iraq be a place of refuge in the troubled days ahead for many peoples. May it be a covert from the storm. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

    Donna Says:

    LORD of all creation, when I saw the stars in Your heaven tonight, it reminded me of Your awesome power – how You spoke all that into being and how it all holds together by Your will. Thank You for giving such wonderful evidence of Your sovereignty and majesty. Nothing is too big for You or too small. So I bring to You those in Iraq who are constantly fighting against each other and ask that You break the spirit of revenge that resides in them and is over them. Speak it into oblivion, LORD. Crush it beneath Your feet. Chain it up and throw it in the abyss. And let those go free who have been bound up by this evil spirit – but in such a way that they know that Jesus Christ is their Liberator and their Savior! Amen

  23. 731
    Betsy P. Says:

    Father, You are the Creator of all, the Lover of all You have created, and the Sustainer of all. Thank You for the people of Baghdad, Dawrah, and all Iraq for whom You have done wonderful things. May they know the blessing of salvation through Jesus Christ, so that they will lay down their vengeance. May they have the peace of Jesus which makes different people one, and breaks down the middle wall of partition between them and You.
    “Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted above the earth. I will be exalted above the nations.”
    Father, in Jesus name I pray, amen.
