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.

    Heavenly Father,

    You are above all. You are more powerful than all other powers combined. There is a power within Iraq that seeks to rule the hearts of some people. It is the power of revenge. It is a stronghold in the hearts of some. You know who they are. I pray through Jesus that you would rip that stronghold out of those hearts. Replace that power with love, understanding and respect for all people. You are love, God. Let Your power rule in all the hearts in Iraq. When love rules peace prevails. Again we come to You with the sole purpose of asking You to bring peace to the city of Baghdad. It will not happen without Your divine intervention. We cry out to You this day, “Let peace prevail in Baghdad”. Through Jesus, Amen

    Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!!! Standing in agreement with Wayne’s prayer and those of my brothers and sisters here. Holy One, we ask that You would bind the strongman over this land, in Jesus’ name! Release Your Spirit anew and please mend the hearts of the people that they would be able to receive Your love, Your mercy, Your Truth. Please open their eyes that they might see the good plans You have for them and that they would realize the deception and lies that have led so many to sin against You. Be exhalted in Baghdad, in Iraq and over all of the Middle East. Prepare the land that the harvest would be plentiful for Your glory, in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

    Judith Connell, Greenbank, On., Canada Says:

    Yesterday, a suicide bomber decided to detonate himself beside a large group of children receiving candy from a few troops. ONLY CHILDREN DIED.

    There were, of course, many life-threatening injuries and astonishingly the Iraqi medical system and facilities have not been brought up to Western standards so more will die unreported in the papers.

    Just as the media goes for children and animals for pizzazz, so too the irrational bombers. Satan is very happy indeed. But we must remember that the ONLY way to turn the heads and hearts of the suicide bombers and those who recruit them and encourage them is PRAYER – just like the one for today. It is perfect to deal with the barbarism that took place yesterday.

    Thank You, in advance, Lord for turning the evil hearts and minds around. Each softened heart is an example of Your love and compassion. Again, thanks for the prayer to use to bring the spiritually desperate around to Your way.

    What a great thought!

    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 them 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 wisdom and knowledge to fight the war of freedom. In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen

    Dear Father in Heaven, I look to You in hope and expectancy that You will do great things in Baghdad, especially the greatest thing of all which is to bring many to knowledge and faith in You and in Your perfect Word. It is with great hope I pray that the darkness that has ruled many hearts and minds will be broken to make room for the ministry and counsel of Your Holy Spirit. May the desire for peace and healing in their city cause many to look to You and to obey Your truth. May we see and hear of great things being done in Baghdad to Your glory. Please restrain and hinder any who would resist Your will and purposes and let Your glory shine. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  18. 111
    Sherrill Says:

    Father, Mansour has been designated the “hot spot” for today. We pray a “red hot” prayer for those in that area today. But, Father, we also pray for those areas under any kind of threat, particularly a threat to our troops and allies and those Iraqis fighting for peace. Open the eyes of our political leaders – give them the wisdom to lead us in this challenging time. We ask it in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

    This morning Lord I ask you walk with the righteous in this city and protect them from those who have killing on their minds.
    Confuse the enemies of peace and destroy the plans they have laid for the innocent. We claim this city in the name of Jesus Christ and those he has called out of darkness. No weapon formed against them will prosper.

    Lord I lift our young soldiers to you today. I lift their safety, their strength, their hope up to you so that you might fill them with whatever it is they need. You are our glory and the lifter of our head, lift up their heads and hearts to you today in Jesus name.

    Dear Jesus;
    Thank Your for being our High Priest. I lift up your name both here in America, and Baghdad. Show your mighty Powers abroad.
    I send this scripture found in Psalm 40; verses 1-3 I waited patiently for the Lord; And He inclined to me,And heard my cry. 2. He also brought me out of a horrible pit,Out of the miry clay,And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. 3.He has put a new song in my mouth-Praise to our God;
    Many will see it and ear.And will trust in the Lord. In Jesus Name,
