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.

    Lord God, we sometimes focus on the evil and the bad and the wrong that is occurring right now in Baghdad and all the areas affected by the radical Muslims. But I can see your hand for good, even in that; you have brought together a band of Christians to pray. We have realized the helplessness of our own means, and the necessity to rely on your all-powerful intervention. You alone can bring change, Lord, and we fall to our knees in submission, asking that you touch the hearts of those seeking revenge. You have said that vengeance is yours. Help us as Christians to not be vengeful, but to allow you and your holy angels to accomplish what you purpose, through our prayers and actions as you reveal them to us. With thanksgiving for what you are doing, and what you are about to do. In Jesus’ precious name.

    Dear Jesus,
    I do pray there be no more revenge anywhere in this place(Baghdad). I pray you will turn the hearts toward you. If they are seeking after you…and they accept you, there can be nothing but love, peace and forgiveness. So be it ! In Jesus name!
    Amen

    Jean Says:

    Dear Father in Heaven, I pray again for Your will to be done in Baghdad today. Please release those whose thoughts have been taken captive to think that revenge is a reasonable response to their troubles. I pray that You will not let the evil one have dominion over the thoughts of the citizens of Baghdad to cause them to think this way. I pray, instead, that the troubles they have experienced will cause many to question the doctrine of revenge and to call out to You for help, and in repentance. May Your own people shine in that land as lights in a dark place and cause many to desire to seek You because of their love and their testimony. I pray that foreigners who came into Iraq to practice jihaad will be discouraged and go home so that the citizens of that land may be able to rebuild and restore. Help and bless any who come alongside to help in the restoration, including the troops who are their for that purpose. Please bless those troops who are far away from home and Christmas with an extra measure of Your strength and grace. May it be in Jesus’ dear and precious Name. Amen.

Lord we pray that you would bless those in Bagdad and all of Iraq who are seeking to bring peace and restore the cities so that people may live together in harmony. You came for ALL mankind and we pray that your Holy Spirit may cover the middle east tonight and may your people hear heavenly angels proclaiming your birth and ressurection. Protect the military and citizens of Iraq. May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We pray this in your precious name Lord Jesus. Amen

    It is always a pleasure to ask You, Lord to change the minds of those who would take revenge against any hard-working person who takes part in Your plans. It is the hearts of everyone whom You seek and we are so glad to ask You to do that everywhere in Your world. Bless You wonderful Trinity.

I thank you for all that you are doing in Iraq and in all the protection you are giving them and our soldiers. Let your love and light always shine down upon them and the Holy Spirit guide and direct their feet unto your pathways.

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 YOUR 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 PS ALL THE GLORY AND HONORS IS YOURS.

    Father God: I pray today that You will convict the hearts of those whose plans mean harm to the people of Bagdhad. Help them to understand that they will reap what they sow, so now is the time to stop all of the bloodshed and let all of the people live in peace.

Grant HIM wisdom to do your precious will, nothing more, nothing less and thank you Jesus for ALL YOUR PROTECTION for EVERY ONE OF US! We adore you!

    Ann from AL Says:

    Father, the muslims say they believe that Jesus was a prophet. Then draw them to His teachings… to forgive your enemies, to love them, to bless them, to pray for them. Show them Your way, Father, not the way of honor killings. Prepare their hearts with a wooing by your Spirit to show them the TRUTH. Reach them thru dreams and visions to see Yeshua and yield their hearts to Him so they can have eternal life and peace of mind. Bless all those who are proclaiming the Truth in Iraq. Give them protection and great favor wherever they go. May signs, wonders, and miracles follow their proclamation of the good news. Amen

    Sarah Says:

    LORD, please work out Your perfect will in Iraq. Please dissolve all the hatred and revenge that is helping absolutely no one. Help those who feel that they have to kill in order for wrongs to be made right, to realize that two wrongs will never make a right. Please help them to see that this killing and destruction is all just a part of a vicious circle that will never end, unless someone decides to break the chain. Please let many decide today that they will be the one who makes a difference. LORD, they can only make a difference with Your help, so please let them see that their strength comes from You.

    Father, the devil is alive and well today in the world and in our individual lives. Help those who love You and seek peace to overcome satan’s strategies. Give us patience to defeat our frustrations and hope that we will succeed in our endeavors and that they will glorify You. We pray for protection for our troops, allies, the Iraqi police and citizens. We come against satan and all that he stands for, in Jesus’ Name, we pray. Amen

May your word that is shared by your servants spread onto the land, esp. into the hard-hearted. Lord God, I believe with you, they haven’t got a choice. So I lift these people into your hands and let your will be done. I thank you and praise you Lord. Protection over the police & our troops there. I ask also that your send your angels to cover our troops as well as their bases. In the name of Jesus Amen.

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    Revenge is such a heavy and pushy spirit that afflicts mankind. You are aware of the violence in Baghdad and Iraq that has revolved around the spirit of revenge. We pray today that You would break the bonds of the spirit of revenge in Baghdad. Let the modes of bondage be ripped apart and fall useless to the ground to be trampled upon as the people jump for joy in their release and in the new found peace in Baghdad and Iraq. You are an awesome being Almighty God. I love You and want to see You fully honored and glorified for all Your good actions. Please let there be a showering of Your Word upon the land of Iraq so that the people there will know how they are to live as You prescribe so that peace will continue to prevail in the land. Thank You so much for the good news coming out of Iraq. Thank You that the efforts of the troops has been successful. Bless each one who has worked so hard and under the stresses of being far from home. Give them Christian companionship to help them walk always in Your love. Again, thank You God for what You have done in Iraq. Through Jesus, Amen

    Blessed be Your name Father. Blessed be Your son and the son of man. Bless the nation of Iraq and American troops with peace and a hopeful future that will build in Your name and peaceful spirit. Bring the Holy Spirit upon the haters and violators of peace. Fill them of conviction even by their own hearts and family. Help them see the truth, a new way, a new vision. Cleanse the hate and revenge from this place. Holy Holy Holy to God of the Highest and to our sweet Lord Jesus, our light of hope. In Your glorious name I pray this Amen.

    Lynn Says:

    Dear LORD Jesus, it is with thanksgiving that i write this prayer – thanksgiving that you have given me the grace to know You, and this prayer that you will extend that grace to the citizens of Baghdad that they will know You also. For through Your grace will they be able to let go of the revenge and violence that they have been taught and see in their everyday lives. Protect each one who is a follower of You, Jesus, and protect each one of our brave soldiers who stands ready to fight for the freedom of the Iraqi people and the freedom of us back here in the great USA. Thank you also for this forum of the Baghdad Prayer Patrol that we may continue daily to lift up that city and especially our soldiers, to build a hedge of safety around each one of them not just in Baghdad, but all over the middle east, that each one may return home safely. Father, it is with great gratitude that i come before you in prayer, in Jesus’ most precious and holy name, Amen and Amen.
