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.

    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 create a culture of joy and face storm with strength, so now is the time to stop all of the bloodshed and let all of the people live in peace. Rise up a standard of righteousness in Bagdad. Establish a people of praise who will offer to the entire world a testimony of your faithfulness and goodness and of your great salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ. Lord God, you have told us that the mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. Grant us freedom by the Blood of Jesus Christ. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit to intercede for the captives in Iraq and Bagdad. May Your Light illumine them from darkness and cause the powers of wickedness to flee. May they have divine encounters with You in visions and dreams that will bring them face to face with their Redeemer and Savior, Jesus. Amen

    Dear Lord:
    We are all in agreement for building up Iraq and liberating their victimized population that find themselves caught between waring factions which oppose peace.
    Have pity on the families that have to try to survive, live and raise their children in this daily existence of turmoil and destruction.
    Lord, the only way this could be justified would be, and I believe it to be the case, that You, Dear Lord, are overturning and overturning so new beginnings will come forth…”For those who sat in darkness have seen a Great Light.”
    Shout for Joy Iraq, our Soldiers not only bring you peace and order, medicine and prayers, they also bring you the knowledge of a Savior, and His Name is Jesus Christ.
    Bring peace and salvation and safety and miraculous deliverances in Iraq, Afghanistan and in Jerusalem Dear Lord. All Glory and Honor is due you. In Jesus Name I make these petitions. Amen

    Blessed be Your Name, Oh Lord Most High. Praises and honor belong to You. I thank You for Your wisdom and Your ways. Yours are the ways of righteousness and peace. Dear Father in Heaven, I pray that any citizens of Baghdad who have been wearing themselves out with bitterness and anger will be released from that cycle and come to repentance. May their hearts be softened to hear the whisper of Your Spirit, dear Lord, and may they be amazed to learn that the only true God is a God of love and forgiveness and peace. I pray that You will destroy the works of darkness that have kept them from seeing Your ways until now and release them from the grip of the evil one. Dear Father in Heaven, I pray for a healing in Baghdad that will spread out to influence and bring healing throughout Iraq and even throughout the Middle East. May Your Holy Spirit have the victory. May Your will be done. May it be in Jesus’ Precious Name. Amen.

    Dear Father,

    I pray for every soldier around the world, may they feel your presence, and know You as Lord and Savior. Fill every street in Iraq with the power of our Lord Jesus. Bind satan and his demons, and may anyone who goes against Your Will be convicted of their sin and see themselves as you see them Lord, and fall on their knees and repent. You are the answer for all needs around the world, remove the blinders from all who need you for Salvation that they will see You as Lord and Savior. All that reject you have made their choice, deal with them according to Your Will Lord. I give You Praise and Honor and Glory in the Name of Our Lord Jesus.

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    Through Jesus I come expectantly into Your presence. You created humans and made them to experience emotions. But sometimes Satan tries to tempt people to let the emotions reign in their lives more than Your word reigns. Revenge can be a result when emotions are not put under control by Your word. You are a God of love and judgement. Revenge belongs only to You and people overstep their authority when they take it upon themselves to get back at someone who they feel has done them harm. Only You have the vantage point to see the whole situation and make judgement. I pray for the area of Baghdad and Iraq that You would put down any efforts by humans to take revenge into their own hands. Plant seeds of love where revenge tries to take root. Let revenge on the part of humans wither away. Make Your word the force that drives the actions of the people instead of the temptations thrown at the people by Satan. Lead them not into temptation. Your will be done, through Jesus, Amen

    Lord, you say in your word, ‘Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord, I will repay.’ We ask that your word would reverberate throughtout all Iraq. We declare that the Spirit of Vengeance belongs unto you and unto you alone. We pray that the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people would be changed to reflect your glory and that you would rule over their enemies of retaliation and revenge. May they be as dust in the wind and wax in the fire. In Jesus Name we pray, Amen!

    Betsy McAllister Says:

    Father, please enable the people of Baghdad, Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel, and all of the Middle East to “Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking be put away from them with all malice.” Cause them to “be kind, tenderhearted, forgiving one another as God also for Christ’s sake has forgiven us.” (Eph. 4:31,32)Let their sleep be sweet tonight, uninterrupted, except by dreams of You. In Jesus’ name. amen.

    Lois Lively Says:

    Oh gracious and merciful Father, I thank you for loving us so much from the bottom of my heart. 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.

    Father I BIND the spirit of vengence and hatred that is heavy over the land of Iraq in the mighty and powerful name of JESUS. Father release PEACE, LOVE, AND YOUR WORD upon the people. Lord may Iraq and the whole Middle East along with our soldiers come to know and understand Your Word in Jeremiah 29:11, which says “For I know the plan I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Lord God Almighty, I DECLARE AND DECREE that the whole Middle East and Iraq will know your plans for them through the help of the Holy Spirit, which you will send down to lead and teach them of the “new future and hope” that comes only by You. I DECLARE AND DECREE that our soldiers will know and accept your new future and your new hope you will give them with delight and joy in their hearts. Father, I ask this in the Holy name of Jesus and May YOUR KINGDOM come and
    may Your will BE DONE on earth as its written in heaven. I give you all the glory and honor for answering all our prayers gone up before you today. Amen

Let Your Light shine brightly over Baghdad this day, this week, this month, this year until every bit of darkness is revealed and forced to leave. Please send forth Your warring angels to do battle against wickedness and Your ministering angels to heal the hearts of men, touching them by Your Spirit, oh God, to discern that which is good and that which is evil and that they might know You as a God of love and mercy, being drawn to You by Your goodness and by Him which You sent because You so love the world. We give You thanks and praise as we rejoice in Your faithfulness and good plans. Glory to You, oh God.
