20-Protect the Children

Scripture: “May he vindicate the afflicted of the people, save the children of the needy, and crush the oppressor.” -Psalm 72:4

Prayer: Lord, You are the God of the innocent. You look upon those who are oppressed with great favor and compassion. Your heart is toward the humble, and those who are cast down.

child.jpgI bring before You the children of Baghdad, and I ask that You would protect them today. Dispatch Your angels to watch over them and keep them from harm. Decree from heaven that this day be the “Day of the Child” in Baghdad. A day when no mother has to pick up her lifeless child from the street, and no father is seen weeping with a body in his arms.

According to Your Word Lord, “vindicate the afflicted today, save the children, and crush all those who promote violence and terror.” Let Your light from heaven shine down on Baghdad, and drive back the darkness. In Jesus name, amen.

    Father, thank You that You said, “Suffer the little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not; for of such is the kingdom of Heaven.” We know that You dearly love all little ones and don’t want to see them harmed, but Satan is just seeking to kill and destroy. Please, LORD, bind Satan from destroying young lives today. Let these children receive You as their Saviour when they’re old enough to understand. Please don’t let them grow up learning to hate and seek revenge. Please give Your angels charge over all the young children of Iraq today, and bring something into their path to let them know that You love them very much. Thank You, Father.

    Blessed and Dear Father in Heaven, You have taught us in Your Word that the least among us is the greatest and that You have great favor for the humble little children, holding them close to Your heart. Heavenly Father, we desperately need Your forgiveness because as we become preoccupied with the sinful activities of our world we so often overlook the needs and interests of these least among us. Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that the needs and interests of the children of Iraq and of Afghanistan will be overlooked no longer. I pray that those who have stirred up violence without thought of these little ones will become keenly aware of the evil of their attitudes and actions and come to deep repentance before You. I pray for violence to cease and for stability to be restored so that these little ones might be able to live in peace and security in their own homeland. I pray this in the Precious Name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Who taught us that it would be better for us to perish miserably than to cause one of these little ones who trust in Him to sin. Amen.

    Lois Lively Says:

    Oh Gracious and Merciful Father, I come to you today before your throne, and I pled for the little ones in Iraq, Baghdad, Afghanistan, and through out the Middle East to receive your protection. May I also now include the children in Africa where the Al Qaeda is located and trying to build up power and strength. Protect the the children and their parents here from their enemy. Father your new Word for 2008 was that we are to RECEIVE like a child receives, and to have FAITH like a child has faith(pure and innocent).

    Heavenly Father, help us to be like the children in receiving your word and love. May our faith be pure and innocent like theirs Father. In the name of Jesus, and His authoriy given in me, I pray that today and tonight the children will be protected by their angels through out the world. May all the children in warring cities and countries be given extra protection, love, and all the supplies that they need. Jesus send down the light that come from above upon the land of Iraq and allow it to cover ALL THE DARKNESS there. Jesus may the children receive your Word, love, and eternal life in their hearts and mindset. May they be given the chance to show forth your love and help your Kingdom grow there in their land. In the Holy name of Jesus I pray and add YOUR WILL FATHER BE DONE AND YOUR KINGDOM COME. Amen.

    Dear Lord,
    I do ask that you would protect the innocent children. They did not ask to be brought into this mess…I pray today, they will not be scared. They will feel your presence and protection. If they dream it will be good dreams and not nightmares. Give them your peace this day, I pray. Angels to spread their wings around them, everywhere they go. Totally covered by you! Thank you Lord! Amen and Amen

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    Daily You cover the world with light You created. Thank You for the sunshine and the way day has always followed night. Please let this be a day of protection for the children in Baghdad. I pray not only for their physical protection but that You would protect them from spiritual darkness throughout their lives. Please give them opportunities at their young ages to learn of You and Jesus and have their hearts turned in favor to You. Make a way for them to hear Bible stories and be treated with the kindness of Jesus who so loved the children and sought their companionship when others thought He should not give His time to the little ones. They are precious in His sight. The song says it all, “Jesus loves the little children.” Most powerful and able God Almighty please protect those precious children in Baghdad and Iraq today. Through Jesus, Amen

    Joan Gintella Says:

    Yes Lord, let this be the day of the child in Baghdad. We lift up these precious children to you to be blessed, taught, nourished and protected from all danger and harm. I come in agreement with my brothers and sisters in Christ that no child will be killed today, no deaths of children today dear Lord. Spare them Lord, wrap your loving arms around them and keep them safe. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen

  12. 223
    Dawn Says:

    Yes, Lord, send angels to keep those children safe. Today, keep them from seeing or feeling any hurt. Protect them and their families. Let it be a play-day for them with many blessings around them. Lord, you are mighty and we know of your love and mercy. Let it be shown in Baghdad today. In Jesus Name, Amen

  13. 222
    Betsy P. McAllister Says:

    Father, I agree with the prayers of my brothers and sisters in Christ, and I add this: that the children of the believers in Baghdad, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Israel would see Your glory. That these specific children would see the faith of their parents, the sacrifices their parents are making, the joy in the Lord that their parents reflect, and would know that You are God indeed. Let them see their parents prayers and their own prayers answered by the One True Living God in miraculous ways. Be glorified through the children, Lord. In Jesus’ name.

    Thank You Father for another day.Yes Father deliver the children from evil and hate. Protect their innocent hearts and preserve their souls. I pray You bring light and expose the hate for what it is, the weapon of Satan to keep as many in darkness as he can. Please Jesus help us against the real enemy here. Expose him Lord so all can see and expel him and the hate with Your light from this place. I pray this in Jesus mighty name, Amen.

    “May he vindicate the afflicted of the people, save the children of the needy, and crush the oppressor.” -Psalm 72:4

    Yes, LORD, that pretty much sums up my prayer. The oppressor is being crushed and for that we give praise. He has afflicted with octopus tentacles wrapped around many innocent people of all ages, but my heart bleeds especially for the children. May their present suffering of war NOT be in vain and may these children grow up under a holy wing of salvation, with minds open to the abundance of life to be had in Jesus Christ. SPEAK to these children, Father, and instill within them the certain knowledge that You are a GOOD GOD, that the sacrificial ending of their lives is NOT for a good cause. For You came to bring LIFE and in abundance of good and holy things. RAIN down upon the children of Baghdad and Iraq… enable them to SEE with their hearts and believe in their souls that the choices they make can lay the path toward peace in their land. Reach in with Your mighty arm to shed Light and reap souls that You might RAISE UP among the children a portion of that “marching-through-this-earth” army of the Lord, marching for right and standing for ultimate victory over evil. Let TRUTH win for that will be our cause for rejoicing! In Jesus’ name, I pray.

    Bless this site, stay the hand of the enemy who is ever strategizing and scheming to stop this mighty move of prayer. Bless the hands that organized it and strive daily to maintain it… May they be that extension into this cyberspace, DAILY, of Your arm moving over Baghdad and Iraq. Watch, O Lord, over their efforts, especially in the area of the technology needed. May the enemy be thwarted and may all his efforts be null and void where he tries to distract, delay, and defeat this ministry. We BELIEVE in prayer for we’ve seen it work in our own lives. We BELIEVE that Your ear is inclined to our cries. We BELIEVE that because we pray, Your compassionate heart is moved to act. THANK YOU, LORD, for the Baghdad Prayer Patrol, for the servants through whom You have caused this flow of obedience to Your directed instruction. Bless them, Father, with those heavenly blessings that are the greatest of rewards in this life. In JESUS’ name AMEN!

    Beverly Says:

    Lord I agree in prayer for the children and families of Bagdad…may the bullets and bombs of the enemy fail them. Let your power and glory be known, you are the only God, our wise and wonderful King! Thanks for your mercy and grace covering over Iraq. In Jesus Name, Amen.

    Loretta Worthy Says:

    Father, We lift up the children of Iraq and speak protection and blessing over them. Thank you that the children are seeing the difference between radical terrorists and people who are concerned for their welfare and who seek to protect them. Those who do violence and teach violence and hatred to children and other innocents will prosper no more. They are blotted out from all acceptance and memory. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

    Stan and Shannon-GA Says:

    Father,

    We lift up the innocence of children! We pray that your warring angels surround these children with your favor and presence! By faith we pray and believe that You are able to do more than we can know!

    Lord ENCOURAGE US!! Hear our prayers and touch our minds with Your still quiet voice. Jesus we do cry out! We humble ourselves and cry to you for deliverance, peace, and victory!

    Lord go before our troops and guard them from behind! We ask that the progress that has been made continue! Lord I speak destruction to Muqtada Al-Sadr and his demonic militia. As he calls for and end of his militias ceasefire I pray that any advances by his “troops” be met with the death blows from the warring angels, the US and Iraqi forces!

    Lord we fight for innocence and to propel freedom and salvation to the peoples of Afghanistan and Iraq. We denounce evil and the peoples who want to perpetrate this evil! We stand in the gap, we watch on the walls we look to the hills from where are help comes from!! Our only hope is You!! Lamentation unto You O Lord!! We cry out for the innocents!

    In the Name of Yeshua

    Anne Says:

    Father, You are the God above all gods and you are merciful and gracious. We lift our praises to you and come with thanksgiving for Your Son, our Redeemer. We ask for your light to shine in the darkness of this land,Iraq, and in our hearts today. We ask that your children there will be overshadowed by your hand- those who are in churches and those serving in the military. And for the children who cannot protect themselves, we ask you to cover them with Your wings. May they receive hope today and courage. May your Gospel go out to those who will hear.

    Heavenly Father, place Your Angels of Protection all around the innocent children of not only Baghdad, but all over the the world. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

    Brother Ray Eubanks Says:

    Hallelujah! Father, I pray that Matt. 21 be fulfilled in Bagdad and Iraq today: Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise? Let them rejoice in Christ our Saviour and in His mighty deliverance today. Jesus, continue to pour out your Holy Spirit in a dry and weary land that is beginning to receive the latter rain. Let your waterfalls of salvation pour over this land as you continue to lead,guide, and direct the American and Iraqi troops to crush the enemy! We give you all the praise, all the thanks, and all the glory! In Jesus name, Amen.

    Joan Bowe Says:

    Amen and amen! Holy One, I stand in agreement with the prayers offered here for the little ones, especially with Sharon’s as she quoted the very verse in Luke 17:2 that You brought to my remembrance as well. Dear Father, these children are precious to You. They are innocent and should be protected, not to be used as human bombs or causualies in an adult war where they should know better to murder as they do. As our sister said, please protect the innocent children all around the world. Jesus, our example and Lord, call the little children unto Himself. He embraced them, He never caused they any harm. May we walk as He walked and show the world how to honor God which includes loving children and not harming them. Let it be so, in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

    Lily Says:

    Dear Father: Thank You for how You are moving in the situations over in Baghdad. Ma living in Iraq. Lord Compell Your Angels of Mercy to surround each child, and to protect each one.
    I ask furthur that each child be filled with the Holy Spirit and the sweet annointing from Christ himself.
    In Jesus name,
    Amen

    Sharon Says:

    Dear Heavenly Father, I come to You in the name of Jesus—that powerful and authoritative name in which we trust. I thank You that we have been given authority to use the name to bring to bear Your will in the situations on the earth. I agree with the prayers of all on this list. You have said that it is better that a millstone be place around the neck of a person and that person be dropped into the sea than if that person hurts one of the least of these children of Yours. That is how much You love the children. So, in the name of Jesus, I call forth Your will to be done and Your kingdom to come as it pertains to the children of Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa, the United States, and all around the world. I pray for the homeless children, those whose parents are ravaged by disease and those in our schools here in the US who are faced with the enemy’s sudden violent attacks. I pray against the abduction, rape, and killing of children. In the name of Jesus, I call forth Your protection, Your truth, Your light, Your love, and Your Life Abundant. Bring forth Your truth through the lives of people You have positioned strategically in these places. Holy Spirit go and breathe on the situations and the lives of these children. Deposit Your Word into the lives and hearts of these children so that the next generation of people have a different mindset—a mindset of peace and restoration and of love and unity. In the name of Jesus, I command the defeat of the evil plans of the enemy today in all these places. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
