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.

    Amen Lord God,
    You have promised to protect your children and to lift up the lowly. You have promised that you would bring the haughty (oppressors) to their knees and humble them.
    Hear the prayers of those who are oppressed and lift them up – move the oppressors far from them and let your children live in peace. AMEN

    Heavenly Father,
    We come before You in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We know that children have a place in Your heart. Today, we come in agreement asking You to cover the children of Baghdad and this area with Your hand, tuck them under Your wing and shelter them from all harm. Post Your angels about them and speak to their hearts about You. Draw them sweet Papa, into Your love. Show them Your glory, strength, compassion, Spirit, and give them a VISION of hope. Thank You for the plans that You have for their lives and a renewal of self worth in their lives. Help each of them to know that they are special and loved by You like no other can love them. We bind confusion and fear away from them in Jesus name and loose Your Word, Spirit, & purpose ! In the mighty and precious name of Jesus.

    Dear Father I lift up the children of Iraq to you tonight and pray for their safety, Cover them and hold them in the hollow of your hand. Crush the enemy who would do harm to these innocent children. May our troops be a good example to them and may they grow to value freedom and peace for their land.
    Nothing is impossible for you dear Lord.We pray for all of Iraq that peace would prevail and we pray this in Jesus name. Amen

    Oh Heavenly Father – we do stand united under the authority of Jesus as You have given us this job to do – we command that no weapon meant for harming our soldiers and our allies will be effective over this month that alQueada has declared a step-up in attacks against the US military. You have said that when we ask, we should believe and not doubt. Father, I believe that You will honor our requests for our soldiers. Help us to do our part – to increase our prayers to You and worship of You. Help us to not fear during this time, but to stand firm and solid in the knowledge that throuh Jesus we can do all things because He gives us strength. We are commited to You, and commited to pray daily. Thank You, Jesus, Father God, that our requests go straight to Your ears. It is with confidence and love that I pray in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.

    Father, I praise Your Holy Name. I cannot look at the face of that child in the picture today without weeping. Father, will You please help him and all of the others like him that are probably running from rubble to rubble looking for their father, mother or other family members. PLease make Baghdad a safe place for these oppressed people. Let them have shelter, food and clothing. Please, Father, hold back the enemy; they have destroyed so much.
    In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen

    Today, Lord, in light of the new Al-Qaeda threat in Iraq, we come before you with boldness to ask for the people, soldiers, and police of Iraq. But especially, Lord, we ask now for our U.S. and coalition forces in Iraq. We ask Lord that you send forth your warrior angels to fight in behalf of our soldiers during the next month. We pray for your special protection against the darts and arrows of the enemy against our forces. Be round about them as the walls are around about Jerusalem. Give them songs of deliverance and dreams in the night seasons that they may have strageties against their enemies. We pray you would give General Petraeus and all in command, special wisdom, revelation and knowledge above their own to know how to fight this enemy. We also ask that the forces of darkness behind Al-Qaeda and the Sadr Brigades be neutralized in the name of Jesus. We ask Lord for your Blood to protect the people of Iraq, their armed forces and ours. We pray that the work of enemy will fall to the ground and become useless. As in 2 Chronicles 20, we pray that the enemy will begin to fight among themselves and all their threats and intentions would be met with the High Praises of God’s people in behalf of those who are facing this threat. Lord we Praise Your Glorious Name, for unto the Lamb and unto your Throne be Glory, and Power, and Honor and Blessing forever, and forever more.

    Your Word, O Lord declares, “The Lord is a Warrior!” Please be the Heavenly Warrior that You were against Pharoah, against Goliath, against Sennacherib, and so many other powers who got in the face of Your children, and threatened them. Show Yourself as the One Who fights for YOur people. Show Yourself as the God Who loves and cherishes and protects the little children from the enemy who is so much greater than they are. You are the Creator of the Universe and You hold all life in Your hands. We are helpless without YOu, and we cry to You for mercy. In Jesus’ name.

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    I pray that You would remove from Baghdad and Iraq the dangers that threaten the well-being of the children in that land. So much violence has been a part of their existence that they hardly recognize the sound of peace. They have known little of freedom to come and go without looking out for some enemy to do them harm. Please Lord make a better life for them. They could not choose where they were born. It is not fair that they should have to suffer so much violence in their homeland. I call out to You on their behalf to secure their land. Bind up the enemy so they are no longer to be feared. Melt the weapons so they are no longer to be used by the enemies against the children and their families. Keep the suicide bombers far from where the civilians gather. If their bombs must blow up then please let it be far away from any child or relative of the children. Please turn the destruction meant by the enemy forces to harm the innocents to be turned inward to do away with any plots conceived for future injury. Lord, I call on You day after day to make a good difference in Baghdad. I know You must get tired of hearing from me but I will sound like a broken record on behalf of the dear children. Please bring peace to stay in Baghdad and Iraq. Through Jesus, Amen

    Patricia/Greenville, SC Says:

    Abba Father, we praise You Oh Lord as we know that this minute all the children are hidden and protected under the wings of your angels. They are invisible to anyone wishing them harm. No mother will ever have to be in tears over the loss of a child. We praise You for Your provision for each and every circumstance that comes to threaten these children. We thank You that You are an enemy to their enemies and that You will crush any force that threatens them. We praise You for Your light which shines in darkness bringing hope and peace where there is fear and anxiety.. We do plead the blood of the lamb over all of Your people as watch Your glory unfold…In Him…Patricia

    Father, amid our joy and love of life, our happy days here among this blessed country, we will take time out never ever forgetting those who died for us to be safe and secure today. We thank God for those who have passed on, but especially we ask You, God, to bless those who are fighting today for these privileges. Help them to know they are not forgotten, Lord. We ask it in Jesus’ Name, Amen

    Dear Heavenly Father, I come before you with a heavy heart for the people of Iraq, and the coalition soldiers of all nations that are fighting for the freedoms for the Iraqi people. Threats have been made against the U.S. Soldiers and those working with them. I pray for your protection of these soldiers and Iraqi.
