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.

    O Lord Jesus, be near to all young children, that in the peril and confussion of this age their growing spirits may take no hurt at our hands, and grant to parents such sure knowledge of thy love that they may guide their children with courage and faith.

    Dear Father in Heaven, I pray that those who are careless and thoughtless of others’ lives will be fully restrained today and prevented from doing harm in any form. I pray for the safety of the children of Baghdad and of all of Iraq. Let us also be mindful that these little ones learn by what they see adults doing and that any who are disregarding their safety and their needs might be sowing seeds of hatred and revenge in their little spirits. Father, what we need is a people submitted to You and to Your will. Please help the peace-loving people of Bagdad and the troops who have come in to try to stabilize that nation to do everything that is needed to bring an end to conflict and destruction. I pray that among them many will respond to You and to Your Holy Spirit’s guidance. Have mercy on us, oh Lord, for we are a rebellious and sinful people who have had little regard for You or for Your Word. Might repentance be found in many hearts today. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    Prayer warriors– keep rocking! Last night in my homegroup I found out a wonderful, Godly couple in our church from India found the Lord in the Middle East. The husband’s family became believers in Bahrain years ago and used to follow the sign of the fish to underground worship meetings and prayer gatherings. This was particularly true in Saudi where the church was underground. The wonderful news is the Holy Spirit is moving in a mighty way in the Middle East even if it is not broadcast on our news channels. I was told that what is reported is at best half truths, and God is raising mighty men and women of God in that land. The military are appreciated over there and the troops are helping free these people to worship as they want. I cannot tell you how much this encouraged me to know our prayers are having direct, tangible results.

    Praise Your Holy Name, Lord, and we thank and worship You in spirit and in truth.

    Amen! fellow Canadian.

    Lord, I ask You to please protect the many little ones in Iraq today. So many of them won’t really be able to understand completely what’s going on; all they may really know is fear. Please give each and every one of them an angel’s charge, and protect them from harm. Please don’t allow them to grow up and learn to hate, but rather let them find You, the only true Prince of Peace at an early age. LORD, You are the only one who can change their lives around and give them hope. Please bring someone into their lives to tell them of Your great unconditional love and forgiveness. I trust You to work in a mighty way today, and I love You because of that.

    Donna Says:

    Dear Father, As I behold our beautiful grandchildren, I feel so blessed that they are free. I pray for the children in Baghdad who are suffering the horrors of war. Put your loving arms around them and protect them. They are so innocent and vulnerable. Guide them, care for them and shield them from harm. Jesus loves all children. Our troops are there to protect them as they would their own children at home. Thank you for Your love and help in these times of deep distress. Amen

    Judith Connell, Greenbank, On., Canada Says:

    HALLELUJAH! While it was wonderful to hear from Wayne recently saying it appeared that violence had been reduced in Baghdad and that there was more safety abounding, I must say that I was even more thrilled and thankful to the Holy Trinity when on our local NEWSNET station in Toronto had as a stringer moving below the news reader that INDEED, it was considered that the streets of Baghdad were more peaceful now! It now seems that the NEWS world knows something is happening in a positive way in Baghdad! HALLELUJAH, WE SING PRAISES TO HIS NAME!

    Lois Says:

    Heavenly Father, Thank you for this day that you spoke forth, may you receive ALL THE GLORY, PRAISE AND HONOR that is rightly yours. Release ALL THE PLANS and WILL you have written in heaven for this day be done on earth. May your Kingdom come Lord soon according to Your timeing and not ours.

    Gracious and loving Father, in Matthew 18:6 we read that “If ANYONE causes one of these little ones to loose faith, tht it would be better for them to have a millstone hung around their neck” Lord I pray that ALL OF THE ENEMIES in the Middle East, Iraq, and Karrada receive their due punishment for harming YOUR children, and FUTURE children in your Kingdom. Loosen the angels that are assigned to protect these chilren in Iraq and Karrada like what is written by the Holy Spirit thru David in Psalm 91.

    In Psalm 18:2 David writes that you was his ROCK, FORTRESS, AND SAVIOR; Father I ask that this will be done for the children and their parents today. Give them strenght that only comes from you, and your protection. Help that the parents will not have to suffer and greive today due to loosing a child. I DECLARE TODAY WILL BE A *DAY FOR THE CHILDREN* not one will have a hair remove from their head. And, Heavenly Father may all the parents and children in Iraq hear you telling them “DON’T BE AFRAID; FOR I AM WITH YOU” as written in Isaiah 41:10. Allow them to receive this new insight and let YOUR LIGHT shine down upon all of Iraq, and REMOVE ALL the darkness that is covering that land. Lord God Almighty this is your land and I DECLARE THAT YOU WILL FIGHT AND TAKE BACK THIS LAND FROM THE ENEMY. In the precious name of JESUS Christ our Savior, Lord and King I pray this and give you the glory in advance for all that will be done through all these coming up to the trone room today. Amen and Amen

    Jon Henry Says:

    Heavenly Father, I give You thanks for the saints of this prayer group, who I count as part of my family of faith and mentioning them always in my prayers; That You, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may hear and render all divine assistance to answer these requests. Thank You Lord, for the precious gift of this day and the many blessings You generously shower Your loved ones with. Forgive us Lord of all our sins and debts that are displeasing to You. Wash us all clean of our unrighteousness in the blood of the Lamb. Renew us and make us acceptable in Your sight again. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit and guide us in all You would have us do in service to Your kingdom.

    I come to You in prayer asking in faith and believing in Your infinite power and wisdom over all the universe and everything it holds for a blessing of peace and protection for the children of this ravaged country and in all the countries around the world. Bless these children with provision to meet their individual needs. Send down from heaven Your guardian angels to protect each of these innocents from all harm. Send them the Champion of our faith, our Lord Jesus, to show them how to live godly lives that will be a testimony to Your limitless grace, love and mercy and create a lasting example that these children and their children’s children will remember always.

    Lord, be with our men and women in uniform as they go about their daily routines in Iraq and around the globe. Anoint their footsteps, their thoughts and their actions so that they become shining examples of Your Truth and Love to all they encounter. Send Your heavenly hosts to defend them and keep them from all harm. Show our leaders at home and in all the governments involved, how to resolve this conflict in a godly way so our children came come home to their families. I trust and believe You have the perfect answer to all these problems and I ask that You release the blessings to answer our prayers.

    I claim the promise and victory of our LORD Jesus who is our High Priest in heaven before the throne of God, over all that I ask and I pray all these things in HIS precious holy name. YlbiC – Jon Henry

    Amanda Says:

    Father you wanted children to come to you because you love them. I pray that you would be their covering today in this city. Take vengence on those who have harmed these little ones. Surround them with a wall of protection.

    Be the front and rear guard for our soldiers today. Search out those who want to harm them and let their plans be turned toward them and not our soldiers. Be their warrior today, fight for them with angels in the spirit realm.
    Thank you father.

    Blessed be Your name Father. Bless these precious children. Provide them with a special shield branded by Your Holy name. These young ones are watching, feeling, and living this war, the good and the devastation. They will remember everything. They will remember the efforts and kindnesses of our troops. As they grow I pray they take what they saw and learned and use it to strengthen their resolve, embolden them to fight even harder for their future and their country. Let these ones be the generation that manifests Your glory through the peace, the prosperity, the goodness and the promise of this nation. All of this and the prayers on this patrol, I pray in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

    Lord your word proclaims that you will hear the cry of the widow. You are the Father to the fatherless.
    Be with those in Bagdad who have lost father & mother, husband & wife. Protect them & keep them safe. Show yourself to them so they may know & love the heavenly father.

    Lord be with our troops. Guide thier steps, protect them & give them wisdom & disernment. You have planted Your seed in each heart Lord. I ask that you allow your seed to grow in each person. Help them to rely on their Heavenly Father as Jehoshaphat did, as David did, as Moses did.

    Father we proclaim this to be true. Our military personnel will walk in Godly counsel this day.
    Your word also proclaim that we as believers should “Call those things that are not, as though they were””.
    We speak to every spirit that is not Godly, to be gone in Jesus Name. Now “we loose the spirit of Our Lord in Baghdad this day”
    In Jesus Name we proclaim this Boldly!

    Precious Adonai, You are so wonderful and so full of love and compassion for the helpless. I agree with all the beautiful words that have been prayed. Bless and protect Andy W., Brian C., Stepanie L., Scottie and Matt the Marines and all their units. I continue to pray the 91st Psalm over them all and those they are protecting. One day we will hear of all the times You intervened, and saved lives both of the children of Iraq and those who are sacrificing their time, and being away from their own children to help them.
    We love and trust You, Adonai. To You be all glory and praise.
