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 God: I ask that You will be with the innocent children of Bagdhad. They don’t know why their city is in turmoil and that they have lost loved ones. I just ask that You will send angels to watch over them. Help them to have food, water, clothing, and shelter and loving arms to hold them when they cry. I ask all of these things in Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen

    Abba, God, holy and righteous Father, how it must grieve You to see the innocent harmed, maimed and killed. Life is precious to You yet there are those who do not know the value of every single life. Holy One, even more precious is a child, those who do not know evil until it is introduced to them. Father, we cry out for the children of Baghdad and of all the Middle East beseeching You for their protection as we prophetically cover them with the blood of the Lamb, in Jesus’ name. May today begin a new day where eyes are opened and ears to hear what You are saying the world over. The ground cries out because of the innocent blood that has been shed upon it. Let all mankind not be dull to the sound but may we harken to the sound in Baghdad, in the Middle East and the world over. Even Your tears are felt, Your cries heard in mourning over these little ones who are so grievously abused and counted only of value for man’s goals. Forgive us all for forgetting how priceless these little ones are before You. May we continue to lift them in prayer, asking for Your protection upon them, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

    The children – the widowed and the orphan. What an opportunity to pray and the result is to become so much closer to the Lord. Ensure our own hearts are so soft that we can truly raise up our responsible prayers for the mothers or fathers and their children in war torn areas of the world.

    Yes, Lord, do not let anyone bring a child to harm be it emotionally, spiritually or physically. Thank you so much Jesus, our brother.

    Heavenly Father, I stand along with all the others in prayer for the children in Baghdad. God we are pleading and pouring our hearts out to you for their safety and for healing on their land. So many things Lord have gotten so far away from all that you stand for, not only in other countries but in our own country as well. Same sex marriages,Hate Crime bills being PSAAED and the little ones ars in fear for their lives when they should be playing.Parents can’t rest because they are living in fear of their childrens lives and their own. Father God this isn’t the way it should be. I know Your Word doesn’t promise us we will never be in rough situations, but Your Word does say to bring our burdens to You and leave them there. Well Lord that is exactly what we are doing. Many of us all over the world is heavy burdened about the children in Baghdad and Iraq. So we lift them up to You Dear Lord and trusting in You to protect them. Please Lord find favor in Your CHILDREN and snatch them from the hands of the enemy so they can grow up to know You and sing praises to You Lord for being their God. In Jesus Name…..Amen

    Dear Father in Heaven, the children are the humble ones whom You regard. So often in our self-interest and self-importance we have forgotten their needs, but You have not forgotten. I pray for the children of Baghdad today. I pray for the troops and peace keepers to have a tender regard for these little ones and to be mindful of them at all times. For their sakes may there be healing in that city and in that land, so that they might grow up free from tension, turmoil and strife. Father, I pray also for the children in my own sphere of influence. You know of the song I heard today by a group popular with young teen boys and how hurt and broken were its lyrics. I don’t know what troubles could have caused a young lad to write words so full of pain, but You do. Give us all ears to hear the cries of the children in our midst and in our world, and hearts of compassion to reach out to them in their need. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    Oh Father God, My Lord…can this be stopped? I’m praying with a Sherril,I cannot believe thay we are encouraging Israel to give a portion Jerusalem away. It’s against your word! I’ve read it, I believe it, how can the US be in the middle of this. Lord our President says he reads His Bible, and prays. Lord speak to Him in the night. Speak to C. Rice in the night too, give them dreams & visions of YOUR will. Let this not be.

    My Heart cries over the children of Bagdad, Jesus you Love the children, You said “suffer not the little ones to come….Mt.19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto Me: for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.” In Jesus Name I call forth many children to come unto the Love, care, Knowledge of Jesus Chirst OUR Savior. Amen

We pray for the children in Bagdhad and Iraq, we pray for their safety Father – Outstretch Your mighty Hand Father and protect them as well as those who serve You in this place. Send the right people to speak to these children about Your love and care for them, reach them Lord, We pray this in Your Son’s Name

    Oh Father, I come in agreement with all the prayers I read for today. Father how your heart must be sad and crying out for the children in Iraq, Afghanistan, and through our the other parts of the Middle East effected aby this war. Lord God Almighty I ask that you would PROTECT ALL THE CHILDREN. For this is your generation whom you are CALLING AND ANOINTING TO PREACH THE GOSPEL OF LOVE AND MERCY IN YOUR NAME, AND BRINGING GLORY AND HONOR TO YOUR NAME. Use them mightly Lord and prepare them to be our Daniel’s, Paul’s, Esther’s, David’s, Elijah’s and Elisha’s, plus many others you used mightly for the spreading of the Gospel. The children who do not have parents due to this war BE THEIR FATHER, and be THE HUSBAND to the women who lost their husbands.

    Please pour down your LOVE, POWER, AND LIGHT upon the land of Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel, and other parts of the Middle East that they may know of your love. For in your WORD you tell us that darkness and light don’t go together. Let your LIGHT OVERPOWER the darkness, and that the enemy will be seen and caught in their plots. To You Father God “ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE”. Let your will be done on earth as you have it written in heaven. Send your Angels to help us IN FIGHTING AGAINST ALL PRINCIPALITIES in the heavenlies, AND BE VICTORIOUS THROUGH THE NAME OF JESUS, your Beloved Son. I thank you Father for hearing all our prayers. You are our anointed High Priest and I love you. In the name of Jesus our Lord and Savior I ask this now AMEN

    FATHER, I PRAY IN JESUS NAME FOR PROTECTION FOR THE CHILDREN. I ASK YOU TO BRING TO JUSTICE THOSE WHO WOULD USE INNOCENT CHILDREN TO DO THEIR DIRTY WORK. ALL OVER THE MIDDLE EAST IT SEEMS THEY HAVE NO LOVE IN THEIR HEARTS, THAT THEY WOULD PUT WOMEN AND CHILDREN IN HARMS WAY INTENTIONALLY AND USE THEM AS HUMAN SHIELDS. THIS IS THE WORK OF THE DEVIL! I PRAY YOU WOULD HAUNT THEIR SLEEP AND ATTACK THEIR CONSCIENSE FOR ALL THE INNOCENT BLOOD LOST DUE TO THEIR JIHAD. LORD HOW MUCH LONGER BEFORE YOU RETURN? WE ARE AWAITING THAT GLORIOUS DAY WHEN YOU CALL HOME YOUR CHURCH. OH COME QUICKLY LORD JESUS! I THANK YOU AND PRAISE YOUR HOLY NAME. AMEN

    Amanda Says:

    Father I pray this will begin a new life for a generation of children. That they would be taught love and not hate, peace and not turmoil. Bring about heart change in the fathers and mothers so their children can live in a new environment.
    Save one child today so that he can save many.

    I pray for our soldiers to have a warrior’s heart, to not grow weary, but to keep their mission in mind. Bind their hearts to your mission of setting captives free and destroying the chains and prisons that bind them. Honor these young men and women with your shelter and love in Jesus name.

    Julie Dalgarno Says:

    Father, we are so gratefull that YOU are the God of all Grace, love and compassion. Lord Jesus glorify the Father by leading these children to be a new generation to know You, to worship You.
    Only You O Lord are able to do this. Reveal Yourself to these innocent ones. They know only violence, show them Your precious Love. Thank You Lord.

    Father God, Thank You for waking us up another day in our right minds and having the functioning of our body. We give you all the praise and the glory, for you are so Worthy of all of our Praise. Lord, I come to you in the name of Jesus, asking Lord that you cover and keep the children in Iraq, bless the intercessor prayers, our soldiers, and our leaders. We pray this in Jesus Christ’s name.

    RW Says:

    Dear Father please protect the children , the elderly and give peace and comfort to the families that have lost loved ones. We have no idea of the suffering that is going on in Iraq. We see TV but it it is not real. Living in these conditions day after day is just beyond belief. Please end this war and make the evil ones lay down their weapons and stop the bombings etc. Allow many to hear your voice calling them to repentance and opening the door of their hearts to have a relationship with you. Thank you Father . In the name of Jesus we pray. AMEN

    Sherrill Says:

    Dear Father, next month there will be a meeting of leaders – a meeting supposedly to bring peace to a violent area. Father, our leaders are advocating that Israel give away part of Jerusalem. Evidently our leaders don’t read Your Word or they would never ask for such a thing. Your Word is very plain in Zechariah and Ezekial. Father, open their eyes as these things they advocate have dire consequences for our nation and the world. We pray in Jesus’ Name.

    Dear Father God; it is with great honour that I stand before You this day October twentieth declaring that you are my personal Saviour. I am reminded of the song I have heard and sung: “You have done so much for me, I cannot tell it all”
    But I can say that You are a Deliverer in time of trouble. Your word declare it!
    The scripture found in the book of Judges tells repeatdly tells how your children went back into doing evil.And each time they cried out to You, and You heard their cries, and delivered them out of the hands of their enemies.
    Hallelugah to The Most High God! Now God, You are the same today, as You were then. Deliver Lord, our loved ones, and keep them out of the hands of the fowler; this day October twentieth, two-thousand and seven.
    Work Your Miracles, in Jesus Name,
    Amen

    Lord God Almighty,Your word says-(Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.-Luke 18:16.) We ask You Father to protect Your little ones from harm. Our children are a gift and a blessing from You Lord. We pray that You will drive out the evil from their land so they can live in peace and harmony that Your name will be Glorified and PRAISES will go up to you from all Your people in Baghdad, Iraq and other countries and cities where the evil one is killing Your little ones. Please God send down a protective wall around them. Please do not turn a deaf ear to our cries for help for these children. We know we are not alone when obstacles arise. We need only to trust in You,Lord. We all stand together united in our faith and trust in You Father God to keep them safe. (With us is the Lord our God, to help us and to fight our battles- 2nd Chronicles 32:8)I lift these children up to You Lord and ask You to wrap them in Your blanket of LOVE.Please God bring peace to their parents and comfort those who have lost their loved one. You know Lord I have lost a child of my own, my heart aches for these innocent families. PLEASE LORD, PLEASE come to their aid. We know You are in control Lord. Grant them grace this day Lord. In Jesus name I pray.

    Thank you heavenly Father that more and more people are praying and you are answering prayers. Protect the children with your angels and protect all of the innocent citizens who are in danger. Again we ask you to bind the enemy and put a hedge of protection around our troops. Help us not to become weary in our praying but to press on to the goal we are all seeking, and that is for peace to come to Iraq and Afganistan and ALL of the middle east. Work a miracle for these people we pray in your Holy Name. Amen
