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! We lift up the homeless, the fatherless and motherless child to you. I know that you are the Guardian to each one of them. Father thank You for placing a hedge of protection around these little children.
    We realize the enemy’s desire is to attack the seed of the loins; but in the name of Jesus Christ we rebuke those plans; any attack of the enemy is null and void in Jesus name.
    We claim that that the seeds of righteousness are planted in the spirits of the children in Baghdad, and it provinces.
    I thank you Lord for raising up a new and Holy generation of children in Iraq that will be able to speak your name without fear, and without threats.
    In Jesus name,

    Lord: Also, abundantly Bless & safely keep and bring home all troops from every Country, that are fighting in this Mess. Keep each of them safe as you possibly can Lord Jesus. 1st Corinthians 1:17-21 (PAUL) For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. 18) For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19) For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20) Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? Lord, I pray you do Bless all the young, and Brave that fight there, IN JESUS NAME AMEN……..

    Lord of all, Great God. Thank you for your grace and peace and lovingkindness.

    Please pour out blessings of peace and divine protection for our brothers and sisters in Christ living in Baghdad. Keep them from harm today and every day. Let the snares that evil ones lay out backfire on them. Bring the Peace that passes all understand to bear up their spirits. In Jesus’ holy name, amen!

    Dear Father in Heaven, I agree in prayer for the safety of Baghdad’s children today. Father, please protect their lives and their limbs, but also protect their eyes from seeing things that would injure their minds and their hearts from knowning the loss of those who love them and are dear to them. I pray again for Your will to be done in Baghdad, for many to turn from darkness to light. I thank you for the good report I read in Assist News yesterday of Muslims wanting their Christian neighbours to return and being willing to stand with them in defiance of the radicals and terrorists, but I am concerned again with news from another source of Christians suffering in great distress. Father I pray that throughout Iraq evil will be defeated and that peace might return. Please let any who are suffering, especially among the fellowship of believers, be strengthened and encouraged in You, and may help come to them in tangible ways as well. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    Bless the little children in Haifa O Sweet Lord. You once was a little boy, and remember the dusty streets and the hostile attitude of the Roman soldiers and other peaceless people. Cover the people of Haifa with your Love and Mercy, remembering their fear and insecurity. Please cover our beloved troops with Your infinite Love and Mercy, in order to help them be effective representatives of our great nation. Help the troops to bring the very best we have to the poor wartorn regions of Iraq. May all our troops be safe and come home with the knowledge they have been honorable soldiers of Your Goodness.

    My heavenly Father, I come before you with a humble heart and sincerity of my love for you and your Word. Father, may all these prayer for today go before you as sweet smelling perfume and touch your compassionate heart. Lord may the children in Baghdad Iraq, Afghanistan, and through out the Middle East feel your presence surrounding them. I pray that your protective hedge will always be over them and that no harm will come near them in accordance to the prayer of David in Psalm 91.

    Father, in the power of the NAME OF JESUS I SPEAK FORTH that this will be the DAY OF THE CHILDREN. All children in the WHOLE Middle East will be surrounding by your love and that you will BREAK DOWN THE WALLS THAT SEPERATES THEM FROM YOU. You heavenly Father will become their loving Father and guide them to their destiny in the Kingdom. Open their ears and eyes Lord to see your glory, see you in dreams and visions. BRING THEM INTO THE KINGDOM FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS! Let their innocence and faith lead the enemy, leaders, and parents to you and your Son Jesus Christ. Give these children the BOLDNESS AND FAITH like you gave to Paul, Peter, and John and use them mightly for your glory. In Jesus’ name I pray and say thank you Lord for lisening and helpping me to pray today. Amen

    Heavenly Father I pray for our troops in Iraq, especially the Baghdad area. I pray for their protection as they try to help the Iraqi people and especially the children know that we do not bring evil but are trying to aid them in a better and safer life. I ask for your guidance for them to know what to do and when to do it.

    Janice Says:

    Dear Heavenly Father,

    Jesus said to let the little children come to Him and so we know how much You and Jesus love the children. We bring the children of Baghdad to You in prayer today. Go before each one today making a safe way for them to be about their daily routines. Wrap them in a soft invisible blanket of protection from any harm. Let all words spoken to them this day be words of affirmation and love. Let Your love seep into their young lives through many cracks in the walls that have built up against faith in Jesus in that part of the world. Lord, You know how precious each of those children are to their parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, siblings,cousins and friends. And they are even more precious to You. So I trust You will keep them safe from harm and You will prepare a way for them to receive an excellent education to include spiritual instruction to draw them to Yourself (for what good is head knowledge without heart knowledge of You and Your way of love). Let the education of the children be a direct path to continuing peace in Bagdad and Iraq. Again I pray most diligently on behalf of Your beloved young children in Iraq that You would bless them indeed and give them a secure, peaceful future. Through Jesus, Amen

    Father in Heaven, I come before You this day in behalf of the children in Baghdad. I pray for their safety today and ask You Father to send a hedge of protection down around them and with Your MIGHTY HAND Lord force the enemy away from Your precious little ones. I ask You Dear Lord to wrap these children in Your blanket of love . Let them know Father God that YOU LOVE them and CARE for them. Let them see how good You are so they won’t gorw up in the enemy but to know You and stand strong in their faith for You. Please keeep Your hand over the families that have lost loved ones, give them peace, comfort them and let these parents know that how much You love them. I have lost a child and a grandchild, I know what they are going through. I also know that if You Dear Lord had not come to my rescue I would not have made it through. Help these innocent ones to know Lord that you are there for them let them feel You are ever so near. Show Your FAVOR on them this day Lord and grant them Grace. In Jesus name I ask these things of You….Amen

    Barbara C. Says:

    Father-God, how my heart is WARMED especially as I read ‘like-prayers’ rendered by brothers and sisters in Your Son’s holy name. In this Thanksgiving season, may a blanket of Your precious anointing fall on this faraway land. Let it bless the children in particular as they strive to understand. OH Lord, may the bondages and mindsets imposed upon them be bound up and cast out by the extended hands of love from our countries and others. OH LORD, LOOSE the stranglehold that the enemy has on Baghdad and all of IRAQ, even Afghanistan, and IRAN… to poison the minds of their children against people and peace. Oh LORD, if YOU are not our help, if YOUR strength is not in our arm, we are defeated. PRAISE YOU, GOD, for the LAST CHAPTER which is in our hands for we KNOW that we know, in whose hands lie the ultimate victory. LET PEACE BEGIN ON EARTH and LET IT BEGIN IS US! May it enfold every breathing individual in this sphere we call “earth-world.” In JESUS’ name, I boldly and earnestly plead for mercy and grace that Your BODY may ENDURE to the salvation of the end! AMEN.

    Beverly Says:

    Dear Father, Protect the little children from the evil about Haifa. Your word says to suffer not the little children to come unto you. Let the hearts of the evil be softened when dealing with the little children in Iraq. Protect our soldiers as they protect the children

    Sharon Says:

    Dearest God and Father, you are our very present help in times of trouble. Blessed are you in all the earth. I pray today for the children of Iraq and Baghdad who have suffered so much. Place a barrier over the mouths of those who would teach these children to war and kill. Please let the children experience Christmas this year. Let them receive gifts in the name of Christ so they will know your love and that you exist and want to live in their hearts. We know Lord if you speak the Word it will be done. I ask this in the name of Jesus.

    Oh Lord God , how wonderful you are. You are my rock, my shield and my protector. You are with me day and night. Please place your mighty hand upon the nation of Iraq and give the leaders wisdom as to how to end this horrible war. Give the Dr’s and all medical personnel the ability to work with the many patients and comfort them. Keep all the guns from firing, make the bombs not detinate and end this war. Comfort the grieving. Help the children, widows and elderly to have food , shelter and clothes to wear. May many come to know you today. Work in many hearts . Help the Chaplains to have opportunities to share your word and give them protection from the enemy. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen

    Almighty Father,
    We thank you and praise you that this day Your power and might will be known in Baghdad. We ask that You will use the strength of relationships to confound the schemes of those who oppose you.
    For your children in Baghdad and in Iraq, whether native or those of our loved ones who are there to help bring peace, we pray that Your perfect way will lead them through these hard days, and that they will be encouraged as You show them how important they are to You.
    We ask that the scales be removed from the eyes of the oppressors, and that they too, will come to know You as their personal Savior.
    In Jesus’ most Holy and wonderful Name, Amen.
