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.

    Yes, dear LORD and God our Father, i stand in agreement with all of the prayer warriors in asking for Your protection for the children in Baghdad, all of Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel, all over the middle east in the war-torn areas especially where hatred and violence is taught. We come before Your throne, standing in the gap, asking for grace and mercy, that You would spare these children from learning evil ways, and direct their paths along safe walkways and give them teachers who love peace. May they have ears to overhear conversations or songs that speak of You, and make their hearts tender to accept Your Word, Your Spirit, Your Son as their Savior. I also pray for the children of our soldiers who have gone so long without seeing their mothers and/or fathers, that You would comfort them and bring them home to children safely, and in Your time, for our times are in Your hands. Help us to just trust and give our lives to You continually and fully, surrendering all we have to You. In Jesus name i pray these things, Amen and Amen.

    Lord Jesus watch over the innocent children of Iraq and Afganistan. May you deal harshley with anyone who would knowingly do harm to a child. Help our military to be a witness for you as they deal with the citizens of Iraq. May honor and laud come to you through the christians who are working to bring order for these children. Our hearts ache for them and their parents. Stop this horrible war and may the people learn to live together in harmony. We pray this in your name Lord Jesus. Amen

    God in heaven it is not by chance that you have called your people to pray for the hearts and minds of the children of Bagdad. It is and has always been your plan to protect the innocent and helpless in your kingdom. I will pray that all the children will be protected this day forward forever more by your angels in heaven and they will know your love for them. We know you are always in control of every occurrence that has and will happen here on earth and your great desire is to have heaven on earth. I will continue to pray for not only the children in Bagdad but also all the children of the world that you look upon with a love and compassionate heart no other has ever known.

    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. 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). Oh Father I ask now that these poor children caught in the middle of this war be given protection by their angels, and that the ones who harm them will be brought to justice like you tell us in Matthew 18:6 “Those who bring harm to the children, it’s better for him to wear a millstone around his neck.”

    Heavenly Father, let this NEW YEAR of 2008 be one of “New Beginnings” for these little ones. Give them visions and dreams of your love for them, and help them to pursue the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. Use these little ones Lord for your Kingdom mightily with power and authority from above. Sing to them Father the song you said you would sing over your childen. Let them know that they are your “sunshine” also. Shine your LIGHT UPON THEM that the darkness will have to flee. Bring back this land into your OWNERSHIP FATHER, AND BRING HONOR AND GLORY UNTO YOUR NAME. In the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior I pray. Amen

    Lord, I pray again for a spiritual “wet blanket” to descend on Baghdad and put out the fires of sectarian hatred and violence in the city. I pray,God, that your angels would come and protect the children of Baghdad and that they would cover the children’s ears so that messages of hate and strife do not get through.

    Lord I pray for those who teach little children violence. Jesus said, “Whoever causes one of theselittle ones who believe inMe to sin, it would be better for him if a millsonte were hung arond his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” Lord I pray that you would speak to the hearts of these people that teach children violent acts that the HOly Spirit would show them the full impact of what they are doing. Lord I pray for the salvation of their souls, that they would know the truth before it is too late for them and for the children they teach. Lord bring your peace to their hearts and cause them to repent and know the ways of the Lord Jesus.

    Dear Heavenly Father,
    You said, “Let the little children come unto me”.The children are precious to you. They always have been…always will be. You said if someone harms them it is better for a millstone be tied around their neck and for them to be thrown in the sea. Lord I ask for you to come forward on behalf of the innocent little children who are in the midst of this fighting. Put your protecting angels all around them. May they not even be afraid. Let them know of you even at their young age. Let them accept you early and be dedicated always to their Savior. Let them feel your presence with them at all times and feel that peace that passes all understanding. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen and Amen

    Heavenly Father, Creator of Heaven and Earth! You are the Lord of Light and we ask You to come upon Baghdad today, and protect the children there. We ask that you come in a way that is of complete awe to those who don’t know You and that they would seek You. We know that You are the One who gives life. As said in John 1:4-5 “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” Please shine Your light of men throughout all of Baghdad today and please protect all those children. In Jesus’ Name – Amen.

Allow them to be the new generation of hope, a witness of the dark past and of the light of their future through You and Yours.

    Father, We pray protection over the hearts and minds and the physical bodies of the children of Baghdad and all Iraq. We claim the hearts, minds and bodies of the children to be indwelt by the Lord Jesus Christ. We pray angels around each and every one. We don’t allow Physical harm or perverse mindsets to overtake the children of Iraq. We pray for the children to retain their ability to receive truth unhampered or untainted by doctrines of demons. The Kingdom of God is made up of people who are child-like in their attitudes and abilities to receive unperverted truth. We call the childlren of Iraq into the Kingdom of God. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

    Heavenly Father, I know this is Your will and Your heart, that the needy ones and the children be protected from harm. Please give aid to any who are sheltering the small and the weak ones in Baghdad today and keep them all from harm of any sort. I pray that the evil powers that have enticed some to fanatical acts of violence would be driven away and that those who had given themselves to such things would have a complete change of heart and change of mind. From now on, dear Father, I pray that they will cease to harrass or to trouble the needy ones of this world. May they come to their senses and come to repentance. In Jesus’ Precious and Holy Name. Amen.

    Janice from Georgia Says:

    Heavenly Father,

    Through Jesus I pray that the children in Baghdad and Iraq would feel Your presence in their lives in a special way this day. Let them hear a word from You spoken in conversation or sung in a song. Let them become aware that they are not alone in their troubles. Let them know that Jesus loves them. Let His light shine into their lives and take away the darkness that tries to overwhelm them. God You are fully aware of all the forces there which seek to harm them and their families. Please protect them in all their goings and comings throughout the days and in the evenings may Jesus watch over their doors at night as the Good Shepherd guards the gate to the sheepfold. The children in Iraq and Baghdad are living through such dangerous times and have known of death much more than the average child. I pray that You would give them the gift of forgetfulness for all the tragic moments they have experienced so that they can have full enjoyment of peaceful times. Please Lord, act favorably toward the prayers of intercession for the children of Baghdad and Iraq. Amen

    Heavenly Father, it is in humbleness that I come befoe You today, I thank You for all that You do for Your children, yes for those who don’t know You as Lord! I lift up Your name today, Father, and ask You for tender mercies and grace for my prayer petitions.
    Lord just as David prayed in Psalm 140 verses 1-2, and verse 4 declares:
    May these verses be applied to the innocent children in Baghdad, and the rest of the Middle East:
    1. Deliver me, O Lord from the evil man: preservr me from the violent Man;
    2. Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.
    4. Keep me,(children), from the hands of the wicked; preserve me (children),from the violent Man; who have purposed to overthrow my(children) goings.
    In Jesus name,

    Heavenly Father we commit to you your precious ones in Iraq as we meditate upon Psalms 91 your word says that “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. We also commit to you those who are patrolling the city and those who prayer walk around the city claiming this land for you. We agree that your words will smash the strongholds and peace will come over the residents when they look up to you for your protection.
    Deliver this children O God from the hand of the wicked ,from the grasp of evil and cruel men.
    For you our hope o Sovereign Lord, our confidence is in you!
    We proclaim your power over Iraq and you give strength to your people.

    Judith Connell, Greenbank, On., Canada Says:

    Drive back the darkness! Lord, You know that the plight of children has been weighing heavily on me lately. In Canada and the U.S. recently, many children have been murdered in horrific ways and those doing so feel fully vindicated in doing so because they were bothering the murderer or were full of demons or were imminently ready to be born and would cause great humiliation to the father. For the children in war zones, the danger is much more simple – being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Those suicide bombs and IED’s are so indiscriminate.

    I ask that You do Your will concerning all the children in the world after all, no one teaches them to dial 911 when a parent goes berserk or to run when someone suspicious comes nearby. They have no support Lord, except You and the angels You assign to them. The scriptures are full of the knowledge that You value the children of the world. Therefore, Lord, I thank You in advance, for Your intended protection of our children.
