Prayer For Iraq 1
Be with the leaders of the world and their advisers as they consult at the United Nations. Be with Prime Minister Blair and President Chirac and President Putin and President Jiang Zemin, and with the non-permanent members of the Security Council. Help them to think not only of themselves, and of their own countries and their own national interests, but of the needs of the world. We pray for ourselves as we think and pray and worry. Father, we are so weak. But you are strong, and you can work your will. We pray, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

We pray for peace, for the peace of your kingdom, for the peace which is embraced by righteousness and justice. We pray that your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as is it in heaven.

Prayer For Iraq 3
Make me an instrument of Thy peace; Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is error, the truth; Where there is doubt, the faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; And where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, Grant that I may not so much seek To be consoled, as to console; To be understood, as to understand; To be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; It is in pardoning that we are pardoned; And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Who is the unsearchable abyss of peace, the awesome sea of love, the fountain of blessings and the bestower of affection, who sends peace to those that receive it; Open to us this day the sea of your love and water us with plenteous streams from the riches of your grace and from the most sweet springs of your kindness. Make us children of quietness and heirs of peace, enkindle in us the fire of your love; sow in us your fear; strengthen our weakness by your power; bind us closely to you and to each other in our firm and indissoluble bond of unity.
Prayer For Iraq 5
Lord of hope and compassion,
Friend of Abraham Who called our father in faith to journey to a new future, We remember before you the country of Iraq from which he was summoned. Ancient land of the Middle East, realm of the two rivers, Birthplace of great cities and of civilization. May we who name ourselves children of Abraham, Call to mind all the peoples of the Middle East who honour him as father. Those who guard and celebrate the Torah, Those for whom the Word has walked on earth and lived among us Those who follow their prophet, who listened for the word in the desert And shaped a community after what he heard. Lord of reconciliation, God of the painful sacrifice uniting humankind We long for the day when you will provide for all nations of the earth your blessing of peace. But now when strife and war are at hand, help us to see in each other a family likeness, our inheritance from our one father Abraham. Keep hatred from the threshold of our hearts, and preserve within us a generous spirit which recognizes in both foe and friend a common humanity. This we ask in the name of the one who came to offer us the costly gift of abundant life.

Please have mercy on Iraq and Afghanistan. Touch the hearts of the Iraqi and Afghan people to call upon Your Name and be saved. Give them one heart, and put a new spirit within them. Holy Spirit, fill them and remove their stony hearts, and give them hearts of flesh. Remove the scales from their eyes and lead them into all truth. Rebuild their lands and expose every untruth and wicked intention, within our country, Iraq and Afghanistan. Father, please crush the head of the insurgency. Protect our U.S. soldiers, allies, and the innocent people of Iraq and Afghanistan and return them home safely to their respective families. Father, please give the Iraqi and Afghan governmental leadership wisdom and guidance as they manage the affairs in their countries. Give our President and administration, leaders of the Armed Forces and our allies, increased wisdom, knowledge and discernment. Holy Spirit, help them to make sound decisions. Help us to continue praying for the families whose loved ones are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
