All Iraqis
All those effected by war.

Whether you are in USA or in Iraq let s come together and pray for all those people who are now in harms way.

Merciful God,
in your gracious presence
we confess our sin and the sin of this world.
Although Christ is among us as our peace,
we are a people divided against ourselves
as we cling to the values of a broken world.
The fears and jealousies we harbor
set neighbor against neighbor
and nation against nation.
We abuse your good gifts of imagination and freedom,
of intellect and reason,
and have turned them into bonds of oppression.
Lord, have mercy upon us;
heal and forgive us.
Set us free to serve you in the world
as agents of your reconciling love in Jesus Christ.

People of Iraq, and all people throughout the Middle East, hear our prayer. We see your strife, and we do not want to leave you with it anymore. I pray that we do not do more harm than good. Truly, may a better life come to you.

I know that there is much pain throughout the Middle East and beyond. Without judgment, we pray for your well-being.

May we all be a people of love, united in a mission for peace, humble servants of the one true God of all.

I pray that there will be an end to this war quickly.
I pray that you will see the through the evil fascade you innocent Iraqi people of a " peaceful " dictator from the religion of peace that pays people to kill the innocent 25,000 US dollars. I pray that you will se and know what he has done to your fellow Iraqi peoples in the North. He used Chemical and Biological weapons on you. I pray that you will see , what he can do to the "Humanity" of the world.
You have children and I cry for you, but so did the peoples of the North, so does the rest of the world.
I honor life as God most High does. I pray for you if I could take you into my home to save you from the self serving dictator I would.'
I pray for you, I cry.

O Lord,
be with the Iraqi people at this hour. Comfort them, and help to ease their pain. Be with those who have lost loved ones, or who are losing loved ones at this hour. Lift them in your arms; send the Holy Spirit to comfort them. Lift their confusion and fear, and grant them Peace.
In your name I pray,

Oh, Lord, to You be the Glory and Honor and Praise. All things are possible with Thee. Thankyou God, for listening to my prayers. Thankyou for listening to the prayers of all the love ones, both US and IRAQ, who had loved ones in Iraq. As they return home to their loved ones, remind them, that it was not President Bush nor the military nor the Demonstrators, that brought them home, but by Your Everlasting Grace and Merciful Love. Oh, Lord, now I pray for Iraq. Let the blood of your Son Jesus over flow the country of Irag and wash away the hate and anger. Let the love of Your Son Jesus touch their hearts, minds, souls, and body and change their hate and anger to forgiveness and love. For their is only one religious and it's Jesus. Let them share Jesus's love to others, so others may come to know of your son Jesus, and serve and Glorify Thee. In Jesus Almighty Name I pray. Amen.

Most Merciful Father and Creator of ALL people:

We pray for the end of the agony in Iraq.

Change the heart of those who would wish to continue strife and harm towards the people in Iraq, whether they be with the Insurgency, al-Qaida, the Armed Forces of the Transitionary Iraqi Government, or the US/Allied Coalition Armed Forces.

Give wisdom to the new leadership of the permanebt Iraqi government yet to be elected, that they may repair fissures in unity, unify the people in democracy and peace, and seek to expel the spirit of hate and cultural bias within their country.

Let those who follow the barbarity of al-Zarqawi and the al-Qaida leadership abandon the cause and leave Iraq in Peace. Let the insurgent end his hate for his Shiite neighbor and go to his own home and family in Peace. Give the Iraqi Government a forgiving hear that they may accept their brother who once raised his hand against the government as the government once raised their hands against the insurgent. And let the American and Coalition troops go home to their own countries and families in peace.

And make the country of Iraq a model of Peace and Stability in the region.

Not as we will it, nor as the people of Iraq will it, but as You will it.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, who died that all people, including the people of Iraq, might live and have everlasting life.
