Our precious Lord Jesus Christ,thank you for giving your life for our sins and that we would have a way through you for our prayer to get to our Father. God forgive us for our sins.Help us understand that people arent alway nice and dont share our Christian beliefs. Dear Jesus you could have called 10,000 angels but you died for us instead,and I am so greatfull that you did you left behind your words in the bible and Jesus your word says in Mathew 18:19 That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. Lord we all agree that our P.O.W.S need to be watched over,they need to feel your prescence and peace in their hearts and minds. Lord we ask that you call the 10,000 angels to guard them. We pray for the souls of the Iraques that are holding them. Soften their hearts Jesus and I pray that they will just let them go. I know you can do anything you are God. I also pray for the troops in the war and pray for the war to be short. Bless all that are fighting for us. Lord your word also says in John 15:13 Graeater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. So all these men and women do have the greatest love. So God be with them. We agree on this and ask this in your Greatest name Jesus Christ, amen.

Dear Lord
Look with compassion and mercy on the prisoners of war being held in custody by htis demonic enemy. We pray they do not suffer and that you will be their guide and shield through this entire ordeal. They are all so young Lord. They have families that love them and need them back home safe and sound. I pray I would be able to be exchanged for one of them so they could be returned. But Lord all I am able to do is pray for them each day. Be with them precious Jesus and protect them by the power of your Holy Name: Jesus Christ.
