Day 23 – Pray for Those in Leadership

So Jesus said to them, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own authority, but speak just as the Father taught me. And he who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him.” – John 8:28-29

And Jesus went with them. When he was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to him, “Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof. Therefore I did not presume to come to you. But say the word, and let my servant be healed. For I too am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me: and I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him, and turning to the crowd that followed him, said, “I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.” And when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the servant well. – Luke 7:6-10

Pray for the structure beneath the leader. It is called an “Islamic State” because it is set up like a state. Below is a description of the leadership. Pray for each part to know the Lord. Pray that they too would have an understanding of the authority of Jesus just as the centurion. May Jesus find faith among them that makes him marvel!

  • Two deputies of Iraq and Syria, formerly Abu Muslim al-Turkmani and Abu Ali al-Anbari, respectively, now dead. Pray that their replacements would come to Christ.
  • 12 governors for each territory. They are responsible for directing the lower councils

Under each deputy are 12 governors for each territory and each run the lower councils

  • The councils: The financial council regulates weapons and oil sales, making sure weapons and money are coming in at a smooth rate. The leadership council drafts laws and policies while the legal council decides on executions and recruitment. The military council is in charge of the defense of the state while the security council is the equivalent of a police force. The intelligence council ensures the military and all leaders get accurate information on the enemies of ISIS and the media council regulates the different forms of media.

“Day 23 – Pray for Those in Leadership”

  1. Dear Lord I bring the two new deputies of ISIS, the twelve Governors, the Financial, Leadership, Legal, Military, Security, Intelligence and Media Councils all before You and I put Your Armour, the Armour of God on each and everyone of them – Your belt of truth and Your helmet of salvation, Your breastplate of righteousness and Your shield of faith, Your sword of the spirit and Your shoes of peace, to protect them from all the attacks of the enemy. I cover them all with the Blood of Jesus to cleanse and purify them from every stain and sin and to protect them from every evil thing that Satan will hurl at them so that they can all be set free from the chains that bind them to this enemy and turn their attention to the only One who can save them – Our Saviour Jesus Christ The Lord. Amen

  2. Lord Jesus,
    Forgive me please for losing heart. I commit myself to prayer for the lost including ISIS. Lord Jesus, please pour out you spirit on all flesh. Draw all men and women and children to you. Cause them to rush to give their hearts and minds and lives to you. Please cause the ISIS levels of leadership to give their hearts to you and be filled with your Holy Spirit. Please cause them to evangelize those under their authority and cause ISIS to turn from Islam and the wickedness they practice, and become followers of Jesus. Please heal and deliver them from the wickedness that causes them to be evil and barbaric.
    I ask it in Jesus’ mighty and holy name, Amen.

  3. Dear Lord I bring before You today every member of the Islamic State and all twelve governors of each territory. I speak the Name of Jesus into the hearts and minds and souls of every single member of the Financial Council, the Leadership Council, the Legal Council, the Military Council, the Security Council, the Intelligence Council and the Media Council. I take captive every thought of theirs and make those thoughts obedient to the Word of God and to the Mind of Christ so that He can and will transform them by the renewing of their minds, establish homeostasis in their lives, bless them with great success as they learn to turn their hands to only that which is wholesome and good, obedient to His Will therefore pleasing in His sight, then may they be prospered in every good way, a way that will Glorify the His Holy Name. Amen

  4. I speak the Name of Jesus into the hearts and minds and souls of every single leader within the ISIS organization and take captive every thought of theirs and make those thoughts obedient to the Word of God and to the Mind of Christ so that He can and will transform them by the renewing of their minds, establish homeostasis in their lives, bless them with great success as they learn to turn their hands to only that which is wholesome and good, obedient to His Will, therefore pleasing in His sight, then may they be prospered in every good way. May we, Christ’s faithful followers prepare the soil in the hearts and minds and spirits of these ISIS leaders by taking Jesus to them in our prayers for them, speaking His Name into their whole beings and leaving Him to make the necessary changes that only He can make from the inside. Then when the seed is sown it will germinate and bear fruit. Then will these leaders turn from their old ways and commit their lives to serving The Lord Jesus Christ, our Saviour. Amen

  5. Father,
    Both of the leaders of ISIS in today’s request have been killed. Father, there are others who have risen to leadership of ISIS and I pray that they would either come to you via powerful dreams and visions, or that You would thwart their evil plans and protect the innocent people they plan to harm.
    I also lift up the recruitment system of this group and ask boldly that You disrupt it so it cannot effectively recruit new fighters.
    I ask boldly for lives to be saved and souls to recognize that Jesus alone is Lord!

  6. Dear Father, thank you for your leadership as King of kings and Lord of lords. Thank you for the new leadership you have put in place here. Thank you for the shift taking place in the heavenlies. Thank you for putting the fear of you in the hearts of isis leaders and all terrorists. Thank you for your strong arm that has already gotten you the victory. Thank you for the millions of muslims you will save from the lies and chains of islam. We give you praise and honor and glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  7. Lord God, You alone can heal, You alone can save. I pray for the leadership of the Islamic State…deputies, governors, councils…tear down the strongholds of lies they have believed. Thwart their plans and purposes, such that they would question the powers and authorities they are listening to. Reveal Yourself to them. May they know the Truth and be set free to follow the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You Lord, for those You will save. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

  8. Father, may Your Spirit infiltrate every area in the ISIS ranks. And if it does not draw them to faith in You, may their language be confused as at Babel so that they cannot conduct their plans.

  9. Dear Father, thank you for the privilege of prayer. Thank you for hearing and answering in your time. No one can thwart your plans and purposes. Thank you for showing yourself strong today in Syria in the midst of that terrible and indescribable horror. Please intervene. Please save all those people groups!–Muslims, Christians, atheists, all the varieties and divisions and permutations of “religious” people, all the nationalities, and particularly your people Israel. It’s a huge prayer, but you said it’s not your will that any should perish. Please let your will be done, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  10. Dear Father, thank you for being outside of time. Thank you that you know the end from the beginning. There seems to be an increasing number of reports about isis growing stronger in spite of their apparent losses. Your Word tells us iniquity will abound in the end times, but you win. I pray that you would cause the knowledge of your Word to increase at a greater rate than the increase of wickedness. Let the knowledge of your truth cover the earth as the waters cover the sea. You are in total control regardless of what isis leaders think or plot. Be glorified today, Lord! We give you praise in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  11. Dear Father, in Psalms 9 through 13 David asks you to defeat the wicked. In Revelation 6:10 your martyrs ask you, “How much longer until you avenge our blood?” It seems like such a valid question. To me, the perfect vengeance would be that you would save every single isis member, starting with their imams and leaders. Prove that you are true and right as you show yourself strong in their midst. But your ways are perfect, and obviously the number of martyrs isn’t complete yet. So in a way, it’s really hard to know how to pray. I ask that your Kingdom would come and your will would be done today–that you would save millions of muslims, protect your people, declare that the number of martyrs is complete–that Jesus would come back. Please show us a sign for good today. Please glorify yourself today. We give you thanks and praise, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  12. Dear Father, thank you for your hand of protection over your people this Independence Day weekend. Thank you for your mercy. Please open the eyes of millions of muslims, particularly those in isis and other terror groups. Bring them to Jesus so this can be Independence Day for them to gain freedom from the slavery of islam. Bring them to total dependence on Jesus. Start with their leaders, please. Come and do awesome things today. We give you thanks and praise today in Jesus’ name. Amen.
