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 Father, the song today says you are the greatest of all. As we remember that we are wrestling against principalities and other hierarchies of demonic powers, we state the fact that this structure is defeated and its leaders and followers are doomed to the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels. We pray that you will break through the lies which isis leaders and their followers are believing and bring them to Jesus. Let them become servants of the Most High God instead of slaves of demons whose future is a Godless eternity. We pray for your mercy in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  2. Dear Father, thank you for the news report that isis’s funding is beginning to dry up. Thank you for being in control of everything. Please mess up their communications and supplies. Please bring frustration to all the leaders so they fight among themselves about everything. As they seek for solutions to their problems let them come face to face with the truth of Jesus. Give them your eternal perspective so the can see the result of their continued rebellion against you. Thank you for those whom you will save out of islam today, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  3. Dear Father, you have always been protective of your great name. You are the same yesterday, today, and forever. Rise up as you describe in Isaiah 52:10, “The Lord has made bare His holy arm in the eyes of all nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.” Come, Lord Jesus. Please lead thousands of muslims out of their blindness into the glorious light of your truth. Please take the cup of trembling out of the hands of your people. Thank you for those you will save today, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  4. Dear Father, in 2 Chronicles 32 you describe the attack of Sennacherib on Jerusalem, and his taunts and insults against you. Verses 20-22 say Hezekiah and Isaiah cried out to you and you sent an angel “who cut down every mighty man of valor, leader, and captain in the camp of the King of Assyria. So he returned shamefaced to his own land. And when he had gone into the temple of his god, some of his own offspring struck him down with the sword there.” You are the same yesterday, today, and forever. Please do that again, Lord. I pray that you would save these leaders, because that would be a greater defeat for the evil one, but if they will not come to Jesus please bring them down. Bring shame and defeat on them, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  5. Heavenly Father, Lord God Almighty, you alone rule over all. We pray for the leaders of ISIS that they may, almost in spite of themselves, begin to act justly. Speak to those in power, giving them true wisdom, faith in You and justice for all.

  6. Dear Father, your Word says that you were found by those who did not seek you and were made manifest to those who did not ask for you. The members of isis are not seeking or asking for you. Please let them find you. Make yourself known to them. Let Jesus disrupt their plots and plans. No matter what they are doing, please let them encounter Jesus and see their desperate need to surrender to him. Let your Kingdom come and your will be done today. Thank you for your continued protection, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  7. Lord your rule reaches to everyone at every level. Lord act to lead these people into your Kingdom. As they follow you, may they bring those under them with them.

  8. Dear Father, every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. That is absolute fact. We bow and declare that now. The awesome Wisdom of God who has always existed in glory came down to his creation to be born so he could die for the salvation of the world. Open the eyes and hearts of isis and all muslims to see that truth and choose to bow before him willingly before they are compelled to do so when it’s too late to choose. Please save these people, Lord. We give you thanks that as of this moment I don’t know if any terrorist attacks here. That is an answer to prayer and a demonstration of your mercy. Thank you for confounding the plots of the evil one. Thank you for what you will do today to bring truth to isis, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  9. Dear Father, your Word says all humanity is merely grass. All of Isaiah 40 describes your greatness and mankind’s insignificance by comparison to you. And yet you sent Jesus. Thank you that you so love the world! Your love extends to isis and all others who deny the Lordship of Jesus. Please bring the leaders named above to Him, and let them surrender control to Him. Lead them in paths of righteousness for your Name’s sake. Thank you that you will actually change lives today, and that you will bring good out of what the devil intended for evil. Thank you, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  10. Abba Father you gave us One Common Father for Unity and Peace – The story of Abraham is how he fathered both the nation of Israel through Issac and the Arab nation through Ishmael, which all becomes 70 nations. Joseph was a foreshadow of the Messiah. THE CLOAK OF MANY COLORS… representing the covering or Torah-Word-Instruction-Yehoshua of the many nations of different colors of people. This is a family feud and we can inject the energy of peace and love between brothers and send blessings of Light and awareness to all of the descendant’s of Abraham that continue to fight in the Middle East. It is only through tolerance and unity that we can find and create peace in the world. We pray for the world because we are all brothers and sisters. Make us all Holy before Your Eyes, Yehovah, because ha-eh-met, the Truth is “Emet” Aleph (א), Mem (מ), and Tav (ת). The letter Aleph represents the strength and power of the Leader. As followers of Yehoshua (Jesus), He is our Aleph our leader. We pray for our eyes to be open and give us wisdom to become righteous in Your Sight. We pray for Your Kingdom to Come and Your Will be Done in the Mighty Name of Yehoshua. Yehmein

  11. Father, in the Powerful Name of Your Only Son, Jesus, I pray that you would disrupt the structure of the IS and at key levels You would make Yourself know through Jesus. Disrupt the flow of each council and create the confusion as you did at the Towel of Babel. Misunderstanding amongst those who are determined to do evil, but protection on those who turn to You. Confound those around them by the change of heart and the power of their conversion to You. Protect our brothers and sister in Christ who are suffering as winter approaches. Give them strength, comfort and show those of us in the West how to help them.
    In the Powerful Name of Jesus, I pray…

  12. Abba my father I go on my knees and fervently pray for the Islamic state, for their top leaders who are involved in these horrific acts. I pray for nations who are funding these Islamic groups to carry out such merciless acts.
    As your church may we heed to your word to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us. We pray that your church be proactive in praying for the isis who are mercilessly killing our brothers and sisters in Christ.
    Lord we pray for a spritual awakening amongst Isis members especially their top leaders. Saul who was persecuting the church and bent upon arresting and killing the early christians, was dramatically converted on the Damascus road by your supernatural intervention. Lord we pray that the Isis leaders experience a Damascus road experience and reflect god’s unfailing love, mercy and forgiveness. In Jesus name I pray and give you all the glory. Amen

  13. Dear Father, you are ultimate reality and authority. Nothing is hidden from your eyes. No one does anything in secret. Whether flesh and blood or spirit, there’s nothing you don’t ultimately control. Your will WILL be done. Thank you for that, Lord. You are our leader and shepherd. We choose to follow you alone. Please enable the isis leaders named above to choose you. Give them vision and grace to get out of islam and surrender to Jesus. Thank you for those you will save today, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  14. Dear Father, in your Word you often call leaders “shepherds.” And in Zechariah 13:7 you say, “Strike the shepherd and the sheep will be scattered.” I know the true meaning of that verse refers to Jesus, but the principle is applicable to other leaders. So I pray that you will strike the leaders of ISIS and the imams and other leaders of Islam. Bring strong conviction to each one so he will see the lies of Islam and will turn to Jesus. Cause their “sheep” to scatter and give up this terrorism. Attract these poor sheep to your green pastures and still waters. Lord, please confuse all the plans of these leaders. Make their words meaningless, particularly as they try to enlist hapless young people to their cause. Come, Lord Jesus, bring your sheep into your fold. Thank you for what you will do today, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  15. Father, the battle is yours and that we are not wrestling against man in flesh. Send your angels to counter the principalities as revealed to Daniel. Set free from the powers of darkness those in leadership and those they control. May your victory manifest in the physical world as your Spirit convicts the hearts of the leaders. In Jesus’ name.

  16. Dear Father, you told Moses all the earth is yours (Exodus 19:9). In 1 John 5:19, you tell us the whole world lies under the sway of the evil one. It’s your world, Father. You sent Jesus to destroy the works of the evil one, and he said it is finished. I’m sorry I have a problem with time, Lord. I want to see your victory enforced now, in the land of the living. But I know your timing is perfect and you are not slack concerning your promise. Thank you for working at all levels in isis and in all believers of islam. From the one who thinks he’s in control down to the foolish ones planning to join isis, please confound their plots. Break the demonic puppet strings. Set them free in Jesus. Please glorify Jesus today by sending your light into their darkness. We thank you for what you are doing and we give you praise and honor and glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  17. Oh Lord, I ask You to move among the leaders of ISIS. Come to them in dreams and visions. Pour Your Spirit out among them. Turn Sauls into Pauls!

  18. Dear Father, I’m listening to “10,000 Reasons” at the moment, and I’m asking for 10,000 of these terrorists to come to Jesus. It’s not an impossible prayer. It’s according to your will that they should be saved. I ask you for leaders, followers, those who have chosen to join isis, those who have never known anything else but islam–I pray that they will flee islam like forest animals running before a wildfire. Please compel them to see the truth of Jesus. Let them see your truth clearly as you confuse their plans for evil. Thank you for those who will be saved today, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  19. Father,
    As we pray for these men who lead IS at various levels, we beg you for your mercy to break through their hardened hearts. Penetrate the the darkness and shine forth Your radiance to bring them to repentance and true faith in Jesus. While each level forms plans, confound their evil plans and by doing so, open the eyes of those You are calling out of IS to the Power of Your Majesty and the truth of who Jesus really is – their Savior. Amen

  20. Dear Father, this structure doesn’t really surprise us since your Word tells us satan has levels of power and order in his minions. Today we remember that Jesus already crushed satan’s head. We praise you for that complete everlasting total victory. Now we pray that we would see that victory enforced over the leaders in Isis. We ask that you would draw them to
    Jesus. Show them truth and let them turn 180 degrees to the true and living God. And please thwart and confuse and confound their plans for evil just as you brought confusion so many times to the enemies of Israel as we read in your Word. We give you thanks and glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
