Prayer in These Days of Terrorism

O Lord, our God, in great distress we call upon You

We and our nation have sinned against You, O God.  We have been self-indulgent, seeking material wealth above all else.  We have disobeyed Your commandments and even opened the doors to blasphemy.  And now because of our sins the walls of our nation are down (Isaiah 5:5) and we are experiencing the curse of terrorism, which is threatening to ruin this and other countries.  We call upon You in this time of fear and peril.  Save us from our enemies.  Let our supplications come before You.  Mercifully hear our prayers for the sake of Jesus' outpoured blood. 

We entreat You to prevent the terrorists from gaining control in our country. 

Lord, have mercy, for You alone are our Helper and our Salvation, to whom all power is given in heaven and on earth

Lord Jesus Christ, our mighty Victor, we plead with You to destroy their plans according to the Scripture, `Take counsel together, but it will come to naught.' Frustrate the plans of the terrorists. 

Lord, have mercy, for You alone are our Helper and our Salvation, to whom all power is given in heaven and on earth

We pray that further attempts at hostage-taking and assassination will not succeed. Cover potential targets with Your blood and protect them from all attacks. 

Lord, have mercy, for You alone are our Helper and our Salvation, to whom all power is given in heaven and on earth. 

Frustrate the schemes of the terrorists by creating disunity and confusion among them. 

Lord, have mercy, for You alone are our Helper and our Salvation, to whom all power is given in heaven and on earth.

Graciously avert further assaults.   Let bombs and other explosives be discovered in time and safely defused. 

Lord, have mercy, for You alone are our Helper and our Salvation, to whom all power is given in heaven and on earth

Prevent the theft of weapons, bank robberies, extortion and anything else that would assist or finance acts of violence planned by terrorists. 

Lord, have mercy, for You alone are our Helper and our Salvation, to whom all power is given in heaven and on earth. 

Prevent those bent on doing evil from infiltrating key positions of influence in our nation.  Expose all corruption and confusion that would hinder the rooting out of terrorism.  

Lord, have mercy, for You alone are our Helper and our Salvation, to whom all power is given in heaven and on earth. 

Protect all those involved in the search for terrorists.   Guide them in their decisions. 

Lord, have mercy, for You alone are our Helper and our Salvation, to whom all power is given in heaven and on earth. 

Help judges and all those appointed to uphold justice, so that they will be true to the fundamental principles of law and justice.

Lord, have mercy, for You alone are our Helper and our Salvation, to whom all power is given in heaven and on earth.  

May Your enemies, Lord Jesus, be delivered from the destructive power of Satan and experience Your transforming power. We pray that You would turn many a `Saul' into a `Paul'. 

Lord, have mercy, for You alone are our Helper and our Salvation, to whom all power is given in heaven and on earth

We pray that these critical times will serve to bring about a wholesome shock among Christians and in our nation, rousing us from all apathy and false security. Convict us of our sins, especially our rebelliousness, defiance, bitterness and hatred, by which we have contributed towards the advance of terrorism.  Make us truly repentant, O Lord, so that our prayers will come from the depths of a humbled heart and be effective. 

Grant that Christians everywhere will be moved to pray and that many prayer groups will be formed, so that You can send help and prevent further destruction and chaos. 

Lord, have mercy, for You alone are our Helper and our Salvation, to whom all power is given in heaven and on earth.  Amen.

God is our refuge and strength an ever present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.

Psalm 46:1-2 NIV
