How to pray for the War in Iraq

Ask the Lord:
- to dismantle and expose secret, hidden Hezbollah and terrorist cells and networks in Iraq, Baghdad, Iran and Syria.
- to grant strategic and tactical wisdom and discernment to all planning the operations and leading the deployment of U.S. Military Forces on all battle fronts in the Middle East and around the world.
- to bring about a well-accepted program of reconciliation to bring insurgents, militias and the Iraqi government together.
- to bless the Iraqi government with wisdom in planning and developing jobs programs, to get money into people's pockets and give them one more reason not to fight.
- to strengthen security and order around Baghdad and that local government be given more responsibility for taking care of their citizens.
- to prevent Iraq from descending into chaos and becoming a haven for terrorists.
