I Prayed have prayed
We pray for wisdom and discernment for our leaders in how to respond to the attacks on our military base in Erbil. “Once more I will shake not only the earth, but heaven as well.” The words “Once more” signify the removal of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that the unshakable may remain. (Hebrews 2:26-27 ). You are building a kingdom that will last forever. Help us to not be afraid during this time of shakings. Help us to cling to You and not to things of this world.

At least 12 ‘Iranian-produced ballistic missiles’ smashed into Erbil early Sunday. There was ‘no victims or casualties’ from the attack, Kurdish health minister said. Missiles hit U.S. Army base and Kurdish news channel office, state news reported. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard took responsibility for the attack. Prayer is needed, especially for U.S. leaders determining foreign policy. Please share how you are praying in the comments.

From Daily Mail. Multiple rockets have smashed into a U.S. Army base and a Kurdish news channel office in Erbil, Northern Iraq.

At least a dozen ‘Iranian-produced ballistic missiles’ hit the city in the early hours of Sunday, Governor Omed Khoshnaw confirmed….

Kurdish and U.S. officials confirmed that there were no casualties in what they’re calling an ‘outrageous attack,’ adding that no group has immediately claimed responsibility for the strike.

U.S. Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie had warned about attacks in the area back in December, when he told The Associated Press that while American forces in Iraq switched to a non-combat role last year, Iran and its proxies ‘still want American troops to leave the country….’

Iraqi Shi’ite Muslim cleric Moqtada al-Sadr said on Twitter: ‘Erbil is under fire… as if Kurds were not Iraqis.’

The attack came during a pause in Vienna over Tehran’s tattered nuclear deal following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine….

U.S. officials blame previous attacks on Iran-aligned Shi’ite Muslim militias which have vowed to fight until the remaining 2,500 U.S. military personnel leave the country.

The U.S. forces are leading an international military coalition whose mandate is to help Iraqi forces fight remnants of the Sunni extremist Islamic State group….

An Israeli air strike in Syria on Monday killed two members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), Iranian state media said this week. The IRGC vowed to retaliate, it said.

Kurdish officials did not immediately say where the missiles struck. A spokesperson for the regional authorities said there were no flight interruptions at Erbil airport.

Residents of Erbil posted videos online showing several large explosions, and some said the blasts shook their homes. Reuters could not independently verify those videos.

Iraq has been rocked by chronic instability since the defeat of the Sunni Islamist group Islamic State in 2017 by a loose coalition of Iraqi, U.S.-led and Iran-backed forces.

Since then, Iran-aligned militias have regularly attacked U.S. military and diplomatic sites in Iraq, U.S. and many Iraqi officials say. Iran denies involvement in those attacks….

How are you praying for our leaders as they decide what to do next?

Father, in the name of Jesus, i ask that you raise up specific intercessors who the Holy Spirit will lead in prayer for these issues. There has been so much instability in the middle east and i pray that you would raise up leaders for these nations who are moral, ethical God fearing people who you can work your perfect will through for world and middle east stability and an outpouring of your Holy Spirit. We thank you and praise you in Jesus name for hearing and answering our prayer.

In your prayer you reference Hebrews 2:26-27. There is no 26-27 in He Rees 2z. It is Hebrews 12:26-27. I pray for your divine hand Father in the midst of this shaking.

Lord, I pray for your supernatural wisdom for those fighting against Russian forces. I pray for strength for Ukraine’s leaders, and protection for all. Thank you for those countries helping Ukraine, especially Poland and Israel with their openness to receive refugees. In Christ’s mighty name I pray, Amen

In agreement with Rev. DePriest.
“HE changes times and seasons; HE sets up kings and deposes them. HE gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.’
Praying, in JESUS name. AMEN

Thank you Rev. sandra DePriest for you prayer and I agree totally. The Lord has a perfect plan in place, may we call upon Him in mercy and seek forgiveness for our wicked ways and truely trust God in this. I believe god is waiting on a people who will call upon Him and trust in His ways and forsake the worldy ways we all have come so used to. war is a terrible thing but when we get so far from God , look what happens. Lord please send Your wise counsel to our leaders and cause them to turn from their wicked ways and listen to You.. Your ways are right and just and You are the only One that can bring justice to this evil onslaught. Forgive us for the killing of innocent lives, abortion shall be a thing of the past. In Jesus Name. Lord turn hearts to want to know what is right and good and not evil. Lord turn hearts to love and forgive, then we will see Your mercy. In the Mighty Name of Jesus. Amen

I’m praying our present administration be unseated before they take us all down. And replaced by true statesmen who are focused on the government for the people, of the people and by the people. And for the people to wake up
and do our part to make America a light for the nations. And the nations to also be as the Lord intends. We need President Trump to lead us Lord. To get our military in righteous order and make good fences around us. Thst will help us to have good neighbors.

Gracious Lord, we call upon you to raise up at least one godly, knowledgeable and wise advisor to Biden, someone you have prepared like Joseph before Pharaoh. Orchestrate the circumstances to get this advisor before Biden and other leaders and may the scales blocking their understanding fall from their eyes and ears so they may hear your counsel and wisdom through your servant. We pray for a special anointing for this wise advisor and supernatural wisdom and discernment on matters of Iraq and the Ukraine and Russia. We thank you Lord for what you are going to do and speak success in Jesus’ Name. Amen
