Prayer for ISIS

Sunday Night, I watched a disturbing report on 60 Minutes regarding ISIS.

This morning, I was wondering how to pray about them, and this is what came to me.  It is a similar situation that faced ancient Israel, and here is the prayer, that we can also pray in response to ISIS.

Isaiah 37: 15And Hezekiah prayed to the Lord: 16Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim, you alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. 17Give ear, Lord, and hear; open your eyes, Lord, and see; listen to all the words Sennacherib has sent to ridicule the living God.

18“It is true, Lord, that the Assyrian kings have laid waste all these peoples and their lands. 19They have thrown their gods into the fire and destroyed them, for they were not gods but only wood and stone, fashioned by human hands. 20Now, Lord our God, deliver us from his hand, so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you, Lord, are the only God.

Father in Heaven, deliver us from ISIS hands and threats, so that all the kingdoms of this earth may know that you, Lord are the only God.

In Jesus name, amen.
