Prayer of Blessing for Delhi, India (The National Capital Territory)

Jesus went through all the towns and villages,
teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming
the good news of the kingdom and healing
every disease and sickness.
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them,
because they were harassed and helpless,
like sheep without a shepherd.
-Matthew 9:35-26

Great Shepherd, we lift up this region of India that has been the crossroads of cultures, kingdoms and religions for many centuries. Through the hustle and bustle of myriads of people, You know the name of each person and You love them. Jesus, we know that the blood You shed is also for this place too, so we ask now for a divine visitation in every Hindu temple, every Sikh shrine, every mosque and every church. We pray that wisdom, integrity and righteousness would envelope every governmental leader and decision-maker, so that they could make decisions that would benefit the entire country.

As a seat of governmental power, we ask that Delhi’s leaders will:

  • Be drawn into a saving encounter with Christ; and if born-again, that they be strengthened and encouraged in their faith. (1 Timothy 2:4, Ephesians 1:17-23)
  • Be God-fearing and recognize that they are accountable to Almighty God (Hebrews 9:27)
  • Desire humility and be willing to serve and cooperate. (Luke 22:27, 1 Peter 5:5)
  • Be generous and have compassionate hearts for the poor and needy (Luke 10:33-37, Psalm 41:1)
  • Have courage to resist manipulation, pressure, and the fear of man. (Proverbs 29:25, 2 Timothy 1:7)

Raise up Your followers to demonstrate the power of the One true God. As Your word is spoken or read, may it divide soul and spirit.  May the Gospel be proclaimed without hindrance, and confirmed through healings and miracles to show that You are a living God who cares for those who suffer. Father of Lights, we ask that You would pour out a “spirit of adoption,” so that Jesus can gather the sons and daughters of India into His arms and bring them into Your eternal Kingdom.

There are many different gods worshiped in this place that have held the people in fear.  In the name of Jesus, we dismantle everything that sets itself up against the knowledge of Christ. May Your love bring enlightenment and freedom to all who have been harassed by demonic spirits and dead rituals.

Because You are good, Lord God, we declare that Delhi will resonate with Your glory and that Your blessings will overflow from here to all of India. Jesus, be honored in Delhi!  Amen.

  1. Dear Jesus.
    You came to set the captive free. Thank you for setting me free. I ask for Your help to continue to set free the captives of all these different false religions so they can worship You and have eternal life, in Jesus name, amen.

  2. Beloved Lord, Your Word tells us that perfect love casts out fear (1 John 4:18). I pray that Your people will stop being afraid of the evil. Help us remember Who is Lord, and stop serving the wicked one through fear. May Your people have the wisdom to “turn on the light” rather than fearing the darkness. Lord, You have invited us simply to ask of You, and we will receive from You. Please guide Your people to ask for Your light to shine in the darkened places of this world, and for Your great love to perfectly cast out all that causes fear, terror and torments. Help us remember Whose we are, Dear Lord, and give You the glory and honor, and room to work Your perfect will in every situation. In Jesus Powerful Saving Name. Amen.

  3. Father, I call for a witness of the Blood of Jesus, His finished work on the cross, and His Word, ‘Father forgive them; they know not what they do.” May the Holy Spirit visit every nook and cranny of Delhi and call forth those who are worthy to come into Your Kingdom. I ask this in the name of Your Son, Jesus, the Lord our Savior, amen.

  4. Gracious Lord Jesus, I praise You that Your eyes are on Delhi and its surrounding areas just as Your eyes are on us. It is comforting to know that You see the needs of Delhi’s poor and forgotten ones. I know You care for them. Help us to do whatever we can to advance Your Gospel to those who need it most, Dear Lord. Please send out Your Word to the needy ones of Delhi, with saving power. May lives be transformed, quite literally. May lives be saved, physically, emotionally and spiritually!

    Dear Lord, today I also want to thank You for the washing of the water of Your Word this morning. I felt washed after reading, and refreshed. May Your people know that it is a blessing and a joy to spend time with You and in Your Word in the morning. I was especially touched by Phil. 2:7-8 and the sudden realization of how the terrible separation between our sins and Your purity was forever removed when You took on flesh like us. You came to us, Dear Lord Jesus, and did not shrink back from getting right down into the mire to share life with us. You became one with us, not even pulling back from death, the horrible consequence of sin, so closely did You consent to being with us and letting us come near to You. Thank You so very much! May Your goodness and love be remembered and celebrated around the world this season as we consider Your ways and all You have done for us. May lives be transformed, Dear Lord Jesus. In Your Sweet Redeeming Name. Amen.

  5. Lord, for the millions of street children in Delhi we ask for homes, clothing, food and water. We ask You to raise up and call forth those who will minister to the orphans, the least of these among us. May the child in the photo and everyone she represents come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ Who said, “Allow the little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not; for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven”, amen.

  6. Lord, you know the names of all the people who live in Delhi, and you love each one of them. You also know and love each and every leader. I pray that You would inspire them to learn more about You, so that through the leaders, You may truly all the people by attending to the needs of the poor and all in need of help. Lord, make this Your city. Thank you for all the devout shepherds of sheep. In Jesus name, Amen.

  7. Father in heaven, we come boldly to thy throne and ask that you would grant the above petition. We ask that greater things be done in this city of Delhi. May the Name of Jesus be exalted and glorified. Not unto us, Lord, not unto us, But to Your name give glory,Because of Your mercy, and because of Your truth. Father we pray for multitudes to hear the Gospel and receive Jesus. Thank You Lord, In Jesus’ name we pray Amen.
