“Since ancient times no-one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.” (Isaiah 64:4)

Prayer for Islamabad, Capital of Pakistan

“Bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure—you, the righteous God, who probes minds and hearts.” (Psalm 7:9)

“The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.” (Psalm 103:6)

Jesus, we join You in intercession for Islamabad. We pray for all the governmental leaders who reside here that make decisions for Pakistan. We ask for Your wisdom to prevail and we cast down every thought and evil intent that would deceive them into choosing violence and intimidation as a way to govern. May the underpinning and support of militancy be bankrupted, so that men and women of peace could be heard.

We pray that you would raise up leaders who would promote life giving solutions and a peace that is sustainable. May they be given courage and supernatural favor to promote peaceful policies and laws. We ask for divine inspiration in creating programs that would educate and enable constructive conflict resolution within every community.

Lord God, “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you.” (Psalm 89:14) We ask that you would give every citizen a desire for peace and righteousness: to turn their hearts and hope towards the Maker of all the earth. We ask that the message of the Gospel of peace would be heard and received with joy, and that injustice would not be tolerated.

May Your love and faithfulness blossom in the hearts of every minister, mayor and public servant so that the foundation of righteousness and justice can be established in Pakistan. We ask this in the name of Jesus, the One who is faithful and true! Amen.

  1. Lord send Your light to shine in the darkness along with Your truth!
    We proclaim Yeshua is Lord over this this country.
    Encourage and deliver the belivers in the land. Cause them to stand strong and let the light of the Lord within them draw many into the Kingdom.
    We bless this Land in the Name of the Lord.
    amen and amen

  2. Father God as these posted prayers go out, I ask that you would cause them to be alive and empowered by your spirit. May they go forth as weapons of destruction to the Kingdom of Darkness which holds people in captivity. May the prisoners of this darkness go free in Jesus name.

  3. Father God you hold the hearts of men in your hand and you fashion them. You turn them as you turn the mighty water courses of the earth. O Lord turn the hearts of these you estranged children back to the father, that they may live in your peace, your mercy, your grace, your love and, your forgiveness.

  4. Dear Father in Heaven, I also pray for good governance in Islamabad, and all of Pakistan. I believe there are those in govenment there who want to bring about justice, peace and security for citizens of every kind of background, but there seems to also be a strong resistance from one influential sector of Pakistani society. Dear Father, I pray for the security and well-being of all who do not belong to this majority group. We have heard this past weekend of bombings taking place to disrupt the celebrations of a minority Muslim sect. There have also been unjust and unprovoked attacks on Christians in recent times. Then there are the unjust blasphemy laws which have often been used to severely persecute minorities on the flimsiest of evidence, sometimes on account of personal grudge or vendetta. Heavenly Father, the peace-loving members of Pakistan’s government deeply need Your wisdom to know how they can govern and bring an end to these kinds of injustices within the borders of their nation. I pray that they might be able to take effective and successful actions to bring about lasting peace, and that they may be powerfully motivated to do so. In Jesus Holy and True Name. Amen.

  5. Lord we pray for the 14 year old Pakistani school girl Malala who was shot by the Taliban because she was standing up as a voice for the rights of children receiving an education, we ask for a special blessing on her in her recovery and for wisdom as she continues to seek to stand up on this vital issue, in Jesus name, amen.

  6. Father, many times in this prayer prompt, the heart’s of people are mentioned. I ask that You would take out the hearts of stone and give the leaders of Islamabad and every citizen hearts of flesh. Write Your Words on each heart. Make each one pliable in Your hand. Be known and glorified in Pakistan, I ask in the name of Jesus, Whose heart alone is perfect toward You, amen.

  7. Dear Heavenly Father, I agree with this prayer prompt, and I ask You to draw the leaders in Islamabad, and all parts of Pakistan into a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. For You grant honor and favor to those who walk uprightly; and righteousness exalts a nation.
    Your Word says, “Serve the Lord with reverent awe and worshipful fear; rejoice and be in high spirits with trembling [lest you displease Him]. Kiss the Son [pay homage to Him in purity], lest He be angry and you perish in the way, for soon shall His wrath be kindled. O blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him!” Psalm 2:11-12. Lord, we stand in the gap for the leaders of Islamabad that they might not perish in the way, but that they would bow to You and find a place of refuge, asking in the name of Jesus Who shed His blood for them, amen.

  8. As I was praying this morning it came to my mind that this same prayer would fit my country, the US of A, as well as Pakistan so Lord I ask these things for both places. In the name of Jesus – Amen so it will be.

  9. Lord we ask for a turning point for Pakistan as a nation. That universities that focus on intense restrictions & intimidations of the citizens would have a sudden down turn. We are calling on You for angels to inhibit divisive and destructive agendas that release death & fear into the nation. Lord grant Pakistan a turning point in Jesus name, amen.

  10. Lord Jesus, We know that your arm is not too short, that you can pierce even the darkest of hearts. So we ask that your light shine brightly in the dark places throughout Pakistan. For there are multitudes in the valley of decision, we ask that you bring them to the high place of the knowledge of who You are. For there is no God like You who so loved the world that He gave all, that none should perish.
    We ask that you raise up leaders in Pakistan to rule with Godly wisdom, who are not afraid to confront evil no matter the cost. Who are willing to raise the standard of tolerance and reach out to the poor and needy people of their land. Nothing is too hard for you, so we ask in your precious holy name for the souls of men and the glory of God.
    Thank you Lord Jesus.
