Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Continuance of your Nation’s Outward Peace and Tranquility

Intercession 5.10 | NASB

For the continuance of my nation’s outward peace and tranquility, its liberty and plenty, for the prosperity of its trade, and a blessing upon the fruits of the earth.

Let God Himself be a wall of fire around us and the glory in our midst; Zechariah 2:5(NASB) yes, let His gospel be our glory, and upon all that glory let there be a defense; and create upon every dwelling place of Mount Zion and over her assemblies, a cloud by day, even smoke, and the brightness of a flaming fire by night. Isaiah 4:5(NASB)

Peace be within our borders and prosperity within our palaces, Psalm 122:7(NASB) the prosperity both of merchandise and husbandry, that Zebulun may rejoice in his going forth and Issachar in his tents. Deuteronomy 33:18(NASB)

Set up walls and ramparts for us as security; and, to that end, let the gates be opened, that the righteous nation may enter, the one that remains faithful. Isaiah 26:1-2(NASB)

Make peace our administrators and righteousness our overseers; let violence never be heard again in our land, devastation or destruction within our borders, but let our walls be called salvation and our gates praise: Isaiah 60:17-18(NASB) Never let our land be termed “Forsaken” and “Desolate,” but let the Lord delight in us, and let our land be married to him. Isaiah 62:4(NASB)

Let our well-being be like a river and, to that end, our righteousness like the waves of the sea. Isaiah 48:14(NASB) Let that righteousness abound among us which exalts a nation, and deliver us from sin, which is a disgrace to any people. Proverbs 14:34(NASB)

Never make our heavens like bronze and our earth like iron, Deuteronomy 28:23(NASB) nor take back Your grain at harvest time and Your new wine in its season; Hosea 2:9(NASB) but pour down rain for us, the early and latter rains in their seasons, Joel 2:23(NASB) and keep for us the appointed weeks of the harvest, Jeremiah 5:24(NASB) giving us fair weather also in its season. Let our land yield its produce and the trees their fruit, that we may eat our food to the full and live securely in our land. Leviticus 26:4-5(NASB)

Abundantly bless our provision and satisfy our needy with bread, Psalm 132:15(NASB) that those who garner it may eat and praise the LORD. Isaiah 62:9(NASB) Do not blow it away, for then when we look for much, it will come to little; Haggai 1:9(NASB) but bless our blessings, that all nations may call us blessed and a delightful land. Malachi 3:10-12(NASB)
