Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Healing of your Nation’s Unhappy Divisions and Success Against your Nation’s Enemies

Intercession 5.12 | NASB

For the healing of my nation’s unhappy divisions and the making up of its breaches.

For the divisions that are among us, there are great searchings of heart; Judges 5:16(NASB) for there are three against two and two against three in a household. Luke 12:52(NASB) But is the breach as vast as the sea, which cannot be healed? Lamentations 2:13(NASB) Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then has not the health of the daughter of our people been restored? Jeremiah 8:22(NASB) Lord, heal the breaches of our land, for because of them it totters. Psalm 60:2(NASB)

I beg in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ that there may be no divisions among us, but that we may be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment. 1 Corinthians 1:10(NASB)

Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant us to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, so that with one accord we may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Romans 15:5-6(NASB) and promote the common salvation. Jude 1:3(NASB)

Lord, keep us from judging one another and regarding one another with contempt, Romans 14:10(NASB) and give us to pursue the things which make for peace and the building up of one another; Romans 14:19(NASB) that living in love and peace, the God of love and peace may be with us. 2 Corinthians 13:11(NASB)

Let nothing be done from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let me regard others as more important than myself; Philippians 2:3(NASB) and grant that my gentle spirit may be known to all men, because the Lord is near. Philippians 4:5(NASB)

For victory and success against my nations’ enemies abroad who seek its ruin.

Rise up, O LORD! And let Your enemies be scattered, and let those who hate You flee before You, but return, O LORD, to the myriad thousands of Your Israel. Numbers 10:35-36(NASB)

Give us help against the adversary, for deliverance by man is in vain. Through God let our forces do valiantly; yes, let God Himself tread down our adversaries, Psalm 60:11-12(NASB) and make them like dust with Your sword and as the wind-driven chaff with Your bow. Isaiah 41:2(NASB)

Let us be a people saved by the LORD, as the shield of our help and the sword of our majesty; Deuteronomy 33:29(NASB) and make our enemies sensible that the LORD fights for us against them. Exodus 14:25(NASB)

Those who risk their lives for us on the high places of the field, Judges 5:18(NASB) train their hands for war, and their fingers for battle; Psalm 144:1(NASB) give them the shield of Your salvation, and let Your right hand uphold them, Psalm 18:35(NASB) and cover their heads in the day of battle. Psalm 140:7(NASB)
