Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for your Head of State

Intercession 5.13 | KJV

For all orders and degrees of men, and all I stand in any relation to.

For my nation’s sovereign lord the king, that God will protect his person, preserve his health, and continue his life and government long a public blessing.

Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness, Psalm 72:1(KJV) that he may judge the poor of the people, may save the children of the needy, and may break in pieces the oppressor. Psalm 72:4(KJV)

Let his throne be established with righteousness, Proverbs 25:5(KJV) and upheld with mercy. Proverbs 20:28(KJV) Give him long life and length of days for ever and ever, and let his glory be great in thy salvation; and make him exceeding glad with thy countenance: through the tender mercy of the Most High let him not be moved. Psalm 21:4-7(KJV)

Clothe his enemies with shame, but upon himself let the crown flourish, Psalm 132:18(KJV) and continue him long, very long, a nursing father to thine Israel. Isaiah 49:23(KJV)
