Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for your Head of State

Intercession 5.13 | NASB

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

For my nation’s Head of State, that God will protect his person, preserve his health, and continue his life and government long a public blessing.

Give our ruler Your judgments, O God, and Your righteousness, Psalm 72:1(NASB) that he may vindicate the afflicted of the people, save the children of the needy, and crush the oppressor. Psalm 72:4(NASB)

Let his rule be established with righteousness, Proverbs 25:5(NASB) and upheld with mercy. Proverbs 20:28(KJV) Give him long life and length of days forever and ever; and let his glory be great through Your salvation. Make him joyful with gladness in Your presence: through the lovingkindess of the Most High let him not be shaken. Psalm 21:4-7(NASB)

Clothe his enemies with shame, but let him shine; Psalm 132:18(NASB) and continue him long, very long, as a guardian to Your Israel. Isaiah 49:23(NASB)
