Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for your Head of State

Intercession 5.13 | NIV

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.

Endow our ruler with your justice, O God, and your righteousness, Psalm 72:1(NIV) that he may defend the afflicted among the people, save the children of the needy, and crush the oppressor. Psalm 72:4(NIV)

Let his rule be established through righteousness, Proverbs 25:5(NIV) and made secure through love. Proverbs 20:28(NIV) Give him long life and length of days, forever and ever; and through the victories you give, may his glory be great. Make him glad with the joy of your presence: through the unfailing love of the Most High let him not be shaken. Psalm 21:4-7(NIV)

Clothe his enemies with shame, but let him be resplendent; Psalm 132:18(NIV) and continue him long, very long, a foster father to your Israel. Isaiah 49:23(NIV)
