Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Safe and Righteous Continuation of your Civil Government

Intercession 5.14 | NIV

For the safe and righteous continuation of my nation’s civil government, that a blessing may attend it, that peace and truth may be established in our days and secured to posterity, and that the hopes of our adversaries and all their aiders and abettors may be extinguished.

Lord, preserve to us the lamp which you have set up for your Anointed One, Psalm 132:17(NIV) so the next generation would know you, even the children yet to be born, that they would put their trust in God and keep his commands. Psalm 78:6-7(NIV)

Let the gospel-believing church abide before God forever: O appoint love and faithfulness to protect it, then will we ever sing praise to your name. Psalm 61:7-8(NIV) Thus, let the Lord save Zion and rebuild the cities of Judah, and the children of your servants will inherit it, and those who love your name will dwell there. Psalm 69:35-36(NIV)

Let the design of those who would choose a leader to go back to Egypt, Numbers 14:4(NIV) be again defeated; and let not the fatal wound that has been given to the beast be healed anymore. Revelation 13:11-12(NIV)

Let our eyes see Jerusalem, the city of our festivals, a peaceful abode, a tent that will not be moved: Let none of its stakes be pulled up, nor any of its ropes broken. Let the LORD be our Mighty One and be to us like a place of broad rivers and streams; for the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; it is he who will save us. Isaiah 33:20-22(NIV)
