Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for all who are Employed in the Conduct of Public Affairs

Intercession 5.15 | KJV

For the privy-counsellors, the ministers of state, the members of Parliament, the ambassadors and envoys abroad, and all that are employed in the conduct of public affairs.

Counsel my nation’s counsellors, and teach its senators wisdom: Psalm 105:22(KJV) O give them a spirit of wisdom and understanding, a spirit of counsel and might, a spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord, to make them of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord. Isaiah 11:2-3(KJV)

O remove not the speech of the trusty nor take away the understanding of the aged, Job 12:20(KJV) nor ever let the things that belong to the nation’s peace be hid from the eyes of those that are instructed with the nation’s counsels. Luke 19:42(KJV)

Make it to appear that thou standest in the congregation of the mighty and judgest among the gods, Psalm 82:1(KJV) and that when the princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham, the God of Abraham himself is among them; and let the shields of the earth belong unto the Lord, that he may be greatly exalted. Psalm 47:9(KJV)

Let those that be of my nation build the old waste places and raise up the foundations of many generations, that they may be called the repairers of the breaches and restorers of paths to dwell in. Isaiah 58:12(KJV)
