Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Intercession 5.15 | NASB

For the advisers, cabinet members, members of Congress or Parliament, the ambassadors and envoys abroad, and all who are employed in the conduct of public affairs.

Counsel my nation’s counselors, and teach its elders wisdom: Psalm 105:22(NASB) O give them a spirit of wisdom and understanding, a spirit of counsel and strength, a spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD, to make them delight in the fear of the LORD. Isaiah 11:2-3(NASB)

O do not deprive the trusted ones of speech nor take away the discernment of the elders, Job 12:20(NASB) nor ever let the things which make for the nation’s peace be hidden from the eyes of those who are instructed with the nation’s counsels. Luke 19:42(NASB)

Make it to appear that You take Your stand in Your own congregation and judge in the midst of the rulers, Psalm 82:1(NASB) and that when the princes of the people assemble themselves as the people of the God of Abraham, the God of Abraham Himself is among them; and let the shields of the earth belong to the Lord, that He may be highly exalted. Psalm 47:9(NASB)

Let there be those from among my nation who rebuild the ancient ruins and raise up the age-old foundations, that they may be called the repairers of the breaches and restorers of the streets in which to dwell. Isaiah 58:12(NASB)
