Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Intercession 5.15 | NIV

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(NIV) O give them a spirit of wisdom and of understanding, a spirit of counsel and of power, a spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD, to enable them to delight in the fear of the LORD. Isaiah 11:2-3(NIV)

O do not silence the lips of trusted advisers nor take away the discernment of elders, Job 12:20(NIV) nor ever let what would bring the nation peace be hidden from the eyes of those who are instructed with the nation’s counsels. Luke 19:42(NIV)

Make it to appear that you preside in the great assembly and judge among the “gods,” Psalm 82:1(NIV) and that when the nobles of the nations assemble as the people of the God of Abraham, the God of Abraham himself is among them; and let the kings of the earth belong to the Lord, that he may be greatly exalted. Psalm 47:9(NIV)

Let those who are of my nation build the ancient ruins and raise up the age-old foundations; that they may be called Repairers of the Broken Walls and Restorers of Streets with Dwellings. Isaiah 58:12(NIV)
