Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for your Judges and Judicial Rulers

Intercession 5.16 | KJV

For the magistrates, the judges, and justices of peace in the several counties and corporations.

Make those that rule over my nation just, ruling in the fear of God; 2 Samuel 23:3(KJV) and let those that judge remember that they judge not for man, but for the Lord, who is with them in the judgment, that therefore the fear of the Lord may be upon them. 2 Chronicles 19:6-7(KJV)

Make them able men and men of truth, fearing God and hating covetousness, Exodus 18:21(KJV) that judgment may run down like a river and righteousness as a mighty stream. Amos 5:24(KJV)

Enable my nation’s magistrates to defend the poor and fatherless, to do justice for the afflicted and needy, to deliver the poor and needy, and to rid them out of the hand of the wicked; Psalm 82:3-4(KJV) and let rulers never be a terror to good works, but to the evil. Romans 13:4(KJV)
