Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for your Judges and Judicial Rulers

Intercession 5.16 | NASB

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

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

Make them able men and men of truth, men who fear God and hate dishonest gain, Exodus 18:21(NASB) that justice may roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream. Amos 5:24(NASB)

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