Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Jewish Conversions, Churches Threatened by Islam, and Churches on the Mission Field

Intercession 5.2 | KJV

For the conversion of the Jews.

Let the branches which are broken off not abide still in unbelief, Romans 11:17(KJV) but be grafted in again into their own olive-tree. And though blindness is in part happened to Israel, yet let the fulness of the Gentiles come in, and let all Israel be saved. Romans 11:23-26(KJV)

Let them be made to look upon him whom they have pierced; Zechariah 12:10(KJV) and, that they turn to the Lord, let the veil which is upon their hearts be taken away. 2 Corinthians 3:15-16(KJV)

For the Eastern churches that are groaning under the yoke of Mahometan* tyranny.

Let the churches of Asia, that were golden candlesticks, Revelation 1:11-12(KJV) which the Lord Jesus delighted to walk in the midst of, be again made so. Revelation 2:1(KJV)

Restore unto them their liberties as at first and their privileges as at the beginning; purely purge away their dross, and take away all their tin, Isaiah 1:25-26(KJV) and turn again their captivity, as streams in the south. Psalm 126:4(KJV)

For the churches in the plantations.

Be thou the confidence of all the ends of the earth and of those that are afar off beyond the sea; Psalm 65:5(KJV) and let them have the blessing which came upon the head of Joseph and upon the crown of the head of him that was separated from his brethren, even to the utmost bound of the everlasting hills. Genesis 49:26(KJV)

Create peace to those that are afar off, as well as to those that are nigh. Isaiah 57:19(KJV)

And let those that suck of the abundance of the seas and of treasures hid in the sand, call the people to the mountain, that they may offer sacrifices of righteousness. Deuteronomy 33:19(KJV)

* Mahometan is an archaic spelling of Mohammedan, or as we commonly say today, Muslim (Moslem). Editor.
