Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Intercession 5.2 | NIV

For the conversion of the Jews.

Let the branches which have been broken off not persist in unbelief, Romans 11:17(NIV) but be grafted in again into their own olive tree! And though Israel has experienced a hardening in part, yet let the full number of the Gentiles come in, and let all Israel be saved. Romans 11:23-26(NIV)

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

For all churches that are groaning under the yoke of Islamic tyranny.

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

Restore to them their liberties as in days of old and their privileges as at the beginning; thoroughly purge away their dross, and remove all their impurities, Isaiah 1:25-26(NIV) and restore their fortunes, like streams in the Negev. Psalm 126:4(NIV)

For the churches on the mission field.

Be the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas; Psalm 65:5(NIV) and let your people have the blessing which came on the head of Joseph and on the brow of the one separated from his brothers, even to the bounty of the age-old hills. Genesis 49:26(NIV)

Create peace to those far and near. Isaiah 57:19(NIV)

And let those who feast on the abundance of the seas and on treasures hidden in the sand, summon peoples to the mountain, that they may offer sacrifices of righteousness. Deuteronomy 33:19(NIV)
