Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Universal Church

Intercession 5.3 | KJV

For the universal church, wherever dispersed, and for all the interests of it.

My heart’s desire and prayer to God for the gospel-Israel is that it may be saved. Romans 10:1(KJV)

Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion; build the walls of Jerusalem. Psalm 51:18(KJV) Peace be within her walls and prosperity within her palaces. For my brethren and companions’ sake, I will now say, Peace be within her. Psalm 122:7-8(KJV)

O that I may see the good of the gospel-Jerusalem all the days of my life and peace upon Israel. Psalm 128:5-6(KJV) And that, thus, I may have reason to answer the messengers of the nations, that the Lord hath founded Zion, and the poor of his people shall trust to that. Isaiah 14:32(KJV)

Save thy people, O Lord, and bless thine heritage; feed them also, and lift them up for ever. Psalm 28:9(KJV) Give strength unto thy people, and bless thy people with peace; Psalm 29:11(KJV) with thy favour do thou compass them as with a shield. Psalm 5:12(KJV)

Grace be with all them that love the Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity; Ephesians 6:24(KJV) for thou knowest them that are thine, and give to all that name the name of Christ to depart from iniquity. 2 Timothy 2:19(KJV)

I pray for all that believe in Christ, that they all may be one; John 17:20-21(KJV) and since there is one body and one Spirit and one hope of our calling, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of all, Ephesians 4:4-6(KJV) give to all Christians to be of one heart and one way. Jeremiah 32:39(KJV)

Let the word of the Lord in all places have a free course, and let it be glorified. 2 Thessalonians 3:1(KJV)
