Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Universal Church

Intercession 5.3 | NASB

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 for its salvation. Romans 10:1(NASB)

By Your favor do good to Zion; build the walls of Jerusalem. Psalm 51:18(NASB) May peace be within her walls, and prosperity within her palaces. For the sake of my brothers and my friends, I will now say, “May peace be within her.” Psalm 122:7-8(NASB)

O that I may see the prosperity of the gospel-Jerusalem all the days of my life and peace upon Israel. Psalm 128:5-6(NASB) And that, thus, I may have reason to answer the messengers of the nations, saying, “The LORD has founded Zion, and the afflicted of His people will seek refuge in it.” Isaiah 14:32(NASB)

Save Your people, O Lord, and bless Your inheritance; be their shepherd also, and carry them forever. Psalm 28:9(NASB) Give strength to Your people, and bless Your people with peace; Psalm 29:11(NASB) surround them with favor as with a shield. Psalm 5:12(NASB)

Grace be with all those who love the Lord Jesus Christ with love incorruptible; Ephesians 6:24(NASB) for You know those who are Yours, and give to all who name the name of Christ to abstain from wickedness. 2 Timothy 2:19(NASB)

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

Let the word of the Lord spread rapidly in all places, and let it be glorified. 2 Thessalonians 3:1(NASB)
