Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Universal Church

Intercession 5.3 | NIV

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(NIV)

In your good pleasure make Zion prosper; build up the walls of Jerusalem. Psalm 51:18(NIV) May there be peace within her walls and security within her citadels. For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, “Peace be within her.” Psalm 122:7-8(NIV)

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(NIV) And that, thus, I may have reason to answer the envoys of the nations, saying, “The LORD has established Zion, and in her his afflicted people will find refuge.” Isaiah 14:32(NIV)

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

Grace to all who love the Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love; Ephesians 6:24(NIV) for you know those who are yours, and give to all who confess the name of the Lord to turn away from wickedness. 2 Timothy 2:19(NIV)

I pray for all who believe in Christ, that all of them may be one; John 17:20-21(NIV) and since there is one body and one Spirit and we have been called to one hope – one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of all, Ephesians 4:4-6(NIV) give to all Christians singleness of heart and action. Jeremiah 32:39(NIV)

Let the message of the Lord in all places spread rapidly and be honored. 2 Thessalonians 3:1(NIV)
