Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Health, Purity, and Holiness of the Church

Intercession 5.5 | NIV

For the amending of everything that is amiss in the church, the reviving of primitive Christianity and the power of godliness, and, to that end, the pouring out of the Spirit.

Lord, let your Spirit be poured out upon your churches from on high, and then the desert shall become a fertile field; Isaiah 32:15(NIV) then judgment will again be founded on righteousness, and all the upright in heart will follow it. Psalm 94:15(NIV)

Let what is unfinished be straightened out, Titus 1:5(NIV) and let every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted be pulled up by the roots. Matthew 15:13(NIV)

Let the Lord whom I seek come to his temple like a refiner’s fire and a launderer’s soap, and let him purify the Levites and all the offspring of Israel, and refine them like gold and silver, that they may bring to the Lord offerings in righteousness, acceptable to the LORD, as in days gone by, as in former years. Malachi 3:2-4(NIV)

Let religion that God the Father accepts as pure and faultless flourish and prevail everywhere: James 1:27(NIV) that kingdom of God among men, which is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. Romans 14:17(NIV) O renew your deeds in my day, in my time make them known; Habakkuk 3:2(NIV) and let these times be times of reformation. Hebrews 9:10(KJV)
