Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Defeat of the Enemies of the Church

Intercession 5.6 | KJV

For the breaking of the power of all the enemies of the church and the defeating of all their designs against her.

Let all that set themselves, and take counsel together, against the Lord and against his Anointed, that would break their bands asunder and cast away their cords from them, imagine a vain thing. Let him that sits in heaven laugh at them and have them in derision; speak unto them in thy wrath, and vex them in thy sore displeasure. Psalm 2:1-5(KJV) Give them, O Lord, what thou wilt give them; give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts. Hosea 9:14(KJV)

O my God, make them like a wheel and as stubble before the wind; Psalm 83:13(KJV) fill their faces with shame, that they may seek thy name, O Lord, Psalm 83:16(KJV) and that men may know, thou whose name is JEHOVAH, art the Most High over all the earth. Psalm 83:18(KJV)

Put them in fear, O Lord, that the nations may know themselves to be but men, Psalm 9:20(KJV) and wherein the proud enemies of thy church deal proudly, make it to appear that thou art above them. Exodus 18:11(KJV)

Let them be confounded and turned back that hate Zion, and be as the grass upon the house-tops, which withereth before it groweth up. Psalm 129:5-6(KJV)

Let no weapon formed against thy church prosper, and let every tongue that riseth against it in judgment be condemned. Isaiah 54:17(KJV)

Make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people, and let all that burden themselves with it be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth should be gathered together against it; Zechariah 12:3(KJV) so let all thy enemies perish, O Lord, but let them that love thee be as the sun when he goes forth in his strength. Judges 5:31(KJV)

Lord, let the man of sin be consumed with the Spirit of thy mouth and destroyed with the brightness of thy coming: 2 Thessalonians 2:8(KJV) And let those be undeceived that have been long under the power of strong delusions to believe a lie, and let them receive the truth in the love of it. 2 Thessalonians 2:10-11(KJV)

Let Babylon fall and sink like a millstone into the sea; Revelation 18:21(KJV) and let the kings of the earth that have given their power and honour to the beast, Revelation 17:17(KJV) be wrought upon at length to bring it into the new Jerusalem. Revelation 21:26(KJV)
