Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Defeat of the Enemies of the Church

Intercession 5.6 | NASB

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

Let all who take their stand and take counsel together against the LORD and against His Anointed, who would tear their fetters apart and cast away their cords from them, devise a vain thing. Let Him who sits in the heavens laugh at them and scoff at them; speak to them in Your anger and terrify them in Your fury. Psalm 2:1-5(NASB) Give them, O LORD, what You will give them; give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts. Hosea 9:14(NASB)

O my God, make them like the whirling dust, like chaff before the wind; Psalm 83:13(NASB) fill their faces with dishonor, that they may seek Your name, O LORD, Psalm 83:16(NASB) and that they may know that You alone, whose name is the LORD, are the Most High over all the earth. Psalm 83:18(NASB)

Put them in fear, O LORD, that the nations may know that they are but men. Psalm 9:20(NASB) And wherein the proud enemies of Your church deal proudly, make it to appear that You are above them. Exodus 18:11(NASB)

May all who hate Zion be put to shame and turned backward; let them be like grass upon the housetops, which withers before it grows up. Psalm 129:5-6(NASB)

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

Make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples, and let all who lift it be severely injured, though all the nations of the earth should be gathered against it; Zechariah 12:3(NASB) so let all Your enemies perish, O LORD, but let those who love You be like the rising of the sun in its might. Judges 5:31(NASB)

Lord, let the man of lawlessness be slain with the breath of Your mouth and brought to an end by the appearance of Your coming: 2 Thessalonians 2:8(NASB) And let those be undeceived who have long been under the power of deluding influences to believe what is false, and let them receive the love of the truth. 2 Thessalonians 2:10-11(NASB)

Let Babylon fall and sink like a millstone into the sea; Revelation 18:21(NASB) and let the kings of the earth who have given their kingdom and honor to the beast, Revelation 17:17(NASB) be wrought upon at length to bring them into the new Jerusalem. Revelation 21:26(NASB)
