Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for the Defeat of the Enemies of the Church

Intercession 5.6 | NIV

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 gather together against the LORD and against his Anointed One, who would break their chains and throw off their fetters, plot in vain. Let the One enthroned in heaven laugh at them and scoff at them; rebuke them in your anger, and terrify them in your wrath. Psalm 2:1-5(NIV) Give them, O LORD, what you will give them; give them wombs that miscarry and breasts that are dry. Hosea 9:14(NIV)

Make them like tumbleweed, O my God, like chaff before the wind; Psalm 83:13(NIV) cover their faces with shame, so that men will seek your name, O LORD. Psalm 83:16(NIV) Let them know that you, whose name is the LORD – that you alone are the Most High over all the earth. Psalm 83:18(NIV)

Strike them with terror, O LORD; let the nations know they are but men; Psalm 9:20(NIV) and wherein the arrogant enemies treat your church arrogantly, make it to appear that you are above them. Exodus 18:11(NIV)

May all who hate Zion be turned back in shame, and be like grass on the roof, which withers before it can grow. Psalm 129:5-6(NIV)

Let no weapon forged against your church prevail, and let every tongue that accuses it be refuted. Isaiah 54:17(NIV)

Make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations, and let all who try to move it injure themselves, though all the nations of the earth should be gathered against her. Zechariah 12:3(NIV) So may all your enemies perish, O LORD! But may they who love you be like the sun when it rises in its strength. Judges 5:31(NIV)

Lord, let the man of lawlessness be overthrown with the breath of your mouth and destroyed by the splendor of your coming: 2 Thessalonians 2:8(NIV) And let those be undeceived who have been long under powerful delusions to believe the lie, and let them love the truth. 2 Thessalonians 2:10-11(NIV)

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