Method for Prayer by Matthew Henry
Pray for Jewish Conversions, Churches Threatened by Islam, and Churches on the Mission Field
For the conversion of the Jews.
Let the branches which are broken off not continue in their unbelief, Romans 11:17(ESV) but be grafted in again into their own olive tree. And though a partial hardening has come upon Israel, yet let the fullness of the Gentiles come in, and let all Israel be saved. Romans 11:23-26(ESV)
For all churches that are groaning under the yoke of Islamic tyranny.
Restore to them their liberties as at the first, and their privileges as at the beginning; smelt away their dross, and remove all their alloy, Isaiah 1:25-26(ESV) and restore their fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negeb! Psalm 126:4(ESV)
For the churches on the mission field.
Be the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas; Psalm 65:5(ESV) and let them have the blessing which came upon the head of Joseph and upon the brow of him who was set apart from his brothers, even to the bounties of the everlasting hills. Genesis 49:26(ESV)
Create peace to the far, as well as to the near. Isaiah 57:19(ESV)
And let those that draw from the abundance of the seas and the hidden treasures of the sand, call the people to the mountain, that they may offer right sacrifices. Deuteronomy 33:19(ESV)
