Method for Prayer by Matthew Henry
For the magistrates, the judges, and justices of peace in the several counties and corporations.
Make those who rule over us just, ruling in the fear of God; 2 Samuel 23:3(ESV) and let those who judge remember that they judge not for man but for the LORD, who is with them in giving judgment, that therefore the fear of the LORD may be upon them. 2 Chronicles 19:6-7(ESV)
Enable our magistrates to defend the weak and fatherless, to maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute, to rescue the weak and the needy, and to deliver them from the hand of the wicked; Psalm 82:3-4(ESV) and let governors never be a terror to good works, but to the evil. Romans 13:4(ESV)
