When a tool that has helped teach Christians to pray with biblical fidelity and spiritual integrity, across a span of three centuries, is being distributed again and in fresh ways, thoughtful believers can only applaud and give thanks to God for the grace that has brought forth this fruit.
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
Whether the reader is looking for a guide to public prayer or an encouragement to private prayer, Henry's work is a key text, drawing the mind again and again to Scripture as it seeks to shape our prayer life by the forms and priorities of God's own revelation of Himself.
Westminster Theological Seminary
Who of us hasn’t had trouble with prayer at some time or another? And here is a God-sent solution: Matthew Henry’s "A Method for Prayer." This book is worth its weight in gold (platinum?). No one utilizing this book can fail to profit from it.
Derek W. H. Thomas
Reformed Theological Seminary
This book is a classic resource for learning how to pray according to biblical priorities, and for being re-inspired to pray with a heart for God’s purposes. The work is timeless because Henry’s words are so resonant with the heavenly themes that enable us to face earthly trials.
Covenant Theological Seminary
"Teach us to pray, Lord." That wise request has been answered through the centuries both through the word of God and through the example of praying saints...Henry’s life and ministry make it clear that he was a man of prayer; and through this website, his example is still helping the church.
First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
Prayer is an amazing privilege, but it’s also a discipline for which we need direction and instruction. Like a trellis, Henry’s "Method for Prayer" helps us to grow up in a Godward direction, not only to think more biblically, but to pray more biblically as well.
Westminster Seminary California
Matthew Henry is a treasured gift to the church who speaks to all generations in all places. To sit at his feet is to be served a rich banquet. To study his “Method for Prayer” is to drink from a deep artesian well. Wise is the one who plunges themselves into this storehouse of truth.
Christ Fellowship Baptist Church, Mobile, Alabama
The great and nearly unique benefit of Henry's "Method for Prayer" is that it flows so directly from the biblical text. His approach enables the believer not only to read the Bible and study the Bible, but also to pray the Bible.
Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
It’s good to see this classic on prayer in an accessible edition. Ligon Duncan has done brilliant work, adapting Matthew Henry for twenty-first century readers without sacrificing any of the depth and devotional value of the original Puritan work.
