Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Give Glory to God as the Creator of the World

Adoration 1.10 | NASB

I must give glory to Him as the Creator of the world and the great Protector, Benefactor, and Ruler of the whole creation.

Worthy are You, my Lord and my God, to receive blessing and honor and glory and power; for You have created all things, and because of Your will and for Your praise they exist and have been created. Revelation 4:11(NASB)

I worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters; Revelation 14:7(NASB) who spoke, and it was done; who commanded, and it stood fast; Psalm 33:9(NASB) who said, “Let there be light,” and there was light; Genesis 1:3(NASB) “Let there be a firmament,” and he made the firmament; Genesis 1:6-7(NASB) and he made all very good; Genesis 1:31(NASB) and they stand this day according to his ordinances, for all things are his servants. Psalm 119:91(NASB)

Yours is the day, Yours also is the night; You have prepared the light and the sun. You have established all the boundaries of the earth; You have made summer and winter. Psalm 74:16-17(NASB)

You uphold all things by the word of Your power, Hebrews 1:3(NASB) and in You all things hold together. Colossians 1:17(NASB)

The earth is full of Your possessions, as is the great and broad sea. Psalm 104:24-25(NASB) The eyes of all look to You, and You give them their food in due time: You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing. Psalm 145:15-16(NASB) You preserve man and beast, Psalm 36:6(NASB) and give food to all flesh. Psalm 136:25(NASB)

You alone are the LORD; You have made the heavens, the heaven of heavens with all their host; the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them; You give life to all of them; and the heavenly host bows down before You, Nehemiah 9:6(NASB) whose sovereignty rules over all. Psalm 103:19(NASB)

A sparrow does not fall to the ground apart from You. Matthew 10:29(NASB)

You made man at first of dust from the ground and breathed into him the breath of life, and so he became a living being. Genesis 2:7(NASB)

And You have made from that one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation. Acts 17:26(NASB)

You are the Most High, who rules over the realm of mankind and bestows it on whomever You wish; Daniel 4:25(NASB) for from You comes justice for man. Proverbs 29:26(NASB)

Hallelujah! The Lord my God, the Almighty, reigns! Revelation 19:6(NASB) He does all according to the counsel of His will, to the praise of His own glory. Ephesians 1:11-12(NASB)
