Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Give Honor to the Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

Adoration 1.11 | KJV

We must give honor to the three persons in the Godhead distinctly, to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, that great and sacred Name into which we were baptized and in which we assemble for religious worship, in communion with the universal church.

I pay my homage to three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost; for these three are one. 1 John 5:7(KJV)

I adore thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, Matthew 11:25(KJV) and the eternal Word, who was in the beginning with God and was God, by whom all things were made, and without whom was not any thing made that was made; John 1:1-3(KJV) and who in the fulness of time, Galatians 4:4(KJV) was made flesh and dwelt among us and showed his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14(KJV)

And since it is the will of God that all men should honour the Son, as they honour the Father, John 5:23(KJV) I adore him as the brightness of his Father’s glory and the express image of his person; Hebrews 1:3(KJV) herein joining with the angels of God, who were all bidden to worship him. Hebrews 1:6(KJV)

I pay homage to the exalted Redeemer, who is the faithful witness, the first-begotten from the dead, and the Prince of the kings of the earth, Revelation 1:5(KJV) confessing that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:11(KJV)

I also worship the Holy Ghost, the Comforter, whom the Son hath sent from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, who proceedeth from the Father, John 15:26(KJV) and who is sent to teach me all things and to bring all things to my remembrance; John 14:26(KJV) who indited the Scriptures, holy men of God writing them as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 1:21(KJV)
