Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Adoration 1.11 | NASB

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 homage to three that testify in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; for these three are one. 1 John 5:7(KJV)

I adore You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, Matthew 11:25(NASB) and the eternal Word, who was in the beginning with God and was God, through whom all things came into being, and apart from whom nothing came into being that has come into being; John 1:1-3(NASB) and who in the fullness of time, Galatians 4:4(NASB) became flesh and dwelt among us and showed His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14(NASB)

And since it is the will of God that all should honor the Son even as they honor the Father, John 5:23(NASB) I adore Him as the radiance of His Father’s glory and the exact representation of His nature; Hebrews 1:3(NASB) herein joining with the angels of God, who were all bidden to worship him. Hebrews 1:6(NASB)

I pay homage to the exalted Redeemer, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth, Revelation 1:5(NASB) confessing that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:11(NASB)

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