Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Own your Relation to God

Adoration 1.13 | NASB

I must declare this God to be my God and his own my relation to Him, His dominion over me, and propriety in me.

My soul has said to the LORD, “You are my God; I have no good besides You; Psalm 16:2(NASB) neither if I am righteous are You the better.” Job 35:7(NASB)

You are my King, O God: Psalm 44:4(NASB) Other masters besides You have ruled me; but through You alone I confess Your name. Isaiah 26:13(NASB)

I declare today the LORD to be my God, and endeavor by grace to walk in His ways and keep His statutes, His commandments, and His ordinances, and listen to His voice and give myself to Him, to be of His people, who are a treasured possession, as He has promised, that I might be among a consecrated people to the LORD my God; Deuteronomy 26:17-19(NASB) and may be to Him for renown, for praise, and for glory. Jeremiah 13:11(NASB)

O LORD, surely I am Your servant; I am Your servant born in Your house, and You have loosed my bonds; Psalm 116:16(NASB) I have been bought with a price, and therefore I am not my own; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20(NASB) and so I yield to the LORD, 2 Chronicles 30:8(NASB) and join myself to Him in an everlasting covenant that will never be forgotten. Jeremiah 50:5(NASB)

I am Yours, save me; for I seek Your precepts; Psalm 119:94(NASB) it is Yours, Lord, that I give You, and that which is from Your hand. 1 Chronicles 29:16(NASB)
