Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Entreat God’s Favorable Acceptance

Adoration 1.18 | NIV

I must entreat God’s favorable acceptance of me and my poor performances.

Many are asking, “Who can show us any good?” But this I say, “Let the light of your face shine upon me, O LORD,” and that shall fill my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound. Psalm 4:6-7(NIV)

I have sought your face with all my heart, Psalm 119:58(NIV) for in this I labor, that whether at home in the body or away from it, I may please the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:9(NIV)

O LORD, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in your faithfulness come to my relief, Psalm 143:1(NIV) and be near me whenever I pray to you; Deuteronomy 4:7(NIV) for you have not said to Jacob’s descendants, “Seek me in vain.” Isaiah 45:19(NIV)

You who hear the young ravens when they call, Psalm 147:9(NIV) do not turn a deaf ear to me, for if you remain silent, I will be like those who have gone down to the pit. Psalm 28:1(NIV)

May my prayer be set before you like incense, and the lifting up of my hands be acceptable in your sight like the evening sacrifice. Psalm 141:2(NIV)
