Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Entreat God’s Favorable Acceptance

Adoration 1.18 | KJV

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

There be many that say, Who will show us any good? But this I say, Lord, lift up the light of thy countenance upon me, and that shall put gladness into my heart, more than they have whose corn and wine increaseth. Psalm 4:6-7(KJV)

I entreat thy favour with my whole heart, Psalm 119:58(KJV) for in this I labour, that whether present or absent, I may be accepted of the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:9(KJV)

Hear my prayer, O Lord, give ear to my supplications; in thy faithfulness answer me, Psalm 143:1(KJV) and be nigh unto me in all that which I call upon thee for; Deuteronomy 4:7(KJV) for thou never saidst to the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain. Isaiah 45:19(KJV)

Thou that hearest the young ravens which cry, Psalm 147:9(KJV) be not silent to me, lest if thou be silent to me, I be like them that go down to the pit. Psalm 28:1(KJV)

Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense, and the lifting up of my hands be acceptable in thy sight as the evening sacrifice. Psalm 141:2(KJV)
