Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Beg for the Spirit’s Assistance in Prayer and Aim for God’s Glory

Adoration 1.19 | KJV

I must beg for the powerful assistance and influence of the blessed Spirit of grace in my prayers.

Lord, I know not what to pray for as I ought, but let thy Spirit help my infirmities and make intercession for me. Romans 8:26(KJV)

O pour upon me the Spirit of grace and supplication, Zechariah 12:10(KJV) the Spirit of adoption teaching me to cry, Abba, Father; Romans 8:15(KJV) that I may find in my heart to pray this prayer: O send out thy light and thy truth; let them lead me, let them guide me to thy holy hill and thy tabernacles; to God, my exceeding joy. Psalm 43:3-4(KJV)

O Lord, open thou my lips, and my mouth shall show forth thy praise. Psalm 51:15(KJV)

I must make the glory of God my highest end in all my prayers.

This is that which thou, O Lord, hast said, that thou wilt be sanctified in them that come nigh unto thee, and before all the people thou wilt be glorified. Leviticus 10:3(KJV) I therefore worship before thee, O Lord, that I may glorify thy name; Psalm 86:9(KJV) and therefore I call upon thee, that thou mayest deliver me, and I may glorify thee. Psalm 50:15(KJV)

For of thee and through thee and to thee are all things. Romans 11:36(KJV)
