Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Reverently Adore God, Part 1

Adoration 1.2 | NASB

I must reverently adore God, as a Being transcendently bright and blessed, self-existent and self-sufficient, an infinite and eternal Spirit who has all perfections in Himself, and give Him the glory of His titles and attributes.

O LORD my God, You are very great; You are clothed with splendor and majesty, covering Yourself with light as with a cloak; Psalm 104:1-2(NASB) and yet to me you make darkness Your hiding place, Psalm 18:11(NASB) for I cannot arrange my case because of darkness. Job 37:19(NASB)

This is the message that I have heard from you, and I set my seal to it that it is true: God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all; 1 John 1:5(NASB) God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God, and God abides in them. 1 John 4:16(NASB)

You are the Father of light, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow, and from whom proceeds every good thing and every perfect gift. James 1:17(NASB)

You are the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alones possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. 1 Timothy 6:15-16(NASB)
