Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Reverently Adore God, Part 1

Adoration 1.2 | NIV

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, you wrap yourself in light as with a garment; Psalm 104:1-2(NIV) and yet to me you make darkness your canopy, Psalm 18:11(NIV) for I cannot draw up my case because of my darkness. Job 37:19(NIV)

This is the message which I have heard from you, and I set my seal to it that it is true: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all; 1 John 1:5(NIV) God is love; whoever lives in love, lives in God and God in him. 1 John 4:16(NIV)

You are the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows, and from whom comes every good and perfect gift. James 1:17(NIV)

You are the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. 1 Timothy 6:15-16(NIV)
