Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Acknowledge God’s Eternality and Omnipresence

Adoration 1.4 | KJV

Particularly in my adorations I must acknowledge:

That he is an eternal God, immutable, without beginning of days or end of life or change of time.

Thou art the King eternal, immortal, invisible. 1 Timothy 1:17(KJV)

Art thou not from everlasting, O Lord my God, my Holy One? Habakkuk 1:12(KJV) The everlasting God, even the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, who faintest not, neither art weary; there is no searching out of thine understanding. Isaiah 40:28(KJV)

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting thou art God; Psalm 90:2(KJV) the same yesterday, today, and for ever. Hebrews 13:8(KJV)

Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the works of thy hands: they shall perish, but thou shalt endure; yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment, as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed; but thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end. Psalm 102:25-27(KJV)

Thou art God and changest not; therefore is it that I am not consumed. Malachi 3:6(KJV)

That he is present in all places, and there is no place in which he is not included or out of which he is excluded.

Thou art a God at hand and not a God afar off; none can hide himself in secret places that thou canst not see him, for thou fillest heaven and earth. Jeremiah 23:23-24(KJV)

Thou art not far from every one of us. Acts 17:27(KJV)

I cannot go any whither from thy presence or fly from thy Spirit: If I ascend into heaven, thou art there; if I make my bed in hell, in the depths of the earth, behold thou art there; if I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me, Psalm 139:7-10(KJV) for I cannot outrun thee.
