Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Acknowledge God’s Eternality and Omnipresence

Adoration 1.4 | NIV

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.

You are the King eternal, immortal, invisible. 1 Timothy 1:17(NIV)

Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God; Psalm 90:2(NIV) the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8(NIV)

In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded. But you remain the same, and your years will never end. Psalm 102:25-27(NIV)

You are God and do not change; therefore is it that I am not destroyed. Malachi 3:6(NIV)

Are you not from everlasting, O LORD, my God, my Holy One? Habakkuk 1:12(NIV) The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. Isaiah 40:28(NIV)

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.

You are a God nearby and not a God far away; no one can hide himself in secret places so that you cannot see him, for you fill heaven and earth. Jeremiah 23:23-24(NIV)

You are not far from each one of us. Acts 17:27(NIV)

I cannot go anywhere from your presence or flee from your Spirit: If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, in the depths of the earth, you are there; if I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your right hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast, Psalm 139:7-10(NIV) for I can never outrun you.
