Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Recognize God’s Perfect Knowledge and Unsearchable Wisdom

Adoration 1.5 | KJV

That he hath a perfect knowledge of all persons and things, and sees them all, even that which is most secret, at one clear, certain, and unerring view.

All things are naked and open before the eyes of him with whom I have to do, even the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12-13(KJV)

Thine eyes are in every place beholding the evil and the good: Proverbs 15:3(KJV) They run to and fro through the earth, that thou mayest shew thyself strong on the behalf of those whose hearts are upright with thee. 2 Chronicles 16:9(KJV)

Thou searchest the heart and triest the reins, that thou mayest give to every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. Jeremiah 17:10(KJV)

O God, thou hast searched me and known me, thou knowest my down-sitting and my up-rising, and understandest my thoughts afar off. Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways: There is not a word in my tongue, but lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. Psalm 139:1-4(KJV) Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it. Psalm 139:6(KJV)

Darkness and light are both alike to thee. Psalm 139:12(KJV)

That his wisdom is unsearchable, and the counsels and designs of it cannot be fathomed.

Thine understanding, O Lord, is infinite, for thou tellest the number of the stars and callest them all by their names. Psalm 147:4-5(KJV)

Thou art wonderful in counsel and excellent in working; Isaiah 28:29(KJV) wise in heart and mighty in strength. Job 9:4(KJV)

O Lord, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom thou made them all; Psalm 104:24(KJV) all according to the counsel of thine own will. Ephesians 1:11(KJV)

O the depth of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and his ways past finding out! Romans 11:33 (KJV)
