Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Recognize God’s Perfect Knowledge and Unsearchable Wisdom

Adoration 1.5 | NIV

That he has 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.

Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom I must give account, even the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12-13(NIV)

Your eyes are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good: Proverbs 15:3(NIV) They range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to you. 2 Chronicles 16:9(NIV)

You search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve. Jeremiah 17:10(NIV)

O God, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways: Before a word is on my tongue, you know it completely, O LORD. Psalm 139:1-4(NIV) Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Psalm 139:6(NIV)

Darkness is as light to you. Psalm 139:12(NIV)

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

Your understanding, O Lord, is infinite, for You count the number of the stars and give names to all of them. Psalm 147:4-5(NASB)

You have made Your counsel wonderful and Your wisdom great; Isaiah 28:29(NASB) You are wise in heart and mighty in strength. Job 9:4(NASB)

O LORD, how many are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all; Psalm 104:24(NASB) all according to the counsel of Your will. Ephesians 1:11(NASB)

Oh, the depth of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways! Romans 11:33(NIV)
