Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Acknowledge God’s Incontestable Sovereignty and Irresistible Power

Adoration 1.6 | KJV

That his sovereignty is incontestable, and he is the owner and absolute Lord of all.

The heavens, even the heavens are thine, Psalm 115:16(KJV) and all the hosts of them. The earth is thine, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. Psalm 24:1(KJV) In thy hand are the deep places of the earth, and the strength of the hills are thine also: The sea is thine, for thou madest it, and thy hands formed the dry land. Psalm 95:4-5(KJV) All the beasts of the forest are thine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. Psalm 50:10(KJV) Thou art therefore a great God, and a great King above all gods. Psalm 95:3(KJV)

In thy hand is the soul of every living thing and the breath of all mankind. Job 12:10(KJV)

Thy dominion is an everlasting dominion, and thy kingdom is from generation to generation: Thou dost according to thy will in the armies of heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth, and none can stay thy hand, or say unto thee, What doest thou? Daniel 4:34-35(KJV) or Why doest thou so?

That his power is irresistible, and the operations of it cannot be controlled.

I know, O God, that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee. Job 42:2(KJV) Power belongs to thee; Psalm 62:11(KJV) and with thee nothing is impossible. Luke 1:37(KJV)

All power is thine, both in heaven and earth. Matthew 28:18(KJV)

Thou killest, and thou makest alive; thou woundest, and thou healest: neither is there any that can deliver out of thy hand. Deuteronomy 32:39(KJV)

What thou hast promised thou art able also to perform. Romans 4:21(KJV)
