Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Acknowledge God’s Incontestable Sovereignty and Irresistible Power

Adoration 1.6 | NASB

That His sovereignty is incontestable, and He is the owner and absolute Lord of all.

The heavens are Your heavens, Psalm 115:16(NASB) and all their hosts. The earth is Yours, and all it contains; the world, and those who dwell in it. Psalm 24:1(NASB) In Your hand are the depths of the earth, and the peaks of the mountains are Yours also. The sea is Yours, for it was You who made it, and Your hands formed the dry land: Psalm 95:4-5(NASB) Every beast of the forest is Yours, the cattle on a thousand hills. Psalm 50:10(NASB) You are therefore a great God and a great King above all gods. Psalm 95:3(NASB)

In Your hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind. Job 12:10(NASB)

Your dominion is an everlasting dominion, and Your kingdom endures from generation to generation: You do according to Your will in the host of heaven and among the inhabitants of earth; and no one can ward off Your hand or say to You, “What have You done?” Daniel 4:34-35(NASB) or “Why are You doing that?”

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

I know, O God, that You can do all things, and that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted. Job 42:2(NASB) Power belongs to You; Psalm 62:11(NASB) and with You nothing is impossible. Luke 1:37(NASB)

All authority is Yours, both in heaven and on earth. Matthew 28:18(NASB)

You put to death and give life; You have wounded, and it is You who heal, and there is no one who can deliver from Your hand. Deuteronomy 32:39(NASB)

What You have promised, You are able also to perform. Romans 4:21(NASB)
