Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Acknowledge God’s Incontestable Sovereignty and Irresistible Power

Adoration 1.6 | NIV

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

The highest heavens belong to the LORD, Psalm 115:16(NIV) and all the hosts of them. The earth is yours and everything in it, the world and all who live in it. Psalm 24:1(NIV) In your hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to you as well. The sea is yours, for you made it, and your hands formed the dry land. Psalm 95:4-5(NIV) Every animal of the forest is yours, and the cattle on a thousand hills. Psalm 50:10(NIV) You are therefore a great God, the great King above all gods. Psalm 95:3(NIV)

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

Your dominion is an eternal dominion; your kingdom endures from generation to generation: You do as you please with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back your hand or say to you, “What have you done?” Daniel 4:34-35(NIV) 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; no plan of yours can be thwarted. Job 42:2(NIV) You are strong; Psalm 62:11(NIV) and nothing is impossible with you. Luke 1:37(NIV)

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

You kill, and you make alive; you wound, and you heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of your hand. Deuteronomy 32:39(NIV)

You have power to do what you have promised. Romans 4:21(NIV)
