Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Acknowledge God’s Purity and Justice

Adoration 1.7 | ESV

That he is a God of unspotted purity and perfect rectitude.

You are holy, O you who are enthroned on the praises of Israel: Psalm 22:3(ESV) Holy and awesome is your name, Psalm 111:9(ESV) and I give thanks to your holy name. Psalm 30:4(ESV)

You are of purer eyes than to see evil; Habakkuk 1:13(ESV) neither may evil dwell with you. Psalm 5:4(ESV)

You are the Rock, your work is perfect, all your ways are truth and justice; a God of faithfulness and without iniquity. Deuteronomy 32:4(ESV) You are my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in you. Psalm 92:15(ESV)

You are kind in all your works, Psalm 145:17(ESV) and holiness befits your house, O LORD, forevermore. Psalm 93:5(ESV)

That he is just in the administration of his government, and never did, nor ever will do, wrong to any of his creatures.

Righteous are you, O God, when I complain to you, Jeremiah 12:1(ESV) and you will be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment. Psalm 51:4(ESV)

Far be it from God that he should do wickedness, and from the Almighty that he should do wrong; for according to the work of a man he will repay him. Job 34:10-11(ESV)

Your righteousness is like the mountains of God, even when your judgments are like the great deep! Psalm 36:6(ESV) And though clouds and thick darkness are all around you, yet righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Psalm 97:2(ESV)
