Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Acknowledge God’s Purity and Justice

Adoration 1.7 | KJV

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

Thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel: Psalm 22:3(KJV) Holy and reverend is thy name; Psalm 111:9(KJV) and I give thanks at the remembrance of thy holiness. Psalm 30:4(KJV)

Thou art of purer eyes than to behold iniquity; Habakkuk 1:3(KJV) neither shall evil dwell with thee. Psalm 5:4(KJV)

Thou art the Rock, thy work is perfect, all thy ways are truth and judgment; a God of truth, and in whom is no iniquity. Deuteronomy 32:4(KJV) Thou art my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in thee. Psalm 92:15(KJV)

Thou art holy in all thy works, Psalm 145:17(KJV) and holiness becomes thy house, O Lord, for ever. Psalm 93:5(KJV)

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

Righteous art thou, O God, when I plead with thee, Jeremiah 12:1(KJV) and wilt be justified when thou speakest and clear when thou judgest. Psalm 51:4(KJV)

Far be it from God that he should do wickedness, and from the Almighty that he should commit iniquity; for the work of a man shall he render unto him. Job 34:10-11(KJV)

Thy righteousness is as the great mountains, even then when thy judgments are a great deep! Psalm 36:6(KJV) And though clouds and darkness are round about thee, yet judgment and justice are the habitation of thy throne. Psalm 97:2(KJV)
