Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Acknowledge God’s Unchanging Truth and Greatness

Adoration 1.8 | KJV

That his truth is invariable, and the treasures of his goodness inexhaustible.

Thou art good, and thy mercy endureth for ever. Psalm 136:1(KJV)

Thy loving-kindness is great toward me, Psalm 117:2(KJV) and thy truth endureth to all generations. Psalm 100:5(KJV)

Thou hast proclaimed thy name: The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, slow to anger, abundant in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity, transgression, and sin. Exodus 34:6-7(KJV) And this name of thine is my strong tower. Proverbs 18:10(KJV)

Thou art good and doest good, Psalm 119:68(KJV) good to all; and thy tender mercy is over all thy works. Psalm 145:9(KJV) But truly God is in a special manner good to Israel, even to them that are of a clean heart. Psalm 73:1(KJV)

O that thou wouldest cause thy goodness to pass before me, Exodus 33:19(KJV) that I may taste and see that the Lord is good, Psalm 34:8(KJV) and his loving-kindness may be always before my eyes. Psalm 26:3(KJV)

Lastly, that when I have said all I can of the glorious perfections of the Divine nature, I fall infinitely short of the merit of the subject.

Lo, these are but parts of his ways, and how little a portion is heard of God! But the thunder of his power who can understand? Job 26:14(KJV)

Touching the Almighty, I cannot find him out; he is excellent in power and in judgment, and in plenty of justice; Job 37:23(KJV) he is exalted far above all blessing and praise. Nehemiah 9:5(KJV)
