Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Acknowledge God’s Unchanging Truth and Greatness

Adoration 1.8 | NASB

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

You are good, and Your loving-kindness is everlasting. Psalm 136:1(NASB)

Your loving-kindness is great towards me, Psalm 117:2(NASB) and Your faithfulness is to all generations. Psalm 100:5(NASB)

You have proclaimed Your name: The LORD, the LORD God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in loving-kindness and truth, keeping loving-kindness for thousands, forgiving iniquity, transgression, and sin. Exodus 34:6-7(NASB) And this name of Yours is my strong tower. Proverbs 18:10(NASB)

You are good and do good, Psalm 119:68(NASB) good to all; and Your mercies are over all Your works. Psalm 145:9(NASB) But surely God is in a special manner good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart. Psalm 73:1(NASB)

O that You would make Your goodness pass before me, Exodus 33:19(NASB) that I may taste and see that the Lord is good, Psalm 34:8(NASB) and his loving-kindness may be always before my eyes. Psalm 26:3(NASB)

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.

Behold, these are but the fringes of His ways; and how faint a word I hear of God! But His mighty thunder, who can understand? Job 26:14(NASB)

Touching the Almighty – I cannot find Him; He is exalted in power, and He will not do violence to justice and abundant righteousness. Job 37:23(NASB) He is exalted far above all blessing and praise! Nehemiah 9:5(NASB)
