Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Acknowledge God’s Unchanging Truth and Greatness

Adoration 1.8 | NIV

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

You are good, and your love endures forever. Psalm 136:1(NIV)

Your love is great toward me, Psalm 117:2(NIV) and your faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:5(NIV)

You have proclaimed your name: The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion, and sin. Exodus 34:6-7(NIV) And this name of yours is my strong tower. Proverbs 18:10(NIV)

You are good, and what you do is good, Psalm 119:68(NIV) good to all; and you have compassion on all you have made. Psalm 145:9(NIV) But surely God is in a special manner good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart. Psalm 73:1(NIV)

O that you would cause your goodness to pass in front of me, Exodus 33:19(NIV) that I may taste and see that the LORD is good, Psalm 34:8(NIV) and your love may be ever before me. Psalm 26:3(NIV)

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.

And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper I hear of him! Who then can understand the thunder of his power? Job 26:14(NIV)

The Almighty is beyond my reach and exalted in power; and in his justice and great righteousness, Job 37:23(NIV) he is exalted above all blessing and praise. Nehemiah 9:5(NIV)
