Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Praise God for His Heavenly Splendor and Glory

Adoration 1.9 | ESV

We must give to God the praise of that splendor and glory wherein he is pleased to manifest himself in the upper world.

You have established your throne in the heavens, Psalm 103:19(ESV) and it is a throne of glory, high and lifted up; and before you the seraphim cover their faces. Isaiah 6:1-2(ESV) And it is in compassion to your people that you hold back the face of that throne and spread a cloud over it. Job 26:9(ESV)

You make your messengers winds, and your ministers a flaming fire. Psalm 104:4(ESV) Thousands of thousands of them minister to you, and myriads of myriads stand before you, to do your pleasure. Revelation 5:11(ESV) They are mighty ones who obey the voice of your word. Psalm 103:20-21(ESV) And I have come by faith and hope and holy love into a spiritual communion with that innumerable company of angels in festal gathering and the spirits of the righteous made perfect, even to the assembly of the firstborn, in the heavenly Jerusalem. Hebrews 12:22-23(ESV)
