Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for God’s Grace to Fortify you Against Satan’s Temptations

Petition 3.12 | KJV

And that the temptations of Satan may not overcome me.

I pray that I may not enter into temptation; Matthew 26:41(KJV) or, however, that no temptation may take me but such as is common to man. And let the faithful God never suffer me to be tempted above what I am able, but with the temptation make way for me to escape. 1 Corinthians 10:13(KJV)

Put upon me the whole armour of God, that I may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil, Ephesians 6:11(KJV) to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand; let my loins be girt about with truth, put on me the breast-plate of righteousness, and let my feet be shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Give me the shield of faith, wherewith I may quench all the fiery darts of the wicked, and the helmet of salvation; and let the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, be always ready to me. Ephesians 6:13-17(KJV)

Enable me to resist the devil, as that he may fly from me; James 4:7(KJV) to resist him steadfast in the faith. 1 Peter 5:9(KJV) And may you, the God of peace, tread Satan under your people’s feet, and do it shortly. Romans 16:20(KJV)
