Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for God’s Grace to Equip you for Everything Good and to Beget and Sustain New Life

Petition 3.13 | KJV

I must pray for grace to furnish me for every good thought, word, and work, that I may not only be kept from sin, but may be in every thing as I should be, and do as I should do.

Let Christ be made of God to me not only righteousness, but wisdom, sanctification, and redemption. 1 Corinthians 1:30(KJV)

Let me be planted together in the likeness of Christ’s death and resurrection, that as he was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so I also may walk in newness of life. Romans 6:4(KJV)

That the work of grace may be wrought there, where it is not yet begun.

Lord, teach transgressors thy ways, and let sinners be converted unto thee; Psalm 51:13(KJV) and let the disobedient be turned to the wisdom of the just, and make ready a people prepared for the Lord. Luke 1:17(KJV)

Let those be quickened that are yet dead in trespasses and sins: Ephesians 2:1(KJV) Say unto them, Live; yea, say unto them, Live; Ezekiel 16:6(KJV) and the time shall be a time of love. Ezekiel 16:8(KJV)

Open their eyes, and turn them from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among them who are sanctified. Acts 26:18(KJV)

By the blood of the covenant send forth the prisoners out of the pit, in which is no water, that they may turn to the strong-hold as prisoners of hope. Zechariah 9:11-12(KJV)

Let the word of God prevail to the pulling down of strong-holds, and the casting down of the imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and let every thought be brought in obedience to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5(KJV)

That where it is begun it may be carried on and at length perfected, and the foundation that is well laid may be happily built upon.

Fulfill in me all the good pleasure of thy goodness and the work of faith with power. 2 Thessalonians 1:11(KJV)

Let the God that has begun a good work in me perform it unto the day of Christ. Philippians 1:6(KJV)

Perfect, O God, that which concerns me; thy mercy, O Lord, endures for ever: forsake not the work of thine own hands. Psalm 138:8(KJV)

Lord, let thy grace be sufficient for me, and let thy strength be made perfect in weakness, that where I am weak, there I may be strong, 2 Corinthians 12:9-10(KJV) strong in the Lord and the power of his might. Ephesians 6:10(KJV)
