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 | NASB

I must pray for grace to equip me for every good thought, word, and work, that I may not only be kept from sin, but may be in everything 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(NASB)

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 may I too walk in newness of life. Romans 6:4(NASB)

That the work of grace may be wrought where it has not yet begun.

Lord, teach transgressors Your ways, and let sinners be converted to You; Psalm 51:13(NASB) and let the disobedient be turned to the attitude of the righteous, and make ready a people prepared for the Lord. Luke 1:17(NASB)

Let those be quickened who are yet dead in trespasses and sins: Ephesians 2:1(NASB) Say to them, “Live!” Yes, say to them, “Live!” Ezekiel 16:6(NASB) And the time shall be a time for love. Ezekiel 16:8(NASB)

Open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified. Acts 26:18(NASB)

Because of the blood of Your covenant, set the prisoners free from the waterless pit, that they may return to the stronghold as prisoners who have hope. Zechariah 9:11-12(NASB)

Let the word of God prevail to the destruction of fortresses and the destroying of speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and let every thought be taken captive to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5(NASB)

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

Fulfill in me every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power. 2 Thessalonians 1:11(NASB)

Let the God who began a good work in me perfect it until the day of Christ. Philippians 1:6(NASB)

Accomplish, O God, what concerns me; Your lovingkindness, O LORD, is everlasting: do not forsake the work of Your hands. Psalm 138:8(NASB)

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