Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Grace to Direct your Conscience and Make you Wise

Petition 3.17 | KJV

To direct my conscience, to shew me the way of my duty, and to make me a wise, knowing, judicious Christian.

Lord, give me a wise and understanding heart, 1 Kings 3:9(KJV) that wisdom which in all cases is profitable to direct; Ecclesiastes 10:10(KJV) that wisdom of the prudent which is to understand his way. Proverbs 14:8(KJV)

This I pray, that my love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment, that I may discern things that differ and may approve things that are excellent; that I may be sincere and without offence unto the day of Christ, and may be filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ unto the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:9-11(KJV)

O that I may be filled with the knowledge of thy will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that I may walk worthy of God unto all-pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:9-10(KJV)

Teach me thy way, O God, and lead me in a plain path because of my observers. Psalm 27:11(KJV)

When I know not what to do, my eyes are up unto thee; 2 Chronicles 20:12(KJV) then let me hear the Lord behind me, saying, This is the way, walk in it, that I turn not to the right hand nor to the left. Isaiah 30:21(KJV)

Order my steps in thy word, and let no iniquity have dominion over me. Psalm 119:133(KJV)
