Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Grace to Direct your Conscience and Make you Wise

Petition 3.17 | NASB

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

Lord, give me a wise and understanding heart, 1 Kings 3:9(NASB) that wisdom which in all cases has the advantage of giving success; Ecclesiastes 10:10(NASB) that wisdom of the sensible which is to understand his way. Proverbs 14:8(NASB)

This I pray, that my love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, so that I may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:9-11(NASB)

O that I may be filled with the knowledge of Your will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that I may walk in a manner worthy of God, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:9-10(NASB)

Teach me Your way, O God, and lead me in a level path because of my observers. Psalm 27:11(NASB)

When I do not know what to do, my eyes are on You; 2 Chronicles 20:12(NASB) then let me hear the Lord behind me, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever I turn to the right or to the left. Isaiah 30:21(NASB)

Establish my footsteps in Your word, and do not let any iniquity have dominion over me. Psalm 119:133(NASB)
