Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for Grace to Sanctify your Nature

Petition 3.18 | KJV

To sanctify my nature, to plant in me all holy principles and dispositions, and to increase every grace in me.

The very God of peace sanctify me wholly; and I pray God, my whole spirit and soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of my Lord Jesus Christ; for faithful is he that calleth, who also will do it. 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24(KJV)

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me: Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy Holy Spirit away from me; restore unto me the joy of thy salvation, and uphold me with thy free Spirit. Psalm 51:10-12(KJV)

Write thy law in my heart, and put it in my inward part, Jeremiah 31:33(KJV) that I may be an epistle of Christ, written by the Spirit of the living God, not in a table of stone, but in a fleshly table of the heart; 2 Corinthians 3:3(KJV) that the law of my God being in my heart, none of my steps may slide, Psalm 37:31(KJV) and I may delight to do thy will, O God; Psalm 40:8(KJV) may delight in the law of God after the inward man. Romans 7:22(KJV)

O that I may obey from the heart that form of doctrine into which I desire to be delivered, as into a mould, Romans 6:17(KJV) that my whole soul may be leavened by it; Matthew 13:33(KJV) and that I may not be conformed to this world, but transformed by the renewing of my mind; Romans 12:2(KJV) may not fashion myself after my former lusts in my ignorance, but as an obedient child, may be holy in all manner of conversation, as he who hath called me is holy. 1 Peter 1:14-15(KJV)
